Give it up, give it up, you know what's on my mind
Give it up, give it up, you've been wasting too much time
You know I got what you want, see'mon, you're 'bout to blow my mind
Give it up, give it up, you've been wasting too much time
Give it, give it up, yeah, you know what's on my mind
Yeah! 
Patiently I've waited, baby, waited just for you
And I ain't gonna move an inch until you do what you're supposed to do
You've got your thing together, I can dig it too
And that's the very reason I'm stickin' here with you
Give it, give it up, you know what I'm talking about (can you dig it?) 
Give it up, give it up, yeah, you make me shout
Give it to me
You may think you're lookin' cool but I know what's on your mind
And if you want to get with me you gotta spend a little more time
I ain't the kind of girl that falls, falls at the drop of a hat
I can see right through your game, I just ain't goin' for that
Give it up, give it up, baby, don't take so long
It's right around the corner, get it and bring it on home
Give it, give it up, yeah, you make me shout
Give it up, give it up, you know that's what I'm talking about
Give it up, give it up, you know what I'm talking about
won't' you give it, give it up, girl, oh, you make me shout
Won't you give it up, give it up, girl, get it and bring it on home
Give it up, give it up, girl, baby, don't take too long
Don't take so long
Hell, I'm stickin' right here
