Song Lyrics


(feat. Lily Allen)

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

Love`s not a mystery, it`s everything

She was the type to watch Oprah and the Today Show

Be on the treadmill, uh, like "Okay, go"

Had a body, A body that you can`t pay fo`

That mean she had some Ds on her but they wasn`t fake though

Had a drive for a drive for Rodeo

She spent pesos on those labels

Spin class at the gym, strip tease on a pole

She was so obsessed with her body and clothes

To every party she goes, tryin hard to be chose

They say it`s hard for a pimp but extra hard for these (hoes)

Readin Us and People Mag, tryna get the scoop

Chasin a actor for a Bentley Coupe

She been through the ball player from the Clippers, then came the pumps

All thinkin she number one where she was just a jumpoff

Doin all she can for a man and a baby

Drivin herself crazy like the astronaut lady

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

Love`s not a mystery, it`s everything

He had paper since we was in we was in high school

Pop was a doc, mom taught at my school

Lock with the rocks, in his ears he kept jewels

One of the Diddy types, da D-D-Dame Dash dudes

Pushed a Maserati Sport, readin the Robb Report

Wanted to be Mike but he was never live at sports

Since golf is in he was on the drivin course

To live the rap life is what he was strivin for

Spendin cash at the bar to get credit

Drinkin Chaundon just because Big said it

They say Ye is but dude was big headed

Rocked the fur in the summer so somebody`d pet it

He had a fetish for shoes that`s athletic

Pathetic on his MySpace page half nekkid

It`s a shame what they do for fame and to be respected

Joe, you coulda got it if you never woulda stressed it

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

Love`s not a mystery, it`s everything

They was one of them couples, people said they were the it

Unbreakable, like Bobby and Whit

Or Ryan and Reese, or Kimora and Russ

Relationships can be dead but look live to us

I guess we all been through it where we try too much

Losin yourself and you`re lyin and stuff

Wishin for the diamond cuffs, in search of a ring

Where love is not a mystery it`s everything

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

It`s this thing now, that`s drivin` me wild

I gotta see what`s up before it gets me down

Love`s not a mystery, it`s everything

Gets me down

Gets me down

Gets me down

Gets me down

Gets me down

Gets me

Love`s not a mystery, it`s everything
