    That d*ck make my soul smile
    That d*ck make me so damn proud
    Now lay your head down on the pillow
    Turn the lights down real low
    I want you to say my name
    Close your eyes and let your feels go
    Now you're gettin' real close
    Baby, I am on the way

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Now that I've got you right here
    I won't let you down, down

    [Chorus]
    Don't be surprised, baby, it's just me (Just me)
    Don't be surprised, boy, when I bust it wide
    I hypnotize you with this p*ssy (P*ssy)
    Now you feel like you can fly

    [Refrain]
    I got you sprung off in the spring time
    F*ck all your free time
    You don't need no me time
    That's you and me time
    We be gettin' so loud
    That d*ck make my soul smile
    That d*ck make me so proud, ooh, oh
    Now lay your head down on the pillow
    I'ma fuck you real slow
    Need to hear you say my name
    Close your eyes and let your feels go

    Baby, I am on the way

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Now that I've got you right here
    I won't let you down, down

    [Chorus]
    Don't be surprised, baby, it's just me (Just me)
    Don't be surprised, boy, when I bust it wide
    I hypnotize you with this p*ssy (P*ssy)
