It was too late

Like 2AM

on a Tuesday

Yeah

 

She was wearing all red

Like her cherry corvette

Yeah

 

So what’s up, where you stay at?

Oh, me, I’m from the North Side

But no I’m not a low life

I’ve got plans, girl

I’m the man with the answers

Ha, okay, you can laugh, but can you dance, girl?

With me, yeah, I’m talkin’ ‘bout

This dance floor won’t cut itself

 

Dance like you’re from somewhere other than the East

Dance like you wanna, I know you ain’t naive

I know you bad - like me

I know you act - like me

When no one’s around - you’re like me

Just a bad motha- with a dream

 

It was too late

Like 2AM

on a Tuesday

Yeah

 

She got us there real fast

In her cherry corvette

Yeah

 

Oh, damn, this nice place

You said your folks left for Spain? 

So right now, it’s our place

From the swimming pool to the bar

The Enzo in the garage

You can get undressed, huh?

I can be the best audience

 

Dance like you’re from somewhere other than the East

Dance like you wanna, I know you ain’t naive

I know you bad - like me

I know you act - like me

When no one’s around - you’re like me

Just a bad motha- with a dream

 

It was too late

Like 2AM

on a Tuesday

Yeah

 

She was moving real slow

Up in her own world 

 

So tell me, does your daddy have a safe somewhere?

Ah, girl, I’m just playin’ round - I mean, we’re just playin’ house

But you know where it is, don’t you?

Have you every thought what that money could do?

I’ll be the driver if you get the loot 

 

Then she said this ain’t my house

Then she said that ain’t my car

I stole that motherfucker, broke in

I needed a man to pin it on

x2

 

Dance like you’re from somewhere other than the East

Dance like you wanna, I know you ain’t naive

I know you bad - like me

I know you act - like me

When no one’s around - you’re like me

Just a bad mother- from the East

Cherry Corvette
