Doo wop (That thing)    (video)

 

    D - Em - D - Em (2x)     +  D - Em - D - Em

 

             D

1. It's been three weeks since you were looking for your friend,

           Em

    the one you let hit it and never called you again.

             D

    Remember when he told you he was about the benjamins ?

            Em

    You act like you ain't hear him, and gave him a little trim.

               D

    To begin, how you think you're really going to pretend

     Em

    like you wasn't down and you called him again ?

                  D                                                                        Em

    Plus, when you give it up so easy, you ain't even foolin' him,

  

    if you did it then, then you'd probably fuck again.

 

D

    Talking out your neck, saying you're a Christian,

Em

    a Muslim, sleeping with the Gin,

              D

    now that was the sin that did Jezebel in.

        Em

    Who're you going to tell when the repercussions spin,

        D

    showing off your ass 'cause your thinking it's a trend ?

           Em

    Girlfriend, let me break it down for you again !

                D

    You know I only say it 'cause I'm truly genuine.

      Em

    Don't be a hard rock, when you really are a gem.

 

              D

    Baby girl ! Respect is just a minimum.

     Em

    Nigga's fucked up and you still defending him.

       D

    Now - Lauryn is only human.

              Em

    Don't think I haven't been through the same predicament.

              D

    Let it sit inside your head like a million women in Philly Penn.

          Em

    It's silly when girls sell their souls because of sin.

D

    Look at what you be in, hair weaves like

              Em

    Europeans, fake nails done by Koreans.

                   D

    Come again !

                                               Em

    Yo! A-When when come again! (Yeah-Yeah!)

                                      D

    When when come again!! (Yeah-Yeah!)

                                 Em

    My friend come again!!! (Yeah-Yeah!)

 

    D                                        - Em

Guys you know you'd better           watch out,

  D                                         Em

some girls, some girls are only about

          D                              Em

that thing, that thing, that thing !

           D                              Em

That thing, that thing, that thing !

 

     D

2.       The second verse is dedicated to the men

                     Em

    more concerned with his rims and his Tim's than his women.

       D

    Him and his men, come in the club like hooligans,

              Em

    don't care who they offend, popping yin (Like you got yang !).

               D

    Let's stop pretend, the ones that pack pistols by the waist me,

      Em

    cristall by the case men, still living in his Mother's basement.

              D

    The pretty face men claiming that they be the "big men"

Em

    need to take care of their three and four kids.

                   D

    But they face a court case when the child support's late,

       Em

    money taking and heart breaking.

 

    Now you wonder why women hate men,

                        D

    the sneaky silent men, the punk domestic violence men.

       Em

    Quick to shoot the semen, stop acting like boys and be men !

D

    How you gonna win, when you ain't right within ? !

Em

    How you gonna win, when you ain't right within ? !

D

    How you gonna win, when you ain't right within ? !

Em

    Unh-Unhh, come again ! Yo-Yo, come again !

        D                     Em           D                    Em

    Bredrin, come again ! Sit straight, come again !

                 D                       Em

    Watch out, watch out ! Look out, look out !

                 D                       Em

    Watch out, watch out ! Look out, look out !

                 D                       Em

    Watch out, watch out ! Look out, look out !

                 D                       Em

    Watch out, watch out ! Look out, look out !

That thing, that thing, that thing !

 

    D                                        - Em

That thing, that thing, that thing !

 

   D                                        - Em
