Every time I'm walking all down the street
Some pretty mama (woman) start breaking down on me

Stop breaking down
Baby (Mama), please, stop breaking down
Stuff (Shit) is going to bust you brains out, baby
Yeah, it's going to make you lose your mind

You Saturday night women, now, you just ape and clown
You don't do nothing but tear my reputation down

All right, all right

I love my baby 99 degree
That mama got a pistol, laid it down on me

Ah come on, come on...

One more time
