Things That Make You Go Hmmmm - The Hit Co.
Things that make you go, hmm
I was at the crib, sitting by the fireplace
Drinking cocoa on the bear skin rug
The door bell rang, who could it be?
Thought to myself then started to shrug
Got to the door, ding dong, who is it?
My girl's best friend had payed me a visit
Sly as can be tight dress and all
She knew that I was faithful,
I really didn't have the gall
I tried to chill, she made the move
Now, I know my girlfriend wouldn't approve
I didn't realize my girl was setting me up
Yo, my girlfriend didn't trust me, no
Yeah, but she lost control,
I wouldn't take the bait
I said, "Chill baby, baby chill baby, baby wait"
My girl bust in, caught us creating a boom
She said, "Girlfriend"?
Things that make you go, hmm, hey
Things that make you go, hmm, hmm, hmm
It's the things that make you go, oh, oh, oh
Here's how it started
Just an example of how another brother can trample
Ruin your life, sleep with your wife
Watch your behind
There was a friend of mine named Jay
Would come over late at night and say, "Hey"
I watched the fight, I thought is was alright
'Cause me and Jay who were really really tight
So damned close we had the same blood type
Months went by and my wife got big
We were having a child and I got another gig
So I let Jay move into the crib and chill
He had his own room and helped pay the bills
The time had come for the baby down to the scene
It looked like Jay and I couldn't believe
Before my eyes in the delivery room
The things that make you go, hmm
It's the things that make you go, hmm, hmm, hmm
Robbie Rob, break it down
Give it to me, give it to me...
Seventeen and I was having a ball
Eleventh grade and Joe, I knew it all
I fall in love for the very first time
With this girl she really blew my mind
Inner sense and whole lotta class
Style that could give you whiplash
We said, "Hello" and my heart beat stopped
She was the world and I was on top
Time went by, she filled my universe
We made love, she said, "I was the first"
My boy kept telling me, yo, I don't know
I think your girl's been playing tic tac toe
I'll ask my girl I know she only loves me
Wasn't I the one who took your virginity?
The look on her face read sorrow and gloom
She said, "Yeah, why do you guys always ask that?
It's the things that make you go, hmm
Hey ladies, have you ever had a man?
Go away for business, come back with a tan
Comes home late at night from work
You cooked him dinner now you feel like a jerk
Saying he didn't have time to eat
And he's not even hungry, he wants to retreat
To the bedroom he said his head hurts
You're only making love in radical spurts
Mysterious calls and the phone goes click
You say to yourself, "I'm gonna hit him with a brick"
Ain't no way he could be cheating on me
I wonder who bought him those B.V.D.'s
Dressed to a T to hang with the fellas
Over the guys and I'm getting jealous
Coming home late smelling like perfume, fume
