Do I have to put my handcuffs on you mama,
do I have to keep you under lock and key?
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you mama?
Now we both know that's not how it should be!

Do I have to put my handcuffs on you mama?
You're a sweet, fine sexy woman and you're good to a man
Cuz if I have to put my handcuffs on you mama,
I hope that you will understand!

If I have to keep you barefoot and pregnant
Oh, to keep you here in my world
(Lay down, girl) lay down and take off-a your shoes
Cause I'm a-gonna do to you
What it is I got to do

If we've been bonding like you say that we do
I think you don't mind if I'd be possessive, now would you?
You preach about lovin', you know it is to blame
that's why I can ask you and not even feel ashamed.

Do I have to put my handcuffs on you mama?
Are you susceptable to flatter, and game? Lord we can ga-ame,
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you mama?
Will you submit to the first human to call your name?

Cuz if I have to put my handcuffs on you mama
Don't you know I know that that would be uncouth,
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you mama,
I don't mind, I'll offer the moon, yeah
Yeah, I'll be the fool

I don't care if I'm looking like a chauvinistic kind of whatever
(some kind) Carl you can go to hell
And if I find out I need some help
I'm gonna pull on out my chastity belt
(what it is! I got to do)

If we've been bonding like you say that we do,
then you won't mind if I be possessive, now would you
Your creature-locked lovin', you know it's the flame,
that's why I can ask you and not even feel ashamed.

Do I have to put my handcuffs on you mama,
do I have to keepyou under lock and key?
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you mama?
Now we both know that's not how it should be!

Do I have to put my handcuffs on you mama?
Are you susecptible to flatter, and game? Lord we can ga-ame,
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you mama?
You're a sweet fine sexy woman and you're good to a man...


Oh, do I have to put my hand cuffs on you, mama?
Hopin' you, hopin' you will understand...[fade out]

    General CommentSomeone needs to proof read this song - I'm really unsure about a couple of the lyrics, mostly at the places where I put the question marks in parentheses.

    General CommentAlmost like that, but for the third verse i get:

    If I have to keep you barefoot and pregnant
    Oh, to keep you here in my world
    (Lay down, girl) lay down and take off-a your shoes
    Cause I'm a-gonna do to you
    What it is I got to do

    Fourth verse third line could be:
    You preach about lovin', you know it is to blame
    but yours could be right.

    Fifth verse, fourth line, i've got:
    Will you submit to the first human to call your name?

    Sixth verse, fourth line:
    I don't mind, I'll offer the moon, yeah
    Yeah, I'll be the fool

    and at the end of my version he sings:
    Oh, do I have to put my hand cuffs on you, mama?
    Hopin' you, hopin' you will understand...[fade out]



    It's about bondage, of course.

    General CommentBondage.... You're a funny person, azkm.

    This is a love song, a funny, non-serious love song. And a great love song at that.
