"Happy Valentines Day" as written by and Andre Benjamin....
My name is Cupid Valentino, the modern day Cupid
And I just want to say one thing

Happy Valentine's Day
Every day the 14th!
I don't think y'all heard me!
I just want to say Happy Valentine's Day!
Every day the 14th!
Can y'all dig that?
Now when arrows don't penetrate, see
Cupid grabs the pistol (Uh, yeah, now, now lookie here!)
He shoots straight for your heart
Now, and he won't miss you!
But that's alright y'all won't believe in me anyways
But

You won't believe in me, but you would fancy leprechauns or groundhogs
No thank you, Easter Bunny!
(There's all this talk about Santa Claus, but see love will rule reign supreme)

Happy Valentine's Day
Every day the 14th! (You got it!)
When Cupid knocks at your door
You can't ignore me!
There's no need to run!
So, Happy Valentine's Day (Hey!)
Every day the 14th!
Now I may have it all wrong, see
If you know what loves mean
Well, somebody tell me!
'Cause they just don't believe in me!

You won't believe in me, but you would fancy leprechauns or groundhogs
No thank you, Easter Bunny!
(There's so much fuss about Santa Claus, but see Cupid will not be defeated!)

Happy Valentine's Day
Every day the 14th!
Now I know your hearts have grown cold
And that bothers me
Now I understand 'cause I use to be a bad boy in my day
I know you're trying to protect your lil' feelings
But you can't run away
Oh oh!

You won't believe in me, but you would fancy
(Hey! Don't you supposed to be some kind of player or something?)
Bunny!

Well keep on runnin', playa
'Cause I got my good shoes on
And I got 'em tied up tight
So, you're going to find out tonight!

Got a sweet lil' darling back in my corner
Below I know I love her, but act like I don't want her
Surrounded by the lonely, but yet feel like a loner
Could be an organ donor
The way I give up my heart, but
Never know because shit, I never tell her!
Ask me how I'm feelings I'd holla' that it's irrela'
I don't get myself caught up in the Jello gella'
And puddin' pops, that others opt to call falling in love, but
For the record, have you ever rode a horse?
Like for you to take me to Pluto?
I said, "Of course!"
But if you ain't a sweety indeedy, I won't endorse
Hans Solo till I'm hit by the bullet, so may the force
Be with you, and I'll hit you when better time permits
For now, show me samples, examples of why you're the shit!
But how am I to know with the profession that I'm in?
And if you do not know me, then how could you be my friend?

Happy Valentine's, Happy Valentine's
Happy Valentine's Day, Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's, Happy Valentine's
Happy Valentine's Day, Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's, Happy Valentine's
Happy Valentine's Day, Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's, Happy Valentine's
Happy Valentine's Day, fuck that Valentine's Day

Fuck that Valentine, fuck that Valentine
Fuck that Valentine's day, fuck that Valentine's day

Fuck that Valentine, fuck that Valentine
Fuck that Valentine's day, fuck that Valentine's day

    General Commentwhen i listen to this i visualize andre 3000 as cupid......he's chasing people who's running from love, and eventually he sees it as a regular ass job.....after "work" he goes home to his girlfriend and the ill effects of having to chase people all day for a living in the name of love have changed his perception of love AND people, he can't express his true feelings because of the bitterness towards his "job" and it's completely affecting his personality.....basically this song is Cupid fed up with people AND his job

    General CommentThis disc took me a minute to get used to, but I cannot deny everything Andre touches turns gold...better yet, platinum! Good song. It's deep, even though it's light hearted.

    General CommentOk the song is pretty self explanatory. Everyone is tired of Cupid and love and Cupid is fed up with it. He can't understand how people believe in Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny but not him.
    He also says that he understands he has caused trouble when it comes to love but he is going to fix it and everyone should believe in Cupid

    My InterpretationWrong Wrong Wrong.
    It goes without saying that 3000 is incredibly gifted. I have always noticed that he has had a special interest in understating love and relationships...and thats what the Love Below is all about it. Imagine Cupid (True Love) talking to 3 Stacks. Now 3000 is the big time rapper has been through a lot of women

    "Hey! Don't you supposed to be some kind of player or something?"
    "But how am I to know with the profession that I'm in?"

    Cupid is telling Andre if you don't believe in real love why do you believe in other fantastical things (not Santa or the Easter Bunny but ideas)

    As you get older and keep going through girls you "run" away from the idea of "True Love" but it keeps after you the farther you get

    "Well keep on runnin', player
    'Cause I got my good shoes on
    And I got 'em tied up tight
    So, you're going to find out tonight!"

    3000 thinks cause hes of a certain stereotype involving girls that he cant share his feelings saying he does not want to get involved with all the things that come with a relationship

    "Got a sweet lil' darling back in my corner
    Below I know I love her, but act like I don't want her
    Surrounded by the lonely, but yet feel like a loner
    Could be an organ donor
    The way I give up my heart, but
    Never know because ? shit, I never tell her!
    Ask me about my feelings I'd holla' that it's irrela'
    I don't get myself caught up in the Jello gella'"

    But cupid says that this so called true love can take him to new heights:

    For the record, have you ever rode a horse?
    Would I like for you to take me to Pluto?
    I said, "Of course!"

    In a conversation with cupid he basically says if your not mature enough and ripe to be involved in a relationship then don't. Goodluck till then but In the meantime give him examples why he's the shit going through a a bunch of girls (sarcasm). Then finally ponders how cupid could help him if hes never made an effort to do what cupid tells him to do. Its like a Christianity god or cupid in this case is always there for you. If you choose to work hard love will be there to be your friend.

    But if you ain't a sweety indeedy, I won't endorse
    Hans Solo till I'm hit by the bullet, so may the force
    Be with you, and I'll hit you when better time permits
    For now, give me examples of why you're the shit!
    But how am I to know with the profession that I'm in?
    And if you do not know me, then how could you be my friend?

    My interpretation.
