[Intro - Lil' Jon]
Usher...
Lil' Jon...
Ludacris...

[Usher (with Lil' Jon)]
Yeah, man
Once again, it's on (It's on)
You know we had to do it again, right?

[Lil' Jon]
We had to do it again, boy
Want you to sing to these ladies, man

[Usher (with vocalizing)]
(Ohh-oh-oh-ohh)
A'ight, so I'm up first? A'ight, lemme have it...
(Ohh-oh-oh-ohh)
Let's do it...

[1st Verse - Usher]
Baby, how ya doin'?
Hope that 'cha fine, wanna know what you got in mind,
And I'm,
Got me fiendin' like Jodeci, girl, I can't leave you alone,
Take a shot of this here Petrone' and it's gon' be on,
V.I.P. done got way too crowded,
I'm about to end up callin' it a night,
You should holla at 'cha girl, tell her you shake it and seized,
Pull off, beep-beep, shotgun in the GT with me
She said, "Ohhh-ohhh, I'm ready to ride, yeah,"
"'Cause once you get inside, you can't change your mind,"
"Don't mean to sound impatient, but you gotta promise, baby, ohh..."

[Chorus - Usher]
Tell me again (Tell me again, my baby),
That we'll be Lovers and Friends (Ohh, I gotta know, baby, aw yeah)
Tell me again (Make sho' you right, ohh, before we leave),
That we'll be Lovers and Friends (Ohh, it's a good look, baby)...

[2nd Verse - Ludacris]
Sometimes wanna be your lover,
Sometimes wanna be your friend,
Sometimes wanna hug ya,
Hold hands, slow-dance while the record spins,
Opened up your heart 'cause you said I made you feel so comfortable,
Used to play back then, now you all grown-up like Rudy Huxtable,
I could be your Bud, you could beat me up,
Play-fight in the dark, then we both make love,
I'd do anything just to feel your butt,
Why you got me so messed up?
I don't know, but you gotta stop trippin',
Be a good girl now, turn around, and get these whippings,
You know you like it like that,
You don't have to fight back,
Here's a pillow - fight...that,
And I'll be settin' seperate plays,
So on all these separate days,
Your legs can go they separate...ways...

[Chorus - Usher]
Tell me again (Tell me again, my baby),
That we'll be Lovers and Friends (Ohh, it's a good look, baby)
Tell me again (Tell me over-and-over-and-over again),
That we'll be Lovers and Friends (Make sho' you right, before you choose)...

[3rd Verse - Lil' Jon]
I's been know you fo' a long time (shawty),
But fuckin' never crossed my mind (shawty),
But tonight, I seen sumthin' in ya (shawty),
That made me wanna get wit 'cha (shawty),
But you ain't been nuttin' but a friend to me (shawty),
And a nigga never ever dreamed to be (shawty),
Up in here, kissin', huggin', squeezin', touchin' (shawty),
Up in the bathtub, rub-a-dubbin' (shawty),
Are you sure you wanna go this route? (shawty),
Let a nigga know before I pull it out (shawty),
I would never ever cross the line (shawty),
Shawty, let me hear ya tell me one mo' time...one mo' time...

[Chorus - Usher]
Tell me again (Tell me again, my baby),
That we'll be Lovers and Friends (Ohh, it's a good look, baby)
Tell me again (Make sho' you right, ohh, before we leave),
That we'll be Lovers and Friends (Tell me over-and-over-and-over again)...

[Outro - Usher]
Oh-oh-hoo
Oh-oh-hoo
Oh-oh-hoo-ohhhh-yeaaah...

[Ludacris (with Lil' Jon)]
Please tell your Lovers and Friends,
That Usher, Jon, and Luda had to do it again (Hey!! (Hey!!)
Please tell your Lovers and Friends,
That Usher, Jon, and Luda had to do it again, that's right (Hey!! (Hey!!)
Please tell your Lovers and Friends,
That Usher, Jon, and Luda had to do it again (Hey!! (Hey!!)...

    General Commentokay....someone with better idea please explain this to me.
    because this is either one of the sweetest songs ive ever heard and hes telling his best friend how he loves her
    OR
    hes just being an asshole and being like well...we were just friends but...you look hot tonight so id tap that, but we are just friends with benefits.

    haha someone who knows for sure, or at least has some speculation...let me know...thanks

    General CommentSorry thumbelina, but your second guess sounds right. These three guys are dick-heads and just wanting to be friends with benefits. See:
    '" And I'll be settin' seperate plays,
    So on all these separate days,
    Your legs can go they separate...ways" -
    Separate plays are other girls he's doing-
    So on all these separate days your legs can go theiry separate ways..." that just means that he's doing her in the mean time of doing other women. Yeah, I didn't get it either until I read the lyrics. So I'm going to be removing this song from my "Happy love" cd...it just pisses me off now. :-D

    General Commentyeah....after listening to the song 800 more times i came to the same conclusion. its amazing how many songs out there sound totally sweet until you really listen to it.
    i mean, at least this guy is sort of...nice about it though. he seems to have a lot of respect for the girl,i mean. ive heard a lot worse :/

    General CommentI never thought about this song that way untill i someone mentioned the friends with benifets idea. I also think however that it could still be about someone who falls in love with a good freind. It's easy to have a great friendship with sombody and for that friendship to blossom into love.
    Both theories make sense, but i choose to believe mine cause i can relate to it :)
