"Keep It Down" as written by Dallas L Austin, Lonnie Rashid Lynn and Dion Wilson....
Hey what you know
Outside of the beastie boys show
Saw that kid that tried to get with me
He said by the way where ya been
Are you still wit that boyfriend
I said no way and he would grin
Want to hook up but I thought again

Meet him on the train one day
When I was wrapped in pain
He said I love you
In more ways than I ever heard
And before I got his name I thought it might be ok
To use for service to take some pain away

I know guys that talk around town
Girls like me want to keep it down
Dope boy freshen with all your clothes
Pop that girl if anything goes
Yeah beat boys want all the fame
Girls get hurt when you play that game
You weren't concerned with how I feel
No thank you I'd rather chill

Hey what's the deal
I'll let you know if things get ill
Can't hook up when you call the shots me
But ya got things that I'd like to see
Soft porn doesn't do it for me
I don't like sex and drugs wit me
I don't like sex and drugs wit me

And one day on the train
I'd never leave me man stray
I don't deserve this
In more ways than I ever heard
But instead of bein' scared
His words just went straight to me head
And I got nervous and left my love away

I know guys that talk around town
Girls like me want to keep it down
Dope boy freshen with all your clothes
Pop that girl if anything goes

Yeah beat boys want all the fame
Girls get hurt when you play that game
You weren't concerned in how I feel
No thank you I'd rather chill

I know guys that talk around town
Girls like me want to keep it down
Dope boy freshen with all your clothes
Pop that girl if anything goes

Yeah beat boys want all the fame
Girls get hurt when you play that game
You weren't concerned in how I feel
No thank you I'd rather chill

    General CommentThere are a few typos/wrong words.

    But, the song is about how she was really upset with her boyfriend. She bumped into a boy on the train who asked her out on a date, and she thought to herself how she'll use the boy to relieve some stress. Finally, she realizes she'll only end up hurting herself more in the end.

    Pretty awesome song.
