"Sundown" as written by and Keys/wiseman....
Yo I could see her lying back in a satin dress
In a room where you do what you don't confess
She was a high pocket rumblin', movin' in the oven'in
Turntable in turnta B what's the deal

Somtimes I rhyme slow
Sometimes I rhyme quick
When it's time to get busy
Out the hat comes a trick

So when the sun goes down you better take care
If I find you've been creepin' 'round my back stair

Sundown you better take care
If I find you've been creepin' 'round my back stair

She's a queen, lookin' mean, and a sailor's dream
She gotta come clean, say what she mean
She's gotta fess up, yo is her dress up?
Oh indeed, and tell 'em how it is B
Bring em up to speed

Sometimes I rhyme slow
Sometimes I rhyme quick
When it's time to get busy
Out the hat comes a trick

It's a shame when the game leaves you out the frame
It's the love for the sinister losing it again

Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feeling better
When I'm feeling no pain

See I could picture every move a man could make
You took steps, you fell in love and that's your first mistake
You in a hole, gotta poll, but you shimmy up the wrong way

Hey yo the sun's going down
And I feel like it's my last day

Sundown you better take care
If I find you've been creepin' round my back stair

Sometimes I think it's a sin
When I feel like I'm winning
When I'm losing again

Yo sometimes the silence
Is just so valuable sometimes

She lay her head down
Pink frown, sad 'cause she's lost out
A big city hat who goes for minds one trip
Day by day with sunshine soak in a room back sunlight

Yo I could see her lying back in a satin dress
In a room where you do what you don't confess
Sundown
Sundown
Sundown

I could picture every move a man could make
Getting lost in a lot, that's your first mistake
Sundown
Sundown
Sundown

She was looking fast in the faded jeans
Now she's a hard lovin' woman
Gotta know what I mean
She stepped up in the spot
She made the spot hot
Give it away, give it away yeah

Sometimes I think its a shame
When I get feeling better
When I'm feeling no pain
And sundown you better take care
If I find you've been creepin' round my back stair

Sundown you better take care
If I find you've been creepin' round
Find you've been creepin' round my back stair
And sometimes I think it's a sin
When I think like I'm winning when I'm losing again
I'm losing again
I'm losing again
I'm losing again
I'm losing again
I'm losing again
I'm losing again
I'm losing again
I'm losing again
