"Charmaine" as written by Benjamin Paul Ballance-drew, Jerry Fuller and Fraser Lance Thorneycroft Smith....
The first day I saw her was at the train station
She was half black, half Caucasian
At first, yo, I thought she was Asian
But as I get a bit closer her origin in blatant
The best of both worlds, caramel complexion
And I swear when she smiled I almost, got an erection
Piercing green eyes, they shine like emeralds
When she, gave me the wink I could only think with my genitals
She tells me her name as soon as I approach her
It's Charmaine, Charmaine De la Rosa
I say, "is that Spanish" she says, "yeah" I say, "kosher"
Whole time I'm imagining what it would be like to dose her
Train pulls up and we get on it together
Duration of the journey get to know each other better
We exchange numbers and agree to meet up afterwords
She blows me a kiss and with that I departed

Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you, is way out of line
Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you, is way out of line

One week and 20 pound phone credit later
I don't just wanna seduce this girl, now I wanna date her
She got a great personality and sense of humor
Next time we meet it just cant come any sooner
We arrange to go out for a drink at a bar
She's already there when I arrive and she looks the part
Even more stunning than I remember
Fuck it, drop-dead gorgeous
Her ass is tight and her breasts are bloody enormous
Hand in hand we walk over to the doorman
He's got a big shiny head yo he looks like George Foreman
He lets her through and asks me for i.D
I'm like "what the hell you talking 'bout man, I'm 19!"
I whip my drivers license out and he lets me in
Then I trip over a step, how embarrassing
Charmaine let's to see it all but pretends not to see
I feel like a fool, she just thinks its sweet

Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you, is way out of line
Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you, is way out of line

The night goes a lot smoother than planned
Apart from the little hick-up at the start it's all gone grand
Whenever guys try to chat her up, she shows them the hand
Turns down every dance saying I'm her man
We get a cab back to my place where we get it on
I take off my shirt, she strips right down to the thong
I marvel at her body, voluptuous curves
Shes a real woman, no doubt about it, her
Confidence is sky high
Shes the one who's got me on my back
Shes saying "baby this is your night"
I'm like "alright, its worth a go I suppose"
So, we switch roles and she takes full control
She starts slow, grinding me softly
Whilst kissing, yeah, shes doing me properly
Its when I start thinking, man
This girls gotta be from outta this world or something because she's shocking me
Never felt like this before this was more than sex
Sex was something that you had with skets
Something the next day you regret with a
Girl you wish that you had never met
Na ah, no way man, this had to be love
I couldn't believe I was saying it, but that's what it was
Like a leaf in the autumn, I had fallen
After that nothing else seemed important

Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you, is way out of line
Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you, is way out of line

So now it's time to hear my predicament, my catch 22
I loved this girl but now I have to cut her loose
So I was talking to one of my boys the very next day
And I, told him all about me and Charmaine
He looks at me in a very strange way
And asks me if De La Rosa is her surname
If shes, mixed race and her eyes are green
I say "yeah" he replies, "blood, that girls fourteen"

    General CommentVery cool song. I like how Plan B combines a very modern situation and accent with the chorus from an old song. (The chorus has lyrics from 'Young Girl' by Gary Puckett, released in 1968).
    The meaning is simple, the music is perfect and the combination of London street talk with such an old chorus combine to make this one of the best songs from Plan B's album IMO. :)

    General CommentI should have seen the ending of that song because he hints it in the chorus

    "Young girl get out of my mind,
    My love for you is way out of line,"

    being she a young girl and it wrong so she has to get out of his mind cos it wrong and out of line to love her cos she 14.

    I'm not usually into rap bu this song is good!

    General CommentWhen this song came out i was 14 but now Im 15 and my boyfriend is 20, and we fell in love acidently. Were together but secretly because if any of his friends found out that would be it. He said this song is a bit like me and him.
