[Verse 1]
I ain't got no money
I ain't got no car to take you on a date
I can't even buy you flowers
But together we could be the perfect soulmates
Talk to me girl

(Oh) Baby, it's alright now, you ain't gotta flaunt for me
If we go dutch you can still touch my love, it's free
We can work without the perks just you and me
thug it out 'til we get it right

[Chorus]
Baby if you strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like you just the way you are
(I'm about to strip and I'm well equiped
Can you handle me the way I are?)
I don't need the cheese or the car keys
Boy I like you just the way you are
Let me see ya strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like, I like, I like...

[Verse 2]
I ain't got no Visa
I ain't got no Red American Express
We can't go nowhere exotic
It don't matter 'cause I'm the one that loves you best

Talk to me girl

[Bridge 2]
Oh, baby, it's alright now, you ain't gotta flaunt for me
If we go dutch, you can still touch my love, it's free
We can work without the perks just you and me
thug it out 'til we get it right

[Chorus]
Baby if you strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like you just the way you are
(I'm about to strip and I'm well equiped
Can you handle me the way I are?)
I don't need the cheese or the car keys
Boy I like you just the way you are
Let me see ya strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like you just the way you are

[Verse 3]
Baby girl, I don't got a huge ol' house I rent a room in a house
Listen baby girl, I ain't got a motorboat but I can float ya boat
So listen baby girl, once you get a dose of D.O.E. you gon' want some mo'
So listen baby girl, when I'm naked I want you there, want you there, yeah.
(oooohh ooh whoahh!)
(oooohh ooh whoahh!)
(fade)

    General CommentI can't beleive no one has commented.
    I typically don't listen to this sort of music,
    but when this song comes on the radio I
    can't help but groove.

    General CommentI always dance to this when I hear it, on da radio or in the club, but the one thing that bothers me a bit is the whole "the way I are" business... its an artistic liberty that doesn't sound very good...
    baby girl... baby girl... woot!

    General Commentthis song is really sweet .. it's pretty self explanitory, loving someone no matter if they have money or a model's body or material things -- loving them for the way they are :) although hearing this kind of guy singing it is a little pathetic..
