"Come Around" as written by Mathangi Arulpragasam, Timothy Clayton and Timothy Z. Mosley....
Check my coat in and I paid the dollar,
Sidekick rings, "what's up? holla!"
Text the address, I'll see you later
Baby come down
Come down, come down, come down
Run down, run down, run down
Run, make a run, make a run, make a run, make a run, make a run down
A dun da da dun da da dun da da dun da da dun dun
Beat goes on
A dun da da dun da da dun da da dun da da dun dun
Beat goes on

In a faraway land we got shit made
Ray-ban shades, warheads laid
Babies born in air raids
My girls run the everglades
Indian tribesmen gamble spades
Indian chicks, they get men laid
Milk and honey, smoke high-grade
Gold and diamond, gems and jade
Ride up on our tanks, invade
Blow up thing to save our name
Mina, rina, Tina, Sabrina
Being a super Indian babe
We black market, we black made
We hit shit out when it rains
Would you come down and catch my train?
Would you run down and play this game?

Check my coat in and I paid the dollar,
Sidekick rings, "what's up? holla!"
Text the address, I'll see you later
Baby come down
Come down, come down, come down
Run down, run down, run down
Run, make a run, make a run, make a run, make a run, make a run down
A dun da da dun da da dun da da dun da da dun dun
Beat goes on
A dun da da dun da da dun da da dun da da dun dun
Beat goes on

Baby girl
You and me, need to go to your teepee
The moon is full, and I'm shining.
Baby, I know you see me.
Put a hump or two on your back
Just like that
Oh girl you're on fire.
I don't wanna be in love with you
Imma just break you off and say goodbye
The night is young
Don't make me wait,
You just might miss your chance.
I'm gon' tell you the truth
Timbaland, I'm the motherfuckin' man.
Today's the day, girl, let me get that
Don't get mad
In fact, let me hit that
I've been overkilling them, I break backs
Come down, run down
Girl, where your place at?

Check my coat in and I paid the dollar,
Sidekick rings, "what's up? holla!"
Text the address, I'll see you later
Baby come down
Come down, come down, come down
Run down, run down, run down
Run, make a run, make a run, make a run, make a run, make a run down
A dun da da dun da da dun da da dun da da dun dun
Beat goes on
A dun da da dun da da dun da da dun da da dun dun
Beat goes on

Bounce
Don't get it twisted baby girl, baby boy 'cause Timbaland ain't dead
Don't get it twisted baby girl, baby boy 'cause Timbaland ain't dead
Don't get it twisted baby girl, baby boy 'cause Timbaland ain't dead
Bounce
'Cause Timbaland ain't dead

    General Commentseriously his rap is awful... i like to think she's letting him make fun of himself with it. i finally edited the rap out so i don't have to skip over manually every time i listen to it.

    General CommentThe only thing I don't like about this song is Timbaland. His hooks at the end r catchy but somehow I wish he'd find another way 2 address MIA besides "baby girl"

    General CommentThe beat I like.

    I also like how Timberland seemingly ignores whatever context is put before his rap to do his usual stick of half-flirtation with whatever singer he's preforming with.

    General CommentOkay. I just google searched this song and the first 20 to 30 results were "Timbaland feat. M.I.A." That annoys me.

    General CommentI think the reason Timabland ruined this is

    1. You associate him with meet-on-the-dance-floor-and-hook-up-promiscuous-girl songs. So it automatically ruins the vibe of the song.
    2. She was singing about things that are actually meaningful, and then he comes in and talks about hooking up. RUINED.
