"Trading Places" as written by and Mckinney/nash....
Hey, I know what you used to
We gon' do something different tonight

Oh, you
Oh
Oh, you

Now we gonna do this thing a lil' different tonight
You gon' come over and pick me up in your ride
You gon' knock and then you gon' wait
Oh you gon' take me on a date
You gonna open my door and I'ma reach over and open yours
Gon' pay for dinner take me to see a movie
And whisper in my ear I bet you really wanna do me
Girl now take me home and get up in my Benz
Pour me up a shot and force me to the bed

I'm always on the top tonight I'm on the bottom
Cause we trading places
When I cant take no more, tell me you ain't stopping
'Cause we trading places
Now put it on me baby till I say Oooo weee
And tell me to shut up before the neighbors hear me
This is how it feels when you do it like me
We're trading places
Gon' get it, get it get it, get it get it,
Gon' get it, get it get it, get it get it,
Gon' get it, get it get it, get it get it,
We trading places

I'll be waking you up to a cup of Folgers
Pancakes and eggs I owe ya breakfast in bed, oh baby
And your orange juice sitting on the coaster
Toast on the side baby strawberry and grape jelly
You finished let me get that drink,
Pull the curtain from the window
Time to get up baby let me make this bed up
Today we going shopping blowin' thirty on me
Make it sixty, spend it like you really love me
Skip dinner and we gon' rent a movie
You order Chinese food right before you do me
You coming on strong baby let me wash me hands
She said hurry up then get your ass to bed

I'm always on the top tonight I'm on the bottom
Cause we trading places
When I cant take no more, tell me you ain't stopping
'Cause we trading places
Now put it on me baby till I say Oooo weee
And tell me to shut up before the neighbors hear me
This is how it feels when you do it like me
We're trading places
Gon' get it, get it get it, get it get it,
Gon' get it, get it get it, get it get it,
Gon' get it, get it get it, get it get it,
We trading places

(Yeah) Wash the car
(Yeah) I'm gonna walk the dog
(Yeah) Take out the trash
(Yeah) With nothing but your t-shirt on
(Yeah) I'm gonna press your shirt
(Yeah) I'm gonna wrinkle mines up
(Yeah) In the kitchen girl we crazy we don't give a fuck
Where you want me?
Oh oh

You baby
Give it to me baby
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh-you baby
Baby yea
Oh-you

You, you

You get on top tonight I'm on the bottom
Cause we trading places
When I cant take no more, you say you ain't stopping
'Cause we trading places
Now we gon' do this thing a lil' different tonight
Trading places

Stay tuned for part two
You been me I been you
But we gon' switch this thing back
I'ma put it on your ass

    General CommentThis song is a joke. Usher likes to consider himself the more sensitive hip hop artist. Just more sexist bullshit, only this time mocking the opposite gender.

    General Commenti swear, usher will N E V E R get old!
    every song he comes out with is hott.

    but i think at the end, if you realllly listen to it
    it says " stay tuned for part two you've been me and i've been you
    and we gonna switch this thing back imma put it on your pussy"

    but it fades out

    XD

    General CommentUmm...yeah he did. Call me gay (as my blond gf with double ds sleeps next to me) but am I crazy to think this song is about Usher getting it in the ass from a chick either by way of her hand or a dyldo?
    I mean...tonight you're the top, I'm the bottom? You been me I been you so now Ima put it in your ass?

    General CommentI don't find this song to be about Usher getting it in the ass from a girl. Basically he's switching roles with the girl (not penetration-wise). She'll do the stuff he normally does before sex and act the way he does during sex. Instead of being on the top like he normally is (apparently) she is going to be on top and he'll be on the bottom. Hence - Trading Places. Just listen to the song while having sex and you'll be perfectly fine.
