"Green Light" as written by Rick Nowels, James Ho, John Legend, Andre Benjamin and Finian Greenall....
Give me the green light, give me just one night
I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

I see you move, I'm checking your smile
Working your back like it's going out of style
Shake just a little bit faster
Shake just a little now girl
Dying to meet you, so let's mess around
I've got an obsession of us getting down
Come just a little bit closer
I just need permission so just

Give me the green light, give me just one night
I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now
We can go all night, give me the green light
I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

One two three green light, but if it's what it seems like
The you moving baby, lets me know it's gon' be right
I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

One two three red light, I wanna see what you dance like
But if I can be your buddy, help you study and get your head right
I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

Do I have a girlfriend, technically no.
If you'll be my girlfriend then I'll make it so
You'll be my only true lover
No competition, no others
Baby it's just the thrill of the chase
But I've got a feeling that I'm winning this race!
Baby I'm gettin' closer, I just need permission so

Give me the green light, give me just one night.
I'm ready to go right now! I'm ready to go right now
We can go all night, give me the green light
I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

One two three green light, but if it's what it seems like
The you moving baby, lets me know it's gon' be right
I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

One two three red light, I wanna see what your dance like
But if I can be your buddy, get your study and get your head right
I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

So I went hard like Medusa staring at me
I told her let's go, let's blow this lame nigga factory
She said, What type of girl do you think I are
The kind that you meet in a bar
You think you can get whatever you want cause you some kinda star
No I'm a comet, I just want you woman
Hey, If I were you then It would be me that I go home with
Three, the one and only, one thing you ain't considered
I heard you when you told your girl "ooh he can get it" admit it,
You did it let's hop a cab and split it
I'm kiddin' we both going to where you livin'
Ha, I got you gigglin' like I'm piglet
Oh that's the ticket, I hope you are more like Anita Baker than Robin Givens
No, I don't know that lady so let me quit it
I'm just style freein', freestylin' with y'all seldom do
This is what I'm telling you
To the bed I'm nailing you
Like I've been in jail for two
Years and then they let me loose

Give me the green light, give me just one night
I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now
We can go all night, give me the green light
I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now
