Just so you know
I came really close
I came really close to not putting on my big headphones tonight
But I couldn't do it
And I could not bring myself to shave
If I'm gonna face the world and be brave
I'm gonna need body armour
But I'm out of my comfort zone
And this is the best shirt that I own
And I polished my shoes all on my own
Just so you know

That it's not commonplace
For me to make bootycalls
But talking to you here in this place
Well I guess that's what this is
It's 9:30pm and you're right where you said you'd be
In the queue for Ritzy's nightclub waiting for me

And so I pretend just like we prearranged
That I've never seen your face before
And I don't know your name
But I'm making an effort, can't you see
And I'll never get why you like R'n'B
But I'll pay my five pound entrance fee and follow you in

And it's all because nightclubs
Just aren't the right clubs
For my feet I've found
I need twee clubs and ice cream tubs
On the high street of town
And I don't know what's going on
In R Kelly's mind
Cause I see an awful lot wrong with a little bump n grind

And the DJ is talking but I can't hear a single word that he says
Cause he sounds like the man at the funfair who says 'We're gonna go faster'
So I make my move with the sound of the bass line in my head
Make my way to the bar in the dark and ask if you'd like a drink
And of course, you say that you would
But only on one condition you said
'Would you please take those headphones off your head?'
And I said 'Well, ok'

But then I felt entirely nude
Until you said 'Well, thank you for at least shining your shoes'
But it was so loud and I couldn't hear you so I tried to smile
And when you asked me to dance I knew then that that was the acid test
I knew that if I just said yes, we'd have been fine
But I just couldn't do it
My body just wouldn't find the beat
And I couldn't move either of my feet and I sure as hell couldn't grind
And you said 'You see, you say you like music, but you never enjoy it'.
'You don't get up, you don't dance, you just use it to push people away'

Then you grabbed my headphones and put them on
And pressed play on your favourite song
Then you turned and you were gone and all I heard was this song
'I believe I can fly, I believe I can touch the sky'
'I think about it every night and day, spread my wings and fly away'
But I don't blame R Kelly although I'd really like to know what that R stands for
And how he'd move if he were on this dancefloor and whether he'd care
That I lost you that night in the flashing lights and the spilled pints
And the throb of the crowd and the sound of that music you like
Yeah, I lost you that night

And it was all because nightclubs
Just aren't the right clubs
For my feet I've found
I need twee clubs and ice cream tubs
On the high street of town
And I don't know what's going on
In R Kelly's mind
Cause I see an awful lot wrong with a little bump n grind
And I don't know what's going on
In R Kelly's mind
Cause I see an awful lot wrong with a little bump n grind
