Hello Mr. Mosley
I'm glad you're my maker
My Loyalty lies in your hands, you're my breath taker
Your body, your kiss is in unknown demand
So take command, go Timbo

I be the same when it all goes up
I be the same when it all goes down
Not the first one, open it up
I be the last one closin' it out
Don't know if I'll give you a shot yet
Lil Mama I'm peepin' your style
Do I think you're dope enough, yup
One way of findin' it out
The way you came at me, boo
Don't care, not afraid I'm like Wild
Really want it from head to toe
Question if she gon let it out
Anyway the hour glass go
I don't worry anyhow
Why don't we see where it go
Let's figure it out

When the cats come out the vamps come out to playy yeahh
In the morning after
The dawn is here, be gone be on your wayy yeahh
In the morning after
When the cats come out the bats come out to playy yeahh
In the morning after
The dawn is here, be gone be on your wayy yeahh
In the morning after Dark

Owww, oooohhh owww

Come on SoShy

I got a little secret for ya
I never sleep when comes the night
But every time I snap my fingers
I switch back into the light
My moon belong to your sun
Your fire is burning my mind
Is it love or is it lust
Something that I just can't describe (ah)
Am I the one and only (ah)
Cause you're the only one (ah)
It felt so long and lonely (ah)
Waiting for you to come
It's lookin' bright and early
I'm willing to close my eyes
This is the unusual story
Timbo and SoShy

When the cats come out the bats come out to playy yeahh
In the morning after
The dawn is here, be gone be on your wayy yeahh
In the morning after
When the cats come out the bats come out to playy yeahh
In the morning after
The dawn is here, be gone be on your wayy yeahh
In the morning after dark

Heyy, heyy, (ay) heyy, timbo!

You talk about takin' it slow
I'm talkin' about takin' it wild
Don't wanna be too up front no
Baby you know it's my style
I'm talkin' about lightin' it up
You talkin' about dimmin' it down
Don't think about lettin' it go
But I've never seen no king that bows
Yes I'm the one and only
You know I see right through ya
I get it your magnetic
So you draw me right to ya
Maybe I give you a shot yup
Maybe you deserve the crown
Won't give you a treasure map yet
Cause you'll figure it out

When the cats come out the bats come out to playy yeahh
In the morning after
The dawn is here, be gone be on your wayy yeahh
In the morning after
When the cats come out the bats come out to playy yeahh
In the morning after
The dawn is here, be gone be on your wayy yeahh
In the morning after dark

Dark dark dark dark dark
In the morning after dark
Dark dark dark dark dark
In the morning after dark
Please don't leave me girl
In the morning after dark
Please don't leave me girl

(Please don't leave me girl)

When the cats come out the bats come out to playy
When the cats come out the bats come out to playy
Play play
The dawn is here be on your way
When the cats come out the bats come out to playy
Play play play
The dawn is here be on your way (way way way way)

    General CommentAm I the only one who *doesn't* think this is literally about vampires?
    It seems pretty obvious that it's about partying, hanging out all night, and that the vampire thing is a metaphor. I mean, look at Nelly's WHOLE part, it isn't really about vampires, but about partying. Except where she says I'll be your vampire, it's about going out, having fun, getting too drunk, and having sex.

    General CommentFirst of all,the Morning After Dark is about relationships. The whole song talks about breaking up. Timbaland explains in the first verse how he will stay the same reguardless. He indirectly states that the way he was before they got together will be the same way he will still be after the relationship is over. Morning After Dark is a metaphorical phrase symbolizing that during the night,the couple is arguing,fighting,yelling,etc,etc. Things will be better the following morning after the couple works out their problems. The vampire references help hint around to this theory. Watch vampire movies. Everything is crazy during the night,but come the following morning,everything is back to normal. The Morning After Dark is about relationships&avoiding breakups.EndOfStory.If U disagree,speak now or forever hold your piece. I rest my case.

    General CommentI think it's obvious what the song is about- Timbaland is rarely subtle. But I like to pretend it's actually about vampires. ;)
