"Nothin' On You" as written by Bobby Ray Jr. Simmons, Peter Gene Hernandez, Philip Martin Ii Lawrence and Ari Levine....
Beautiful girls all over the world
I could be chasing but my time would be wasted
They got nothin' on you baby
Nothin' on you baby

They might say hi and I might say hey
But you shouldn't worry about what they say
'Cause they got nothin' on you baby
Nothin' on you baby

No' no' no' nothin' on you babe
No' no' nothin' on you
I know you feel where I'm coming from
Regardless of the things in my past that I've done
Most of it really was for the hell of the fun
On the carousel so around I spun (Spun)
With no directions just tryna get some (Some)
Tryna chase skirts, living in the summer sun (Sun)
An' so I lost more than I had ever won
And honestly I ended up with none

There's so much nonsense
It's on my conscience
I'm thinking baby I should get it out
And I don't wanna sound redundant
But I was wondering, if there was something that you wanna know
(That you wanna know)
But never mind that we should let it go (We should let it go)
'Cause we don't wanna be a t.v episode (T.V. episode)
And all the bad thoughts just let them go (Go, go, go)

Beautiful girls all over the world
I could be chasing but my time would be wasted
They got nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)
Nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)
They might say hi (hi) and I might say hey (Hey)
But you shouldn't worry about what they say
'Cause they got nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)
Nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)

Hands down there will never be another one
I been around and I never seen another one
Because your style I ain't really got nothin' on
And you wow when you got nothin' on?
Baby you the whole package plus you pay your taxes
And you keep it real while them other stay plastic
You're my Wonder Women call me Mr. Fantastic
Stop, now think about it

I've been to London, I've been to Paris
Even way out there in Tokyo
Back home down in Georgia to New Orleans
But you always steal the show (steal the show)
And just like that girl you got a fro (Got a fro)
Like a Nintendo 64 (64)
If you never knew well now you know (Know, know, know)

Beautiful girls all over the world (All over)
I could be chasing but my time would be wasted (Haha)
They got nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)
Nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)
They might say hi (hi) and I might say hey (Hey)
But you shouldn't worry about what they say (Why?)
'Cause they got nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)
Nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)

Everywhere I go I'm always hearing your name (Name, name)
And no matter where I'm at girl you make me wanna sing (Sing)
Whether a bus or a plane (plane) or a car or a train (Train)
No other girls in my brain and you the one to blame (Blame)

Beautiful girls all over the world (All over)
I could be chasing but my time would be wasted (Why?)
They got nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)
Nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)
They might say hi (hi) and I might say hey (Hello)
But you shouldn't worry about what they say (Why?)
'Cause they got nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)
Nothin' on you baby
(No' no' no' nothin' on you babe)
(No' no' nothin' on you)

Yeah and that's just how we do it, ha ha
And I'm a let this ride
B-O-B and Bruno Mars

    General CommentNo comments yet? This song is beautiful. Actually, I first heard B.O.B. on Cobra Starship's album, but Bruno Mars really makes this track. I hope he releases an album soon. I'm more of a soul fan than a rap fan and I must say the lyrics on this are brilliant as well.

    "you're my wonder woman call me mr. fantastic"

    "and just like that girl you got me froze/like a nintendo 64"

    I'm such a nerd and I love this.

    General CommentIt's about being in love. Sure, you know there are other girls who other people might find just as beautiful or more beautiful than your girl, but nothing compares in your mind to the girl you're in love with. Every other girl looks like a 1 when the girl you love is a 10 in your mind.

    Song Meaning
    I dont like rap,
    but This song fits mine and My fiances realationship better then anything.

    "beautiful girls all over the world
    i could be chasing but my time would be wasted
    they got nothing on you baby
    nothing on you baby
    they might say hi and i might say hey
    but you shouldn't worry about what they say
    cuz they got nothing on you baby (yeah)
    nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)"

    His girl probally rasies hell when another girl calls, texts, trys to hit on him. ect. she probally gets pissed about it... and he is trying to say, there Is no other girl like her in this world, if he tried to find another girl better then her his time would be wasited because it cant get better then her.

    "i know you feel where i'm coming from (from)
    regardless of the things in my past that i've done (done)
    most of really was for the hell of the fun (fun)
    on the carousel so around i spun (spun)
    with no directions just tryna get some (some)
    tryna chase skirts, living in the summer sun (sun)
    this is how i lost more than i had ever won (won)
    and honestly i ended up with none (none)"

    Other girls have probally been brought up all through their realationship, Shes probally always thinking he wants them and not her. Hes saying Hes had other girls, but nothing like her, He doesnt want them. He never loved them, but he loves her. But In the past he was nothing but a dog, and just trying to fuck other girls, and was nott love them, and he never found nothing, and ended up with nothing.


    "there's no much nonsense
    it's on my conscience
    i'm thinking maybe i should get it out
    and i don't wanna sound redundant
    but i was wondering if there was something that you wanna know (that you wanna know)
    but never mind that we should let it go (we should let it go)
    cuz we don't wanna be a t.v episode (t.v episode)
    and all the bad thoughts just let them go (go, go, go)"

    Girl once again brings it up. Hes thinking maybe He should get it out once again, telling her shes his number one, and he thinks about talking to his girl about his past girls, But he knows what shes going to say and what she thinks, soo He thinks they should just drop the past hoes... Because he doesnt want it to be like reality tv, were you see DRAMA left and right, and negive thoughts should be let go, becuse he has changed, and he doesnt want to nail hoes anymore, he wants someone that he could stay with.



    "beautiful girls all over the world
    i could be chasing but my time would be wasted
    they got nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)
    nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)
    they might say hi (hi) and i might say hey (hey)
    but you shouldn't worry about what they say
    cuz they got nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)
    nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)"

    chours basically saying the samething...

    "hands down there will never be another one
    i been around and i never seen another one
    look at your style they ain't really got nothing on
    and you out and you ain't got nothing on
    baby you the whole package plus you pay your taxes
    and you keep it real while them other stay plastic
    you're my wonder women call me mr. fantastic
    stop ... now think about it"

    There will NEVER be another girl like this girl.
    She gots he shit in line,
    Shes not a whore,
    shes not a gold digger
    she doesnt depend on anyone.
    She has her life together,
    And hes not fake, shes real.


    "i've been to london, i've been to paris
    even went out there to tokyo (tokyo)
    back home down in georgia to new orleans
    but you always steal the show (steal the show)
    and just like that girl you got me froze (got me froze)
    like a nintendo 64 (64)
    if you never knew well now you know (know, know, know)"

    Hes been everywhere but hes never met a girl like her.

    "beautiful girls (yeah) all over the world (all over)
    i could be chasing but my time would be wasted
    they got nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)
    nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)
    they might say hi (hi) and i might say hey (hey)
    but you shouldn't worry about what they say
    cuz they got nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not not nothing on you)
    nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)"

    Chorus

    "everywhere i go i'm always hearing your name (name, name)
    and no matter where i'm at girl you make me wanna sing (sing)
    weather a bus or a plane (plane) or a car or a train (train)
    no other girls in my brain and you the one to blame"

    He thinks about her all the time,
    shes the best, she makes him happy where ever he goes and shes always on his mind.

    "beautiful girls (yeah) all over the world (all over)
    i could be chasing but my time would be wasted
    they got nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)
    nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)
    they might say hi (hi) and i might say hey (hello)
    but you shouldn't worry about what they say
    cuz they got nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)
    nothing on you baby (not not not nothing on you babe, not nothing on you)"
