I want a man to bring home to my momma
Got his game tight and there ain't no drama
No calls in the night from the third baby momma
When the check comes no he ain't forgot that wallet
Rich man. poor man, hustler, whatever
Tough guy's tough but he's far from clever
You don't gotta be the butler, just have manners
Better put them on display or it ain't gonna happen

I'm tellin' you I gotta have a gentleman
Open up the doors and he holds my hand
I could have a thug but it ain't no match
Because a thug can't do what a gentleman can

Don't need your money
(Don't need that)
I got mine
(Because I got that)
What I'm askin' for won't cost you a dime
(Save you money for another chick)
Can you give me what I like?
Ain't no exception when it comes to my guy

Call me by my name, don't call me babygirl
Who's a girl? Yo, I thought I was your lady
I need a man who's sophisticated

Read a magazine, but he reads me Shakespeare
Confidence mix with modesty
Is the recipe when you wanna step to me
Try to act hard and you won't get far
I need a lot more attention than you pay to your car
And I'm tellin' you it ain't about commitment
Just as long as you're handling your business
You don't gotta be a baller because I prefer a boss
And a boss knows ladies come first!

I'm tellin' you I gotta have a gentleman
Open up the doors and he holds my hand
I could have a thug but it ain't no match
Because a thug can't do what a gentleman can

Don't need your money
(Don't need that)
I got mine
(Because I got that)
What I'm askin' for won't cost you a dime
(Save your money for another chick)
Can you give me what I like?
Ain't no exception when it comes to my guy
