"Closet Freak" as written by and Gaelle Adisson Eric M Stamile....
Yeah.. ooh..
You so freaky..
You so freaky shorty..
Ooh you so freaky..
Shit, you so freaky shorty..
Uh uh, you so freaky..
Ooh Lord, you so freaky..
Mmm uh, you so freaky shorty..
HAH HAH!!

[Cee-Lo]
Now everybody that's grown got skeleton bones they got hidden away
Yes y'all there's a freak in us all, yet some choose not to say
You can't let those who ain't yet, make you they lil' ball of clay
Be free and express yourself, nastiness comes naturally
Listen to me now
It could be the way I wanna freak a song, tattoos, or the way I dress
Or it could be; I wanna walk my way and refusin to follow the rest
Or when people haven't been where you been
and they say you still going too far
Or when you wit ya girl and
Pull over and fuck somethin in the back of the car

[Hook]
I'm a freak!
A closet freak!
A freak!
Awwww a freak!

[Cee-Lo after each pause in hook]
I'm so excited, go on and say it
Oh I'm a freak, yes I'm a freak, and just can't fight it
I'm so excited, go on and say it
If you a freak, say you a freak, don't try to fight it

[Cee-Lo]
You got to let the music freak your mind
All the way, if yo' brain leavin don't mind
You know a boyfriend thing is hard to find
Get on the floor mama and bump and grind
Ain't nuttin wrong wit - You only gon' get
But it ain't no fun if ya freakin all the mo'nin
I'll tell you one clue - If you want you gon' do it
All you got to do is find somebody like you

[Hook]
A freak!
A closet freak!
A freak!
Awwww a freak!

[Cee-Lo after each pause in hook]
I'm so excited, go on and say it
Oh I'm a freak, yes I'm a freak, and just can't hide it
I'm so excited, go on and say it
If you a freak, say you a freak
(Wait a minute, where the God-damn horns?)

{music plays with Cee-Lo vocalizing and singing}

[Cee-Lo]
La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-laaaaah!

FREAK! - Sometimes I like freakin in the mornin
FREAK! - Sometimes I like freakin at night
FREAK! - Some people like freakin just lightly
FREAK! - Some people think freakin ain't right
FREAK! - Some people like freakin outside now
FREAK! - Some people like freakin in the club
FREAK! - Some people like freakin on the express-way
FREAK! - Some people keen doin it in public
FREAK! - Some people like freakin with the lights out
FREAK! - Some people hell just don't care
FREAK! - Some people like freakin 'bout money
FREAK! - Some people like freakin anywhere
FREAK! - You a freak?
FREAK! - Are you a freak?
FREAK! - I'm a freak
FREAK! - Big ol' freak

    General CommentThis song is NOT stupid...but I guess everyone has their own opinion. Anyway, this song is about just being yourself and not being scared of being different and being who you are.

    General Commentthis song is very simple minded and half the song is freak but u need to ignore the over use of the word freak and just listen to it cee-lo is trying to bring back the sound of 70 style funk like the p-funk all stars and that shit and that is a great thing that needed to be done!

    General Commentshoudn't "those who ain't yet" be "those who ain't shit"? This is a good song, if you ask me. I love the vibe and the ideas of being/expressing yourself . . . in all forms of the word "freak" too bad the rest of the album was only OK.

    General CommentThere are alot of incorrect things in this set of lyrics, yes, it's "Those who ain't shit", along with "though some choose not to say it", meaning that everybody is a freak, regardless of whether or not they own up to it. And for those of you thinking the song is simple minded, it's obvious how simple minded you are after being presented with the lyrics and still not picking up the blatant meaning of the song.

    Good job, morons.
