I love you and I need you
Nelly, I love you, I do
Need you

No matter what I do (woo)
All I think about is you (uh huh)
Even when I'm with my boo
Boy, you know I'm crazy over you (check it)

No matter what I do (check it, check it, check it)
All I think about is you (check it, check it, check it)
Even when I'm with my boo (check it, check it, check it)
You know I'm crazy over you (check it, check it, check it) (uh, uh, uh, uh)

I met this chick and she just moved right up the block from me and uh
She got the hots for me, the finest thing I need to see
But oh, no, no, she got a man and a son though oh
But that's okay 'cause I
Wait for my cue and just listen, play my position like a shortstop
Pick up everything mami hittin'
And in no time (no time)
I plan to make this one here mine
And that's for sure 'cause I
I never been the type to, break up a happy home but uh
There's something bout baby girl I just can't leave alone
So tell me ma what's it gonna be? She said

You don't know what you mean to me (come on)

No matter what I do (woo)
All I think about is you (uh huh)
Even when I'm with my boo
Boy, you know I'm crazy over you
No matter what I do (check it)
All I think about is you (check it, check it, check it)
Even when I'm with my boo (check it, check it, check it)
You know I'm crazy over you (check it, check it, check it) (uh, uh, uh, uh)

I see a lot and you look and I never say a word
I know how niggas start actin trippin' out here about they girls
And there's no way, Nelly gon' fight over no dame (I ain't fighting' over no dame)
As you can see, but I
I like your steez, your style, your whole demeanor
The way you come through and holla and swoop me in his two-seater
Now that's gangsta
And I got special ways to thank ya
Don't you forget it but uh
It ain't that easy for you to pack and leave him but uh
You and dirty got ties for different reasons
I respect that and right before I turn to leave, she said

You don't know what you mean to me (come on)

No matter what I do (woo)
All I think about is you (uh huh)
Even when I'm with my boo (yeah)
Boy, you know I'm crazy over you (put your hands up)
No matter what I do (put your hands up)
All I think about is you (yeah)
Even when I'm with my boo
You know I'm crazy over you

Sing it for me, K!

And I love you (word)
And I (yeah) need you (uh)
Nelly I love you (uh)
I do (come on girl)
And it's more than you'll ever know
Boy, it's for sure
You can always count on my love (uh)
Forever more, yeah, yeah

East coast, I know you shakin' right (uh huh)
Down South, I know you bouncin' right (ay hey)
West coast, I know you walkin' right, 'cause (uh, uh, uh, uh)
You don't know what you mean to me (Midwest, I see you swingin' right)

No matter what I do (yeah)
All I think about is you (uh uh)
Even when I'm with my boo
Boy, you know I'm crazy over you (uh, uh, uh, yeah)
No matter what I do (yeah)
All I think about is you (check it)

Even when I'm with my boo (check it)
You know I'm crazy over you (yeah yeah)

East coast, I know you shakin' right (what)

Down South, I see you bouncin' right (dirty, dirty)
West coast, I know you walkin' right, 'cause

    General Comment"Dilemma" cheered up America because honestly, 2002 was a depressing year. America was reeling in from 9/11, a recession made people lose their jobs.

    General Commenti had never heard of this song till my now boyfriend asked me if i wanted it to be "our" song..he played a little for me and i said "yeah that sounds cute" so that night i downloaded the song so i could hear the whole thing...and of course fell in love with it! i bought the new nelly cd a few days after it came out just coz it had me and my boy's song on it! now..me and my boy have pretty much played out the song coz we both listen to it so much..coz "all i think about is you" hehe...

    General CommentEvery song Nelly comes out w/ always reminds me of someone. I don't know why. I'll hear the song & think of that person. It's just me, I'm weird like that. But I heard this song for the first time today & it's always gonna remind me of the guy I was w/ when I heard it from now on. I know, I'm a dork!
