You don't have to prove
Your manhood to me constantly
I know you're the man can't you see
I love you Righteously

Why you want to dis me
After the way you been kissin' me
After those pretty things you say
And the love we made today

When you run your hand
All up and run it back down my leg
Get excited and bite my neck
Get me all worked up like that

Think this through
I laid it down for you everytime
Respect me I give you what's mine
You're entirely way too fine

Arms around my waist
You get a taste of how good this can be
Be the man you ought to tenderly
Stand up for me

Flirt with me don't keep hurtin' me
Don't cause me pain
Be my lover don't play no game
Just play me John Coltraine

    General CommentI was hypnotized by this song so the first couple times through I didn't even listen to the lyrics, but I can completely relate. Some people can be so two faced, love you one moment, hate you the next behind your back. And that's not really love...
