"Buttons" as written by Nicole Prascovia Scherzinger, Jamal F. Jones, Jason Lamont Perry and Sean Garrett....
I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)
I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)

Typical
Hardly the type I fall for
I like when the physical
Don't leave me asking for more
I'm a sexy mama (mama)
Who knows just how to get what I want and (want and)
What I want to do is spring this on you (on you)
Back up all of the things that I told you (told you)

You been saying all the right things all night long
But I can't seem to get you over here to help take this off
Baby, can't you see
How these clothes are fitting on me
And the heat coming from this beat?
I'm about to blow
I don't think you know

I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)
I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)

You say you're a big boy
But I can't agree
'Cause the love you said you had
Ain't been put on me
I wonder
If I'm just too much for you
Wonder
If my kiss don't make you just
Wonder
What I got next for you
What you want to do? (do)

Take a chance to recognize that this could be yours
I can see, just like most guys that your game don't please
Baby, can't you see
How these clothes are fitting on me
And the heat coming from this beat?
I'm about to blow
I don't think you know

I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)
I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)

Come on, baby, loosen up my buttons, babe
Loosen up my buttons, babe
Baby, won't you loosen up my buttons, babe?
Loosen up my buttons, babe

Come on, baby, loosen up my buttons, babe
Loosen up my buttons, babe
Baby, won't you loosen up my buttons, babe?
Loosen up my buttons, babe

I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)
I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)

I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)
I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)

    General CommentThis song = objectification, end of story.

    The woman having the 'upper hand' doesn't make it any less degrading. Women are marketed as sex objects in far too many aspects of society, and now we've got PCD thrown into the formula making everything a hundred times worse.

    MEDIA: Women are only good for sex!
    PUSSYCAT DOLLS: YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT WE ARE!

    They make me want to vomit and then go and get myself tested for sexually transmitted diseases.

    General Commentsercute4e i sooo agree with u! u're complitely right!

    and u're right about noone saying nothing about those Nelly and P-diddy and other rappers sex songs which are patetic...

    pussycat dolls are good looking, talented both vocaly and dancing , selfconfident girls..
    and every girl should try to be selfconfident !

    General CommentKinda doesn't make sense asking what RnB songs mean to some one unless your gonna twist the words and make it into something else, they can only be about one thing and that is what the lyrics say. Hmmm, this song is obviously about: She wants to get (Bleeped) good and proper. But the guy is all talk. Really cool music saves this song from obscurity. Best on album? Oh yeah. they sound like the monsters from Pitch Black (y'know Vin Diesel) when they say:
    Baby, can't you see?
    How these clothes are fitting on me
    And the heat coming from this beat.
    So funny!
    Thre are some mistakes in the lyrics, worst one:
    Hardly the type I fall for
    I'm liking the physical
    Don't leave me asking for more

    I like WHEN the physical
    Don't leave me asking for more.
