(L-B-Dub)
(Y'all know what this is)

Only thing that keeps me up (ha), when I'm feelin' down
I don't know about you, but I gotta keep mines around
'Cause I done looked, I done searched and it's hard to find
Another shorty like mine (uh-huh), baby, yes, I'm
Addicted to how we kick it, everythin' you say to me
(This is goin' out to all the shorties around the world)
Never knew it could be so wicked, hopin' that you stay wit' me
Search around the world but you will never find (uh)
Another shorty like mine (c'mon), shorty like mine

I tell my niggas that, uh
You got a girl but she ain't nothin' like mine (uh)
Cute face nice size like mine
Stay kitted, hood wit' it like mine (ha)
Mean walk, talk the talk, let me tell you some more (woo)

I knew when I ran into this one
She would be the redrum of my pimpin' (uh-huh)
Knew she'd be the one to make me stop
Carin' about other girls on my jock and gettin' them (oh)
She was the one to slow me down, hold me down
I roll wit' her now, go wit' it now
I'ma grow wit' it now, I'ma go get her that's how I got her (that's how)
Don't be mad you can't get one hotter (uh-huh)
Broke the mold when they made lil' mama (uh)
I don't care what my niggas say
She been there everyday for my drama (c'mon)
Some of the homies hate 'cause they want her
Wish they the ones that's datin' my woman (oh)
Gon' get a good look 'cause she fine (uh-huh)
And I don't mind 'cause she mine (say what?)

Only thing that keeps me up (up), when I'm feelin' down (yeah)
I don't know about you, but I gotta keep mines around
'Cause I done looked, I done searched and it's hard to find
Another shorty like mine, baby, yes, I'm (ooh, and I'm so addicted)
Addicted to how we kick it, everythin' you say to me (don't be afraid to snap your fingers)
Never knew it could be so wicked, hopin' that you stay wit' me
Search around the world but you will never find
Another shorty like mine, shorty like mine (uh, uh, uh, uh)

I tell my niggas that, uh
You got a girl but she ain't nothin' like mine (nah)
Cute face nice size like mine (yeah)
Stay kitted, hood wit' it like mine (yeah)
Mean walk and talk, Chris help me tell 'em wassup

I got all this love inside of me
And all I wanna do is give it to her (break it down, break it down, break it down)
I don't care what the fellas say 'bout it (no)
'Cause I got somethin' to say 'bout it (yeah)
What I'm about to say is straight up
Real talk, no cut, I don't play bout' it
There ain't a price you can put on a girl who knows (uh-huh)
Just what to say when you need to hear it the most
And I'ma tell you somethin' else if I don't know nothin' else I know

Only thing that keeps me up, when I'm feelin' down (only thing that I need) (yeah)
I don't know about you, but I gotta keep mines around (I gotta have her, oh)
'Cause I done looked, I done searched and it's hard to find
Another shorty like mine (hey), baby, yes, I'm
Addicted to how we kick it, everythin' you say to me (oh yeah, yeah)
Never knew it could be so wicked, hopin' that you stay wit' me
Search around the world but you will never find (searchin', never find)
Another shorty like mine (ha), shorty like mine

I tell my niggas that, uh
You got a girl but she ain't nothin' like mine (uh-huh)
Cute face nice size like mine (mine)
Stay kitted, hood wit' it like mine
Mean walk, talk the talk, let me tell you some more (Bow Wow, let it go)

I wanna give her the world
And I ain't even tryna lose her (uh-huh)
I'm addicted to my girl
And the way that she twirls in that little skirt (uh-huh)
Just for me in the club, in the crib, in the streets
She reps for L-B-Dub ENT
She a nice size wit' the pretty brown bright eyes
I'm a winner wit' the right prize
I'ma give it to her to the rhythm of a hi-hat
She got a beautiful mind, you can't buy that (uh-uh)
And the sight of her behind when she walk on by
Make a nigga wanna try that (yeah)
She got the prettiest smile and she gangsta (uh-huh)
Keep me from runnin' wild and I thank her
And we can talk about anythin', she got good conversation
My homie, lover, friend and plus she patient (oh)

Only thing that keeps me up (up), when I'm feelin' down
I don't know about you, but I gotta keep mines around
'Cause I done looked, I done searched and it's hard to find
Another shorty like mine (like mine), baby, yes, I'm
Addicted to how we kick it, everythin' you say to me
Never knew it could be so wicked, hopin' that you stay wit' me (you wicked girl and playboy)
Search around the world but you will never find
Another shorty like mine, shorty like mine

I tell my niggas that, uh
You got a girl but she ain't nothin' like mine
Cute face nice size like mine (oh, oh)
Stay kitted, hood wit' it like mine (oh, oh)
Mean walk, talk the talk, Chris help me tell 'em wassup

Only thing that keeps me up, when I'm feelin' down
I don't know about you (uh-huh), but I gotta keep mines around
'Cause I done looked, I done searched and it's hard to find
Another shorty like mine (that's right), baby, yes, I'm
Addicted to how we kick it, everythin' you say to me
Never knew it could be so wicked, hopin' that you stay wit' me

    General Commentit's a cute song (:

    i'm not too sure what it means...but i have the impression that the song is about all those cute girls (shorties) out there and how lucky he is to be dating one.

    "cute face, nice size"

    like...mostly guys out there are going out for the slxts && hoes(the "bad apples")...instead of falling for the "good apples" (the cute shorties out there)

    that's what i think...

    anyone else like to elaborate on it?

    General CommentI love this song. It is so catchy and the lyrics are sweet, which is rare these days.

    The theme and message of this song is that there are always going to be many girls to choose from in the world and they may be beautiful and nice. But, this guy is saying that the one he's with is the best and that she is unique. No matter what other girls are out there he doesn't need to look any further for the perfect girl because she is right because his eyes.
