Light it up!
Everybody light it up!
Come Rihanna, light it up!
Kardinal light it up!

The tide is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
Number one
Number one (Kardinal)

She just my part time lover, pretty likkle ting (aye)
Nothing I would ever think about giving a ring (aye)
Nothing but a pretty likkle overnight fling (aye)
Even though she wanna be the queen to my king (aye)
She ain't nothing but a work for my ginseng (aye)
Someone I would use to bust my box spring (aye)
She would a number one, not di badda-bing
Bad man nah go badda wid di wife-wife ting (aye)
She gotta know she the girl on the side
On the left of the rest, number two on my mind (aye)
There's no way she could be my girl
But she steady tryna come into my world, not uh!

The tide is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one (number one)
Number one (yeah)
Number one

Yo! She's just my trophy piece, mi hot hot gyal (aye)
Never ever would I call her Ms. Offishall (aye)
Never ever would I bring her around my fam
She be crying on the phone but she knows who I am
I'm Mr. Kardinal, voice to the people (aye)
Black Jays family our verses are lethal (aye)
I don't have time for the play play
She a good chick, yo but I'm married to the game (aye)
Married to the fame, related to the paper (aye)
Tryna get my name put up on a skyscraper
There's no way she could be my wife
But she's steady tryna come into my life, not uh!

The tide is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one (number one)
Number one
Number one (number one)

Those other girls ain't nothing like me (you dunnoe baby)
Just give me the chance and boy you will see
That I'm not the kinda girl
Who'll just get down like that (oh no)
Oh no!

On the real, I ain't gonna front
You the fox to a lot of hound dogs on the hunt
You the push to a lotta kush, rolled a blunt
You the hottest in the dance but you ain't what I want
I'm a business man
Tryna get the business (aye)
Just tryna wuk out ya physical fitness (aye)
There's no way you could get that ring
But I hear all the hotty-hotties in the place sing

The tide is high but I'm holding on (the tide is high)
I'm gonna be your number one (number one)
Number one (Kardinal)
Number one

The tide is high but I'm holding on (I'm holding on, yeah)
I'm gonna be your number one
Number one
Number one

Light it up!
Everybody light it up!
Come Rihanna, light it up!
Kardinal light it up!
