All the guys would say she’s mighty fine (mighty fine)
But mighty fine only got you somewhere half the time

Cussed out or coming up short
Yeah, now dig this, now even though (even though)
You’d need a golden calculator to divide (to divide)
The time it took to look inside and realize
That real guys go for real down-to-Mars girls, haha, yeah

Lean a little bit closer, see

Ain’t nobody dope as me, I’m just so fresh, so clean

Don’t you think I’m so sexy? I’m just so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean
Ain’t nobody dope as me, I’m just so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean
I love when you stare at me, I’m just so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean
Sir Lucious gots gator belts and patty melts and Monte Carlos
And El Dorados, so I’m waking up out of my slumber feeling like Rollo
So follow, it’s Showtime at the Apollo minus the Kiki Shepards
What about a hoe in a leopard-print? Ah
Teddy Pendergrass, cooler than Freddie Jackson
Sipping a milkshake in a snowstorm
Left her throat warm in the dorm room at the A.U.
We blew hay too, athletes might cake you
But you must have me mistaken with them statements that you make ’cause

The Way You Move

Length: 3:54

Release: 2003

Opening Lyrics:

Ready for action, nip it in the bud
We never relaxing, OutKast is everlasting
Not clashing, not at all
But see, my nigga went to do a little acting
Now, that’s for anyone asking, give me one pass ’em
Drip-drip-drop, there goes an eargasm
Now you cumming out the side of your face
We tapping right into your memory banks—thanks!
So click it or ticket, let’s see your seat belt fastened
Trunk rattling, like two midgets in the backseat ‘rassling
Speakerboxxx vibrate the tag
Make it sound like aluminum cans in the bag
But I know y’all wanted that 808
Can you feel that B-A-S-S bass?
But I know y’all wanted that 808
Can you feel that B-A-S-S bass?
