lyrics

we be homies who find trouble when the sun goes down
we often stumble when our words hit the ground
so we find footing on limbs and lips and fountains / but we
really shouldn’t bushwack when you gonna go home to red mountain

so treat that woman right
we both know i could ride you tonight
treat that woman right
you know she does you tight
you better treat that woman right
we both know i could ride you tonight
treat that woman right
you know she does you tight, yeah

we both know we could take flight
on the wings of skin and soul and polyrhythmic insight
we been down that path know compliment each other’s stride
but we turn sacred into sacrilege when we
desecrate a lady’s love light

you keep treating me like priestess
but you don’t treat your queen like one
so while you bless me with words of sweetness
are you just thinking to get your fun
i’m sorry my behavior
cause you to be confused
yes i am a sensual creature
but thats got nothing to do with you

you do deserve affection
yes i want you to feel praise
but you and i we just got to
get out of this complex maze
i don’t think that you’re a bastard
and i know i’m not your whore
but most of all i know
she is not some foolish bore

so talk to her
find out whats been bothering her
talk to her
remember what arouses her
so talk to her
find out whats been bothering her
talk to her
remember what arouses

& treat that woman right
we both know i could ride you tonight
treat that woman right
you know she does you tight
you better treat that woman right
we both know i could ride you tonight
treat that woman right
you know she does you tight, yeah

don’t tempt me
no don’t come so close
don’t tempt me
when you do you do wrong by her me and you so just
don’t tempt me
don’t look at me like you know my soul
she does you tight
