Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off

Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off

Bad misses throwin' raspberry kisses on me
You lookin' for direction, girl, I feel your vision on me
Just don't let him see you sweatin', we ain't 'sposed to be involved
Knowin' when we get it off, girl I mean it all

Keepin' ya pheenin' till you're taken and tossed
And when I'm breakin' it off, there's no denyin' the fact it's strong
'Cuz you got a man who's probably playin' his part
You probably breakin' his heart, he tryin' to figure the reason you've gone

Is it 'cuz he's superficial, or is he too submissive?
Or did I come along and hit you with the futuristic?
Or is it 'cuz you really couldn't see a future with him?
All he 'bout is paper, never took the time to choose or listen

You wanna' get gripped up, flipped and thrown
And get strictly shown the way to get in the zone, of course
Dealin' with this, you won't be takin' a loss
You need to leave him alone
And roll with the one who's breakin' you off

Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off

Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off

Brother down the hall, the one you bound to call
Workaholics are really, I'm rarely around at all
What we started got serious repercussions in court
We had a chance to turn back but look now that is what

Late nights twistin' somethin,' listenin' to Neicey sing
She got the beef for you tellin' me you deeply appreciate the company Time we spend, I feel the same
It's a shame you ain't my girlfriend

'Cuz listen, you need a brotha' with that physical fix
That come through in the mix
For you with no head tricks or fraud you need a new position and
Who can get you open like eucalyptus and have ready to go for yours

Come on work with me, you won't get hurt with me
Just keep it real and you'll get broken off certainly
Dealin' with this you won't be takin' a loss
You need to leave him alone and roll with the one who's breakin' you off

Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off

Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off

Rollin' down the highway, listenin' to Sade sing
The way your 'Smooth Operator' move my way
You sittin' beside me lookin' like Friday Foster
Pam Grier structure, look at your body

Keep each other thirsty, kisses like Hershey
But lips is sealed 'cuz we don't need the controversy
I say, I'm in town, you say, you want it in the worst way
You probably told your man it was your mother's birthday

Meanwhile it's champagne, chillin' on ice
You ready for the freakiest things you've done in your life
We breakin' down like road dogs pullin' a heist
You makin' sounds like the vibe gotcha' reaching your height

Prepare for flight, this is your captain, I'm gettin' strapped in
There's no denyin' the strength that it's attraction girl
Workin' with this, you won't be takin' a loss
So stop foolin' your man and roll with the one who's breaking you off

Baby, baby, baby, don't you worry 'bout nothing
'Cuz I'm comin' to handle you no doubt
Whenever you want that thing you need I got it
And I aim to please so I'm coming over to give it to you baby

Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off

Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off
Comin' to break you off
