Y'all looka here...

I said to my self late one night
My line was gettin' rusty
So I thought I'd try Game Number Nine
Cause' it had always been my trusty...You see

Game Number Nine was the one where I'd smile
And said some real clever things
Like..."Where you been girl all of my life,
Hey! You ought to hear me sing"

Now Game Number Nine had never failed me
It was tried tested and true
And Game Number Nine was in action
As I worked my game on you...Like this...

Now girl I don't mean no harm, but you know
You seemed kind of dumb at first
And I thought a Nine just might be to strong
You giggled and smiled and you didn't talk too much
But I knew that wasn't gon' last too long

You started asking me about my employment
And did I have any traveling plans
And where did I spend most of my nights
Cause' you were lookin' for a full time man

And there was so many things in life that you'd always wanted to do
And of course a man with my intelligence it seemed to fit right nice with you

Now girl, remember...
Before to long you started askin' me about a pretty little ring you saw
And I found myself downtown one day walking towards the jewelry store
I said to the man "Hey!...I just want to look, cause' I ain't ready to buy"
And uh, just then you walked up behind me and you said
"Can I please try it on for size?"

Now it seemed like only yesterday
That I worked Number Nine so sweet
But it didn't turn out the way I planned it
As I went down in defeat

Oh I was scared...Oh, Oh

Looka here...
Now Nine had always been my best shot
All my partners said it was tough
They all knew about my Magic Nine
But it was hard to copy my stuff

Now maybe you can tell me honey
Uh, just where Number Nine was weak
Come on baby tell me, uh, before we go to sleep
Now darling, I ain't lost a Game of Nine
Since the year can remember when
As I turned out the light you whispered to me...
"I used a Number Ten"

Yea you did, you know you did
Ah huh, oh yea...
