So what do you want to do, I'm here, baby
I'm ready baby, I'm waiting on you
Believe me, I am patiently waiting on you

Girl, there's something wrong with me
Every time I'm alone with you
You keep talking about you loving me
Hey babe, your foreplay just blows my mind
So why don't we stop all the talking girl
Why don't we stop wasting time?

I've had my share of lovers
Some say I'm damn good
And if you think you can turn me out
Baby I wish that you would

'Cause you keep telling me this and telling me that
You say once I'm with you, I'll never go back
You say there's a lesson that you want to teach
Well here I am baby, practice what you preach

[Girl:]
I'm telling you this and telling you that
Cause once I've been with you
You'll never go back
There is a lesson that I'm gonna teach'

Here I am baby practice what you preach!

Girl it's just you and me, so many things
I could do to you and so many ways I can please
Hey, hey, hey it's your move girl
Why don't you start turning down the lights
And show me just what you can do?

Hey Baby
I've had my share of lovers
Some of them were damn good
But if you think you can turn me out
Girl I just wish that you would
(Cause you keep, awe you just keep, naw you just keep)

'Cause you keep telling me this and telling me that
You say once I'm with you, I'll never go back
You say there's a lesson that you want to teach
Well here I am baby, practice what you preach

[Girl:]
I'm saying this because it's a fact
That once I've been with you
You'll never go back
There is a lesson that I'm gonna teach

Wellhere, I am baby, practice what you preach

Ladies, baby, baby, baby
We're wasting time, precious time
All this talk about what you're gonna do
And how you're gonna do it to me
Come on, practice what you preach

Well, I've had my share of lovers
Some of them were damn good
But if you think you can turn me out
Girl I just wish that you would

'Cause you keep telling me this and telling me that
You say once I'm with you, I'll never go back
You say there's a lesson that you want to teach
Well here I am baby, practice what you preach

[Girl:]
I'm saying this
Because it's a fact
Once I'm with you, you'll never go back
There is a lesson I'm gonna teach

Girl, I'm still waiting, practice what you preach

[Girl:]
I'm saying this
Because it's a fact
Once I'm with you, you'll never go back
There is a lesson I'm gonna teach

Here I am, practice on me
