Keep It Down Lyrics

by Kelis

Hey whatcha know
Outside of the Beasties Boys show
Saw that kid that tried to get with me
He said by the way where ya been
Are you still with that boyfriend
I said no way and he would grin
Wanna hook up but I thought again

Meet him on the train one day
When I was wrapped in pain
He said I love you in more ways than I ever heard
And before I got his name I thought it might be okay
To use for service to take some pain away

I know guys that talk around town
Girls like me wanna keep it down
Dope boy freshen with all your clothes
Pop that girl if anything goes
Yeah Beat Boys want all the fame
Girls get hurt when you play that game
You weren't concerned with how I feel
No thank you I'd rather chill

Hey what's the deal
I'll let you know if things get ill
Can't hook up when you call the shots me
But ya got things that I'd like to see
Soft porn doesn't do it for me
I don't like sex and drugs with me
I don't like sex and drugs with me

And one day on the train
I'd never leave my man stray
I don't deserve this in more ways than I ever heard
But instead of bein' scared
His words just went straight to me head
And I got nervous and left my love away

I know guys that talk around town
Girls like me wanna keep it down
Dope boy freshen with all your clothes
Pop that girl if anything goes
Yeah Beat Boys want all the fame
Girls get hurt when you play that game
You weren't concerned in how I feel
No thank you I'd rather chill

I know guys that talk around town
Girls like me wanna keep it down
Dope boy freshen with all your clothes
Pop that girl if anything goes
Yeah Beat Boys want all the fame
Girls get hurt when you play that game
You weren't concerned in how I feel
No thank you I'd rather chill

No thank you I'd rather chill
No thank you I'd rather chill
No thank you I'd rather chill
No thank you I'd rather chill
