Alright cut, fade to black
Now bring it up and let me kick the facts
And I'm gonna do you like you wanna
I'm gonna do you like you wanna
I'm gonna do you like you wanna be done

Continental, continental
This is the continental, this is the main thing

I can see you dancin' for a pack of wolves
I can see them fightin' for a chance to pull
But they ain't got a shot because the way to make you hot
Is to let you do your own thing instead of tryin' to make you stop

Go on ahead my dear and dance
This is the new romance
Whatever you want to do
I'll make it happen fast

I am the Continental, I am the main thing
Whatever come 'fore and after me is yin yang
Why settle for a star when you can have the sun?
C'mon let me do you like you want to be done

Alright cut, dissolve to a purple floor
You and me are starrin' in a movie called "Amour"
Three quarters in a glass, I see you smile and ask
"If I flip 'em on my stomach will you marry my ass?"

I'd be like, ''Yeah man", 'cause I want the main thing
Whatever come 'fore and after that is yin yang
Why settle for a star when you can have the sun?
C'mon let me do you like you want to be done

C'mon let me do ya like you wanna be done
C'mon let me show you how a boy and girl
Supposed to have fun
Hand to hand, one to one
Let me do ya, do ya, do ya like ya
Like you wanna be done

Con, con, continental

I wanna kiss you, baby, yeah, I want your lips
I wanna kiss you like you know, like you know wanna be kissed
All tongue, yeah, that's right, I want all your germs
I can be heck-a-teacher if you wanna learn

'Cause I am the Continental, I am the main thing
Whatever come 'fore and after me is yin yang
Why settle for a star when you can have the sun?
C'mon let me do you like you want to be done

Con, con, continental

Baby, how you wanna, how you wanna be done?
Just say the word and we can start from number one
And go the distance, baby, until you tell me to stop
I'll lose myself inside you till you get all I got
Talk to me, baby, tell me how you wanna be done?

How you wanna be done?
Shall I go in a circle like the merry-go-round
That you and your girlfriends used to ride all up and down
Talk to me baby, tell me how you want it to be done
Shall I write the alphabet or shall I just write my name?
You tell me, you're the ruler in this telephone game

I could be a slave when it comes down to you
I'll do any and everything you want me to do
You know why? 'Cause I want you to have fun
So how you wanna be done?

Baby, how you wanna, how you wanna be done?
Just say the word and we can start from number one
And go the distance, baby, until you tell me to stop
I'll lose myself inside you till you get all I got
Talk to me baby, tell me how you wanna be done?

I want you to imagine you're making angels, angels in the snow
And kiss a hundred revolutions nice n' slow
Then I see you on the beat and do a def strip tease
No, no leave the Chanel around your neck, please, baby, please

Now do something I've never seen before
Crawl over to me on your stomach, more, baby, more
Now pull me down on top of you and grind really fast
Take both hands with all your might
And squeeze my, yeah

Roll me over till you're back on top
Then I want you to kiss me until I make you stop
That's how, that's how I wanna be done
