Ll cool j - Around the way girl

[LL]
I like a girl wit extensions in her hair
Bamboo earrings, at least two pair
A Fendi bag and a bad attitude
That's all I need to get me in a good mood
She can walk with a switch and talk wit street slang
I love it when a woman ain't scared to do her thang
Sittin at da bus stop, suckin on a lollipop
Once she gets pumpin it's hard to make the hottie stop
She likes to dance to the rap jam
She's sweet as brown suga wit da candied yams
Honey coated complexion, usin Camay
Let's hear it for the girl, she's from around the way

Chorus:

I need an around the way girl (arooound the way girl)
That's the one for me (she's the only ooone)
I need an around the way girl

[LL]

Silky, milky, her smile is like sunshine
That's why I had dedicate at least one rhyme
To all the cuties in the neighborhood
'Cause if I didn't tell ya then another brotha would
Ya sweet like suga wit ya gangsta talk
Wanna eat ya like a cookie when I see ya walk
With ya rayon, silk, or maybe even denim
It really doesn't matter as long as you're in'em
You can break hearts and manipulate minds
Or surrender, be tender, act gentle and kind
Ya always know what to say and do
Cold flip when ya think ya man is playin you
Not cheap or petty, get ready for lovin
Ya real independent so ya parents be buggin
But if ya eva need a place ta stay
Come around my way


Chorus

[LL]

Perm in ya hair or even a curly weave
With ya New Edition Bobby Brown button on ya sleave
I tell ya "come here" ya say meet me half way
'Cause brothas been poppin dat yang all day
Around the way you're like a neighborhood jewel
All the homeboys sweat ya so ya crazy cool
Wear ya gold in the summer wit ya biker shorts
While ya watchin all the brothas on the basketball court
Goin to the movies wit ya homegirl's crew
While the men in business suits be hawkin you
Baby hair pumpin
Lip gloss is shinin
I think ya in the mood for winin and dinin
So we can go out and eat somewhere
We got a lotta private jokes ta share
Lisa, Angela, Pamela, Renee
I love you ***kiss***
Ya from around the way

Chorus
(REPEAT 2X)
