Lyrics

My baby likes me fresh in my white kicks
I’m sweet like cherry pie and he likes this
I buy him drinks and he buys me cigarettes
He thinks that we’re a little bit like Romeo and Juliet

Throw me 'round like a hot potato
If you want the butter then say so
And it’s wrong, b-but it’s okay, though
It’s okay, though

Baby, ghetto love
Mama knows I like the bad boys
Baby, ghetto love
Just like daddy was a bad boy

Ooh, ah
Take me out tonight
Baby, save my life
Ooh
Take me out tonight
Baby, save my life

True love, true love, true love
It never dies, it never dies, it never dies
True love, true love, true love
It never dies, it never dies

My baby likes me fresh in my white kicks
He thinks it’s a little like “hair, tits, lips, hits”
It doesn’t really matter that I do my lipstick
All day long, all day long

My baby likes me fresh in my white kicks
Yeah, Bonnie and Clyde, we're just like them
He thinks a little like we're polka dot, dress up
He like my hair long

Baby, ghetto love
You know no one loves you better, ah
Baby, but all in all
You can be if you know better

Ooh, ooh
Take me out tonight
Baby, save my life
Ooh, ooh
Take me out tonight
Baby, save my life

Save my life, save my life, save my life
Come and save my life, save my life, save my life
Save my life, save my life, save my life

'Cause true love never dies
It's what I want, when I see you once I die
True love never dies, ooh, ooh

Baby, ghetto love
Mama knows I like them bad boys
Baby, ghetto love
Just like daddy was a bad boy

True love, true love, true love
It never dies, it never dies, it never dies
True love, true love, true love
It never dies, it never dies
