Lyrics[]

(Ooo) What?
(Ooo) That's dope
(Ooo) What?
(Ooo)

Love you like I never loved anyone
Keep me burnin' hot like the red, red sun
Want you like I never wanted anyone
You give it to me fast, like free and fun

Every time wit' you
It feels like I'm in summer, I don't know why
Maybe 'cause you're so cool
And keep it on the real like sugar, sugar fly

Oh, you're sweet, like sugar cane
Make me feel alive again

I'm goin' down, down, take you down to paradise
(Rock you like a real bad baby)
La-love, lick you like vanilla ice
(Lick you up and make you crazy)

Shut up, gimme what you got
You can rock my hot supersonic pop
Goin' down, down, take you down to paradise

Want you like I've never wanted anyone
Got a face like God and a bod like drawn
Kiss you like I never kissed anyone
'Cause you keep it really rough like, "Oh my God."

Every time wit' you
I can tell it's forever, I don't know how
And even if it's not
Yu know I couldn't stop
You make my heart go pow

Coming down like pouring rain
Make me feel alive again

I'm goin' down, down, take you down to paradise
(Rock you like a real bad baby)
La-love, lick you like vanilla ice
(Lick you up and make you crazy)

Sh-sh-sh-sh-shut up, gimme what you got
You can can rock my hot supersonic pop
Goin' down, down, take you down to paradise

How do you like that, baby?

(Down, down, take you down to paradise)
(Down, down, take you down to paradise)
(Down, down, take you down to paradise)

(Ooo) Dope
(Ooo) That's sick
(Ooo) Dope
That's sick
(Ooo)
(Ooo)

Shut up, gimme what you got
You can can rock my hot supersonic pop

I'm goin' down, down, take you down to paradise
(Rock you like a real bad baby)
La-love, lick you like vanilla ice
(Lick you up and make you crazy)

Sh-sh-sh-sh-shut up, gimme what you got
You can can rock my hot supersonic pop
We're goin' down, down, take you down to paradise
