Lyrics[]

I had a man, he was sweet as pie
I met him as I walked right by him
He said, "Baby, you so fine that when you walk
Even the stoplights stop to talk about you."

"I saw you and I had to make you mine
'Cause you ultimately the most fine.
You know a man like me
Gotta have a woman who's killer.
She's gotta be a killer, killer, killer, baby."

Fly body, dope in the face
Fly body, dope in the face

The way you talk, well, you make me smile
And I'm lookin' down 'cause I'm kinda shy
You know you're so fine that when you talk
Even the roses get up to walk to you

You're crazy but I knew that at the time
I just could not resist your golden grill
And your stupid pick-up line

Fly body, dope in the face
Fly body, dope in the face

There's somethin' about you when you say
"C'mon, c'mon with me, babe."
And I don't know why but I know
Wherever you go, I'm gonna follow

Fly body, don't mean a thing
Fly body, don't mean a thing
Fly body, dope in the face

You're gonna be the, you're gonna be the
You're gonna be the death of me
(You are, you are)

Ooh, ah, ooh, ah
Ah, ah, ah

You so fly, you so dope, babe
You so fly, you so dope, babe
Fly like a bird
