This one goes out to you and yours worldwide 
I say hey I be gone today 
But I be back around the way 
Seems like everywhere I go 
The more I see the less I know 
But I know one thing 
That I love you 
I love you 
 
I’ve been a lot of places all around the way 
I’ve seen a lot joy and I’ve seen a lot of pain 
but I don’t want to write a love song for the world, 
I just want to write a song about a boy and a girl 
Junkies on the corner always calling my name 
And the kids on the corner playing ghetto games 
When I saw you getting down well I hoped it was you 
And when I looked into your eyes I knew it was true 
 
Now I’m not a highly metaphysical man 
But I know when the stars are aligned 
you can bump into person in the middle of the road 
look into their eyes and you suddenly know 
Rocking in the dance hall moving with you 
Dancing in the night in the middle of June 
My momma told me don’t lose you 
'cause the best luck I had was you 
 
And I said rocking in the dance hall moving with you 
I said Hey momma hey momma close to you 
Rocking in the dance hall moving with you 
I said hey trippa trippa close to you 
Rocking in the dance hall moving with you 
I said Hey Momma close to you 
Rocking in the dance hall I said 
hey momma hey momma hey momma hey momma 
 
My momma told me don’t lose you 
Cause the best luck I had was you 
And I know one thing that I love you 
I said I be gone today but I’ll be back around the way 
It seems like everywhere I go 
The more I see the less I know 
But I know one thing for sure 
I love you (3x)
