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)
