lyrics

girl you are cute, like real cute
like, so cute i'm sitting here trying to make
conversation and i keep coming back
to the fact that your backside look like it
got detached from your spine
and got a mind of it's own
and started growing
all wild disproportionate and what not
cute face too, looking cute
to your shoe lace, boo
you look like Zoe Saldana
or like Salma Hayek in that 30 Rock episode
in that dress, you know?
so fit that i bet you eat your vegetables
and you're very skeptical
of men who try to get with you
it has less to do with beauty itself
i'm more attracted to the way that you carry yourself
acting like you don't know how cute you are
waiting for me to tell you how cute you are

well i would jump out the window, put a ring on it
anything i gotta do for me to say i'm on it
i would jump out the window, put a ring on it
tell me what i gotta do for you to stay, woman
well i would jump out the window, put a ring on it
anything i gotta do for you to stay, woman
i would jump out the window, put a ring on it
tell me what i gotta do

i would ask you to live with me before i'm ready
and sidetrack my goals for yours
get impatient, take a break from you, miss you more
and beg you to come back
and jump back into the same old routines
as you keep criticizing how i do things
tune you out when you nag, tune in when i bag
turn you out like a light and turn in for the night
lose my ambition and lose my trust
and ask too many questions about where you was
even though i know damn well that you fighting like me
to put things back how they used to be
and when it reaches that point we both realize
the relationship we made has turned to this charade
we'll pick a nice day, cop a fat sack of haze
bone each other crazy, and think of better days
put you in a cab and send you on your way
for all the bad times that the good outweigh
for when i didn't back down even though i could
i didn't trust you even though i should

and i would jump out the window, put a ring on it
anything i gotta do for you to stay, woman
i would jump out the window, put a ring on it
anything i gotta do

i would jump out the window, put a ring on it
anything i gotta do for you to stay, woman
i would jump out the window, put a ring on it
tell me what i gotta do
