  • As a man, there's a time, when you gotta man up. And you might even know how to say it, well, all you gotta do is play her this. Tell her "Sit down for minute, let me talk to you." Better yet, say "Baby, stand up, and let me get on one knee and explain."

    I broke hearts, and I've had girlfriends
    Varieties, and even one night stands
    I've played the field, even thought I had Miss Right one time
    But I guess it wasn't in the most High's plan

    But, this time,
    When you spoke I
    (this time)
    Recognized your voice, and
    (this time)
    Felt like deja vu
    This time (this time)
    This time
    I'm prepared for you
    (this time)
    The scrimmage is over
    (this time)
    I'ma Keep it real and true
    (this time)

    Don't want no girlfriend
    Don't want a 2 week love affair that just ends
    Don't need no married (I even been there and done that too)
    Not five, (not four), not three, (not two), just one

    I want you to be my wife
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    I want you to be my wife
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    Want you to be my wife
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    Want you to be my wife
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    I want you to be my wife, my wife

    So just say yes
    And pick out your dress
    My friends say I'm crazy but girl I wouldn't load? right now
    Now hold out
    Till we get to the hotel room
    On our honeymoon
    Never thought I'd be doin it this soon

    But this time,
    Oh, I'm not afraid of love
    (this time)
    I'm with you because
    (this time)
    I'm a grown man now
    (this time)
    Ooh I've got a winner this time
    (this time)
    I see my dreams come true
    (this time)
    I'm prepared for you
    (this time)
    This scrimmage is over
    I'ma keep it real with you

    Don't want no girlfriend
    Don't want no 2 week love affair that just ends
    Don't need no married (don't need no husband knocking on my door)
    Not five, (not four), not three, (not two), just one

    Won't you be my wife (equally I need you to be.)
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    I want you to be my wife
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    Want you to be my wife
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    Want you to be my wife
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    I want you to be my wife, my wife

    And after we say I do,
    I'ma hand dance with you
    Tell the DJ to play that jam
    DJ Wayne Williams play that jam

    And after we say I do (say yes)
    I'ma line dance with you (I'ma dance w/my number 1)
    And tell the DJ to play that jam
    Hey Kenny dope-man, play that jam?

    Want you be my wife
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    I want you to be my wife (oo, I'm gonna take you to the church house)
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    Want you to be my wife (want to meet your daddy and ask him can you be)
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    Want you to be my wife
    My wife, my wife, my wife, my wife
    I want you to be my wife, my wife (call your girlfriends, pick out your dress babe, I know you can't stand my cousin, but he's gonna be my best man)

    (say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)
