Say baby, say baby, say baby

 

[First verse: Anderson .Paak]

What you doin’? (What you doin’?)

Where you at? (Where you at?)

Oh, you got plans? (You got plans)

Don’t say that (Shut your trap)

I’m sippin’ wine (Sip, sip) in a robe (Drip, drip)

I look too good (Look too good)

To be alone (Woo, woo)

My house clean (House clean), my pool warm (Pool warm)

Just shaved, smooth like a newborn

We should be dancin’, romancin’

In the east wing and the west wing

Of this mansion, what’s happenin’?

 

[Pre-Chorus: Bruno Mars]

I ain’t playin’ no games

Every word that I say is coming straight from the heart

So if you tryna lay in these arms

 

[Chorus: Bruno Mars]

I’ma leave the door open

(I’ma leave the door open)

I’ma leave the door open, girl

(I’ma leave the door open, hopin’)

That you feel the way I feel

And you want me like I want you tonight, baby

Tell me that you’re comin’ through

 

[Second verse: Anderson .Paak]

Ooh, you’re so sweet (So sweet), so tight (So tight)

I won’t bite (Ah-ah), unless you like (Unless you like)

If you smoke (What you smoke?), I got the haze (Purple haze)

And if you’re hungry, girl, I got filets (Woo)

Ooh, baby, don’t keep me waitin’

There’s so much love we could be making (Shamone!)

I’m talking kissing, cuddling

Rose petals in the bathtub

Girl, let’s jump in, it’s bubblin’

 

[Pre-Chorus: Bruno Mars]

I ain’t playin’ no games

Every word that I say is coming straight from the heart

So if you tryna lay in these arms (If you tryna lay in)

 

[Chorus: Bruno Mars]

I’ma leave the door open

(I’ma leave the door open)

I’ma leave the door open, girl

(I’ma leave the door open, hopin’)

That you feel the way I feel

And you want me like I want you tonight, baby

Tell me that you’re comin’ through (Come on, girl)

 

[Bridge: Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak]

La-la-la-la-la-la-la (I need you, baby)

La-la-la-la-la-la-la (I gotta see you, baby)

La-la-la-la-la-la-la (Girl, I’m tryna give you this, ah)

[Chorus: Bruno Mars]

Hey, hey, I’ma leave my door open, baby

(I’ma leave the door open)

I’ma leave, I’ma leave my door open, girl

(I’ma leave the door open, hopin’)

And I’m hopin’, hopin’

That you feel the way I feel

And you want me like I want you tonight, baby

Tell me that you’re comin’ through (Woo!)

Girl, I’m here just waiting for you (Oh!)

Come on over, I’ll adore you (I gotta know!)

La-la-la-la-la-la-la (I’m waiting, waiting, waiting)

Tell me that you’re coming through (For you)

Girl, I’m here just waiting for you
