Dem a cry now, from di way how she a lef’ him, your shorty want me and you know it and when I’m left alone with her, sir, ending up with her any time she get up on it.”
Busta continues his showcase of lyrical dexterity by rapping, “Some think it’s inappropriate, baby I must propose it, let us f***, the juices get to spilling like a water faucet in the truck till the sweat will accumulate and drip up off it, laying back the Jimmy, let you kiss up on it.”
