“bonita appleb*m”

[intro: q-tip]

bonita appleb*m

[chorus:]

bonita appleb*m, you gotta put me on [x4]

[q-tip:]

[pause between every verse]
hey bonita, glad to meet ya
for the kind of stunning newness, i must have foreseen ya
hey, being with you is a top priority
ain’t no need to question the authority
chairman of the board, the chief of affections
you got mine’s to swing in your direction
hey, you’re like a hip hop song, you know?
bonita appleb*m, you gotta put me on

[chorus]

38-24-37 (uh, uh, uh!)
you and me, hun, we’re a match made in heaven
i like to kiss ya where some brothas won’t
i like to tell ya things some brothas don’t
if only you could see through your elaborate eyes
only you and me, hun, the love never dies
satisfaction, i have the right tactics
and if you need ’em, i got crazy prophylactics
so far, i hope you like rap songs
bonita appleb*m, you gotta put me on

[chorus]
