Dat-ing: “That Thing”

A song comes to mind now when I think of dating. Probably because I listened to it yesterday and then went on a date, where a series of events happened that made me realise I am not the average girl/woman/lady-person and that there are SO many aspects and facets of me, that I hardly know what the hell is going on. Confusion. Much?

Lyrics:

—-[Intro]
Yo, remember back on the boogie when cats used to harmonize like
Yo, my men and my women
Don’t forget about the deen, Sirat al-Mustaqeem
Yo, it’s about a thing
If ya feel real good wave your hands in the air
And lick two shots in the atmosphere!

[Verse 1]
It’s been three weeks since you were looking for your friend
The one you let hit it and never called you again

‘Member when he told you he was ’bout the Benjamins?
You act like you ain’t hear him, then give him a little trim
To begin, how you think you’re really gon’ pretend
Like you wasn’t down and you called him again?

Plus, when you give it up so easy you ain’t even foolin’ him
If you did it then, then you’d probably fuck again

Talking out your neck, sayin’ you’re a Christian
A Muslim, sleeping with the jinn
Now that was the sin that did Jezebel in
Who you gon’ tell when the repercussions spin?

Showing off your ass cause you’re thinking it’s a trend
Girlfriend, let me break it down for you again
You know I only say it cause I’m truly genuine

Don’t be a hard rock when you really are a gem
Baby girl, respect is just a minimum
Niggas fucked up and you still defending ’em
Now, Lauryn is only human
Don’t think I haven’t been through the same predicament

Let it sit inside your head like a million women in Philly, Penn
It’s silly when girls sell their souls because it’s in

Look at where you be in, hair weaves like Europeans
Fake nails done by Koreans
Come again

[Hook]
Guys you know you’d better watch out
Some girls, some girls are only about
That thing, that thing, that thing
That thing, that thing, that thing

[Verse 2]
The second verse is dedicated to the men
More concerned with his rims and his Timbs than his women
Him and his men, come in the club like hooligans
Don’t care who they offend, poppin’ yang (Like you got yen!)
Let’s stop pretend, the ones that pack pistols by they waist men
Cristal by the case men, still in they mother’s basement

The pretty face men claiming that they did a bid men
Need to take care of they three or four kids
And they face a court case when the child support late

Money taking and heart breaking, now you wonder why women hate men
The sneaky, silent men
The punk, domestic violence men

Quick to shoot the semen, stop acting like boys and be men
How you gonna win when you ain’t right within? (x3)
Come again

[Bridge]
Watch out, watch out
Look out, look out

[Bridge]
Watch out, watch out
Look out, look out

[Bridge]
Watch out, watch out
Look out, look out

[Bridge]
Watch out, watch out
Look out, look out

[Hook]
Guys you know you’d better watch out
Some girls, some girls are only about
That thing, that thing, that thing
That thing, that thing, that thing —–

Now I’ve got rap rhythm in my head:

Now I aint saying that all men be criminalsThat they only want your panty round your thin ankles
But I’d say that 99.9 triple nine percent do
And you gotta learn to stand up and say ‘no thank you’

See I have a problem with wanting to please
Damn men I don’t even know for what, self-confidence?
But in the end I don’t get nothing, but dishonesty and disappointment
They will push the boundaries, you gotta speak up, girl listen!

F*@& their disappointments, you think they’re putting you before them?
Nah girl, they got no worries for you only the hole you can let them protrude within
Sounds harsh but to many it’s just like taking a walk
To many it don’t mean nothing it’s just two bodies grinding in the dark
Two bodies, two minds, separated but intertwined
Totally natural nothing wrong with getting-it-on
But since when was that ‘thing’ just so unimportant?
When did it become just a thing that you do?
With anyone you find attractive and who let you?
What happened to taking things slow,
To getting to know someone instead of just being in the throes?

You gotta learn to stand up and say ‘no thank you’
You gotta learn girl, you need to put you before them
Your kind heart will get you in trouble with men
You gotta learn to stand up girl, put YOU before them.

Peace out!

(I’m not really gansta but that was fun!)
