On The Down Low
Lyrics Brian McKnight

BJ gonna tell a secret
Mark, set, go....

Maxine was 5'9", had a man she didn't mind
Walked up to me nice and slow
What she wanted I did not know
Gave me her pager number and said call her anytime
Then she whispered in my ear, she said

[Chorus:] x2
My body wants you so
For what I miss at home
Nobody has to know
Keep it on the down low

She says that he
Doesn't take her anywhere
Used to say sweet things
Acts like he doesn't even care
Deprived of all the things
She misses, wants, wishes and needs
Got hotter than a hundred and three
She turned and said to me

[Chorus] x4

I wouldn't treat you that way if you were my lady
I couldn't share you, you'd be mine and mine alone oh no
If he continues wasting your time girl he's crazy
I'll take her
Try to hang on Maxine

Maxine looked into my eyes
Wanting me to be the other guy
And tonight she needed someone to hold
Lonely nights can get oh so cold
He thinks that she's content
'Cause he bought her car and pays her rent
But she's not ready to leave
She turned and said to me

[Chorus] out
