Lyrics

Every girl see wants me to grind for her baby
They're mesmerized by my moves for ya babe
They want me to dance slowly for them maybe
But it's a privilege just for you yeah crazy


So let me grind on you
I wanna give you everything baby, grind on you
To make you feel amazing, grind on you
You won't forget this baby, just let me show you how
Grind on you


This is your lucky day oh yeah baby
I see you while you're dreaming of me lately
I wanna make it real to you and get you wild babe
And show you how I move, I'm here right next to you


So let me grind on you
I wanna give you everything baby, grind on you
To make you feel amazing, grind on you
You won't forget this baby, just let me show you how
Grind on you


I wanna grind on you and make you feel sexy
This day is today, we're gonna keep this town awaken
I have to grind on you, just taste me really good


So let me grind on you
I wanna give you everything baby, grind on you
To make you feel amazing, grind on you
You won't forget this baby, just let me show you how
Grind on you

Honor: Are you legal to consent to sex? :P I enjoyed this. It was a little better than your first single so I applaud the small strides you're making. Maybe we can finally see some more pop boys take over.
