now i don't know what it is
but i've had this problem since i was a little kid
girls were drawn to me
you might be askin' yourself "How big of a problem could that be?"
check this out and peep this here y'all
bein' this F-L-Y got pitfalls
cause i got it rough
cause one girl for me ain't never been enough
and it seems that women can't handle when your paintbrush is for more than one canvas
bit i gotta keep on paintin' life
Picasso goin' till the break of dawn
now the way i play
the things i say
ain't never been a lie
cause i ain't that type of guy
and that's why i get totally appauled
when femaled say i ain't nothin' but a dog

back in High School this girl named Tracy
used to do her best to disgrace me
she tried to destroy FP
she told all her friends i was a D-O-G
but yo i swear it was a misunderstanding
but she seemed to think that i planned it
she had this friend named Evette
who wanted to double date cause she was likin' Jeff
but i showed up all alone
i told them that Jeff was sick back at home
i said i tried to call you
but we can double date
my plus y'all two
she didn't get what the joke was all about
and she smacked the taste out of my mouth
and with a huff and a puff walked off
and then Tracy said "He ain't nothin' but a dog"

damnit i ain't no dog and that's one of those names i refuse to be called
cause that label just ain't fair
yo i'm a prince, i'm supposed to have a herom
well of course i like you
but i like her and i like that other girl too
what do you mean i'm just like those other singers?
look i don't see no rings on these fingers
i ain't ready to settle down quite yet
i wanna carve my name of a knife set
i want a shoe box with hundreds of love notes
i want my phone to ring till it's broke
i want to dance in France and Italy
and girls in Egypt thinkin' (?) is me
i want to be in a mix, that's all
but i guess to you i ain't nothin' but a dog

yo baby can i rap to you for a second?
i just wanna talk to you
now i wanna know why i gotta be a dog
why D-O-G gotta refer to me?
look baby i'm 21 years old and i'm makin' a little bit of money
i'm just tryin' to see the world and have some fun
ok, yes, i do have alot of friends
well associates, i like to think of them as creative date associates, you know?
i mean Evette is my associate, Dawn is my associate, and baby i'm just tryin' to enjoy myself
but you keep calling me a dog
oh i'm a dog?
i'm a dog right?
oh, okay well um... ruff!
