Lyrics:

 

On my way to see my friends

who lived a couple blocks away from me (owh)

As I walked through the subway

it must have been about quarter past three

In front of me

stood a beautiful honey with a beautiful body

She asked me for the time

I said it’d cost her her name

a six digit number & a date with me tomorrow at nine

 

Did she decline? No

Didn’t she mind? I don’t think so

Was it for real? Damn sure

What was the deal? A pretty girl aged 24

So was she keen? She couldn’t wait

Cinnamon queen? let me update

What did she say? She said she’d love to

rendezvous

She asked me what we were gonna do

said we’d start with a bottle of moet for two

 

[Chorus]

 

Monday

took her for a drink on Tuesday

we were making love by Wednesday

and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday

I met this girl on Monday

took her for a drink on Tuesday

we were making love by Wednesday

and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday

 

[Verse 2]

Nine was the time

cos I’ll be getting mine

and she was looking fine

Smooth talker

she told me

She’d love to unfold me all night long

Ooh I loved the way she kicked it

from the front to back she flipped (back she flipped it, ooh the

way she

kicked it)

And I oh oh I yeah

hope that she’d care

cos I’m a man who’ll always be there

 

Ooh yeah

I’m not a man to play around baby

Ooh yeah

cos a one night stand isn’t really fair

From the first impression girl hmm you don’t seem to be like that

Cos there’s no need to chat for there’ll be plenty for that

From the subway to my home

endless ringing of my phone

When you feeling all alone

all you gotta do

is just call me call me

 

[Chorus]

 

Monday

took her for a drink on Tuesday

we were making love by Wednesday

and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday

I met this girl on Monday

took her for a drink on Tuesday

we were making love by Wednesday

and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday

 

[Bridge]

 

(Break it down, uh break it down)

Since I met this special lady

ooh yeah

I can’t get her of my mind

She’s one of a kind

And I ain’t about to deny it

It’s a special kinda thing

with you-oh…….

 

[Chorus]

 

Monday

took her for a drink on Tuesday

we were making love by Wednesday

and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday

I met this girl on Monday

took her for a drink on Tuesday

we were making love by Wednesday

and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday
