Freak of Nature

Don’t it please you, daddy, don’t it feel good?
Well, I always say, that’s enough reason not to call it a freak of nature

Don’t it stand out, daddy, don’t you see it?
Well, I always say, that’s enough reason not to call it a freak of nature

Man, if you’ve got a one in a million girl,
don’t let her get away
‘Cause the next one in a million girl is a million girls away

So get up off of your ass, daddy,
and call me on the phone
‘Cause I’m sitting here waiting for you to ask me to be your one and only
This isn’t lonely, just serious

Don’t you want to, daddy, don’t you need it?
Well, I always say, that’s enough reason not to call it a freak of nature
