say hey



this one goes out to you 
and yours worldwide
I say
hey I be gone today
but I be back around the way
seems like everywhere I go
the more I see
the less I know
but I know one thing:
that I love you

I’ve been a lot of places 
all around the way
I’ve seen a lot joy 
and I’ve seen a lot of pain
but I don’t want to write a love song
 for the world,
I just want to write a song 
about a boy and a girl
junkies on the corner 
always calling my name
and the kids on the corner
 playing ghetto games
when I saw you getting down 
well I hoped it was you
and when I looked into your eyes 
I knew it was true


now 
I’m not a highly 
metaphysical man
but I know when the stars are aligned 
you can 
bump into person 
in the middle of the road
look into their eyes 
and you suddenly know
rocking in the dance hall 
moving with you
dancing in the night 
in the middle of June
my momma told me 
don’t lose you
‘cause the best luck I had 
was you

and I said rocking in the dance hall 
moving with you
I said hey momma hey momma 
close to you
rocking in the dance hall 
moving with you
I said hey papa hey papa 
kick off your shoes
rocking in the dance hall 
moving with you
I said hey momma 
close to you
rocking in the dance hall 
moving with you
I said hey momma hey momma 
hey momma hey momma
hey momma hey momma 
hey momma hey momma

my momma told me 
don’t lose you
cause the best look I had 
was you
and I know one thing 
that I love you
I said I be gone today 
but I’ll be back around the way
it seems like everywhere I go
the more I see the less I know
but I know 
one thing for sure
I love you
