lyrics

Written by Che Adams and Chris Henri

Chorus
Can I have this dance?
May I have this kiss?
Can I take your hand?
Can you grant my wish?
Can I have this night?
Can I have this dream?
Can I have this life?
‘Cause you you got all of me
Can I have this dance?..

Verse
My mans hit me with a plan

He got the move and wheels, I got the liq and grams

Fitting like it shoot to kill, the shirt, kicks and pants

So when the nights ended we dipping with women, stamped

But you know I won’t be licking that just isn’t in the plans

Not for me, but she go, cause she know I’m in a band

New Retro, hotter than a nigga with a tan
Now my egos stroked like Beal: Flick his wrist and hand

The hour glass flipped, dropping liquor with the sand

Think I’m traveling with pets got some bishes in the bag

Already, no “tens”, just some “sixes” with an ass

Since the night still young, resort to hitting them is last

My eyes caught a dime resemble women in my past

So I know it ain’t a difference, I just sip what’s in my glass

Make small talk, like my words a midget it’s a wrap

Youngin hopping in the whip and I ain’t even get a dance


Chorus
Can I have this dance?
May I have this kiss?
Can I take your hand?
Can you grant my wish?
Can I have this night?
Can I have this dream?
Can I have this life?
‘Cause you you got all of me
Can I have this dance?..

Bridge
We’re just a two step away
From a good thing
We’re just a few steps away
From a sure thing
Girl I see you over there moving your thing
Come on swing it over here, move it my way
