Figuring out Hip-Hop song lyrics

A favorite pastime of mine is to figure out Hip-Hop song lyrics.

The song I’ve been entertaining lately is Akon’s Dangerous (featuring Kardinal Offishall)

Besides getting the words, with Hip-Hop lyrics there’s the additional challenge of understanding the meaning of the lyrics.

 Dangerous

Girl, I can notice but to,

notice you, noticing me,

from across the room I can see it

and can’t stop myself from looking

and noticing you, noticing me,

Watch out, I’ve seen her type before,

That girl’s so dangerous, that girl’s so dangerous,

that girl is a bad girl,

I’ve seen her type before,

she’s so dangerous, that girl is so dangerous,

that girl is a bad girl, yeah!

Ohh, yeah, that’s her,

the big dog’s trying to get her little kitty to purr,

Ex-man’s looking at me like I’m Lucifer, ’cause he knows

I will deal with the case, Yes Sir!

If I was the last man on earth, I would only take that girl

“End Of Search”!

She give a new definition to the word “Curve”, got chicks in the strip club envying her

Body’s like weapons of mass eruptions, sitting glad on that fat obstruction,

tongue giving a new type (of) seduction,

I’m trying to give that girl some talk … Cha!

Girl, I can notice but to,

notice you, noticing me,

from across the room I can see it

and can’t stop myself from looking

and noticing you, noticing me,

Watch out, I’ve seen her type before,

That girl’s so dangerous, that girl’s so dangerous,

that girl is a bad girl,

I’ve seen her type before,

she’s so dangerous, that girl is so dangerous,

that girl is a bad girl, yeah!

Ohh, bad to the bone,

everything locked, like a two-three zone,

I wanna make my black snake moan,

talk a little bit and take that home,

She’s bad and she know the deal,

That’s what I can’t hide when she want to conceal,

I mean Meagan Good and Halle Berry put together

ain’t close to the jubee I see,

No…no… no disrespect, but this gyal’s a pon at another level,

cut the check, uh!

Tell King, Max, stop the press!…

say kid can I get a witnessss, ahhh!

Girl, I can notice but to,

notice you, noticing me,

from across the room I can see it

and can’t stop myself from looking

and noticing you, noticing me,

Watch out, I’ve seen her type before,

That girl’s so dangerous, that girl’s so dangerous,

that girl is a bad girl,

I’ve seen her type before,

she’s so dangerous, that girl is so dangerous,

that girl is a bad girl, yeah!

I see you got that fire by the way that you’re walking (walking),

from left to right, I watched her go down,

girl I just want it right now don’t wanna do no talking (talking),

Shorty’s so right, I need to slow down,

Figure 8, good body shape,

When she’s at the dance floor, I get them all irrate,

When she do her thing, man, I can’t walk straight,

that biscuit soak up everything in my plate,

Bad heels like Jessica P!,

I’m trying to give one girl sex and the city-ty-ty!

itty-bitty waistline, moves with the baseline,

one lick of punch! I’m fine, Cha!

Girl, I can notice but to,

notice you, noticing me,

from across the room I can see it

and can’t stop myself from looking

and noticing you, noticing me,

Watch out, I’ve seen her type before,

That girl’s so dangerous, that girl’s so dangerous,

that girl is a bad girl,

I’ve seen her type before,

she’s so dangerous, that girl is so dangerous,

that girl is a bad girl, yeah!

BTW, the girl in the video is Chanta Patton:
