Mari, Teairra - Act Right Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
Do you,
Do you have any idea what you do, do
So on point you make a liar
Tell the truth, truth
And on the low the hood is buzzin over you
But baby I got ya
I'm talking square biz, (biz)
I'm too cool to be glowin like this (this)
After only a movie and a kiss

[Hook:]
Baby you're the one (Yeah)
Its all much too much (Yeah)
But I can't get enough
I promise to stay in pocket

[Chorus:]
Oh my, you got the thang to make a girl wanna act right
If I put my money on you every time
I know I'd get right
Checkin my call log
To see if I missed your call
While I was in the shower (Boy you got that)
Boy you got that act right
The way you love me
I swear that its a life changer
If I was a dude, homie you would get all my paper
Don't know what to do with you
Od-ing over you
But I think I like it (Oh)
Boy you've got that

[Verse 2:]
Oh, oh, look at me
I'm out of control ('trol)
Cell phone is dead so
I'm going to the corner store, store
To check my voice mail on the pay phone
Hope you left a message
Baby you're out cold, cold
Wanna say you're the shi-
But boy you're much more, more
What the streets call the reason

[Hook:]
Baby you're the one (yeah)
Its all much too much (yeah)
But I cant get enough
I promise to stay in pocket

[Chorus:]
Oh my, you got the thang to make a girl wanna act right (You got it)
If i put my money on you every time (Boy I know I would)
I know I'd get that
Checkin my call log (I'm checkin)
To see if I missed your call
While I was in the shower (Oh)
Boy you got that act right
The way you love me
I swear that its a life changer (It'd change a life, yeah)
If I was a dude, homie you would get all my paper (Taking all my paper)
Don't know what to do with you
Od-ing over you
But I think I like it (Yes I am baby)
Boy you've got that

[Bridge:]
Ohh
Never thought a hood chick (Never thought I could)
Could feel like I do (Feel this way, oh yeah)
Writing to the sky boy about you
In the daytime with a flashlight looking for you
oh baby, baby (oh baby baby baby baby)
Ohh
never thought a hood chick
Could feel like I do (I put that on everything that I own)
Writing to the sky boy about you
In the daytime with a flashlight looking for you (Oh baby you've got me looking for you)

[Chorus:]
Oh my, you got the thang to make a girl wanna act right (Oh my, you've got it)
If I put my money on you every time (If I put my money down)
I know I'd get right
Checkin my call log (Did I miss it)
To see if I missed your call
While I was in the shower (The other room and I didn't hear it)
Boy you got that act right
The way you love me
I swear that its a life changer (I swear, I swear)
If I was a dude, homie you would get all my paper (Yes you would)
Don't know what to do with you
Od-ing over you
But I think I like it
Boy you've got that

Oh my, you got the thang to make a girl wanna act right
If I put my money on you every time
I know I'd get right
Checkin my call log
To see if I missed your call
While I was in the shower
Boy you got that act right
The way you love me
I swear that its a life changer
If I was a dude, homie you would get all my paper
Don't know what to do with you
Od-ing over you
But I think I like it
Boy you've got that

  81. Bella

    girl mee too! Love tis song

  82. Latazia Lane

    LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! i used 2 listen to this everyday!

  83. Punya

    You're right, but why did Roc-A.Fella put 5 "explicit" songs on her first album?!
    That was a stupid decision!!!

  84. Joseph McKinney

    I love Rihanna, but her first album had nothing on Teairra Mari's. I also think that was a bad move on Roc-A-Fella's part to get rid of such an incredible talent, but her album sales were not up to their standards so the had to make a business move and let her go. She still gonna do her thing regardless so all in all, bad move on Roc-A-Fella's part.

  85. Lucia139

    i luv the guitar!!

  86. Sassy Besos

    lmao0'//
    ha'that was
    funny ha'ha ha

  89. Devoted2Mariah

    Devoted2Mariah

  91. Bianca Lovely

    She's gorgeous and I loved her 1st album. Hope she comes back and does her thang soon

  92. Tay Sonic

    this was that shit

  93. chinab84

    I miss her!!!!

  94. ReeseBaby06

    I did too. I remember they both came out around the same time so everyone compared them. I really thawt Teairra was gonna stay around. I didn't even really like rihanna back then.

  95. ReeseBaby06

    this used to be my song in highschool!

  96. Nicole Nunya

    also, I really thought she was going to do better than Rihanna, which she should've b/c she can sing and dance better than Rihanna

  97. Nicole Nunya
