Mariah Carey - Cruise Control Lyrics




2008, watch it! Yeah!
Yo, Mariah Carey alongside Gong Marley
Huh, natty, check it, pepper!
(Y'all know what this is)

Can't get him outta my mind
Can't explain it but it's somethin' 'bout him
Makin me hot like a motor revvin' over and over
It don't stop, he cruised beside me now I'm flyin', driving

Through yellow lights
I'm ignorin' every sign of caution that they provide
Driver's Education 101 slipped out of my mind
I need me a caddy with some cruise control, no, no, no

I've been told so many sagas
He brings the drama, six baby mamas
But uh oh, I can't resist him
Just want to kiss him, I need cruise control

Might need to go slow, I don't know
Why I ease up on the brake every time I see his face
I'm outta control, I-I don't know how to stay up in my lane
Every day and night he's cruisin' through my brain

Wherever I go he be cruisin'
Turn to the right, ooh he's so smooth with it
Deep down inside, don't want to lose him
He already know I'm willin' to go, gotta get on cruise control

C-R-U-I-S-E control
C-R-U-I-S-E control
C-R-U-I-S-E control
C-R-U-I-S-E control

Can't nobody, can't nobody tell me nothin'
When he comes into view
Cause he's the flyest ting when he be cruisin'
On me avenue

When the door open, de gals pon de block
They be hopin' to rob the clock
He said, no man, step up, step up
Bottle broken, think I'm jokin'?

I've been told so many sagas
He brings the drama, six baby mamas
But uh oh, I can't resist him
Just want to kiss him I need cruise control

Might need to go slow, I don't know
Why I ease up on the brake every time I see his face
I'm outta control, I-I don't know how to stay up in my lane
Every day and night he's cruisin' through my brain

Wherever I go he be cruisin'
Turn to the right, ooh hes so smooth with it
Deep down inside, don't want to lose him
He already know I'm willin' to go, gotta get on cruise control

You put your hand in cruise control
And you deny me if you want
And you will starve yourself of love
If you don't speed and break the law

You can't get no speeding ticket
On the highway to my heart
And it might be a rocky road
And you can exit if you want
(Why you always?)

Look at life just like a pessimist
You already like a wife up in my premises
And right ya now you cruise control it is my nemesis
Just come again and stop and start just like a genesis

Might need to go slow, I don't know
Why I ease up on the brake every time I see his face
I'm outta control, I-I don't know how to stay up in my lane
Every day and night he's cruisin' through my brain

Wherever I go he be cruisin'
Turn to the right, ooh hes so smooth with it
Deep down inside, don't want to lose him
He already know I'm willin' to go, gotta get on cruise control

  47. Matteo Garau

    My singles choices for E=MC2 era:
    1. Touch My Body
    2. Cruise Control, released in May for the summer
    3. I Stay in Love, released at the end of August, a romantic ballad for the fall
    4. Side Effects in November for the release of the Platinum edition of E=MC2 with Bonus Tracks + DVD. (A great period for album sales)
    5. A last single, early 2009, chosen by lambs: Migrate vs. Bye Bye vs. I'm That Chick

    goffalboi

    Matteo Garau excellent choices and the last single from the album should’ve been Migrate!

    MsLuvmusic81

    she release I stay in love, but she should have released migrate, cruise control and for the record

    [Verse 1]
    Can't get him outta my mind
    Can't explain it but it's somethin 'bout him makin' me high
    Like a motor revin' over and over, it don't stop
    He cruised beside me, now I'm flyin', drivin'
    Through yellow lights
    I'm ignorin' every sign of caution that they provide
    Driver's Education 101 slipped out of my mind
    I need me a caddy with some cruise control
    No, no, no

    [Pre-Chorus]
    I've been told so many sagas
    He brings the drama, six baby mamas
    But, oh-oh, I can't resist him
    Just want to kiss him
    I need cruise control

    [Chorus]
    Might need to go slow
    I don't know why I ease up on the break
    Every time I see his face
    I'm outta control, ah I don't know
    How to stay up in my lane
    Every day and night
    He's cruisin' through my brain
    Wherever I go he be cruisin'
    Turn to the right, uh, he so smooth with it
    Deep down inside don't want to lose him
    He already know I'm willin' to go
    Gotta get on cruise control

    C-R-U-I-S-E control
    C-R-U-I-S-E control
    C-R-U-I-S-E control
    C-R-U-I-S-E control

    [Verse 2]
    Can't nobody, can't nobody tell me nothin'
    When he comes in to view
    'Cause he's the flyest ting when he be cruisin' on me avenue
    Then da door open, de gals 'pon de block
    They be hopin, to rob the clock me say "No, man"
    Step up, step up bottle broken
    Think I'm jokin'

    [Pre-Chorus]
    I've been told so many sagas
    He brings the drama, six baby mamas
    But, oh-oh, I can't resist him

    [Chorus]
    Might need to go slow

  53. Vashti Silas

    Aye 2018❤️

  54. Mariah Eighteen Number Ones Carey

    I'm sorry, 6 baby mama's.

    wolfbabe

    that was too ex tra 😆

  55. Salvador Laurente Jr

    Sounds like "Mariah's supposed-to-be 20th #1 hit" ("Migrate" is the 19th, or the other way around)

    ohmygodohmygodohmygod

    Can't Let Go would be the 19th hit, followed by Shake It Off then this xD

    MsLuvmusic81

    yeah this album could have had 3 number ones

  56. dandelion Kim

    This is so greattt!! My new jam

  57. Navyforeveryoung Jean-Philippe

    Mariah Carey is to me, still so underrated.

  58. Robbie

    This could've smashed so hard after the success of Touch My Body. The second verse when she sings with a Jamaican accent is my favorite. She sounds like Shakira and I'm here for it.

  59. maya

    I'll never get tired of this... It's been nine years and I still love this ;-;

  60. riri bangah

    cant nobody cant nobody tell me nothin when he comes into view cuz he's the flyest ting 💓 I love Mariah her voice and lyrics always on point

  70. Donald D

    It's funny with all the CARS it's a CADDY! Old skl or new! Since they've got tin a bit DIF frm the old~~~~~ cool trk niCe title too

  71. Zachariah Smith

    True, MC is a queen

    Alchris Balita

    Bitch we are woke yes!

    Oiseau Montez

    Yesssss

  72. noonbob

    I love the Jamaican accent!! 1:32-1:58 My favourite part of the song.

  73. Queenjazze Mayo

    ANOTHER GOOD SONG!

  74. Fervid Amid the Dandelions

    2008 watch it lmao

  75. MariahYanez EL

    Awwww, listen to my baby Mariah doin the Jamaican accent!!! Heartthrob, my heart just skipped the beat! My heart be the drum beat! They should've skipped a lil beat on her Jamaican part! Ah!

  76. MariahYanez EL

    Hehehe! GENIUS!!!!

  77. Jordan Sturdivant

    I'm 17 and I love this song, my mom raised me right! (Btw a guy here)

    rose budd

    Jordan Sturdivant good taste in music👌

    noonbob

    She sure did ! She's awesome. Consider yourself lucky, some lack this gift of appreciation for MC

    maya

    Jordan Sturdivant 17 too but female. my mama raised me right too ;)

    MrJokersgrin1

    Same with shake it off it's that JD production that catches me everytime

  78. lexip396able

    love that Damian marley is on this track!

    Jamar Rogers

    lexip396able Jr. Gong all day

  79. gameplayer1980

    Jermaine Dupri + Mariah always works.

    R. B.

    gameplayer1980 not always. They have some misses on this album.

    MrJokersgrin1

    Hes been producing her forever

  80. Nanouk Le Zaf

    C R U I S E control ♫
    Anyone else can't see the moment when Damian sings after Mariah between 1:33 et 1:57. I get Mimi back at 1:57 but from 1:33 to 1:57 she sings deeper and deeper and it's impossible to pick their two voices out.

  81. QueenTempestt

    Im Jamaican an mi a tell u har J'can accent shotttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!

  82. The Quintessential

    This is a great song when you're on a cruise on a nice ocean or on a highway setting your car on cruise control

    The Quintessential

    @***** Great idea!

  83. Leggs

    The world slept on this album. Don't worry MC I got you. I own every cd. I'm a fan for life.

    Adrian

    ProceedWithCaution because Mariah dropped the promo after she got married. That’s why bye bye only peaked at 19, critics said bye bye should be her 19th number one. Sad that she’s being lazy.

    Krystal Ha

    Me tooo

    Krystal Ha

    @Ally Kordei 👏🏼

    MsLuvmusic81

    @Abdu Robinson yeah so strange why they released loving you Long time and bye bye....they should have released cruise control, migrate, for the record

    MsLuvmusic81

    @Adrian yeah when she married nick for some reason she dropped promotion so weird. what a waste

  84. Drew Vitale

    Mariah actually has a pretty convincing Jamaican accent. I love this song! :)

    Lyfeanmusiq

    Yes I was surprised

    Jamar Rogers

    She is truly remarkable in that booth and beyond creative

  85. Justyce McRae

    BEST SONG EVER WRITTEN BY MARIAH CAREY

    CassieJazz96

    +Justyce McRae One of the best, highly underrated.

    Medici The Kid

    One of my top faves❤❤

  86. KRZ BULL

    This song is awesome

  87. tipofmytongue1024

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  88. Queenjazze Mayo

    Love this whole CD!

    CassieJazz96

    +Queenjazze mayo Same!!

  89. coquiangel

    I think Mariah's people listen to some fans when they want the ballads and try to give them that. The only thing is,  Mariah is multi faceted in her craft and has to many boxes to fit in. So it will be hard at times to get the majority of her fans on to the train.

    Aaronix4

    coquiangel i get what youre saying and i concur !

  90. Kyle Stevens

    This should have been a single for the album Mariah would have had 19 #1 singles

    Road Rover

    But none of the follow ups to TMB were either.

    Eddy6159

    IrocEm Rockett yeah it was lmao

    IrocEm Rockett

    @Eddy6159 Nah I love Mariah. But this song is only something the lambs would appreciate. It doesn't have that massive appeal that could be a #1 or even a top 10

    Eddy6159

    IrocEm Rockett yes it does. Reggae styled songs are definitely in. Explain Work being as popular as it was.

    Anderson Luiz Dos Santos Da Cruz

    Kyle Stevens and Migrate too....

  91. NikkiPerri31

    Yes, he is always smooth wit it!

    rose budd

    NikkiPerri31 I kno that's right

  92. Pat Ligonde

    By far my favorite album. 

  93. Elix Risque

    This will always be my favorite Mariah album! There's not a song on it I don't like.

    Rommel Barrida

    Though not all of the songs can be singles nearly all are radio friendly. That shows how amazing this album is. Too bad this is soooo underrated.  Sorry but For the Record and Ill be loving you long time are weak songs for me.   Thanx for Nothing, Cruise control, and side effects are awesome tracks. 

    Eddy6159

    Rommel Barrida for the record is better than all of them & side effects is lackluster

    Lyfeanmusiq

    This is definitely my favorite 2000's album from her, no contest

    preston sims

    Elix Risque I agree

    Shauna T

    So true I love every song on this album.
