"On the down low" in lyrics
I wanna take a minute or two, and give much respect due
To the man that's made a difference in my world
And although most men are ho's he flows on the down low
Cuz I never heard about him with another girl
Normally I don't roll with a married woman
And if anyone should ask you're not even my friend
I get it, we should keep it on the down low
But if I was a wise man now I would tell you to go
I'm faced within the thoughts of loving you1
I'm tripping on the things we're gonna do
We can keep it all on the down-low
Come, baby, let love flow
- 1. This is what I hear, but it's not grammatically correct. Either the line is wrong or maybe she meant to say "with" instead of "within" - that would be correct.
[Chorus 1: Sherry Pie and Jackie Cox]
I learned never to let it show
Keep it on the down-low
Just the mirror, Just the mirror
