"Slowdown"

She couldn't halfway believe her eyes
As he tried to apologize
New chick tries to come to his defense
Wifey goes to hit her, but then—

Woah, wait. Let me make the song make sense
I got a story to tell you. Listen⁠—

Newlyweds in a real good relationship
He got a job and she's [?] pregnant
Does what he can to provide a good life
She does all she can tryin' to be a good wife

She be at the crib, cook, clean, and keepin' house
While he be at the job, steady runnin' at the [?]
Til this new chick, real cute chick, always down for whatever ready to do chick
And he'd been keepin' her at bay 'til today

Next thing you know she got her hands on his thighs
Lickin' her lips, looking deep into his eyes and said
"Hey boy, I know you want me
And I hope you don't think Imma let you go that easy, no"

[Chorus]
Kinda funny how life takes its twists and turns
It can be hot or cold, it can freeze or burn
Slow down, things might be cool as ice
You never know, one bad thing could change your life

Now early in the day, his wife had called to say
"Hey, let's do something nice tonight"
He said, "Yeah, baby that's cool, soon as I get through, but ey you still gonna call me right?"

Now right about that time, like maybe 6:49
New chick saw that he was 'bout to roll out
And just 'cause how she get down
If she don't do something now
She realized that she gon' lose him, no doubt

So she takes matters in her own hands
And grips him up, puts her tongue in his mouth
Push him against the wall, started workin' down south

Then the phone rings and he wish he could answer
But he couldn't get himself to pull his pants up, no

[Chorus]
Kinda funny how life takes its twists and turns
It can be hot or cold, it can freeze or burn
Slow down, things might be cool as ice
You never know, one bad thing could change your life

Yeah, listen

At this point, she's been outside in the car just waiting
Looking at her watch, anticipating
She starts to look for him so they can be out for the night

But when she finds him
She couldn't halfway believe her eyes
As he tried to apologize
New chick tries to come to his defense
Wifey goes to hit her, but then

She screams, "Oh my God! My water just broke!"
So he tells new chick to hurry, look around for some towels or something
She says, "No! See, I don't want this triflin' ho nowhere close to my baby"
He said, "Woman, you talking crazy, girl, can't you see you need to be up in emergency to deliver this child, so stop acting wild!"

He made the call, now the ambulance is on the way
Got her on the stretcher, put her in the back
Her heart is beating fast and she's trying to relax
So he's looking at her
She's looking at him
Thinking to herself, "What did I do to deserve this?!"

[Chorus]
Kinda funny how life takes its twists and turns
It can be hot or cold, it can freeze or burn
Slow down, things might be cool as ice
You never know, one bad thing could change your life

Kinda funny how life takes its twists and turns
It can be hot or cold, it can freeze or burn
Slow down, things might be cool as ice
You never know, one bad thing could change your life

One bad thing could change your life
Slow down
One bad thing could change your life, yeah
