    Intro/Chorus: repeat 2X

    Girl you know that you need
    to stop givin' me the silent.. treatment baby
    Can't you see what you mean to me?
    I wanna love you constantly, but you keep neglecting me
    And treating me silently

    Verse One: BlackThought

    Yo, I had a Queen named Amina, height 5'7"
    Caramel-complected, body like heaven
    Met her through the sister of my man Big Vince
    Like some shit from out the flicks we been in love ever since
    She called me her chocolate brotha, I call her my sugar sista
    Knew Shorty could work it since before I ever kissed her
    I never dissed her, painted my picture to hit
    But because sex she wasn't with, she started flippin an' shit
    Like, "Listen man, I'm Queen Amina, Amina's not no freak and
    that game is weak and keep tryin to hit I could quit speakin
    Tariq in fact, you bein BlackThought don't get ya closer
    I dig ya but won't bone ya because I'm so-called supposed ta
    Most o' them would, but that couldn't be me, that's not my flava
    Go home and think about that, maybe later on I'll page ya..."
    I contemplated, and then concluded she was bluffin
    Steady pursuin screwin, gettin nothin but the silent treatment

    Chorus (+ "Silently bay-bee" at end)

    Verse Two: BlackThought

    Crazy frustration, about my lovin situation
    When patience was a virtue, but I wasn't used to waitin
    I want some Marvin Gaye healin, feelin is real inside
    I slip and slide, my ride'll keep you occupied, I'd..
    love to get wit it like that, but my baby's kitty cat's capped
    and locked, Love Boat is docked at the shore
    And what for? Later for groupies on tour
    Why won't my sugar call me no more?
    I mean, my Queen gets upset, rejectin and sexually neglect
    Then sayin I'm more sewer than Das EFX, and closed-minded
    It's like I'm blinded by the skinnin
    I'm into women; because of that, this one's into communication
    Temptation played the vandal, freakin my brain, my mind
    Rippin the handle on physically scandalous acts
    Yo! She knew what I wanted, but she fronted
    ... bust it


    Verse Three: BlackThought

    Well umm
    Movin right along with the song, plus the strong
    feelings on my mind, desire to intertwine
    Combine and blend, baby bust a message that I send
    Ain't no need to pretend, cause shit is real til the end
    I provide a place to hide from crime, hard times
    and livin trife, while I open ya mind, you're in my life
    like love, it ain't no way no one can rise above what's real
    That's why I'm feelin like you're makin me bugged
    I puff an El on fifty deuce while I walk in the rain
    Heart feelin killa pain while I hop the train
    Dial her number to the rest, and ain't no messages left
    Regardless, my chest thumps from stress, yo it's a mess
    I don't know what I got to do to make you understand
    I'm for real and that's no question, no frontin or no guessin
    Undressin, carressin, in the span, that I contain in my hand
    could touch and make you say that I'm such a man
    and call my name, so let me set your body aflame
    I'll never treat you like a dame or run game
    Now who's to blame?
    I know you're not a hoe for niggaz with a lot of dough
    But I just wanted you to know

    Chorus (+ "silently" at end)

    Chorus 1/2 (+ "silently, si-lent-ly" at end)

    *whistling of music fades away*
