Lyrics:

Downtown
we'll drown
We're in our never splendor
Flowers, showers
Who's got the new boy gender
I'll be your baby, I'll be your score
I'll run the gun for you
an so much more
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YA
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YA
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YA
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YOU
Uptown their sound
It's like the native
you send her
Junction, funktion
The boy with pop is slender
Did he say maybe
or I'm not sure
He'll be a boy for you
but you need more
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YA
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YA
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YA
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YOU
I GET A CRAZY FEELING
THAT CHASES IN MY HEAD
IT'S NOTHING THAT YOU DO TO ME
IT'S NOTHING THAT YOU SAID
IT'S LOVE IN STEREO
AND WHEN I CANT LET GO
I SAY
I'll be your baby, I'll be your score
I'll run the gun for you
an so much more
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YA
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YA
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YA
I'LL TUMBLE 4 YOU
