Lyfes Lyrics: Like I Do


[#ipodonrepeat Like I Do – @kellzodiac]

I’ve always loved R.Kelly’s music. I was recently asked if I was stranded on an island and had the choice of one song by an artist what would it be. I told the person a medley of all Michael Jackson’s songs. Now that I think about it, I’d change my answer to a medley of R. Kelly’s songs (I know, I couldn’t choose one song by one artist because I love music too much just to choose one. So my loophole was a medley). From his first album Born Into the 90’s, his sophomore album 12 Play and onto his most recent album Love Letter, he’s definitely been the Pied Piper (a self-proclaimed name R.Kelly gave himself and I don’t blame him. It’s genius! Hopefully he doesn’t change it like Puffy/P.Diddy/Diddy/IamSwag) of specific moments in my life.

Why is it that I dig R.Kelly so much? Aside from his ear for music and the mind blowing lyrics he pens, I enjoy the mood he sets with each of his songs. More specifically, the songs that I love the most are the ones where he comes from a point of view where he evokes feelings of lust, desire, pleasure, pain (in more ways than one) and love. He has the uncanny ability of painting an extremely vivid picture for his listeners in just 5 minutes or less. Ok… #hop… that’s not including his Trapped In The Closet series (that was a serious compilation of imagery and music that, I personally think, should’ve been a movie). I can name quite a few of his songs that I love because of the vivid picture he paints with the lyrics alone: Slow Dance, Seems Like Your Ready, Your Body’s Callin’, TP-2, Bump and Grind, Bangin’ on the Headboard, Sex in the Kitchen (see the theme that I like?). Yes, people, that’s me!

You’re probably thinking “My goodness! Why choose this to write about?”. WHY NOT? How do you think humankind came to exist (lol)? For a polynesian woman, discussing the things that I write and talk about as they relate to sex is taboo. But why do we have such big families then? Why do we have 50 million uncles, aunts, cousins and siblings? For so much sex to be happening in the polynesian culture, why are the “birds and the bees” such a taboo topic? It’s a complete ass-backwards soap box subject for me.

What is it about sex that makes me feel so comfortable writing, talking and singing about it? I like to play devil’s advocate. I love pressing peoples buttons on topics related to sex (my college homegirls and I have had some boring nights where we end up making hilarious memories with Cherry Stem Knot Tying Contests and Deep Throat Banana Demonstrations, turning the night into a FUN night from a boring one). I enjoy making people squirm just from a discussion or game. R.Kelly does that with his music. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT ABOUT HIS PENMENSHIP. People have used “Well, you’re polynesian” as a reason for why I think about sex practically 24-7-365 (lol). I don’t buy that one bit, although I can see how they would come to that conclusion because we’re passionate people. Even still, I think about sex more than most men. *shrugs* It is what it is.

R.Kelly’s song Like I Do is no different from my favorite of his other songs. What’s so special about this song? Well, aside from the fact that there’s one person imparticular of which this song reminds me (you know who you are), I love this song because R.Kelly talks about the many things he’s not good at. He’s no doctor or athlete but can do two things: make music.. IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE (lol). Although I’m a jack of all trades myself, I too, like R.Kelly, love “making” music (in more ways than one way too). And as most of you already know from my Morning Ride and Making Love in the Summer Rain poems, I enjoy writing… but I REALLY enjoy writing about sex as well. Yeah, I’ll write about the randomest of things and situations that happen in my daily life, but my more interesting blog posts (according to the wordpress polls) are the ones where I’m discussing topics related to sex and love (some of my readers are enjoying my dating experiences that I share. It’s for the birds!). haha

So as I sit at my desk typing this conclusion, the lyrics that are on are “bend it over stretch, bend it over strech… ” That’s exactly what I need to do because I’ve been songwriting and now blogging for the last 7 hours and even though I’ve been balancing and bouncing on my gymnic ball (I don’t sit on a chair when at my desk or table when I’m home), I need to get up and stretch my back and abdominal muscles otherwise I’ll be sore from sitting here this long (Sitting and balancing on a gymnic ball is good for core and back muscles).

Until next time… *bounces away on gymnic ball* (I’m not really bouncing away, but I am bouncing to the beat of R.Kelly’s song Like I Do, with occassional seated body rolls, sways, hip circles and “booty poppin'” to work all the other abdominal and lower back muscles).

XoXo

Like I Do as performed by R. Kelly

Listen shawty, can’t nobody rock your body like the R. (x2)

Oh, oh oh, oh
oh (x2)

I ain’t a doctor, can’t save a life
To say I could, I’d be
outta my mind
I ain’t no pro athlete, can’t run for miles
That’s another
thing I won’t even try

See there’s a lot of things that I can’t
do
Can’t hear mistakes, I make a lot of
But in a couple of categories, I
do
I blow the competition out of the water

[Chorus]
There’s only 2
things, in this world
That I’m the best at, it’s true
Number 1 is music,
and baby girl
Number 2, can’t nobody rock your body out
Like I do, like I
do, like I do
Can’t nobody work your body out
Like I do, like I do, like I
do

I ain’t a painter, ain’t got a brush
To paint a portrait of
love
I ain’t no pilot, can’t take you up
So you can fly through the
heavens above

See there’s a lot of things I can’t do
Can’t hear
mistakes, I make a lot of
But in a couple of categories, I do
Blow the
competition out of the water

[Chorus]
There’s only 2 things, in this
world
That
I’m the best at, it’s true
Number 1 is music, and baby girl
Number 2,
can’t nobody rock your body out
Like I do, like I do, like I do
Can’t
nobody work your body out
Like I do, like I do, like I do

I can be
your trainer, I can be your trainer
Come on in my health club
Bend it
over, stretch (ooh)
Stretch (ooh), stretch (ooh)
Baby let me you train
ya

I can be your trainer, I can be your trainer
Come on in my
health
Bend it over, stretch (ooh)
Stretch (ooh), stretch (ooh)
Baby
let me you train ya

[Chorus]
There’s only 2 things, in this
world
That I’m the best at, it’s true
Number 1 is music, andbaby
girl
Number 2, can’t nobody rock your body out
Like I do, like I do, like
I do
Can’t nobody work your body out
Like I do, like I do, like I
do

Oh, gonna make your body say
Oh, oh oh, oh oh
Baby (baby), woah
baby
Ooo, ooo, ooo,
Forget about it, listen shawty
Can’t nobody rock
your body, like the R.
