Lyrics

I be BBMin' you, tellin' you
All the things I'm gonna do to you
When you get home, baby
Makin' up, then yellin', ooh
Nothing I would rather do
Than flirtin', talkin' dirty
You love me, hate me

It's like it's your job to work me up
Treatin' me nice and then treatin' me rough
And I don't know why but I can't get enough
I like it, I like it

I know that I'm making you nuts
Middle of night and when I'm waking up
I don't know why but you can't get enough
You like it, you like it

Be my BBM baby
Middle of the night
Wakin' up to write
Be my BBM baby
I don't wanna fight
You're the one I like

Yeah, yeah, always on my mind
Yeah, yeah, when will you be mine?

I be BBMin' you, lettin' you
Love me in your letters, ooh
The way that you write is crazy
Your typin' is poetical
Red roses in your message, oh
I think I met my match in you
Text me, chase me

It's like it's your job to work me up
Treatin' me nice and then treatin' me rough
And I don't know why but I can't get enough
I like it, I like it

He signs XO, hugs, hey
I know it's true love cause my heart goes "yay"

Be my BBM baby
Middle of the night
Wakin' up to write
Be my BBM baby
I don't wanna fight
You're the one I like

Yeah, yeah, you always on my mind
Yeah, yeah, when will you be mine?

He signs XO, hugs, hey
I know it's true love
'Cause my heart goes "yay"
He signs XX, kiss, babe
I don't wanna fight
Boy, you got me crazed

In the middle of the night
He writes that he's outside
I left my window open, baby
You can come inside
Call me when you get here
I'll be ready, boy
'Cause I heart you
You're the one that I adore

(So won't you be) be my BBM baby?
Middle of the night
Wakin' up to write
(So won't you be) be my BBM baby?
I don't wanna fight
You're the one I like

Be my BBM baby
Middle of the night
Wakin' up to write
(Oh, won't you be) be my BBM baby?
I don't wanna fight
You're the one I like

Yeah, yeah, you're always on my mind
Yeah, yeah, when will you be mine?
Yeah, yeah, you're always on my mind
Yeah, yeah, when will you be mine?
