Music Monday – 90s Throwback – Ain’t Too Proud to Beg by TLC

09/19/2022     Charli     Meme

Music Monday is a weekly post series started by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek.

Now I’ve never claimed to only like rock/metal music. I do like some pop/hip-hop/r&b/rap music as well. They may not be my absolute favorites, but I do enjoy them all the same. This one was a song my friends and I used to sing/rap with all the time – and yes, we knew what they were talking about. 😉

Lyrics

Yo mic check 1-2, 1-2
We in the house
Yeah come on
1992 TLC kickin’ off in your Mutha…
So ya best be duckin’ fast
Yo T-Boz is ya being a boss
Chilli what’s up wit’ dat sauce
Dis is it
Yo “T” step on that (shhhh)
I ain’t 2 proud, I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg

Thinkin’ short of what you got
Better get it while it’s hot
Ain’t no better love than your own
Unmistaking urge 2 be
Sexin’ with society
How can you be happy alone

When I need 2 feel love
Why wait 4 so long
Cause I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg
4 something that I call my own
And I want 2 be touched
And feeling so much see cause
Everybody needs some good lovin’

Yo if I need it in the morning or the middle of the night
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (no)
If the lovin’ is strong and he got it goin’ on and
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (no)
2 inches or a yard rock hard or if it’s saggin’
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (no)
So it ain’t like I’m braggin’ just join the paddywagon cause
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg, I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg
Screamin’ loud and holdin’ sheets
Scared that you’ll be called a freak
Gotta let it go while you can
Ain’t 2 proud 2 beg you see
Cause my man belongs 2 me
And I know that he understands

When I need 2 feel love
Why wait 4 so long
Cause I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg
4 something that I call my own
And I want 2 be touched
And feeling so much see cause
Everybody needs some good lovin’

Yo if I need it in the morning or the middle of the night
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (no)
If the lovin’ is strong and he got it goin’ on and
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (no)
2 inches or a yard rock hard or if it’s saggin’
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (no)
So it ain’t like I’m braggin’ just join the paddywagon cause
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg, I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg
Screamin’ loud and holdin’ sheets
Scared that you’ll be called a freak
Gotta let it go while you can
Ain’t 2 proud 2 beg you see
Cause my man belongs 2 me
And I know that he understands

Yo Left Eye kick that rap
Realize the realism of reality treats
Us both the same
Cause satisfaction is the name of this game
So I choose to explain it’s evident
Left Eye don’t mean the rest of my body is irrelevant
In other words lets refresh your head
About pullin’ down curtains and breakin’ da waterbed
Yeah I like it when you (kiss)
Both sets of lips
Oooh on the TLC tip
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg)
What I call my own
Just you and me (uh)
Heyyyyyyyy

When I need 2 feel love
Why wait 4 so long
Cause I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg
4 something that I call my own
And I want 2 be touched
And feeling so much see cause
Everybody needs some good lovin’

Yo if I need it in the morning or the middle of the night
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (no)
If the lovin’ is strong and he got it goin’ on and
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (no)
2 inches or a yard rock hard or if it’s saggin’
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (no)
So it ain’t like I’m braggin’ just join the paddywagon cause
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg, I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg
Screamin’ loud and holdin’ sheets
Scared that you’ll be called a freak
Gotta let it go while you can
Ain’t 2 proud 2 beg you see
Cause my man belongs 2 me
And I know that he understands

I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg
TLC isn’t 2 proud 2 beg
I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg (no)
