Lyrics or What I Hear:

what about your friends are they gonna beat on down will they turn their backs on you? you don’t understand I act a little funny I wouldn’t change nuffa won’t mind me I’ll be a friend as long as you’re a friend to me yeaaaah yeaah even though I might be easy it don’t give me no condom to deceive me is that the way that I want my friends to ever bee?

Meaning:

what about your friends are they gonna beat on down will they turn their backs on you?
This verse is about the mysteries of great friendships. T-Boz wants to massage her friend’s shoulders without it feeling awkward. But her friend won’t turn her back and makes her massage her from the front. T-Boz is like, “are you gonna beat on down?” Her friend responds by saying, “I don’t know. Wink. Wink. Nudge. Nudge.”

you don’t understand I act a little funny
she still thinks big hats are funny.

I wouldn’t change nuffa won’t mind me I’ll be a friend as long as you’re a friend to me
C is all about staying true to herself. But at the same time she’s like, “If you have dreadlocks I can still be friends with you because you can get me the hook up at Burger King.”

yeaaaah yeaah
She’s agreeing so you don’t have to.

even though I might be easy it don’t give me no condom to deceive me
She’s a total turn-on and she wants you to know that by letting you know she doesn’t have a difficult or medium mode. Sometimes players of the game hand out condoms to deceive you into thinking they have the AIDS. She doesn’t want that. This is what would light the embers to that beautiful sparkling flame called Waterfalls.

is that the way that I want my friends to ever bee?
After all this these ladies ask you for your opinion. Another therapy session for TLC that leaves them wondering if their friends are all just worker bees and themselves queen bees.

There’s another amazing in-depth look into some stellar lyrics. Feel free to offer your own meaning to this song. Did you interpret it the same way?
