Lyrics

MR. LUNT
Baby, I know your eyes see right through my disguise

ALL
And no one can deny

MR. LUNT
Maybe that I’m the one whose love is no surprise

ALL
And he can’t tell you no lie

MR. LUNT
But there’s a secret I’ve been hidin’ I can’t keep it no more

ALL
There’s this thing about himself he’s never told you before.
Baby, he need to tell you something

MR. LUNT
I don’t got a belly button
Oh I need to tell you something

ALL
Can you figure it out
He don’t got a belly button

ALL
Belly button no, oh no no

MR. LUNT
Baby, please don’t squeal, just tell me how you feel

ALL
‘Cause his love is for real

MR. LUNT
And if you went away, my heart would never heal

ALL
So to you he appeals

MR. LUNT
There’s something missing in my middle and it’s hard to ignore

ALL
There’s this thing about himself he’s never told you before
Baby, he need to tell you something

MR. LUNT
I don’t got a belly button
Oh I need to tell you something

ALL
Can you figure it out
He don’t got a belly button
Belly button no, oh no no

KHALIL
Belly button!
ALL
Uh, uh

KHALIL
Belly button!
ALL
Uh, uh

KHALIL
You say your belly button’s missing, there’s no reason for alarm
It’s a common thing for gourds, it won’t do you any harm
Your technically a fruit and with that much being said…except around your head!
You could opt for a prosthetic but of course you’d have to know
It’d be covered by insurance but not your HMO

ALL
Belly button! Uh, uh
Belly button! Uh, uh

MR. LUNT
…something absent from my midriff’s décor

ALL
There’s this thing about himself he’s never told you before
Baby, he need to tell you something

MR. LUNT
I don’t got a belly button
Oh I need to tell you something

ALL
Can you figure it out
He don’t got a belly button
Belly button no, oh no no
No belly button!
