The song is about a man's desire to engage romantically with a woman he meets on the street. Although the woman is already in a relationship, the man refuses to consider this relevant to his pursuit. She continues to reject him and persists in explaining her satisfaction with her current relationship. She even offers to alternatively pursue a platonic friendship with the man, but he declines. He further suggests that he is not interested in a committed relationship or plying her with gifts; rather he is in favor of physical pleasures they can experience together. She rebukes him and remarks that she prefers what she has.
The music behind the lyrics samples the 1980 disco single "Rescue Me" by A Taste of Honey as well as the song "Spread Love" by the a cappella group Take 6, the song "High Power Rap" by the rap group Crash Crew, and the electric guitar riff from "Mama Used To Say" by Junior, and the horn from "Get Up and Dance" by Freedom. The spoken intro of the song is sampled from the 1990 film Die Hard 2 in which John McClane (played by Bruce Willis) complains about his bad luck.
