Ninanajna
Come on boy
don�t be afraid boy
I�m gonna give it to you.

Tell me what-ya want babe

tell me what-ya wishing for
I�ll make you feel so sweet.
I'll open up your fantasies
I'll make your dreams come true
But if you wanna ninanaj with me
I�ll tell you what to do.

Dance with me nananinananajna
Sing with me nananinananajna
I wanna be with you
l wanna give it to you.
Dance with me nananinananajna
Sing with me nananinananajna
I wanna be with you
l wanna give my love to you.

I can make your wishes and your wildest dreams come true
l can make Beyonce and
Shakira dance for you.
I'm dangerously in love with you
I�m dying for your kiss
But if you wanna ninanaj with me
I�m gonna give it to you.

Dance with me nananinananajna
Sing with me nananinananajna
I wanna be with you

Dance with me nananinananajna
Sing with me nananinananajna
I wanna be with you
l wanna give my love to you.

You found a way to touch my heart and soul
you've opened up my mind
I'll never let you go.

You�re like another part of me
with out you I can't live
my life is incomplete.

Pej si ti ninanajna
Zapej mi ninanajna
zaigraj so mene
i se ti dadam se.
Pej si ti ninanajna
zapej mi ninanajna
zaigraj so mene
i jas se bidam so tebe.
