On Wednesday, T-Pain went to Twitter to finally clarify the song’s lyrics—specifically the lines in the hook. Many people have sang the song: "I'ma buy you a drank / (Ooh wee) I'ma take you home with me." But the actual lyrics are: "I'ma buy you a drank (And then) I'ma take you home with me."
In retrospect, this makes a lot more sense. But don’t feel too bad if you’ve been messing up the lyrics for the past decade. T-Pain insists the lyrics are "whatever you want it to be." He’s just grateful that you enjoy the record.

He apologized for the misunderstanding.
