'Cause I'm all that you want, boy All that you can have, boy Got me spread like a buffet Bon a, bon appétit, baby
The singer is confident that she is everything that the boy desires and is willing to offer herself to him like a variety of dishes on a buffet table using the French phrase Bon Appétit, a polite way to invite someone to enjoy their meal.


Appetite for seduction Fresh out the oven Melt in your mouth kind of lovin' Bon a, bon appétit, baby (woo)
The singer expresses her desire for seduction in the lyrics while the catchy phrase, 'fresh out of the oven' implies the girl that she is hot and irresistible. Furthermore, the phrase 'melt in your mouth kind of lovin'' paints an image of the singer as someone who is deeply passionate, with the French expression used once again to invoke an idea of satisfaction.


Looks like you've been starvin' You got those hungry eyes (woo) You could use some sugar 'Cause your levels ain't right (woo) I'm a five-star Michelin A Kobe flown in (woo) You want what I'm cookin', boy
The singer uses metaphors related to food, comparing the boy with someone who is starving and requiring sugar because of their low energy levels. She follows this with an impression of being a highly-sought after culinary artist, like a five-star Michelin, with Kobe beef flown in to offer exceptional cuisine. The singer asks if the boy wants her, as if her culinary prowess is her recipe for seduction.


Let me take you (woo) Under candlelight We can wine and dine A table for two And it's okay (woo) If you take your time Eat with your hands, fine I'm on the menu
The singer uses seductive language and sets a romantic atmosphere with candles and a table for two. She lets the boy enjoy the meal at his own pace, even being okay with him eating with his hands, as she is the menu item itself, making it clear that she is both the meal and the seduction tactic.


So you want some more? Well I'm open twenty-four (woo) Wanna keep you satisfied Customer's always right (woo) Hope you've got some room For the world's best cherry pie (woo) Gonna hit that sweet tooth (ay), boy
The singer continues with food metaphors, using her 'menu item' status like a restaurant that is open 24/7 and aims for customer satisfaction. She hopes the boy has room for dessert (world's best cherry pie) and that she can satisfy his sweet tooth (a term used to describe someone's fondness for sweets).


Sweet potato pie (sweet) It'll change your mind (change) Got you runnin' back for seconds (runnin') Every single night (hey)
Sweet potato pie is used as an example of a dish that will change one's mind. The lyrics imply that the singer's cooking is affecting the boy deeply and that he is returning for more every night.


I'm the one they say can change your life (takeoff) No waterfall, she drippin' wet, just like my ice (blast) Said she want a Migo night, I ask her, "what's the price?" (Hold on) If she do right, told her get whatever you like (Offset)
The featured artists offer their own narrations, rapping about their experiences with women and what they're willing to do for them. The lyrics speak about how the girl loves Migos and wants to spend a night with them. If she does right, she gets whatever she wants.


I grab her legs and I divide, aight Make her do a donut when she ride, aight Lookin' at the eyes of a dime, make you blind (dime) In her spine and I'm on some diamonds change the climate (chime)
The rapper discusses his sexual encounters with women, referring to grabbing a girl's legs and making her 'ride' like a car, and how he enjoys the women he is with, using the term 'dime' to express that they are worth the effort. He also speaks about the girl's spinal movements and how it can change the atmosphere using a comparison with diamonds to change the climate.


Sweet tooth (sweet), no tooth fairy (no) Whipped cream (whip), no dairy (yeah) Got her hot light on, screamin', "I'm ready" (hot) But no horses (woo), no carriage (yeah)
Back to the main theme, the singer uses food metaphors to describe the boy's sweet tooth, with no fairy to give him the sweetness he desires. The phrase 'hot light' is likely referring to the red light on a 'hot-now' donut store. However, the lyrics clarify that she does not want a horse and carriage ride, instead of opting for delicious food and lovemaking to satisfy her needs.


Under candlelight (yeah) Bon appétit, baby (woo)
The song concludes with a final mention of the candlelit situation and the French phrase Bon Appétit with a seductive tone.
