Chris Brown Under the Influence Lyrics Meaning (Verse 1) 

[Verse 1]
Fuckin’ Robitussin
I don’t know why this shit got me lazy right now, yeah
Can’t do Percocets or Molly
I’m turnin’ one, tryna live it up here right, right, right

Brown starts with saying that he has Robitussin– A cough and chest congestion remedy/medication that hinders him from doing both percocets and molly. 

He even gets almost irritated that he can’t do either Percocets or Molly because it doesn’t compare to the feeling he has for her.

Being under the influence of her love and her body is a better feeling and this is why he compares her to Robitussin

[Pre-Chorus]
Baby, you can
Ride it, ooh yeah
Bring it over to my place
And you be like

Bring it over to my place

[Chorus]
You don’t know what you did, did to me
Your body lightweight, speaks to me
I don’t know what you did, did to me
Your body lightweight, speaks to me 

Chris Brown says the lady should indulge him by coming over to his place to have sex with him- but not in a casual kind of way. In an emotional way.

According to him, her “body lightweight speaks to me” and he can’t explain the feeling he has for her. He doesn’t know what she has done to him and this is why he says that he is definitely under the influence of her love and her sexual prowess.
