You must be a football coach
The way you got me playin' the field

from R. Kelly – Ignition (Remix) Lyrics on Rap Genius


He “plays the field” to hit on whoever he sees until finding this girl. Now he’s trying to get with girl, so he’ll do whatever she tells him to like she’s his coach. More specifically, this probably refers to R. Kelly performing oral sex on the girl:

  1. The common meaning for “playing the field” is to mess around with a lot of girls at once. Given the context, it’s unlikely this is what R. Kelly meant. He seems more concerned with fulfilling the girl’s wishes
  2. The “field” is a slang term for a woman’s crotch
  3. The other two verses also end with sexual imagery
