Can't Get It Back
by Mis-Teeq



[Chorus]
Gave you my love and I can't get it back
Gave you all my time and I can't get it back
Now the ring that you gave me
You can't have it back
Cause it's not going down like that
Gave you my time and I can't get it back
Gave you all my love and I can't get it back
Now the things that you gave me
You want them back
But it's not going down like that

[Verse 1]
When we begun
You know you have a sista on sprung
When we hung
Cause a brotha was nice with his tongue
As we played every day
You always knew just what to say
As we laid and planned to get married the very next May
As time moved on, we were torn
You used to love me from dusk 'till dawn
Now you trippin' from night till morn
You've changed your song
To you can no longer keep me warm
Cause the loving we shared was gone

Cause you better know
That you can't get back
What you put in this relationship
I'm telling you so
Cause I can't get back
All my kissing and hugging and loving
So I'm telling you

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Now we're through
Out my life and away love flew
And it's cool
Put the glass shoe on another young fool
Cause I had slept
While you crept
Can't take the heat so away you step
Now upset
And don't come back for nothing that you left
I gave you my all
But if it's too small
I can't call
Cause every players got to ball
As seasons change
You couldn't hang
But if you think your coming back for this ring

Then you better know
That you can't get back
What you put in this relationship
I'm telling you so
Cause I can't get it back
All my kissing and hugging and loving
So I'm telling you

[Chorus]

Now let me tell you something 'bout me
I don't need no
No lying man standing next to me
Gonna expose the do-dos, the cheatings a no-no
And if you say something one more time
Then I'm gonna flip back to where I came from where
People on the street's tell me you've done wrong
Penny for the rabbit if you want to play hard
Don't like tit-for-tat- I don't forget anytime
You come around and take what's mine
The ring on my finger meant for a lifetime
Don't worry yourself 'cause I am past your kind
I'm too smart for you I'm gonna shine for life
That's right

Get out
Oww, Oww
Oww, Oww
No you can't have it back, silly rabbit

Cause you better know
That you can't get back
What you put in this relationship
I'm telling you so
Cause I can't get back
All my kissing and hugging and loving
So I'm telling you

[Chorus]
