Mmm mmm
Mmm mmm
Mmm mmm
Mmm mmm

Yesterday was not a good day
I went to the doctor to hear the news
He had the nerve to call me crazy
Deranged, a victim of child abuse

He said somethin' was wrong with my head
Told me someone was messin' with my mind
Said you gotta get out the situation girl
It's only a matter of time

And I knew he was right
One day I'm gonna wake up
And find the strength to leave your ass behind
Maybe if your people wasn't stacked
Or of the sex was whack
Or maybe if you was fat
But damn

(Why you gotta look so good?)
Damn you make it so hard to leave you
(Why you gotta look so good?)
I don't want nobody else to have you
(So why you gotta look so good?)
'Cause I know you ain't never gon' treat me right
(Why you gotta look so good?)
And I can't get no sleep at night
No, no

Mmm mmm
Mmm mmm
(Mmm, mmm you look so good)
Mmm mmm
(Mmm, why you look so good?)
Mmm mmm

The flyest thing that I ever seen
Lookin' like the cover to a magazine
Remember the day that I met you?
I knew right away I had to mess with you
I had to get with you

All you do is sit and run your mouth
So sick and tired
I wanna put you out
I see a fuss and fight you almost every night
I keep packin' my shit
But them my ass is tight

One day I'm gonna wake up
And find the strength to leave your ass behind
Boy I wish you wasn't quite so big
And didn't have sexy lips
Boy you know that shoulda shit
So why you got

(Why you gotta look so good?)
Why you gotta look so good?
You make it so hard to leave you
(Why you gotta look so good?)
Why you gotta look so good?
Don't want nobody else to have you
(Why you gotta look so good?)
Why you gotta look so good?
I know you ain't never gon' treat me right
(Why you gotta look so good?)
And I can't get no sleep at night
No, no

(Why you gotta look so good?)
No, why
Why you gotta look so damn good?
(Why you gotta look so good)
Oh, ya makin' me sick
I can never say no to them luscious lips
(Why you gotta look so good?)
You got a million chicks
And I don't know why I put up with ya shit
(Why you gotta look so good?)
Why ya gotta look so good?
It's so hard to leave you babe

We both know
If you woulda put on some extra pounds
I would left a long time ago
But ya bank account is jumpin'
And ya neck got all kinda of glow
You know that every time you end up cryin' I fold
And can't seem to make up a good enough reason to hit the road

For some reason I'm movin' backwards
When I try to stamp out
For every pair of pants I pack
You take a pair of pants out
It's a shame how ya female anatomy
Keeps on grabbin' me
Havin' me spendin' endless
Endless time with Toya and Natalie

I admit your body is one of the things that had to be
Havin' me fallin' victim and all of my niggas mad at me
I was taught in every relationship there's a casualty
So I suggest you stop naggin' me
'Cause I will not keep sittin' back puttin' up with your shit
And I will not, nope go back on my word as soon as you strip
And I will not, nope contradict myself
Oh look what happend I forgot
Make me come back up in the same spot

Just can't say goodbye
(Why you gotta look so good?)
No, no
(Why you gotta look so good?)
(Why you gotta look so good?)
I had to take a chance
(Why you gotta look so good?)
(Why you gotta look so good?)
(Why you gotta look so good?)
