I don’t mind,
Rushing through traffic just to get dinner ready in time
And I, don’t mind,
Calling when I’m late just to give you peace of mind
And I, don’t mind,
You staying out all night long hanging with the guys
But I do mind,
When you look me right dead in the eye and you tell me lies

You see it pays to tell the truth,
Look at what you had to loose
Should think before you do,
Did you not know the rules?
You see it pays to tell the truth,
Feel so sorry for you
You could have had it all, too bad you gotta fall
Now you leave, (Now you leave with zero)
Nothing, (Now you leave with zero), Nada
(Now you leave with zero)
You see it pays to tell the truth but you didn’t do it
(Now you leave with zero) Nothing
(Now you leave with zero) Nada
(Now you leave with zero) You see it pays to tell the truth, ohh

Why I tried,
Giving you chances just to get your act right
And I, I tried,
Everything from praying to breaking things, to getting out of line
Those tears, I cried,
They hurt so deep inside
They almost drained me dry
But now, it’s time,
For you to man up 'cause I’m taking back what’s mine

You see it pays to tell the truth,
Look at what you had to loose
Should think before you do, did you not know the rules?
You see it pays to tell the truth,
Feel so sorry for you
You could have had it all,
Too bad you gotta fall Now you leave,
(Now you leave with zero) Nothing,
(Now you leave with zero) Nada
(Now you leave with zero)You see it pays to tell the truth
But you didn’t do it
(Nothing, now you leave with zero), nothing
(Now you leave with zero) Nada
(Now you leave with zero) You see it pays to tell the truth

I lie just to protect you, never to disrespect you
'Cause what we have was so 38 special
And it was times that I heard niggas test you
But I ain’t even ask, I was just waiting to catch you
But you caught me and everything was on me
It was time to face the music, everything was on key
And them lies sounded good, didn’t it, now you sick of me?
Now I’m supposed to leave with zero, is you kidding me?
One minus one equals none
And if you gonna leave then you might leave with some
But you gonna think about me every time you see my son
And Ima think about you every time I see the sun, in the morning
It’s gonna be times we get caught up in the moment
But don’t turn your back on your man you belong with
'Cause if you loose then I loose too
But if you cool then I’m cool too (Now you leave with nothing)

(Now you leave with zero) Nothing,
Now you leave with zero), Nada
(Now you leave with zero)
You see it pays to tell the truth but u didn't do it
(Now you leave with zero), nothing
(Now you leave with zero) Nada
(Now you leave with zero) You see it pays to tell the truth ohh

(Tell the truth, tell the truth)
