Say I'm fucked up
Well, you might be fucked up too
I might be fucked up, well baby girl
How about you?

You used to be my nigga
You used to be that cool bitch
You used to smoke with a nigga
But now you on that bullshit
You used to sex me crazy
You used to call me baby
Now all you do it nag me like a 5 year old from the backseat
You used to be so confident
But all that shit came and went
Used to be anti-internet
But now you constantly blogging and shit!

You used to strip for a nigga
Now you ain't got nothing but lip for a nigga
Halfway decent for me, but you dress up for your girlfriends?
Listening to what they say god your ass w/out a husband
Put you in a Benz, you did everything to get me
Ain't done nothing since but keep talking about what it should be
Car, no, daycare, paid all the fucking rent
Know you want to run the world
But first, try running this:

But y'all don't hear me
Stop fucking with me, woman
Stop fucking with me if you ain't fucking with me

You used to be so sweet
But now you act bitter
Just so I don't hear that shit, I drown my liver in this liquor
You used to be like this man
You used to be my best friend
Now all you do it judge me
And scream out f*ck me, but won't f*ck me
Oh Hell to the no! Now I'm all up in the clubs
Now I'm all up in the mall
Now you in my cell phone screaming "who's this bitch?"
She's just a friend, yeah that's it
And now you want to trip - ain't that some shit?
Yesterday you didn't give a f*ck, now you asking where I been
And you hating on every girl who walks by
Talking about: "where she think she going in that outfit?"
She don't even love me, she loves the competition
Every man out there: I hope you're listening


There's nothing at home, so I'm searching for love
Tried to get through, but you don't give a f*ck
She can't love me, when she doesn't love herself
Feel like I'm sleepin' with somebody else
I'm seeing somebody else, I'm touching somebody else
Now I'm fuckin' somebody else
But go ahead and blame me if it helps
