At first we started out real cool 
Taking me places I ain't never been 
But now, you're getting comfortable 
Ain't doing those things you did no more 
You're slowly making me pay for 
Things your money should be handling 
And now you ask to use my car 
Drive it all day and don't fill up the tank 
And you have the audacity to even come and step to me 
Ask to hold some money from me until 
You get your check next week 

You trifling 
(Good for nothing type of brother) 
Silly me 
(Why haven't I found another) 
(A baller), when times get hard need someone to help me out 
(Instead of) a scrub like you who don't know what a man's about 

Can you pay my bills 
Can you pay my telephone bills 
Can you pay my automo-bills 
If you did then maybe we could chill 
I don't think you do 
So, you and me are through 
Can you pay my bills 
Can you pay my telephone bills 
Can you pay my automo-bills 
If you did then maybe we could chill 
I don't think you do 
So, you and me are through 

Now you've been maxing out my cards 
Giving me bad credit buying me gifts with my 
Own ends 
Haven't paid the first bill 
But you're steady heading to the mall 
Going on shopping sprees perpetrating to your friends that you be balling 
And then you use my cell phone 
Calling whoever that you think at home 
And then when the bill comes all of a sudden you be acting dumb 
Don't know where none of these calls come from 
When your mama's number's here more than once 

Can you pay my bills 
Can you pay my telephone bills 
Can you pay my automo-bills 
If you did then maybe we could chill 
I don't think you do 
So, you and me are through 
Can you pay my bills 
Can you pay my telephone bills 
Can you pay my automo-bills 
If you did then maybe we could chill 
I don't think you do 
So, you and me are through 

(You trifling, good for nothing type of brother) 
(Oh silly me, why haven't I found another) 
(You trifling, good for nothing type of brother) 
(Oh silly me, why haven't I found another) 
(You trifling, good for nothing type of brother) 
(Oh silly me, why haven't I found another) 

Can you pay my bills 
Can you pay my telephone bills 
Can you pay my automo-bills 
If you did then maybe we could chill 
I don't think you do 
So, you and me are through 
Can you pay my bills 
Can you pay my telephone bills 
Can you pay my automo-bills 
If you did then maybe we could chill 
I don't think you do 
So, you and me are through
