About Leave (Get Out)

"Leave (Get Out)" is the debut single by American singer JoJo from her self-titled debut studio album (2004). It was released as the album's lead single on February 24, 2004. Produced by Danish production duo Soulshock & Karlin, the song became a commercial success, reaching number 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number two in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and on the European Hot 100 Singles. It also reached the top five in Belgium, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. The single was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on October 25, 2004. When the single reached number one on Billboard's Pop Songs chart, JoJo became, at age 13, the youngest female solo artist to have a number-one single in the United States. JoJo has expressed her displeasure with the song, and most of her self-titled album, for its overall pop sound. However, she is grateful that it put her on the musical map. When she would perform the song at her most recent concerts, she would arrange it to the point of being almost unrecognizable, adding jazzier instrumentation to the verses and heavier guitars to the bridge. The song appears in the 2004 PlayStation 2 karaoke game Karaoke Revolution Volume 3 and Singstar Pop Hits. On her 2011 tour, JoJo would open her set with her band playing the intro of Dropkick Murphys "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" which would then segue into "Leave".

I've been waiting all day for ya babe
So won't you come sit and talk to me
And tell me how we're gonna be together always
Hope you know that when this late at night
I hold on to a pillow tight
I think about how you promised me forever
I never thought that anyone could make me feel this way
Now that you're here boy all I want is just a chance to say

Get out (leave) right now
It's the end of you and me
It's too late (now) and I can't wait for you to be gone
'Cause I know about her (who)
And I wonder (why) how I bought all the lies
You said that you would treat me right
But you were just a waste of time (waste of time)

Tell me why you looking so confused
When I'm the one that didn't know the truth
How could you ever be so cold?
You go behind my back and call my friend
Boy you must've fall and bumped your head
'Cause you left your number on her phone
So now that after all that you've said and done
Maybe I'm the one to blame but
To think that you could be the one
Well it didn't work out that way

Get out (leave) right now
It's the end of you and me
It's too late (now) and I can't wait for you to be gone (you to be gone)
'Cause I know about her (move)
And I wonder (why) how I bought all the lies (all the lies)
You said that you would treat me right (you said that you)
But you were just a waste of time (waste of time)

I wanted you right here with me
But I have no choice you've got to leave
Because my heart is breaking with
Every word I'm saying, I gave up everything I had
On something that just would not last
But I refuse to cry
No tears will fall from these eyes (oh, oh)

Get out
Get out (leave) right now
It's the end of you and me (you and me)
It's too late (now) and I can't wait for you to be gone (you to be gone)
'Cause I know about her (move)
And I wonder (why) how I bought all the lies (how did I)
You said that you would treat me right (you said that you)
But you were just a waste of time (waste of time)

Get out (leave) right now
It's the end of you and me (hey yeah)
It's too late (now) and I can't wait for you to be gone (you to be gone)
'Cause I know about her (move)
And I wonder (why) how I bought all the lies
You said that you would treat me right (treat me right)
But you were just a waste of time (waste of time)

Get out (leave) (you and me)
It's too late (too late) (now)
About her (now) (why)
You said that you would treat me right
But you were just a waste of time (oh)
