About Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)

"Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)" is a song by American recording artist Monica. It was written by producer Dallas Austin, Willie James Baker, Derek Simmons, Carlton Ridenhour, Quincy Jones III, Abrim Tilmon, Hank Shocklee, Eric Sadler and LL Cool J. while production was helmed by the former. It contains samples of LL Cool J's 1993 song "Back Seat (Of My Jeep)" and Public Enemy's 1987 song "Bring the Noise," and also features elements from "You're Gettin' a Little Too Smart" by The Detroit Emeralds, as sampled by "Back Seat (Of My Jeep)". The song was released as the album's lead single in the United States in early 1995. It sold 1.2 million copies domestically and earned a platinum certification from the RIAA. It spent two weeks at number-one on the U. S. Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart, and peaked at number two for three non consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. It was kept from the top by "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?" by Bryan Adams and "Waterfalls" by TLC. It also reached the top ten of the singles charts in Australia and New Zealand. "Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)," alongside follow-up single "Before You Walk Out of My Life," would make the singer the youngest recording artist to have two consecutive number-one hits on the Billboard R&B chart at the age of fourteen. An accompanying music video for the single, shot in black-and-white, was directed by Rich Murray and released in June 1995.

It's just one of them days, when I wanna be all alone
It's just one of them days, when I gotta be all alone
It's just one of them days, don't take it personal
I just wanna be all alone, and you think I treat you wrong

I wanna take some time out to think things through
I know it always feels like I'm doing you wrong
But I'm so in love with you
So understand that I'm only in love your the only one I need
So have no thought that I want to leave and baby trust me please

Just one of them days
That a girl goes through
When I'm angry inside
Don't want to take it out on you
Just one of them days
Don't take it personal
I just wanna be all alone
And you think I treat you wrong

Don't take it personal
Baby baby baby baby, don't take it personal

I see and I think about every thing we do
And I find myself in misery and that ain't cool
Hey now, I really want to be with you the whole way through
But the way you make me feel inside keeps me confused
As I swing back from mood to mood it's not because of you
I never want you to be insecure,
So won't you understand that I'm only in love, your the only one I need
I'll be there for you when you need me boy, so baby don't you leave

Just one of them days
That a girl goes through
When I'm angry inside
Don't want to take it out on you
Just one of them days
Don't take it personal
I just wanna be all alone
And you think I treat you wrong

Just one of them days
That a girl goes through
When I'm angry inside
Don't want to take it out on you
Just one of them days
Don't take it personal
I just wanna be all alone
And you think I treat you wrong

Don't take it personal
Baby baby baby baby, don't take it personal
Don't take it personal, yeah , don't take it personal

Just one of them days
That a girl goes through
When I'm angry inside
Don't want to take it out on you
Just one of them days
Don't take it personal
I just wanna be all alone
And you think I treat you wrong

Don't take it personal baby
Personal baby, personal baby, personal baby
Personal baby, personal baby
