Well di man called Swade and di man called Rebel
Nuff time innocent and we get inna trouble yuh know

[Verse 1: Swade (Tony Rebel)]
What a situation I found myself it seems there's nothing I can do
To prove to di whole a mi bredring them that mi and Stacy we're just cool
Caan undastand how we tight so yet I swear there's nothing going on
True them nuh know seh this girls been always there to help mi when I'm down
Worst when they see us holding hands, and laughing together
(Strictly platonic iyah)
Got ugly thinking we're making plans, to run off together

[Chorus: Swade]
Can't see were just friends, they say I'm burning my lady
Some criticize and say, mi have mi cake and I eat it up
They can't see were just friends, they say I'm secretly loving you
Oh no! Dem seh we could a never live so, a nothing nah gwaan

[Verse 2: Tony Rebel (Swade)]
Well every time when I talk to a woman out there
(Everybody claim seh mi deh wid har)
And if I open a door or pull out a chair
(Everybody claim seh mi deh wid har)
And when mi cousin and mi Aunty come check mi from there
(Everybody claim seh mi deh wid har)
Seh more time di comments dem so unfair
(Everybody claim seh mi deh wid har)
Mi overstand it, chatty chatty habit
Will never see relationship platonic
Neva go beyond it, always deh pon it
Waitin fi di first opportunity fi grab it
Dem love to say it, mi nuh okay it
Tell them to research and dem still don't obey it
Over di years I've had it, labba mout crab it
More time them mek all di empress panic

[Chorus]

[Verse 3: Swade]
Then one a mi bredrin a ask yo look how she hot so yuh must see mad yo
It's either lie yuh lie or lose yuh mind or something's wrong wid yuh yuh
And when I insist she's just a friend, him seh a mi yuh a dead it so
And if I don't remember when, tell mi when him bun him girlfriend
Caan seh dem tings never gwaan, from di day I an I baan
Believe mi when I tell yuh mon, dat is not di situation

[Verse 4: Tony Rebel (Swade)]
Well everytime when I talk to a woman out there
(Everybody claim seh mi deh wid har)
And if I open a door or pull out a chair
(Everybody claim seh mi deh wid har)
And when mi cousin and mi Aunty come check mi from there
(Everybody claim seh mi deh wid har)
Seh more time di comments dem so unfair
(Everybody claim seh mi deh wid har)
When oonu know how if oonu mind smudgey so
As yuh see mi wid di girl yuh bawl out bingo
Ready fi go bring it come then yuh haffi carry go
What yuh really see is just imaginary video

[Chorus]
