Say my name, say my name 
If no one is around you 
Say baby I love you 
If you ain't runnin' game 
Say my name, say my name 
You actin' kinda shady 
Ain't callin' me baby 
Why the sudden change 
Say my name, say my name 
If no one is around you 
Say baby I love you 
If you ain't runnin' game 
Say my name, say my name 
You actin' kinda shady 
Ain't callin' me baby 
Why the sudden change 

Any other day 
I would call and you would say 
Baby how's your day 
But today, it ain't the same 
Every other word 
Is "uh-huh" yeah "ok" 
Could it be that you 
Are at the crib with another lady 
If you took it there 
First of all, let me say 
I am not the one 
To sit around, and be played 
So prove yourself to me 
I am the girl that you claim 
Why don't you say the thangs 
That you said to me yesterday 

I know you say that I am assuming things 
Something's going down that's the way it seems 
Shouldn't be the reason why you're acting strange 
If nobody's holding you back from me 
Cause I know how you usually do 
When you say everything to me times two 
Why can't you just tell the truth 
If somebody's there then tell me who 

Say my name, say my name 
If no one is around you 
Say baby I love you 
If you ain't runnin' game 
Say my name, say my name 
You actin' kinda shady 
Ain't callin' me baby 
Why the sudden change 
Say my name, say my name 
If no one is around you 
Say baby I love you 
If you ain't runnin' game 
Say my name, say my name 
You actin' kinda shady 
Ain't callin' me baby 
Why the sudden change 

What is up with this 
Tell the truth,who you with 
How would you like it if 
I came over with my clique 
Don't try to change it now 
See you gotta bounce 
When two seconds ago 
You said you just got in the house 
It's hard to believe that you 
Are at home, by yourself 
When I just heard the voice 
Heard the voice of someone else 
Just this question why 
Do you feel you gotta lie 
Gettin' caught up in your game 
When you can not say my name 

I know you say that I am assuming things 
Something's going down that's the way it seems 
Shouldn't be the reason why you're acting strange 
If nobody's holding you back from me 
Cause I know how you usually do 
When you say everything to me times two 
Why can't you just tell the truth 
If somebody's there then tell me who 

Say my name, say my name 
If no one is around you 
Say baby I love you 
If you ain't runnin' game 
Say my name, say my name 
You actin' kinda shady 
Ain't callin' me baby 
Why the sudden change 
Say my name, say my name 
If no one is around you 
Say baby I love you 
If you ain't runnin' game 
Say my name, say my name 
You actin' kinda shady 
Ain't callin' me baby 
Why the sudden change 

I know you say that I am assuming things 
Something's going down that's the way it seems 
Shouldn't be the reason why you're acting strange 
If nobody's holding you back from me 
Cause I know how you usually do 
When you say everything to me times two 
Why can't you just tell the truth 
If somebody's there then tell me who 

Say my name, say my name 
If no one is around you 
Say baby I love you 
If you ain't runnin' game 
Say my name, say my name 
You actin' kinda shady 
Ain't callin' me baby 
Why the sudden change 
Say my name, say my name 
If no one is around you 
Say baby I love you 
If you ain't runnin' game 
Say my name, say my name 
You actin' kinda shady 
Ain't callin' me baby 
Why the sudden change
