Fight for our right to love, yeah (right to love, yeah)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

Nobody wanta' see us together
Nobody thought that we'd last forever
I feel them hoping and praying
Things between us don't get better (better)

Men steady coming after you (you)
Women steady coming after me (me)
Seems like er'body want to go for self and
Don't wanna respect boundary

Telling you all those lies (oh, ooh
Just to get on your side (side)
But I must admit there was a couple
Of secrets I held inside (inside)

But just know that I try (try)
To always apologize (apologize)
And I'm gonna have you first
Always in my heart to keep you satisfied (satisfied)

But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)

Cause we gonna fight, oh yes, we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Believe we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Fight for our right to love, yeah (right to love, yeah)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

You got every right to want to leave (wanna leave)
You got every right to want to go (wanna go)
You got every right to hit the road (hit the road)
And never talk to me no more (me no more)

You don't even have to call (have to call)
Or even check for me at all (me at all)
Because the way I've been acting lately (I've been acting)
Has been off the wall (off the wall)

Especially towards you (towards you)
Putting girls before you (before you)
And they've been watching everything I've been doing
Just to hurt you (hurt you)

Most of it just ain't true (ain't true)
And they won't show you (show you)
How much of a queen you are to me
And why I love you, baby

Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)
Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)

Cause we gonna fight, oh yes, we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Believe we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Fight for our right to love, yeah (right to love, yeah)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

(Oh, oh, ooh, oh, oh) Cause I got you babe
(Ooh, oh, ooh, oh, ooh) Cause I got you babe
(Oh, oh, ooh, oh) Cause I got you babe
(Oh, ooh, oh, ooh) Cause I got you babe

Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)
Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)

Cause we gonna fight, oh yes, we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Believe we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Fight for our right to love, yeah (right to love, yeah)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)
