(Darkchild, na na) say my name, say my name 
When 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 
Better say my name

Any other day 
I would call, 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 thiangs 
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 
When 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 
Better say my name

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 
Say 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 
Where 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 
When 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 
Better say my name

(Where my ladies at?) yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Can you say that, c'mon) yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
(All the girls say) yeah yeah yeah yeah
(I cant hear you) yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
(All of you sing) yeah yeah yeah yeah
(All the girls say) yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Break it down) oh oh oh oh oh
(DC, take it to the bridge, c'mon)

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 
When 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 
Better say my name
