  • I shouldn't have to explain, it's so simple
    But I'm doing you a favor
    Seems you're lost in your brain, no signal
    So I lay it on the table

    Not the time, and I'm not playing
    I know you've seen the signs, don't wanna read them
    It's not fine, it's not okay
    Boy all you gotta do right now is listen

    I mean what I mean when I say so
    Not tryna be mean when I say no
    So don't play a fool and twist my rules
    I mean what I mean when I say so
    Not tryna be mean when I say no
    So trust me, I mean what I mean
    I mean what I mean
    So trust me, I mean what I mean

    Give it up, it's annoying (Give it up)
    You wanna see me, gotta make an appointment (That's right)
    I hit 'em with that "Oh no, I got a boyfriend" (Damn girl)
    Yeah, he was acting like he ain't know what no meant (Nah)
    I don't care about the paper you're getting
    How you spending for my ship and then you still ain't hitting
    Only see me sitting pretty so they saying I'm so Diddy
    Can't you see me, nobody get me, and I will hurt feelings
    Yeah, so keep your hands up off me
    I get it if I want it, I don't care what you bought me
    I touchdown, now he think he in the endzone
    Called him little bird and put him back up in the friendzone
    Laced up, all about the pay cut
    If I say it then I mean it, ain't nobody made up (What?)
    Bitty from the waist up, you can look but you can't touch
    High heels and high standards, ain't gotta say much (Nah)

    I mean what I mean when I say so
    Not tryna be mean when I say no
    So don't play a fool and twist my rules
    I mean what I mean when I say so
    Not tryna be mean when I say no
    So trust me, I mean what I mean
    I mean what I mean
    So trust me, I mean what I mean

    Better keep your hands to yourself
    If you don't wanna see me get mental
    I'm just here to have a good time
    I would open that door if I wanted you to come in
    See that's your final warning shot now

    Uh, take cover, my girls all hover
    When we see a creep, we put 'em to sleep, uh
    Macaroni Tony in a ditch
    'Cause he grabbed my ass and called me a bitch
    Aluna shoulda called a lot sooner
    Got wolves around the world, coulda sent one of my juniors
    But now 47 here
    And I brought re-enforcement to make sure we clear

    I mean what I mean when I say so
    Not tryna be mean when I say no
    So don't play a fool and twist my rules
    I mean what I mean when I say so
    Not tryna be mean when I say no
    So trust me, I mean what I mean
    I mean what I mean

    So trust me, so trust me Writer/s: ALUNA DEWJI-FRANCIS, ALUNA FRANCIS, AMANDA LUCILLE WARNER, DANIEL NICHOLAS SEIXAS RADCLYFFE, DANIEL RADCLYFFE, GEORGE EDWARD REID, GEORGE REID, HAROLD LILLY, HAROLD SPENCER JR. LILLY, HASBEN JONES, SEANDREA SLEDGE
