  • While he was schemin'
    I was leanin' in the beamer just steamin'
    Can't believe that I caught my man cheatin'
    So I found another way to make him pay for it all
    So I went to Neeman Marcus on a shopping spree-ya
    and on the way I grabbed Sole and Mia
    as the cash box rang I thought everything away

    Oops!
    There goes the dreams we used to say
    Oops!
    There goes the time we spent away
    Oops!
    there goes the love I had
    but you cheated on me and that's for that now
    Oops!
    There goes the house we made a home
    Oops!
    There goes you'll never leave me alone
    Oops!
    For all the lies you told
    this is what you owe

    Hey ladies!
    When ya man want to get buck wild
    just go back and hit em up style
    get ya hands on his cash
    and spend it to the last dime
    for all the hard time
    Oh!
    When ya go then everything goes
    from the crib to the ride and the clothes
    so ya betta let him know that
    if he mess up
    ya gotta hit em up

    While he was braggin'
    I was comin' down the hill-a
    just draggin'
    all his pictures and his clothes in a bag and
    sold everything else
    'til there was just nothing left
    and I paid
    all the bills about a month too late
    its a shame we have to play these games
    the love we had just fade away (away)

    Oops!
    There goes the dreams we used to say
    Oops!
    There goes the time we spent away
    Oops!
    there goes the love I had
    but you cheated on me and that's for that now
    Oops!
    There goes the house we made a home
    Oops!
    There goes you'll never leave me alone
    Oops!
    For all the lies you told
    this is what you owe

    Hey ladies!
    When ya man want to get buck wild
    just go back and hit em up style
    get ya hands on his cash
    and spend it to the last dime
    for all the hard time
    Oh!
    When ya go then everything goes
    from the crib to the ride and the clothes
    so ya betta let him know that
    if he mess up
    ya gotta hit em up

    All of the dreams you sold
    left me out in the cold
    what happened to the days
    when we used to trust each other
    and all of the things I sold
    it will take you until you get old
    to get em back without me
    'cause a marriage is betta than money you see

    Hey ladies!
    When ya man want to get buck wild
    just go back and hit em up style
    get ya hands on his cash
    and spend it to the last dime
    for all the hard time
    Oh!
    When ya go then everything goes
    from the crib to the ride and the clothes
    so ya betta let him know that
    if he mess up
    ya gotta hit em up


    Hey Ladies!
    oh!
    If he mess up ya gotta hit em up

    Hey ladies!
    When ya man want to get buck wild
    just go back and hit em up style
    get ya hands on his cash
    and spend it to the last dime
    for all the hard time
    Oh!
    When ya go then everything goes
    from the crib to the ride and the clothes
