  • Excuse me, can I please talk to you for a minute

    Uh huh, sure, you know you look kinda familiar

    Yeah, you do too but, umm,
    I just wanted to know do you know
    Somebody named you,
    You know his name.

    Oh, yeah definitely I know his name.

    I just wanted to let you know he's mine.

    Huh, no no, he's mine.

    You need to give it up.
    Had about enough.
    It's not hard to see,
    The boy is mine.

    I think it's time we got this straight,
    Let's sit and talk face to face.
    There is no way you could mistake him for your man,
    Are you insane?

    See I know that you may be
    Just a bit jealous of me.
    Cause' you're blind if you can't see
    That his love is all in me.

    See I tried to hesitate,
    I didn't want to say what he told me.
    He said without me
    He couldn't make it through the day,
    Ain't that a shame.

    And maybe you misunderstood,
    Plus I can't see how he could
    Want to take his time and that's all good.
    All of my love was all it took

    The boy is mine.
    You need to give it up.
    Had about enough.
    It's not hard to see,
    The boy is mine.
    I'm sorry that you
    Seem to be confused.
    He belongs to me
    The boy is mine.

    Must you do the things you do
    Keep on acting like a fool
    You need to know it's me not you
    And if you didn't know it girl it's true.

    I think that you should realize,
    And try to understand why
    He is a part of my life
    I know it's killing you inside.

    You can say what you want to say.
    What we have you can't take.
    From the truth you can't escape.
    I can tell the real from the fake.

    When will you get the picture.
    You're the past, I'm the future
    Get away it's my time to shine
    If you didn't know the boy is mine.

    You can't destroy this love I've found
    Your silly games I won't allow
    The boy is mine without a doubt
    You might as well throw in the towel

    What makes you think that he wants you,
    When I'm the one that brought him to
    The special place that's in my heart,
    He was my love right from the start

    He belongs to me

    The boy is mine, not yours

    But mine!

    Not yours!

    But mine!

    Not yours!

    But mine!

    I'm sorry that you
    Seem to be confused.
    He belongs to me
    The boy is mine.
