  • I got too many girls on hold for you to be so bold
    Too many on my team for you to act so mean
    You say you wanna go and have fun, well you ain't the only one
    If I ring, don't let it ring too long or I'm gone

    I got Alicia waitin', Aisha waitin'
    All the eesha's waitin' on me
    So why you contemplatin', playa hatin'
    If this is how it's gonna be?

    I'm calling all my lovelies (calling all my lovelies)
    'Cause I can't get a hold of you
    Since you ain't thinking of me (since you ain't thinking of me)
    Oh, look what you making me do

    Honey pie, I'm far too fly to be on standby
    Sendin' me straight to voicemail, suga, what the hell?
    Oh, you ought to be ashamed, playin' these childish games
    I don't get down like that, tell me where you at, hit me back

    I got Alicia waitin', Aisha waitin'
    All the eesha's waitin' on me
    So why you contemplatin', playa hatin'
    If this is how it's gonna be?

    I'm calling all my lovelies (calling all my lovelies)
    'Cause I can't get a hold of you
    Since you ain't thinking of me (since you ain't thinking of me)
    Oh, look what you making me do

    Pick up the phone, pick up the phone
    'Cause all this loving needs a home
    Oh no, look at what you started, baby
    Now I'm left here brokenhearted, baby
    There's a pain in my chest I cannot explain
    I told myself I wasn't gon' cry (I'm not gonna cry, no no)
    Then somebody's gotta come dry these eyes (dry these eyes)

    "Hi, you've reached Halle Berry
    Sorry, I can't get to the phone right now, but if you leave your name and number
    I'll get right back to you"

    Damn, damn, damn

    I'm calling, calling, calling, calling all my lovelies
    'Cause I can't get a hold of you
    Oh, since you ain't thinking of me (since you ain't thinking of me, baby)
    Look what you making me do

    Pick up the phone, pick up the phone
    'Cause all this loving needs a home, oh Writer/s: Christopher Brody Brown, Emile Hayne, James Edward Fauntleroy II, Jeffrey Bhasker, Peter Gene Hernandez, Philip Martin Lawrence II
