  • Hey, boy you never had much game
    Thought I needed to upgrade
    So I went and walked away way way
    Now, I see you've been hanging out
    With that other girl in town
    Looking like a pair of clowns clowns clowns

    Remember all the things that you and I did first?
    And now you're doing them with her
    Remember all the things that you and I did first?
    You got me, got me like this
    And now you're taking her to every restaurant
    And everywhere we went, come on!
    And now you're taking her to every restaurant
    You got me, got me like this

    Boy you can say anything you want
    I don't give a shh, no one else can have ya
    I want you back
    I want you back
    Wa-want you, want you back
    I broke it off thinking you'd be cryin'
    Now I feel like shh looking at you flyin'
    I want you back
    I want you back
    Wa-want you, want you back

    Please, this ain't even jealousy
    She ain't got a thing on me
    Tryin' to rock them ugly jeans jeans jeans
    You clearly didn't think this through
    If what I've been told is true
    You'll be crawling back like boo hoo hoo

    Remember all the things that you and I did first?
    And now you're doing them with her
    Remember all the things that you and I did first?
    You got me, got me like this
    And now you're taking her to every restaurant
    And everywhere we went, come on!
    And now you're taking her to every restaurant
    You got me, got me like this

    Boy you can say anything you want
    I don't give a shh, no one else can have ya
    I want you back
    I want you back
    Wa-want you, want you back
    I broke it off thinking you'd be cryin'
    Now I feel like shh looking at you flyin'
    I want you back
    I want you back
    Wa-want you, want you back

    Ooh, I thought you'd still be mine
    When I kissed you goodbye uh oh uh oh
    Ooh, and you might be with her
    But I still had you first uh oh uh oh (Let's go! Astro!)

    We used to be, but now there's a separation between you and me
    Baby I'm moving on to another girl that understands me more
    Dated her in front your place so you can see it all
    I remember the times, when we used to bond
    But I never realized that you wanted to be mine
    So I gave her the ring, instead of you, nickname too
    I can tell you're upset, because it ain't you
    Met a new girl, and I gave her my heart
    Not noticing that you wanted me from the very start
    You want me back?
    We can just be friends, or try this thing all over again c'mon

    Boy you can say anything you want
    I don't give a shh, no one else can have ya
    I want you back
    I want you back
    Wa-want you, want you back
    I broke it off thinking you'd be cryin'
    Now I feel like shh looking at you flyin'
    I want you back
    I want you back
    Wa-want you, want you back (Let me know)

    Oh, I want you back
    I want you back
    Wa-want you, want you back

    Oh, I want you back
    I want you back
    Wa-want you, want you back
