  • I bet you start loving me
    Soon as I start loving someone else
    Somebody better than you
    I bet you start needing me
    Soon as you see me with someone else
    Somebody other than you
    And I know that it hurts
    You know that it hurts your pride
    But you thought the gra** was greener on the other side
    I bet you start loving me
    Soon as I start loving someone else
    Somebody better than you

    So I'm s'posed to believe that it's Feeling's calling' ova?
    I'm s'posed to believe that they're asking' you if you're home
    I went bowlin' yesterday, by me
    Can't get that ova me, not me
    I love you but I won't be a fool for you
    That is just something' that I wouldn't do, babe
    I mean I'mma stay if you could tell the truth
    But you can't, no matter how much time I ask

    Is that your chick over there giving' me the ugly stare
    The one with the silicone a**, and the brazilian hair
    You ain't gon' respect me no no no till I'm not there
    See, I got you comfortable, now you ain't really scared

    I bet you start loving me
    Soon as I start loving someone else
    Somebody better than you
    I bet you start needing me
    Soon as you see me with someone else
    Somebody other than you
    And I know that it hurts
    You know that it hurts your pride
    But you thought the gra** was greener on the other side
    I bet you start loving me
    As soon as I start loving someone else
    Somebody better than you

    I thought you'd always be there for me, yeah yeah
    But if you ask me if I knew betta now

    So you can keep that chick ova there
    Giving' me the ugly stare
    The one with the silicone a**, and the brazilian hair
    You ain't gon' respect me no no no till I ain't there
    See, I got you comfortable, now you ain't really scared

    I bet you start loving me
