  • Pull up your pants (just like 'em)
    Take out the trash (just like 'em)
    Gettin' your cash like 'em
    Fast like 'em
    Girl, you wanna act like he did (I'm talkin' 'bout)
    Security codes on everything
    On vibrate so your phone don't ever ring
    Joint account and another one he don't know about (hey)

    Wish we could switch up the roles and I could be that
    Tell you I love you, but when you call, I never get back
    Would you ask them questions like me, like where you be at?
    'Cause I'm out, four in the morning on the corner, rolling, doing my own thing

    [Chorus]
    What if I, had a thing on the side
    Made you cry?
    Would the rules change up or would they still apply?
    If I played you like a toy
    Sometimes I wish I could act like a boy

    Can't be getting mad what, you mad?
    Can't handle that

    Can't be getting mad what, you mad?
    Can't handle that

    Girl, go ahead and be (just like 'em)
    Go run the streets (just like 'em)
    Go home, missin' sleep like 'em, creep like 'em
    Front wit' your friends
    Act hard when you wit' 'em, like 'em
    Keep a straight face when you tell a lie
    Always keep an airtight alibi
    Keep it hid in the dark
    What he don't know won't break his heart (hey)

    Wish we could switch up the roles and I could be that
    Tell you I love you, but when you call, I never get back
    Would you ask them questions like me, like where you be at?
    'Cause I'm out, four in the morning on the corner, rolling, doing my own thing

    [Chorus]

    Can't be getting mad what, you mad?
    Can't handle that

    Can't be getting mad what, you mad?
    Can't handle that

    Can't be getting mad what, you mad?
    Can't handle that

    Can't be getting mad what, you mad?
    Can't handle that

    If I was always gone
    Let the sun beat me home (Would you like that?)
    I told you I was with my crew when I knew it wasn't true if I act like you
    Walked a mile off in your shoes (Would you like that?)
    Messing with your head again
    Dose of your own medicine

    [Chorus]

    Can't be getting mad what, you mad?
    Can't handle that

    Can't be getting mad what, you mad?
    Can't handle that

    Can't be getting mad what, you mad?
    Can't handle that

    Can't be getting mad what, you mad?
    Can't handle that

    R-A, go, here's the clutch

    If I paged you (Would you like that?)
    Had friends (Would you like that?)
    Never call (Would you like that?)
    No, no, you wouldn't like that, no!

    What if I, made you cry? Would they still apply?
    What if I, if I played you like a toy
    Sometimes I wish I could act like a boy Writer/s: CIARA PRINCESS HARRIS, CANDICE CLOTIEL NELSON, BALEWA M. MUHAMMAD, CALVIN KENON, EZEKIEL L. LEWIS, PATRICK MICHAEL SMITH
