  • [Chorus]
    You make me wanna throw my pager out the window
    Tell MCI to cut the phone calls
    Break my lease so I can move
    'Cause you a bug a boo, a bug a boo
    I wanna put your number on the call block
    Have AOL make my email stop
    'Cause you a bug a boo
    You buggin what? You buggin who? You buggin' me!
    And don't you see it ain't cool

    Its not hot that you be callin' me
    Stressin' me pagin' my beeper
    You're just non-stop
    And its not hot
    That you be leavin' me messages
    Every ten minutes and then you stop by

    When I first met you, you were cool
    But it was game you had me fooled
    'Cause twenty minutes after I gave you my number
    You already had my mailbox full

    (So wha,t you bought a pair of shoes)
    (What now I guess you think I owe you)
    (You don't have to call as much as you do)
    (I'd give, 'em back to be through with you)
    (And so what my momma likes you)
    (What now I guess you think I will too)
    (Even if the Pope he said he liked you too)
    I don't really care 'cause you're a bug a boo

    [Chorus]

    Its not hot
    That when I'm blockin' your phone number
    You call me from over your best friends house
    And its not hot that I can't even go out with my girlfriends
    Without you trackin' me down
    You need to chill out with that mess
    'Cause you can't keep havin' me stressed
    'Cause every time my phone rings it seems to be you
    And I'm prayin' that it is someone else

    (So what, you bought a pair of shoes)
    (What now I guess you think I owe you)
    (You don't have to call as much as you do)
    (I'd give 'em back to be through with you)
    (And so what my momma likes you)
    (What now I guess you think I will too)
    (Even if the Pope he said he liked you too)
    I don't really care 'cause you're a bug a boo

    [Chorus]

    When you call me on the phone you're buggin' me
    When you follow me around you're buggin' me
    Everything you do be buggin' me
    You buggin' me, you buggin' me

    When you show up at my door you buggin' me
    When you open up your mouth you buggin' me
    Every time I see your face you're buggin' me
    You're buggin' me, you're buggin' me

  • Annabelle from Eugene, OrThis song reminds me of Calvin, a guy that claimed he was my boyfriend, but when we were together, he would always bug me! He would cuss at me, and he would say things to me that were extremely hurtful! Worst of all, he would follow me wherever I went! Then he'd call me on the phone once every hour! He's definitely a bug-a-boo!
  • Danielle from Richmond, KyThis song is old but will always be remebered~!
