  • I'ma test this out right quick on y'all
    Now keep in mind I'm an artist and I'm sensitivie about my shit
    So y'all be nice about it, alright
    Sisters how y'all feel, brothers y'all alright
    Let me see how y'all groove to this

    Alright, I'm gettin' tired of your shit
    You don't never buy me nothin'

    See every time you come around
    You got to bring Jim, James, Paul, and Tyrone

    See why can't we be by ourselves, sometimes
    See I've been having this on my mind for a long time
    I just want it to be, you and me, like It used to be, Baby
    But ya don't know how to act

    So matter of fact, I think ya better call Tyrone (call him)
    And Tell him come on, help you get your shit (come on, come on, come on)
    You need to call Tyrone (call him)
    And tell him I said come on

    Now everytime I ask you for a little cash
    You say no and turn right around and ask me for some ass
    Oh, Well hold up, listen partna, I ain't no cheap thrill
    Cause Miss Badu is always comin' for real you know the deal, nigga

    Every time we go somewhere, I gotta reach down in my purse
    To pay your way and your homeboys way and sometimes your cousin's way

    They don't never have to pay, don't have no cars
    Hang around in bars try to hang around with stars
    Like Badu, I'ma tell you the truth
    Showing groove or get the boot

    I think ya better (call him)
    And tell him come on, help you get your shit

    You need to call Tyrone (call him)
    Hold on but ya can't use my phone Writer/s: ERICA WRIGHT, NORMAN HURT
