  • * this is a song she performs in concert and which will be on a live album

    Erykah- "Lets see how ya'll groove to this"

    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, & 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)

    You need to Call Tyrone
    (Call Him)
    And tell him I said come on

    Now every time 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
    And you know the deal

    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'm gon' tell you the truth
    Showing groove
    or get the boot

    I think ya better, (Erykah Badu-He, he he)
    (Call Him)
    And tell him come on
    Help you get your shit

    You need to call Tyron
    (Call Him)
    Erykah Badu- "Hold On"
    But ya can't use my phone Writer/s: ERICA WRIGHT, NORMAN HURT
