  • You know who it is, oh boy, oh boy
    I'm not your substitute lover (said I'm not)
    Said I'm not, oh no
    Said boy, oh boy
    I'm not your substitute lover, oh no

    I know it would have been nice
    If I could have had your body
    Knowing that everybody ain't been with you (ain't been with you)
    But you told me lies
    You made me give my heart away
    But now I know the games you play (no way)
    So I'm through with you (so I'm through with you

    Listen boy, oh boy
    I'm not your substitute lover
    Oh no
    Said boy, oh boy
    I'm not your substitute lover, oh no

    You know there's gonna be a fight
    If these chicks keep calling you at night
    I seen that text you're tryin' to hide, y'see I know the truth
    Must be outta your mind
    You thought you'd never see the day
    You thought I'd let a player play but I'ma upgrade you

    Listen boy, oh boy, oh boy
    I'm not your substitute lover, oh no
    Said boy, oh boy
    I'm not your substitute lover, oh no

    You see there's not much you can say
    He said he's done changed and I finished today
    'Cause I can't do it no more
    I won't be there when you call
    So you best to move on, move on
    'Cause I couldn't be your, your substitute more
    No, no, no, no, no, no
    Listen, listen yo, listen

    I said you can't call my name like I'm going out of fashion
    And turn around and act like nothin' ain't happen
    Like no, I'm not as cracking
    Only when you need a chick
    Only when you think about this hotness, you get the itch
    That's when you get the itch
    Baby, let me be your bitch
    Boy, who you think it is? Bad gal nar tek dis
    Actin like a little boy, play me like a decoy
    You need to grow a couple, boy, you ain't got nothin' boy

    So boy, oh boy
    I'm not your substitute lover, oh no
    Said boy, oh boy
    I'm not your substitute lover, oh no (if you're sick of these boots)
    (Try cheatin' like a substitute)
    (Ladies, if you know this song, I want you sing along)
    Oh boy, oh boy
    I'm not your substitute lover, oh no
    Said boy, oh boy
    I'm not your substitute lover, oh no Writer/s: Bobby Dixon, Donald Dennis, Estelle Swaray, George Michael, John Stephens, Melbourne Miller, Paul Crosdale, Robert Lindon, Wyclef Jean
