  • You know sometimes
    You have to put yourself first
    I'm doin' me

    Yeah, yeah
    Eh, eh, eh

    Said I
    Said I
    Yeah yeah, eh

    Sometimes as women we give more than we should
    To a man that just don't treat us good, no

    Gave him my heart my time
    Did all that I could
    In the past
    To keep him here with me, yeah

    But now I woke up,
    Opened both my eyes up
    Realize that I don't need any other.

    Man, if you can't love me equally,
    Then you don't need to be with me
    Nothing more beautiful then knowing you're worth
    And finally, yeah uh
    I know exactly what I deserve

    [Chorus]
    Doin me, this time around
    Doin' me, don't need you now
    I rather be by myself,
    I won't let your drama hold me down
    Doin' me, this time around
    Doin me, I've finally found
    I'd rather be by myself, I'm doin' me
    Yeah

    Won't spend another minute wasting my time
    On a man, hey, that only tells me lies, no
    Ain't saying no, no, no, no that I don't need love
    But them games, I don't need that in my life, no

    Doin' me, this time around
    Doin' me, don't need you now
    I'd rather be by myself,
    I won't let your drama hold me down
    Doin' me, this time around
    Doin' me, I've finally found
    I'd rather be by myself, I'm doin' me.

    I could pray for you to act right everyday
    But it ain't up to me to make you change
    Life is too damn short to live unhappily
    So I'm being selfish putting myself in first place

    Doin me, this time around
    Doin' me, don't need you now
    I rather be by myself,
    I won't let your drama hold me down
    Doin' me, this time around
    Doin me, I've finally found
    I'd rather be by myself, I'm doin' me.
    Yeah yeah

    I'm doing me
    This time around
    I'm doing me
    This time around
    No more crying, going through hell
    It's so good, I'm lovin' myself
    I'm doin' me
    This time around
    I'm doin' me
    I'm doin' me
    Yeah yeah
    I'm doin' me
    Yeah yeah Writer/s: CHARLES HARMON, CLAUDE KELLY
