  • Used to be your baby, used to be your lady
    Thought you were the perfect lover
    All the harmony went fallin' out of key, so
    Now you gotta find another
    Now you're talkin' crazy, sayin' that you made me
    Like I was your Cinderella
    You and me are through though, watch me hit it solo
    I'mma do it acapella, yeah
    I'mma do it acapella, yeah

    Once upon a time, I met the perfect guy
    He had that Colgate smile, he had that suit & tie
    Mama always said "get a rich boyfriend,
    You don't gotta love 'em, girl, you can pretend"
    You bet I totes believed her, yeah, every word she said
    Thought he was gluten-free, but all that I got was bread
    Mama always said "nice guys finish last,
    Beat him at his own game, honey, take the cash"

    Ooh, and what a lucky girl you will be
    But no, he didn't do jack for me
    I want a bean with the beanstalk
    And if the magic ain't right, time to walk

    Used to be your baby, used to be your lady
    Thought you were the perfect lover
    All the harmony went fallin' out of key, so
    Now you gotta find another
    Now you're talkin' crazy sayin' that you made me
    Like I was your Cinderella
    You and me are through though, watch me hit it solo
    I'mma do it acapella, yeah
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    I'mma do it acapella, yeah

    Out on our first date, he took me gourmet
    We hit that Olive Garden, my Little Italy
    Daddy always said "let the gentleman pay,
    Never ever go Dutch at the buffet"
    I saw his bad intention, he didn't wanna talk
    He put the saucy on it (Oops!) time to check my watch
    Daddy always said "money can't buy class,
    You don't wanna get stuck takin' out trash"

    Ooh, and yeah I guess it wasn't meant to be
    Because he didn't do jack for me
    I want a bean with the beanstalk
    And if the magic ain't right, time to walk

    Used to be your baby, used to be your lady
    Thought you were the perfect lover
    All the harmony went fallin' out of key, so
    Now you gotta find another
    Now you're talkin' crazy sayin' that you made me
    Like I was your Cinderella
    You and me are through though, watch me hit it solo
    I'mma do it acapella

    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    I'mma do it acapella
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Watch me do it in falsetta
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Never mind, bring the beat back

    Used to be your baby, used to be your lady
    Thought you were the perfect lover
    All the harmony went fallin' out of key, so
    Now you gotta find another
    Now you're talkin' crazy sayin' that you made me
    Like I was your Cinderella
    You and me are through though, watch me hit it solo
    I'mma do it acapella
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    I'mma do it acapella, yeah Writer/s: MARTIN JOHNSON
