  • (Oh oh oh ohh)

    Here's your standing O

    Boy, you remind
    Me of a love that seemed so sublime
    Your kisses told me oh so many lies
    Shades on like I be stuntin' through the night

    But I decided with the eyes
    To keep the world from knowin' what's inside
    I didn't know oh oh oh oh-oh-oh
    I was a show oh oh oh oh-oh-oh

    And your words they had no meaning
    How didn't I forsee this?
    Happiness and congrats
    Know that
    I pretend I mean it

    So cheers, toast, bravo to you
    'Cause you're the man of the hour
    I'm a have to send you some flowers oh

    Cheers, toast, bravo to you
    The man of the hour
    You played the one that loved you the most

    So here's your standing O
    Oh oh oh ohh oh
    Oh oh oh ohh oh
    Oh oh oh ohh oh

    Boy so here's your standing O
    Oh oh oh ohh oh
    Oh oh oh ohh oh
    Oh oh oh ohh oh
    Gave you my heart and all you did
    Was pound on it (so here's your standing O)

    Here's your standing ovation
    Doctor, I was too patient
    Even when you wasn't enough
    I'm the one that taught you how to love

    And boy I gave you all of me
    Parts of affection you couldn't see
    As you embrace her in your arms give her my all
    Give her more than you gave to me

    When you had nothing I gave
    When you were weak I made you brave
    You went and leave me with the scars on my heart
    It's funny how ya'll forget it all

    So cheers, toast, bravo to you
    'Cause you're the man of the hour
    I'm a have to send you some flowers oh

    Cheers, toast, bravo to you
    The man of the hour
    You played the one that loved you the most

    So here's your standing O
    Oh oh oh ohh oh
    Oh oh oh ohh oh
    Oh oh oh ohh oh

    Boy so here's your standing O
    Oh oh oh ohh oh
    Oh oh oh ohh oh
    Oh oh oh ohh oh
    Gave you my heart and all you did
    Was pound on it (so here's your standing O)

    Round of applause to the
    Biggest fool in the world (biggest fool in the world)
    Give 'em all that you got
    And they still ride out into the sunset with the next girl

    Round of applause to the
    Biggest fool in the world (in the world)
    Give 'em all that you got
    And they still ride out into the sunset with the next girl

    Standing ovation
    Congratulations
    Damn I was down for it
    Gave you my heart and all you did was pound on it

    Standing ovation
    Congratulations
    Damn I was down for it
    Gave you my heart and all you did was pound on it

    All you did was pound on it
    Gave you my heart
    And all you did was pound on it
    All you did was pound on it Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER A. STEWART, MARIAH CAREY, TERIUS YOUNGDELL NASH
