  • Lisa had me thinkin that she was the only one for me
    And Nikki had those angel eyes
    that changed my mind
    the day she looked at me
    Then outta nowhere you came walking in my life
    you really blew my mind
    Now I don't care about those other girls
    it's only u I need in my world baby....

    Excuse me my cu-tie
    tell me could u be the kinda shorty just for me
    my everlasting meant to be
    (oh girl) oh girl (Mario)
    From the moment I saw u (My heart starts racing)
    and I can't let u walk away
    So won't you tell me girl (girl)
    could u the kinda cutie that I need
    My one my destiny (Mario) lil lady tell me could u be

    Not sayin Trina wasn't cool
    but u changed my point of view baby
    Chantel was nice sweet and everythang
    but nothin compares to u (yeaah)
    U stole my heart and I'm torn apart
    I don't wanna cause the pain girl
    I would gladly throw it all away
    for what I found in u today

    Excuse me, my cu-tie (cu-tie uh-uh)
    tell me could u be the kinda shorty just for me
    my everlasting meant to be (oh girl) oh girl (Mario)
    From the moment I saw u (My heart starts racing)
    I can't let u walk away
    So won't you tell me girl (girl)
    could u the kinda cutie that I need
    My one my destiny lil lady tell me could u be

    Ohh u could be my summer thang
    And there's a price that won't tell me
    have I finally, finally found u baby

    You see I've been a playa
    but I'm tired of playin
    Been waitin for a love like u
    And I'm not fakin (I'm not fakin)
    You came into my life and I feel so brand new (so brand new)
    I'm so thankful for u girl I swear Writer/s: ANTONIO DIXON, DAMON THOMAS, ERIK DAWKINS, HARVEY MASON JR., J. NEWT

  • Chris from Union, NjThis song is basically Mario singing about an ex girlfriend who supposedly loved him .. but left him for somebody else even though he gave her his everything, which he thought was good enough .. repeating how could she do this to him and forget about him ..

    In the video, Mario's friend [Cassidy] spots his ex girlfriend with another man and informs Mario who begins to get upset and starts to reminise about all the good times they had together, pointing back to a point where he gave her a diamond bracelet .. which he still wears, meaning she must of gave it back to him so she don't have anything to remember him of ..

    The video continues to follow his ex girlfriend and her new man around and into her apartment where the new man discovers pictures of her and Mario in her wallet when she pulls it out and becomes furious and storms out the apartment ..

    Mario, who was parked outside sees his ex girlfriend new man leaving in anger and runs up to her apartment and knocks on the door furiously .. giving up, he begins to leave until she comes out and screams out his name .. then runs to him telling him how sorry she is and how she wants to try again .. but despite all their good times he remembered, he doesn't forget how she did him wrong and gives her a kiss on the cheek [which his ex girlfriend was aiming for his lips] and walks away leaving in her hands the same diamond bracelet he gave her once before .. to let her keep something to remember him by.

    This song is amazing .. Mario is a great singer who sings about situations we've all been through.

    This song basically sends a message that states, never break up with somebody if you're going to regret it later .. because whose heart you broke the first time, might come back around and not be willing to take you back .. thus breaking your heart as well ..

    Be real guys ..

    - Bity
