It Makes Me Ill

Album: No Strings Attached (1999)
  • [Justin:]
    I was hanging with the fellas
    Saw you with your new boyfriend, it made me jealous
    I was hoping that I'd never see you with him
    But it's all good, 'cause I'm glad that I met him
    Heh
    'Cause now I know the competition's very slim to none
    And I can tell by looking that he's not the one
    He's not the type you said you liked
    His style is wack, clothes are bad
    Come on, girl, let him go
    I want you back

    [JC:]
    Call me a hater, if you want to
    But I only hate on him 'cause I want you
    Say I'm trippin' if you feel like
    But you without me ain't right (ain't right)
    You can say I'm crazy, if you want to
    That's true-- I'm crazy 'bout you
    You could say I'm breakin' down inside (inside)
    'Cause I can't see you with another guy

    [Chorus:]
    It makes me ill
    To see you give
    Love and attention at his will
    And you can't imagine how it makes me feel
    To see you with him
    Oh, it makes me ill
    To see you give
    Love and attention at his will
    And you can't imagine how it makes me feel
    To see you with him

    [JC:]
    Girl I know that we broke up
    But that doesn't mean you should give the cold shoulder
    'Cause you know that I truly do adore ya
    And that other guy can't do nothin' for ya
    Uh, see
    I can tell that you don't really love that guy
    But there's no need for you to go and waste your time
    I think you know I love ya more
    Girl you gotta let him go
    I want you so just give him the boot

    [Justin:]
    Call me a hater, if you want to
    But I only hate on him 'cause I want you
    You can say I'm trippin' if you feel like
    But you without me ain't right (ain't right)
    You can say I'm crazy, if you want to
    That's true-- I'm crazy 'bout you
    You could say I'm breakin' down inside (inside)
    'Cause I can't see you with another guy

    It makes me ill
    To see you give
    Love and attention at his will
    And you can't imagine how it makes me feel
    To see you with him
    Oh, it makes me ill
    To see you give
    Love and attention at his will
    And you can't imagine how it makes me feel
    To see you with him

    Ohh...
    It makes me ill cause you used to be my girl
    Used to be (my girl) used to be my girl yeahhh
    It makes me ill (ooh) cause you used to be my girl (c'mon)
    My girl
    So baby come back to me (baby...)

    It makes me ill
    To see you give
    Love and attention at his will (at his will..)
    And you can't imagine how it makes me feel
    To see you with him (when I see you with him)
    Oh, it makes me ill
    To see you give
    Love and attention at his will (at his will)
    And you can't imagine how it makes me feel
    To see you with him (baby I'm jealous)

    Oh it makes me ill
    To see you give
    Love and attention at his will
    And you can't imagine how it makes me feel
    To see you with him (you can't imagine how it makes me feel)

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh..
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh...
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh..
