  • I mean usher is this what it come to man
    This is how we gon' do it
    I mean I making grass grow baby, ya know
    Seeds become plants
    Boys become men
    Want we gon' do

    Wrapped around our girls like pashminas
    Whats my demeanor
    The grass is always greener on the other side
    To think of I cant give her a ring up
    I couldn't give a fuck
    I could I give a finger
    Let alone half baths and closets
    So claustrophobic if there were close objects
    Now its sort of like two door garages
    Its like two broads minagin'
    Your the best mama!

    Is there any chance
    That you remember me being any more than just a horrible man
    And would you consider
    Pullin' this trigger
    And taking a second shot at romance
    Oh Babe
    I want the days when you were my girl
    And I was your man
    Know I took you for granted
    But it wasn't until now I see how much I miss you
    Girl I'm sorry that I ran the streets acting like a damn fool, yeah
    But for once, here goes the truth

    I can't be fake I can't be phonie
    Acting all hard thats the niggas thats lonely
    I tried to flex but I confess that when you left you took the very best thing
    The best things that ever happened to me
    You took my best thing
    The best thing that I ever seen
    You took the best thing that I ever seen
    You took the, the best thing that I ever had
    And now all I feel is stress cause when you left you took the very best

    Remember Mimi or Vita, remember Isha or Eva
    I ain't got em no more, hey yes
    Niomi or Jenny, the same outcome is chillin'
    Girl, I let em all go
    No more trickin' and kissin' miscellaneous chicks
    Acting like a jerk, woman I been to church
    And I talked to the bishop and he wanted me to share this with ya
    How much I miss you

    I'm so sorry that I ran the streets acting like a damn fool
    But for once here goes the truth

    I can't be fake I can't be phonie
    Acting all hard thats the niggas thats lonely
    I tried to flex but I confess that when you left you took the very best thing
    The best things that ever happened to me
    You took my best thing
    The best thing that I ever seen
    You took the best thing that I ever seen
    You took the, the best thing that I ever had
    And now all I feel is stress cause when you left you took the very best

    Mama tried to told me
    Hovie Hov better slow it down
    You gon' lose your best thing
    If you keep gettin' round
    Like PAC needed pot
    When you old to hold you down
    Ma forever young was forever numb
    Sorry states are sorry done
    Your million and all of them
    All of em was funny time
    It wasn't you it was him
    School me once school me twice
    Three times and I was dumb
    Now its so plant the seed in me
    I got the one
    Your the best mama!

    I can't be fake I can't be phonie
    Acting all hard thats the niggas thats lonely
    I tried to flex but I confess that when you left you took the very best thing
    The best things that ever happened to me
    You took my best thing
    The best thing that I ever seen
    You took the best thing that I ever seen
    You took the, the best thing that I ever had
    And now all I feel is stress cause when you left you took the very best Writer/s: Johnta Austin, Shawn Carter, Jermaine Dupri, Curtis Mayfield, Manuel Seal
