  • Oh, no, no, no, no, no
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no

    Ooh

    When you feel it in your body
    You found somebody who makes you change your ways
    Like hanging with your crew
    Said you act like you're ready
    But you don't really know
    And everything in your past, you wanna let it go

    I've been there, done it, fucked around
    After all that, this is what I found
    Nobody wants to be alone
    If you're touched by the words in this song
    Then maybe

    You got it, you got it bad
    When you're on the phone
    Hang up and you call right back
    You got it, you got it bad
    If you miss a day without your friend
    Your whole life's off track
    You know you got it bad when you're stuck in the house
    You don't wanna have fun
    It's all you think about
    You got it bad when you're out with someone
    But you keep on thinkin' 'bout somebody else
    You got it bad

    When you say that you love 'em
    And you really know
    Everything that used to matter, it don't matter no more
    Like my money, all my cars
    (You can have it all and)
    Flowers, cards and candy
    (I do it just 'cause I'm)
    Said I'm fortunate to have you girl
    I want you to know
    I really adore you
    All my people that know what's going on
    Look at your mate, help me sing my song
    Tell her I'm your man, you're my girl
    I'm gon' tell it to the whole wide world
    Ladies say I'm your girl, you're my man
    Promise to love you the best I can

    See I've been there, done it, fucked around
    After all that, this is what I found
    Everyone of y'all are just like me
    It's too bad that you can't see
    That you got it bad, hey

    You got it, you got it bad
    When you're on the phone
    Hang up and you call right back
    You got it, you got it bad
    If you miss a day without your friend
    Your whole life's off track
    You know you got it bad when you're stuck in the house
    You don't wanna have fun
    It's all you think about
    You got it bad when you're out with someone
    But you keep on thinkin' bout somebody else
    You got it bad

    You got it, you got it bad
    When you're on the phone
    Hang up and you call right back
    You got it, you got it bad
    If you miss a day without your friend
    Your whole life's off track
    You know you got it bad when you're stuck in the house
    You don't wanna have fun
    It's all you think about
    You got it bad when you're out with someone
    But you keep on thinkin' 'bout somebody else Writer/s: Bryan Michael Paul Cox, Jermaine Dupri Mauldin, Usher Raymond
