It's Not Right But It's Okay

Charted: 3 4
  • Friday night you and your boys went out to eat
    Then they hung out, but you came home around three
    If six of y'all went out
    Then four of you were really cheap
    'Cause only two of you had dinner
    I found your credit card receipt

    It's not right but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Pack your bags up and leave
    And don't you dare come running back to me

    It's not right but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Close the door behind you leave your key
    I'd rather be alone than unhappy

    I pack your bags so you can leave town for a week (yes I am)
    The phone rings and then you look at me (Why'd you turn and look at me)
    You said it was one of your friends, down on 54th Street (boy)
    So why did 213 show up on your caller ID

    I've been through all this before
    So how could you think
    That I would stand around and take some more
    Things are gonna change
    'Cause I won't be your fool anymore
    That's why you have to leave
    So don't turn around to see my face
    There's no more tears left here for you to see

    Was it really worth you going out like that
    See I'm moving on and I refuse to turn back
    See all of this time I thought I had somebody down for Whitney
    It turns out, you were making a fool of me

    It's not right, but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Pack your bags up and leave
    And don't you dare come running back to me

    It's not right, but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Close the door behind you leave your key
    I'd rather be alone than unhappy

    It's not right, but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Pack your bags up and leave
    And don't you dare come running back to me

    It's not right, but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Close the door behind you leave your key
    I'd rather be alone than unhappy

    It's not right, but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Pack your bags up and leave
    And don't you dare come running back to me

    It's not right, but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Close the door behind you leave your key
    I'd rather be alone than unhappy

    It's not right, but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Pack your bags up and leave
    And don't you dare come running back to me

    It's not right, but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Close the door behind you leave your key
    I'd rather be alone than unhappy

    It's not right, but it's okay
    I'm gonna make it anyway
    Pack your bags up and leave Writer/s: FRED JERKINS III, LASHAWN AMEEN DANIELS, RODNEY JERKINS, ISAAC PHILLIPS, TONI ESTES

  • Bertrand from Paris, France"It's Not Right, But It's OK" is a hard-hitting anthem for women on the way out of relationships that sounded great on the radio or on the dancefloor.
