Verse 1:
Elmo: Same city but it feels just
A little bit warmer now
My song on the radio sounds so sweet
When our friends talk about me
All it does is just tear you down
But I don’t miss a thing
When I hear you speak
It all just sounds like.
Rosita and Elmo: (oooooh)
Elmo: Mmm too young too dumb to
Rosita and Elmo: realize
That you

Chorus:
Elmo: And I should of bought me flowers
And held my hands
Should of give me all your hours
When I had the chance
And taken me to every party
Cause all I wanted to do was dance
Well now I’m dancing,
But I’m dancing with another man.
Sing, Rosita.
Rosita: Hmm.
Elmo: Now, Elmo can sing it.

Rosita: Your pride, your ego, your needs and you selfish ways
Cause a super fly chick like me to walk out your life
And yeah it hurt for a little, but I finally found my way
From the top of the world I can hear you cry
It all just sounds like
Rosita and Elmo: (oooooh)
Mmm too young too dumb to
Rosita and Elmo: realize


Elmo and Rosita: That you I should of bought me flowers
And held my hands
Should of give me all my hours
When I had the chance
And taken me to every party
Cause all I wanted to do was dance
And now I’m dancing,
But I’m dancing with another man
