Brandy- excuse me, can I please talk to you for a minute
Monica- uh huh, sure, you know you look kinda familiar

Brandy- yeah, you do too but, umm,
I just wanted to know do you know
Somebody named you,
You know his name.

Monica - oh, yeah definitely I know his name.

Brandy - I just wanted to let you know he's mine.

Monica - huh..no no, he's mine.

Chorus 1:
You need to give it up.
Had about enough.
Its not hard to see,
The boy is mine.

Brandy - I think it's time we got this straight,
Lets sit and talk face to face.
There is no way you could mistake him for your man,
Are you insane?

Monica - see I know that you may be
Just a bit jealous of me.
Cause you're blind if you can't see
That his love is all in me.

Brandy - see I tried to hesitate,
I didn't want to say what he told me.
He said without me
He couldnt make it through the day,
Aint that a shame.

Monica - and maybe you misunderstood,
Cause I can't see how he could
Wanna change something that's so good.
All of my love was all it took

Chorus 2:
You need to give it up.
Had about enough.
Its not hard to see,
The boy is mine.
Im sorry that you
Seem to be confused.
He belongs to me
The boy is mine.

Monica - must you do the things you do
Keep on acting like a fool
You need to know it's me not you
And if you didn't know it girl it's true.

Brandy - I think that you should realize,
And try to understand why
He is a part of my life
I know it's killing you inside.

Monica - you can say what you wanna say.
What we have you can't take.
From the truth you can't escape .
I can tell the real from the fake.

Brandy - when will you get the picture.
Youre the past, Im the future
Get away it's my time to shine
If you didn't know the boy is mine.

Chorus 2

Monica - you can't destroy this love Ive found
Your silly games I wont allow
The boy is mine without a doubt
You might as well throw in the towel

Brandy - what makes you think that he wants you,
When Im the one that brought him to
This special place in my heart
Cause he was my love right from the start

Chorus 2

Brandy: he belongs to me (sang in chorus)
Monica: the boy is mine, not yours (after chorus)
Brandy: but mine!
Monica: not yours!
Brandy: but mine!
Monica: not yours!
Brandy: but mine!

Im sorry that you
Seem to be confused.
He belongs to me
The boy is mine.
