I see you driving 'round town
With the girl I love and I'm like,
Forget you!
Oo, oo, ooo
I guess the change in my pocket
Wasn't enough I'm like,
Forget you!
And forget her too!
I said, if I was richer, I'd still be with ya
Ha, now ain't those some shoes? (ain't those some shoes?)
And although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best with a...
Forget you!
Oo, oo, ooo

Yeah I'm sorry, I can't afford a ferrari,
But that don't mean I can't get you there.
I guess she's an xbox and I'm more atari,
But the way you play your game ain't fair.

I pity the fool that falls in love with you
(Oh she's a gold digger)
Well
(Just thought you should know negro)
Ooooooh
I've got some news for you
Yeah go run and tell your little boyfriend

Now I know, that I had to borrow,
Beg and steal and lie and cheat.
Trying to keep ya, trying to please ya.
'Cause being in love with you butt ain't cheap.

I pity the fool that falls in love with you
(Oh she's a gold digger)
Well
(Just thought you should know negro)
Ooooooh
I've got some news for you
Oh, I really hate yo butt right now.

Now baby, baby, baby, why d'you wanna wanna hurt me so bad?
(So bad, so bad, so bad)
I tried to tell my mamma but she told me
"this is one for your dad"
(Your dad, your dad, your dad) Yes she did.
Uh! Whhhy? Uh! Whhhy? Uh!
Whhhy lady? Oh! I love you oh!
I still love you. Oooh!
