Da Brat – I Was The One lyrics

Chorus
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) but I got my own whips, own chips, own crib and I don't need this shit here
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) to be dependin on you, I'm a independent woman, sorry homie that
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) to just settle for promises that you never kept, thought I would fail but you won't cause
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) but you been proven false, the truth is you lost, I pay the cost to do what ever I want, yeah

(Brat) he, thought I was virgin mary sweet as a nun, wanted to marry me with hopes I'd carry his son, or his daughter the thought I otta stay out of the parties, stay in the house, be lonesome, and talk to nobody, be cooped up for the longest, with nothin but time, misery loves company but it ain't no friend of mine
Cooked and cleaned like a hebrew slave, till I got blisters, a modern day miss ceelie, and he was my mister
But I woke up one day, started to get real slick called a couple of my friends with a few scenarios, felt like a dance with the devil, didn't like being happily married no more, had to go real quick, cause it's my time, and I done made up my mind shawntae gotta leave you behind, and get my dough cause half of that's mine, and my drow to help me the daughter sunshine, you thought I wouldn't make it but I'm livin proof, do on to others as you'd have mothafuckas do on to you

Chorus
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) but I got my own whips, own chips, own crib and I don't need this shit here
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) to be dependin on you, I'm a independent woman, sorry homie that
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) to just settle for promises that you never kept, thought I would fail but you won't cause
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) but you been proven false, the truth is you lost, I pay the cost to do what ever I want, yeah

She, was my ace boon coon in high, we grew up together, you fucked with her I'd fight you, and vice versa, from class to choir rehearsal, totin the bags, slangin them sacks, and beat up all the hood rats, rolling off with the richest niggas on the block and bring they whips back, but things changed when I started to rap, jealousy kicked in, she wouldn't be my friend, she wasn't even lookin out for me then, she didn't even have time to call me on the phone to say hello so good-bye, good-bye, you'll never get apiece of my love again don't try, my love is everlasting like Tony Terry, I'm very territorial and I'm over protective to niggas I love, cause I respect them, but not this heffa, she took things in a different direction, I can't protect her when it's said and done, shit, I am not the one, I need loyal buddies, supportive of me, roarin for me, breakin my trust can get ugly so please don't mistake my kindness for weakness, learn it, as I stomp trough the trenches on this tedious journey, I'm so hot my feet burn, and you keep yearnin to be a part of my life but you done fucked it up permanently, now it don't concern me no more

Chorus 2X
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) but I got my own whips, own chips, own crib and I don't need this shit here
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) to be dependin on you, I'm a independent woman, sorry homie that
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) to just settle for promises that you never kept, thought I would fail but you won't cause
(Anthony Hamilton) you thought I was the one
(Brat) but you been proven false, the truth is you lost, I pay the cost to do what ever I want, yeah
