Destinys Child – Once A Fool lyrics

I was once a fool too
I know what he's putting you through
So don't tell me what I should do
I ain't gonna end up like you
His love has got you blind
Wake up and use your mind
I'll let you do your thing
Stop play your hating on me

Kelly, ain't it a real shame?
That boy you call your man, he's running game
Don't need to call it out but you're getting played
I'm just looking out, don't let him do you that way


Beyonc?, oh Beyonc? Yeah
Don't talk about my man 'cause you're not fair
You thought you were strong you were also so in love
But I let you be, so let me be in love

No way will I stay and watch him play you for a fool
Don't let him play your play on you


I'm just looking out
You're my girl no doubt
I know how men can be
I just think he loves me
Don't be a fool no more
I can't let him go
I'm trynna make you see
I still think he loves me

[William Floyd]
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Now check it
You don't know how I feel
You need to stop tripping
You don't even know the deal for real
Nothing but love and respect for this girl
That's why she's laced with these diamonds and pearls
Now I know she's been hurt in the past
Gonna find a way to make this love affair last
You got too much time on your hand
You need to stop hating and find your own man
Bee can't tell first child love for saying
Babygirl for you I tear up all this land
Against the forces of sand we gotta make a stand
We could be lovers and the best of friends
A legion of souldiers couldn't make me retreat
That just shows how much your love inspires me
When I look in your eyes and I notice your smile
Put it all together you're my Destiny's Child

(repeat/fade out)
