Say my name, say my name
(When no one is around you say "Baby I love you")
If you ain't runnin' game
(Say my name, say my name)

You actin' kinda shady
Ain't callin' me baby, why the sudden change?
(Say my name, say my name)
If no one is around you say "Baby I love you"
If you ain't runnin' game

Say my name, say my name
You actin' kinda shady
Ain't callin' me baby
Better say my name

Any other day
I would call, you would say
Baby, how's your day?
But today it ain't the same

Every other word is a “Huh”
(Is a huh)
“Yeah, okay”
(Okay)

Could it be that you
(Could it be that you)
Are at the crib with another lady?
(Another lady)

If you took it there
First of all let me say
I am not the one
To sit around and be played

So prove yourself to me
If I'm the girl that you claim
Why don't you say the things
That you said to me yesterday?

I know you say that I am assuming things
(Somthing's goin' down, that's the way it seems)
Shouldn't be no reason why your actin' strange
(If nobody's holdin' you back from me)

'Cuz I know how you usually do
(Where you sayin' everything to me, times two)
Why can't you just tell the truth?
(If somebody's there, then tell me who?)

Say my name, say my name
(Say my name)
When no one is around you
(Around you)

Say, "Baby I love you"
(Love you)
If you ain't runnin' game
(Say my name, say my name)

You actin' kinda shady
Ain't callin' me baby, why the sudden change?
(Say my name, say my name)
If no one is around you say, "Baby I love you"

If you ain't runnin' game
(Say my name, say my name)
You actin' kinda shady
Ain't callin' me baby, better say my name

What is up with this?
Tell the truth who you're with?
How would you like it if
I came over with my clique?

Don't try to change it now
Say you gotta bounce
When two seconds ago
Said you just got in the house

It's hard to believe that you
Are at home, by yourself
When I just heard the boys
Or the voice of someone else

Just this question why
Do you feel you gotta lie ?
Then caught up in your game
When you cannot say my name
(Say my name)

I know you say that I am assuming things
(Somthing's goin' down, that's the way it seems)
Shouldn't be no reason why your actin' strange
(If nobody's holdin' you back from me )

'Cuz I know how you usually do
(Where you sayin' everything to me, times two)
Why can't you just tell the truth?
(If somebody's there, then tell me who?)

Say my name, say my name
(Say my name)
When no one is around you
Say, "Baby I love you"
(I love you)

If you ain't runnin' game
(Say my name, say my name)
Say my name, say my name

You actin' kinda shady
Ain't callin' me baby, why the sudden change?
(Sudden change)
Say my name, say my name
(Say my name even if [Incomprehensible])

If no one is around you say, "Baby I love you"
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name
(Say, say, say my name)

You actin' kinda shady
(Ooh)
Ain't callin' me baby
Better say my name

Where my ladies at?
(Yea yea yea, yea yea yea)
Can you say that? Come on
(Yea yea yea yea
Yea yea yea yea, yea yea yea)
All the girls say

(Yea yea yea yea, yea yea yea yea)
What I can't hear you
(Yea, yea yea yea)
All my ladies say
(Yea yea yea yea, yea yea yea yea)

All the girls say
(Yea yea yea yea, yea yea yea)
Break it down
(Ohh, oh, oh)
DC, take it to the bridge
Come on

I know you say that I am assuming things
(Somthing's goin' down, that's the way it seems)
Shouldn't be no reason why your actin' strange
(If nobody's holdin' you back from me )

'Cuz I know how you usually do
(Where you sayin' everything to me, times two)
Why can't you just tell the truth?
(If somebody's there, then tell me who?)

Say my name, say my name
When no one is around you
(Around you)

Say, "Baby I love you
(Call me, “Your Boo”)
If you ain't runnin' game

Say my name, say my name
(And tell me what you like to do)
You actin' kinda shady

Ain't callin' me baby, why the sudden change?
(Say my name, say my name)
If no one is around you say, "Baby I love you"
(If you ain't runnin' game)

Say my name, say my name
(Say my name)
You actin' kinda shady
(Shady)
Ain't callin' me baby
(Baby)

Better say my name
(Say my name, same my name)
If no one is around you say, "Baby I love you"
(Say, "Baby I love you")
If you ain't runnin' game

Say my name, say my name
(Say my name)
You actin' kinda shady
Ain't callin' me baby, why the sudden change?
Say my name, say my name
(Yea, yea, yea, yea yea yea)

Say my name, say my name
(Yea, yea, yea, yea yea yea)
If no one is around you say, "Baby I love you"
If you ain't runnin' game

Say my name, say my name
(Yea, yea, yea, yea yea yea)
You actin' kinda shady
Ain't callin' me baby
Betta say my name

Thou shall know she can't love you
