Erykah Badu – Certainly (Flipped It) lyrics

Uh, Flip with me,
Might be cool.

Who gave you permission to rearrange me
Certainly not me
Who told you that it was alright to love me
Certainly, certainly not me.

I was not looking for no love affair, baby
And now you wanna fix me
I was not looking for no love affair
And now you want to mold me
Was not looking for no love affair, baby
Now you wanna kiss me
Was not looking for no love affair
And now you wanna control me
Hold me

I know you're trying to get creative with my love
And that's alright, but
You tried to get a little tricky
Turned my back
And then you slipped me a mickey.

Certainly, certainly, certainly not me (I wasn't ready)
Certainly, certainly, certainly not me
Certainly, certainly, certainly not me
Certainly, certainly, certainly not me

Goodbye, but now it goes, (when I wake up)
I don't need nobody tellin' me the time, oooh uh uh oh

Who gave you permission to rearrange me
Certainly not me
No way, no
Who told you that it was alright to love me
Certainly, certainly not me

I was not looking for no love affair
And now you wanna fix me
I was not looking for no love affair
And now you want to mold me
Was not looking for no love affair
Now you wanna kiss me
Was not looking for no love affair
And now you wanna control me
Hold me

I know you're trying to get creative with my love
And that's real cute, boy,
You tried to get a little tricky
Turned my back
And then you slipped me a mickey.

Certainly, certainly, certainly not me (ooh)
Certainly, certainly, certainly not me (ooh)
Certainly, certainly, certainly not me (ooh)
Certainly, certainly, certainly not me (ooh)

You know that that was mine,
When I wake up (when I wake up)
I don't need nobody tellin' me the time, no
The world is mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, uh, (when I wake up)
I don't need no nigga,
Rollin' over,
Lookin' after me.

No no,
No no,
No no,
No no,
No no,
No no,
No no no no no no no no no,
Oh no, oh no, oouuuhh,
I don't need, I don't need, no,
No no no no
No no no no no no no no no, oh
(And he slipped me a mickey) ooouuh
(And he slipped me a mickey) (You know I wasn't ready)
(And he slipped me a mickey) ('cause I admit baby)
(And he slipped me a mickey) (baby)
(And he slipped me a mickey) (oooh)
(And he slipped me a mickey) (oh no nono)
(And he slipped me a mickey) (yeah, and he slipped)
(And he slipped me a mickey) (and he slipped he slipped)

Ooouuh, oh no, no no no no no no no no oh,
Oouh oh no oh, heyiiih,
Love affair, love affair, love love, it ain't no love affair, ooh,
Oohh ohh, ouuh oh,
Aaauuh.
