Boy, you make it hard
You make it hard to leave
You make it hard
(You're no good for me)

Every day, every night
You were out with your boys
Getting high, while I worked hard to pay the rent

And my girls said I should
Lose you but I stuck with you
'Cause you promised to change

What I gave, you took
Nothing came in return
But I, I kept on giving, baby

'Cause the sex was so good
And your talk was so smooth
That I, I guess I bought it, baby

Now I finally see you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
You're down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

I'm sayin'
Ooh, ooh, ooh
And, aye, aye, aye
You know I really loved you boy

Ooh, ooh, ooh
And, aye, aye, aye
What a waste of a man so fine

When I found out about all your fooling around
Well I, I had to cry about it
Then you said you're sorry and you love me only
I, I should have left you right then

Now I finally see you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
You're down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

I'm sayin'
Ooh, ooh, ooh
And, aye, aye, aye
You know I really loved you, boy

Ooh, ooh, ooh
And, aye, aye, aye
What a waste of a man so fine

Ooh, ooh, ooh
And, aye, aye, aye
Give me back my heart
Give me back my time

Ooh, ooh, ooh
And, aye, aye, aye
What a waste of a woman so fine

Now I finally see you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
You're down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

I'm sayin'
Ooh, ooh, ooh
And, aye, aye, aye
Give me back my heart
Give me back my time

Ooh, ooh, ooh
And, aye, aye, aye
What a waste of a woman so fine

Ooh, ooh, ooh
And, aye, aye, aye
Give me back my heart
Give me back my time

Ooh, ooh, ooh
And, aye, aye, aye
What a waste of a woman so fine
