Wha- wha- wha- wha- what did she say
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmmm that it's all for the best?
Of course it is

[Verse 1]
I was so wrong for so long
Only tryin' to please myself (myself)
Girl, I was caught up in her lust
When I don't really want no one else
So, no I know I should have treated you better
But me and you were meant to last forever

[Hook]
So let me in (let me in) give me another chance (another chance)
To really be your man
Cause when the roof caved in and the truth came out
I just didn't know what to do
But when I become a star we'll be living so large
I'll do anything for you
So tell me girl

[Chorus]
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say)
Mmmm that it's all for the best?
Of course it is
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say)
Wha- wha- wha- wha- what did she say

[Verse 2]
How, could I live with myself
Knowing that I let our love go (love go)
And ooh, when I do with one chance
I just gotta let you know
I know what I did wasn't clever
But me and you we're meant to be together

[Hook]
So let me in (let me in) give me another chance (another chance)
To really be your man
Cause when the roof caved in and the truth came out
I just didn't know what to do
But when I become a star we'll be living so large
I'll do anything for you
So tell me girl

[Chorus]
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say, whatcha say)
Mmmm that it's all for the best?
Of course it is
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say, whatcha say)
Wha- wha- wha- wha- what did she say

[Verse 3]
Girl, tell me whatcha said (said)
I don't want you to leave me
Though you caught me cheatin'
Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said)
I really need you in my life
Cuz things ain't right, girl
Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said)
I don't want you to leave me
Though you caught me cheatin'
Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said)
I really need you in my life
Cuz things ain't right

[Hook]
Cause when the roof caved in and the truth came out
I just didn't know what to do
But when I become a star we'll be living so large
I'll do anything for you
So baby watcha say!

[Chorus]
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say, whatcha say)
Mmmm that it's all for the best?
Of course it is
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say, whatcha say)
Wha- wha- wha- wha- what did she say

    Your kidding right. This song is choreographed to the max. I really like the sound but the message is making girls think when a cute guy pleads for mercy that he has cheated on you that it is ok to take him back because he is so cute. Please! It is definately not ok and women/girls should be a Beyonce and be strong and independant and if he liked it he should have put a ring on it. Watcha Say!

    This song is retched. Its a plea from a sleezy man, who had a premeditated affair, to beg his girlfriend back into his life. From the lyrics "You only meant well...Well of course you did." it implies that he's done this many times to his girlfriend before and she keeps letting him back in her life. I'm not against sexual songs by any means, but from the series of singles, this is a boast of cheating on his girlfriend and making her look stupid repeatedly by getting back together.

    The song was okay but it basically was saying how he fucked up and wants his girl back when he cheated on her, he realized what good of a girl he lost when she was gone but didnn't want to see that while they were together what in the world alot of dudes tend to do that why? It hurts us females especially if we really feeling you alot it hurts but I don't understand how can ya'll do that its breaks our hurt do ya'll not have feelings at all?

    People don't change. Don't ever let someone try to convince you they have. Cheaters don't stop cheating. Liars don't stop lying. What makes a person unique is their personality. And as much as they will try to convince someone that they can change and be something different they can't. Don't fall for it. From personal experience it hurts worse the first time but you're going to feel like a joke for letting them back in.

    My boyfriend loves this song so much. I asked him why, and he told me the truth. He told me that everything this songs says happened to him. Now I'm thinkin. He loves someone else? I just got really depressed :( I like this song, but not anymore cuz that's kinda painful. Oh and btw I'm not like 12 or anything I'm 16, kinda makes a difference in maturity:/ usually lol. Cuz I don't wanna get dissed in here for stupid type of s*t. Ok I'm done. Lol.
