[Verse 1: Jill Scott]
I'm the one you really want, but you just can't see it
I tried and tried to make ya understand won't believe it
It's a shame!
You missin' out on a good thang, oooh oh oh
It's a shame! (Shame! Shame! )
You can't see a damn thang, uh huh! well well!
What you so scared of me for?
I'm just a woman
Maybe I got it all together like you think maybe I do! (Do! )
'Cause yo I'm fresh and cold! (So cold) uh huh!

[Chorus: Jill Scott]
I can 'fend on my own, I'm magnificent
I'm a Queen on my throne, I'm magnificent
I'm the magnificent (Say what? Say what?)
I'm the magnificent (Say what? Say what?)

[Verse 2: Jill Scott]
Your standin 'gainst the wall
Baby why you frontin'!
When you can take my hand and we can get into somethin'
It's a shame! (Shame! Shame! Shame! )
You're missin' out, on me
And it's a shame! (Shame! Shame! Shame! )
You don't even know my name
Oh oh

[Chorus: Jill Scott]
I can 'fend on my own, I'm magnificent
I'm a Queen on my throne, I'm magnificent
I'm the magnificent (Say what? Say what?)
I'm the magnificent (Say what? Say what?)

[Bridge: Jill Scott]
I'm your sunshine, and your rain!
My heart it doves inside, my love remain!
Why you can't see me? Why you playin'?
I'm just sayin'! I'm just sayin'!

[Verse 3: Eve]
Uh! Ay yo! I'm the magnificent with the sensational style
Yes! Check her head to toe don't forget the smile
Blessed! If you were smart you would try to snatch it up
Movin' like a snail when you 'gon catch up!
Be on it 'cause I'm bored laughin' 'cause you just a clown now
Ain't worthy of the Queen papi bow down
Really bow out, how does that sound?
Had a chance in the past fall back now!
I mean way back, like disappear
I see through all of you and it's so clear
And I'm so good, how you so wack?
How you let this get away you 'gon regret that
Shorty so live, from the 2-1-5
And you was too late now I'm sayin' bye bye

[Outro: Jill Scott]
And it's a shame!
(Shame! Shame! )
It's a shame! (Shame! Shame! Shame! )
And it's a shame! (Shame! Shame! Shame! )
You're missin' out, on me
And it's a shame! (Shame! Shame! Shame! )
You can't see a damn thang, uh huh!...
