[Verse 1]
Tell me you love me girl
Over and over again
Tell me you love me girl
I can be your man
I saw it coming
It hit me like an 808 straight to my heart
When you came and told me
That you had other plans
I didn't want to believe it

A careless whisper from a careless man
A new found love for the new found friend
But you're probably gonna say you don't love me
But you're probably gonna say you don't trust me
A careless whisper from a careless man
A new found love for the new found friend
But you're probably gonna say you don't love me
But you're probably gonna say you don't trust me

[Chorus]
I'm being selfish
Girl but I can't help it
I don't want nobody else to love you
Don't know what I'm gonna do
It's not like I own you
But I can't see you with another

Baby I'm so stingy
Baby I'm so stingy
I can't let go, stingy
Girl you got me so stingy

[Verse 2]
Like cake and ice cream
I've had my fair share
But I keep wanting more
You should be wifey
Ohh, instead I'm keeping
One foot in and one out the door

A careless whisper from a careless man
A new found love for the new found friend

But you're probably gonna say you don't love me
But you're probably gonna say you don't trust me
A careless whisper from a careless man
A new found love for the new found friend
But you're probably gonna say we gotta to fix this
That's why we had to remix this

[Chorus]
I'm being selfish
Girl but I can't help it
I don't want no body else to love you
Don't know what I'm gonna do
It's not like I own you
But I can't see you with another

Girl I'm just so stingy
Girl I'm just so stingy
And I can't let go, stingy
You got me so stingy

[Hook]
Tell me you love me girl
Over and over again
Tell me you love me girl
I can be your man

[Bridge]
Ain't no telling what the future holds
All I know is I can't let you go
Can't let you go
Can't let you go
I like your love better when it's flexible
Ain't no telling what the future holds
All I know is I can't let you go
Can't let you go
Can't let you go
I like it better when it's physical

[Chorus]
But girl I'm just so stingy
Girl I'm just so stingy
And I can't let go, stingy
You got me so stingy
Stingy
