Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(Never, never, never thought I would)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(Never, never, never, never thought that I)
Oh no, not me
(It's a shame that she)
Never thought I'd be caught up
(Oh, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, oh)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up

Always considered myself a playa
(Got a lot to talk about)
Never thought I'd get caught up in this mess
See I had a good life
My own home, my own car, my own dough
Had no stress
(Let me tell you the story)
And then I let my guard down for a minute
'cause she was pretty
Thought she was the one for me
(Do you hear me?)
Knew it was wrong, shouldn't have did it
But she let me hit it
And I was too damn blind to see
Just what she was doin' to me

Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(I wonder if anybody out there can understand, oh)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(I wonder if anybody out there has ever been caught up)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(Not me, baby, not me)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up

Now she's on the phone
Callin' all her family and friends
Tellin' them she's wifey
And I told her ass from the beginning
I'm not ready to be settled
That's not the way it's goin' down with me
But oh, she had her game so tight
The way she threw it on me everynight
Nothin' seemed to matter
I didn't care
But she had it planned in the back of her head
That she only knew
And she played it out, until the bitter end
Oh no, no, no, no

Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(I wonder how many out there understand)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(I wonder how many of you have ever been caught up)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(See, I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(No, no, no)

One day she knocked on my door
With a letter in her hand
And she gave it to me
And said "I know you'll understand"
And as I read the letter
Tears began to stream from my eyes
She said she lost her baby
And the baby was mine, oh mine

Why, why, why did this happen to me?
(Tell me why)
Why, why, why did this happen to me?
(I wanna know why)
Why, why, why did this happen to me?
(Did this happen to me)
This is not the way it's supposed to be
(It wasn't supposed to be this way)
Tell me why, why, why did this happen to me?
(Did this happen to me)
Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why

Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy, yeah)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(Oh, no, no)
(She said she lost her baby)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(And the baby was mine)
Oh no, not me
(What am I supposed to do?)
(What am I supposed to do?)
Never thought I'd be caught up
(What am I supposed to do?)
(What am I supposed to do?)

(It was supposed to be a temporary thing)
Oh no, not me
Never thought I'd be caught up
(Yeah, yeah, yes it was)
Oh no, not me
(I'm so caught up)
Never thought I'd be caught up
(I'm so caught up)
