The rumor in the street, baby, girl
Is that you're leavin' me
After all I've done for you
How could you leave me

Baby, all your girlfriends say
That you're leavin' me
After all I've done for you
How could you leave me

Everybody's talkin' and the word is on the street
That you're playin' games and sayin' things like you're leavin' me (Mmm)
I don't know just what to do after all the things that we've been through
It should have come to you, and thought that you won't play just like a fool (Mmm, hmm)

Your so-called girlfriends would never lie on you (No, no)
So everything they say, girl, it must be true
You got my lying here, oh, baby, by myself
The rumor in the street, you're with somebody else

The rumor in the street, baby, girl
Is that you're leavin' me (The rumor in the street is that you're leavin' me)
After all I've done for you
How could you leave me (After all I done for you, my, my, my, baby)

Baby, all your girlfriends say
That you're leavin' me (All your girlfriends said that you're leavin' me)
After all I've done for you
How could you leave me (Oh, yeah...yeah)

Now you got another lover tryin' to take my place
You can try to hide it all you want, it's written (Mmm) on your face (Mmm)
Now I'm sad and lonely 'cause I thought I was your only
But you run behind my back, now tell me how you gonna act

You had those proper things and, baby, diamond rings
Anything for you, oh, girl, I wouldn't do (Uh-huh)
Now I'm lying here, oh, baby, by myself
The rumor in the street, you're with somebody else

The rumor in the street, baby, girl
Is that you're leavin' me (The rumor in the street is that you're leavin' me)
After all I've done for you
How could you leave me (After all I done for you, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh)

Baby, all your girlfriends say
That you're leavin' me (All your girlfriends said that you're leavin' me)
After all I've done for you (Oh, baby)
How could you leave me (Oh...oh...oh...yeah...)

Mmm
(Yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeah, oh...

The rumor in the street, baby, girl
Is that you're leavin' me (The rumor in the street is that you're leavin' me)
After all I've done for you
How could you leave me (How could you leave me, oh, yeah...)

Baby, all your girlfriends say
That you're leavin' me (All your girlfriends said that you're leavin' me, oh, yes, they are)
After all I've done for you
How could you leave me (How could you leave me, girl, oh...oh...oh...oh...)

The rumor in the street, baby, girl
Is that you're leavin' me (The rumor in the street is that you're leavin' me)
After all I've done for you
How could you leave me
