I didn't ask to go with you to Mexico
I really didn't need the shopping spree
In LA or Melrose, boy if you didn't know it
Now you know, I didn't need the furs or the jeweleries
Because material things don't mean much to me
And ever since you've been gone
I have been holding us down on my own


I never ever cheated
I never ever lied
So u can stop asking me asking me why
Why I never left you, and why I kept it real
And why im still with you

(chours)

You should've known better than to think I would leave
You should've known better than to doubt me
It don't matter if you are up
Matter if you are down
Either way im gonna be around
You should've known that I would stay by your side
You should've known your girl was gonna ride or die
And it just don't matter if ya rich or poor
Out or in doing 5 to 10
You should've known better


What makes you think that I would forget about you
Think about it who comes to see ya
Every Saturday and Monday I was on that receiver
It's me your girl your life your world
My family and friends they just don't understand
They say I should just leave us lone
But I say that they should just leave us lone
Don't u get it


I never ever cheated
I never ever lied
So u can stop asking me asking me why
Why I never left you, and why I kept it real
And why im still with you

(chours)

You should've known better than to think I would leave
You should've known better than to doubt me
It don't matter if you are up
Matter if you are down
Either way im gonna be around
You should've known that I would stay by your side
You should've known your girl was gonna ride or die
And it just don't matter if ya rich or poor
Out or in doing 5 to 10
You should've known better

(chours)

You should've known better than to think I would leave
You should've known better than to doubt me
It don't matter if you are up
Matter if you are down
Either way im gonna be around
You should've known that I would stay by your side
You should've known your girl was gonna ride or die
And it just don't matter if ya rich or poor
Out or in doing 5 to 10
You should've known better
