I'm in the business of misery,
Let's take it from the top.
She's got a body like an hourglass it's ticking like a clock.
It's a matter of time before we all run out,
When I thought he was mine she caught him by the mouth.

I waited eight long months,
She finally set him free
.
I told him I can't lie he was the only one for me.
Two weeks and we caught on fire,
She's got it out for me,
But I wear the biggest smile.

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now.
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag.
Just steal it all away from you now.
But God does it feel so good,
Cause I got him where I want him now.
And if you could then you know you would.
Cause God it just feels so,
It just feels so good.

Second chances they don't ever matter, people never change.
Once a whore you're nothing more, I'm sorry, that'll never change.
And about forgiveness, we're both supposed to have exchanged.
I'm sorry honey, but I'm passin' up, now look this way.
Well there's a million other girls who do it just like you.
Looking as innocent as possible to get to who,
They want and what they like it's easy if you do it right.
Well I refuse, I refuse, I refuse!

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now.
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
Just steal it all away from you now
.
But God does it feel so good,
Cause I got him where I want him right now.
And if you could then you know you would.
Cause God it just feels so,
It just feels so good.

I watched his wildest dreams come true
Not one of them involving you
Just watch my wildest dreams come true
Not one of them involving.

Whoa, I never meant to brag,
But I got him where I want him now.

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now.
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
Just steal it all away from you now.
But God does it feel so good,
Cause I got what I wanted now
And if you could then you know you would.
Cause God it just feels so,
It just feels so good.

    This song is about a girl who had a crush on a guy, But the guy started dating another girl. She didn't care, She still liked him. After 8 months, they broke up. After 2 weeks, they were together. She's saying that she's not meaning to brag, But now he's hers. There are a million girls who do it just like her, but she's different. She got it the right way, And it feels so good. :D

    well i like this song because the bitchy girl deserves to loose the guy... the guy deserves to have somebody else... there's no use begging for 2nd chances 'coz it's lame... this song is very much dedicated to my hubby's ex gf who was trying to stop our marriage but she failed to do it...

I GOT HIM, WOOT type of thing, saying like, i never meant to brag and stuff. and i know that she doesn't like the girl that he went out with because it mentioned that she's a whore. yes (:
