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

    This song is about a girl who had a crush on a guy, but another chick got to him first. Even though he had a girl friend, she didn't care because she believes that he was the only one for her. Then the girl broke up with him, and about two weeks later she was going out with him. Now that happened the ex started hating the her. But she didn't care because she knows she's better then the ex. Then she says that's she doesn't mean to brag but she has him now and it's better for him. Because the ex is a w*e and nothing original, when she says there's a million other girls who do it just like you. And now she's with him and nothing gets to her now.

    I can totally relate to this song in so many different ways its not even funny. (its hilarious!) back in middle school there was this chick I hated, and we both like the same guy. In the end I got the guy. So if you are Shannon Tipple and you just happen to be reading this, yes, this really is the charlie bactad that you almost got in A fight with in the seventh grade. And I really was talking about you in that story which I just related to all the other lyricsmode users who will eventually read this post at some point.
    Now, I'm in that exact same situation again, only its an all-girls love triangle, not your standard two-girls-and-a-guy triangle.
