Lately I've been trying to figure out your mind
And why you're dissin' me
Poor little me
And why you have a change of heart
Turn it all around
And then try to put it on me
Poor little me

Don't ya know
I can be a trip
I can make things hard
But baby I believe that you've still got a heart that's why
I try to stop myself before I start
Cause I can make it tough
I can make it rough
But I won't

And I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
Giving you a minute to try to work it all out
And I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
And I'll be giving you a minute to try to work it all out

Baby work it on work it on out
Baby work it on work it on out
Oo-ooohh

Baby how could you be hangin' out on the town
And claim that you're missin me
Poor little me
When you knew all the time that you could have been
With your home girl
Lovin' and a kissin' on me
Sweet little me

Don't you know if you wanna be a man
You gotta work real hard
If you wanna make me feel like I'm your number one then
Nothin in the world should make us part
Cause we can make it work
If you take away the hurt from the heart

I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
And I'm giving you a minute to try to work it all out
And I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
And I'll be giving you a minute to try to work it all out

Baby work it on work it on out

Work it baby
(Work, work, work)
Keep tryin' to work it on out

I can be a trip but I choose not to
Deep inside of you I think there's still good in you boy
Don't gimme no reason not to trust you
Just take the benefit
Don't gimme no lip
And I'll be sweet to you

I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
And I'm giving you a minute to
Try to work it on out

I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
And I'm giving you a minute to
Try to work it on out

I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
(I'll be giving it to you)
And I'm giving you a minute to
Try to work it on out

I'll be giving you a minute or two
To try to work it out
(I want to work it baby)
I'll be giving you a minute or two
To try to work it out
(But don't you take too long baby)

I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
And I'm giving you a minute to try to work it all out
And I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
And I'm giving you a minute to try to work it all out

I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
Giving you a minute to try to work it all out
I'll be giving you the benefit of the doubt
Giving you a minute to try to work it all out

[Ad lib to fade]
