2 years ago, promises is all I heard, wait a minute, let me finish
2 years ago, promises is all I heard, out of your mouth
Now you wanna walk away boy, and tear down the walls in this house
You used to tell me sweet things, sweet things in the morning time
Now all you do is hurt me, and think that everything is fine

You better be careful what you say to me
'Cause it might turn around on you
You better be careful what you do to me
'Cause somebody might do it to you

Now who was there for you, when your ass was out of work
All by myself, taking little man to church
So quick to hang up the phone, when I step, in the room
Then you want to turn it all around, I'm gettin tired of playing fool

You better be careful what you say to me
'Cause it might turn around on you
You better be careful what you do to me
'Cause somebody might do it to you

If the shoe fits, wear it boy (yaw yaw yaw yaw, yaw yaw yaw yaw)
If the shoe fits, wear it boy (yaw yaw yaw yaw, yaw yaw yaw yaw)

2 years ago, didn't know you had male friends, wait a minute, let me finish
2 years ago, didn't know you had male friends, off up in college
I found out you're still reaching out to some of them, Mrs. Busy Body
You used to listen to me, when you were down and lost
But now, you don't even respect me, ever since I got laid off

You better be careful what you say to me
'Cause it might turn around on you
You better be careful what you do to me
'Cause somebody might do it to you

Now who gave you money, when your ass was broke, without a doubt
And even though lil' man is not my child, I made him mine, hm-hm
So quick to run to your friends, and talk about, what we do in this house
And then you wanna party all night long, what the hell you talking 'bout

You better be careful what you say to me
'Cause it might turn around on you
You better be careful what you do to me
'Cause somebody might do it to you

If the shoe fits, wear it girl (Yaw yaw yaw yaw, yaw yaw yaw yaw)
If the shoe fits, wear it girl (Yaw yaw yaw yaw, yaw yaw yaw yaw)
