R. Kelly – I Don't Mean It lyrics

Baby, oh baby
I know we had an argument and all
Ooh babe
And I must have said some pretty foul shit but
Mmm, mmm
I just want you to know that I ain't mean none of that
Baby, baby
None of it

Now I was supposed to be a man about it
Shoulda never left your side
No way, no how
Put too many years in this relationship
And it's not that serious for us to split
Now I admit sometimes I make mistakes
But still I appreciate the love we make
Stop at the door and put your bags back down
Now baby please can we work this out

Now I might say you can walk
(But I don't mean it)
And I might name call
(I don't mean it)
I may pull some silly stunts
(Uhm mmm)
But that's just a front, I don't mean it
(Now wait a minute hear me out)
Now I may holler at you
(I don't mean it)
And I may tell you we're through
(But I don't mean it, no, no)
May give you looks that can kill
(Can kill)
But it's not for real
(Not for real)
I don't mean it
(I don't mean it hey)

Now I was supposed to be more understanding
Instead of tryin to be so damn demandin
Baby I'm willing to drop my ego
And do the things I should have done and more
See I know that I can be a better man
Girl all you gotta do is take my hand
Promise me this time
I'm goin all the way
And show you all the reasons why you stayed

Now I might say you can walk
(But I don't mean it, no, no)
And I might name call
(Girl I don't mean it)
I may pull some silly stunts
(Ooh yeah)
But that's just a front, I don't mean it
(Listen baby)
Now I may holler at you
(But I don't mean it)
And I may tell you we're through
(Girl you should know, I don't mean it)
May give you looks that can kill
(Um mmm)
But it's not for real
I don't mean it
(Come here girl)

See I never meant
To break you down
And make you cry, make you cry
Oh please baby please
Turn back around
Don't you say goodbye, say goodbye
Sometimes I know that
I can take it
Just a little bit too far
But yo my heart is good
Heart is good
So baby you don't have to worry
You're gonna see a change
Girl you know I love ya
Even though I may say

Now I might say you can walk
(I don't mean it)
And I might name call
(But I don't mean it)
I may pull some silly stunts
(Hey)
But that's just a front
(Hey, hey)
I don't mean it
(I don't mean it, I don't mean it)
Now I may holler at you
(When I'm hollerin' at you)
And I may tell you we're through
(I never mean it when I say we're through)
May give you looks that can kill
(Kill)
But it's not for real
(Real)
I don't mean it
(I don't mean it)

Now I might say you can walk
(I don't mean it)
And I might name call
(But I don't mean it)
I may pull some silly stunts
(Hey)
But that's just a front
(Hey, hey)
I don't mean it
(I don't mean it, I don't mean it)
Now I may holler at you
(When I'm hollerin' at you)
And I may tell you we're through
(I never mean it when I say we're through)
May give you looks that can kill
(Kill)
But it's not for real
(Real)
I don't mean it
(I don't mean it)

Now I might say you can walk
(I may say that you can walk but I don't)
And I might name call
(Girl I promise I don't mean it)
I may pull some silly stunts
(Silly stunts)
But that's just a front
(Just a front)
I don't mean it
(Thinkin' I'm cool but I'm a fool)
Now I may holler at you
(When I'm hollerin' at you)
And I may tell you we're through
(I never mean it when I say we're through)
May give you looks that can kill
(Kill)
But it's not for real
(Real)
I don't mean it
(I don't mean it)

Now I might say you can walk
(Girl I don't mean it, I don't mean it)
And I might name call
(I don't mean it, I don't mean it)
I may pull some silly stunts
(I don't mean it)
But that's just a front
(I don't mean it)
I don't mean it
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Now I may holler at you
And I may tell you we're through
May give you looks that can kill
But it's not for real
I don't mean it
