Hey, hey hold up a minute
Let me stop up here and use this pay
Phone real quick
Hey, hey Toni, it's me, I was calling
You know
Just calling to let you know, don't
Wait up for me tonight
I mean I just got a lotta things on my
Mind I gotta think about, you know
Just umm, I'll be over Brain's house,
You know
It's not you, it's me, you know it's
Really me, you know
I mean basically, I just think I'm gonna
Need som space

Why are you calling me on the phone
Why you not at home on time
You say you're staying over at your friends
''cause you got a lot on your mind
Now you're swearing up and down that it ain't me
Still you say that things have changed
So tell me what exactly does it mean
When you say you need your space

Just don't make no excuses, no no
Why you gotta lie to me
Just be a man about it
Baby, you don't gotta lie to me, no
Just be a man about it
If you wanna leave go on
Just be a man about it
Come and grab your things and go on
Right now
Just be a man about it

I Mean, you gotta understand I love
You, you know what I'm saying
And I love you enough to say that I
Think,
I think you deserve somebody better
Than me, you know
And Right now, I can't give you what
You need, you know

I mean, I wanna love you, and I'm gonna
Love you, one day but, you know
I mean, you just gotta understand
Where I'm coming from

You say right now that you're not
What I'm looking for
And what you really need is time to grow
You're promising that one day you may
Come around
And I'm supposed to let that go
But where the hell do you get off
Telling me your mama said
I'm not what you need
Tell you what, since she knows it all
Then that's where you need to be

Just don't make no excuses, no no
Why you gotta lie to me
Just be a man about it
Baby, you ain't gotta lie to me, no
Just be a man about it
If you wanna leave go on
Just be a man about it
Come and grab your things and go on
Right now
Just be a man about it

Can you tell me how you can
Say you're love and then
Treat me so bad
Boy, you know it just ain't right
I cannot believe the way you handled things
You wouldn't lie......
If you were a man...

Just be a man about it
(just be a man about it baby)
Just be a man about it
(if you wanna go, go on and leave now)
Just be a man about it
(you aint got stay just leave me alone)
Just be a man about it
(If you wanna go pack your things and leave now)
Just be a man about it
(You don't wanna stay, I don't wanna hear no more lying)
Just be a man about it
