Da-da-da-day, da-da-da-da-day-ay, Da-da-da-day, da-da-da-da-day-ay
Da-da-da-day, da-da-da-da-day-ay

If the shoe fits I want you to wear it, and wear it good, ah-ah, ah-ah-yeah, ah-ah-hah

Talkin' 'bout them times when I was by myse-e-elf, I was always lookin' for somebody else
But as time went on, I had a talk with my mi-i-ind, friends like you and you I gotta leave behind

You ca-all me your friend, but you only want my gifts
And I'll never see you if I had no loot, I'll never see them
I'm just glad I know the truth and I'm payin' my own bills and I'll never ever depe-end on you

Friends and enemies around me every day, I can't believe half the things they say
Takin' me for granted givin' no credit at all, I'll just keep bouncin' like a bouncin' ball
Everybody seems to disappear on me-ee, can't trust no one as far as I can see
If I could be that fly that's on the wa-a-all, listenin' to my friends talk about it all

You ca-all me your friend but you only want my gifts
And I'll never see you if I had no loot, I'll never see them
I'm just glad I know the truth and I'm payin' my own bills
And I'll never ever depend on you, some soul you are

I don't mean to step on nobody's foot, but ah -

When I need somebody, there's nobody to ca-a-all
When they need me, my phone rings off the wall
But these are my friends and that's-a what they say-ay-ay
Constantly takin' from me every day, you say

You ca-all me your friend but you only want my gifts
And I'll never see you if I had no loot, I'll never see them
I'm just glad I know the truth and I'm payin' my own bills
And I'll never ever depe-end on you, some soul you are

Da-da-dah-da-dee, da-da-dah-da-dee, da-da-dah-da-dee-ee-ee-ee
I don't want to step on nobody's foot, but ah -
Da-da-da-day, da-da-da-da-day-ay, Da-da-da-day, da-da-da-da-day-ay
Da-da-da-day, da-da-da-da-day-ay, Da-da-da-day, da-da-da-da-day-ay

You ca-all me your friend but you only want my gifts
And I'll never see you if I had no loot, I'll never see them
I'm just glad I know the truth and I'm payin' my own bills
And I'll never ever depe-end on you

You ca-all me your friend but you only want my gifts and I'll never see you if I had no loot
I'm just glad I know the truth and I'm payin' my own bills and I'll never ever depe-end on you
I'm startin to believe what it feels like

You ca-all me your friend but you only want my gifts and I'll never see you if I had no loot
I'm just glad I know the truth and I'm payin' my own bills and I'll never ever depe-end on you
