Yeah.. Whatchyall wanna do?..
At you one more time know what I mean?
But this time, you aint gonna be makin
No more promises

Don't make promises
That you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean
Don't make promises (To me)
That you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean

I gave you the world
And you tried to give it back
Tell me what is going on
There was nothing wrong
With you lovin' me right back
Then I turned around and you're gone

You told me that your love was real
And I and I believed you I believed you
Now I'm convinced that we don't feel the same
Cause you're so far away, and I miss my baby so..

Don't make promises (to me)
That you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean
Don't make promises (oh no)
That you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean

There's no other girl
Who I'd let take advantage
Of all my time and energy
You claimed you loved me girl
Then you creep behind my back
I thought we were meant to be

You told me that your love was real and now
And I believed you, I believed you
Now I'm convinced that we don't feel the same
And you're so far away, and I miss my baby so..

Don't make promises
That you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean

[Rap]
Yo yo you got me heated
But I stay undefeated cause I
Can't take the bull what what cha gon do
What I brings it on
Forget the clones it's all bout me
Now I'm showing off getting off
Blowing freaking minds off
You're pretty don't make me flip 'cause you're slippin'
Intermission I'm ever ready serving whippings
It's like - oh no what you lying bout D.L. - is all out
You can't get with it so quit
You're illigit no doubt bout it word is bond
I'm lethal can't nothing get past me but weak skon
I remain jiggy with the illiest flow
So niggas wise up and act like you know
You tried to play me Shelene ain't havin it
Tyrese aint havin it
So sing your song make em never forget
Don't promise if you can't deliver
How you figure
Now i'm steaming I got you tripping
In your scheme- what

[Chorus fade out..]
