When you feel it in your body
You found somebody who
Makes you change your ways
Like hangin' wit' your crew

Said you act like you ready
But you don't really know
And everything in your past
You wanna let it go

I been there, done it, humped around, hah
After all that, this is what I found
Nobody wants to be alone
If you're touched by the words in this song
Then maybe

U got it, u got it bad when you're on the phone
Hang up and you call right back
U got it, u got it bad if you miss a day without your friend
Your whole life's off track

You know, u got it bad when you stuck in the house
You don't wanna have fun 'cos all you think about
U got it bad when you're out with someone
But you keep on thinkin' 'bout somebody else
U got it bad

When you say that you love 'em
And you really know everything
That used to matter don't matter no more
Like my money, all my cars

You can have it all and
Flowers, cards and candy, I do it just 'cos
I said, I'm fortunate to have you girl
I want you to know, I really adore you

All my people that know what's goin' on
Look at your mate help me sing my song
Tell her I'm your man
You're my girl

I'm gonna tell it to the whole wide world
Ladies, say I'm your girl
You're my man
Promise to love you the best I can

See I've been there, done it, humped around
After all that, this is what I found
Every one of y'all are just like me
It's too bad that you can't see that u got it bad

U got it, u got it bad when you're on the phone
Hang up and you call right back
U got it, u got it bad if you miss a day without your friend
Your whole life's off track

You know, u got it bad when you stuck in the house
You don't wanna have fun 'cos all you think about
U got it bad when you're out with someone
But you keep on thinkin' 'bout somebody else
U got it bad

U got it, u got it bad when you're on the phone
Hang up and you call right back
U got it, u got it bad if you miss a day without your friend
Your whole life's off track

You know, u got it bad when you stuck in the house
You don't wanna have fun 'cos all you think about
U got it bad when you're out with someone
But you keep on thinkin' 'bout somebody else
