(Usher Usher Usher)
Ooh! OoOOooh! Ooh! Papers
Ooh! OoOOooh! Ooh! Papers

Vrs 1:
I can't, get to work on time, can't believe the words to her I just said
But who the hell argue n fight like dogs at 6 in the morning?(in the mornin)
I know it's gonna' be some more sh** tonight mm oooh
Our pastor's callin, tellin me I done went too far in
I'm seen around town and my friends can't recognize me,
'Cuz I took a chance on love(love), it's like(like), I'm dyin(ooh dyin)

Chrs:
For you I gave my heart and turned my back against the world
'Cause you were my girl, girl, girl
I done damn near lost my mama, I done been through so much drama
I done turned into the man that I never thought I'd be.

I'm ready to sign them papers, papers, papers
I done took all I can take but u leave me no options girl
I can't deny how much I love you, I done gave up errthing I had to
As hard as it is I'm affraid I gotta say
I'm ready to sign them papers, papers, papers
I done took all I can take but u leave me no options girl

Ooh! OoOOooh! Ooh! Papers
Ooh! OoOOooh! Ooh! Papers

Vrs 2:
I'm losin my mind, can't figure out who's wrong or right
I know it's you I love, but then I also know it's you I don't like
You claim you hate who I was, but that's the reason you here now
You think I don't know what's up, but sweetheart that's what ruined us
I ain't afraid to say I got needs
But the only time you here for me is when the bottles poppin' and everything is sweet
But I I'm tired of sleeping in the other room spending them long nights
Trying to figure out what in the hell in my heart I ain't do right. (Oooh for u)

For you I gave my heart and turned my back against the world(back against the world)
'Cause you were my girl, girl(girl), girl,
I done damn near lost my mama(mama), I done been through so much drama(drama)
I done turned into the man that I never thought I'd be.(never thought I would be)

I'm ready to sign them papers(papers), papers(paii), papers(paai ooh oh oh oh)
(I done took) all I can take but u leave me no options girl
I can't deny how much I love you(know that I love u), I done gave up errthing I had to
(Anything I had to) as hard as it is I'm affraid I gotta say(I'm affraid I gotta say)
I'm ready to sign them papers(papers), papers(paii), papers(girl I took all I could take)
(I done took) all I can take but u leave me no options girl

Ohoh! OoOOooh! Oooooh yea! Papers
Ooh! OoOOooh! Ooh! Papers

Ready Ready Ready Ready
All my fellas up in here, if u had enough and u're ready to sign say
Ready Ready Ready Ready(I'm ready, yes I am)
All my ladies if u sick and tired, and u're, ready to sign, say
Ready Ready Ready Ready(ooh)
I can't keep livin this life, I'm feena leave it for the last time I'm
Ready Ready Ready Ready

I done damn near lost my mama, I done been through so much drama
I done turned into the man I never thought I'd be.

I'm ready to sign them papers, papers, papers
I done took all I can take but u leave me no options girl
I can't deny how much I love you, I done gave up errthing I had to
As hard as it is I'm affraid I gotta say
I'm ready to sign them papers, papers, papers
I done took all I can take but u leave me no options girl
