Boy you make it hard, you make it hard to leave
You make it hard
(You're no good for me)
Every day, every night you were out with your boys getting high
While I worked hard to pay the rent
And my girls said I should lose you
But I stuck with you

'Cos you promised to change
What I gave you took
Nothing came in return
But I, I kept on giving, baby

'Cos the sex was so good
And your talk was so smooth
That I, I guess I bought it, baby

Now I finally see, you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
You're down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

I'm thinking ooh-ooh-ooh and aah-aah-aah
You know I really loved you boy
Ooh-ooh-ooh and aah-aah-aah
What a waste of a man so bye-ye-ye

When I found out about all your fooling around
Well I, I had to cry about it
When you said you're sorry and you loved me only
I should have left you right there

Now I finally see, you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
You're down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

I'm thinking ooh-ooh-ooh and aah-aah-aah
You know I really loved you boy
Ooh-ooh-ooh and aah-aah-aah
What a waste of a man so bye-ye-ye

Ooh-ooh-ooh and aah-aah-aah
Give me back my heart
Give me back my sight
Ooh-ooh-ooh and aah-aah-aah
What a waste of a woman so bye-ye-ye

Now I finally see, you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
You're down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

Ooh-ooh-ooh and aah-aah-aah
Give me back my heart
Give me back my sight
Ooh-ooh-ooh and aah-aah-aah
What a waste of a woman so bye-ye-ye

Ooh-ooh-ooh and aah-aah-aah
Give me back my heart
Give me back my sight
Ooh-ooh-ooh and aah-aah-aah
