[Mary:]
Baby, can I talk to you for a minute?
Ohhh...
Ohh...

[Verse 1: (Mary)]
Boy, you had me fooled.
I can't believe you.
Cuz' you never done anything that I asked of you.
Always talking like I just can't do right.
Blaming me for everything and that just ain't right.
Cuz I...

[Chorus: (Mary)]
Cuz' I can't do this alone. (I don't know what to do.)
Alone.(I'm tryna stay with you.)
It's not all about you. (Ohhh)
Boy, I can't do this alone. (You're making this harder.)
Alone. (Boy, I'm bout to leave ya)
(Cuz I can't do this alone)
Alone...
Alone...
Alone.

[Verse 2: (Dave)]
And I gave you everything I had.
Yeah.
And I never said nothing.
Did everything for you.
What did you do?
Nothing.
Then you got the nerve to wanna run your mouth.
Like I ain't never held you down.
Baby, what did I do to deserve this?
Cuz' I put you on a shelf.
