New Edition – That's Why I Lied lyrics

(Ronnie)
Listen up ma, I got something to tell you, yea

(Ralph)
Gotta play the game

(Ronnie)
Strictly for the ladies

Verse 1
(Ralph)
There's so kisses from you, when I leaving in the morning
There's no roses for you, when I know I've hurt your feelings
Don't know what happen to us, girl I never saw it coming
How did love go downhill?
I think I know what cheatin men feel

[Hook:]
I hit the bar bought a drink slip it slow just to think
Then a star with a big Gucci
She said it looks like you need a friend
The lonely girl is knocking let me in
We can leave no delay take my mind off this pain
To go to bed in the Marriot Suite
Tell wifey that I might be working late
Or hope I never have to say I lied

[Chorus:]
To keep my s**, to keep my house (I'm sorry girl)
To still be here to work things out
To find some way babe to make it up to you
That's why I lied
To keep your hug, to keep your kiss
To still be here to raise our kids
To keep my ring babe I couldn't tell the truth
That's why I lied

Verse 2
So nervous these days got a feeling she'll be calling
I know hurt is on the way when I dream of angels fallen
There's no perfect way to say how my vows to you were broken
Who is that on the phone let me explain before go

[Hook:]
I hit the bar bought a drink slip it slow just to think
Then a star with a big Gucci
She said it looks like you need a friend
The lonely girl was knocking I let her in
We leave with no delay take my mind off this pain
To go to bed in the Marriot Suite
I know I said that I was working late
But you found out today I lied

[Chorus:]

From the moment I heard you say you're leavin (Don't go)
It was the worse I thought could happen (for sure)
I'm already missing your lovin your laughter the morning after
It's not a home without you here
I swear I learn my lesson baby

[Chorus:] (2x)

(Ronnie)
Strictly for the ladies, my black sistas
Strictly for the ladies, Latinas
Strictly for the ladies, play boy bunnies and all
Strictly for the ladies, come on
