Sittin' outside ur door about 2 break down
4th time this week somebody's come around
Who's it gonna b 2night?
Who's the lucky man?
Where U get the attitude I'll never understand
Uh-oh, here he comes now
So happy that he came
Hey, was it good, boy?
Ooh ooh, thoughts so over lame

What goes on inside ur head that makes U want 2 take them all 2 bed?
Gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about
U know U gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about
Ow!
Oh oh yeah

When I call U on the phone U act so unconcerned
I wanna get U all alone, ooh baby, 2 show U what I learned
U won't give me the time of day
U won't give me some time
U won't give me anything
Girl, U think U're 2 fine

Can't U see all I want is a little time?
I've been playin' with my toy so much I'm gonna go blind
Gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about
U gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about
Ooh
Ow!
Oh oh yeah

U got 2!
Gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about
U gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about
U gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about
U do it 2 much
U gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about
Ooh
Stop!
