Well, hello
It's about time U got home
No baby, don't try that tail waggin' routine on me
want 2 know where U been
Now speak
That's right, get 2 talkin'
Or get 2 walkin'
Yeah, woo
Am supposed 2 believe that?
Huh

Lipstick on ur shirt, baby
& perfume N ur bed
U bet on a new love, baby
& U lost my love instead
If take U back, U got 2 promise

Promise 2 B true (Yeah)
Promise 2 always B true (U got 2 promise)
Promise 2 B true (Oh yeah)
Promise 2 always B true

Phone numbers N ur suit jacket
2 many nights with the boys
Cuz U'r exactly like a spoiled little baby on Christmas
U wanted 2 many toys
Oh baby, so wrong but will U promise?

Promise 2 B true (Oh)
Promise 2 always B true (U got 2 promise)
Promise 2 B true
Promise 2 always B true (Listen 2 me now)

Woo, woo
Promise 2 B true
Oh
Do do do do
Say it, say it, say it!
C'mon, say it
Promise this time 2 B true
C'mon, say it
Oh yeah, 'd B lost without ur kiss
But if U mess up again
Honey, U ain't gon' have no lips 2 kiss with
Oh (Whoo)

got plenty plenty lovin' 4 U, baby
But U got 2 rearrange
can find it N my heart 2 4give U, baby
Baby, can U really... change? (Yes will)

But U got 2 promise 2 B true (U got 2 promise)
Promise 2 always B true (Promise 2 B true)
Promise 2 B true
Promise 2 always B true (Baby... yeah)
U know U got all my money (U got my money...)
'll give it 2 U everytime (Woo)
If U can't support me 1 more time again
(1 more time...)
U R still like that child on Christmas

Promise 2 B true (Yeah... whoo)
Promise 2 always B true (Promise 2 B true)
Promise 2 B true
Promise 2 always B true (Promise 2 B...) (Do it...)
Promise 2 B true (U got 2 promise 2 B true)
Promise 2 always B true (Do it...)
Promise 2 B true (U got 2 promise 2 B true)
Promise 2 always B true (Yeah)
Baby, if take U back
Baby, if take U back, U got 2 promise (Yes)
From the bottom of ur stinky old-crusted
Old no-good heart (Yes)
U got 2 promise (Promise? Let's C) (Yeah)
2 B true, true, true
