Oh, oh

I guess U know me well, I don't like winter
But I seem 2 get a kick out of doin' U cold
Oh what the hell, U always surrender
What's this strange relationship that we hold on 2?

Baby, I just can't stand 2 see U happy
More than that, I hate 2 see U sad
Honey, if U left me I just might do somethin' rash
What's this strange relationship... ship ship ship?

I came and took ur love, I took ur body
I took the self-respect U ever had
I took U 4 a ride and, baby, I'm sorry
The more U love me, sugar, the more it makes me mad

Cuz baby, I just can't stand 2 see U happy
More than that, I hate 2 see U sad (Hey)
Honey, if U left me I just might do somethin' rash
What's this strange relationship... ship ship ship?

Doo doo doo...
Oh yeah (Doo doo doo...)

Isn't it a shame this ain't a movie?
Then U could rewrite my every line
I'll take all the blame, yo baby, I'm sorry
But I didn't like the way U were so I had 2 make U mine

Baby, I just can't stand 2 see U happy
More than that, I hate 2 see U sad (Hey)
Honey, if U left me I just might do somethin' rash
What's this strange relationship... ship ship ship?

Shoo-b-doo, doo doo doo...
Doo doo doo...
Yeah (Doo doo doo...)
Mmm, my strange relationship (Doo doo doo...)
Can't live with cha, can't live without cha
What it's all about, do U know?
Whoa yeah

Don't U think we got some strange relationship?
I think U and I got a strange relationship
What's this strange relationship?
Yeah yeah {repeat}
