When U were mine, I gave U all of my money
Time after time U done me wrong
It's just like a train
U let all my friends come over and eat
And U were so strange
U didn't have the decency 2 change the sheets
Oh girl, when U were mine
I used 2 let U wear all my clothes
And U were so fine (So fine)
Maybe that's the reason that it hurt me so

I know that U're goin' with another guy
I don't care cuz I love U, baby, that's no lie
I love U more than I did when U were mine

When U were mine, U were kinda sorta my best friend
So I was blind (So blind)
I let U fool around
I never cared (Didn't care)
I never was the kind 2 make a fuss
When he was there sleepin' n between the 2 of us

I know that U're goin' with another guy
I don't care cuz I love U, baby, that's no lie
I love U more than I did when U were mine
Oh

When U were mine, U were all I ever wanted 2 do
Now I spend my time following him whenever he's with U

I know that U're goin' with another guy
I don't care cuz I love U, baby, that's no lie
I love U more than I did when U were mine
When U were mine, oh no
Love U, baby, love U, baby, when U were mine
