never thought that U would B the 1
After all the things that we've been thru
U gave ur body 2 another N the name of fun
hope U had some, baby
If not - boo hoo

It's so sad but hate U
Like a day without sunshine
It's so bad but hate U
Cuz U'r all that's ever on my mind
Honey, hate U
Now every day would B a waste of time
Cuz hate U

never thought that could feel this way
2 fall N love was a table reserved 4 fools
Say U'r sorry if U wanna but it's all N vain
'm out the door, sweet baby
That's right - we're thru

It's so sad but hate U
Like a day without sunshine
It's so bad but hate U
Cuz U'r all that's ever on my mind
Honey, hate U
Now every day would B a waste of time
Cuz hate U

This court is now N session
Will the defendant please rise?
State ur name 4 the court
Nevermind (Billy Jack Bitch)
U'r being charged with 1 2 many counts
Of heartbreaking N the 1st degree
don't give a damn about the others
My main concern is U & me

Ur Honor, may call 2 the stand
My 1 & only witness?
A girl that knows damn well
She didn't have no damn business
know what U did, how U did it
& uh... who U did it with
So U might as well plead guilty
Cuz U sure can't plead the 5th
Now raise ur right hand
Do U swear 2 tell the whole truth
Not the half truth like U used 2
So help U God?
Nod ur head 1 time if U hear me
If U don't, 'll have 2 use the rod
Anything 2 make U C that uh...
U'r gonna miss me
Yeah, U'r gonna miss me
Uh uh uh, ow!

If it please the court
'd like 2 have the defendant
Place her hands behind her back
So can tie her up tight
& get n2 the act
The act of showing her how good it used 2 B
want it 2 B so good
She falls back N love with me
Uh
Close ur eyes
'm gonna cover ur ass with this sheet
& want U 2 pump ur hips like U used 2
&, baby, U better stay on the beat

Did U do 2 ur other man
The same things that U did 2 me?
Right now hate U so much
wanna make love until U C
That it's killin' me, baby
2 B without U
Cuz all ever wanted 2 do
Was 2 B with U!
Ow
hate U becuz love U
But can't love U becuz hate U
Becuz love U (Ooh...)
love U, baby
love U {repeat}
love U cuz U'r all that's ever on my mind
hate U becuz love U
