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
'll never understand
Uh-oh, here he comes now
So happy that he came
Hey, was it good, boy? (Ooh ooh)
Thoughts - some of 'em 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 call U on the phone
U act so unconcerned ( wanna)
wanna get U all alone (Ooh baby)
2 show U what learned
Won't give me the time of day
Won't give me some time
U won't give me anything
Cuz U think U'r 2 fine

Can't U C...
All want is a little time?
Been playin' with my toy so much
'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 gotta!
Gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about
U gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about {repeat}
U do it 2 much
U gotta stop, gotta, gotta stop messin' about
Ooh
Stop!
