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

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

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

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

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

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