Baby, can I talk to you for a minute?
Listen

Boy you had me fooled, I can't believe you
'Cause you never done anything that I asked of you
Always talking like I just can't do right
Blaming me for everything and that just ain't right

'Cause I can't do this alone, alone
(I don't know what to do, I'm trying to stay with you)
It's not all about you
Boy, I can't do this alone, alone
(You're making this harder, boy I'm about to leave ya)
('Cause I can't do this alone)
Alone, alone, alone

And I gave you everything I had, yeah
And I never said nothing, did everything for you
What did you do? Nothing!
Then you got the nerve to wanna run your mouth
Like I ain't never held you down
Baby, what did I do to deserve this?

'Cause I put you on a shelf, girl, I need help
'Cause I can't do this alone, baby

'Cause I can't do this alone, alone
(I don't know what to do, I'm trying to stay with you)
It's not all about you
Girl, I can't do this alone, alone
(You're making this harder, girl I'm about to leave ya)
(I can't do this alone)
Alone, alone, alone

And I tried to work this out but boy, you're changing now
What do I do? I'm so confused, baby
And I tried to work this out but girl, you're changing now
What do I do? I'm so confused

'Cause I can't do this alone, alone
It's not all about you
I can't do this alone, alone
Alone, alone

'Cause I can't do this alone, alone
It's not all about you
Boy, I can't do this alone, alone
Alone, alone, alone

I don't know what to do
'Cause boy I'm so tired of you
Said I don't know what to do
Girl, I'm so tired of you

Do what you gotta do 'cause I

'Cause I can't do this alone, alone
It's not all about you
Boy, I can't do this alone, alone
Alone, alone, alone

Said, I can't do this alone
Said, I can't do this alone
Said, I tried everything, I done everything
Oh, what we gonna do baby?
