I mean Usher is this what it come to, man?
This how we gon do it? I mean even grass grow baby
You know seeds become plants, boys become men
What we gon do? Lets lead the way

Wrapped around all girls like Pashminas
Whats my demeanor?
The grass is always greener on the other side
Then think about, cant give a ring up
I couldnt give a ***, how could I give a finger

Let alone half bath and closets
So claustrophobic, in fear of close objects
Now its sort of like two car garages
Its like two broads menagin
Youre the best mama

Is there any chance that you remember me
Being any more than just a horrible man?
And would you consider pullin this trigger
And taking a second shot at romance?

Oh baby I want the days when you were my girl
And I was your man
Know I took you for granted but it wasn't 'til now
I see how much I miss you

Girl, I'm sorry that I ran the streets acting like a damn fool
But for once here goes the truth

I can't be fake, I can't be phony
Acting all hard, that's for homies, that's lonely
I tried to flex but I confess that when you left

You took the very best thing
The best thing that ever happened to me
You took my best thing, the best thing that I ever seen
You took the best thing, the best thing that I ever had
And now all I feel is stress
'Cause when you left you took the very best

Remember Mimi or Vita, remember Isha or Eva
I ain't got em no more, hey, as for Naomi or Jenny
Got the same outcome as Gillette
Girl, I let em all go

Ooh, no more trickin and kissin miscellaneous chicks
Acting like a jerk, woman I been to church
And Ive talked to the bishop and he wanted me
To share this with ya, how much I miss you

I'm so sorry that I ran the streets acting like a damn fool
But for once here goes the truth

I can't be fake, I can't be phony
Acting all hard, that's for homies, that's lonely
I tried to flex but I confess that when you left

You took the very best thing
The best thing that ever happened to me
You took my best thing, the best thing that I ever seen
You took the best thing, the best thing that I ever had
And now all I feel is stress
Cause baby when you left you took the very best

Mama tried to tell me Hobie Hob just slow it down
You gon lose your best thing if you keep gettin round
Like partner need a partner, when youre old Ill hold you down
Ma, forever young, was forever none

Sorry Stacy, sorry Tanya, Millie-Ann and all of them
All of them was flirting time, it wasnt you, it was him
School me once, school me twice, three times, I was dumb
Now its so plain to see to me, I got the one
You're the best mama

I can't be fake, I can't be phony
Acting all hard that's for homies that's lonely
I tried to flex but I confess that when you left

You took the very best thing
The best thing that ever happened to me
You took my best thing, the best thing that I ever seen
You took the best thing, the best thing that I ever had
And now all I feel is stress
Cause baby when you left you took the very best
