Verse 1
(Michelle)
If I don't pick up the phone like I used to (for you)
Don't you take it personal
(Kelly)
If I don't do all the things that I used to do (to you)
I ain't mad at you
(Beyonce)
If you get to feeling stressed up in your chest thinking
That you're about to lose (baby, it's true)

And If you're losing out on sleep, home worryin' about me
That's how it be

(Chorus)
If you don't know
Now you know you're gonna miss (my love)
And I aint stressin' 'bout a doggone thing
'Cause I was true when I gave you (my love)
My love
If you search you will never find another love like (my love)
You're gonna miss me
I ain't got time while you sit around and play with my (my love)
Myyyyy love

Verse 2
(Michelle)
If you think I caught a feelin' when I heard about that other chick (noooo)
I already knew about it
(Kelly)
I just needed time just to clear my mind and ask myself
Why I didnt handle him?
(Beyonce)
If you would've taken care of home instead of leavin' me alone
I still would be right there with you
Taking care of you, steady loving you
Like I used to do
Ooooooo

(Chorus)
If you don't know
Now you know you're gonna miss (my love)
And I ain't stressin' 'bout a doggone thing
'Cause I was true when I gave you my love (my love)
If you search you will never find another love like my love
You're gonna miss me
I ain't got time while you sit around and play with my
Myyyyy love

(Bridge)
There was once a time I blame myself for what was wrong
(Michelle)
I can see so clearly now because you are gone

Thats how I spent all my time when you weren't home

(Beyonce)
Playin' around with them raggedy heifers
There'll be no more stressin', no more cryin', no more tryin'
I would rather be alone (I'd rather be all by myself, yeah)
'Cause this valuable heart of mine was yours until I realized
Finally opened my eyes

(Kelly)
You see ladies, I know I knew better
What was I thinking?
He gone miss me when Im gone

(Chorus)
If you don't know
Now you know you're gonna miss (my love)
And I aint stressin' 'bout a doggone thing
'Cause I was true when I gave you my love (my love)
If you search you will never find another love like (my love)
You're gonna miss me
I ain't got time while you sit around and play with my love
