What do you think of M&TD's answer song? We LOVE it! Here's the full lyrics to Marina's reponse to Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend":

When I was your girl, you'd always let me go
I took you places you ain't been before
Said, "Take a chance or you'll never know"
'Cause you had money in your hands that you had to blow


Boyfriend, boyfriend, you could be my boyfriend
Could have been my boy 'til the world ends
I'd like to be everything you want
Hey, boy, let me talk to you

When I was your girlfriend, you'd always let me go
You kept me on your arm, boy, so you weren't left alone
You could have been a better man anytime you want
But when I was your girlfriend, I always felt alone
I always felt alone

You tell me what you like, tell me what you don't
You were my life, you went across the globe
I don't like to fight, you already know
But you, you made me bright like the winter snow

Boyfriend, boyfriend, you could be my boyfriend
Could have been my boy 'til the world ends
I'd like to be everything you want
Hey, boy, let me talk to you

'Cause when I was your girlfriend, you'd always let me go
You kept me on your arm, boy, so you weren't left alone
You could have been a better man anytime you want
But when I was your girlfriend, I always felt alone
I always felt alone
Always felt alone

I gave you a chance
You're all I needed, boy
Spend a month with you, boy, and never calling me your girlfriend
If you were my man, I'd never leave you, boy
But you won't ever love or treat me right

I'd like

When I was your girlfriend, you'd always let me go
You kept me on your arm, boy, so you weren't left alone
You could have been a better man anytime you want
But when I was your girlfriend, I always felt alone

When I was your girlfriend, you'd always let me go
You kept me on your arm, boy, so you weren't alone
You could have been a better man anytime you want
But when I was your girlfriend, I always felt alone
