She Got To You Lyrics

by Esperanza Spalding

If I had a penny
For every time I caught you
Undressing me with your eyes
I'd be a rich one and then
I could prove all my senses
Were real all along
You wanted me too

Though now you laugh
And call me a fool
I know you wanted me too
Before she got to you

If I could remember
All the things you used to say
When we were left alone
I'd have a book of sonnets
So inspired
All the muses would cringe
At your denial
At how you wanted me too

Though now you laugh
And call me a fool
I know you wanted me too
Before she got to you

Before she got to you
I would say
That we were something special
To behold
But now it's over, all over
Before she came barging through
We were prime
To make the kind of love
As scarce as four leaf clover
Now, I'm a bit confused
Cos what I felt
I thought was true
Did she barge in
And steal your heart away?
Or did you know
From the first day
I was just someone to play?
If so, damn that's cold

Before she got to you
I would say
That we were something special
To behold
But now it's over, all over
Before she came barging through
We were prime
To make the kind of love
As scarce as four leaf clover
If I could understand
What you have found in her
More than you
Could have had with me
I'd finally understand a mind
As twisted as yours
Must be for you to go
Just when you wanted me too

Though now you laugh
And call me a fool
I know you wanted me too
What kind of spell
Has she put on you?
I know you wanted me too
Before she got to you
