Yeah, whatcha y'all wanna do?
At you one more time, ya know what I mean?
But this time, you ain't gonna be makin' no more promises

Don't make promises that you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean
Don't make promises that you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean

I gave you the world and you tried to give it back
Tell me what is goin' on
There was nothing wrong with you lovin' me right back
Then I turned around and you're gone

You told me that your love was real and now
I believed you, I believed you, oh baby
Now I'm convinced that we don't feel the same
'Cause you're so far away and I miss my baby so no

Don't make promises that you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean
Don't make promises that you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean

There's no other girl who I'd let take advantage
Of all my time and energy
You claimed, you love me girl then you creep behind my back
I thought we were meant to be

You told me that your love was real and now
An' I believed you, I believed you
Now I'm convinced that we don't feel the same
'Cause you're so far away and I miss my baby so, come on, baby

Don't make promises that you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean
Don't make promises that you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean

Yo, yo, you got me heated but I stay undefeated
'Cause I can't take the bull what, whatcha gon do
What I brings it on forget the clones it's all 'bout me
Now I'm showing off, getting off, blowing, freaking minds off

You're pretty don't make me flip 'cause you're slippin'
Intermission I'm ever ready serving whippings
It's like, oh no, what you lying bout D.L. is all out
You can't get with it so quit you're il-legit

No doubt bout it word is bond
I'm lethal can't nothing get past me but weak skon
I remain jiggy with the illiest flow
So niggas wise up and act like you know

You tried to play me Shelene ain't havin' it, Tyrese ain't havin' it
So sing your song make 'em never forget
Don't promise if you can't deliver, how you figure
Now I'm steaming, I got you tripping in your scheme what?

Don't make promises that you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean
Don't make promises that you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean

Don't make promises that you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean
Don't make promises that you cannot keep
Don't say things that you don't really mean
