Listen up ma, I got something to tell you, yea
Gotta play the game
Play the game strictly for the ladies

There's no kisses from you, when I'm leaving in the morning
There's no roses for you, when I know I've hurt your feelings
Don't know what happened to us, girl I never saw it coming
How did love go downhill? I think I know what cheating men feel

I hit the bar, bought a drink, sip it slow just to think
Then a star with a big Gucci
She said it looks like you need a friend
The lonely girl is knocking let me in
We can leave no delay take my mind off this pain
To go to bed in the marriot suite
Tell wifey that I might be working late
Hope I never have to say I lied

To keep my sex, to keep my house
To still be here, to work things out
To find some way babe to make it up to you
That's why I lied
To keep your hug, to keep your kiss
To still be here, to raise our kids
To keep my ring babe, I couldn't tell the truth
That's why I lied

I'm so nervous these days, got a feeling she'll be calling
I know hurt is on the way, when I dream of angels falling
There's no perfect way to say, how my vows to you were broken
And who is that on the phone, let me explain before you go

I hit the bar, bought a drink, sip it slow just to think
Then a star with a big Gucci
She said it looks like you need a friend
The lonely girl was knocking, I let her in
We left, no delay took my mind off the pain
To go to bed in the marriot suite
I know I said that I was working late
But you found out today, I lied

To keep my sex, to keep my house
To still be here, to work things out
To find some way baby to make it up to you
That's why I lied
To keep your hug, to keep your kiss
To still be here, to raise our kids
To keep my ring baby, I couldn't tell the truth
That's why I lied

From the moment I heard you say you're leaving
It was the worse, I thought could happen
I'm already missing your loving, your laughter, the morning after
It's not a home without you here
I swear I've learnt my lesson baby

To keep my sex, to keep my house
To still be here, to work things out
To find some way babe to make it up to you
That's why I lied
To keep your hug, to keep your kiss
To still be here, to raise our kids
To keep my ring babe, I couldn't tell the truth
That's why I lied

To keep my sex, to keep my house
To still be here, to work things out
To find some way babe to make it up to you
That's why I lied
To keep your hug, to keep your kiss
To still be here, to raise our kids
To keep my ring babe, I couldn't tell the truth
That's why I lied

Strictly for the ladies, my black sisters
Strictly for the ladies, you know Latinas
Yeah, strictly for the ladies, play boy bunnies and all
Here now, strictly for the ladies, come on
