Yo, Wyclef, It's time that I confess to all the girls
To all the girls I loved before
To all the girls I cheated on before
To all the girls I loved before

To all the girls I cheated on before
I tip my hat like Willie Nelson
You got pressure, take a sip of this Molson
Here's what happened, it wasn't my intentions
To fall into seduction while playing a temptation
I thought I had it figured out, but games don't last
The hourglass ran out, I got sprayed with the tear gas

Big men don't cry, hold my feelings inside
Stress brings me [Incomprehensible]? I gotta hold my pride
When I see you with another guy, jealous thoughts of homicide
Call me selfish when I say Abraham has many wives
You say, "This is the 90's, either it's gonna be me or her"
I found myself in a blur
Lookin' into the clouds thinkin' out loud
"I'm in love with two women, who is it gonna be now?"

To all the girls I cheated on before, it's a new year
I got a new change of gear, I swear
I can see clear now the clouds disappeared
You forgive but never forget, so the past reappears

To all the girls I cheated on before, it's a new year
I got a new change of gear, I swear
I can see clear now the clouds disappeared
You forgive, but you still think that I'm a hoe

The second verse is gonna hurt, based on a true life story
I got married at 24 in New Jersey
You know the feelings start, nature take it's course
Two years later 'Clef gets a divorce
When I had the cold feet, I shouldn't have walked the altar
With Dionne Warwick, she couldn't predict my future

Went with my feelings even though it wasn't right
Creepin' with my secret lover in the middle of the night
Back home, break of dawn, dinner's at the table
'Thin line between love and hate' is on cable
I'm lookin' at myself thinkin' out loud
"I'm in love with two women, who is it gonna be now?"

To all the girls I cheated on before, it's a new year
I got a new change of gear, I swear
I can see clear now the clouds disappeared
You forgive but never forget, so the past reappears

To all the girls I cheated on before, it's a new year
I got a new change of gear, I swear
I can see clear now the clouds disappeared
You forgive, but you still think that I'm a hoe

Hotel, motel, Holiday Inn
And if your girl acts up at the carnival
And then you take her friend

Hotel, motel, a Holiday Inn, yo
And if your girl acts up at the carnival
And then you snatch her friend

Break it down right here
One love, you're lucky to have one love
It sounds bugged, drinking wine from the same jug
One heart, one mind, one soul
She ain't a gold digger, she don't care about your bank-roll
Keep your money, she make her own cheddar
All she want from me is respect like Aretha
Cooked me lasagna, stayed in for the winter
Chilled to the summer, now I'm gone 'til November

Have you seen her? I think I did
But what I did wrong was take a love for granted
'Cause first comes trust, don't rush into lust
Easier said than done, I lust and I must
Passion is a must, but then we start to cuss
We was just makin' love, now we tearing up each other's guts
Like Species, she called me an animal
So feel the tongue of the warm-blooded mammal

To all the girls I cheated on before, it's a new year
I got a new change of gear, I swear
I can see clear now the clouds disappeared
You forgive but never forget, so the past reappears

To all the girls I cheated on before, it's a new year
I got a new change of gear, I swear
I can see clear now the clouds disappeared
You forgive, but you still think that I'm a hoe

I'm not a hoe
I'm not a hoe
I'm not a hoe

I'm not a hoe
I'm not a hoe
I'm not a hoe

Is it okay if I play my guitar right about now, is it alright?
Alright, alright
People in the back, is it okay if I play my guitar right about now?
Alright, alright, alright, alright
People on the side, is it okay if I play my guitar right about now?
