i can do bad all by myself lyrics – mary j blige

“i can do bad all by myself”

mmmmm
ohh ohh
ah yea
ah ah yea

[verse 1]
somebody told me once that pain is a game we all gotta play.
then why am i in overtime and sudden death every other day.
i know that for the good of life there’s a price we all gotta pay
but i’ll pay till i’m poor and i still don’t know what it is to have a good day, yeah

since everybody knows what it is that i need to do.
well do me a favor, let me worry bout me and you worry bout you.

[chorus:]
i don’t need no one to put me down,
i’m on the ground, can’t get no lower.
and i don’t need no one to hang around and make me frown just makes me look older.
and i don’t need no one to black my eye and tell me lies
don’t wanna cry over n*body else
no no no no i can do bad all by myself

[verse 2]
somebody told me once that running from the rain don’t make no sense.
i had my own dark cloud for awhile now, it goes where ever i’m going, yeah
they’re telling me the gr*ss just might be greener on the other side.
but i don’t wanna take a chance on dirt when i got gr*ss even though the gr*ss has died.

oh since everybody knows what it is that i need to do,
well do me a favor, let me worry bout me and you worry bout you

[chorus]

[bridge:]
don’t waste time feeling bad for me
i didn’t ask you for your sympathy
no i know god is watching over me
so i guess this is where i’m suppose to be
ohh yes

[chorus to the end]
