u should’ve known betta lyrics – monica

i didn’t ask to go with you to mexico
i really didn’t need the shopping spree
in la or melrose, boy if you didn’t know it, well, now you know,
i didn’t need the furs or the jewelry
because material things they don’t mean much to me
and ever since you’ve been gone
i have been holding us down on my own

i never ever cheated
i never ever lied
so you can stop asking, asking me why
why i never left you, and why i kept it real
and why i’m still with you

you should’ve known better than to think i would leave
you should’ve known better than to doubt me
it don’t matter if you’re up, matter if you’re down
either way i’m gonna be around
you should’ve known that i would stay by your side
you should’ve known your girl was gonna ride or die
and it just don’t matter if ya rich or poor
out or in doing 5 to10
you should’ve known better

what makes you think that i would forget about you
think about it who comes to see ya
every sat*rday and monday i was on that receiver
it’s me your girl your life your world
my family and friends they just don’t understand
they say i should leave you lone
but i say that they all should just leave us ‘lone
don’t u get it


[chorus x2]
