"Two Wrongs" as written by Jerry Duplessis, Dennis Taylor, Peter Joyner, Jack C Hill, Norman Beaver, Howard Thompson, Edward K Archer and Wyclef Jean....
I'm just sittin' here playin' the guitar

City High-i-i
Claudette and 'Clef

Excuse me if you see me screamin'
But deep in my mind
I'm only dreamin'
'Cuz if I wake girl and you're
Not by my side
I feel like half of me
Is no longer alive
So please, shorty
Before you walk out that door, boopy
Would you listen to my song

If only, I'd give you one last chance (One last chance)
With the devil you can no longer dance
You've got to be faithful
So we can be fruitful
Build a family and follow God's destiny
So just before I run to the block, Papi
I might listen to your song

Ooh, before you walk out that door
Listen

They say two wrongs don't make it right
(Don't make it right)
So if I'm wrong I ain't tryin' to fight
I'm tryin' to have some dinner with some candlelight
Lay up in the bed and make love all night
(So papi I won't leave baby I'll just stay)
(But promise me that you'll do the same)
Girl I'ma love you like I never loved you
(Touch me like you never touched me)
Girl if you give me the chance
Girl I'm gonna show you

Now baby, understand
That I forgive you
But I ain't gonna forget
That you brought me regret

Baby, baby, baby, baby
But I have grown
From a thug to a man
Built my castle with bricks
And no longer with sand

And just, before I run to the block, baby
I might listen to your song

Ooh, before you walk out that door
Listen

They say two wrongs don't make it right
(Don't make it right)
So if I'm wrong I ain't tryin' to fight
I'm tryin' to have some dinner with some candlelight
Lay up in the bed and make love all night
(So papi I won't leave baby I'll just stay)
(But promise me that you'll do the same)
Girl I'ma love you like I never loved you
(Touch me like you never touched me)
Girl if you give me the chance
Girl I'm gonna show you

I'm so used to the pain that I
Can't see the sunshine no more
I'm so used to the pain that the
Love sickness feels like the cure

But if only you gave me
The keys to your soul and let me in
I'm gonna love you over
(Over)
And over (over) again
Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea

They say two wrongs don't make it right
(Don't make it right)
So if I'm wrong I ain't tryin' to fight
I'm tryin' to have some dinner with some candlelight
Lay up in the bed and make love all night
(So papi I won't leave baby I'll just stay)
(But promise me that you'll do the same)
Girl I'ma love you like I never loved you
(Touch me like you never touched me)
Girl if you give me the chance
Girl I'm gonna show you

I ain't gonna stand on the block no more
I'm gonna come home early girl, I promise

    General Commentthis song is so tight. it's my favorite one. i love claudette, but wyclef is a'ight. this song goes deep. the music video was nice. i like the guitar thing. plus she calls him "papi". if a song has "papi" in it , it ain't half bad.

    General CommentWylcef is super talented...he plays like every instrument ever made, and writes lyrics that are sometimes so deep!
    The meaning to these lyrics is obvious.

    My favorite lyrics are the first 2 lines of the song and also the lyrics "grown from a thug to a man/I build my castle with bricks/and no longer with sand" total signs of maturity and growth...awesome lyrics!

    General Commentwow this is such a great song. i love how you can hear in wyclef's voice the excitement that she's willing to atleast listen to his song when he says, "oh before you walk out that door, listen." it's cute :)

    and the missing word from that one line is "regret." the lyric reads,
    "but i aint gonna forget
    that you brought me regret."
