"He Wasn't Man Enough For Me" as written by Lashawn Daniels, Rodney Roy Jerkins, Harvey Jay Mason and Freddie D Iii Jerkins....
Who do you think I am?
Don't you know that he was my man?
But I chose to let him go
So why do you act like I still care about him?
Looking at me like I'm hurt
When I'm the one who said I didn't want it to work
Don't you forget I had him first?

Whatcha' thinking
Stop blaming me
He wasn't man enough for me
If you don't know now, here's your chance
I've already had your man
Do you wonder just where he's been
And I'd be worried about him
Now it's time you know the truth
I think he's just the man for you

What are you thinking
Do you know about us back then
Do you know I dumped your husband
Girlfriend
I'm not thinking 'bout him
But you married him
Do you know I made him leave
Do you know he begged to stay, with me (with me)
He wasn't man enough for me

Didn't he tell you the truth
If not, then why don't you ask him
And maybe you could be more into him
Instead of worrying 'bout me
And hopefully, you won't find
All of the reasons why his love didn't count
And why we couldn't work it out

What are you thinking
Do you know about us back then
Do you know I dumped your husband
Girlfriend
I'm not thinking 'bout him
But you married him
Do you know I made him leave
Do you know he begged to stay, with me (with me)
He wasn't man enough for me

So many reasons why our love is through (yeah)
What makes you think he'll be good to you (no)
It makes no sense
'Cause he will never change
Girl you better recognize the game oh yeah

What are you thinking
Do you know about us back then
Do you know I dumped your husband
Girlfriend
I'm not thinking 'bout him
But you married him
Do you know I made him leave
Do you know he begged to stay, with me (with me)
He wasn't man enough for me

    General Commentman enough for her... well no shit... listen to her voice. it's so deep i don't think any man's voice would be deeper than hers...

    General Commenthaha okay so i agree with everyone, her voice is pretty deep, but the song seems to reach out to people who've had a bad expierience. not trying to complain.. ive had great relationships, ive been lucky, however i know theyre out there.

    i think some lyrics might be wrong..
    instead of :
    "do you know about your boyfriend, girlfriend"

    im pretty sure its:
    "do you know i dumped your boyfriend, girlfriend."

    thats all. :)

    General Commenti dont think this song is as simple as it sounds. she's not being all noble trying to warn this girl about her ex being 'not man enough'. the truth is, she's missing the ex and she's jealous this girl married him so she's slagging the guy off trying to hide her jealousy.

    a) why would u bother if u truly didn't care about ur ex? obviously u care enough to know they're married and trying to ruin their relationship by reminding the girl how much her husband used to love this other woman (who wants to hear that?!)
    b) she explicitly says 'i'm not thinking about him', which is an obvious lie cos she keeps asking the girl to ask him about their past
    c) she reminisces he 'begged to stay' with her, but he wasn't 'man enough' (said no to him) but regrets it now
    d) she's jealous that they 'couldn't work it out', but it obviously did for them (cos they're married). she tries to sabotage it by saying 'it makes no sense cos he will never change'

    i think this is a classic case of not knowing what u're missing til it's gone....

    General Commentwho do i think i am?
    A real woman with morals and values not no bullshit inside
    Dont you know he was my man?
    for two years i dealt with the nigga no wait for almost 4 years
    But i chose to let him go
    because i knew there would be a real man out there for me
    so why do i act like i still care about him?
    i feel nothing for this person

    looking at me like im hurt
    my momma taught me better than to let me people's words get to me when im still standing here with the strength and love that my heart will never fail to create never will i let the bitters of this world infect me
    When im the one that said that i didnt want it to work
    many times i told him to stop calling me and stop looking for me i broke it off after the incidents
    Did you forget i had him first?
    there will never ever be anyone like me, he will never have the same love again because i had first and im done with it now =]

    whatcha thinkin stop blaming me
    FIND OUT WHOSE FAULT IT REALLY WAS
    he wasnt man enough for me
    stupid games people play

    Whatcha' thinking
    Stop blaming me
    He wasn't man enough for me
    If you don't know now is your chance
    U BETTER OPEN YOUR EYES
    I already had your man
    Do you wonder just where he's been
    DONT YOU WONDER?

    cheating,lying,plain ass abusive ass nigga (no hard feelings just the truth)

    And I'd be worried about him
    Now it's time you know the truth
    I think he's just the man for you
    his perfect for you =] lol
    whore for whore ;)
    (just the truth)

    (chorus)
    What are you thinking
    Do you know about us back then
    Do you know I dumped your husband
    Girlfriend
    IT WAS ME WHO LEFT HIM
    I'm not thinking 'bout him
    But you married him
    Do you know I made him leave
    many times i told him to LEAVE ME ALONE and he said he came back for me
    Do you know he begged to stay, with me (with me)
    SHoulda have seen the way he cried for me, tried to break in my window BUT
    He wasn't man enough for me!

    Didn't he tell you the truth
    his a LIAR
    If not, then why don't you ask him
    And maybe you could be more into him
    Instead of worrying 'bout me
    And hopefully, you won't find
    All of the reasons why his love didn't count !
    And why we couldn't work it out
    SOMEDAY you will find out yourself

    Whatcha' thinking
    Stop blaming me
    He wasn't man enough for me
    If you don't know now, now is your chance
    See, I already had your man
    Do you wonder just where he's been
    And I'd be worried about him
    I FEEL BAD FOR YOU or whoever is next after you
    Now it's time you know the truth
    I think he's just the man for you
    (HEs not even a man, his fixated in his childhood just the truth)

    What are you thinking
    Do you know about us back then
    Do you know I dumped your husband
    Girlfriend !!!
    I'm not thinking 'bout him !!!
    But you married him
    Do you know I made him leave
    Do you know he begged to stay, with me
    He wasn't man enough for me

    So many reasons why our love is through (yeah)
    What makes you think he'll be good to you (no)
    It makes no sense
    'Cause he will never change
    Girl you better recognize the game oooohhhh- yeah
    HE WILL NEVER EVER CHANGE GIRL, this is from my heart

    What are you thinking (why did he ask me to come back oh) <----------
    Do you know about us back then (beggin' me to stay)
    Do you know I dumped your husband
    Girlfriend
    I'm not thinking 'bout him
    But you married him
    Do you know I made him leave
    Do you know he begged to stay, with me
    He wasn't man enough for me

    This has been a seriously crazy ass experience but its just another lesson learned
    now i know what a REAL man isn't suppose to be
    and now i know who real friends are
    and now i know im stronger and better than ever
    and now i know i am never looking back
    i am never giving up <3


    THank you, the end, much love to all of you, my heart is big enough ;)
