Doo doo doo doo doo doo mmm
Dooby dooby doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo mmm

There was a rose I knew, I met her once or twice before
She was a pretty sweet thing, not the least bit insecure
Then you came with your slick game and played with her youth
Ashamed of the way you lied, played with the truth, hey, hey

Mmm, she never knew what hit her
Steal her honey, then forget her
A rose
She wears a flower
Tryin' to forget about you

Cause a rose is still a rose
Baby, girl, you're still a flower
He can't lead you and then take you
Make you and then break you
Darlin', you hold the power

Now believe me when I tell you that I've been hurt myself
When he tells you that he loves you and sees nobody else
And now you're so tough tryin' to wear tight clothes and things
Tossin' and flossin', tryin' to fill the void heartbreak brings

Oh, oh, yeah
When she faces the mirror, yeah
She's cryin', you can't hear her
Now the rose is still a rose
She wears a flower, tryin' to forget about you

Cause a rose is still a rose
Baby, girl, you're still a flower
He can't lead you and then take you
Make you and then break you
Baby, girl, you hold the power

See a rose is still a rose
Baby, girl, you're still a flower
He can't lead you and then take you
Make you and then break you
Darlin', you hold the power

Let your life be in the sunshine
Not the darkness of your sorrow
You may see your all today
When you know it'll come tomorrow

Tough to be, but life ain't over
Just because your man is gone
Girl, love yourself and love to love
Cause without him your life goes on
Without him your life goes on
Without him your life goes on

Cause a rose is still a rose
Baby, girl, you're still a flower
He can't lead you and then take you
Make you and then break you
Baby, girl, you hold the power

See a rose is still a rose
Baby, girl, you're still a flower
He can't lead you and then take you
Make you and then break you
Darlin', you hold the power

    General CommentLyrics are false. Here's the true lyrics:

    There was a rose I knew, I met her once or twice before
    She was a pretty sweet thing, not the least bit insecure
    Then you came with your slick game and played with her youth
    unashamed of the way you lies, played with the truth, hey, hey

    Mmm, she never knew what hit her
    Steal her honey, then forget her
    A rose
    She wears a flower
    Tryin’ to forget about you

    ‘Cause a rose is still a rose
    Baby, girl, you’re still a flower
    He can’t lead you and then take you
    Make you and then break you
    Darlin’, you hold the power

    (WHAT I AM IS WHAT I AM)

    Now believe me when I tell you that I’ve been hurt myself
    When he tells you that he loves you, and sees nobody else
    And now you’re so tough tryin’ to wear tight clothes and things
    Tossin’ and flossin’, tryin’ to fill the void heartbreak brings

    Oh…oh…yeah
    When she faces the mirror, yeah
    She’s cryin’, you can’t hear her
    Now the rose is strong
    She wears a flower, tryin’ to forget about you

    ‘Cause a rose is still a rose
    Baby, girl, you’re still a flower
    He can’t lead you and then take you
    Make you and then break you
    Baby, girl, you hold the power

    (WHAT I AM IS WHAT I AM)

    See a rose is still a rose
    Baby, girl, you’re still a flower
    He can’t lead you and then take you
    Make you and then break you
    Darlin’, you hold the power

    (WHAT I AM IS WHAT I AM)

    Let your life be in the sunshine
    Not the darkness of your sorrow
    You may see your all today
    When you know it’ll come tomorrow

    don't believe that life is over
    Just because your man is gone
    Girl, love yourself enough to know
    that without him your life goes on
    Without him your life goes on
    Without him your life goes on

    ‘Cause a rose is still a rose
    Baby, girl, you’re still a flower
    He can’t lead you and then take you
    Make you and then break you
    Baby, girl, you hold the power

    (WHAT I AM IS WHAT I AM)

    See a rose is still a rose
    Baby, girl, you’re still a flower
    He can’t lead you and then take you
    Make you and then break you
    Darlin’, you hold the power
