"Can't Get It Back" as written by Salaam Remi, Marlon Lu'ree Williams, Hernst Bellevue, Joseph Freeman, Aubrey Gravatt, Theodore Life and Natina Reed....
Can't get it back
Can't get it back
Can't (cant) get (get) it (it) back (back)
Can't (cant) get (get) it (it) back (back)

Verse 1, when we begun
You know you had a sister all sprung
With ya tongue
I thought you were my baby
Now when we laid
You always knew the right words to say
We got engaged
To be married the very next May

As the time moved on
The love we had got torn
Used to love from dusk til dawn
But now your trippin' from night til morn
Now you wan na change
I'm sick of you playin' these games
I'm telling you one thing
You ain't gettin' back
You ain't gettin' back
This ring

I gave you my love and I can't get it back
Gave you all my time and I can't get it back
Now the ring that you gave me, you can't have it back
'cause it's just not going down like that
Gave you my time and I can't get it back
Gave you all my love and I can't get it back
Now the things that you gave me, you want them back
But It's just not going down like that

Can't (cant) get (get) it (it) back (back)
Can't (cant) get (get) it (it) back (back)

Verse 2, now we're through
Too much time's been wasted on you
But it's cool
Put the glass shoe on another young fool
I accept, that you crept
And couldn't take the heat
So you stealt
Now I'm set
Don't come back for nothin' that you left

As the time moved on
The love we had got torn
Used to love from dusk til dawn
But now your trippin' from night til morn
Now you wan na change
I'm sick of you playin' these games
I'm telling you one thing

You ain't gettin' back
You ain't gettin' back
This ring

I gave you my love and I can't get it back
Gave you all my time and I can't get it back
Now the ring that you gave me, you can't have it back
'cause it's just not going down like that
Gave you my time and I can't get it back
Gave you all my love and I can't get it back
Now the things that you gave me, you want them back
But It's just not going down like that

Boy let me tell you this
Don't you know you can't get back
What you put in this relationship
That includes this ring
Cause I know I can't get back
All my kissin' huggin' lovin'

Ha Ha Check it
We had a happy environment
I put all this time in
I gave you my all and even met your requirements
Now you're going out cheatin'
And you're comin' home smiling
You can say what you want
But you ain't gettin' this diamond
Ha. You tiptoed

Just keep your zip closed
(Did you really think that)
That you could take me for a ride
If ya knock on my door then you know we're gonna collide

I gave you my love and I can't get it back
Gave you all my time and I can't get it back
Now the ring that you gave me, you can't have it back
'Cause it's just not going down like that
Gave you my time and I can't get it back
Gave you all my love and I can't get it back
Now the things that you gave me, you want them back
But It's just not going down like that

I gave you my love and I can't get it back
Gave you all my time and I can't get it back
Now the ring that you gave me, you can't have it back
'Cause it's just not going down like that
Gave you my time and I can't get it back
Gave you all my love and I can't get it back
Now the things that you gave me, you want them back
But It's just not going down like that

    General CommentI love this song, it's one of those real girl power, strong songs, she's caught him cheating and broken it off, he's trying to take her engagement ring back, and she's refusing, she's put everything into this relationship, she might as well get something out of it.
