"Number One" as written by Byron O. Thomas and Bryan Williams....
Ooh I promise not to do it again
I promise not to do it

You can't say I don't love you
Just because I cheat on you
'Cause you can't see all I do
To keep you from knowing the things I do
Like erase my phone
And keep it out of town
I keep it strapped up when I sleep around
Well I should have known one say you'd find out
But you can't go and leave me now

You know that I love you
There's no one above you
I said it the last time
But this is the last time
Don't make me over
'Cause I can be faithful
Baby you're my number one
You're my number one

Now who is she?
What's her name?
You don't need to know about everything
We fight about this
We fight about that
You hang up the phone and call me right back
Well I'll never be something I'm not
Please don't throw away what we've got
'Cause we've been together for way too long
I was playing around but I'm coming home

You know that I love you (know that I love you)
There's no one above you (no one above you)
I said it the last time (hey, hey)
But this is the last time
Don't make me over (don't leave me baby)
'Cause I can be faithful (you know I try)
Baby you're my number one (baby)
You're my number one

I keep you laced up so you ain't gotta borrow nothing
From them broke ass friends who be bargain hunting
They say they shop on eBay - baby why is they frontin'?
They be on the internet but they never cop nothin'
I keep you in Girl what is those on your toes?
And your neck staying froze off that rose colored gold
I suppose you was told by them hoes I was cheatin'
Thinkin' my heart don't got nothing to do with my penis
He got a mind of his own and he just be seeing shit
And I don't want to cheat but I don't be saying shit
I try to jack off he ask me who is you playin' wit?
But I know he love you he told me you was his favorite

You know that I love you (know that I love you)
There's no one above you (above you)
I said it the last time (said it the last time)
But this is the last time (hey hey hey yeah)
Don't make me over (don't leave me baby)
'Cause I can be faithful (you know I try)
Baby you're my number one (oh baby)
You're my number one

You're making it hard for me
You're messing up everything
You tell me I gotta leave
Say we over
You saw that she came over
Came in the Range Rover
Left with a hangover
Say we over

I promise I won't cheat
I promise I won't lie
I promise I'll act right
Say we over
You can't tell me
I can't have you
I can't have that
We ain't over

Hey, it ain't over baby
We ain't over
Oh you don't need to go it's not over
We ain't over
Oh?
We ain't over
Oh it's gonna be alright now don't go now

    General CommentThis song amuses me. I think he knows she has every reason to leave him and wouldn't really blame her, but he does like her and wants her to stay in his life as a constant. I'd leave him, but I just couldn't hate the guy... he's too funny and likeable, the way he comes off in this song.

    General CommentI'm fairly certain, after a few listens, that this song is taking the piss. The chorus "You know that I love you
    There's no one above you
    I said it the last time
    But this is the last time" is blatantly self aware. The overall tone of the song indicates to me that it's all a big joke, the amazing thing is, that some people actually say to their partner "Yeah I love you, I'm sorry about sleeping around."

    Has to be a joke.

    General CommentThis song makes me crack up, I think it's supposed to be kind of a joke

    "I told you my heart don't have nothing to do with my penis
    He got a mind of his own, and he just be seeing shit
    And I don't wanna cheat, but I don't be saying shit
    I try to jack off, he asked me " Who is you playing with? "
    But I know he love you, he told me you was his favorite"

    This is just so ridiculous i laugh everytime
