my baby don't mess around
because she loves me so
and this I know fo' sho
but does she really wanna?
can't stand to see me
walk out the door

don't try to fight the feelin'
because the thought alone
is killing me right now
thank god for mom and dad
for sticking through together
'cause we don't know how

hey ya
hey ya
hey ya

you think you've got it
oh, you think you've go it
but got it just don't get it
'til there's nothing at
we've been together
oh, we've been together
but separate's always better
when there's feelings involved

if what they say is "nothing is forever"
then what makes love exception?

so why you, why are we so in denial?
when we know that we're not happy here
y'all don't want me here
you just wanna dance

hey ya
hey ya
hey ya

now what's cooler than bein' cool?
ICE COLD!
alright, ok now, to the ladies
we gonna break this shit down!

shake it, shake it
like a polaroid picture!
shake it, shake it
like a polaroid picture!

hey ya
hey ya
hey ya

    General Commentwwwwwoops. Wrong artist. Whatever, anyway, the song is still about the singer and their significant other no longer being in love. Failed to realize that this was the cover of Andre 3000's Hey Ya.
