"Go On Girl" as written by Shaffer Smith, Tor Erik Hermansen, Mikkel Eriksen, Espen Lind and Amund Bjorklund....
Oh, oh
Oh, I can't get it back
But I don't want it back
I realized that she
Don't know how to act
Never been a dumb dude
No, I'm not dense
I just had a slight lack of common sense
I was the good guy
She was the bad girl
I'm thinking one girl
She thinking me, Earl, James, and Jimmy
Yep, she had plenty
But love for me, she didn't have any

I was inviting (her into my heart)
But she was out riding (in some other man's car)
She was my night time, (thought I was her star)
Guess I was wrong, but, see, I'm strong
Won't take me long for me to move on

Please, don't worry 'bout me, I'm fine
(Please, don't worry 'bout me, I'm fine)
Only gonna play the fool one time
(Only gonna play the fool one time)
Trust me when I say that I'll be okay
Go on, girl
(Go on, girl)
Go on, girl
(Go on, girl)
Go on, girl

I can't get it back
But I don't want it back
I realized that she
Don't know how to act
Tried to settle down and look what I get
Thought it was my time, but I guess not yet
She at the bar getting drinks from many men
I'm in the house, thinking she's with her girlfriends
Just not knowing, truly not knowing
I look back now like, man, I was open

I was inviting (her into my heart)
But she was out riding (in some other man's car)
She was my night time, (thought I was her star)
Guess I was wrong, but, see, I'm strong
Won't take me long for me to move on

Please, don't worry 'bout me, I'm fine
(Please, don't worry 'bout me, I'm fine)
Only gonna play the fool one time
(Only gonna play the fool one time)
Trust me when I say that I'll be okay
Go on, girl
(Go on, girl)
Go on, girl
(Go on, girl)
Go on, girl

Ooo, the mistake I made was clear
(We never should've been together)
That's the reason you're not here
(I know that I can do much better)
Not a single salty tear
Not a feeling in my chest
Baby, I'm feeling no stress
I'm too fly to be depressed

Go on, girl, go on, girl
Go on, girl, go on, girl

Please, don't worry 'bout me, I'm fine
(Please, don't worry 'bout me, I'm fine)
Only gonna play the fool one time
(Only gonna play the fool one time)
Trust me when I say that I'll be okay
Go on, girl
(Go on, girl)
Go on, girl
(Go on, girl)
Go on, girl

Please, don't worry 'bout me, I'm fine
(Please, don't worry 'bout me, I'm fine)
Only gonna play the fool one time
(Only gonna play the fool one time)
Trust me when I say that I'll be okay
Go on, girl
(Go on, girl)
Go on, girl
(Go on, girl)
Go on, girl

Go on, girl, go on, girl, go on, girl
I'll be fine

    General CommentWHAT? No comments on this song?

    It's obviously about a guy who found out that his girl has been cheating on him. Obviously, the girl's trying to repent for what she's done wrong but this guy has had enough of her and is telling her to go fuck off in a nice way. :)

    This is such a sad song. I wish I wouldn't take this song to heart so much.

    General Commentalthough not my top favorite, i feel this is ne-yo best song on the album, lyrically, musically etc.
    he gave his all into his relationship only to find out he was being played. now the girl is trying to act concerned and he's telling her to "please don't worry 'bout me i'm fine." a sad song but powerful.

    My InterpretationThis is a my favourite song by Ne-Yo.

    It is about a guy (assuming it was Ne-Yo since he refers to himself as I) who thought he was in love with a girl. However, the girl was promiscuous and had cheated on him several times with "Earl, James & Jimmy".

    The chorus describes how he does not want sympathy and in fact, he is glad that he became aware of her promiscuous ways.

    Ne-Yo then notices that he should not be upset since he did everything he could and that in the end, it was her promiscuous ways which damaged the relationship (this is evident in the middle and last verse). In the end, he comes to the conclusion that he is "too fly to be depressed", a moment of realisation that he can do better and that this experience has not affected him significantly.
