"Taking My Money Back" as written by Hikaru Utada, Teruzane Utada and Christopher Stewart....
Boy you make it hard, you make it hard to leave
Boy you make it hard, you're no good for me

Everyday, every night, you were out, with your boys
Getting high
While I worked hard to pay the rent
And my girls said I should lose you but I stuck with you
'Cause you promised to change

What I gave, you took, nothing came in return
But I, I kept on giving baby
'Cause the sex was so good, and your talk was so smooth
That I, I guess I bought it baby

Now I finally see you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
Get down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

I'm singing ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
You know I really loved you boy
Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
What a waste of a man so fine

What about, out about all your fooling around
While I, I had to cry about it
Then you said you're sorry and you loved me only
I should have left you right then

Now I finally see you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
Get down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

I'm singing ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
You know I really loved you boy
Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
What a waste of a man so fine

Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
Give me back my heart, give me back my time
Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
What a waste of a woman so fine

Now I finally see you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
Get down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
Give me back my heart, give me back my time
Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
What a waste of a woman so fine

Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
Give me back my heart, give me back my time
Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
What a waste of a woman so fine

    General CommentCan't get into this one, don't really feel like this is her talking here. She still has a great sound on this one but the writing...

    My OpinionI totally agree with you Soar. It's as if a totally different person wrote the songs on her last album. Her sound is still as unique and beautiful as ever, but the writing is suddenly so different. I like listening to simple songs like these because I often like the rhythm, but it doesn't fit her at all.

    The song meaning is pretty obvious: someone she was in a relationship with took adventage of her and she isn't taking it anymore.
