When I think back to a time
When I was happy
It really makes me want to die
Cuz nothing ever seems to come to my mind

When I dream about a day when we'd be together again
It really makes me want to say
that one day maybe

You called me on the telephone
I could barely say hello
Cuz I was so excited to see
that a pretty girl from school was so interested in me

But little did I know
It was nothing about which to write home
You were just doing a project for class
and you needed some extra cash

So I said to you,
"Ooh girl, you always ask for money
You say, 'don't worry I'll pay you back honey'
But you never put a dime back in my wallet
when you say you will I wish you will
___ show some decency"

Ooh girl, you always ask for money
You say, 'don't worry I'll pay you back honey'
But you never put a dime back in my wallet
when you say you will I wish you will
____ show some decency

I always dream about a day
when I won't be lonely
But those dreams always seem so far away
cuz there's no one out there for me

I've come to terms with
the fact that you won't ever love me
You won't believe it,
but I've been holed up in my room for weeks
___ about you

I hope you have a good life with your new man
but I wish I could have been the one to walk
down the aisle, put a ring on your hand

Tell me girl, does your new boyfriend
treat you like you are a queen
Cuz you know I did, and I do, and I will
cuz you mean that much to me

Ooh girl, you always ask for money
You say, 'don't worry I'll pay you back honey'
But you never put a dime back in my wallet
when you say you will I wish you will
____ show some decency

Ooh girl, you always ask for money
You say, 'don't worry I'll pay you back honey'
But you never put a dime back in my wallet
when you say you will I wish you will
____ show some decency


Oh, oh how I wish I was the one
The one who got to see you
When you woke up in the morning
with no make-up on

Oh how I wish I was the one
The one who got to say
goodnight to you when you went to sleep
after you brush your teeth

Of course you know,
Now I don't want to be alone
Oh how I wish, oh how I wish that I was the one

I used to dream
about you and me
But those dreams could never be
a reality

I hope you have a good life with your new man
but I wish I could have been the one to walk
down the aisle, put a ring on your hand

Tell me girl, does your new boyfriend
treat you like you are a queen
Cuz you know I did, and I do, and I will
cuz you mean that much to me

I hope you have a good life with your new man
but I wish I could have been the one to walk
down the aisle, put a ring on your hand

Tell me baby, does your new boyfriend
treat you like you are a queen
Cuz you know I did, and I do, and I will
cuz you mean that much to me
