"U Got It Bad" as written by Usher Raymond, Jermaine Mauldin Dupri and Bryan Cox....
Oh, no, no, no, no, no

When you feel it in your body
You found somebody who makes you change your ways
Like hanging with your crew
Said you act like you're ready
But you don't really know
And everything in your past, you wanna let it go

I've been there, done it, fucked around
After all that, this is what I found
Nobody wants to be alone
If you're touched by the words in this song
Then baby

U got, u got it bad
When you're on the phone
Hang up and you call right back
U got, u got it bad
If you miss a day without your friend
Your whole life's off track
You know you got it bad when you're stuck in the house
You don't wanna have fun
It's all you think about
U got it bad when you're out with someone
But you keep on thinkin' bout somebody else
U got it bad

When you say that you love 'em
And you really know
Everything that used to matter, don't matter no more
Like my money, all my cars
(You can have it all)
Flowers, cards and candy
(I do it just cause I'm)
Said I'm fortunate to have you girl
I want you to know
I really adore you
All my people who know what's going on
Look at your mate, help me sing my song
Tell her I'm your man, you're my girl
I'm gonna tell it to the whole wide world
Ladies say I'm your girl, you're my man
Promise to love you the best I can

See I've been there, done it, fucked around
After all that, this is what I found
Everyone of y'all are just like me
It's too bad that you can't see
That you got it bad, hey

U got, u got it bad
When you're on the phone
Hang up and you call right back
U got, u got it bad
If you miss a day without your friend
Your whole life's off track
You know you got it bad when you're stuck in the house
You don't wanna have fun
It's all you think about
U got it bad when you're out with someone
But you keep on thinkin' bout somebody else
U got it bad

U got, u got it bad
When you're on the phone
Hang up and you call right back
U got, u got it bad
If you miss a day without your friend
Your whole life's off track
You know you got it bad when you're stuck in the house
You don't wanna have fun
It's all you think about
U got it bad when you're out with someone
But you keep on thinkin' bout somebody else
U got it bad

    General Commentthe song isn't about being with someone and you both really love each other, it's about usher liking someone, and yet, the person is no longer with him, so "he's got it bad for her" and when he's with his friends he's thinking of her, and when he's going out with someone else, he loves her so much that he's still thinking of her, and when he say's "when you miss a day without your friend your whole lifes off track" meaning that when he's not with his friends he's thinking of her too much and doesn't have anything to occupy his thoughts, like his friends, so he feels his life's off track because he keeps thinking about what could have been, so it's like what should have been, isnt, which is why it's off track. also, when he say's "when you say that you love'm, and you don't really know, everything that use to matter, doesn't matter no more, like my money, all my cars, you can have them all back" its saying that the person he's with, (not the one he wants) when he say's "i love you" to her, he's not sure if he does or not, cuz he still has feelsing for his old girl (like myself) and so he'd give it all back, money, cards, cars, flowers, he'll give them all back to be with her again. and which is why he wants the people that ARE together to look at there g/f or b/f and tell them what they really mean to them so that they don't do want he did, and make sure they don't "got it bad" either. well, i hope that helps :)

    General CommentI think this song is so sweet :). Me and my boyfriend always listen to it. We say we got it bad cuz we both are always thinkin about eachother and stuff. I think the song is about thinking about someone 24/7...but then it says about thinking about someone when ur with someone else...so thats silly..? well someone tell me what u think

    General Commentin response to tinamarie the part that says you think about someone when your with someone else its saying that even when you go out places with other people you can't get your b/f out of your head.

    General Commenti love this song just because it's one of those happy/ sad songs.
    If you've got a crush on somebody it's sort of sad cause you think od them so much and it makes you go crazy
    or happy if you're with that somebody ":you've got it bad" for. it's a great song.

    General Commentoh gosh. this song makes me think about the boy I currently adore. we've both "humped around" in our pasts (he a lot more than I), but I'm so ready to let all of that stuff go. we cuddled up one night on the couch and then this song came on the radio. oh gosh. he is awesome.
