"Jane Doe" as written by Alicia J Augello-cook and Kandi L Burruss....
Ay yo, Alicia
What's up, Kandi?
Man, these Jane Does be killing me thinking they slick wit it
For real, drop the beat
Alicia Keys
Kandi
Collabo

Let's talk about the situation
'Bout how you came with information
That's negative in every which way
Just dissin' my man and our relations
You say he's cheatin,' want me to leave him
I've changed my mind, I think I'll keep him
Listenin' to you will leave me lonely
That's not what I'm tryin' to be

'Cause I'll be crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no
Just crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no

Don't you turn and check my man out
How 'bout you 'splain what that's all about
Think you slick like I wouldn't know
But I got something for you, Doe
Mess around end up in a choke, hold
Girl, I think it's time for you to go
Away from my man and me
That's the way it's gonna be

'Cause I'll be crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no
Just crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no

I love my man
He loves me more
He may not be the perfect man
But I don't plan to let him go for Jane Doe, oh oh

'Cause I'll be crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no
Just crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no

Crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no

'Cause I'll be crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no
(Jane Doe)

'Cause I'll be crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no

Just crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no

Crazy to let my man go
And let some other Jane Doe
Come and try to steal him, oh no, oh no

    General CommentYeah this is definetely another one of those all-too-common love predicaments that we girls constantly find ourselves in the middle of. All I gotta say is dont let nobody take your man, but dont be a fool and fight over him, cuz he very well may be playing ya ass. Oh yeah, and never, NEVER pick homeboy over ur homegirls, cuz when its all said and done, relationships may come and go, but real friends are forever.

    *Alicia Keys for life*

    General CommentThis song is so like Jill Scott's "Gettin in da way". Both songs have the same meaning. And that is, it is about another girl (more likely an ex of your boyfriend) who tries to convince you that he is not over her, while at the same time, tries to win him back again. And basically, obviously, the songs display words that you would definitely be saying if that happened to you; tryin to pick a damn good fight with her to keep your man. I love songs with these comebacks! =D

    Song MeaningOh, I am soooooooooo feeling this song. Sh*t's been happening this weekend with my boyfriend's ex winding me up by saying things to him. Her best friend has also got involved and it's like, seriously get a life! As if he's going to take your side over me! These girls are so deluded to think that our partners will ever get back with them. Girls, you know when your guy is head over heels for you! As if she even stood a chance, silly b*tch!

    Just wrote this lyric on my staus on Facebook:

    I love my man
    He loves me more
    He may not me the perfect man
    But I don't plan to let him go for


    True to the core. Loving Alicia for this song! It's so true to me and it will so do the job i.e. wind up that skank of an ex girlfriend! Hah!
