"Gettin' In the Way" as written by Jill H. Scott and Vidal Davis....
You're getting in the way
Of what I'm feeling
You're getting in the way
Of what I'm feeling

Sista girl
I know you don't understand
But you're gonna have to understand
He's my man now
What you had is gone
Our thing is sweet
Our thing is stronger than any lie
You can tell on me
He knows my heart, and that's the part
Your roots are dug up
So you might as well give a
I see your intentions
You can't handle the truth
He let you go a long time ago
Now it's time to turn and lose

You're getting in the way
Of what I'm feeling
(You're getting in my way)
You're getting in the way
Of what I'm feeling
You're getting in the way
Of what I'm feeling
(My feelings y'all)
You're getting in the way
Of what I'm feeling
(Of my feelings)

Sugar honey girl
Fly, fly away
I've been a lady up till now
Don't know how much more I can take
Queens shouldn't swing
If you know what I mean
But I'm bout to take my rings off
Give me some Vaseline
I'm bout to go off in your face girl

You better chill
(Chill and I mean it)
You better back down before you get smacked down
You better chill
(You better relax yourself)
I'm bout to go off in your face girl
(He's my man girl, nobody else's)
You better chill
You better back down before you get smacked down
You better chill
(You better back down)

You're getting in the way
(You're getting in my way)
Of what I'm feeling
(Of what I'm feeling)
You're getting in the way
(You're getting in my way)
Of what I'm feeling

You better back down
You're getting in the way
Of what I'm feeling
You're getting in the way

(You're getting in the way, of what I'm feeling)
Everything was beautiful between me and him
And here come you and your big mouth talking about me
(You better back down before you get smacked down, you better chill)
(You're getting in the way, of what I'm feeling)
Telling him that you seen me up 24th Street
(You better back down before you get smacked down, you better chill)
(You're getting in the way, of what I'm feeling)
With them other cats, but you know that's a lie
(You better back down before you get smacked down, you better chill)
(You're getting in the way, of what I'm feeling)
You keep lying to my man girlfriend
I'm gon' take you out in the middle of the street and whoop your tail
(You better back down before you get smacked down, you better chill)
(You're getting in the way, of what I'm feeling)
For all it's worth, $5.99 or something like that

(You better back down before you get smacked down, you better chill)
(You're getting in the way, of what I'm feeling)
(You better back down before you get smacked down, you better chill)
(You're getting in the way, of what I'm feeling)
(You better back down before you get smacked down, you better chill)
(You're getting in the way, of what I'm feeling)
I ain't playing with you
(You better back down before you get smacked down, you better chill)
(You're getting in the way, of what I'm feeling)

    General CommentMy dad told me this: when he was in high school, girls would put vaseline on their faces before a fight to protect them if they get scratched. I never saw girls do that when I was in high school, so I thought that was pretty funny.
