    If I could be any happier in this Muphuka
    I'd be preaching
    Praising the lawd so hard
    like Dexter Deacon
    Instead my mind get infiltrated on a daily
    don't hate me
    cause you ain't done nothing for me lately
    Sorry Janet, had to borrow that for a minute
    I know it sounds like brotherman is kinda cynic
    but see, my thinking is engaged in petty woes
    that makes a man want to stray out wit' some hoes
    do you suppose
    you know the answer to my ills?
    do you impose that a ***** keep it real?
    think that Ginuwine is here to pay the bills?
    tha' deal
    is that if you forgot "how to" -another sister will
    now wait a minute
    no, we guys ain't all the same
    when being sincere
    we get accused of playing games
    when playing games
    we get accused of being trife
    so in confusion we just try to do what right's....for...ourselves

    think about it

    and what's right for me is being wanted
    like a rare exotic treasure being hunted
    Raspy raunchy moments thrown at me at lunch time
    Spur of them moments ya' blowing more than my mind
    what's right for me is to be appreciated
    and everyday I shouldn't feel the need to state it
    that *** should be the first thing on my platter
    I guess you never thought -all that -really mattered

    think about it

    Of all people you know that I keeps it simple
    Young at heart but got insight like Mr. Wendell (Arrested Development)
    Life is too short for me to feel I'm being shorted
    too many are out there telling me I'm too important
    To be feeling like this...

    Missy wish she had a man that would do that
    Prissy looking over ya' should trying to get that
    Kizzy just like her daddy, ain't trying to hear that
    But kunta kente's cloth is bout' to spear that
    you thinking....?

    Don't let the daily pressures catch you sleeping
    All is takes is just one time out on the weekend
    When thoughts are clouded by the apples in the trees
    making the roots appear lesser in degrees
    oh yeah I know you tell your friends that -"he just talking"
    I'll go Bellsouth and let my fingers do the walking
    and 911 that special friend to see me through
    cause there be hella sisters like me in these shoes
    Just wanna clear that up with ya' before I scatter
    these seeds girl, as if it really mattered....to you.

    think about it. :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :maddd:

    this hard but true, I completely feel you on this one.
    as men we be so simple
    the women know how easy we are to please but so often they just be lazy til we become a memory of history.
