Da Brat I Was The One

You thought I was the one, but I got my own whips

Own chips own crib and I don’t need this shit here

You thought I was the one, to be dependin’ on you

I’m a independent woman, I’m sorry homie that you

You thought I was the one, to just settle for promises

That you never kept thought I would fail but you won’t ’cause

You thought I was the one, but you been proven false

The truth is you lost, I pay the cost to do what ever I want, yeah

He, thought I was virgin Mary sweet as a nun

Wanted to marry me with hopes I’d carry his son

Or his daughter the thought I gotta stay out of the parties

Stay in the house, be lonesome, and talk to nobody

Be cooped up for the longest, with nothin’ but time

Misery loves company but it ain’t no friend of mine

I cooked and cleaned like a Hebrew slave, till I got blisters

A modern day Miss Celie, and he was my mister

But I woke up one day, started to get real slick

Called a couple of my friends with a few scenarios

Felt like a dance with the devil, didn’t like being happily

Married no more had to go real quick, ’cause it’s my time

And I done made up my mind Shawntae gotta leave you behind

And get my dough ’cause half of that’s mine

And my drow to help me the daughter sunshine

You thought I wouldn’t make it but I’m livin’ proof

Do on to others as you’d have motherfuckers do on to you

You thought I was the one, but I got my own whips

Own chips, own crib and I don’t need this shit here

You thought I was the one, to be dependin’ on you

I’m a independent woman, I’m sorry homie that you

You thought I was the one, to just settle for promises

That you never kept, thought I would fail but you won’t ’cause

You thought I was the one, but you been proven false

The truth is you lost, I pay the cost to do what ever I want, yeah

She, was my ace boon coon in high, we grew up together

You fucked with her I’d fight you, and vice versa

From class to choir rehearsal, totin’ the bags

Slangin’ them sacks, and beat up all the hood rats

Rolling off with the richest niggas on the block

And bring they whips back, but things changed

When I started to rap, jealousy kicked in

She wouldn’t be my friend, she wasn’t even lookin’ out for me

Then, she didn’t even have time to call me on the phone

To say hello so good-bye, good-bye

You’ll never get apiece of my love again

Don’t try, my love is everlasting like Tony Terry

I’m very territorial and I’m over protective to niggas

I love, ’cause I respect them, but not this heffa

She took things in a different direction

I can’t protect her when it’s said and done, shit

I am not the one, I need loyal buddies, supportive of me

Roarin’ for me, breakin’ my trust can get ugly

So please don’t mistake my kindness for weakness

Learn it, as I stomp trough the trenches on this tedious journey

I’m so hot my feet burn, and you keep yearnin’

To be a part of my life but you done fucked it up permanently

Now it don’t concern me no more

You thought I was the one, but I got my own whips

Own chips, own crib and I don’t need this shit here

You thought I was the one, to be dependin’ on you

I’m a independent woman, I’m sorry homie that you

You thought I was the one, to just settle for promises

That you never kept, thought I would fail but you won’t ’cause

You thought I was the one, but you been proven false

The truth is you lost, I pay the cost to do what ever I want, yeah

Sena I thought that I was the one

Sena I thought, you thought that I was the one

Thought I was the one

Thought I was the one, yeah

You thought I was the one, but I got my own whips

Own chips, own crib and I don’t need this shit here

You thought I was the one, to be dependin’ on you

I’m a independent woman, I’m sorry homie that you

You thought I was the one, to just settle for promises

That you never kept, thought I would fail but you won’t ’cause

You thought I was the one, but you been proven false

The truth is you lost, I pay the cost to do what ever I want, yeah
