[ VERSE 1 ] I met a guy named Tommy, damn, he charmed me Met him at the mall, but I knew he wouldn't harm me We exchanged numbers, hopin to meet again We couldn't wait for the romance to begin The relationship grew strong I didn't wanna be right if this love was wrong But oh no, came the problems, the first segment The dumb kid went and got some girl pregnant The second segment: started wheelin and dealin Didn't give a damn about how Lyte was feelin But then he got wise, started treatin me better Cause all of his friends said I was a go-getter He knew he was usin me, and abusin me He also knew that soon he'd be losin me First I clocked him, yeah, I docked him But I rocked him - and then I dropped him [ VERSE 2 ] Then there was Dave, couldn't behave So I punished him and put him in my Lyte-as-a-rock cave Then he got bold, tried to play insane So Bigfoot threw him off my paperthin train He tried to 10%-dis me, but he pissed me off Cause I'm the boss, and you know I'm not havin it Lyte is too dope, and you know I ain't crabbin it Then there was Henry, way too friendly I needed a trip, he said he would send me Pay my airfare, if he could come with me I said, "Listen, honey, I don't need your money Believe me when I tell you, I've got my own Cause I'm MC Lyte on the microphone" Yeah [ VERSE 3 ] Here's another story: a dude named Corey When I used to work, yes, I was a clerk At the Worldtrade Center, back in high school This little player musta thought I was a fool He took me out to lunch, offered me a ride home When we got there, he asked could he use my telephone I said, "Yeah, sure", flipped him to the floor Cause he said "What's up?" and tried to feel my butt I kicked him down the stairs and said, "What you're provin?" Rolled him to his car and said, "Get movin!" He tried to score it, I wasn't goin for it You can't play me, I'm Lyte Thee MC Never saw his face again until last week All beat up and bleedin down the street I looked to my left, there was a girl with a pipe in her hand Sayin, "Why oh why can't you understand?"
