Verse 1: I didn’t ask to go with you to Mexico I really didn’t need the shopping sprees in LA and Melrose Boy if you didn’t know it, well now you know I didn’t need the furs or the jewelry Because material things they don’t mean much to me And ever since you’ve been gone I’ve been holding us down on my own You know Hook: I never cheated I never ever lied So you can stop asking Asking me why Why I never left you And why I’ve kept it real And why I’m still with you Chorus: You should’ve known better than to think I would leave You should’ve known better than to doubt in me It don’t matter if you’re up, matter if you’re down Either way I’m gonna be around You should’ve known that I would stay by your side You should’ve known your girl was gonna ride or die And it just don’t matter if you’re rich or poor Out here doing five to ten You should’ve known better Verse 2: What makes you think that I would forget about you Think about it, who comes to see you Every Saturday and Monday I was on that receiver It’s me your girl, your life, your world My family and friends, they just don’t understand They say I should leave you alone But I say that they should all just leave us alone Don’t you get it? Hook: I never cheated I never ever lied So you can stop asking Asking me why Why I never left you And why I’ve kept it real And why I’m still with you Chorus: You should’ve known better than to think I would leave You should’ve known better than to doubt in me It don’t matter if you’re up
