Brand Nubian Try to Do Me Lyrics

Chorus: [Repeat 2X)
You tried to do me [3X]
I am not the one

Why you want to live so foul?
You know sweatin', one for some, is not my style
I'm the type to wine and dine and the candlelight
Cause just one night could be just so right

Your first riff, is that I'm never home
And you're sick and tired of being alone
But baby I got work to do
And ain't no-one gonna stop me from being Pu'

I buy you rings and things and all that good stuff
But you still beefin' that that is not enough
Let's sit down and discuss it
Baby bust it

You check my beeper when I'm still sleepin'
When I get out of cars you're out your window peepin'
I think the best thing for you and me
Is just to play like John Lennon and Let It Be
You tried to do me

You tried to do me
Chorus: [Repeat 2X]

Yeah, but you see baby
I am not the one
You tried to do me, yeah
Ay bust it

I would sing the song called just be my lady
But you're the type of girl who likes to act real shady
And rain on the brain like a hurricane
Throw rhythm on a dame, cause I know the game

You see, I'm just a rapper and nothing's free so...
"Why are you watchin' me?"
Well honey can I get some privacy?

You say cool, then you try to flip
But you forgot to put the Gucci bag upon your hip
You knew me, you blew me, others would pursue me
The question that I ask is why you, tryin' to do me?

Make like a ship and just float on (float on)
I'm not the type of brother that you can just gig on
I know the time honey, there it is plain to see
You're tryin' to do me

Chorus: [Repeat 2X]

You tried to do me
Yeah, but you see baby
I am not the one
I ain't havin' it

Now see baby, I don't know why you tryin' to flip and alla that
Cause I'm out here tryin' to do my thing
And get these papes in today's society,
You know what I'm sayin'?

I'm tryin' to make things a little better
But if you want to make matters worse
Let me say this first
There's no need for you to try to do me

Chorus: [Repeat 2X)

You tried to do me
You tried to do me babe
But you see
I am not the one
You tried to do me
And now check it, I'ma end it like this

Now good times come, honey good times go
I think this is somethin' that you really oughta know
The name of the game is to maintain
Cause when you lose someone you love, then you feel pain

It's up to you to decide if the love was worth losin'
To me you're not the everyday, Tina, Tammy, Susan
Why can't you, understand?
Instead of tryin' to run the flim-flam on the grand

Baby, do whatever is clever
Cause we can make this last...forever and ever
With joy there's pain
But don't you worry about the Puba Maxwell, cause I can stand the rain

Shoo-be-doo, this is what you oughta do
Think of all the things that I just told you
Remember all the times when I used to hold you and say
We can last through eternity
But don't ever try to do me

Yeah... yeah...
