I Bet Lyrics
Jump to:
I bet you start loving me
soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you
I bet you start needing me
soon as you see me with someone else
Somebody other than you
And I know that it hurts
You know that it hurts your pride
But you thought the grass was greener on the other side
I bet you start loving me
As soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you

So I'm supposed to believe that it's Fellini's calling' your phone?
I'm supposed to believe that they're asking' you if you're home
I wasn't born yesterday, not me, can't get that over me, not me
I love you but I won't be a fool for you
That is just something' that I wouldn't do, babe
I mean I would stay if you could tell the truth
But you can't, no matter how much time I ask

Is that your bitch over there giving me the ugly stare
The one with the silicone ass, and the Brazilian hair?
You ain't gon' respect me no no no till I'm not there
See, I got you comfortable, now you ain't really scared

I bet you start loving me
soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you
I bet you start needing me
soon as you see me with someone else
Somebody other than you
And I know that it hurts
You know that it hurts your pride
But you thought the grass was greener on the other side
I bet you start loving me
soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you

So you bought me a car, he can buy that too
I can take care of myself and I can find someone to do it too, baby
You actin' like you upgrading me, I upgraded you
You and me Fashion Week at Paris, I put you on to that new
But you took advantage of me, took advantage of you, took advantage
I cannot understand it, I cannot understand it, I cannot understand it
I thought you'd always be there for me, yeah yeah
But if you ask me if I knew better now, hell yeah

So you can keep that bitch over there giving' me the ugly stare
The one with the silicone ass, and the Brazilian hair?
You ain't gon' respect me no no no till I'm not there
See, I got you comfortable, now you ain't really scared

I bet you start loving me
soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you
I bet you start needing me soon as you see me with someone else
Somebody other than you
And I know that it hurts, you know that it hurts your pride
But you thought the grass was greener on the other side
I bet you start loving me
soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you

Baby, tell me what's it, gonna take to keep it
All the way one hundred
You won't get it till I'm gonna away (away)

I bet you start loving me
soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you
I bet you start needing me
soon as you see me with someone else
Somebody other than you
And I know that it hurts
You know that it hurts your pride
But you thought the grass was greener on the other side
I bet you start loving me
soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you

Ohh ohh Oohh
I hate I hate that I'm
Singing this song
singing this song
Cause I love you
yea I love you

I'm all cried out
I'm all tried out
I'm all fired out

Oohh oohh oohhh
Right now its killing me cause I have to find someone else
when all I wanted was you
