A                                            G

    Honey, came in and she caught me red-handed,

    A                                      G

creeping with the girl next door.

A                                     G                         A                                       G

    Picture this, we were both butt-naked, banging on the bathroom floor.

                 A      G                   A                            G

How could I forget that I had given her an extra key,

            A                     G                             A                                  G

all this time she was standing there, she never took her eyes off me.

 

                             A                                               G

1. How you can grant the woman access to your villa,

                                  A                                              G

    trespasser and a witness while you cling to your pillow ?

                                          A                                         G

    You better watch your back before she turn into a killer,

                                      A                                    G

    best for you and the situation not to call the beaner.

                           A                                                 G

    To be a true player you have to know how to play,

                          A                                         G

    if she say “a night“, convince her say “a day”.

                     A                                   G

    Never admit to a word when she say,

                                         A                                G

    and if she claims and you tell her, baby, no way.

 

A                                              G                          A

    But she caught me on the counter. - It wasn't me !

                                           G                      A

    Saw me bangin' on the sofa. - It wasn't me !

                                          G                         A

    I even had her in the shower. - It wasn't me !

                                             G                           A

    She even caught me on camera. - It wasn't me.

                                                   G                          A

    She saw the marks on my shoulder. - It wasn't me !

                                         G                            A

    Heard the words that I told her. - It wasn't me !

                                          G                         A

    Heard the scream get louder. - It wasn't me !

                                           G

    She stayed until it was over.

           A          G                             A                         G

I had tried to keep her from what she was about to see.

                      A       G                       A                         G

Why should she believe me when I told her it wasn't me ?

 

                                 A                                                                    G

2. Make sure she knows it's not you and lead her on the right prefix,

                                         A                                       G

    whenever you should see her make the giggolo flex.

                            A                                       G

    As funny as it be by you, it not that complex,

                        A                                                        G

    seeing is believing, so you better change your specs.

                                             A                                                    G

    You know she not gonna be worrying 'bout things from the past,

                        A                                                            G

    hardly recollecting and then she'll go to noontime mass.

                           A                           G

    Wait for your answer : go over there,

                                  A                                          G

    but if she pack a gun you know you better run fast !
