I told my girl bye-bye (bye)
And I really didn't mean it
Said I met somebody new so fine (fine)
And I really didn't mean it

Out of my head to say the things I said
I didn't mean a word
Think jealousy just took a hold of me
I hope she'll ignore the things she heard
(No doubt about it) My heart is in her hands
(With every moment) I'm waiting for a second chance
(Maybe an angel) Will come and help her see
I can't face the world if she don't love me

I told my girl bye-bye (bye)
And I really didn't mean it
Said I met somebody new so fine (fine)
And I really didn't mean it
When I walked away I cried (cried)
And I really didn't mean it
So she took me back cause she knew I (I)
Really didn't mean it

Dear one from me take my apology
I need you back
I promise I know o never let you go
Is there a chance to see you baby
(They talk about all) the love that we still share
(From her emotion) I barely miss your happiness
(You're missing and mourning) the way it used to be
I know it's true but I don't believe

I told my girl bye-bye (bye)
And I really didn't mean it
Said I met somebody new so fine (fine)
And I really didn't mean it
When I walked away I cried (cried)
And I really didn't mean it
So she took me back cause she knew I (I)
Really didn't mean it

I want you back it can't be any other way
I want you back and I've waited for the day
I want you back I'm gonna be a little smarter
I want you back I'm gonna try a little harder
She's good She's fine and always on my mind
I know our love will stand the test of time
She's my girl and my best friend
And I really didn't mean it
Her love is love so fine and so for real
I want the world to know the way I feel
She's my girl and my best friend
And I really didn't mean it
Yeah... yeah.. ooh...

I told my girl bye-bye (bye)
And I really didn't mean it
Said I met somebody new so fine (fine)
And I really didn't mean it
When I walked away I cried (cried)
And I really didn't mean it
So she took me back cause she knew I (I)
Really didn't mean it
