lyrics

Quit calling on the telephone


I done told you that I'm not at home


A girl just needs to be alone


Don't need no man to walk to me home

See I tell you its the way to be


And I'm living life carefree


Don’t need no sir to hold me down


So keep concentrating on your frown

And I tell you straight


I ain't looking so go on your way

I’ve got plans and they don't include you

Said it’s true I've heard it all before


So take two steps backwards

See I found a man who's nice and sweet

When I come home there's food to eat

He treats me like royalty


Knows the meaning of loyalty

See I've been there done that before

And I know you're looking to score


But I've got a man who's good to me

I ain’t got time to say please

And I'll telling you straight baby


I ain't looking so go on your way

I’ve got plans and they don't include you

Said it’s true I've heard it all before


So take two steps backwards

Straight honey

I ain't looking so go on your way

I’ve got plans and they don't include you

All before


Two steps backwards

Yeah it’s true

I’ve got plans and they don't include you I've heard it all before


So please take two steps backwards Yeah it’s true

I’ve got plans and they don't include you no I've heard it all before


So please take two steps backwards
