Kelly Price — 3 Strikes lyrics

1st time I let you back inside
Everybody gets another chance
2nd time my mama replied
Said, "You gotta let him be a man"

3rd time I had it with your lying
So sorry wouldn’t work again
So I said, "3 strikes, you're out, no more
You’re wrong, get gone, keep walkin' out my door"

Packed your bags while you were gone
They’ll be waitin' for you on the lawn
Changed the locks so keep your key
We don’t need to talk, so no apologies

I don’t wanna feel like I’m going through
Time and time again if I’m loving you
So just walk away, leave me alone
This is for the best, so I’m movin' on

1 2 3 4
You were messin' 'round
We're never really sure and
4 3 2 1
You thought it was game
And you could have some fun

1 2 3 4
Said, "I won’t be a fool
Won’t let you back in my door"
4 3 2 1
'Cause playtime is over
You’re through, I’m done

1st time I let you back inside
Everybody gets another chance
2nd time my mama replied
Said, "You gotta let him be a man"

3rd time I had it with your lying
So sorry wouldn’t work again
So I said, "3 strikes, you're out, no more
You’re wrong, get gone, keep walkin' out my door"
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/kelly-price-3-strikes-lyrics.html ]
Had me fooled loving you
Had me thinking 'bout spending life with you
So locked up in your tricky ways
Only thoughts of you had me in a daze

Then reality came and gave to me
What I needed most that was eyes to see
You would never change, everything was game
Countin' all the times, really blows my mind

1 2 3 4
You were messin' 'round
We're never really sure and
4 3 2 1
You thought that it was game
And you could have some fun

1 2 3 4
I won’t be fooled
And won’t let you in my door
4 3 2 1
Playtime is over
You’re through, I’m done

1st time I let you back inside
Everybody gets another chance
2nd time my mama replied
Said, "You gotta let him be a man"

3rd time I had it with your lying
So sorry wouldn’t work again
So I said, "3 strikes, you're out, no more
You’re wrong, get gone, keep walkin' out my door"

I hoped, I prayed
You would come around, see it my way
Now it's too late
No chances, go away, go away
Hey, first time

1st time I let you back inside
Everybody gets another chance
2nd time my mama replied
Said, "You gotta let him be a man"

3rd time I had it with your lying
So sorry wouldn’t work again
So I said, "3 strikes, you're out, no more
You’re wrong, get gone, keep walkin' out my door"

1st time I let you back inside
Everybody gets another chance
