Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Every time me give me Woman bone she find out
But she stand up by me side she never sign out
Tell yuh one ting weh yah eat me mind out
Here another Man a get the wine

But I understand gal
Its just now to agree
All the while I was cheating on you
You were cheating on me
But I understand gal
A juss so life turn
Every Man have another gal
And every Woman have another Man

If your Woman give yuh bone, would you understand
Weh nuh she yuh make de vow to wid the weddenig bond
Would you run her out, would you make she turn
Would you still live your life and be none
Imagine don have yourself as a thug
You ah your friends dem step up inna club
Look inna corner see your Woman nather Man arm
Me nah badda drop fi dis lock

But I understand gal
Its just now to agree
All the while I was cheating on you
You were cheating on me
But I understand gal
A juss so life turn
Every Man have another gal
And every Woman have another Man

No Man caan tek bone every Woman should know
Its not like we are trying tek Woman fi puppy show
But me learn this from me likkle than a grow
Woman you caan do wat no guys do, still be a lady
All wen you keep it pon de down low
Woman sey she dream see her Man grow so
Wit another Woman somebody she no know
Ah anything she dream is just so it go

But I understand gal
am willing to agree
All the while I was cheating on you
You were cheating on me
But I understand gal
A juss so life turn
Every Man have another gal
And every Woman have another Man

Do you really trust your spouse al bwoshy inna your house
Do you live like cat and like mouse
Tell me if you bring her out bling her out
Ah no feel check n sey another man pon de road
Ah tek ma gal ah never now see eat some ice cream
See a police car a pass blow de siren (Woooh!)
Not a day event a sey it was a night seen
Couldnt intervene the former queen sey rwob

But I understand gal
Its just now to agree
All the while I was cheating on you
You were cheating on me
But I understand gal
A juss so life turn




Every Man have another gal
And every Woman have another Man
