Just Be A Man About It
Toni Braxton Lyrics


"Hey, hey, hold up a minute
Let me stop up here and use this pay phone real quick"
"Hey, hey Toni, it's me
I was just calling, you know, just calling to let you know
Don't wait up for me tonight
I mean, I just got a lot of things on my mind I gotta think about, you know
Just um, I'll be over Brian's house
You know, just for the night
I mean, I mean I know things are different
But you know, it's not you, it's me, you know? It's really me, you know?
And basically, I just think I'ma need some space"

Why you calling me on the phone?
Why you not at home on time?
You say you're staying over at your friends
'Cause you got a lot on your mind
Now you're swearing up and down that it ain't me
Still, you say that things have changed
So, tell me, what exactly does it mean
When you say you need your space?

Just don't make no excuses(why you gotta lie to me?), no, no
(Just be a man about it)
Baby, you don't gotta lie to me, no
(Just be a man about it)
If you wanna leave (I can tell you wanna leave), go on now
(Just be a man about it)
Come and grab your things (so, come and get your things and leave) and go on
Right now (just be a man about it) wuh, yeah-ey, yeah-ey, yeah-ey

"I mean, you gotta understand, I love you
You know what I'm saying? And
I love you enough to say that
I think, I think you deserve somebody better than me, you know? And
Right now, I can't give you what you need, you know? I mean
I wanna love you and I'm gonna love you one day, but you know
I mean, you just gotta understand where I'm coming from"

You say right now that you're not what I'm looking for
And what you really need is time to grow
You're promising that one day you may come around
And I'm supposed to let that go
But where the hell do you get off
Tellin' me your mama said, I'm not what you need?
Tell you what, since she knows it all
Then that's where you need to be

Just don't make no excuses (why you gotta lie to me?), no, no
(Just be a man about it)
Baby, you don't gotta lie to me (you don't gotta lie to me), no, no, no, no
(Just be a man about it)
If you wanna leave (I can tell you wanna leave) go right now
(Just be a man about it)
Come and get your things (so, come and get your things and leave) and go, baby
(Just be a man about it) huh yeah, hey, ooh

Can you tell me how you can say you're in love and then treat me so bad?
Boy, you know it just ain't right
I cannot believe the way you handled things
You wouldn't to lie, if you were a man (why you gotta lie to me?)

(Just be a man about it)
Just be a man about it (you don't gotta lie to me), baby yeah
(Just be a man about it)
You ain't gotta lie to me (I can tell you wanna leave), no, no, baby
(Just be a man about it) If you wanna go, grab your things and leave now
(So, come and get your things and leave) don't wanna say, don't wanna be no more lyin'
(Just be a man about it)
If you wann go, oh, (why you gotta lie to me?) leave but just be a man about it
You ain't gotta (you don't gotta lie to me) be here, so leave me alone, babe
(Just be a man about it)
Baby, just be a man, ey (I can tell you wanna leave) wuh
(Just be a man about it)
(So, come and get your things and leave)

[Verse 1: Toni Braxton]

Why you calling me on the phone

Why you're not at home on time

You say you're staying over your friends

Cause you've got a lot on your mind

Now you're swearing up and down that it ain't me

So you say that things have changed

So tell me what exactly does it mean

When you say you need your space

Just don't make no excuses, no no





[Chorus]

Why you gotta lie to me

Just be a man about it

Baby, you don't gotta lie to me, no

Just be a man about it

If you wanna leave (I can tell you wanna leave), go on now

Just be a man about it

Come and grab your things (So come and get your things and leave)

And go on right now, woo

Just be a man about it

Yeah, yeah, yeah



[Interlude: Dr. Dre]

I mean, you gotta understand I love you

You know what I'm saying

And I love you enough to say that I think

I think you deserve somebody better than me, you know

And right now, I can't give you what you need, you know

I mean, I wanna love you and I'm gonna love you

One day but you know...

I mean, you just gotta understand where I'm coming from



[Verse 2: Toni Braxton]

You say right now that you're not what I'm looking for

And what you really need is time to grow

You're promising that one day you may come around

And I'm supposed to let that go

But where the hell do you get off

Telling me your mama said I'm not what you need

Tell you what, since she knows it all

Then that's where you need to be

Just don't make no excuses, no no





[Hook]

Why you gotta lie to me, no no, yeah

Just be a man about it

Baby, you ain't gotta lie to me, no no no, no (baby, you ain't gotta lie to me)

Just be a man about it

If you wanna leave (I can tell you wanna leave), go right now

Just be a man about it

Come and get your things (so come and get your things and leave)

And go, baby

Just be a man about it, ooh yeah, oh



[Bridge]

Can you tell me how

You can say you're in love

And then treat me so bad

Boy, you know it just ain't right

I cannot believe

The way you handled things

You want to lie

If you were a man...



[Hook to fade]

Why you gotta lie to me

Just be a man about it (Just be a man about it baby)

You don't gotta lie to me

Just be a man about it

You ain't gotta lie to me, no no baby (I can tell you wanna leave)

Just be a man about it

If you wanna go grab your things and leave now

So come and get your things and leave

(Don't wanna stay, don't wanna be no more lying)

Just be a man about it

(If you wanna go on and leave)

Why you gotta lie to me

Just be a man about it

(You ain't gotta be here so leave, no)

You don't gotta lie to me

Just be a man about it

(Baby, just be a man, woo)

I can tell you wanna leave

Just be a man about it

So come and get your things and leave

Just be a man about it
