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)
