Lyrics 

Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah (O)

Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah (U)

Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah (T)

Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah

How could you be so cruel?

Telling me these good things

Boy, you played me for a fool

Now it’s time to hit the streets

See, I’m fed up with yo’ lies

And all the things you’ve done to me

All the phony alibis

Is why your ass is history

Get O-U-T

Farewell

History

‘Cause I can do bad all by myself

Now how could you hustle me? (Hmm)

When I’m the one who really loves you (oh-yeah)

Done just about everything

But still your word was never true (never)

And the worst of it all

You had the nerve to flirt with girlfriend (hm-mm)

Secret college booty calls

Is more than enough to have you missing

Get O-U-T

Farewell

History

‘Cause I can do bad all by myself

I gave you all (all of) of my loving (my loving, babe)

And you played me, boy (played me for a fool)

Get O-U-T (O-U-T)

Is what you gotta do

I can’t take it no more

So, get O-U-T (see I got myself together, babe)

Farewell (and I’ll never love another, babe)

History (give me one more chance to prove it, babe)

‘Cause I can do better all by myself

Get O-U-T (see I got myself together, babe)

Farewell (and I’ll never love another, babe)

History (give me one more chance to prove it, babe)

‘Cause I can do better all by myself

Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah

Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah

Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah

Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah

Woo!
