MARY J BLIGE lyrics : "I Can Do Bad"

Somebody told me once
That pain is a game we all gotta play
Then why am I in overtime

And sudden death every other day

I know that for the good of life

There's a price we all gotta pay
But I'll pay 'till I'm poor and I still don't know
What it is to have a good day


Since everybody knows what it is that I need to do
Well do me a favor,

Let me worry 'bout me
And you worry 'bout you


I don't need no one to put me down
I'm on the ground, can't get no lower
And I don't need no one to hang around an' make me frown

Just makes me look older

And I don't need no one to black my eye

An' tell me lies
Don't wanna cry over nobody else
I can do bad all by myself


Somebody told me once that runnin' from the rain don't make no sense
I had my own dark cloud

For awhile now,
It goes where ever I'm goin'


You're tellin' me the grass might be greener on the other side
But I don't wanna take a chance on dirt
When I got grass

Even though the grass has died
Since everybody knows what it is that I need to do
Well do me a favor,

Let me worry 'bout me
And you worry 'bout you


I don't need no one to put me down
I'm on the ground, can't get no lower
And I don't need no one to hang around an' make me frown

Just makes me look older

And I don't need no one to black my eye

An' tell me lies
Don't wanna cry over nobody else
I can do bad all by myself


Don't waste time feelin' bad for me
I didn't ask you for your sympathy

I know God is watchin' over me
So I guess this is where I'm suppose to be


I don't need no one to put me down
I'm on the ground, can't get no lower
And I don't need no one to hang around an' make me frown

Just makes me look older

And I don't need no one to black my eye

An' tell me lies
Don't wanna cry over nobody else
I can do bad


And I don't need no one to put me down
I'm on the ground, can't get no lower

And I don't need no one to hang around an' make me frown
Just makes me look older


And I don't need no one to black my eye
An' tell me lies
Don't wanna cry over nobody, nobody, nobody else

Cause I can do bad all by myself
