I'm tired of your baby's father trying to scare me away, 'cause he's been leaving death threats on my answering machine each day, and how'd he get your cell and find my number anyway? I knew your kid would be included in the package deal, but now her father's antics make a life with you lose its appeal. The drama I've endured since I met you is quite unreal, 'cause you don't wanna cut him out of your life. He needs to see his daughter, and I understand, but how long must I fear for my own life - 'til he accepts the fact that you've found a better man? Tell your baby's daddy "take the L" or you'll be taking one as well. I'm tired of your baby's father trying to push up on me. He visited my job but he got ambushed by security. He needs a hobby much more interesting than stalking me. I've got enough on him to take my grievances to the police, but you advise against it 'cause you say you wanna keep the peace. I'm changing my phone number. I might have to break the lease, 'cause what if he shows up at my front door? If he can't have you, I guess he thinks no one can. I've got two fists to knock him to the floor, but he should be beyond this. We are both grown men! He says that I stole his woman from him; I think that accusation's kinda low. He did something wrong to make you say goodbye, and I did something right to make you say hello. He says that I stole his daughter from him; I think that accusation's quite unwise. If he paid his child support on time, I wouldn't have to buy his daughter school supplies. Please tell me why you let him get away with bringing all this strife into our happy home. If part of you still feels for him today, then let me know so I can leave you both alone. Girl, you know your love's a slice of heaven, but he's putting me through hell. If you've been as firm with him as you say that you have, I sure can't tell!
