Case Of The Fake People - Lyrics by TLC


Lyrics
I thought that I knew about ’em
Thought that they would never do me wrong
Well well the smile in your face
When all the time they wanna take your place
Them backstabbers
Same old scene that you've seen for so long
Always want to be around you
But as jealous as they come
Well don't want you to win that race'cause if you do it's gonna lessen their space
That's when I decide to say
Chorus
Goodbye goodbye
To all the fake people in my life
I never wanted you around me
So be on your way now
You better think twice
Before you let people in your life
Because when you put down
No one is around
You got a case of the fake people
I thought that I new about ’em
The only ones that really cared for me
Oh yeah
But they shouldn't be that way
Only down for as long as
You can give security
Same old scene that you've seen for so long
Always want to be around you
But as jealous as they come well
Don't want you to win that race'cause if you do it's going to lesson their space
That's when I decide to say
Chorus
