Meaning

Lyrics

(Intro)

Slip!

Let me talk to you for a minute.


(Verse 1)

I'm like, baby (uh),

Where did your love go?

You say that I got it but it's so damn hard to believe, yeah.

I said, baby (uh-uh),

Where did ya manners go?

You used to open doors and I adored your courtesy.


(Hook 1)

Yeah yeah

So if you really really really wanna stay in my bed,

You got to win me over again.


(Chorus)

Why did you let it slip? (slip),

Bring ya love back to me (back to me),

You put ya heart back in it,

Say it like you mean it,

That's how it used to be.

Why did you let it slip? (slip),

Gimme that TLC (give it back to me),

And put ya mind back on it,

Do it like I want it,

That's how it used to be,

Why did you let it slip?


(Verse 2)

Uh, I'm like, baby (uh-uh),

Where did that charm go? Yeah,

You used to say I'm pretty, give it all that nitty gritty I need, oh yeah.

I said, baby (uh-uh),

Where did your style go? Yeah,

You used to be on top of your game and now you look unclean.


(Hook 2)

Oh yeah

So if you really really really wanna stay in my pants,

You got to do better than that.


(Chorus)

Why did you let it slip? (slip),

Bring ya love back to me (back to me),

You put ya heart back in it,

Say it like you mean it,

That's how it used to be.

Why did you let it slip? (slip),

Gimme that TLC (give it back to me),

And put ya mind back on it,

Do it like I want it,

That's how it used to be,

Why did you let it slip?


(Verse 3/M8)

Baby,

Where did my smile go? Yeah,

You used to cheer me up but now I'm tearier than 10 babies,

(tearier than 10 babies, why'd you have to do that?),

Ooh maybe,

Maybe ya swimming on the other side, yeah,

It's hard to believe how you could ever get enough of me, yeah yeah.


(Chorus)

Why did you let it slip? (slip),

Bring ya love back to me (back to me),

You put ya heart back in it,

Say it like you mean it,

That's how it used to be.

Why did you let it slip? (slip),

Gimme that TLC (give it back to me),

And put ya mind back on it,

Do it like I want it,

That's how it used to be,

Why did you let it slip? (slip),

Bring ya love back to me (back to me),

You put ya heart back in it,

Say it like you mean it,

That's how it used to be.

Why did you let it slip? (slip),

Gimme that TLC (give it back to me),

And put ya mind back on it,

Do it like I want it,

That's how it used to be,

Why did you let it slip?
