Lyrics

Today I Feel

Written By: The Bama Boyz

What?!
I wanna curse and I wanna scream
And getting annoyed by everything.
Here’s something wrong with every word you say,
I wish you just leave.
I want you to stay,
Wanna talk about it but I don’t wanna talk.
I wanna stay home,
You wanna go out
I’m not mad, but I’m getting pissed .
Today I feel like being a bitch

I know I don’t have other reason why,
It’s just how I feel at the time,
I really don’t feel need to lie,
I just wanna say what I feel.
There’s nothing you could say or try to do
To keep me from taking this out on you
I know it’s not fine, it don’t make sense
Today I feel like being a bitch(x4)

Don’t ask me what’s wrong, why can’t you tell?
Why are you good for, why are you here?
Is it too much for you to be considerate?
( baby, I love you!
Please!)
You’re full of it and you’re supposed to be so big and tough
But you can’t handle when the things get rough
Your momma should have said every day is like this
When I feel like being a bitch.

I know I don’t have other reason why,
It’s just how I feel at the time,
I really don’t feel need the feel to lie,
I just wanna say what I feel.
There’s nothing you could say or try to do
To keep me from taking this out on you
I know it’s not fine, it don’t make sense
Today I feel like being a bitch(x4)

This is another side of me
Where i don’t have to be so kind,
Where I can say what’s on my mind.
Can you handle this side of me?
Can you deal with the days like these,
When I feel like being a bitch?

What’s wrong with ya? What’s wrong with ya? What’s wrong with ya? Baby, what’s wrong?
What’s wrong with ya? What’s wrong with ya? What’s wrong? Something’s gotta be wrong.
There’s nothing wrong with me. There’s nothing wrong with me. Tell me why it’s gotta be wrong?
There’s nothing wrong with me. There’s nothing wrong with me.
Today I feel like being a bitch.
What?!
