[Intro (Spoken): Queen Latifah]

Dana Owens aka Queen Latifah, yes, I'm here to testify

No, I gotta speak on my behalf

You don't even know what happened

Can I just tell you what happened?

[Hook: Macy Gray] (Queen Latifah)

He had it comin' (He had it comin')

He only had himself to blame

If you'd've been there, if you'd've seen it

I think that you would have done the same

[Verse 1: Queen Latifah] (Macy Gray)

I mean imagine, why was he hittin' his woman?

Why was she takin' that? Now picture her fightin' back

Think of the a** kickin', think of his a** flippin' down the stairs

And me at the top smilin', he shoulda stopped wildin'

Now could you picture me tryin' to finish him off?

See why I pictured me on this side of the law

High heels leave holes, you'd-a thought I was gunnin'

Now the cops comin', I ain't runnin' (He had it comin')

Girl, you shoulda seen it, shoulda bobbed and weaved

Before the cops came, got a couple of clean hits

In word the [?] couldn't take the abuse

But I couldn't explain that to the state troops

But you know, girl, yeah, you go girl

Plus I look real cute in orange jumpsuits

This the story I'm tellin' and I ain't changin' nothin'

I just needed you to know, Your Honor

[Hook: Macy Gray] (Queen Latifah)

He had it comin' (He had it comin')

He only had himself to blame

If you'd've been there, if you'd've seen it

I think that you would have done the same

[Hook: Macy Gray] (Queen Latifah)

He had it comin' (He had it comin')

He only had himself to blame

If you'd've been there, if you'd've seen it

I think that you would have done the same

[Verse 2: Lil' Kim] (Macy Gray)

Aight, aight, let's get this over with

Take the mug shot, hurry up the fingerprints, what, the blood clot?

Lil' Kim aka Sofia Luchiani

Keep your jumpsuit, I'm rockin' Armani

Yeah, I bust at him once, but that was just a warnin'

My lawyer will be here with bail money in the mornin'

I'm not guilty, just tryin' to protect mine

It ain't my fault he ran into my knife 20 times (He had it comin')

Just my luck the bastard ain't die

What you woulda did if every other day he blacked your eye?

Broke your nose 'til it started bleedin'

Kicked you in your ribs, choked you 'til you stopped breathin'

f** that, I'm sick of bobbin' and weavin'

Him threatenin' to k** me when I threaten to leave him

I do a bid, cause ain't no way

(n***a) gonna do me like Ike and OJ

[Hook: Macy Gray]

He had it comin' (Comin')

He only had himself to blame

If you'd've been there, if you'd've seen it

I think that you would have done the same

[Hook: Macy Gray]

He had it comin' (C omin')

He only had himself to blame

If you'd've been there, if you'd've seen it

I think that you would have done the same

[Verse 3: Queen Latifah (Macy Gray)]

This is for the constantly accused, mentally abused

How many of you been in my shoes before (aight)

Or have you felt you caught the worse case

Puttin' up with his tired a** in the first place

Why am I flippin'? I just bought them condoms

I ain't used not one but there was two missin'

Made a new mission, how to catch a cheater

If he only use Coast, you shouldn't smell Lever (He had it comin')

If you know he don't smoke, you shouldn't smell reefer

If you catch him cheatin' you shouldn't yell either

Run up on him quietly, choke him out silently

It might sound cruel, but you gotta love the irony

So explain that, just came back off a trip

And I come home to this, please

He ain't followed the guidelines

So forgive me, Your Honor, but he ran into my knife five times

[Hook: Macy Gray]

He had it comin' (Comin')

He only had himself to blame

If you'd've been there, if you'd've seen it

I think that you would have done the same

[Hook: Macy Gray]

He had it comin' (Comin')

He only had himself to blame

If you'd've been there, if you'd've seen it

I think that you would have done the same

[Hook: Macy Gray]

He had it comin' (Comin')

He only had himself to blame

If you'd've been there, if you'd've seen it
