  1. Lyrics to: Hate to Say I Told You So

    O What I Want Cause I Can And If I Don’t

    Because I Wanna Be

    Ignored By The Stiff And The Bored

    Because I’M Gonna.

    Spit And Retrieve Cause I Give And Receive

    Because I Wanna

    Gonna Get Through Your Head What The Mystery Man Said

    Because I’M Gonna.

    Hate To Say I Told You So.

    Alright Come On.

    I Do Believe I Told You So.

    Now It’s All Out And You Knew Cause I Wanted To.

    Turn My Back On The Rot That’s Been Planning The Plot –

    Because I’M Gonna.

    No Need For Me To Wait –

    Because I Wanna.

    No Need Two, Three And Too Late –

    Because I’M Gonna.

    Hate To Say I Told You So.

    Alright Come On.

    I Do Believe I Told You So.

    Do What I Please Gonna Spread The Disease

    Because I Wanna

    Gonna Call All The Shots For The Nos And The Nots

    Because I Wanna.

    Ask Me Once I’Ll Answer Twice Cause What I Know I’Ll Tell

    Because I Wanna.

    Sound Device And Lots Of Ice I’Ll Spell My Name Out Loud

    Because I Wanna, Oh Yeah
