I Can Tell

This song is by Monifah and appears on the album Home (2000).

Monifah talking: ah, feels good
Ah don't don't go there,
Ah your not fooling me
Listen

Verse 1: by the way you dress
By the way you talk
By the friends you keep
The benz you bought
How you treat your ex
How you treat your child
I peeped you style
From half a mile
Would you think of me?
Sleep wit someone else?
Would you take the time
And protect yourself?
Have you lied her?
Would you lie to me?
I can tell if it's meant to be

Chorus: I can tell when guys are all the same (yeah)
I can tell it when they're playin' games. (playin' games)
I can tell what kind of guy you are
I can tell it, I can tell it (I can tell)
I can tell what you really want (what you really want)
I can tell it when it's all a front
Gotta know before I go to far (gotta know b4 I go 2 far)
I can tell it, I can tell it

Verse 2: would you raise your hand?
Would you raise your voice?
Do you act brand new, in front of your boys?
Did you finish school?
Or did you drop-out?
Have you opened up, a bank account?
And if I hang out
At the end of the week
Do I detect a jealous streak?
Do you go for self?
Or you aim to please?
'Cause I can tell
From I see.

Chorus: I can tell when guys are all the same (all the same)
I can tell it when they're playin' games. (playin' games)
I can tell what kind of guy you are
I can tell it, I can tell it (oh, I can tell it, I tell it)
I can tell what you really want (what you really want)
I can tell it when it's all a front
Gotta know before I go to far (gotta know b4 I go 2 far)
I can tell it, I can tell it (no oh no)

Break-down: boy I can see what you try to conceal
And boy I can tell when your keeping it real
If I'm gonna love you
I gotta see straight to your heart

Chorus: I can tell when guys are all the same
I can tell it when they're playin' games.
I can tell what kind of guy you are (what kind of man u r)
I can tell it, I can tell it (if you love me yeah)
I can tell what you really want (I can tell it)
I can tell it when it's all a front (I know you like a book)
Gotta know before I go to far (with just one look)
I can tell it, I can tell it (oh oh oh yeah)
I can tell when guys are all the same (its 'n' your smile)
I can tell it when they're playin' games. (you really smile)
I can tell what kind of guy you are (no oh oh no no)
I can tell it, I can tell it
I can tell what you really want (I can tell by the you walk)
I can tell it when it's all a front (I can tell by the way you talk)
Gotta know before I go to far (gotta know b4 I go 2 far)
I can tell it, I can tell it (how i-i)

I can tell what you really want
