​You Reap What You Sow

This song is by Smooth and appears on the album Smooth & Legit (1990).

You can't judge a man by his cover
As all women soon will discover
They say they're whack and there's a feedback
Intelligence that a woman don't lack, yo
They're all around talking a drag
Talk about the girlies that they always have had
But it's time for me to set them straight
Yeah, to demonstrate that I can penetrate the mind
I can use you up to the blind
Play it really cool to make you think that you're mine
Then let you go and let you find someone new and she'll diss you too
Treat you bad and treat you like a fool
But oh yo, I can't respect when I find a man I put him in check
That's how it'll go cause you reap what you sow
You reap what you sow, what you do comes back to you

I said I'd never do it but I did it anyway
I fell in love with this fellow one day
He said that he'd love me, truly he did
That we were getting married and we would have kids
I didn't know the things, the things that he was doing
I'm the one that's usually fooling
Everybody told me that it was down
That what goes around it will come back around
Well, guys say girl, girl, nothing but trouble
But it goes that way it goes the way double
Your strategy, played like no other
Everybody warned me even my mother
Reigning supreme, you know what I mean
I was sprung, not addicted more like a feen
He dissed me smooth, that's how it goes, you reap what you sow
You reap what you sow, what you do comes back to you
You reap what you sow

You reap what you sow
What goes up must come down
Just like what goes around comes back around
You know what you dish you also got to eat
Cause everything in your life is on a two way streak
Don't overpark, yeah, you get a ticket
If you know what I'm saying don't be wicked
Love 'em to leave em, make 'em to break em
You say you wanna love em, now you fake em
I don't know how to express or should I say confess
You say you wanna get with me, try and see what it can be
Try to diss a girl, not knowing this is a woman's world
Well, that is how it will go cause you reap what you sow
You reap what you sow, what you do comes back to you
You reap what you sow
You reap what you sow, what you do comes back to you
You reap what you sow
