Utada Hikaru - Taking My Money Back Lyrics




Boy you make it hard, you make it hard to leave
Boy you make it hard, you're no good for me

Everyday, everynight, you were out, with your boys
Getting high
While I worked hard to pay the rent
And my girls said I should lose you but I stuck with you
'Cause you promised to change

What I gave, you took, nothing came in return
But I, I kept on giving baby
'Cause the sex was so good, and your talk was so smooth
That I, I guess I bought it baby

Now I finally see you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
Get down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

I'm singing ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
You know I really loved you boy
Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
What a waste of a man so fine

What about, out about all your fooling around
While I, I had to cry about it
Then you said you're sorry and you loved me only
I should have left you right then

Now I finally see you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
Get down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

I'm singing ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
You know I really loved you boy
Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
What a waste of a man so fine

Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
Give me back my heart, give me back my time
Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
What a waste of a woman so fine

Now I finally see you were using me
And I'm taking my money, my money, my money back
Get down on your knees, begging me not to leave
But I'm taking my money, my money, my money back

Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
Give me back my heart, give me back my time
Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
What a waste of a woman so fine

Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
Give me back my heart, give me back my time
Ooh ooh ooh, and ah ah ah
What a waste of a woman so fine

Utada Hikaru Taking My Money Back Comments
  1. Uni-cats

    I looked for this song everywhere I forgot the name and I finally found it... it brings me back memories from over 8 years ago <3 I love utada

  2. TheRu5tyNaiL

    Lol only in Italy can a useless lowly bartender marry a Japanese pop superstar

  3. Jen Jen

    Can anyone tell me what is the kind of music of this song please?
    I really love it so much

  4. B Jenkins

    Alot of women need to hear this song....

  5. Mitch sifuentes

    I’m taking my money back muy buena canción no la saco de mi mente !!!!

  6. lela anaya

    Omg now I can finally relate

  7. dragonslayer0215

    Damn hikaru who hurt you girl I’ll mess em up

    Magical Panda

    We know now with her divorce from that Italian guy that it must be him. He quitted his job after they married, and it's unlikely he was dedicated househusband because he loved to show off his glamorous life on insta with his friends, acting like a rich single bachelor. She reportedly was the one who paid for everything from rent to bills to expensive gifts for him. I guess she got tired of playing sugar-momma, hence the divorce.
    Her songs about deep love these days are dedicated to her son.

  8. Todo 1996

    The beat reminds me of Aaliyah. Fun fact Utada got to interview Aaliyah way back in 2000.

  9. TheeCocoaJoJo

    This is so relevant right now.

  10. 이명후

    80 pain 20 control work

  11. 이명후

    kusually korea attck but you can attack

  12. 이명후

    idk i just transfered in gateport. and who got your offensive charactet i think im not look around me

  13. 이명후

    i like dumb beautiful

  14. Stupid Child

    Hikaru Utada invented trap music, what an idol

  15. Patrick Batemans Waifu

    STILL A BANGER!! FIREE AF 2017

  16. Prinnydoodz

    If you put this song together with "me muero" it tells a 2 part story about A woman being depressed and suicidal about losing her lover and then getting over it and becoming way stronger

    Utada always makes so beautiful music....

  17. kun yup

    i love this one

  18. Delaine Butler

    YASSSSS such a good song

  19. Z D

    they deprived this from destinys child... "...but today's ain't the same..."

    safari0317

    +Zahrah Dinkins say my name from DC?

  20. Yuma N

    I love this song but I can't sing at Karaoke because the part "'cause the sex was so good" makes me shy.

    John Grady

    +YumaMediumwood It's how people are made, embrace it. Nobody wants bad sex lol

  21. Paloma Diaz

    its "you´re down on your knees" not get down...

  22. Raven Grey

    I love her

  23. ジョネーJonét

    Best song off that awful album. :D

    Misa K

    The whole album was pretty good to me (:

    ジョネーJonét

    @Marie K yeah, there were some solid tracks, like this one and Come Back to Me, and maybe others I can't remember, but I still feel it could've been better somehow.

  24. prudhvi raj

    Wooooooo nice vocals

  25. ATHE NENENE

    I like the song except the part about sex. Its just not nessacary.

    JizzingTiger SquirtingDragon

    Who cares, sex is life learn to deal with it.

    John Grady

    +Scykohtik Child This song is about an emotional relationship based on a guy using her for sex and money. It's pretty necessary

  26. Jessica Sica

    great song

  27. M A S H U P G A W D // Harper

    This is really my song <333

  28. Epifanio Carmona

    Me encanta hikaru

  29. sekutip hati

    私はこの歌が大好きです。この曲は聞いて非常に良いです。

    kari driel

    sekutip hati 僕も大好きです

  30. CrystallizeAirTebu

    love this song

  31. Ty Monae

    As much as everyone wants that to be true I don't think that will ever be the case. Since she's on a hiatus (luckily there are rumors she's coming back soon so maybe she will get the praise she deserves c: )

  32. Dxllie

    You Don't Say ?

  33. alexa ganoza

    Desde aqui de peru te admiro muchoo a ti y tu papel.. eres unica... i love u

  34. Mia Demaya

    I wish I could write songs as good as her.Maybe she has been through this stuff so she can descrube it like her song first love or final distance(witch reminds me of my boyfriend cause we live far apart) or eazy breazy I don`t see how anyone could use her tho she`s so talented and pretty I wish I could be like her!

    coletaku

    Mia Demaya 5 year update?

  35. Arief Hidayat

    Hmmmm...

  36. MoarPewPewPlz

    I thought this song would be weird, but it was actually more than decent. I shouldn't judge a song by its title I guess haha

  37. Maximum Blue

    I know,but the rest of the world doesn't seem to be giving her the praise she clearly deserves.

  38. Xiaodan Guo

    she is such a hit in Japan,and all over Asia

  39. Maximum Blue

    Utada will one day have huge mainstream success.She is just to good of a singer to not get noticed.

  40. DenmiSama

    Damn Utada's a G... An Emo one but a G none-the-less.......

  41. zero5xo

    This song deserves more publicity.

  42. Krixstal Zagukarexst

    Me too, awesome

  43. Alo C.

    haha thats how my name is exactly spelled, but i agree totally

  44. Chase Gran

    Listen to these lyrics...they're a bit uninspired. This is the worst written song on the album, although somehow I still love it!

  45. Ty Monae

    Omgosh Big bang's Haru Haru was the very first kpop song i ever heard! Big Bang will always have a special spot in my heart though Shinee's my favorite <3 Shawol for life. I love kpop so much

  50. Mariah Carey Fan For Life

    This reminds me of "Say My Name" by Destiny Childs.

  52. Keshia Timmermans

  53. Catherine

  56. Blackangeldragon

    There should be a 'love button'!

  57. anema510

  61. Brandon Allen

    if you leson all here songs sound like someonesels song

  62. Annabel Blabla

    better than beyonce :D

  63. Hope Kasey Martin

    I love her songs, hummm and this one my whole family can relate via my ex step father. I'll learn from my mothers mistake. FYI Girls: dating pot heads = no no unless u dont mind free loaders. Six years to change and still hasn't. Now he's on his own. To bad. (Now, those that smoke weed occasionally but still work and provide, they are okay. Let it be known I'm not discriminating against all those who smoke.)

  64. Hope Kasey Martin

    Gahh.. I love her songs. My whole family can relate to this song via my ex step dad. Seriously! What loser he was. I'll learn from my mothers mistake tyvm!

  65. LandAhoy

    @TheYinWarrior it could just be someone who wanted to like it but accidentally disliked it..\=

  66. Nabihah Rahim

    This is the first time i heard hikaru-chan sing such sexy song... uhhh ==' but i like the song :)

  67. TheYinWarrior

    the person who dislike this song has a sad life. he must be that boy who only take money from girls. hope he dies without any marriage and go to hell, however grim reaper might not let him come down to hell

  68. l1meyman

    at first i didn't like the song... but in the span of 3 minutes and 13 seconds... i turned into a believer... Utada can do that do you :) what a cool song

  69. rebecca li

    sexy voice =) inspiring song...

  70. zRibzyMitzy7

    @xSasukexNarutox It reminded me more of R.Kelly. After hearing this song, I thought they should have made a song together.

  71. tuantje

    I listened to the song carefully, but I hear at 1:03, that she's not singin: I'm singing.
    But something like : I'm beggin.
    I might be wrong, but I can't hear : I'm singing
    Love the song though<3

  72. marmar1911

    i love love this song and utada is awsome

  73. Tina ho

    smoothing song ;D

  74. คบเด็กสร้างหนัง

    The phase "...all you fooling around while I, had to cry about it" ...isn't it "[what a lie] I had to cry about it"?

  75. shinewin

    hahha...kind of like BILLs, Bills, Bills, form destiny child.

  76. Alexandra Phoenix

    It reminds me of a specific Aaliyah song, but i can't think of it. hmmmm.....

  77. leehuabcichristy

    this is a wonderful song
    love hiki!
