I know any other girl would be in jail.
Don't know how I did it, but I slept my way out of hell.
I've hurt so many men, I can't even begin to tell,
I can't do nothin' 'bout it now.

(Yeah) And that's how I got where I'm not, (Yeah) That's how I got where I'm not,
(Yeah) That's how I got where I'm not, today. (Oh yeah!)
(Oh yeah) That's how I got where I'm not, (Okay) That's how I got where I'm not,
(That's right) That's how I got where I'm not, and now I'm okay,

I stopped hangin' with friends when they got locked up.
My girls got married as soon as they were all knocked up.
Well I made the right wrong moves so my life doesn't suck.
And they're all saying "What the....?" (Oh yeah),

That's how I got where I'm not, (Uh huh) That's how I got where I'm not,
(Do tell) That's how I got where I'm not, today. (Oh yeah!)
(Uh huh) That's how I got where I'm not, (Say what?) That's how I got where I'm not,
(That's right) That's how I got where I'm not, and now I'm okay,

And I don't regret who I am, I've had so much fun along the way,
If I seem trouble free, it's a game of life I've learned to play,
There's just lessons everywhere and I'm a protégé, just a protégé,

(Oh yeah) That's how I got where I'm not, (Say what?) That's how I got where I'm not,
(Oh yeah) That's how I got where I'm not, today. (Hmm)
(Oh yeah) That's how I got where I'm not, (That's right) That's how I got where I'm not,
(You got it) That's how I got where I'm not, and now I'm okay,

(Oh yeah) That's how I got where I'm not, (Uh huh) That's how I got where I'm not,
(That's right) That's how I got where I'm not, today.
(Oh yeah) That's how I got where I'm not, (That's right) That's how I got where I'm not,
(You got it) That's how I got where I'm not, and now I'm okay,

(Oh yeah) That's how I got where I'm not, (Say what?) That's how I got where I'm not,
(Oh yeah) That's how I got where I'm not, today. (Hmm)
(Oh yeah) That's how I got where I'm not, (That's right) That's how I got where I'm not,
(You got it) That's how I got where I'm not, and now I'm okay,
