–> Sorry for the Stupid Things

This song is by Babyface and appears on the album Grown & Sexy (2005).
Sometimes we wish for the better
When we have it good as it gets
Sometimes the grass isn’t greener
As soon as we find out, we forget
Sometimes a fool doesn’t know he’s a fool
Sometimes a dog, he don’t know he’s a dog
Sometimes I do stupid things to you
When I really don’t mean it at all
Sometimes a man is gon’ be a man
Its not an excuse, its just how it is
Sometimes a wrong, don’t know that they wrong
Sometimes the strong, ain’t always so strong
Sometimes a girl is gon’ be a girl
She don’t want to deal with all the drama in your world
God knows I don’t mean to give it to you
So girl, I’m sorry for the stupid things
I wish I didn’t do but I do
Oh
Oh no
Oh
Sometimes I wish I was smarter
Wish I was a bit more like you
Not making stupid decisions made at the last minute
You live to regret when its through
Well sometimes a fool, doesn’t know he’s a fool
And sometimes a dog, he don’t know he’s a dog
But sometimes I do stupid things to you
When I really didn’t mean it at all
Sometimes a man is gon’ be a man
Its not an excuse, its just how it is
Sometimes a wrong, don’t know that they wrong
Sometimes the strong, can’t always be strong
Sometimes a girl, is gon’ be a girl
She don’t want to deal with all the drama in your world
God knows I don’t mean to give it to you
So girl, I’m sorry for the stupid things
I wish I didn’t do but I do
Sometimes a fool doesn’t know he’s a fool
And sometimes a dog, he don’t know he’s a dog
But sometimes I do stupid things to you
When I really didn’t mean it at all
At all . . .at all
Sometimes a man is gon’ be a man
Its not an excuse, its just how it is
Sometimes a wrong, don’t know that they wrong
Sometimes the strong, ain’t always so strong
Sometimes a girl, is gon’ be a girl
She don’t want to deal with all the drama in your world
God knows I don’t mean to give it to you girl
So girl I’m sorry for the stupid things
I wish I didn’t do but I do
Sometimes a man is gon’ be a man
Its not an excuse, its just how it is
Sometimes a wrong, don’t know that they wrong
Sometimes the strong, ain’t always so strong
Sometimes a girl, is gon’ be a girl
She don’t want to deal with all the drama in your world
God knows I don’t mean to give it to you girl
So girl I’m sorry for the stupid things
I wish I didn’t do but I do

Edmonds later played with funk performer Bootsy Collins, who tagged him “Babyface” because of his youthful look. He also performed in the group Manchild (which had a 1977 hit “Especially for You” with band member Daryl Simmons) as a guitarist. He played keyboards in the light-funk and R&B group the Deele (which also included drummer Antonio “L.A.” Reid, with whom he would later form a successful writing and producing partnership). One of his first major credits as a songwriter for outside artists came when he wrote the tune “Slow Jam” for the R&B band Midnight Star in 1983. The tune was on Midnight Star’s 1983 double-platinum No Parking on the Dance Floor album, and while it never was a single, it received massive radio airplay and the song is still played on quiet storm radio stations.[citation needed] Babyface remained in the Deele until 1988, when both he and Reid left the group.
His album Playlist consists of eight cover songs and two original works. It was released on September 18, 2007. It was the first album on the newly re-launched Mercury Records label.
On February 4, 2014, he released a Grammy Awards winning duets album with Toni Braxton titled Love, Marriage & Divorce on Motown Records.
Writing and producing[edit]
In the late 1980s, he contributed to the creation of new jack swing, writing and producing music for the likes of Bobby Brown, Karyn White, Pebbles, Paula Abdul and Sheena Easton.
In 1989, Edmonds co-founded LaFace Records with Reid. Three of the label’s early artists TLC, Usher, and Toni Braxton were very successful. TLC’s second album CrazySexyCool, for which he wrote and produced some of the hits, became the best selling album of all time by an American girl group. Toni Braxton’s first two albums, Toni Braxton (1993) and Secrets (1996), for which he wrote the majority of the songs, went on to sell a combined total of over 10 million copies in America alone.
Babyface helped form the popular late-1990s R&B group Az Yet. Edmonds also helped to mold and worked closely with some of his former wife Tracey Edmonds acts such as Jon B and producer Jon-John Robinson.
Edmonds has worked with many successful performers in contemporary music. “I’m Your Baby Tonight” (1990), produced for Whitney Houston, was his first No. 1 Top 40 hit in the US. He also wrote and produced Boyz II Men’s 1992 “End of the Road” and 1994 “I’ll Make Love to You”, both of which established records for the longest stay at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He co-wrote, co-produced, and provided backing vocals on Madonna’s 1994 Bedtime Stories, which featured the seven-week No. 1 hit “Take a Bow”, and shared billing with Eric Clapton on the chart-topping Grammy winner “Change the World” from the Phenomenon soundtrack. He also wrote and produced the No. 1 hit “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” for Whitney Houston as well as the rest of the critically acclaimed 10 million-selling Waiting to Exhale soundtrack in 1995, which spawned additional hits for Houston, Brandy and Mary J. Blige.
Additionally, Edmonds has produced and written music for many artists including Carole King, Jessica Mauboy, Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Faith Evans, Al Green, Beyoncé, Diana Ross, Sheena Easton, Toni Braxton, Michael Jackson, Michael Bolton, Paula Abdul, Eric Clapton, Pebbles, Tevin Campbell, Bobby Brown, Whitney Houston, Brandy, Mary J. Blige, Tamia, Shola Ama, 3T, Sisqó, Dru Hill, Fall Out Boy, Céline Dion, Samantha Jade, Honeyz, Katharine McPhee, Mariah Carey, Vanessa L. Williams, Chanté Moore, En Vogue, Zendaya, Kenny G, Kristinia DeBarge, Lil Wayne, Japanese singer Ken Hirai, P!nk, Colbie Caillat, Marc Nelson, TLC, Ariana Grande, Ella Henderson, Jessica Mauboy, Xscape, K-Ci & JoJo, N’SYNC and Phil Collins among others. He received three consecutive Grammy Awards for Producer of the Year in 1995–1997.
