The Story Behind Don't Settle

I wrote this song because I wanted to encourage women to stand strong so they do not succumb to the temptation of settling for a man they do not like.  Sometimes as women, we become vulnerable after a break-up or during a dating dry spell. During these moments, we need to pray to God for help so we can withstand the advances of a man who is there at the right place and the right time-----but ALL WRONG for us.  If we give in to Mr. Wrong, we will be settling for less, which is not God's best. Additionally, Mr. Wrong may be wrong for us, but could be right for someone else.  Therefore, it is not a good idea to date Mr. Wrong because he deserves a woman who wants to be with him also.  If we do not like the way he looks; the way he talks; the way he walks; the clothing he wears; his personality; WE SHOULD NOT DATE HIM! We will hurt him in the long run. We will be at fault because we wanted to be in a relationship so badly, and could not wait on God for Mr. Right.

Don't Settle-Song Lyrics

Don't get weak

Cuz he's staring at you

Don't take a peak

Cuz he's wearing a suit

Don't give him a chance

Cuz he's giving you compliments

Don't dance with him

Cuz there's no ring on his hand

You don't want him

So don't try to make it work

Don't talk to him

Cuz he will try to flirt

Don't pretend to try to be his friend

Cuz you know he really wants you and

He'll get hurt in the end

 

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong

Because you're alone

Don't settle cuz you're by yourself now and on your own

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong because he's there

Don't settle cuz he's here right now

No don't you dare

 

Later on you see him again and he's looking good

He is secure and confident in his manhood

He's looking fine cuz he got a makeover

He stopped drinkin'

And you can tell that he's sober

He says he goes to church and sings in the choir

He says he was promoted at work and he's never been fired

He's working hard to impress

Cuz of the way he is dressed

But do not fall for it cuz

He's not the perfect fit

 

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong

Because you're alone

Don't settle cuz you're by yourself now and on your own

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong because he's there

Don't settle cuz he's here right now

No don't you dare

 

He is not the one so you might as well be done

He is not a dime so don't even waste your time

Don't get desperate cuz you haven't met the right guy yet

So dry your tears even though it's been some years

Since you've had a date and you're still waiting for your soulmate

Don't talk to him at all and don't accept his calls

Girl please get a backbone and just leave him alone

Cuz if you settle for less, you will not get the best

 

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong

Because you're alone

Don't settle cuz you're by yourself now and on your own

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong because he's there

Don't settle cuz he's here right now

No don't you dare
