Ring the Alarm Lyrics

Ring the alarm
I been through this too long
But I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm
Won't you ring the alarm
I been through this too long
But I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm

She gon' be rockin'...

    You know when a woman and a man are together they kind of change each other. I think she feels like she had changed him into the man he is today and she doesn't want another woman to just sit back and enjoy what she created(if you can say it that way). Like when she says "ring the alarm, I been through this too long, buti'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm".

    I think the meaning of the song is that the man doesn't deserve to be happy and go away of what he did.
    "I can't let you go", because he has something that she owns, her right- and she wont let any other girl steal that thing.
    You can't stay, you gotta go. (This proves that she aint trippin for the GUY, but something from that guy)
    Ain't no other chicks Spending your dough.

    She wants revenge, she doesnt want to get back with the guy, she wants the guy to suffer.

    The guy she was in love with has totally messed her round

    hes been cheatin her

    but she loves him and doesn't want to let go

    shes basically angry and furious that the guy she's lovin is cheatin

    she hates him and loves him at the same time

    she doesn't want the chick he's cheatin her with to be spendin her money and getting her things

    shes angry and she's raging because she's been playedddd

    and that's what I think she's saying
