THIS IS A TRUE STORY 

Loretta, wrote a love letter to a stranger 
Thought that he would change her life 
Thought she would be his wife, oh  Loretta 
Never ever meant him no danger, her love for him sustained her 
Thought that he would change her life 

Miss Loretta, a young girl, I never really met her
A fun girl, a real go-getter, I heard a gold Jetta 
A full with books & herb or so I´m told, hooked on my every word 
Oh so bold, a love letter cleverly worded in a jacket pocket 
Wrapped inside a platinum locket 
In the shape of a heart with pictures of me 
Had it inscribed, "No us, no him then no me"
She fell in love with the Prince of Bel-Air 
Fantasy was to see me and to be with me there 
So she wrote a love letter to me and then she signed it, "Loretta"
Said, "I gotta go get him, Will is my soulmate" 
We gotta be together, how could we not be together 
But wait, if I send the letter 
I mean, how will I be sure if they give it to him 
What if they don´t give it to him, that would ruin everything 
I gotta take it to him myself 

Loretta, wrote a love letter to a stranger 
Thought that he would change her life 
Thought she would be his wife, oh Loretta 
Never ever meant him no danger, her love for him sustained her 
Thought that he would change her life 

She packed all that she owned into the back of her Jetta
Her backpack, her cellphone and a love letter 
Most of her stuff was done up with pictures of me on it 
With the phrase, "It´s gonna be" on it 
Her mother begging her, please come home and then Loretta resenting her 
"Leave me alone Ma! I won´t leave my destiny unfulfilled"
You´re just jealous because Daddy ain´t as sweet as my Will" [click]
To the front gate at NBC, in June and July, backstage at MTV
She would drive anyplace that they´d mention I´d be 
Told herself, strive for love and God eventually 
He would give me to her and her to me, this was meant to be 
Fourteen months outside every event that I´d be at
She´d still keep missing me 
And now she´s getting high with more frequency now 
Rage rumbling inside, got to be with me now 
Then she heard I married Jada, she took her love letter out and wrote down
"P.S., I hate her"

Kodak Center, where the Oscars is at
She´s asleep, getting woke up by the cops in the back 
By a dumpster, didn´t even greet `em with fear
Grinning ear to ear, said "My husband's meeting me here" 
"You know him, he´s nominated for his flick 'Ali' 
And it´ll be hell to pay if you pick on me!" 
"Don´t put that stick on me!  Hell no I´m not leaving, get your hands 
Off me, don´t make those things click on me!!" 
Kicking and screaming, "You intervening, this is fate
Mister, what you mean that I ain´t?" 
"What you mean it seems like I ain´t" 
"Ooh, you're like my Mom and our love is gonna survive ya´ll hate
God gon´ take me to my destiny" 
"Ya´ll only seeing one side of me, Will gon´ see the rest of me
He gon´ see the best of me" 
"If I could only get him next to me
He gon´ bring my blessings to me, I know it"
