Mark Morrison - Return of the Mack (Official Music Video)

The song is the most successful single ever recorded by Mark Morrison, and it stayed in the European top 10 charts for several weeks. It’s a perfect example of the 90s r&b style, representing for many the most fascinating phase of that genre.

The song’s lyrics are about the disappointment of a breakup. The artist sings about a girl who broke his heart and lied to him while he was fully involved in that relationship. And with that disappointment, Mark Morrison decided to become again the man he was before, who switches from one girl to another without emotional involvement. A mack, in urban slang. The return of the mack is what happened after that girl broke his heart.

You lied to me
All those times I said that I loved you
You lied to me
Yes, I tried, yes I tried
You lied to me
Even though you knew I’d die for you
You lied to me
Yes, I cried, yes I cried
