If you want something to play with
Go and find yourself a toy
'Cause baby, my time is too expensive
And I'm not a little boy, no, no

If you are serious, little girl, little girl, little girl
Then don't play with my heart, it makes me furious
Ooh, oh, but if want me to love you
Then, baby, I will, girl, you know I that will

Tell it like it is
Don't be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide
But I, lord I know deep down inside of me
I believe you love me, forget your foolish pride

You know life is too short, lord, to have sorrow, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah
You may be here today and gone, gone, baby, gone tomorrow
So you might as well get what you want
So go on and live, baby-baby, baby-baby, go on and live

Tell it like it is
I'm nothing to play with, girl you better find yourself a toy
But I know deep down inside of me
I believe you love me, but I'm not your little boy, oh

Tell it like it is
Oh, and I love you, oh, I love you, oh, I love you
Lord, I love you, my darling, there is nothing I can do about it
