Ooh baby 
I want you to listen 
To what I have to say
Baby, yeah

It's so easy for someone 
To tell you something bad about me
'Cause that's what that's what 
Your ears want to hear
Then for someone to tell you
That I'm being a good woman 
And loving you, loving you only my dear

But I'm gonna do the very best I can
To get you to try and understand 
That when you look for trouble 
You're gonna find it somewhere 
And what I want to say hey
Is that

You can't
You can't
You can't see
For looking hey hey hey hey
You can't
You can't
You can't see
For looking hey hey hey hey

Now your boys excuses for friends 
They'll all out to bring you down
And you don't realize 
That's what they are trying to do to you

So you spend most of your time
Just believing me
Swearing, swearing I'm being untrue to you

But I'm not gonna let them
Tear us apart getting next to your jealous heart
 Because I love you daddy 
And I want to make that clear 
And what I want to say hey
Is that

You can't
You can't
You can't see
For looking hey hey hey hey
You can't
You can't
You can't see
For looking hey hey hey hey
You can't
You can't
You can't see
For looking hey hey hey hey
You can't
You can't
You can't see
For looking hey hey hey hey
