Stop! In the name of love
 Before you break my heart 
Baby, baby
I'm aware of where you go
Each time you leave my door
I watch you walk down the street  Knowing your other love you'll meet
But this time before you run to her
 Leaving me alone and hurt
(Think it over) After I've been good to you ?
(Think it over) After I've been sweet to you ?
Stop! In the name of love
 Before you break my heart 
Stop! In the name of love
 Before you break my heart  Think it over
 Think it over
I've known of your
Your secluded nights
I've even seen her
 Maybe once or twice 
But is her sweet expression
 Worth more than my love and affection ?
But this time before you leave my arms
And rush of to her charms 
(Think it over) Haven't I been good to you ?
(Think it over) Haven't I been sweet to you ?
Stop! In the name of love
 Before you break my heart 
Stop! In the name of love
 Before you break my heart  Think it over
 Think it over
I've tried so hard, hard to be patient  Hoping you'd stop this infatuation 
But each time you are together 
I'm so afraid I'll be losing you forever 
Stop! In the name of love
 Before you break my heart 
Stop! In the name of love
 Before you break my heart 
Stop! In the name of love
 Before you break my heart 
Baby, think it over
 Think it over, baby
Ooh, think it over baby
