Hey you were good at playing the fox girl
When I was good you threw me a bone
But I ain't playing hot for nobody 
Girl just you wait 'til I get you home
I'll show you the way to love somebody 
Like you've never ever been shown before

 Cause my love light's burning 
My whole life's yearning for you
Hey baby you were playing the part with Jimmy and Freddie 
You tried to make me look like a fool
But I took care of Cindy and Susie 
Just to show you I can be twice as cool baby

If you want to learn how to love me
I'll teach you in my own private school
 Cause my love love lights burning
My whole life's yearning for you

You met you your match 
When you play with my affection 
You met you your match 
When you tried to make me walk the line
When you decided you would hurt me
That's when your grape feel off the vine

Your mama told me that I better be mellow 
She said you're just a baby maybe too green 
I told her Jimmy, Freddie, Teddy and Victor 
They know better 
Mama shake off that dream 
I told her that you were really cooking
My love is burning for a turn at the steam 

Hey, cause 
My love light's burning 
My whole life's yearning for you
You met your match 
When you told me you loved me
You met your match 
When you told me that you wouldn't let go

You met your match 
You met your match 
You met your match 
You met your match 
You met your match 
You met your match 
You met your match 
Baby

You met your match 
You met your match 
You met your match 
You met your match 
You met your match 
You met your match 
You met your match 
Baby
