Go away come back another day
Don't bother me

I heard about you from my friend
The word really gets around
They say you broke the heart
Of every boy in town
They say you like to cheat
They say you just a little fake
And if I fall for you
I'm surely going to get hurt
Don't bother me now
Go away girl stay out of my arms
Don't try to use your charms
Don't bother me
But I really got to say
You look so fine
Yeah you know you are so hard to resist
But I know I gotta stay away
Or I might fall for you
And I don't want to be any to your needs
So now I say
Don't bother me now
Go away girl
I fear if I kissed you
I might not resist you
Don't bother me
Don't bother me now
Go away girl
