 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Good thing, good thing, good thing, good thing)

Well you been cheatin' on me big day you know I know it's true
But there ain't nobody in the whole wide world could love you like I do
Don't be no fool (don't you be no fool) don't be no fool (don't you be no fool)
You gonna keep on foolin' around now baby you gonna mess up a good thing
You gonna mess up a good thing

Now I might have been cheated just a little bit baby like all the others do
Oh but when I get my paycheck mama I bring it on home to you
Don't be no fool...

(Good thing good thing good thing good thing)

They tell me you got a nighttime lover a livin' away cross town
And there'd gonna be but a little while baby before you cut me down
Don't be no fool...

Now don't you come sneakin' across town baby to catch me a doin' you wrong
'Cause you know everybody's jealous baby we got a thing goin' on
Don't you be no fool...
(Good thing good thing good thing good thing)
