Hit me in the the eye, maybe I can see better
I lost the only girl I ever loved, now I got to forget her
Let me tell you, I found out, oh baby I found out
That you can't you can't you can't
Trust your neighbor with your, baby

You know that friend of mine, he don't live there no more
My baby use to go all out for salt
But I found out he was giving her sugar

I trust him with my baby, the dirty dog, he took her
They said she warns the neighbors that she have him to do you
But my neighbor didn't even have a woman to talk to
That's why, that's, why that's why you can't
Trust your neighbor with your baby

Oh, how I loved the girl, in my heart I still do
Let me tell you, when your neighbor get her
He don't leave to much of you
Let me tell you, I found out, I found out
Can you hear me?

Come on and listen to me now
I found out alright
Let me say it just one more time now y'all
Let me tell you

Let me tell you can't, let me tell you can't
Let me tell you can't, you can't you can't
That you can't you can't you can't
Trust your neighbor with your baby
