I hear ya knockin' baby at my door, but you don't live here no more,
Oh no, I think he made his move too soon.

I never try to make the news, I'm just a man who sings those low down blues,
I'll take my lovin everywhere, I come back to know they still care,
One lover here, one love behind, one in my arms, one on my mind,
One thing baby never make a move too soon

Yeah baby, never make your move too soon,
Well you can count on this baby, we never make a move too soon
(Too soon)
