Aretha Franklin – Don't Play That Song (You Lied) lyrics

Don't play that song for me
'Cuz it brings back memories
Old days that I once knew
The days that I spent with you

Oh no! Don't let them play it
It fills my heart with pain
Please stop it right away
'Cuz I remember just what he said

He said, "Darling"
And I know that he lied
You know that you lied
You know that you lied, lied, you lied

Hey mister don't play it no more
Don't play it no more
I can't stand it
Don't play it no more, no more, no more

I remember on our first date
He kissed me and he walked away
I was only seventeen
I never dreamed he'd be so mean

He told me, "Darling"
Baby, baby, you lied
You, you lied
You know that you lied, lied, lied

Oh darling, you know that you lied, yeah
You know I know you lied
Darling, you lied, you lied, you lied
You're all that I need

You lied
Oh, you lied
Hey baby don't play it no more, don't do it
Don't play it no more, no more
I can't stand it no more
Ooh hey! Don't play it no more
