When my friends told me you had someone new
I didn't believe a single word was true
Showed them all, I had a faith in you
I kept on saying

Oh, no, not, not my baby
Oh, no, not my sweet baby
He's not like those other guys
Who lead you on and tell you lies

My mama told me when rumors spread
There's truth somewhere and I should use my head
But I didn't listen to what she said
I stood right there and kept on saying

Oh, no, not, not my baby
Oh, no, not my sweet baby
'Cause he's not like those other boys
To play with hearts like they were toys

He might have had a last minute fling
But I am so sure it didn't mean a thing
'Cause yesterday he gave me a ring
And now I'm so glad that I kept on saying

Oh, no, not, not my baby, no
Oh, no, no, no, not my sweet baby
He's not like those other guys
Who lead you on, who tell you lies

Oh, no, not, not my baby
Oh, no, not my sweet baby
Oh, no, not my baby
Oh, no, not
