(Intro)

It's not the first nor the last, so, so much pretty girl a pass and
Holding out is such a task, that's why me a seh this from mi heart

(Chorus)
Oh Lord, don't let me cheat on my girlfriend, cause as far as I can see,
She loves only me,
Oh Lord, don't let me cheat on my girlfriend, but Lord if you can't stop me
From cheating, just don't let me get caught
No, no, no, don't let me get caught
Nooo, don't let me get caught(no no noo)
Said I hope I don't get caught

(Verse 1)
So listen to me now, it's such a sticky situation
Me promise my girl fi only look inna her direction
But everywhere me turn me see a next one(gosh) and me body get weak and a
Ball fi attention
I only wanna give the girls what they want, my lady says I'm wrong but she
Would understand
I don't want to lie but I don't want to cry
Yo I'm so very weak inside

(Chorus)
Oh Lord, don't let me cheat on my girlfriend, cause as far as I can see,
She loves only me,
Oh Lord, don't let me cheat on my girlfriend(please don't met me cheat),
But Lord if you can't stop me from cheating(if you), just don't let me get
Caught

Said I hope I don't get caught(please nuh mek she catch me Lord)

Yo, a nuh like me nuh try, I love my baby, but the girls them still deh pan

Another guy(yuh mad)
And yo it hard, yo it hard, yo it hard to have one girl, it kinda rough fi
Play the part
She woulda lef me if she knew what's in my thoughts
I hope I never pay that cost.

(Chorus)
Oh Lord, don't let me cheat on my girlfriend(please nuh mek me cheat),
Cause as far as I can see, she loves only me,
Oh Lord, don't let me cheat on my girlfriend(oh no), but Lord if you can't
Stop me from cheating(if you can stop me Lord), just don't let me get
Caught
Neva ever, don't let me get caught
Neva ever don't let me get caught(nuh mek she catch me)
Said I hope I don't get caught(hope I don't)

So listen to me now, she seh bun she never mek fi it

Suh when me sidung and me meddy it, just can't mek she know seh she getting

One girl to a man, so we setting it
But fi we have one girl we keep forgetting it
Never get caught yet, we think we making it
I hope we don't end up regretting it

(Chorus)
Oh Lord, don't let me cheat on my girlfriend, cause as far as I can see,
She loves only me,
Oh Lord, don't let me cheat on my girlfriend, but Lord if you can't stop me
From cheating, just don't let me get caught...

    This is a profound philosophical work by Mr. Martin, much better than his Coldplay stuff, but it only really scratches the surface of this complex subject matter. I'm hoping that a sequel will further elucidate Mr. Martin's unique perspective. "One girl to a man, so we setting it" is just so clearly put, it's magical, kind of like Shakespeare.

    Having our boy/girl friend and cheating them is no love we got for them. We dnt know what love is as yet. The day we love for real, there will be no chetaing.

    I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when I went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who's name is Dr ATILA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one's gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell.I'm now happy & a living testimony because the man I had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down because our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when I met this spell caster, I told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first I was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but I just gave it a try. And in 7 days when I returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn't believe it because the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all I wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is atilahealinghome@yahoo.com.
