Well, you been cheatin' on me
Big day you know I know it's true
But there ain't nobody in the whole wide world
Could love you like I do.

Don't be no fool (don't you be no fool)
Don't be no fool (don't you be no fool)
You gonna keep on foolin' around
Now baby your gonna mess up a good thing
Your gonna mess up a good thing.

Now I might have been cheated
Just a little bit baby like all the others do
Oh, but when I get my paycheck
Mama, I bring it on home to you.

Don't be no fool (don't you be no fool)
Don't be no fool (don't you be no fool)
You gonna keep on foolin' around
Now baby your gonna mess up a good thing
Your gonna mess up a good thing.

(Good thing, good thing, good thing, good thing)

--- Instrumental ---

They tell me you got a nighttime lover
A livin' away cross town
And there's gonna be, but a little while
Baby, before you cut me down.

Don't be no fool (don't you be no fool)
Don't be no fool (don't you be no fool)
You gonna keep on foolin' around
Now baby your gonna mess up a good thing
Your gonna mess up a good thing.

Now, don't you come sneakin' across town
Baby, to catch me a doin' you wrong
'Cause you know everybody's jealous
Baby, we got a thing goin' on.

Don't be no fool (don't you be no fool)
Don't be no fool (don't you be no fool)
You gonna keep on foolin' around
Now baby your gonna mess up a good thing
Your gonna mess up a good thing.

(Good thing, good thing, good thing, good thing)...
