I wanna do it
My, but it's trouble every day
And a battle of the wills gets you down

And you don't wanna fight
But it's hard to walk away
When a shadow of the good girl gets you bound

Baby, well behaved never lasts for long
You pull away and we've all heard the same old song
Where he ties you down, he doesn't want you strong
If he wants you well behaved, your love won't last for long

So you think you've learned your lesson
And you finally get away
And a boy with good intentions steals your heart

But you make him ask permission
Like when a child goes out to play
In a battle for attention, you start

But baby, well behaved never lasts for long
You pull away and we've all heard the same old song
Where you tie him down, you don't want him strong
If you want him well behaved, your love won't last for long

Baby, well behaved never lasts for long
You pull away and we've all heard the same old song
Where he ties you down, he doesn't want you strong
If he wants you well behaved, your love won't last for long

Your love won't last for long
Won't last for long

Won't last for long
