(Gerry Goffin / Carole King)

When my friends told me
You had someone new
I didn't believe
A single word was true

I showed them all
I had a-faith in you
I just a-kept on saying
Oh no! Not my baby
Oh no! Not my sweet baby

You're not like those other guys
Who lead you on and tell you lies
My mama told me when rumours spread
There's truth somewhere and I should use my head

But I didn't listen to what she said
I kept a-right on saying
Oh no! Not my baby
Oh no! Not my sweet baby

You're not like those other boys
Who play with hearts like they were toys

Well, you might have had a last-minute fling
But I am sure it didn't mean a thing
'Cause yesterday
You gave me your ring
And I'm so glad that I kept on saying
Oh no! Not my baby
Oh no! Not my sweet baby

You're not like those other boys
Who play with hearts like they were toys
Oh no! Not my baby
Oh no! Not my sweet baby
Oh no! Not my baby
No, no, no not my sweet baby
Oh no! Not my baby
