If you keep on playin' around
You gonna lose me, oh baby
Don't lose your good thing now

Now listen, you better wake up
You better settle down, don't lose it
Don't lose your good thing now

I tried, I tried to please you
Oh, in everything I do
'Cause I want you

Ooh, hey love, Lord knows I need you
Ooh, ooh honey, Lord so bad
Ooh, so bad, ooh

I'll always love you
No matter what you do
Ooh, I'm beggin', beggin' you
Don't lose your good thing now

Ooh, someday you just might need me
And I won't be around
Ooh, oh darling, oh baby
Don't lose your good thing now

Oh, I'm just, I'm just a fool now
To keep on, to keep on lovin' you now
Oh, but I want you

Ooh Lord, ooh honey, now
I need, I need you, ooh yeah
Ooh honey, so bad, bad now
Bad, ooh, ooh, ooh

If you keep on playin' around
You don't miss your water till your well runs dry
Please, please honey
Don't lose your good thing now
