You been cheating on me now
You know I know it's true
Ain't nobody in the whole wide world
Gonna love you like I do
Don't you be no fool, don't you be no fool
(Don't you be no fool, don't you be no fool)
Gonna keep on fooling 'round now baby
Gonna mess up your good thing

Well I might of cheated just a little bit baby
Nobody knows but you
When I get my paycheck darling
Left it all home to you
Don't be no fool, lord don't you be no fool
(Don't be no fool, be no fool)
Gonna keep on jiving round now baby
Gonna mess up that good thing
(Gonna mess up that good thing)

Gonna mess up that good thing
Ya baby
(Good thing)
What can I say
(Good thing)
Oh darling
(Good thing)
Ohhhh

They tell me you got a part-time lover
Living away cross town
Won't be more than a little while baby
You'll be putting me down
Don't you be no fool, no don't you be no fool
(Be no fool, be no fool)
Gonna keep on jiving 'round now, baby
Gonna mess up that good thing
(Gonna mess up that good thing)

Now don't you come sneaking across town baby
You'll sure catch me doing no wrong
You know I know all our friends know
We got a thing going
Don't you be no fool, no don't you be no fool
(Don't you be no fool, be no fool)
Gonna keep on jiving 'round now baby
Gonna mess up a good thing
(Gonna mess up a good thing)
Oh that's what I say
(Mess up a good thing)
Good thing, oh baby
(Good thing)
Good thing, what did you say
(Good thing)
Ohh darling
(Good thing)
No, no, no no, nooo
Oh fool around
Mess up the best damn thing you ever gonna have yeah
