You had quite good thing goin' with the girls you used to knowin'
You went up and down your list just like a yo-yo
And though it may be hard to stop it I'm afraid you'll have to drop it
Cause if you want me to love you that's a no no

I know you're used to goin' places with them lights and painted faces
Where the dancing girls do something they call go-go
I don't want to spoil your fun now but if I'm the only one now
And if you want me to love you that's a no no

You know a no no means baby shouldn't touch
If baby really loves his mama so much
So if you just can't resist 'em if they're not out of your system
And if there's some more wild oats you've got to sow
Just remember while you're sowin' I'll be a packin' up and goin'
Cause I've told you many times that that's a no no
[ steel ]
You know a no no means baby shouldn't touch
If baby really loves his mama so much
So if some old flame starts burnin' or if you should get to yearnin'
To go back to where those women that you know go
Don't come home expectin' mama's a waitin' here in her pajamas
Cause I've told you many times that that's a no no
Oh you should know by now that's a no no
