Written by Gerry Goffin, Carole King
Copyright 1964 Screen Gems-EMI Music In (BMI)

When my friends told me you had someone new
I didn't believe a single word was true
I showed them all I had faith in you
I just 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 rumors spread
There's truth somewhere and I should use my head
But I didn't listen to a word she said
I kept 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
Now I'm glad that I 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

Oh no not my baby
Oh no not my sweet baby
Oh no not my baby
Oh no not my sweet baby
