Marvelettes – Locking Up My Heart lyrics

Gladys:
I'm puttin' up my guard
I'm lockin' up my heart
Tellin' Cupid to pass by me
'Cause all love ever brought me was misery

Hello loneliness, goodbye love
I'm tired of being abused & being misused
I've had my share of romance, no more for me
I'm lockin' up my heart & throwin' away the key

(Wanda, high soprano):
Lockin' up (lockin' up, lockin' up)
Said I'm gonna throw away the key (throw away the key)
I'm lockin' up (lockin' up)
'Cause all love ever brought me was misery
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

(Instrumental)

Gladys:
I don't want (don't want) nobody to love me
Leave me alone & let me be lonely
This way I'll know just where I stand
I'll never have to worry about love again

Lockin' up (lockin' up, lockin' up)
Said I'm gonna throw away the key (throw away the key)
I'm gonna save myself from all this misery
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

(Wanda, high soprano):
Lockin' up (lockin' up, lockin' up)
Said I'm gonna throw away the key
I'm lockin' up (lockin' up my heart)
I'm lockin' up (lockin' up my heart)
(Repeat & fade):
Yeah yeah yeah (lockin' up my heart)
