Not too long ago you said to me
I believe it's time you set me free
Cause I found a woman who knows how to love me right
And she don't mind if I lay out all night
And you said hallelujah this woman sure gets to ya
I fin'lly found peace of mind
Singin' hallelujah you don't know what good it'll do ya
Playin' around with love'll do it everytime
But then one day she felt like movin' on
One goodbye and you were all alone
And it's funny I could almost hear the sound
When your whole world came tumbling to the ground
And I said hallelujah that woman socked it to ya
Just walked away and blew your mind
Singin' hallelujah you got what's comin' to ya
Playin' around with love'll do it everytime
But it seems that I'm not too satisfied
With the brand new love that's walking by my side
Cause already there's an old love on my mind
Playin' around with love'll do it everytime
