Bo Donaldson And The Heywoods – The Heartbreak Kid lyrics

Watch out for the heartbreak kid
He's just a bandit
Stealing your affections
Look out for the heartbreak kid
He's gonna take your love and run

Hey, hey, girl, listen to me
Tonight, you better take care
There's a guy in town
Out to get you
And so you better beware

Whoa, oh, oh
In some places
They call him the rapper
The cheater, you know what he did
But in this town, oh well
He's known around as The Kid

[Repeat chorus]

He comes on so smoothly
Yes, he was born with the knack
But, baby, once he
Gets what he's after
You know he ain't coming back

Oh, oh, oh, oh
You're gonna feel
So secure with his loving
Just like all the others did
Then he'll be gone
You know you can't
Hang onto the kid

[Repeat chorus]

Well, I know that
He's after you, baby
Using his line that works so well
But, baby, he'll never love you
Like I can love you
So don't fall under his spell

[Repeat chorus]

He's gonna take your love and

[Repeat chorus]

He's gonna take your love and

[Repeat chorus to fade]
