Luther Vandross – I Won't Let You Do That To Me lyrics

Wait a minute
This is where I draw the line
Tell me what's got into you
'cause apparently you've lost your mind
Repetitious fault just can't be overlooked
So I'm reading you your rights in case
You misunderstood

1 - The first time, a mistake
Second time, a bad decision
Third time, there won't be one
'cause I won't let you do that to me

The first time, a mistake
Second time, a bad decision
Third time, honey, dream on
'cause I won't let you do that to me

Don't think I haven't checked out
All your alibies
And the evidence concludes
That you're just telling me half the truth
Still I keep giving you
The benefit of doubt
'cause I fell so deep in love with you
I struggle to get around
So if you wanna be down for me
I'm gonna be down for you
And if twice you break the rules
I've got to move on
You believed your first time
Cost you 25 years to life
But I won't wait for a third heartbreak
With my heart it's only two

Repeat 1

I don't believe you would mistake me for a fool
So if you're really smart, you better think twice
Before you move
I'll be too busy watching to hear a word you say
Just don't make the same mistake again
And everything's ok

Ad lib

Repeat 1 until fade
