With Sugar Pie DeSanto

I don't wanna believe
The bad things about you
Oh, no, now

Cause if they're true
I'll have to get along without you
Oh, ooh, now

I said the word, the sound
The song about the things you do

Moving and a grooving
Using and a fooling
Chasing around every skirt in town
If it's true, you'll be on your way

Do I make myself clear
Do I make myself clear

I said you're gonna have to
Stop and check yourself
Oh, yeah, now

I'm not gonna have a man
That's got somebody else, oh, no
Oh, you tell him now, girl, now, now

So if you're running around, baby
Thinking of putting me down
You're wrong

Taking away what belongs to me
Giving to her when I'm in need
If it's true, you'll be on your way

Do I make myself clear
Do I make myself clear

I said, do, do I
Do I make myself clear
Do you understand me
Do, do I, do I make myself clear
Oh, you better listen to her now

Oh, yeah, ohh, yeah, now
Oh, oh, oh...

So why won't you try to do
Something to change it
Yeah, yeah

And make me know it's not
The way they claim it, oh, yeah
Now let me tell you something

All I wanted you to be true, honey
Love me like you say you do, oh, yeah
And I won't care for what they say
Instead, I'll turn my head and walk away
But if it's true, you know what to do

Do I make myself clear
Do I make myself clear

I said, do, do I
Do I make myself clear
And oh, oh, oh, yeah, now
Oh, oh...

I said do, do, do, do
Do I make myself clear
