He stuck that knife right into her gut
I want to tell you she was lucky with what she got
But what she got was not enough
She played around

Don't play around

I tried to tell her he was not so dumb
I tried to warn her there was something wrong
She wouldn't listen, she continued on
She played around

If you give your love to someone and someone treats you bad
If you give your love to someone and someone makes you mad
If you give your love to someone it can be so sad

Don't play around
Don't play around

He left her dying in the pool of blood
And she was crying oh my God oh my god
But she was no good, she was no good
She played around

Don't play around

She'd be laughing and dancing the night away
She'd be laughing and dancing with every man that came away
But as her life's blood slipped away
I thought I heard her say
Don't play around
Don't play around
