My friends told me all about it
They said, I had to see for myself
But I never really cared much about love
I thought I 'd get by without it
Until I found this one girl and she was so fine
I knew she was the one who could change my mind

See, I used to be such a bad, bad boy
And good times were my toy for joy
And that was all I was thinking of
But I gave it up when I fell in love

I used to know the party people around the world
I gave it up when I found that girl
And she's the one treats me good enough
So I gave it up when I fell in love

Honey, I thought I was justified
To only see the world through my eyes
And that it was a waste of time talkin' 'bout love
But it only took a little time to make me change my mind
'Cause when she said goodbye
You know, I really thought I'd never stop crying

See, I used to be such a bad, bad boy
And good times were my toy for joy
And that was all I was thinking of
But I gave it up when I fell in love

I used to know the party people around the world
I gave it up when I found that girl
And she's the one, treats me good enough
So I gave it up when I fell in love

And now, every night I dream about you and our new love
All of my friends say I'm such a different guy
And they wonder
Oh, how they wonder

So she's the one, treats me good enough
So I gave it up when I fell in love
I gave it up
[Incomprehensible], baby
She's the one, treats me good enough
So I gave it up when I fell in love

I gave it up
Sho' 'nuff gave it up
Yeah, that was all I was thinking of
But I gave it up when I fell in love

I used to know the party people around the world
I gave it up when I found that girl
And she's the one, treats me good enough
So I gave it up when I fell in love

I used to be such a bad bad boy
And good times were my toy for joy
And that was all I was thinking of
But I gave it up when I fell in love

I used to know the party people around the world
