Breakin' Up A Happy Home Lyrics

by Dusty Springfield

If we fuss and we fight
Why do we have to do it every Saturday night?
We can act for our friends
But why can't we face each other when the masquerade ends?

Well now, I don't know what's happening
I can't tell just who's to blame
But two forgiving people
Could be so in love again

Stop, we're breakin' up a happy home
Oh darlin'
Stop, 'cause I never was much good alone
Sweet baby

Oh, don't turn your back and walk away
Don't do it, no
Stop, we're breakin' up a happy home, yeah

It's a game no one wins
Trying to hurt each other with those needles and pins
I can't go back, can't go on
But somehow I know the feeling isn't totally gone

Oh, there's so much love between us
That we're so afraid to show
It's been keeping us together
But for how long, I don't know

Stop, yeah, we're breakin' up a happy home
Oh darlin'
Stop, I never was much good alone
Listen baby

Ooh, don't, no, turn your back and walk away
Don't do it, oh stop
Stop, we're breakin' up a happy home, yeah

Ooh
Stop, stop, don't break it up
Stop, stop, don't break it up
Gotta be another way we can try

Stop, stop, don't break it up
Stop, stop, don't break it up
I don't wanna hear you saying goodbye
Oh baby, sweet baby, ahh
Yeah baby, ooh baby
