I'll Be Doggone Lyrics

by Marvin Gaye

Well, I'll be doggone if I wouldn't work all day
And I'll be doggone if I wouldn't bring you my pay
But if I ever caught you running around
Blowing my money all over this town

Then I wouldn't be doggone
Hey, hey, I'd be long gone
Then I wouldn't be doggone
I'd be long gone

Now hey, hey, hey
I'll be doggone if you ain't a pretty thing
And I'll be doggone if you ain't warm as a breath of spring
And if we live to be a hundred years old
If you ever let that spring turn cold

Then I wouldn't be doggone
Hey, hey, hey, I'd be long gone
Oh, I wouldn't be doggone
Babe, I'd be long gone

Now did you hear me?
Well, now what I say
Oh, believe me

Well, every woman should try to be
What ever her man wants her to be
And I don't want much
All I want from you is for you to be true to me

I'd be doggone if love ain't a man's best friend
And I'll be doggone if you ain't the loving end
Though I know you make me feel like nobody could
If I ever found out that you're no good

Then I wouldn't be doggone
I'd be long gone
Well, I wouldn't be doggone
I'd be long gone
I wouldn't be doggone
I'd be long gone
