With a smile like a prince
And eyes like the sun
With a voice of velvet
Oh you tell me I’m the only one
Can you tell me how I know Babe
If our love is true
Often my hearts been broken
By a man just like you

chorus
Listen up close Babe
Cause I’m not gonna say it twice
I won’t be around for long
If you don’t treat me right

You say you’re a good man
You work it hard every day
It’s that mean ole boss man
Keeps you working oh so late
But I better hear no rumors
You know the kind that go around
That your taking some little sweet thing
Some sweet thing down town

chorus

Oh ooo, you know how to make the moves Babe
Send a woman to her knees
You do just what you want baby
You get anything that you please
Show me that you love me Babe
Make it nice and slow
But if you can’t love me true baby
Well I’ll just get up and go

chorus
Listen up close Babe
Cause I’m not gonna say it twice
I won’t be around for long
If you don’t treat me right

Listen up close Babe
Cause if you ever do me wrong
I’ll pack up my bags today
and tomorrow I’ll be gone

Listen up close Babe
Cause I’m not gonna say it twice
I won’t be around for long
If you don’t treat me right
