Lyrics / Paroles

 

Michael
Oh, sure donít baby, baby, baby
I donít know why I love you
I donít know why I love you
I donít know why I love you
But I love you

Always treat me like a fool
Kick me when Iím down
That you do
I donít know why I love you
But I love you

Oh, youíll never, youíll never stop your cheating ways
With another guy you laugh in my face
Lord, how long must I be disgraced
íCause I love you
Oh, baby, baby, baby

I donít know why I love you
I donít know you and me, baby
Oh, yeah, I donít know why I love you
But I love you, baby
Oh darling, darling, darling, darling

You throw my heart down in the dirt
Oh, you make me crawl
On this cold black earth, baby, yeah
I never knew, I never knew how much love could hurt
íTil I love you baby, baby, baby, baby, yeah

Canít stop, I canít stop crying
Canít you see
Here Iím pleading on my knees
Upon my knees, yeah, baby, yeah
Wonít you help me, help me, please
íCause I love you, love you, love you
Ooh, sure know, baby


Jackson 5
I donít know, you donít know
We donít know nothing about it
I canít do nothing about it
I donít know, baby
I donít know
Ah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, I donít know, baby
I donít know, I donít know
I donít know nothing about it
