Lyrics / Paroles

 

Michael
Donít let your baby catch you
Donít let your baby catch you
Donít let your baby catch you

Jackson 5
Fooling around

Michael
You just might lose the best thing

Jackson 5
That you ever found

Michael
Donít let your baby catch you

Jackson 5
Fooling around

Michael
Oh, the nights are lonely
Twice as cold
Without my babyís hand to hold
My happiness is fading away
Just like a thief
I tried to steal a kiss
From another pretty miss
My baby was the price that I paid

Now listen, fellows

Jackson 5
(Think twice)

Michael
Think twice if you have cheating on your mind

Jackson 5
(Watch your step)

Michael
Remember
The punishment will fit your crime

Donít let your baby catch you
Donít let your baby catch you
Donít let your baby catch you
Fooling around
You just might lose the best thing
That you ever found
Donít let your baby catch you
Fooling around

Oh, I hope that now you let me be
Do right not wrong in full indeed
Iím gonna crawl back all the way on my knees
And if thatís no use Iíd get to move
And settle down and come to her
Oh, before I even say please
If I get one more chance
My life would be as good as you
And I would not forget the days
The sun would not shine through

Donít let your baby catch you
Donít let your baby catch you
Donít let your baby catch you
Fooling around
Oh, no
Canít you not, canít you not, canít you not, babe


Jermaine
Oh, donít let her
Oh, your baby catch you
You might lose the best thing
That you ever found

Tell about it, Mike


Michael
Youíre crazy about your baby
And sheís crazy about you
Just think of what youíd do to her
If she was untrue

Donít let your baby catch you
Donít let your baby catch you
Donít let your baby catch you
All right
Donít let your baby catch you

Jackson 5
Fooling around

Michael
You just might lose the best thing

Jackson 5
That you ever found

Michael
Donít let your baby catch you

Jackson 5
Fooling around

Michael
Donít let it
Donít let it
Donít let it
Stop
Stop
Stop


Donít let your baby catch you

Jackson 5
Fooling around

Michael
You just might lose the best thing

Jackson 5
That you ever found

Michael
Donít let your baby catch you

Jackson 5
Fooling around
