Lyrics / Paroles

 

Michael
Don't let it get you down
When you're not on top
Where else numbers two
Let gets up and never stops, no
Ain't double same, loving me bring me game
Don't let it get you down, oh no

Don't let it get you down
When the cards are wrong
Pick up and let them walked away
Before you loose your heart
(Don't regret, girl)
Ain't double same, loving me bring me game
Don't let it get you down
(Oh, no)
Oh, no

Don't get mean
Don't it seem like you know what I'm talking about
Don't get me
Let me be the one to straighten it out, girl
(Don't let it get you down, oh no, don't let it)
(Don't let it get you down, oh no, don't let it)
Ain't double same
Loving me bring me game

Don't let it get you down
I can make you sunshine, make you happy
Ain't no clouds sky came out number me, yeah
Don't let it get you down

Don't let it get you down
You can start again
Now yesterday is gone
Let tomorrow be your friend
(Don't regret, girl)
Hey, don't regret girl,
Mama is still ahead
Don't let it get you down,
(Oh, no)
Oh no

Don't get mean
Don't it seem like you know what I'm talking about
Don't get me
Let me be, be the one to straighten it out, girl
I can't straighten it out, girl, yeah
(Don't let it get you down)
I can't straighten it out, girl, come on
(Don't let it get you down)
Don't let it, let it, let it...
Don't let it get you down
