NOW STOP
(Otis Blackwell)
MARTHA CARSON (RCA 47-6948, 1957)

Now stop, holdin' me tight
If you don't think you're gonna treat me right
If you're out to tease and not to please
You don't know what you're doin'
When you're messin' with me
Now stop, now stop, haa cut it out
If you don't know what love's about
Now stop, tellin' me lies
If the things you say are gonna make me cry
I don't go for bad, 'cause it makes me so mad
I walk around blue when I should be glad
Now stop, now stop, haa cut it out
If you don't know what love's about

If you say that I'm your lover
Honey, I'll treat you fine
But if you play one right after the other
Honey, I'll draw the line
Now stop if you don't mean to play this game
Like a king and a queen
A joker ain't real, there's nothing he feels
I'll throw my hand in for a brand new deal
Now stop, now stop, haa cut it out
If you don't know what love's about

If you say that I'm your lover
Honey, I'll treat you fine
But if you play one right after the other
Baby, I'll draw the line
Now stop, holdin' me tight
If you don't think you're gonna treat me right
If you're out to tease and not to please
You don't know what you're doin'
When you're messin' with me
Now stop, now stop, haa cut it out
If you don't know what love's about
Now stop, now stop, oh cut it out
If you don't know what love's about
Now stop!
