Lyrics[2]

  • Stop! Na na na! You'd better save it!
  • Stop, stop, stop, you'd better save it!
  • When we played tag in grade school
  • You wanted to be It.
  • But chasing boys was just a fad
  • You crossed your heart you'd quit.
  • When we grew up you traded
  • Your promise for my ring
  • Now just like back to grade school
  • You're doing the same old thing!
  • Stop! The love you save may be your own!
  • Darling, take it slow
  • Or some day you'll be all alone.
  • You'd better stop the love you save may be your own!
  • Darling, look both ways before you cross me
  • You're headed for the danger zone.
  • I'm the one who loves you!
  • I'm the one you need!
  • Those other guys will put you down
  • As soon as they succeed!
  • They'll ruin your reputation!
  • They'll label you a flirt!
  • The way they talk about you
  • They'll turn your name to dirt, oh!
  • Isaac said he kissed you
  • Beneath the apple tree
  • When Benjie held your hand he felt
  • E-lec-tri-ci-tee!
  • When Alexander called you
  • He said he rang your chimes.
  • Christopher discovered
  • You're way ahead of your times!
  • Stop! The love you save may be your own!
  • Darling, take it slow
  • Or some day you'll be all alone.
  • You'd better stop the love you save may be your own!
  • Darling, look both ways before you cross me
  • You're headed for a danger zone.
  • Slow down.
  • Slow down.
  • Slow down.
  • Slow down.
  • S is for "Save it"
  • T is for "Take it slow"
  • O is for "Oh, no!"
  • P is for "Please, please, don't go!"
  • The love you save may be your own
  • Some day you may be all alone
  • Stop it!
  • Save it, girl!
  • Baby! Ooooh!
  • You better stop the love you save may be your own
  • You'd better stop! the love you save may be your own!
  • Please, please
  • Or some day, some day baby,
  • You'll be all alone
  • I'm the one who loves you!
  • I'm the one you need!
  • Those other guys will put you down as soon as they succeed.
  • (Ah!)
  • Stop! The love you save may be your own, baby
  • You'd better stop it, stop it, stop it girl!
  • Or someday you'll be all alone.
  • The way they talk about you
  • They'll turn your name to dirt.
  • Stop! The love you save may be your own!
  • Don't cha know don't cha know.
  • Some day baby you'll be all alone.
  • (Wait a while)
  • Those other guys will put you down as soon as they succeed.
  • Stop! The love you save may be your own!
  • Darling
