Lyrics


You've got all the toys
That money can buy
But still you come to me like a little boy
So unsatisfied
Well I ain't casting stones
I don't want apologies
You can play around
But don't you play around me

I'm gonna call it quits
Yeah, baby, I've had enough
Don't want to play cool
I don't want to play tough
Oh, all of the best things
In life, they are still free
Well, you can play around
But don't you play around me

I'm not gonna walk (I'm not gonna walk)
Up on your high wire
I'm not gonna jump (I'm not gonna jump)
Through your little hoops of fire
I'm not gonna dance (I'm not gonna dance)
Like a puppet on a string, oh
Oh, no, not me

This is no day of judgment, I'm
Not waiting for you to confess
Not waiting for the proud to someday fall
Over humble to be blessed
I'm not waiting for anything
Yeah, I'm just walking free
Well, you can play around
But don't you play around me
Yeah, you can play around
Yeah, don't you play around me

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
