(Instrumental)

I been down an I ain't through
I see you can't take it
Tryin' to love and baby you
I see you can't take it

I can tell at a glance
By the way you kiss and then
I'd be silly to take a chance
On breakin' my plans in two

I'd ruther have no gal at all
I see you can't take it
If I trust my heart to you
I know you will break it

I can tell by your eyes
You's the devil in disguise
Good luck, goodbye
I see you can't take it

'Yeah, y-yeah, get it'

(instrumental)

I'd rather have no gal at all
I see you can't take it
If I trust my heart to you
I know you will break it

I can tell by yo' eyes
You's the devil in disguise
Good luck, goodbye
I see you can't take it.

Yea-eah!
