  • Well looky here looky here ah what do we have?
    Another pretty thing ready for me to grab
    But little does she know that I'm a wolf in sheeps clothing
    'Cause at the end of the night it is her I'll be holding

    I love you so
    That's what you'll say
    You'll tell me baby, baby please don't go away
    But when I play, I never stay
    To every girl that I meet here, this is what I'll say

    Run run runaway, runaway baby
    Before I put my spell on you
    You better get get getaway, getaway darling
    'Cause everything you heard is true

    You poor little heart will end up alone
    'Cause lord knows I'm a rolling stone
    So you better run run runaway, runaway baby
    Uh, ah yeah

    Well let me think, let me think, ah what should I do?
    So many eager young bunnies that I'd like to pursue
    Now even though they're eating out the palm of my hand
    There's only one carrot and they all gotta share it

    I love you so
    That's what you'll say
    You'll tell me baby, baby please don't go away
    But when I play, I never stay
    To every girl that I meet here, this is what I'll say

    Run run runaway, runaway baby
    Before I put my spell on you
    You better get get getaway, getaway darling
    'Cause everything you heard is true

    You poor little heart will end up alone
    'Cause lord knows I'm a rolling stone
    So you better run run runaway, runaway baby
    Uh, check it out

    See I ain't tryna hurt you baby
    No no no I just want to work you baby
    See I ain't tryna hurt you baby
    No no no I just want to work you baby

    If you are scared, you better run (you better run)
    You better run, (you better run)
    You better run, (you better run)
    You better, you better, you better

    Run run runaway, runaway baby
    Before I put my spell on you
    You better get get getaway, getaway darling
    'Cause everything you heard is true

    You poor little heart will end up alone
    'Cause lord knows I'm a rolling stone
    So you better run run runaway, runaway baby Writer/s: Ari Levine, Chris Brown, Peter Hernandez, Philip Lawrence
