  • You've been told, so maybe it's time that you learned
    You've been sold, maybe it's time that you earned

    I can't stand it
    You're fooling around, I can't stand it
    You're running around, I can't stand it
    You're fooling around with my heart

    I'll explain, Ifeel like i'm being used
    Make it plain, so you don't get confused

    I can't stand it
    You're fooling around, I can't stand it
    You're running around, I can't stand it
    You're fooling around with my heart

    I can't stand it
    You're running around, I can't stand it
    You're fooling around, I can't stand it
    You're playing around with my heart

    It's time, time for me to let you know
    Ain't no crime, no crime to let your feelings show

    I can't stand it
    You're fooling around, I can't stand it
    You're playing around, I can't stand it
    You're fooling around I can't stand it
    You're running around, I can't stand it
    You're playing around, I can't stand it
    You're fooling around I can't stand it
    You're running around, I can't stand it
    You're running around, I can't stand it
    Running around, I can't stand it
    You're fooling around I can't stand it
    Playing around, I can't stand it
    You're fooling around with my heart
    You're fooling around with my heart
    My heart
    Running around
    Fooling around with my heart
    Fooling around, I can't stand it
    Running around, I can't stand it
    Fooling around I can't stand it
    Fooling around I can't stand it
    Fooling around I can't stand it
    Running around I can't stand it
    Fooling around I can't stand it
    Running around
    Running around
    Running around
    Running around
