  • I never thought you'd hurt me
    I guess you live and learn
    That when you're playin' with fire you're bound to get burned
    I've been mistreated, I've been used before
    I get kicked in the face still I come back for more

    But I won't cry no more 'cause the tears are all in vain
    We can pick up the pieces and start it all again
    Let's just get back to the way it was before
    Oh, girl I can't take anymore

    Baby, don't treat me bad
    Well, this could be the best thing that you'll ever have
    Baby, don't treat me bad
    (Well) you can do anything, but baby, don't treat me bad
    Oh, don't treat me bad

    I gave it everything, but you threw it all away
    I can't take anymore of these games that you play
    I've been through heartache and I've been through pain
    And it's hard to believe you still treat me this way

    But I won't cry no more 'cause the tears are all in vain
    We can pick up the pieces and start it all again
    Let's just get back to the way it was before
    Oh, girl I can't take anymore

    Baby, don't treat me bad
    Well, this could be the best thing that you'll ever have
    Baby, don't treat me bad
    (Well) you can do anything, but baby, don't treat me bad
    Oh, don't treat me bad

    Oh girl, I can't take anymore, oh yeah, now listen to me

    Baby, don't treat me bad
    Well, this could be the best thing that you'll ever have
    Baby, don't treat me bad
    (Well) you can do anything, but baby, don't treat me bad
    Oh, don't treat me bad Writer/s: BILL LEVERTY, CARL SNARE, COSBY ELLIS, MICHAEL FOSTER

  • Holly Pughe from PhoenixI Live all the guys. I watched your videos everyday. It's like I have a concert in my bedroom every morning. I really am attracted to the lead guitarist and mostly the drummer. He's adorable. I take him home any day. !!
