  • First, you take my heart
    In the palm of your hands
    And you squeeze it
    Then you take my mind
    And play with it all night

    You take my pride and you
    Throw it up against the wall
    You take me in your arms, baby
    And bounce me like a rubber ball

    I'm not complaining
    What you're doing, you see
    Cause this hurting feeling
    Is, ooh, so good to me

    Don't you know that it
    Hurts so good
    Don't you know that it
    Hurts so good

    You take my name
    Scandalize it in the streets
    Anything you wanna do or say
    Is alright with me

    Turn right around and
    Make sweet love to me
    Ooo wee, baby, you're
    Sure nuff good to me

    Cause, baby, these
    Things you're doing to me
    It hurts so bad but
    It's worth all the misery

    Cause it hurts so good
    Don't you know that
    It hurts so good
    Ooh, hoo, baby, ooh...

    Ooh, boy, please don't
    Ever take the hurt off me
    Cause it would hurt even worse
    If you would ever, ever leave
    (Oh, yes, it would)

    Even though sometimes
    It's hard for me to beg
    (This heart is killing me)
    I make myself hold out
    Cause if it kills me, I don't care

    Cause, baby (baby)
    I don't want you to ever quit
    It ain't no good until it
    Hurts a little bit

    Cause it hurts so good
    Don't you know that
    It hurts so good
    Oh, baby

    It hurts so good
    Don't you ever, don't
    You ever stop now, baby
    Give me some, baby
    (Lord, have mercy)

    It hurts so good
    Don't you know that
    It hurts so good to me
    Good for me, yeah, yeah

    Hurts so good
    Ooh, baby Writer/s: PHILLIP MITCHELL
