  • I took my drugs and took my lovin' when I left out the spot
    I left the party with a Barbie, markin' X on the dot
    She calls my phone up but I told her, "I'm a loner" (uh)
    But she likes my watch and my droptop and my persona (uh)
    We hit the highway, 1-5-5, with my whole foot on the dash
    She's in my ear, she's got no fear, she could care less if we crash
    But on my radar, I've got some nerve to play hard
    I've waited for my chance, but playboys we don't dance, dance, dance

    I gave my heart (uh)
    Speedin' car goin' ninety in the rain
    She took my heart, filled it with nothin' but pain
    This beat in my hands is not for romance
    I wanna stay but, playboys, we don't dance, dance, dance

    So I won't dance again, oh, baby
    No, I won't dance again, ooh, yeah (uh)
    No, I won't dance again
    No, I won't dance again
    Pretty baby, ooh

    Oh, face in the daylight, wastin' time on the stars in the sky
    She's got my pager, play games of love all on my eyes
    Then I'm reminded, love don't come 'til you find it
    I just hope that it's workin', I'm yearnin', I'm searchin', uh
    The afterparty was on Wilson and 73rd
    You got the notion that somebody else was with me first
    But on my radar, you had some nerve to play hard
    You took away my chance, but playboys we don't dance, dance, dance

    I gave my heart (uh)
    Speedin' car goin' ninety in the rain
    She took my heart, filled it with nothin' but pain
    This beat in my hands is not for romance
    I wanna stay but, playboys, we don't dance, dance, dance

    So I won't dance again, oh, baby
    No, I won't dance again, ooh, yeah (uh)
    No, I won't dance again
    No, I won't dance again
    Pretty baby, ooh Writer/s: Daystar Peterson
