Rules Don't Stop

  • Don't be alarmed
    It's not the end of the world
    If we're breaking the rules it's fine
    I disregard this kind of problem all the time
    It's not as if it's gonna kill anyone
    If there's no victim then there's no crime
    Just draw another if you think we've crossed the line

    Rules don't stop me
    Forget about it
    Rules don't stop me
    We'll get around it
    Rules don't stop me
    Forget about it
    Don't stop me, don't stop me

    Although it may seem unconventional sometimes
    Indiscretion is worth a try
    If you just play along I promise we'll be fine
    So leave your hang-ups back at the door
    When you and I are down on the floor
    Will you know what to do about it
    You know what to do about it

    Rules don't stop me
    Forget about it
    Rules don't stop me
    We'll get around it
    Rules don't stop me
    Forget about it
    Don't stop me, don't stop me

    It's not as bad as they say
    If this is such a mistake
    Why does it seem to make you so damn happy?
    This is no time to behave
    Let's both get carried away
    If there's a price to be paid
    It won't stop me

    Rules don't stop me
    Forget about it
    Rules don't stop me
    We'll get around it
    Rules don't stop me
    Forget about it
    Don't stop me, don't stop me
    They don't stop me, they don't stop me Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER CAIN, KEITH MURRAY
