don’t mess up a good thing lyrics – fontella bass

with bobby mcclure

a good thing, a good thing

you been cheating on me now
you know i know it’s true
but ain’t n*body in
the whole wide world
gonna love you like i do

(chorus)
don’t you be no fool
don’t you be no fool
you gonna keep on
fooling around now, baby
you’re gonna mess up a good thing
you’re gonna mess up a good thing

now i might’ve cheated
just a little bit, baby
like all others do
but when i get my paycheck, baby
i rush right home to you

(chorus)

a good thing, yeah, yeah, yeah
a good thing, yeah, baby
a good thing, oh, yeah
a good thing, come on, baby

you tell me that you
got a part-time lover
living way across town
and it ain’t gonna be
but a little while, baby
before you put me down

(chorus)

now don’t you come
sneaking across town, baby
to catch me doing wrong
cause you know
everybody’s jealous, baby
cause we got a thing going on

(chorus)

a good thing, yeah, yeah, yeah
a good thing, yeah, baby
a good thing, oh, yeah
a good thing, come on, baby

a good thing, yeah, yeah, yeah
a good thing, yeah, baby
a good thing, good thing
