NOT I
(Don Woody - Paul Simmons)
DON WOODY (ARCO 4623, 1958)

(Pah-pah-pah-oom, pom-pom-pom-pom)
You need me, cried the girl to the boy
Without my love your life a-has no joy
I can do anything, baby, that I please
You'll come back crawling on your knees

Not I, cried-a he with a broken heart
Gave you my love, but you tore it apart
Don't want you now, 'cause-a you made me cry
Not I, Not I, Not I

She said, you're in my power, you're under my command
I got you wrapped around the finger of my hand
I said-a, oh-oh baby, I'm gonna jump up and down
I won't stand for your fooling around

Not I, cried-a he with a broken heart
Gave you my love, but you tore it apart
Don't want you now, 'cause-a you made me cry
Not I, Not I, Not I

She said, you're the puppet on my string
When I move my finger, you'll do anything
You know what will happen baby, if you lose me
You'd jump off a building or jump in the sea

Not I, cried-a he with a broken heart
Gave you my love, but you tore it apart
Don't want you now, 'cause-a you made me cry
Not I, Not I, Not I
(One more time)

She said, you're the puppet on my string
When I move my finger, you'll do anything
You know what will happen, if you lost me
You'd jump off a building or jump in the sea

Not me, cried he with a broken heart
Gave you my love, but you tore it apart
Don't want you now, 'cause-a you made me cry
Not I, Not I, Not I
Not I, Not I, Not I
Not I, Not I, Not I
