=========================


        Jim, living with you's not such fun
        You're not the only one
        You don't have the looks
        you're not the person that you used to be
        And there are people on the street that would go for me

        And I said no no no no no
        baby face
        And I said no no no no no
        baby face

        I met you in a bar in L.A.
        I was not feeling so good
        You did the proper moves
        you did everything that you should
        But now you're making a mistake
        and somebody else will take your place
        You're taking drugs over me

        And I said no no no no no
        I said now no no no no no
        I said now no no no no no
        baby face
        I said now no no no no no
        baby face

        You're not the kind of person
        it's easy to live with in a house
        I cook all your meals
        I make sure that you work out
        But lately it's been gettin' so hard
        (man you don't split your stash or your bread)
        the way you talk, ooohhh, the way you walk
        (you can keep it)
        And I'm not sure exactly what it's all about

        And I said no no no no no
        baby face
        I said now no no no no no
        baby face
        I said now no no no
        I said now no no no no
        ooohhh baby face, ah huh, ooohhh
        No no baby, baby
        No way now baby face
        uh uh
        (you can keep it, just keep it)
