Lyrics

Heard it from a friend who 
Heard it from a friend who 
Heard it from another you been messin' around 
They say you got a boy friend 
You're out late every weekend 
They're talkin' about you and it's bringin' me down 

But I know the neighborhood 
And talk is cheap when the story is good 
And the tales grow taller on down the line 
But I'm telling you, babe 
That I don't think it's true, babe 
And even if it is keep this in mind 

{refrain} 

You take it on the run baby 
If that's the way you want it baby 
Then I don't want you around 
I don't believe it 
Not for a minute 
You're under the gun so you take it on the run 

You're thinking up your white lies 
You're putting on your bedroom eyes 
You say you're coming home but you won't say when 
But I can feel it coming 
If you leave tonight keep running 
And you need never look back again 

{refrain x 3} 

Heard it from a friend who 
Heard it from a friend who 
Heard it from another you been messin' around
