Stop na na na, you'd better save it!

You wanted to be It.
You crossed your heart you'd quit.
When we grew up you traded
Now just like back to grade school

Darling, take it slow
You'd better stop, the love you save may be your own!
You're headed for the danger zone.
I'm the one who loves you!

As soon as they succeed!
They'll ruin your reputation!

They'll turn your name to dirt, oh!
Isaac said he kissed you
When Benji held your hand he felt
When Alexander called you
Christopher discovered

Darling, take it slow
You'd better stop, the love you save may be your own!
You're headed for a danger zone.
Slow down.
Slow down.

T is for "Take it slow"
P is for "Please, please, don't go!"
The love you save may be your own
Stop it!
Baby, ooh!
Please, please
You'll be all alone
I'm the one who loves you!

As soon as they succeed. (Ah!)
Stop, the love you save may be your own, baby
Or someday you'll be all alone.
The way they talk about you

Don't you know don't you know.

As soon as they succeed.
Stop, the love you save may be your own!
