Don't play that song for me
'Cause it brings back memories
The days that I once knew
The days that I spent with you

Oh no, don't let em play it (oh no)
It fills my heart with pain (it hurts)
Please, stop it right away
'Cause I remember just what he said

He said darlin' (darlin' I)
And I know that he lied (oh, he lied)
You know that you lied (oh, he lied to me)
You know that you lied, lied, you lied (to me)

Hey mister, don't play it no more
Don't play it no more
I can't stand it
Don't play it no more (no more), no more (no more), no more, whoa-whoa (can't stand it)

I remember on our first date (ooh)
He kissed me and he walked away (ooh)
I was only seventeen (ooh)
I'd never dream he'd be so mean (ooh)

He told me darling (darling, I love you)
Baby, baby, you lied (oh, did I need you)
You, you lied (darling, I love you)
You know that you lied (you lied), lied (you lied), lied (to me)

Oh-oh-oh, you lied (darling I love you)
You know that you lied, yeah (darling, I need you)
You know I know you lied (darling, I love you)

Darling, you lied (you lied) you lied (you lied) you lied, go on and hurt me
You lied (to me)
Oh, whoa-oh, you lied

Oh, baby don't play it no more (don't play it no more)
Don't do it, don't play it no more (for me), no more (for me)
I can't stand it no more (don't play it no more)

Oh hey, don't play it no more (don't play it no more)
