"I Gave It Up (When I Fell In Love)" as written by Marcus Miller and Luther R. Vandross....
My friends told me all about it
They said I had to see for myself
But I never really cared that
Much about love

I thought I could live without it
Until I found this one girl
And she was so fine
I knew she was the one who could change my mind

See, I used to be such a bad, bad boy
And good times were my toy for joy
And that was all I was thinking of
But I gave it up when I fell in love

I used to know (the party people all around the world)
And not anymore (I gave it up when I found that girl)
And she's the one treats me good enough
So I gave it up when I fell in love

I thought I was justified
To only see the world through my eyes
And that it was a waste of time
Talkin' 'bout love
But it only took a little time
To make me change my mind
'Cause when she said goodbye
You know I really thought I'd never stop crying

See, I used to be such a bad, bad boy
And good times were my toy for joy
And that was all I was thinking of
But I gave it up when I fell in love

I used to know (the party people all around the world)
But not anymore (I gave it up when I found that girl)
And she's the one treats me good enough
So I gave it up when I fell in love

And now, every night I dream about you and our new love
All of my friends say oh I'm such a different guy
And they wonder
Oh, how they wonder

So she's the one treats me good enough
See I gave it up when I fell in love

I gave it up (I gave it up)
So I gave it up when I fell in love

I gave it up (I gave it up)
Sho 'nuff gave it up (sho 'nuff gave it up)
That was all I was thinking of
But I gave it up when I fell in love

I used to know (the party people all around the world)
But not anymore (I gave it up when I found that girl)
And she's the one treats me good enough
So I gave it up when I fell in love

See, I used to be such a bad, bad boy
And good times were my toy for joy
And that was all I was thinking of
But I gave it up when I fell in love

I used to know (the party people all around the world)
But not anymore (I gave it up when I found that girl)
