"Can't Keep No Good Boy Down" as written by and Paul/bey Ritchie....
I been thinking for a while now,
How you had me still.
Playing with my mind, now darling,
Hope you got your fill.

'Cause this train is leaving,
It's rolling down the track.
Singing "Ain't no turnin' back."

Now a simple man, it's true.
Givin' all I had to you.
Really don't leave much for me,
Sorry Woman, I had to let you be.

'Cause this train is leaving,
It's rolling down the track.
Singing "Ain't no turnin' back."
Singing "Ain't no turnin' back."


One day you're going to realize
I ain't the one to blame.
I see how you critisize and curse my very name,
now baby that's alright.

'Cause I got better things to do than be your whipped boy,
So you can say what you want
(???)
brings no tougher joy back in your whole life.
'Cause it don't matter what I do,
There just ain't no pleasing you.

Just say it how you mean it.
Just tell us how you feel.
Whoa, just say it how you mean it,
Just tell us...

Hope one day you'll find a man that
Can keep you satisfied,
Have yourself a mess of kids
And a real comfortable life

This train is leaving,
It's rolling downt the track,
Singing "Ain't no turnin' back".

Still I really wish you well,
Spite of all the lies you tell.
Can't Keep No Good Boy Down,
Woman when you gonna look around?

This train is leaving,
It's rolling down the track,
Singing "Ain't no turnin' back".

This train is leaving,
It's rolling down the track,
Singing "Ain't no turnin' back".
Singing "Ain't no turnin' back".
Singing "Ain't no turnin' back".
Singing "Ain't no turnin' back".
