"You Can't Do That" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
My babe don't buy me presents
How can you laugh when you know I'm down?
Beep-beep, beep-beep, yeah

I got something to say that might cause you pain
If I catch you talking to that boy again
Gonna let you down (yes, yes, you're gonna lose that girl)
And leave you flat (gonna let you down and leave you flat)
Because I told you before (good day sunshine)
You can't do that (it's been a hard day's night)

It's the second time I caught you talking to him (I wanna hold your hand)
I got to tell you one more time I think it's a sin
Gonna let you down (yes, yes, you're gonna lose that girl)
And leave you flat (gonna let you down and leave you flat)
Because I told you before (good day sunshine)
You can't do that (day tripper, yeah)

Paperback writer, yeah

Everybody's green, sha, la, la, ooh
'Cause I'm the one who stole your love
But if they'd seen, sha, la, la, ooo
Me talking that way
They'd laugh in my face, so

Please listen to me if you want to stay mine (would you like to know a secret?)
I can't help this feeling, I'll go out of my mind
Gonna let you down (yes, yes, I'm gonna leave you flat)
And leave you flat (gonna let you down and leave you flat)
Because I told you before
You can't believe in yesterday

My babe don't buy me presents (how can you laugh when you know I'm down)
(Beep-beep, beep-beep, yeah) strawberry Beatles forever
