Ah baby don't you do it
Don't do it baby
Don't you break my heart
Please don't do it baby, don't you break my heart
Please don't you do it baby

Well I sacrifice to make laughter
I kept nothin' for myself
Now you wanna leave me baby
For the love of someone else
Well, I try to do my best
Yeah, I'm try to do my best
Don't you do it, don't do it, baby
Don't you break my heart
Please, don't you do it, baby

Don't you do it
Please don't you do it, babe

My biggest mistake was lovin' you too much
And lettin' you know
Oh now you got me where you want me
Baby you gonna let me go

I try to do my best
Yeah, I'm try to do my best
Don't do it, baby

I go down to the river, and there I'll be
I'm gonna jump right in, baby
If you don't see about me
I try to do my best
Yeah, I try to do my best

Open up your eyes, can't you see I need you?
Open up your heart babe, can't you see I love you?

Yeah, don't you do it
Please don't you do it, babe
Yeah, don't you do it
Please don't you do it, babe
Don't you break my heart now
Gonna break my heart now
Why don't you do it now?

Ooh yeah
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Don't you do it

Don't, don't, don't
Don't, don't, don't please
Break my heart
Please don't do it baby

Don't you do it
Don't you break my heart now
You're gonna break my heart now
You're gonna break my heart now
You're gonna break my heart now
Woo

Don't, don't, don't
Don't, don't, don't, please

Everybody, everybody, everybody, woo

Can't you see I need it?
Can't you see I need

Said don't you do it
Break my heart now
Yeah, don't you do it
Don't you break my heart
Don't break my heart
Don't do it, baby

    General CommentI'm suprised no one else has posted about song. This song has the best drumming I have ever heard. The drums are the song.

    General Commentyeah the drumming in this song is SICK (meaning very good!). its a marvin gaye cover i think but does anyone know what album its on??
    btw a few other songs with amazing drumming on are "Cobwebs And Strange" "Heaven And Hell" "The Ox" and of course percussion on the amazing mini opera "A Quick One, While He's Away"

    General CommentIt's on the deluxe remastered version of Who's Next (w/ Leslie West) and the old-style is on Odds and Sods.

    General CommentThis is a great song and The Who does it well, but The Band's version (as "Don't Do It") is by far the best cover of this song I've ever heard.
