"Don't Do It" as written by Baggy Bukaddor and Siggi Wafzig....
Baby, don't you do it, don't do it
Don't you break my heart, please don't do it
Don't you break my heart

I sacrifice to make you happy
Get nothin' for myself
Now you wanna leave me
For the love of someone else
My pride is all gone, whether right or wrong
I need you, baby, girl, just keep on keepin' on
And you know I tried to do my best
Well, I try to do my best
Don't do it
Don't you break my heart
Please don't do it
Don't you break my heart

My biggest mistake was lovin' you too much
And lettin' you know
Now you've got me where you want me
You won't let me go, no, no
My heart was made of glass
Well, then you'll surely see
Heartaches and misery
Girl, you've been causin' me
Well, I've been tryin' to do my best
Well, I try to do my best

Don't do it
Don't you break my heart
Please don't do it
Don't you break my heart

Go down to the river and there I'll be
I'm gonna jump in, girl
'Cause you don't care about me
Open up your eyes, can't you see I love you?
Open up your heart, girl
Can't you see I need you?
Oh baby, don't do it, do it, do it
Don't you break my heart
Please don't do it
Don't you break my heart

My biggest mistake was loving you too much

And letting you know
How you got me where you want me
You won't let me go, no, no
If my heart was made of glass
Well, then you'll surely see
How much heartaches and misery
You've been causin' me
Well, I've been tryin' to do my best
Well, I try to do my best

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

    General CommentI love this song...the last song the Band played together onstage (until the reunion) but ironically the opening song on The Last Waltz. Just a good, fun rock n roll song.
