Lyrics

We've been friends for oh so long
I let you share what's mine
When you mess with the girl I love
It's time to draw the line

Keep your hands off my baby
Ain't a-gonna tell you but a-one more time
So keep your hands off my baby
Boy, you get it through your head
That girl is mine

I don't mind if you lend my clothes
Jewellery and such
There is something that you get straight
There's one thing you don't touch

Keep your hands off my baby
Ain't a-gonna tell you but a-one more time
So keep your hands off my baby
Can you get it through your head?
That girl is mine

Ow, baby!

Keep your hands off my baby
Ain't a-gonna tell you but a-one more time
So keep your hands off my baby
Can you get it through your head?
That girl is mine

Oh keep your hands off my baby, now
She's mine
Keep your hands off my baby
You better watch your step now
Boy, you get it through your head
That girl is mine
