Baby Don't Do It Just Because You Can
Lyrics
V1
You can bet on a dog
Bet on a horse
Bet your life
You'll lose of course

You can put up a front
Not give a damn
But baby don't do it just because you can
Baby don't do it just because you can

V2
You can strut your stuff
Like you're the queen
Drink all the whiskey
Down in New Orleans

Say you're done
Leave your man
But baby don't do it just because you can
Baby don't do it just because you can


Bridge
I was a young romancer
A gandy dancer on the I.C. line
You shook up my world
With your Prada and pearls
And you know in your heart that's a crime

V3
You can get by
On your looks and charm
You can jam the rent
Right in your arm

You can cross the line
In the sand
But baby don't do it just because you can
Baby don't do it just because you can

V4
Look at me
Look at you
Look at us
What will you do?

Throw away
All our plans
But baby don't do it just because you can
Baby don't do it just because you can
