Runaround Sue
Here's my story, it's sad but true
It's about a girl that I once knew
She took my love then ran around
With every single guy in town

(Hey, hey) Whoa
(Hey, hey) Whoa
(Hey, hey) Whoa
(Hey, hey) Whoa

Yeah, I'm-a shoulda known it from the very start
This girl'd leave me with a broken heart
A-listen people what I'm tellin' you
A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue, yeah

I'm-a miss her lips and the smile on her face
The touch of her hand and this girl's warm embrace
So if you don't wanna cry like I do
A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue

(Hey, hey) Whoa
(Hey, hey) Whoa
(Hey, hey) Whoa

She likes to travel around, yeah
She'll love you and she'll put you down
Now people let me put you wise
A-Sue goes out with other guys

Here's the moral in the story from the guy who knows
I fell in love and my love still grows
Ask any fool that she ever knew, they'll say-a
A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue

Yeah, keep away from this girl
I know, know what she'll do
Keep away from Sue

A-she likes to travel around, yeah
She'll love you and she'll put you down
Now people let me put you wise
A-she goes out with other guys

Here's the moral in the story from that guy who knows
I fell in love and my love still grows
Ask any fool that she ever knew, they'll say-a
A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue

Yeah, stay away from that girl
Don't you know what she'll do now
Whoa
