​Rough Trade

This song is by Stephanie Mills and appears on the album I've Got The Cure (1984).

When there's no moon in sight
Doobley gets an appetite
For tender young things
Like lion stalks when girls for their walks
They become his prey

Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Never mess around with rough trade

Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Bad boys will steal your heart away
And take you to the break

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy
Doobley is a bad boy

In the tropic zone
Young flowers all alone
Set out for a change of pace
But to their surprise
When they realize
Doobley had made his play

Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Never mess around with rough trade

Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Bad boys will steal your heart away
And take you to the break

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy
Doobley is a bad boy

Bad boy, bad boy
He's such a bad boy, bad boy
He's a bad boy, bad boy
Bad boy, bad boy

He's just rough trade
He's so bad
He's just rough trade
He's so bad
He's bad

Well, that's the price you pay
At least that's what they say
For reaching for the moon
Now her plans and schemes
Her wishes and her dreams
Will never bloom

Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Never mess around with rough trade

Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Bad boys will steal your heart away
And take you to the break

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy
