​Don't Make Hurting Me A Habit

This song is by The Marvelettes and appears on the album Sophisticated Soul (1968).

Hey give me a minute, gotta tell you something

Don't mess with Bill
Don't mess with Bill
(Don't mess with Bill)
Say it one more time
(Don't mess with Bill)

Now I know he's a guy
Who put tears in my eyes
A thousand times or more
Oh, but every time he would apologize
I loved him more than before

Hear what I say
Girls keep away, ah, ah, ah
Don't mess with Bill
(No, no, no, no
Don't mess with Bill)
Leave my Billy alone

(Don't mess with Bill)
Get a guy of your own
(Don't mess with Bill)

Now there's Johnny
There's Joe and there's Frank and Jim
Just to name a few
Now, Bill's got me and I've got him
I'm sure there's one for you

Hear what I say
Girls keep away, ah, ah, ah
Don't mess with Bill
(No no no no
Don't mess with Bill)
'Cause he's mine all mine

(Don't mess with Bill)
I say it one more time
(Don't mess with Bill)

Though I tell myself he wants no one else
But keeps coming back to me
Now I'm in no decision to want competition
I want to be sure as can be

Hear what I say
Girls keep away, ah, ah, ah
Don't mess with Bill
(No no no no
Don't mess with Bill)
Leave my Billy alone

(Don't mess with Bill)
Get a guy of your own
(Don't mess with Bill)
'Cause he's mine all mine

(Don't mess with Bill)
I say it one more time
(Don't mess with Bill)
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah

(Don't mess with Bill)
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Don't mess with Bill)
Leave my man alone
(Don't mess with Bill)
Get a guy of your own
