    Lyrics »

Baby, please stop messin' round
You're messin' round all the time
Baby, please stop messin' round
You're messin' round all the time
Now, if you don't stop messin' round
You'll be somebody's baby 'stead of mine, yeah

break:

I want you to squeeze a me, baby, 'til my face turns cherry red
You roll me so hard, baby, I'm fallin' out of bed, now
Please stop messin' round,
Messin' round all the time
And if you don't stop messin' round
Be somebody's baby instead of mine

CommentsFrom Radio 1 “Top Gear”. Recorded at 201 Piccadilly, Studio 1, London. First broadcast September 1, 1968 (P) 1968 BBC This track most likely doesn't feature Spencer (though listed in the liner notes as being on it). If they are on it, their parts have been mixed down/out. Also sounds like Christine McVie/Perfect's probable guest part has been mixed down/out.
