I ain't gonna stand for it

Lyrics

Don't wanna believe what they're telling me
Somebody's been pickin in my cherry tree
Don't wanna mistrust nobody by mistake
But I hear tell someone's been diggin round in my cake
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
nah-ah (nah-ah)
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
I ain't gonna stand for it baby
nah-ah (nah-ah nah-ah) nah-ah (nah-ah nah-ah)

Don't wanna believe what somebody said
But somebody said somebody's shoes was under my bed
Don't wanna cause nobody no bodily harm
But somebody's been rubbin' on my good luck charm

And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
I ain't gonna stand for it baby
nah-ah (nah-ah)
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
I ain't gonna stand for it baby
nah-ah (nah-ah nah-ah) nah-ah (nah-ah nah-ah)

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, my, my, my, my, my, my,
Oh, Oh, my, my, my, my, my, my,
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, my, my, my, my, my, my,
Oh, Oh, my, my, my, my, my, my,

No, I ain't gonna stand for it baby
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby, nah-ah (nah-ah)
I ain't gonna stand for it baby
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby, no
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby, oh, oh,
no, no, no, no, no (nah-ah)
I ain't gonna stand for it baby
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby
And I ain't gonna stand for it baby, nah-ah (nah-ah) oh, oh, oh
(I ain't gonna stand for it baby,
I ain't gonna stand for it baby,
I ain't gonna stand for it baby)
no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
stand for it baby, nah-ah (nah-ah) baby, ah, ah
