Otis Redding Think About It

Wait!

Before you walk out that door

Hang your clothes in the closet

You’re forgetting one thing

I’m the one who saved you

From a long lonely life

I’m the one who gave you

You’re first taste to paradise

Look how you payin’ me back

Look how you turnin’ your back

Please don’t do me like this, honey

All this good love, you’re gonna miss

Think about it, honey

You really ought to think about it ‘fore you leave me

Dig this

I’m the one who showed you

How to live when you wanted to die

I’m the one who taught you

How to laugh when you wanted to cry

But look what you’re doing to me

Look how you’re hurting me

Please don’t do me like this

All of this good lovin’ you’re gonna miss

Think about it, baby, listen

You really, really ought to think about it ‘fore you leave

You really ought to think about it

Deep down think about it ‘fore you leave me

Do this for me honey

Don’t make me no lonely man

Don’t try to push me out of your plan

Don’t try to kick out love aside

Just wait before you tell me goodbye

Mmm yeah

You really, really, really, really, really ought to think about it

How I give it

You really, really, really ought to think about it

How I live it

One million times

I better stay up all night
