Baby Don't You Do It

Lyrics: Holland, Dozier, Holland
Music: Holland, Dozier, Holland

Played by Phil Lesh & Friends in a 2016 show celebrating Stu Allen's birthday.

Baby don't you do it
Don't do it
Don't you break my heart
Please don't do it, don't you break my heart

I've sacrificed to make you happy
Get nothing for myself
Now you want to leave me
For the love of someone else

My pride is all gone
Whether I'm right or wrong
I need you, baby
To keep on keeping on

You know I try to do my best
I try to do my best
Don't do it
Don't you break my heart
Please, don't break my heart

My biggest mistake was loving you too much
And letting you know
'Cause now you've got me where you want me
And you won't let me go

If my heart was made of glass
Then you would surely see
How much heartache and misery, girl
You've been causing me

I try to do my best
I try to do my best
Don't do it
Don't you break my heart
Please, don't break my heart

Go down to the river
And there I'll be
I'm gonna jump in, girl
'Cause you don't care for me

Open up your eyes
Can't you see I love you
Open up your heart
Can't you see I need you

Don't do it
Don't you break my heart
Please, don't break my heart
