"I Gotcha"

(As recorded by Joe Tex)
JOE TEX

I gotcha, uh huh huh huh
You thought you got away from me, didn't you uh huh huh
You thought I didn't see you, now didn't you uh huh huh
Your tried to sneak by me, now didn't you uh huh huh
You thought you was being slick, now didn't you uh huh huh
You thought you was being slick, now didn't you uh huh huh
Now give me what you promised me, give it here, come on.

You promised me the day that you quit your boyfriend
I'd be the next one to ease on in
You promised me it would be just us two yeah
And I'd be the only man kissing on you yeah
Now kiss me, hold it a long time hold it
Don't turn it a-loose now hold it a little bit longer
Now hold it, come on, hold it, hold it, hold it
Ease up on me now get back
Good God the girl's all right y'all.

You made me promise and you're gonna stick to it
You shouldn't have promised if you wasn't gonna do it
You saw me and ran in another direction
I'll teach you to play with my affection
Now give it here, you never should have promised to me
Give it here, don't hold back now
Give it here, don't say nothing
Just give it here, come on, give it here
Give it here, give it here, give it here
Give it to me now.

I gotcha you shouldn't have promised to me
I gotcha you never should have promised to me
I gotcha give it on here, I gotcha
You thought you got away from me, didn't ya
Because I gotcha, give it on here now.
