Lyrics

Can't Let Her Get Away (Michael Jackson)
I thought she had to have it
Since the first time she came
Who knows the situation
Mysteries do remain
And now I wonder why
I break down when I cry
Is it something I said
Or is it just a lie
(Is it just a lie)

I try so hard to love you
Some things take time and shame
I think the whole world of you
Your thoughts of me remain
Iíll play the fool for you
Iíll change the rules for you
Just say it and Iíll do
Just make this thing come true
(Make a dream come true)

If I let her get away
Though Iím begginí on my knees
Iíll be cryiní every day
Knowing the girl that got away

I canít let
I canít let her get away
I canít let
I canít let her get away
No
I canít let
I canít let her get away
I canít let
I canít let her get away

I tried to mastermind it
By saying let it be
But everytime I did it
The hurt came back at me
I told you that I need you
A thousand times and why
I played the fool for you
And still you said goodbye
(Still you said goodbye)

If I let her get away
Then the world will have to see
A fool who lives alone
And the fool who set you free

I canít let
I canít let her get away
I canít let
I canít let her get away
I canít let
I canít let her get away
No
I canít let
I canít let her get away

I got the feeling
Sheís never gonna stop
I got the feeling
Sheís never gonna try
I got the feeling
Sheís never gonna stop
I got the feeling
But sheís never gonna know
Stop, sheís on a highest hill
I got the feeling
But sheís never gonna take it
I got the feeling
I got the feeling
I got the feeling
But sheís never gonna

Canít let her go
No
Canít let her go
No

I canít let
I canít let her get away
No, no
I canít let
She wonít, she wonít let me
I canít let her get away

Ad libs
