Here's my story, it's sad but true
It's about a girl that I once knew
She took my love and she ran around
With every single guy in town

I shoulda known it from the very start
This girl would leave me with a broken heart
Now listen people what I'm telling you
A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue

Might miss this girl and the smile on her face
The touch of her hand, this girl's warm embrace
So if you don't wanna cry like I do
Best keep away from-a Runaround Sue, go

Well Sue likes to monkey around, yeah yeah
She'll love you then she'll put you down
So people let me put you wise
Sue goes out with other guys

Here's the moral of the story from that guy who knows
I fell in love and my love still grows
Ask any fool that she ever knew, they'll tell ya
Keep away from-a Runaround Sue

Back to the bridge!
Well Sue likes to monkey around, yeah yeah
She'll love you then she'll put you down
People let me put you wise
Sue goes out with other guys

Here's the moral and the story from the guy who knows
I fell in love and my love still grows
Ask any fool that she ever knew, they'll tell ya
Keep away from-a Runaround Sue, oh
