Baker, Anita - Watch Your Step Lyrics




I know the kind of pain you offer
Baby, I've felt your kind of pain before
Change your mind like revolving doors
Change your women like you change your clothes

[Chorus:]
I'm telling you
You better watch your step
You'll fall and hurt yourself one day
You better watch your step
You'll fall and hurt yourself one day

I don't understand your thinking
Don't know why you do the things you do
Break my heart, and disregard my feelings
Breaking hearts' some kind of game to you

[Chorus]

It's so easy to tease me
It's so easy to let me down
It's so easy to mislead me
It's so easy to leave me hanging around
No where to come down.

Maybe, we should just forget this
Baby, just throw me out of your mind
I won't stay, not while you mistreat me
I won't stay, It's just a waste of my time

I'm telling you
You better watch your step
You'll fall and hurt yourself one day
Baby listen, you better watch step
You'll fall and hurt yourself one day

    I just rediscovered this song after over 20 something years!! This album came out the year I was born. My mom and my aunts loved Anita and played her all the time when I was growing up. I grew to love Anita for myself. After Whitney she's my favorite of all time! So when I stumbled onto this gem yesterday I shed a few happy tears from awesome childhood memories that involved this and so many Anita songs. #classic

    Eventually all those who hurt others will make a mistake and karma will come around. I just want to hug and help all those who have been hurt and disappointed....I have been too...but...it's just life....


    so..be kind, compassionate, and be honest and try to help others when they cross into your paths,,,,kindness, support, listening....helps more than ignorance.

  65. Angela Watson

    So True love Ms Anita Baker.

  66. Indian Goddess

    *me & my younger brother

  67. Indian Goddess

    this song actually reminds me of mom's ex-husband...he would purposely initiate confrontations as an excuse to lay hands on her (most times as my younger brother helplessly watched-ages around 11 & 9) & even tried disciplining us.Since the divorce years ago, he's gone to prison for 8 yrs (of course he denies raping the caucasian female), remarried someone who turned out to be bipolar & he has a bad case of diabetes. Needless to say he had the audacity to call me his daughter, threaten my biological father then ask me in regards to the current wife, "why is this happening to me...was never going through this many problems with your mother?"Fast forward to adulthood I grabbed the 1st opportunity to ask why...his lame excuse was he's never had children (26 yrs old)...but hasn't offered a reason why he abused our mother...NOTHING would've excused his actions...he will ALWAYS be a monster to me

  68. Dolls Way!!!

    SIMPLE BEAUTIFUL!!! Listening in 2018!!!

  69. Al Gibbs
