Emotions, The - Don't Ask My Neighbors Lyrics

You're wondering if
I care about you
Is there some cause
That I should doubt you

Oh, I can see, boy
That you don't know me very well
Uh uh, you're so unsure

And you run here and there
To ask my feelings
Friends only guess
They can't say really, oh

Don't ask my neighbors
Don't ask the friends I hang around
(Never ask the friends I hang around)
Uh uh, don't be afraid
To come to me (come to me)
Don't ask my neighbors

Come to me (come to me)
Don't be afraid of
What you'll see (what you'll see)
You'll find I love you (ooh, I love you)
Come to me (come to me)
Don't be afraid

You ask all my friends
If I'm the same, boy
You don't understand
You think I'm changing, ohh

Don't ask my neighbors
(Don't ask my neighbor)
Don't ask the friends I hang around

(Never ask the friends I hang around)
Uh uh (no) don't be afraid
(Never) to come to me (come on)

Don't ask my neighbors (ooh, ooh)
Come to me (come on, come on)
Don't be afraid of what you'll see
(I'll make you feel at ease, baby)
You'll find I love you (ooh, hoo)
Come to me (come on)
Don't be afraid

I, I will, ooh.....

Don't ask my neighbors
Come to me (come on)
Don't be afraid of what you'll see
You'll find I love you
Come to me (baby)
Don't be afraid

Hurry, come to me
Come to me, come to me

Don't ask my neighbors
(I'll be real) come to me
Don't be afraid of what you'll see
You'll find I love you
Come to me, don't be afraid

    Silky smooth cut, as It takes me back down memory lane when I was going to UNLV back in 77, 78, and I would play this jam all the time. By the way if you guys Didn't know ...............Gary Taylor, The Compassion C.D. does ( Don't ask My Neighbor )in the "Brothers Version" and it is Very Nicely Done. Trust Me..........

  13. Dr. Dee

    Man-oh-man, I love this one. It goes to show you that communication is what's most important in a relationship, and that we should not be afraid to ask our special someone any question that may be troubling us regarding our relationship, and not to pursue the oppinions of others.They might lead us down the wrong path.

  14. Levi Miller

    Before social media and cellular phones,there were great meaningful songs playing on the radio. Sexless meaningful songs.
