Stephanie Mills - Rough Trade Lyrics




When there's no moon in sight
Doobley gets an appetite
For tender young things
Like the lion stalks
When girls for their walks
They become his prey

Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Never mess around with rough trade
Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Bad boys will steal your heart away
And take you to the break

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy
Doobley is a bad boy

In the tropic zone
Young flowers all alone
Set out for a change of pace
But to their surprise
When they realize
Doobley had made his play

Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Never mess around with rough trade
Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Bad boys will steal your heart away
And take you to the break

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy
Doobley is a bad boy

Bad boy, bad boy
He's such a bad boy, bad boy
He's a bad boy, bad boy
Bad boy, bad boy

He's just rough trade
He's so bad
He's just rough trade
He's so bad
He's bad

Well, that's the price you pay
At least that's what they say
For reaching for the moon
Now her plans and schemes
Her wishes and her dreams
Will never bloom

Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Never mess around with rough trade
Didn't they warn you
Your mother should have told you
Bad boys will steal your heart away
And take you to the break

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy

Doobley is a bad boy
He's just rough trade
Doobley is a bad boy

  5. petercox9

    such a provocative title! i can't believe madonna, culture club, duran duran, or billy idol didn't use it as a song title first. stephanie seems too prim and proper and sheltered to truly appreciate what rough trade is.

    Lucy Ebony

    petercox9 but she owned the song anyway!

    Stephanie Mills existed before any of them, she was the it woman so being prim and proper was never her persona she was a damn powerhouse!!She was the Chaka Khan of that era

    petercox9

    @quaishilitha pace for me, she'll always be the magical, soulful dorothy from the wiz. and there's certainly no rough trade in oz.

    ThorSmith

    @quaishilitha pace I love Stephanie Mills too but Chaka Khan was the Chaka Khan of that era! 😉
