Sugarhill Gang, The - Bad News Don't Bother Me Lyrics




Aah...

Bad news, don't bother me
Bad news, just let me be
Bad news, don't bother me

Bad news, don't bother me
Bad news, just let me be
Bad news, don't bother me

Take a look into your heart, it's never too late
To make a change in things
When you see it going round
Don't expect someone to be you, play your part
You've got your own thing to do - being you
You never know what you can do
Life expects you to go through
Don't cry
Don't cry

What do you get from taking chances all your life
But bits and broken dreams, a broken heart
All kinds of situations you will run into
But you can cope with them if you want to
You never know what you can do
Life expects you to go through
Don't cry
Don't cry

Bad news, don't bother me, no
(Don't you bother me)
Bad news, just let me be, yeah
(Just let me be)
Bad news, don't bother me, no

I'm not looking for a broken heart
I'm not looking for a broken heart

Bad news, don't bother me, no
(Don't you bother me)
Bad news, just let me be, yeah
(Just let me be)
Bad news, don't bother me, no

Take a look into your heart
It's never too late to make a change in things
When you see it going round
Don't expect someone to be you, play your part
You've got your own thing to do - being you
You never know what you can do
Life expects you to go through
Don't cry
Don't cry

Bad news, don't bother me, no no
(Don't you bother me)
Bad news, just let me be, yeah
(Just let me be)
Bad news, don't bother me, no
(Don't you bother me)
Bad news, just let me be
(Just let me be)
Bad news, don't bother me, no
(Don't you bother me)
Bad news, just let me be, yeah
(Just let me be)
Bad news, don't bother me, no
(Don't you bother me)
Bad news, just let me be
(Just let me be)
Bad news, don't bother me
(Don't you bother me)
Bad news, just let me be

Never too late
(To make a change)
Never too late

Never too late
('Cause you can change)
Never too late

What do you get from taking chances all your life
But bits and broken dreams, a broken heart
All kinds of situations you will run into
But you can cope with them if you want to
You never know what you can do when
Life expects you to go through
Don't cry
Don't cry

Bad news, don't bother me, no
(Don't you bother me)
Bad news, just let me be, yeah
(Won't you let me be)
Bad news, don't bother me, no
(No, I'm not looking for a broken heart)
Bad news, just let me be
(No)
Bad news, don't bother me
(Hey)
Bad news, just let me be
(Oh, won't you let me be)
Bad news, don't bother me
(Don't you bother me)
Bad news, just let me be
(Just let me be)

Take a look into your heart
(Take a look)
It ain't never too late to change
There's more to life than things
Never too late
Never too late
Never too late
Never too late
Never too late (bad news)
Never too late
Never too late

Never too late (oh, I can't make it on my own)
Never too late
Never too late (take a look into your heart)
Never too late
Never too late (change your life for a start)
Never too late
It's never too late to make a change
'Cause you can change
Never too late
Never too late
In Jesus' name [?]

    unique, special stuff that's never going to be duplicated again

  4. Hiphophead1

    bad news dont bother me

  5. phrsh293

    kinda like the foreshadowing of what Drake and other artists are doing now, singing on their records. 

  6. MusicLover P

    I haven't played this album in years i still have my copy on Vinyl.

  7. Aktion 1804

    My Partner SCORP 5 finger this album from freeway records. Played this album till it cracked

  8. Morrisman Smith

    Loved this song as a kid thanks for the post

  9. tonywallacess45

    Hey Airborne, I was in college when this came out-Howard U. It never got the credit it deserved, A sweet tune during the golden age of R&B 75-95.

  10. revehimifilms

    @ DDJones That's AWESOME!!!!

  11. Rogim

    Perfect, my favourite rap group

  12. DDJones107

    The members of Sugarhill Gang were not and are not vocalists! The lead vocals and many of the background harmonies were done by Craig Derry who worked with them back then, and is now a celebrity vocal coach, working with many of today's artists...Mary J, Drake, Alicia Keys, etc. Check him out on YouTube under "Papa Craig finally sings..." or google him to learn more about his vocal aerobics classes in NYC. This one I'm sure of, because...he's my big brother!

    i guess this group was doing a bridging the gap thing. they pumped the rap thing but this song and "here i am" showed what their roots were. very good harmony,along with the instrumentation. i was in a band at that time and we would have died to have this song.

  14. cityrayman

    I remember being stationed at Ft Bragg, NC when this album came out. Of course the big hit was Rappers Delight but I fell in love with this groove. A big shout out to Duggie 118th, should you ever read this, fong memories! This still sounds good 30 years later! Thanks for posting!

  15. Diamond Jim

    I bought the cassete tape of this on ebay just to listen to this song on the bus.

  16. remiem6070

    Sweet and mellow with a nice bass line. Even a bit Kool & the Gang-ish or EWF-ish. Music gone to shit nowadays....

    VaporMega

    So right!!

  17. Santa

    great pick me up tune, pure quality.

  18. ramon kiner

    good track
