Don't bring me secondhand love
Don't bring me secondhand love

Now, you went out tonight
Who you been hanging around this time?
I don't care if he's black or white
I just don't like his kind

I don't want your secondhand love
I don't want your secondhand love
I don't want your secondhand love
Don't bring me secondhand love

He's been leaving his scent on you
I can sense it from a mile
Yet all my money is spent on you
But you're still selling your smile

Don't bring me secondhand love
Don't bring me secondhand love
I don't want your secondhand love
I don't want your secondhand love

Give your love and keep blood between brothers
Give your love and keep blood between brothers

I don't want your secondhand

I can guess where you've been tonight, yeah
You've been hanging on the street
Wearing your dress too tight
Showin' out to anyone you meet

Well, I don't want your secondhand love
I don't want your secondhand love
Don't bring me your secondhand love
Don't bring me your secondhand love

I want the first call        on your kiss

Answer me one question, can you promise me this?
I want my defenses laying in your hand
I don't want to rest in the palm of another man

I don't want your secondhand love
Don't want, don't want your secondhand love
I don't want, I don't want your secondhand love
I don't want, I don't want your secondhand love
