lyrics

Don’t tell that boy-oh
Hey sister I’m talking to you!
Don’t tell that boy-oh
Hey sister I’m talking to you!
Don’t tell that boy-oh
Hey sister, don’t ya whisper what I told you
Don’t tell that boy-oh
I’m gonna love him oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Down at the schoolyard Saturday night
All the girls dancing, boys ready to fight
Little sister talking to the one I love
I said shh sister shh

Don’t tell that boy-oh
Hey sister I’m talking to you!
Don’t tell that boy-oh
Hey sister I’m talking to you!
Don’t tell that boy-oh
Hey sister, don’t ya whisper what I told you
Don’t tell that boy-oh
I’m gonna love him oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Don’t tell that girl-oh
Hey brother I’m talking to you!
Don’t tell that girl-oh
Hey brother I’m talking to you!
Don’t tell that girl-oh
Hey brother don’t ya tell another what I told you
Don’t tell that girl-oh
I’m gonna love her oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Down at the pool hot summer’s day
Bikini girls, they’re looking our way!
Little brother goes over to the one I love
I said shh brother shh

Don’t tell that girl-oh
Hey brother I’m talking to you!
Don’t tell that girl-oh
Hey brother I’m talking to you!
Don’t tell that girl-oh
Hey brother don’t ya tell another what I told you
Don’t tell that girl-oh
I’m gonna love her oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
