"You Can't Do That" Lyrics

by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

As Released by the Beatles (1964)

I got something to say
That might cause you pain
If I catch you talking
To that boy again.

I'm gonna let you down
And leave you flat
Because I told you before
Oh you can't do that.

Well, it's the second time
I caught you talking to him
Do I have to tell you one more time
I think it's a sin?

I think I'll let you down (let you down)
And leave you flat
(Gonna let you down and leave you flat)
Because I told you before
Oh you can't do that.

Everybody's green
'cos I'm the one who won your love
But if they'd seen
You talking that way
They'd laugh in my face.

So please listen to me
If you wanna stay mine
I can't help my feelings
I go outta my mind.

I'm gonna let you down (let you down)
And leave you flat
(Gonna let you down and leave you flat)
Because I told you before
Oh you can't do that - no!

You can't do that
You can't do that
You can't do that
You can't do that
You can't do that.

Everybody's green
'cos I'm the one who won your love
But if they'd seen
You talking that way
They'd laugh in my face.

So please listen to me
If you wanna stay mine
I can't help my feelings
I go outta my mind.

I'm gonna let you down (let you down)
And leave you flat
(Gonna let you down and leave you flat)
Because I told you before
Oh you can't do that.
