DON'T LIKE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT MY LOVE

Writers: Holly Knight/Gregory Darling

 

I see the way you look at my love

the way she holds here head up high

My girl compares it all to no one

Maybe someday I’ll tell you a hundred reasons why

I’ve been searching high and lo only dreaming

she came into my life so now you know

and that’s why I’m telling you

 

Don’t like the way you look at my love

Don’t like the way you look her down

No matter what you do

hanging around ain’t good for you

Don’t like the way you look at my love

my my love

 

Now if she wanted she could leave me

don’t have her under lock and key

My girl’s no souvenir

She may look like a queen but yo better not stare

I wouldn’t like to see you one step over the line

 

I’ve been searching high and lo only dreaming

she came into my life so now you know

and that’s why I’m telling you

 

Don’t like the way you look at my love

Don’t like the way you look her down

No matter what you do

hanging around ain’t good for you

Don’t like the way you look at my love

my my love

 

I see hungry eyes

around every corner as I turn my head

You’d like to take a bite

wrap her in your arms and put her to bed

do what wanna do

say what you wanna say

fell what you wanna feel

But don’t come messing with me

 

I’ve been searching high and lo only dreaming

she came into my life so now you know

and that’s why I’m telling you

 

Don’t like the way you look at my love

Don’t like the way you look her down

No matter what you do

hanging around ain’t good for you

Don’t like the way you look at my love

my my love

1. DON'T LIKE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT MY LOVE
 

DON’T LIKE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT MY LOVE/     writers: Holly Knight/ Gregory Darling

 

I wrote this song with Gregory Darling who was in a group in the eighties called Darling Cruel. We wrote many great songs together that have still yet to see the light of day. I’ve still got my fingers crossed.

Russ’ record was produced by Phil Ramone and didn’t make much noise. However he became a successful backup singer and player for the band Aerosmith. – HK
