Song Description

A love song with a twist

Story Behind the Song

I wanted to write something about not taking my soulmate's love for granted that was fun andcatchy because he is not a ballad kind of guy.


I?m Careful
© 2005 Martha Ann Brooks (BMI)

You won?t catch me lookin at another man
Cause I?m careful
Careful not to break my baby?s heart
I?m careful mornin?, noon and night
Not to take his true love lightly
So you won?t catch me lookin around
No cause I?m careful

You won?t catch me slippin out and tellin lies
Cause I?m careful
Careful not to lose the love I?ve found
My baby?s love is like a jewel
And my Mama didn?t raise no fool

So you won?t catch me slippin around
No Cause I?m careful


All those folks lookin? around
Thinkin only of what?s missin? and not what they?ve found
They?re gonna mess up and lose the love of their lives
Not me ? No Sir!
I?m doin? what?s right

So You won?t catch me prowlin? like an alley cat
Cause I?m careful
Careful to stay in my own backyard
Folks around here know I won?t stray
This kitty ain?t the kind to play

So you won?t catch me lookin? around,
I won?t be struttin? my stuff all over this town
You won?t catch me slippin? around
No, Cause I?m careful, I?m careful, I?m careful
