All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)

All you fellows who have someone
and you really care, yeah, yeah
Well it's all in your hands
but you better beware, yeah yeah
Somebody's out to steal your lady
A few of your friends they sure look shady
Blades are long, clenched tight in their fist
Aimin' straight at your back
And I don't think they'll miss

(What they do?!)
(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)

I keep gettin' all these visits from my friends, yeah, what they doin to me
They come to my house
again and again and again and again, yeah
So are they there to see my woman
I don't even be home but they just keep on comin'
What can I do to get on the right track
Wish they'd take some of these knives out' my back

(What they do?!)
(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)
(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)

(What they do?!)
(They smile in your face)
Smiling faces...
smiling faces sometimes tell lies (Back stabbers)
I don't need no...
low down, dirty (bastards) (Back stabbers)
Damn damn damn damn damn damn damn damn damn
(Back stabbers)
I mean your neighbor...
