Don't Do (Älä Tee)

Don't Do

I'm known to persuade
I know how to tell people
things they want to hear

It took me years to get used to this
but now that I'm so skilled
I don't really think about it

Anything you could save until you have a man you really want,
don't do with me
Anything you could save until you have a man you're really looking for,
don't do with me

You are so innocent in that way
that you believe every single thing I say
you believe if I tell you that you're beautiful

And it's true, I'm not lying
but it's much more interesting
why I'm telling you that

Anything you could save until you have a man you really want,
don't do with me
Anything you could save until you have a man you're really looking for,
don't do with me

If you have a man you really want
and you have a man you're really looking for
you have a man who remembers your name in the morning

If you have a man you really want
and you have a man you're really looking for
you have a man who makes the mornings laukeita*

Anything you could save until you have a man you really want,
don't do with me
Anything you could save until you have a man you're really looking for,
don't do with me

Don't do anything like that with me
Don't do anything like that with me
Don't do anything like that with me

* The word "laukeita" doesn't mean anything in Finnish (it's not uncommon for Finnish songwriters to make up words). I'm imagining it's an adjective used to describe a nice, peaceful morning with no rush. But that's just me, haha. Nevertheless, it means something positive!

Thanks to the complexity of Finnish, I had to do quite a bit of adjusting in the chorus, so it's by no means a direct translation.
