Don't You Want Me

Lyrics

playYou were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
playWhen I met you
playI picked you out, I shook you up
playAnd turned you around
playTurned you into someone new

playNow five years later on
playyou've got the world at your feet
playSuccess has been so easy for you
playBut don't forget
playit's me who put you where you are now
playAnd I can put you back down too.

playDon't. Don't you want me?
playYou know I can't believe it
playWhen I hear that you won't see me
playDon't. Don't you want me?
playYou know I don't believe you
playwhen you say that you don't need me

playIt's much too late to find
playWhen you think you've changed your mind
playYou'd better change it back or
playWe will both be sorry

playDon't you want me, baby?
playDon't you want me? Oh!
playDon't you want me, baby?
playDon't you want me? Oh!

playI was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
playThat much is true
playBut even then
playI knew I'd find a much better place
playEither with or without you
playThe five years we had
playHave been such good at times
playI still love you
playBut now
playI think it's time I live my life on my own
playI guess it's just what I must do

playDon't. Don't you want me?
playYou know I can't believe it
playWhen I hear that you won't see me
playDon't. Don't you want me?
playYou know I don't believe you
playwhen you say that you don't need me

playIt's much too late to find
playWhen you think you've changed your mind
playYou'd better change it back or
playwe will both be sorry

playDon't you want me, baby?
playDon't you want me? Oh!
playDon't you want me, baby?
playDon't you want me? Oh!

playDon't you want me, baby?
playDon't you want me? Oh!
playDon't you want me, baby?
playDon't you want me? Oh!

playDon't you want me, baby?
