Don't You Want Me

Lyrics

play You were working as a   in a cocktail bar
play When I   you
play I   you out, I   you up
play And   you around
play Turned you into someone  

play Now five   later on
play you've got the world at your  
play Success has been so   for you
play But don't  
play it's me who put you where you are  
play And I can put you   down too.

play Don't. Don't you want me?
play You know I can't believe it
play When I hear that you won't   me
play Don't. Don't you want me?
play You know I don't   you
play When you say that you don't   me

play It's much too   to find
play When you think you've changed your  
play You'd better change it back or
play We will both be  

play Don't you want me, baby?
play Don't you want me? Oh!
play Don't you want me, baby?
play Don't you want me? Oh!

play I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
play That   is true
play But    
play I knew I'd find a much better  
play Either with or   you
play The five years we had
play Have been such good at times
play I still love you
play But now
play I think it's time I live my life on my own
play I   it's just what I must do

play Don't. Don't you want me?
play You know I can't believe it
play when I hear that you won't see me
play Don't. Don't you want me?
play You know I don't believe you
play when you say that you don't need me

play It's much too late to find
play When you think you've changed your mind
play You'd better change it back or
play we will both be sorry

play Don't you want me, baby?
play Don't you want me? Oh!
play Don't you want me, baby?
play Don't you want me? Oh!

play Don't you want me, baby?
play Don't you want me? Oh!
play Don't you want me, baby?
play Don't you want me? Oh!

play Don't you want me, baby?
