Now I don´t want to be your slave
You´re trying to drive me to an early grave
All I ever hear, is that you live an´ breathe for me
But, all you ever do, babe, is shake my tree

´Cos you keep on pushing, baby
Like you never, ever been in love before

I told you once an´ I told you twice
I ain´t no schoolboy you can sacrifice
You want my love an´ you want it now
You try to love me, baby, but you don´t know how

So you keep on pushing, baby
Like you never, ever been in love before

I need love an´ I need time
An´ a little bit of both, if you want to be a friend of mine
I don´t want no woman, drive me outta my head
An´ you´re the kind of girl, guaranteed to wreck my bed

Love is what you need
But, you cut down to the bone an´ make me bleed
I give you everything an´ still you cry
Ooh, mama, the price of loving you is way too high

But, you keep on talking, baby, I´ve heard it all before
Now I don´t want you hanging around, or kicking at my door

But, you keep on pushing, mama
Like you never, ever been in love before

I know love an´ I know shame
An´ I ain´t gonna get caught up in your game
It took a little time to make me see
I ain´t lookin´ for a woman like you to shake my tree

So keep on talking, baby, keep on hangin´ around
Everything you do to me, is sure to drag me down

An´ you keep on pushing, mama
Like you never, ever been in love before

Shake my tree

I don´t want to be your slave
You´re trying to drive me to an early grave
You keep on talking, no matter what you say
I´ve had enough of your kind of love, to last me all my days

So keep on pushing baby, I´ve heard it all before
I don´t want you hanging around, or kicking at my door

Now I don´t want your loving, baby, I can´t take it anymore
I don´t want you hanging around, kicking at my door
If I see your face again, I´ll give you what´s in store
But, you´ll keep on pushing, baby
´Cos you´ve never, ever been in love before
