You never asked me what I wanted You only asked me why I never thought that so much trouble Was restin' on my reply I could say it was the rights when I was lonely And you were the only one who'd come I could tell you that I like your sensitivity When you know it's the way that you walk
[Chorus:] Why do you have to say there there's always someone Who can do it better than I can? But don't you think that I know that walking on the water Won't make me a miracle man?
Baby's gotta have the things she wants You know she's gotta have the things she loves She's got a ten-inch bamboo cigarette holder And her black patent leather gloves And I'm doing everything just tryin' to please her Even crawling around on all fours Oh, I thought by now that it was gonna be easy But she still seems to want for more
[Chorus:] Oh yeah
Never given you a bad reputation Just because you've never been denied You try to say you've done it all before Baby, you know that you just get tired Yet everybody loves you so much, girl I just don't know how you stand the strain Oh I-I'm the one who's here tonight And I don't want to do it all in vain
