Somethin for Nothin

lyrics

Undo. Undid. Undone. Whatcha gonna do now? 
You broke it, then fixed it w/ duct tape
Now you're parading it around. Yelling so loud. 
Looks like you're drawing a crowd. 

Then you cry like a baby when maybe's not good enough for you. 
Your tall eyes are flowing you a river running deep and wide and blue. 
Whatcha gonna do? And all I ever wanted was you.

It's more like a somethin and less like there's nothing there at all. 
The 4th time was like the 1st one, I still wasn't waiting on your call.
No not at all. 
You're not keeping your eye on the ball.

Then you cry like a baby when maybe's not good enough for you. 
Your tall eyes are flowing you a river running deep and wide and blue. 
Whatcha gonna do? And all I ever wanted was you.

Wrong words at the right time.
This poetry doesn't gotta rhyme.
Why, why, always asking why?

I gave you somethin for nothing to turn it into everything but you
You won't have none, don't want none.
Oh, the standards you have set for you
Whatchu gonna do? All I ever wanted was you 

Then you cry like a baby when maybe's not good enough for you. 
Your tall eyes are flowing you a river running deep and wide and blue. 
Whatcha gonna do? And all I ever wanted was you.
