Lyrics / Paroles


LOVE OH LOVE OH LOVE SWEET LOVE
LET ME TELL YOU NOW, UH, UH

GAVE ALL MY HEART, TREATED YOU TENDERLY
I HAD TO TAKE A WHOLE LOT OF HEARTBREAK JUST TO MAKE YOU SEE

YOU AIN’T GIVING ME WHAT I WANT
[SO I’M GONNA GET IT ALL BACK]
TRYING SO HARD TO CHANGE YOUR MIND
[‘CAUSE IT’S RUNNING ON A ONE WAY TRACK]
ALL I WANT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF LOVE
[‘CAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT]
I’M GONNA GIVE IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE
[‘CAUSE YOU AIN’T WHERE IT’S AT]

GOT HUNG UP FOR HER PERSONALITY
BUT ALL IT DID WAS MAKE A FOOL OUT ME
I THOUGHT THAT I WAS GIVING YOU SATISFACTION
BUT I FOUND OUT THAT IT WAS A FALSE REACTION

YOU AIN’T GIVING ME WHAT I WANT
[SO I’M GONNA GET IT ALL BACK]
TRYING SO HARD TO CHANGE YOUR MIND
[‘CAUSE IT’S RUNNING ON A ONE WAY TRACK]
ALL I WANT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF LOVE
[‘CAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT]
I’M GONNA GIVE IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE
[‘CAUSE YOU AIN’T WHERE IT’S AT]

LOVING YOU IS ONE MISTAKE
A FEELING I BEEN CONFUSED
THAT I FOUND OUT AT ONCE
I WAS BEING MISUSED
IT HURT ME TO MY HEART
TO FIND FROM THE VERY BEGINNING
ALL THAT I WAS INSTORE
WAS AN UNHAPPY ENDING

YOU AIN’T GIVING ME WHAT I WANT
[SO I’M GONNA GET IT ALL BACK]
I’M GONNA GIVE IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE
[‘CAUSE YOU AIN’T WHERE IT’S AT]

WELL, WELL, WELL
WHO WILL YOU CHOOSE
WHO WILL IT BE
REPRESENTING ME
WELL, WELL, WELL
WHO WILL YOU APPROVE

YOU AIN’T GIVING ME WHAT I WANT
[SO I’M GONNA GET IT ALL BACK]
TRYING SO HARD TO CHANGE YOUR MIND
[‘CAUSE IT’S RUNNING ON A ONE WAY TRACK]
ALL I WANT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF LOVE
[‘CAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT]
I’M GONNA GIVE IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE
[‘CAUSE YOU AIN’T WHERE IT’S AT]

NOW THAT I FINALLY GOT MYSELF TOGETHER
CAN’T WALK AWAY WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE
KNOWING THE PAST HAS GONE FOREVER
MEMORY OF YOU WILL BE HARD TO ERASE

YOU AIN’T GIVING ME WHAT I WANT
[SO I’M GONNA GET IT ALL BACK]
I’M GONNA GIVE IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE
[‘CAUSE YOU AIN’T WHERE IT’S AT]

WELL, WELL, WELL
WHO WILL YOU CHOOSE
WHO WILL IT BE
REPRESENTING ME
WELL, WELL, WELL
WHO WILL YOU APPROVE

YOU AIN’T GIVING ME WHAT I WANT
[SO I’M GONNA GET IT ALL BACK]
TRYING SO HARD TO CHANGE YOUR MIND
[‘CAUSE IT’S RUNNING ON A ONE WAY TRACK]
ALL I WANT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF LOVE
[‘CAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT]
I’M GONNA GIVE IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE
[‘CAUSE YOU AIN’T WHERE IT’S AT]
