Barbara Lynn – This Is The Thanks I Get lyrics

I heard that you're gonna leave me
And there are rumours, baby, yeah
It's another girl, yeah

I worked my fingers
Down to the bone, yeah
To try to make you
A happy home, yeah

So now you're leaving me
This is the thanks I get, baby
This is the thanks I get
This is the thanks I get, baby

I worked my fingers, baby
Worked 'em down down to the bone, yeah
To try to make you a happy home
Babe, baby, babe

I feel so sad, yeah
Makes me feel so bad
I wanna turn my head, baby
Look up to people

But I'm so ashamed, uh huh
So doggone shamed, yeah
You know I'm ashamed, baby
So doggone shamed, yeah

But this is the thanks I get, yeah
This is the thanks I get, baby
This is the thanks I get
Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Wonderful thanks, yeah

    Instead of being paid I've been robbed instead of being appreciated I'm depreciating intead of being exalted I've been diminished I gotta get what I was looking for and expecting from you somewhere else perhaps in somebody else what a 'blow' sent my way from you of all the people not you bad news have I received concerning you and I regarding tomorrow starting today there is something to good guys and gals finish last I never thought I would have entertained that notion I tell ya the 'chokin' kinda feelin' I could jump in the nearest ocean (by the way this my favorite song by barbara lynn and one of my favorite songs ever!)
