Words and music by rick nielsen
You say jump, I said how high
You say no, I don't ask why
You treat me like a fool, like you do
Kick me when I'm down and out
Out with you I wish I was
Instead I'm sittin' all alone tonight, well

You've got a one track mind
Wish you could just read mine
I hope you will in time

You say jump, I said how high
Love you but I don't know why
Don't say no, not tonight
You call me or I'll call you
Just as long as we get through
I'll do anything for you tonight

Second verse
All dressed up no place to go
I say yes and you say no
What's goin' on
I really want to know
You've got a one track mind
Wish you could just read mine
I hope you will in time

You say jump, I said how high
Love you but I don't know why
Don't say no, not tonight
You call me or I'll call you
Just as long as we get through
I'll do anything for you tonight

I've loved you from the start
You only broke my heart
I think I'm losing my mind
I've felt this way for years
I'm the one who really cares
Don't leave me here on my own
You say jump, I said how high
Love you but I don't know why
Don't say no, not tonight

I've loved you from the start
You only broke my heart
I'm sittin' all alone tonight

Kick me when I'm down and out
Out with you I wish I was
Instead I'm sittin' here on my own
You've got a one track mind
Wish you could just read mine
I hope you will in time

You say jump, I said how high
Love you but I don't know why
Don't say no, not tonight
