You've been staying out late almost every night
While I sit home and wait for you
Sometimes until it's daylight
You think that I'm a fool
That I don't know what it's all about
But I think that you're out doing
What I'm here doing without
Girl, I wanna tell you that you're
Late hours are bringing me down
You're so tired when you come home at night
That you don't even care that I'm around
If you'd just love me like you used to
You'd make me wanna jump and shout
But, I think that you're out doing
What I'm here doing without
--- Instrumental ---
(What I'm here doing without)
It's a sad situation when you don't
Get no loving at home
And if you don't watch your step, girl,
You're gonna find yourself all alone
Still you think that you can get by
As long as you can keep me in doubt
But, I think that you're out doing
What I'm here doing without
I don't know how long
That I can put up with what
You're putting me through
Half the time I don't know
Where you are or what you are up to
And you don't even care when
You think that I'm a little put out
And I think that you're out doing
What I'm here doing without
Well I know that you're out doing
What I'm here doing without...
