You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
When I met you. I picked you out
I shook you up

And turned you around
Turned you into someone new.

Now five years later on you've got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you.
But don't forget it's me who put you where you are now

And I can put you back down too.

Don't
Don't you want me? - You know I can't believe it
When I hear that you won't see me.
Don't
Don't you want me? - You know I don't believe you
When you say that you don't need me.
It's much too late to find
When you think you've changed your mind

You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry.

Don't you want me baby?
Don't you want me - oh?. . .
Don't you want me baby?
Don't you want me - oh?. . .


I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar -
That much is true.
But even then I knew I'd find a much better place
Either with or without you.
The five years we have had have been such good times
I still love you.
But now I think it's time I live my life on my own

I guess it's just what I must do.

Don't
Don't you want me? -
You know I can't believe it
When I hear that you won't see me.
Don't
Don't you want me? -
You know I don't believe you
When you say that you don't need me.
It's much too late to find
When you think you've changed your mind

You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry.

Don't you want me baby?
Don't you want me - oh?. . .
Don't you want me baby?
Don't you want me - oh?. . .
