Janet Jackson – What Have You Done For Me Lately lyrics

What's up girl?

He stood me up again.


Um hmmm.

Well what's up with this guy? Do you really like him that much?

Yes, honey, I love him. He is fine, he does a lot of nice things for me.

I know he used to do nice stuff for you, but what has he done for you lately?

Used to be a time when you would pamper me

Used to brag about it all the time

Your friends seem to think that you're so peachy keen

But my friends say neglect is on your mind...

Whos right?


What have you done for me lately

Ooh ooh ooh yeah

What have you done for me lately

Ooh ooh ooh yeah

Used to go to dinner almost every night

Danced until I thought I'd lose my breath

Now it seems your dancin feet are always on my couch

Good thing I cook or else wed starve to death...

Aint that a shame?

I never ask for more than I deserve

You know it's the truth

You seem to think you're gods gift to this earth

I'm tellin you... No way.

You ought to be thankful for the little things

But little things are all you seem to give

Youre always puttin off what we could do today

Soap opera says youve got one life to live

Whos right whos wrong?

Repeat chorus

This is wild... I swear.
