Jazmine Sullivan – Stanley lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm in the kitchen making the dinner that I know you like
And I've been cleaning this damn house all day and all night
But you don't pay me no attention Stanley
I'm needing your attention baby
Just show me some appreciation
Or maybe take a bitch to dinner

[Chorus]
Sometimes you make me feel special, Stanley
I really shouldn't have to tell you baby
This isn't how you treat a lady
Don't you know you got a winner?
I don't know why I waste my time
When you don't care how hard I try to make you smile
(If you ain't careful) You gone lose a good thing
You gone lose a thing

[Verse 2]
I try to dress up and look like something just to turn you on
I'm spending money I don't got because you used to like my hair red my nails done
But you don't pay me no attention Stanley
I'm needing your attention baby
Just show me some appreciation
Or maybe take a bitch to dinner

[Chorus]
Sometimes you make me feel special, Stanley
I really shouldn't have to tell you baby
This isn't how you treat a lady
Don't you know you got a winner?
I don't know why I waste my time
When you don't care how hard I try to make you smile
(If you ain't careful) You gone lose a good thing
You gone lose a thing

I try so hard to be good to you, Stanley
But why don't you care and you take me for granted?
You know I love you but I'm getting tired
You might get burned cause you're playing with fire (Fire)
All you do is go to the bar
Worrying 'bout that rusty car
Mess around you're gonna lose my heart
And another man is gonna do your part
