Jerry Butler – What's The Use Of Breaking Up lyrics

What's the use in breaking up
When you just turn around
And make up

Oh, you say you're tired
And you're uninspired
And you wanna leave me, oh, baby
The last time you felt that way
Girl, you left me for a whole day

Now then you call
Me on the telephone
In your sweet and
Your softest tone

You ask me what should we do
When you know all the time
That I'm crazy about you

What's the use in breaking up
When you just turn around
And make up, baby
What's the use in breaking up
When you just turn around
And make up

Listen, we had
The same conversation
Well, it couldn't have been
More than a week ago

I said, darling
You're breakin my heart
And I don't see how
I can take much more

I got up and
Walked out of the door
Walked on down to
The corner store

And by the time that
What I said sunk in
I turned right around
And came back again


Girl, I guess we do it
Cause it's such a groove
To find something that
You nearly do

Oh, baby
I love you, I swear
And ain't neither one
Of us going nowhere


You know that you
And I both started
And if we break up
We will be broken-hearted

And that I have always loved you
And I think the whole world of you
And every time, every time...
