When you complain and criticize
I feel like nothing in your eyes
It makes me feel like givin' up
Because my best just ain't good enough
Girl I want to provide for you
And do the things you want me to

But oh, oh no
Don't bring me down
Said darlin', darlin', darlin', darlin'
Oh, oh, no
Don't bring me down

The sacrifices I will make
I'm ready to give as well as take
Something I need is your respect
Something I can't take is your neglect
And more than anything I need your love
Until it's easy to rise above

And oh, oh, no
Don't bring me down
Said darlin', darlin', darlin', don't hurt me
Oh, oh, no
Don't bring me down

When you complain and criticize
I feel like nothing in your eyes
It makes me feel like givin' up
Because my best just ain't good enough
Girl I want to provide for you
Do the things that you want me to

But oh, oh, no
Don't bring me down
Said darlin', darlin', darlin', I'm beggin' you
Oh, oh, no
Don't bring me down
Said darlin', darlin', darlin', darlin'
Oh, please, oh, no
Don't bring me down
Darlin', darlin', stop it, darlin'
Oh, oh, no
