Well you followed me all around New York City
Tryin' to make people think I wanted you with me
I can only hope that they didn't believe you
I can' t figure out why I got to deal with you

What are you doin' in my life?
What are you doin' in my life?
What are you doin' in my life?
I didn't ask for you

I don't know how you got my telephone number
Probably some jerk try in' to put me under
Some friend of a friend of a friend of mine
Baby who you tryin' to fool when you tell those lies?What are you doin' in my life?
What are you doin' in my life?
What are you doin' in my life?
I didn't ask fo r you

Well this is all a little too much to believe
You're puttin' my name all around in the street
Honey where did you think this was gonna lead?
Baby will you tell me what you want from me?

Well you're the last woman in the world that thrills me
Now you got my girlfriend tryin' to kill me
Honey my friends think that I've gone crazy
Can't you figure out that you ain't my baby

What are you doin' in my life?
What are you doin' in my life?
What are you doin' in my life?
I didn't ask for you
