(verse1)girl, the only thing that matters in my lifeIs that I'm there for you and treat you rightYOu got no right to treat me cold as ice(bridge)Oh, Oh, Oh, girlAs long as I been givin' my love to youYou should be givin' me your love too, OhBut you just keep on acting just like a foolYou know it ain't cool(chorus)Don't be cruelCause I would never be that cruel to you. Ah no, oh, oh-ohAh don't be cruelCause girl you need to change your attitudeAh, no, oh, oh-ohDon't be cruel.Man we used to hang out toughJust hanging aroundJust a true love affair that could never be foundI gave you my heart and I gave you my mindBut a true love affair we could never findI tell all the time that I want you JackieI want you more than human eyes could seeNow you know my nameNow you know the gameYou wanna be with me you gotta be the same way that another girl would beand if you wanna be with me.Girl I work so hard for you from nine to fiveSo that can buy you all the finer things in lifeYOu got no right to treat me cold as ice.
