Gerry Rafferty – The Way That You Do It lyrics
You got a way of telling me I'm wrong
You got a way of coming on so strong
I can take it from you, yeah you know I always do
Cause you got a way that you do it
It's the way that you do it
The way that you do it just got to be right.

You got a way of leaving me no doubt
You got a way of telling me what I'm about
I couldn't take it from anyone else, yeah I really surprised myself
Cause you got a way that you do it
It's the way that you do it
The way that you do it just got to be right.

You help me (you help me when I feel alone)
You help me (you help me when I'm down and I'm stuck on my own)
You wake me up to all the little things that I don't see.

You help me (you help me, help me, help me out)
You help me (you help me see myself and what I'm all about)
You give me reason to believe that everything that can be.

You got a way of knowing just how I feel
You got a way of letting me know what's real
I don't get it from anyone else, though I try to fool myself
Cause you got a way that you do it
It's the way that you do it
The way that you do it just got to be right.

You help me (you help me when I feel alone)
You help me (you help me when I'm down and I'm stuck on my own)
You wake me up to all the little things that I don't see.

You help me (you help me, help me, help me out)
You help me (you help me see myself and what I'm all about)
You give me reason to believe that everything that can be.

You got a way of telling me I'm wrong
You got a way of coming on so strong
I can take it from you, yeah you know I always do
Cause you got a way that you do it
It's the way that you do it
The way that you do it just got to be right.

The way that you do it just got to be right.
The way that you do it just got to be right.
