Rod Stewart – Is That The Thanks I Get lyrics

(rod stewart / jim cregan)

Did you think I'd take it sitting down
And let you walk all over me
Thought you knew me much better than that
I keep much better company

With your lawyers and your two timing friends
I guess you know who I mean
Your detectives and your private eyes
Could never win me back again

Just where did it get ya
What satisfaction was had
You kicked the shit right in my face
Is that all the thanks I get

You said we made such a pretty pair
Living in harmony
I'm sorry honey but I disagree
It seemed more like a comedy

Just look how you lied girl
That judas right by your side
He hung you up so you cut me right down
Is that all the thanks I get

Guess I'll find me a brand new girl
That wont take too very long
There's so many floatin round this town
Waitin by the telephone
And if you want me I'll be in the bar
Back into my usual ways
Or on the corner with the rest of the boys
You and I were just a breath away
It was great while it lasted
But oh lord it turned nasty
You didn't give me one chance to explain
Well is that all the thanks I get

Is that the thanks I get
Is that the thanks I get
Is that the thanks I get for loving you
Is that the thanks I get
Is that the thanks I get
Is that the thanks I get for loving you
