Never gonna give you up
No matter how you treat me
Never gonna give you up
So don't you think of leavin'
Girl, you treat me bad and I know why
Yeah, I've seen you runnin' around with another guy
And you think if you hurt me that I'll go away 
Made it up in my mind that I'm here to stay 
So tell 'em
Never gonna give you up
Whisper in his ear
No matter how you treat me
Never gonna give you up 
You tell him that Jerry said he'll never let you go
So don't you think of leavin' 
Hey, don't you understand 
What you're doing to the man

Do you see these tears here inn my eyes
Ain't no use in my lyin'
Cause I really cried 
You think you're gonna take me 
And put me on the shelf
Girl, I'd rather die
Than see you with somebody else
So throw it out of your mind
I'll never leave you 
Though you grieve me and deceive me, yeah
Hey, don't you understand 
What you're doing to the man

My friends all say that I'm your fool
And you're using me like a carpenter uses a tool
And I know their intentions have all been good
Some of them would help me if they could
But I'll never give you up 
Never, never, never, never let you go
No matter what you say 
Don't you understand 
That you're killing this man
Never gonna give you up
Never gonna give you up
No matter what you do to me, baby
