You can please me
You can sweet talk and lead me on
But believe me
Won't be long till I'm catching on

That ain't no way to treat a lady
I could of sworn that you'd had enough

So you leave me
Well I'm lonely and in despair

Well I ain't here for nothing
And my love doesn't come that cheap
I will hold you to all your promises
If I could find one you meant to keep

That ain't ain't no way to treat a lady
That ain't no way to treat a woman in love
That ain't ain't no way to treat a lady
That ain't no way, no way to treat a woman in love

You can tease me
You can sweet talk and lead me on
But believe me
Won't be long till I'm catching on
For I ain't here for nothing
And my love doesn't come that cheap
And I will hold you to all your promises
If I could find one you meant to keep
