Didn't I treat you right, now
Didn't I
Didn't I do the best I could
Didn't I
Didn't I give ya everything
Didn't I

Didn't I

Didn't I do it baby

Why you wanna leave me baby
Didn't I treat you right

I bought you diamond rings
Everything, that a woman could need
I bought you cars, clothes, a home
When things were rough for me I kept on
And I am back again

Didn't I

There's something wrong with you
Tell me
Bring me all your troubles dear
You look bad, you should be glad
Your leading man, always be glad, sit by home
And let me kiss your lovely lips

Didn't I do it baby
Didn't I do right
Why you wanna leave me baby
I said didn't I treat you right

It's a mystery to me
That you won't
Talk to me
What it is
That I've done
To make me
