Your body's here with me,
But your mind is on the other side of town.
You're messin' me around.
Girl, your body's here with me, (Hmmm, hmmm, mmmm.)
But your mind is on the other side of town.
You're messin' me around.

I thought you told me you straightened out your life
When we agreed to try it one more time.
It would be my job to work and protect you.
And you would make our whole life sublime.
(Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm.)

But I keep hearin' you cry after midnight
When the whole world is still.  Uh.
And I know the reason you had to come home.
He gives you plenty of thrills,
But I'm the one who pays the bills.

You know your body's here with me,
But your mind is on the other side of town.
You're messin' me around, messin' me around.
Girl, your body's here with me,
(Oooooooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh.)
But your mind is on the other side of town.
(Yeah, uh, uh, uh.)
You're messin' me around, foolin' around.

You never deny me, but it kinda hurts me bad,
'Cause you never ever call my name.
All I tried to do, I just can't break through.
I just can't make it feel the same, no.  (Oh, oh, oh.)

I did all I could do to hold you close.
Did my very best to love you straight up and down.
And girl, it's gettin' plain to see, your best is not for me.
When you get the urge to get down,
You go to the other side of town.

You know your body's here with me,
But your mind (is on the other side of town) is way, way 'cross town.
You're messin' me around, gettin' on down.
Girl, your body's here with me,
Your body's (But your mind is on the other side of town.)
Way, way, way.  (Other side.  The other side.)
(You're messin' me around.) Gettin' on down, gettin' on down.

(Girl, your body's here with me,)
What am I gonna do.  (But your mind is on the other side of town.)
What am I gonna do.
(You're messin' me around.) But it's not my name.
I can't make it feel the same.  Your body.
I'm in love with not only your body, babe,
(But your mind, your mind is slippin' away.) But I need your mind.

(Girl, your body's here with me,) Slippin', baby.
(What am I gonna do.) But your mind is on the other side of town.
I'm the one who pays the bills.
(You're messin' me around.) He's the one who gives you plenty of thrills.
(Girl, your body's here with me,)
(Ahhh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh.) Your body's here with me,
But your mind (is on the other side of town.) is way on the other side of town.
(Other side.) 
(You're messin' me around.) You're foolin' around,
(Other side.) foolin' around.
(Girl, your body) Your body's here with me.
