The Human League - Don’t you want me
Tekst en muziek: Phil Oakey, Jo Callis en Philip Adrian Wright
(1981)






You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
When I met you
I picked you out, I shook you up and turned you around
Turned you into someone new
Now five years later on you’ve got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you
But don’t forget, it’s me who put you where you are now
And I can put you back down too



Don’t, don’t you want me
You know, I can’t believe it when I hear that you won’t see me
Don’t, don’t you want me
You know, I don’t believe you when you say that you don’t need me
It’s much too late to find
You think you’ve changed your mind
You’d better change it back or we will both be sorry



Don’t you want me, baby
Don’t you want me, ooh ohohoh
Don’t you want me, baby
Don’t you want me, ooh ohohoh



I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
That much is true
But even then I knew I’d find a much better place
Either with or without you
The five years we have had, have been such good times
I still love you
But now I think it’s time, I live my life on my own
I guess, it’s just what I must do



Don’t, don’t you want me
You know, I can’t believe it when I hear that you won’t see me
Don’t, don’t you want me
You know, I don’t believe you when you say that you don’t need me
It’s much too late to find
You think you’ve changed your mind
You’d better change it back or we will both be sorry



Don’t you want me, baby
Don’t you want me, ooh ohohoh
Don’t you want me, baby
Don’t you want me, ooh ohohoh



Don’t you want me, baby
Don’t you want me, ooh ohohoh
Don’t you want me, baby
Don’t you want me, ooh ohohoh



Don’t you want me, baby
Don’t you want me, ooh ohohoh
Don’t you want me, baby
Don’t you want me, ooh ohohoh



Don’t you want me, baby
Don’t you want me, ooh ohohoh
Don’t you want me, baby
Don’t you want me, ooh ohohoh



Don’t you want me, baby
