lyrics

LYRICS:

I work all day to buy you things

Just to please you I’d do anything

Whatever you want you know I'll buy

But you're never happy or satisfied

If I buy you a diamond ring

You want a necklace or some other thing

Nothing I can do is ever good enough for you

Nothing I can buy will ever keep you satisfied

Nothing I can do yeah, is ever good enough for you

Now you tell me when we're in bed

You'd rather have another man instead

Something about me it just ain't right

You say I bore you every single night

Nothing I can do is ever good enough for you

Nothing I can buy will ever keep you satisfied

Nothing I can do, I can do

Nothing I can do is ever good enough for you

Now I’m finally starting to see

You got this power you hold over me

But you're not special or one of a kind

Someone like you is so easy to find

Greedy and vicious your average bitch

With a heart like a wicked witch

If I dump you I might not cry

‘Cause I'll never please you till the day I die

Nothing I can do is ever good enough for you

Nothing I can buy will ever keep you satisfied

Nothing I can do is ever good enough for you

Nothing I can say could make a difference anyway

Nothing yeah yeah I can do

Nothing yeah I can do

Nothing I can do yeah, is ever good enough for you
