(Verse I) It hurts me when you criticise things I do / Even more when you bring someone else in / Time and time again, I’ve explained to you / That kind of shit is a sin
(Pre-chorus) All I’ve done for you is treat you good / Just the way that any man should / But the favour you seldom returned / You’re another hard lesson learned
(Chorus) I’ve always complimented you / But you’ve done the opposite to me / When I was building you up like the Empire State Building * / All you’ve done is tear me down
(Verse II) I’m tired of your suggestions to try something diff’rent / Only ‘cos it benefits thee / What’s it gonna take for you to understand / That what works for you don’t always work for me?
PRE-CHORUS and CHORUS
(Bridge) I know you’ve learned in life / To do unto others as you’d have done unto you / But now I see no hint of that principle / In the way that I’m treated by you
* — Leaning Tower of Pisa for Chorus II, and R.J. Reynolds Building for Chorus III
