  • Now, now, now, honey
    You better sit down and look around
    'Cause you must've bumped yo' head
    And I love you enough to talk some sense back into you, baby
    I'd hate to see you come home--me, the kids, and the dog is gone
    Check my credentials
    I give you everything you want, everything you need
    Even your friends say I'm a good woman
    All I need to know is why

    Why don't you love me?
    Tell me, baby, why don't you love me
    When I make me so damn easy to love?
    And why don't you need me?
    Tell me, baby, why don't you need me
    When I make me so damn easy to need?

    I got beauty, I got class
    I got style and I got ass
    And you don't even care to care

    I even put money in the bank account
    Don't have to ask no one to help me out
    You don't even notice that

    Why don't you love me?
    Tell me, baby, why don't you love me
    When I make me so damn easy to love?
    And why don't you need me?
    Tell me, baby, why don't you need me
    When I make me so damn easy to need?

    I got beauty, I got heart
    Keep my head in them books, I'm sharp
    But you don't care to know I'm smart

    I got moves in your bedroom
    Keep you happy with the nasty things I do
    But you don't seem to be in tune

    Why don't you love me?
    Tell me, baby, why don't you love me
    When I make me so damn easy to love?
    And why don't you need me?
    Tell me, baby, why don't you need me
    When I make me so damn easy to need?

    There's nothing not to love about me
    No, no, there's nothing not to love about me
    No, no, there's nothing not to love about me
    There's nothing not to need about me
    I'm lovely
    There's nothing not to need about me (nothing not to need about me)
    No, no, there's nothing not to love about me
    Baby you're just not the one
    Maybe you're just plain
