  • Well I built my life around you, did what I thought was right
    But you never cared about me, now I've seen the light
    Oh darling, there ain't no pleasin' you

    You seemed to think that everything I ever did was wrong
    I should have known it, all along
    Oh darlin', there ain't no pleasin' you

    You only 'ad to say the word
    And you knew I'd do it
    You 'ad me where you wanted me
    But you went and blew it

    Now everything I ever done, was only done for you
    But now you can go and do, just what you wanna do
    I'm tellin' you

    'Coz I ain't gonna be made to look a fool no more
    You done it once too often, what do ya take me for?
    Oh darlin', there ain't no pleasin' you

    And you seemed to think that everything I ever did was wrong
    I should 'ave known it all along
    That darlin', there ain't no pleasin' you

    You only 'ad to say the word
    And you knew I'd do it
    You 'ad me where you wanted me
    But you went and blew it

    Now everything I ever done, was only done for you
    But now you can go and do, just what you wanna do
    I'm tellin' you

    'Coz I ain't gonna be made to look a fool no more
    You done it once too often, what do ya take me for?
    Oh darlin', there ain't no pleasin' you

    Now if you think I don't mean what I say, and I'm only bluffin?
    You got another thing comin', I'm tellin' you that for nothin?
    'Coz darlin' I'm leavin'
    That's what I'm gonna...do-oo-oo Writer/s: CHAS HODGES, DAVE PEACOCK
