    Well, I don't like
    Living under your spotlight
    Just because you think
    I might find somebody worthy
    Oh, I don't like
    Living under your spotlight
    Baby, if you treat me right
    You won't have to worry

    Fulfilling your needs

    Baby, if you treat me right
    You won't have to worry

    Oh, you ought to be
    Ashamed of yourself
    What the hell
    Do you think you're doing?
    Loving me, loving me
    So wrong
    Baby, all I do is try
    To show you

    No matter

    Open your eyes
    Cause baby, I don't lie

    Living under your spotlight
    Just because you think
    I might find somebody worthy
    Oh, I don't like
