  • What the hell is wrong with you tonight?
    I can't seem to say or do the right thing
    Wanted to be sure you're feeling right
    Wanted to be sure we want the same thing

    She said, I can't believe it
    You can't, possibly mean it
    Don't we, all want the same thing
    Don't we
    Well, who said anything about love?

    No, not love she said
    Don't you know that it's different for girls?
    (Don't give me love)
    No, not love she said
    Don't you know that it's different for girls?
    You're all the same

    Mama always told me save yourself
    Take a little time and find the right girl
    Then again don't end up on the shelf
    Logical advice gets you in a whirl

    I know, a lot of things that you don't
    You want to hear some?
    She said, just give me something
    Anything
    Well give me all you got but not love

    No, not love she said
    Don't you know that it's different for girls?
    (Don't give me love)
    No, not love she said
    Don't you know that it's different for girls?
    You're all the same
    You're all the same
    You're all the same
    You're all the same
    You're all the same
    You're all the same
    You're all the same
    You're all the same

    Who said anything about love?

    No, not love she said
    Don't you know that it's different for girls?
    (Don't give me love)
    No, not love she said
    Don't you know that it's different for girls?
    (Don't give me love)
    No, no, no, no, not love she said
    Don't you know that it's different for girls?
    (Don't give me love)
    No, no, no, no, no, not love she said
    Don't you know that it's different for girls?
    You're all the same
    You're all the same
    You're all the same
    You're all the same Writer/s: Joe Jackson
