I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me

Album: Rhythm & Romance (1985)
  • It's the right time you know I feel fine tonight (I don't why you don't want me)
    It's the right place I've got my new face tonight (I don't why you don't want me)
    I'm in the right mood I've got my new shoes tonight (I don't why you don't want me)
    I've got a new dress I couldn't care less tonight (I don't why you don't want me)

    [Chorus]
    Somebody told you I was so cold and mean (who was that talking)
    Somebody wants you and don't want me in between (she better start walkin')
    Somebody hurt you but baby she wasn't me

    Let's find a new name for such a old game tonight (I don't why you don't want me)
    I'll show you how long that I can go on tonight (I don't why you don't want me)
    I don't know why you don't want me

    Just when I think that I can make it without you
    You come round and say you want me now
    You tell me don't leave and I want to believe you
    Why can't you see just how much I need you

    [Chorus]

    It's the last chance for a romance tonight (I don't why you don't want me)
    There'll be no next time if you won't be mine tonight (I don't why you don't want me)
    I don't know why you don't want me? Writer/s: RODNEY J. CROWELL, ROSANNE CASH
