Tell me whats wrong with you now
Tell me why I
Never seem to make ya happy
Though heaven knows I've tried
What does it take to please you
Tell me just how
I can satisfy ya woman your drivin me wild

Chorus
Break up to make up that's all we do
First you love me, then you hate me
That's a game for fools
Break up to make up that's all we do
First you love me, then you hate me
That's a game for fools

When I come home for working
Your on the phone
Talkin' bout how bad I treat ya
Now tell me I'm wrong
You say it's me and always
I say its you
We have got to get together or baby we're through

Chorus x 2
