What Did I Do

Baby baby, what did I do to make you treat me this way ?

The day you found me, baby I found you.
It was love at first sight, a dream came true.
You were the woman I searched all my life,
a friend and a lover, you are my wife.
Those days were happy, sunshine and love.
We danced through the night, under the stars above.
I done everything to keep you around,
I even stopped drinking and fooling ‚round town.
I want you to know I’m on my hands and my knees,
so tell me pretty baby how you want me to be!

Baby baby, what did I do to make you treat me this way ?

I was 6 foot ten and a violent man.
I was strong like a bear with an iron hand.
I was a smart-ass and sharp, I was mean and strong.
Couldn’t be beat, ‚til you came along.
The power I had no living man could withstand,
now I’m melting like wax in the palm of your hand.
I was your hero, you were my little girl.
Times have changed, now you’re rulin‘ my world.
I want you to know I’m on my hands and my knees,
so tell me pretty baby how you want me to be!

Baby baby, what did I do to make you treat me this way ?

Sometimes I wonder who I am.
A spineless amoebae or am I still a man?
I can’t eat and I can’t sleep at night.
I’m shackled and chained in a state of fright.
My knees are weak I can’t feel the ground.
I’m a lost little puppy when you ain’t around.
I can’t believe this has happened to me,
where’s that man that I used to be?
I want you to know I’m on my hands and my knees,
so tell me pretty baby how you want me to be!

Baby baby, what did I do to make you treat me this way?
