Doin' It For You

Male Chauvinism

DOIN’ IT FOR YOU

I treat you politely Baby,

And so you can’t complain

I hold the door when you go out

An’ when you go in again                             

The only time I interrupt

Is when you talk too slow

An’ I been teachin’ you the questions

To the answers that I know                         

 

Cho:  So why, why, why,

You tryin’ t’rearrange me?

Why, why, why,

You're always tryin’ t’change me?

Why, why, why,

Should you want somethin’ new,

When I’m only doin’ it for you!

 

I let you make my breakfast, tho’

You always burn my eggs

I take you into public places

With that hair upon your legs

An’ when my friends come over

I never make you leave

An’ I helped you with them dishes

For that dinner Christmas eve!

Chorus

 

I only come to bed at night

To satisfy your need

I’m good an’ fast, I know you like

To stay awake and read

You say I ain’t kind t’you

But when we went to lunch

You spilled your soup all over me

An’ I only hit you once!

Chorus

 

I’m only doin’ it to you!
