AIN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU

Unofficial studio version


...Three, four!

You don't like, don't like the way I walk
You don't like, don't like the way I talk
You don't like the things I do at night
You complain, say that I'm not right

You complain about the way I dress
You complain, say my hair's a mess
Criticize all the things I do
No alibi's satisfy

Whoa whoa whoa whoa (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
What's the matter little darling (what's the matter little darling)
???
Ain't good enough for you

You criticize about the way I drive
Your alibis, baby, they're all jive
I know I'm ??? but I do my best
???

And you scream like the way I ???
??? your ???
???
???

Whoa whoa whoa whoa (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
Hey hey little darling (what's the matter little darling)
???
???
Alright, now!

Whoa whoa whoa whoa (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
Hey hey little darling (hey hey little darling)
???
Ain't good enough for you

You complain about the way I drive
You criticize the way I love you at night
And all you do, doo doo na na
I don't know why, da da da da da da

You don't like, like the way I dress
You don't like the way my hair's a mess
And you don't like da da da da da da
And all I want is ???

Whoa whoa whoa whoa (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
Hey hey little darling (hey hey little darling)
Oh God no matter what I do, no matter what I do
Ain't not good enough for you
Yeah girl no matter what I do, ???
Ain't not good enough for you
Hey hey yeah
No matter what I do it ain't enough for you
Ain't enough for you
Whoa

Da da da da, da da da da da da
Da da da da, da da da da da da
Da da da da, da da da da
Da da da da da da, da da da da da da...
