VP_000049 Verse 1Listen to me honey dear, Something's wrong with you I fear It's getting harder to please you, Harder and harder each year. I don't want to make you blue, But you need a talking to. Like a lot of people I know, Here's what's wrong with you. Chorus 1After you get what you want you don't want it, If I gave you the moon, You'd grow tired of it soon. You're like a baby You want what you want when you want it, But after you are presented with what you want you're discontented. You're always wishing and wanting for something, When you get what you want, You don't want what you get. And tho' you sit upon my knee, You'll grow tired of me, 'Cause, After you get what you want you don't want what you wanted at all. Verse 2Don't you say that I'm unkind Think it over and you'll find You've got a changeable nature You're always changing your mind There's a longing in your eye That is hard to satisfy You're unhappy most of the time Here's the reason why.
