If you had a dollar, and I had a dime
I wonder, could I borrow yours as easy as you could mine?
Because when you need my love, and I give time after time
And turn around to find me no returns
Then, my friend, you've used my dimes!
If there's water in the pitcher, and we both need a drink
To stay alive, my darlin', I'd need less water than you think
My love, my love, these things, I swear, I say are true
And all I'm really saying is be as good to me as I am to you
Listen to this!
Some people want, but they don't wanna give
They can do all of the wrong in the world
And got the nerve to not understand the meaning of let live!
Starting today, tomorrow, and forevermore
If you can't find it in your heart to do for me
Then, baby, just don't darken my front door!
Baby, I want you to be as good to me as I am to you
Whoo, baby! I don't think that's asking you too much to do
Listen! don't you walk around here
Feeling like you can treat me any ole way
Using my love, my time, my heart, day, day after day
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, baby, baby
Be as good to me as I am to you
