You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar 
When I met you 
I picked you out, I shook you up, and turned you around 
Turned you into someone new 
Now five years later on youve got the world at your feet 
Success has been so easy for you 
But dont forget its me who put you where you are now 
And I can put you back down too 
 
Dont, dont you want me?  
You know I cant believe it when I hear that you wont see me 
Dont, dont you want me?  
You know I dont believe you when you say that you dont need me 
Its much too late to find 
You think youve changed your mind 
Youd better change it back or we will both be sorry 
 
Dont you want me baby? dont you want me - oh 
Dont you want me baby? dont you want me - oh 
 
I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar 
That much is true 
But even then I knew Id find a much better place 
Either with or without you 
The five years we have had have been such good times 
I still love you 
But now I think its time I lived my life on my own 
I guess its just what I must do 
 
Dont you want me baby? dont you want me - oh 
Dont you want me baby? dont you want me - oh
