things ain’t like they used to be lyrics – the black keys

i went around the way for you
did all those things you asked me to
i thought it was the perfect day
till she just opened up to say

it doesn’t mean a thing to me
it doesn’t mean a thing to me
and it’s about time you see
things ain’t like they used to be

i headed out to lester hill
but that just made me weaker still
she’s got the kind of love i need
the kind that’s never good on me

it doesn’t mean a thing to me
it doesn’t mean a thing to me
and it’s about time you see
things ain’t like they used to be

i walked into the battle blind
it happens almost all the time
the yard is kind of overgrown
and all those happy times are gone

it doesn’t mean a thing to me
it doesn’t mean a thing to me
and it’s about time you see
that things ain’t like they used to be

it doesn’t mean a thing to me, oh
it doesn’t mean a thing to me
and it’s about time you see
things ain’t like they used to be
