things i do for you lyrics – jackson 5

people all over the world are the same everywhere i go
i give in to this, i give in to that
every day it bothers me so

am i in a bad situation
people taking me to the exteme
am i being used
i just need a clue
i don’t know which way to go

so i took my problems to a doctor
so he could check it out, he don’t know
took it to a palm reader so she could
read my hand, she don’t know
five minutes later i started to understand
i started screaming, shouting, acting mad
no one could help me but myself
but i gave everything i had

chorus:
it’s things i do for you
in return do the same for me
it’s things i do for you
in return do the same for me

always wanting something for nothing
especially what they don’t deserve

reaching in my pocket
i just got to stop it
even though they got a lot of nerve

am i in a bad situation
people taking me to the extreme
they don’t use rejection
so i need protection
to keep my equity

so i took my problems to a doctor
so he could check it out, he don’t know
took it to a palm reader so she could
read my hand, she don’t know
five minutes later i started to understand
i started screaming, shouting, acting mad
no one could help me but myself
but i gave everything i had

chorus:
it’s things i do for you
in return do the same for me
it’s things i do for you
in return do the same for me
