If you think you're doin' right
When I work all day, and you stay out all night,
You ain't got nothin' there,
In fact, you ain't nowhere.

If you think I'm gonna cry
When I know you're high and so am I,
You ain't got nothin' there,
In fact, you ain't nowhere.

Oh, it makes no difference what you do,
When we're far apart,
But when we're together,
You gotta look out for my heart.

Oh, if you think that I'm a fool
And I didn't learn nothin' when I was in school,
You ain't got nothin' there,
In fact, you ain't nowhere.

Oh, it makes no difference what you do,
When we're far apart,
But when we're together,
You gotta look out for my heart.

If you think that I'm a fool
And I didn't learn nothin' when I was in school,
Hm! You ain't got nothin' there,
In fact, you ain't nowhere.
