MOSE ALLISON lyrics - What's With You

MOSE ALLISON
"What's With You"
(Mose Allison)

You told me what I was doing wrong
You told me I wouldn't be here long
You told me all the things that I didn't do
But now won't you tell me baby
What's with you

You told me about the pacesetters
You told me about the go-getters
You told me about the people in the Who's Who
But now won't you tell me baby, what's with you

Don't think I don't appreciate your grave concern
Don't think I haven't noticed that you've got words to burn

You told me I was second rate
You told me that I should abdicate
So just one little thing before you're through
Now won't you tell me baby, what's with you

Don't think I don't appreciate your sage advice
Don't think I haven't noticed how you put me down so nice

You told me I was born to lose
You told me I couldn't sing the blues
So just one little thing before you're through
Now won't you tell me baby, what's with you
