I pick you up with flowers when you get off from work
It's like you don't even care it's like I'm some kind of jerk
I take you out on a date and then you won't even kiss me
Boy when I ain't around I'll bet you don't even miss me

I don't know why I love you like I do
I try and try, you treat me like a fool
It makes me want to cry, it makes me feel so rude
But I just do, baby I just do

I call you up just to pass the time
Soon as you hear my voice you disconnect the line
And when I call you back your mother says you ain't home
Cindy I know that you're on the other end of this phone

Oh in this world there ain't another like you
My little candy girl, so hard-hearted and cruel
I think that's what keeps me coming back
I'm a fool for you Cindy and I like it like that

I came to get you last night, Cindy at quarter to six
Your Daddy came to the door, he said Cindy got sick
She got sent home from work with a note from the nurse
And I worry your presence would make her condition worse
But it ain't your health, 'cuz you sure look so fine
Little girl it's something else that's on my mind
Whatever you got, well you can give it me
'Cuz if it's good enough for you it's good enough for me

I don't know why I love you like I do
You make me cry and feel like a fool
I guess I like it when you hurt me this way
You dish it out and I just put it away


A fun little song that was recorded and considered for The River in 1979.
