Everything She Wants

by WHAM!





You can hear Michael Jackson for 40 years and never know “Billie Jean” was about paternity fraud, and sometimes you never listen to the lyrics at all. WHAM! was a cultural phenomenon in the 80s too – featuring the voice of George Michael. Many #1s from back then had a similar message in the music, and it can take up to 30 years for it to register.

Everything She Wants


Somebody told me,
“Boy, everything she wants is everything she sees…”
I guess I must have loved you.
‘Cause I said you were the perfect girl for me,
Maybe…
But now we’re six months older…
And everything you want and everything you see,
Is out of reach…not good enough…
I don’t know what the hell you want from me but boy…

Uh huh huh…
Oh…oh…
Uh huh huh…
Doo doo doo…
La la la la…

Somebody tell me,
Won’t you tell me…
Why I work so hard for you?
All to give you money
All to give you money…

Some people work for a living,
Some people work for fun,
Girl, I just work for you.
They told me marriage was a give and take,
Well, show me you can take you’ve got some giving to do.
And now you tell me that you’re having my baby,
I’ll tell you that I’m happy if you want me to…
One step further and my back will break,
If my best isn’t good enough
Than how can it be good enough for two?
I can’t work any harder than I do…

Somebody tell me,
Won’t you tell me…
Why I work so hard for you?
All to give you money,
All to give you money…

Oh…
Why do I do the things I do?
I’d tell you if I knew.
My God…
I don’t even think that I love you….
Won’t you tell me…
Tell me…tell me…tell me…

How could you settle for a boy like me,
When all I could see was the end of the week…
All the things we sign,
And the things we buy,
Ain’t gonna keep us together…
It’s just a matter of time.

My situation,
Never changes.
Walking in that manner through that door,
Like a stranger,
But the wages…
I give you all you say you want more…

And all I can see is the end of the week,
All the things we sign,
And the things we buy,
Ain’t gonna keep us together…
Girl, it’s just a matter of time.
