He Don’t Love Me Right

He’s too into the keyhole

steada a door I want his hands to find so slow:

slivers in his fingers

his body break it down….

He fevers over women

now it’s righteousness keeps him mine, y’know:

but his eyes will glitter for ’em

like snow do in the light…oh—

 

Refrain:

He overstates my qualities

til I don’t trust his compliments

but need em all the same

He don’t love me right,

no he don’t love me right

he makes me crazy,

crazy for a fight.

 

He’s got this angry passion

when he’s gotta be right, he bellow

loud as a man can be

he shakes the whole damn room.

Yeah, I wanna blanket the kitchen

where he stands, so the dishes don’t fall down, oh

he talks too long

yeah he talks too long, right?….oh—

 

Refrain:

He overstates my qualities

til I don’t trust his compliments

but need em all the same

He don’t love me right,

no he don’t love me right

he makes me crazy,

crazy for a fight.

 

And he won’t fight me

when it a fight I really need, because I’m low

If I contradict too many

of his statements

oh, baby he cheats and walks away

talkin’ bout silent treatment or else he just says “no,

honey, you don’t hear me,

you never hear me,”

when I heard ever’ other word…oh—

 

Refrain:

He overstates my qualities

til I don’t trust his compliments

but need em all the same

He don’t love me right,

no he don’t love me right

he makes me crazy,

crazy for a fight.
