You push me when I'm falling
And then you put me down
I guess I missed my calling
I should have been a clown

How much more?
How much more can I stand?
You're pouring water on a drowning man

You put me on the right track
And then you put me down
You stab me in the back
Every time I turn around

Criticize my lovin'
When I'm doing the very best I can
You're pouring water on a drowning man
You're pouring water on a drowning man

You treat me like the fool that I am
You bet that I like everything you do
Put salt in my wounds, it's sad but it's true

You warm me with your kisses
Then you leave me in the cold
How can I know your wishes
When I've never been told

Won't you please forgive me
Just try and understand
You're pouring water on a drowning man
You're pouring water on a drowning man

You treat me like the fool that I am
You bet that I like everything you do
Put salt in my wounds, it's sad but it's true

You warm me with your kisses
Then you leave me in the cold
How can I know your wishes
When I've never been told

Won't you please forgive me
Just try and understand
You're pouring water on a poor drowning man

I got tears in my eyes
Oh, I'm a drowning man
I got tears in my eyes
You're pouring water on a drowning man
You're pouring water on a poor drowning man
