Giving You the Benefit Lyrics

by Pebbles

Lately, I've been trying to figure out your mind
And why you keep dissin' me
Poor little me
And why you have a change of heart and turn it all around
And then try to put it on me
Poor little me

But don't you know
I could be a trip, I could make things hard
But baby, I believe that you still got a heart
That's why I
Try to stop myself before I start
'Cause I could make it tough
I could make it rough
But I won't

Well, I'll be givin' you the benefit
Of the doubt
Givin' you a minute to
Try to work it on out
I'll be givin' you the benefit
Of the doubt
And I'm givin' you a minute to
Try to work it on out
Baby, work it on, work it on out
(Work, work, work)
Baby, work it on, work it on out
(Work, work, work)

Baby, how could you be hangin' out on the town
And claim that you missin' me
Poor little me
When you knew all the time that you could've been with your home girl
Lovin' and a kissin' on me
Sweet little me

But don't you know
If you wanna be a man
You gotta work real hard
If you wanna make me feel I'm like your number one and
Nothin' in the world should make us part
'Cause we can make it work
If you take away the hurt
From the heart

Well, I'll be givin' you the benefit
Of the doubt
Givin' you a minute to
Try to work it on out
I'll be givin' you the benefit
Of the doubt
And I'm givin' you a minute to
Try to work it on out
Baby, work it on, work it on out
(Work, work, work)
Work it baby
(Work, work, work)
Try to work it on, work it on, work it on, work it on out
(Work, work, work)
Work it baby
(Work, work, work)
Keep tryin' to work it on out

I could be a trip
But I choose not to
Deep inside of you
I think there's still good in you, boy
Don't give me no reason not to trust you
Just take the benefit
Don't give me no lip
And I'll be sweet to you

Well, I'll be givin' you the benefit
Of the doubt
Givin' you a minute to
Try to work it on out
I'll be givin' you the benefit
Of the doubt
And I'm givin' you a minute to
Try to work it on out

I'll be givin' you the benefit
(I'll be givin' it to you)
Of the doubt
Givin' you a minute to
(Givin' it to you)
Try to work it on out
I'll be givin' you the benefit
(I'll be givin' it to you)
Of the doubt
Givin' you a minute to
(Givin' it to you)
Try to work it on out

(I'll be givin' it to you)
Boy, I want to give it
Givin' you the benefit
(Givin' it to you)
Ooh, I want to give it
Givin' you the benefit
(I'll be givin' it to you)
Boy, I want to give it
Givin' you the benefit
(Givin' it to you)
Ooh, I want to give it
Givin' you the benefit

I'll be givin' you a minute or two
To try and work it out
I wanna work it baby
I'll be givin' you a minute or two
To try and work it out
But don't you take too long baby

Well, I'll be givin' you the benefit
Of the doubt
Givin' you a minute to
Try to work it on out
I'll be givin' you the benefit
Of the doubt
And I'm givin' you a minute to
Try to work it on out

I'll be givin' you the benefit
(I'll be givin' it to you)
Of the doubt
Givin' you a minute to
(Givin' it to you)
Try to work it on out
I'll be givin' you the benefit
(I'll be givin' it to you)
Of the doubt
Givin' you a minute to
(Givin' it to you)
Try to work it on out

(I'll be givin it to you)
Boy, I want to give it
Givin' you the benefit
(Givin it to you)
Ooh, I want to give it
Givin' you the benefit
(I'll be givin' it to you)
Boy, I want to give it
Givin' you the benefit
(Givin' it to you)
Ooh, I want to give it
Givin' you the benefit
