Now I don't want to be your slave
You're trying to drive me to an early grave
All I ever hear, is that you live an' breathe for me
But all you ever do, babe, is shake my tree

'Cos you keep on pushing, baby
Like you never, ever been in love before

I told you once an' I told you twice
I ain't no schoolboy you can sacrifice
You want my love an' you want it now
You try to love me, baby, but you don't know how

So you keep on pushing, baby
Like you never, ever been in love before

I need love an' I need time
An' a little bit of both, if you wanna be a friend of mine
I don't want no woman, drive me outta my head
An' you're the kind of girl, guaranteed to wreck my bed

Love is what you need
But you cut down to the bone an' make me bleed
I give you everything an' still you cry
Oh mama, the price of loving you is way too high

But you keep on talking, baby, I've heard it all before
Now I don't want you hanging around or kicking at my door

But you keep on pushing, mama
Like you never ever been in love before

I know love an' I know shame
An' I ain't gonna get caught up in your game
It took a little time to make me see
I ain't lookin' for a woman like you to shake my tree

So keep on talking, baby, keep on hangin' around
Everything you do to me is sure to drag me down

An' you keep on pushing, mama
Like you never, ever been in love before

Shake my tree

I don't want to be your slave
You're trying to drive me to an early grave
You keep on talking, no matter what you say
I've had enough of your kind of love, to last me all my days

So keep on pushing baby, I've heard it all before
I don't want you hanging around, or kicking at my door

Now I don't want your loving, baby, I can't take it anymore
I don't want you hanging around, kicking at my door
If I see your face again, I'll give you what's in store
But, you'll keep on pushing, baby
'Cos you've never, ever been in love before
