Dusty Springfield - Crumbs Off The Table Lyrics




Ooh, hoo
Get up in the morning
'Bout a quarter to nine
Get home in the evenin'
Too tired to make time
Give me the lovin'
I've been waiting for all day
You're always a little too tired
To ever look my way

You got me hungry for your love
But you, you ain't able
All you want to give me
Is the crumbs off the table
What you been doin'?
Who you been wooin'?
Tell me, tell me who you been doin'?

I ache inside
With a lovin' desire
But you're too tired, baby
To light my fire
I work in this house all day
And I get tired too
There ain't a day goes by
I ain't willing to make love to you

I'm hungry for your love
But you, you ain't able
All you want to give me
Is the crumbs off the table, ah
What you been doin'?
Who you been wooin'?
Tell me, tell me, tell me who you been doin'?

Hey, sometimes in the middle of the day
I get lovin' you on my mind
But as soon as you get home
You read the paper
Ain't got the time

What you been doin'?
Who you been wooin'?
Tell me, tell me, who you been doin'?
What you been doin'?
Who you been wooin'?
Tell me, tell me, tell me who you been doin'?

I said I'm hungry for your lovin'
But you, you ain't able
All you want to give me is the crumbs off the table
Hungry for your love
But you

Dusty Springfield Crumbs Off The Table Comments
  1. Dennis Lee Cleven

    I first heard this many years ago and I have not heard any other version. Dusty rocks with the best of them. This is Excellent.

  2. Marie turner

    This my fav version of this song x x fabulous many thanks xx

  3. RUDYNATACHA

    I like this. It's pretty true to the original, and she seems to be channeling Scherrie, but Scherrie is the best of the best.

  4. j alvarez

    all versions are very good but the best is from a garage band from Miami The Antiques

  5. Karen Wells

    This is ok, but Laura Lee's version wrecked it!!!!

  6. weirdalfan1980

    I heard Laura, even though she made it good, but Dusty's Version really rocks!

  7. Suhayl Saadi

    Yeah, this is a really powerful song. Laura Lee's version is from the early 1970s, and so has a different style and ambience. Personally, I prefer the psychedelic funk of the Dusty Springfield version. Brilliant.

  8. Lilo Galente

    This band doesn't really swing but I like her voice.

  9. SouLoveReal

    I like the Laura Lee version better... Much funkier and soulful. This one is not bad... Not one of Dusty's better ones.
