Jermaine Jackson - Do What You Do Lyrics

I don't mind

Why don't you do what you do
When you did what you did to me?
Love was so good that it filled up all my needs

I was crazy for you
You were crazy for me
How could something so right go so wrong
My love, sweet love

Why don't you say what you say
When you say what you said anymore?
Your eyes couldn't lie
So long goodbye, close the door

I was crazy for you
You were crazy for me
How could something so right go so wrong
My love, sweet love

Tell me something I didn't do
Why did someone else have to pull you through?
Did they steal you away like a thief in the night?
Love like this must take flight

Why don't they play what they played
On the nights you danced with me?
Remember the one we made love to endlessly

I was crazy for you
You were crazy for me
And how could something so right go so wrong
My love, sweet love

Why don't you do what you do
When you did what you did to me?
Do what you do when you did what you did to me
Do what you do when you did what you did to me
Do what you do when you did what you did to me

Jermaine Jackson Do What You Do Comments
  1. Leidenschart Passion

    Could anyone refer to me the version that has the Asian string or something like that?

  2. Sapphirejewals

    What a Clapback!

  3. 657BIueArmy

    So are we meant to think Jackson is the gangster boss, or is it the short bloke who has a great gangster boss look about him? I can't work out the hierarchy here.

  4. 657BIueArmy

    What is it about birds from that part of the world, having such bulbous foreheads as 1man or whatever she's called? I swear I can spot a Somalian from 100 paces just because they remind me of a long stick with a 150 watt light bulb on top. No offense.

  5. hello kitty

    Jermaine was too much in these lovesong like things...
    ... he should have taken more inspiration from his brother, focussing on more up pace music and streetdancing
