Reba McEntire - What Am I Gonna Do About You Lyrics

The kid down the street mowes the grass every week
The neighbor next door fixed the roof where it leaked
Job's going fine and the bills are all paid
And everyone thinks that I'm doing OK

There's a guy down at work
He's asked me out once or twice
I haven't said yes
But I'm thinking I might
And on my way home I thought I saw you walk by
If only I could get you out of my mind

What in the world am I gonna do about you
Oh your memory keeps coming back
From out of the blue
Oh well I try
And I try
But I still can't believe that we're through
So tell me what in the world am I gonna do about you
What am I gonna do about you

I went to the store
But it wasn't much fun
It doesn't take long when you're shopping for one
Standing in line I thought I saw you walk in
And that's when it started all over again

What in the world am I gonna do about you
Oh your memory keeps coming back
From out of the blue
Oh well I try
And I try
But I still can't believe that we're through
So tell me what in the world am I gonna do about you
What am I gonna do about you
Darling what am I gonna do about you

Reba McEntire What Am I Gonna Do About You Comments
  1. Oakie

    RIP Eric Hooyschuur 1964-1993

  2. Charleston Berry

    See....this is how YOU TELL A STORY!! These days are long gone! Thank you Reba!! I love u

  3. Jeff Hill

    I’ll tell you what your gonna do. You’re going on to have a very successful career! With heartache.

  4. Paul Hoffmann

    This song was a giant hit in 1986 because it spoke to a lot of people. I know it did me. 1986 was a giant year for C&W. It's the year Reba got big, Dwight Yoakum and Randy Travis came out that year too. Lyle Lovett too. Trio came out that year too. List is long. Whew, lotta sad songs. Early and mid 80s was the golden years for C&W.

  5. Francis Beauregard

    This woman is timeless

  6. Lyndsey Wise

    97.7 Hank fm plays the older country songs and I love it. I wish country music was still like this.

  7. Charles Fish

    I wished I could afford to see you before it's to late

  8. Charles Fish

    I love your music so much I am 55 years old but think your so amazing thank's reba

  9. Bill Levins

    This was the best era in country music in the mid 80's. The sound was perfect and it is hard to put into words what I am trying to say. This song and many others at the time is this really good mellow feel to them and these great songs have aged very well over the years. This video is beautiful and the biggest then was MATURITY. The country songs back in 1986 were about real things like love, heartache and when a artist sang a fun song they did it well and sang about something everyone could enjoy. Nowadays the industry is shot and every artist sings about sex and alcohol and many other silly stuff. This is why the 80's is looked at now with such greatness because back then the singers and record execs knew what they were doing.

  12. Melissa Denton

    Reba hits the heart and soul and of I could just get someone anyone to hear it and take me away from it all and be strong enough to be beside me and help me thru it all. I just need one person to believe in me that I'm not what everyone thinks I am. Which is a broken lost knows nothing and is Alone

    Marty Rezac

    Meet Me.Columbus,OH


    🕉💜i remember these days like they were yesterday. I listened to this whole album once & i knew every song by heart. I was also getting a divorce. I had two sons they were coming with me. I lived my whole life for them & worked three jobs for them. Since their father just couldn't be bothered to help financially. I didnt want them to be alcoholics. It was my dream to be a professional singer since i was a little one. So when the boys got to their senior year i looked for a band to sing with. We toured all around the state. i ended up representing my state in a national singing competition. Toured the whole state of Tennessee & sang for some phenomenal people. Made a demo tape. Faith Hills manager approached me & wanted to represent me. At that point i met the most wonderful supportive man in the world & i decided that life with him would be more fun & it was. A dream come true for me & my sons we loved him so much. He passed away seven years ago this november. But the best part of my life started 30 years ago when i got divorced. I celebrate every march. Thank my ex for teaching my sons how not to be. Thats love too believe it or not.💜🕉💜Thank you Reba McIntire for helping me through some of the best times of my life.💜🕉

    This song is what real love was. They say change is good. Its true. But I miss the old days when I would see houses like this and people really felt something for someone and not like today where you just jump into bed with someone ells and think nothing about it.

    Truly think that is missing in Country Music today. More junk songs can't understand words. This song take me back years so many times walk away from guys that drink or turn me away from me. Awesome song. Does hurt ones can't have. Every time hear song take me back my first job had back 1984 and later was fire and guy like never got chance be with. Boss rules. Kind funny how did my job better then his girlfriend at work. In factory job well Music and put mind to work. On book mark line. Guess say was very special talented comes to my work. Always enjoy Reba classic hits songs kind take you back good old days songs were pure country music sound. I truly miss them so much as Fans do. Why still collect old classic cds or records. Fun listen to. Bring back great memories was listening on radio stations .

  81. Nicholai Barak

    She did a really good job & I like the part where she thought she saw him @ the grocery store! But the album "What Am I Gonna Do About You" is really great & this is one of the best off it!

  82. Shon C
