The White Stripes' Lyrics

You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You're Told)

In some respects
I suspect you've got
A respectable side.

When pushed and pulled
And pressured,
You seldom run and hide.

But it's for someone else's benefit
Not for what you want to do.
And until I realize that you've realized
I'm gonna say these words to you:

You don't know what love is
You just do as you're told.
Just as a child of ten might act
But you're far too old.
You're not hopeless,

Or helpless
And I hate to sound cold...
But you don't know what love is
You just do as you're told.

I can see your man can't help but win
Any problems that may arise.
But in his mind there can be no sin
If you never criticize.
You just keep on repeating all those
Empty "I love you"'s.
Until you see that you deserve better
I'm gonna lay right into you.

You don't know what love is
You do as you're told.
Just as a child of ten might act
But you're far too old.
You're not hopeless,
Or helpless.
And I hate to sound cold.

But you don't know what love is
No you don't know what love is
No you don't know what love is...

You just do as you're told
Yeah,
You do as you're told.
