You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You're Told) Lyrics - The White Stripes

Review The Song (3)



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 its for someone elses benefit
Not for what you wanna do
Until I realize that you've realized
I'm gonna say these words to you

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

You just do as you're told

I can see you man
cant 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 you deserve better
I'm gonna lay right into you

You don't know what love is
you just do as you're told
just as a child of ten might act
but your far too old
your 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
you do as you're told
yeah

The obvious | Reviewer: Harold | 1/23/11

The song is basically about someone who isn't mature enough to handle a relationship and its consequences, thus the comparison to a ten year old child.

A perfect reply song to this would be "I Want to Know What Love Is". Ha.



Good song | Reviewer: pedro | 3/4/09

Brittany, he lyrics have sense, and Jack is an artist, we shouldn't mind who is he playing, because in some songs, like Jolene, he plays a woman in the song. The song is great, the White Stripes never let me down...



Hmm... | Reviewer: Brittany | 9/3/07

The White Stripes have always been one of my favorites because they are so original. They kind of let me down on this song. I think that Jack singing about someone acting like a ten year old isn't the most meaningful thing but it's better than him singing about sex I suppose.
