Pat Benatar PAYIN' THE COST TO BE THE BOSS Lyrics

Last updated:

You act like you wanna listen when I'm talkin' to you
You think you oughta do baby, anything you wanna do
You must be crazy baby
You just gotta be, outta your mind
As long as I'm payin' the bills
I'm payin' the cost to be the boss

I'll drink if I wanna, and play a little poker too
I don't want to hear nothin' from ya
As long as I'm takin' care of you
As long as I'm workin' baby, payin' all the bills
I don't want no mouth from you 'bout the way I'm supposed to live

You must be crazy baby
You just gotta be, outta your mind
As long as I'm footin' the bill
I'm payin' the cost to be the boss

Now that you got me huh, you act like you're ashamed
You don't act like my man - you're just usin' my name
I'm gonna have all the money baby
I don't want no back talk
You don't like how I'm doin'
You can pick up your things and walk

You must be crazy baby
You just gotta be, outta your mind
As long as I'm payin' the bills
I'm payin' the cost to be the boss

From the album "True Love"
