Song Lyric Sunday | “Watching You” – Loose Ends

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “seeing.”

 ~~~~~
The mister suggested this thirty-year-old dance tune. It’s been a favorite of his since the days VH1 wasn’t the hot mess it is now did nothing but played great videos from every genre.
Brits Carl McIntosh, Jane Eugene, and founder Steve Nichol made up the R & B band Loose Ends and took Watching You (Watching Me) went all the way to number two on the U.S. R & B charts in 1988.

 

Enjoy!

Watching You (Watching Me)

by Loose Ends

Written by Carl McIntosh

Tell me something, why’s it oh so cold in my house
I’ve been feelin’ like the whole world’s
Been right on my shoulders

Since you’ve left there’s been black cat sittin’
On my door step
Was I hallucinatin’ cuz I’m sure he spoke to me he said

(Bridge)
Remember the time
(I don’t rememba?)
You drank to much wine
(but I was having so much fun, yeh, yeh)
You’re secret phone calls
(your secret lil’ business, you, you, know)
Some things you can’t hide

()
I’ve been watching
Watching you watching me
Tell me something
Why is o so cold your house
(I’ve been watching you)
*repeat*
(ooo so so cold in your house)

Tell me something why’s it oh so cold in your house
The sun is shining like the wind still whistles through the window
Can’t help thinkin there’s the some things
You’ve done peculiar, baby
Now I’ve been silent
But it’s time for me to say, to ya

(Bridge)
Remember the time
(which time baby?)
You drank to much wine
(but she was just a good friend)
Your secret phone calls
(you know I gotta take care of business)
Some things you can’t hide
(a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do)

()
I’ve been watching
Watching you watching me
Tell me something
Why’s it oh so cold your house
(my house)
*repeat 2 times*
I’ve been watching
(I’ve been watching you)

(Talk)
Grrr you’ve been such a bad boy
(oooo yeah)
You cheated on me and I found out ’bout ya
(oooo yeah)
Such a nastyyy boy
(oooo yeah)
Grrrrrrr
(oooo yeah)
So nastyy
(oooo yeah)

I’ve been watching you
()
I’ve been watching
Watching you watching me
(yehhhhh)
Tell me something why’s it oh so cold
Your house
(my house)
*repeat (till’ fades)*
