"What You Do About Me" as written by Peter Zizzo, Mark Kinchen and Jimmy Bralower....
I wish that I was her and I wish that she was me.
But you've gotta let her go and you know that you agree.
Because how could we ever start, if you're afraid to break her heart.

You say you love me so.
But you have to let her go.

All that she wants is you.
And all that she sees is you.
All that you gotta do is set her free.
That's what, that's what, what you do about me.

Love's not an easy thing, if somebody gets hurt.
I know you were meant for me even though she saw you first.
You need to deal with her honestly.
I won't let you cheat with me.

I bet you never knew,
what you got yourself into.

All that she wants is you.
And all that she sees is you.
All that you gotta do is set her free.
That's what, that's what, what you do about me.

We could be beautiful
(We could be beautiful)
We could be so special
We could be wonderful

All that I want is you.
All that I see is you.
All that you gotta do is set her free.
That's what, that's what, what you do about me.

All that she wants is you.
And all that she sees is you.
All that you gotta do is set her free.
That's what, that's what, what you do about me.
What you do about me.
What you do about me.

    General Commentthis song is kinda obvious, a guy and a girl like each other but he already has a girlfriend. the girl wont let the guy cheat on his girlfriend with her though.
    'But deal with her honestly
    I won't let you cheat with me'
    its an ok song

    General CommentThe classic 'boy and girl fall in love even though boy is already taken' tale with the view switched. She doesn't want him to be dishonest with who he's with and she's telling him he needs to break up with her before they do anything. Of course, I've always had trouble empathizing with this song in particular. >_> Especially when I'm the one who was on the 'broken up with' side.

    General CommentFirst of all the lyrics here are wrong..

    "I bet you never knew
    What you've got yourself into"

    and the last bit

    "All that I want is you
    All that I see is you
    All that you gotta do
    Is to set her free
    That's what
    That's what
    What you do about me"

    This song is about almost cheating! but they both know its wrong because he has a gf and she doesn't want to get used! so she tells him to end it with his girl if he is serious about her because she wont let him cheat with her!
