"Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
There's some talk going 'round town
That you really don't give a damn
They say you really put me down
When I'm doing the best I can
I gave you all of my love
I even gave you my body
Tell me, baby, ain't that enough?
What more do you want me to do?
I play the fool when we're together
But I cry when we're apart, yeah
I couldn't do you no better
Don't break what left of my broken heart, baby

Why you want to treat me so bad
When you know I love you?
How can you do this to me
When you know I care?
Why you want to treat me so bad
When you know I love you?

You know, I try so hard
To keep you satisfied
Sometimes you play the part
Sometimes you're so full of pride
And if it's still good to ya
Why you want to treat me so bad?
You used to love it when I'd do you
You used to say I was the best you'd ever had

I play the fool when we're together
I give you everything I can, yeah
And if it's still good to ya
There's something that I can't understand

Why you want to treat me so bad
When you know I love you?
How can you do this to me
When you know I care?
Why you want to treat me so bad
When you know I love you?

    My InterpretationYet another doomed romance song disguised as an anti-industry/music biz rant. Prince's loud metal guitar flexes its Fender strings here!! He's the one still fighting for the rights of artists everywhere in rock & roll. When Prince got inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 04, he exclaimed "Your best friends are not on the payroll! The World System will never work out in the end! Peace!" Amen to that Prince! Someday my Prince will Come and Save Rock!
