Well you don't like, don't like the way I walk
And you don't like, don't like the way I talk
You criticize about me endlessly
Like it defies how you got stuck with me
And you complain about the clothes I wear
And you explain there's other boys out there
And you complain my car makes too much noise
And you cry I'm always out with the boys

I give up little darling, yeah, no matter what I do
Hey, you know it's true, ain't good enough for you

You complain the way I love you at night
You explain I'm really not your type
If we go out you say I'm such a bore
If you stay in say what are we living for?

Understand there's nothing I can do
There ain't no way I can satisfy you
And then at night, I lean in for a kiss
Here comes a pitch, Swing and a miss!

Oh o, I quit little darling, yeah, no matter what I do
Girl, you know it's true, ain't good enough for you

Oh o, hey hey little darling, no matter what I do
Girl, you know it's true, ain't good enough for you

I tried to change I got a job in sales
I bought a shirt uptown in Bloomingdales
And babe I tried to make the latest's scene
Hidden cool just like Jimmy Iovine
I bought a record with all the latest grooves
A book of love with all the latest moves
I brought some flowers and I went at your door
And you came out didn't wanna see me

Oh o, I quit little darling, no matter what I do
Girl, you know it's true, ain't good enough for you

No matter what I do
Girl, you know it's true, ain't good enough for you

No matter what I do
Girl, you know it's true, ain't good enough for you

    General CommentLove this song! Meaning is quite simple :) I find it hard to believe the boss himself would have this problem!

    My InterpretationMy mom doesn't like this song a whole lot because she says it's "sad," but I think she's completely missing Bruce's laughs and the overall fun feeling of it. To me it's more like "all well, I tried, what more can I do?" I love this one, it's got a really nice '60s tune that's extremely hard not to dance to.
