Look what you're doing, I'm feeling blue and lonely,
Would it be too much to ask of you,
What you're doing to me?

You got me running and there's no fun in it,
Why should it be so much to ask of you,
What you're doing to me?

I've been waiting here for you,
Wond'ring what you're gonna do,
Should you need a love that's true,
It's me.

Please stop your lying, you've got me crying, girl,
Why should it be so much to ask of you,
What you're doing to me?

What you're doing to me.

    General CommentWhy would you think it's a Ringo song when Paul sings it and it's credited to Lennon & McCartney? Anyway, I'm a big fan of this one. Paul just sounds so heartbreakingly sincere. Maybe it's not the deepest of songs, but the emotion is right there! Also, the drumming is great.

    General CommentThis is a standout track from their "Beatles For Sale" LP. It was the first album I ever heard, and I've been hooked ever since.

    General CommentThis is a very enjoyable song. One of the best of BFS. It's one of those songs that will make you smile whatever mood your in. Georges lead is superb. It's incredable how it still sounds freash even though it's coming up to 50 years old.

    General CommentThis is a straightforward Paul song about a relationship on the rocks. It's memorable because of the fantastic guitar hook and drum intro.
