I make it half past six you come at seven
Always try to keep me hanging 'round
You little spoilt thing girl you kept me waiting
Never contemplating my point of view
This comes as no surprise
I'm a fool for I believed your lies
But now I've seen through your disguise
Who needs well I don't need who needs you?

Oh I believed you
Went on my knees to you
How I trusted you
But you turned me down
But it's dog eat dog in this rat race
And it leaves you bleeding lying flat on your face
Reaching out, reaching out for a helping hand
Where is that helping hand? (Oh, muchachos)

(I like it I like it)

Ooh, well I don't need you

How I was pushed around?
Don't let it get you down
You walked all over me
But don't you ever give in
Taking one step forward slipping two steps back
There's an empty feeling that you can't forget
Reaching out (reaching out) for a helping (for a helping hand) hand

When I met you you were always charming
Couldn't sleep at night 'til you were mine
You were oh so, so sophisticated
Never interested in what I'd say
I had to swallow my pride
So naive you took me for a ride
But now I'm the one to decide
Who needs, well I don't need, who needs you?

    General CommentGreat song from John Deacon. Sounds great - good vocal from Fred. Seems to be about a pushy woman. I think John's songs are generally about his relationship with his wife, and the relationship seems to go up and down as he wrote You're My Best Friend, I Want to Break Free etc. Either that or he's had a few affairs along the way, but he's always seemed like a family man. But he was 'caught' coming out of a strip club once in the 90s I think

    General CommentHe was having an affair with a stripper and it was late 90's early 00's. But who cares. This song is about a woman or a man who keeps their parents mean to try and keep them keen. But the partner is having none of it in the end and tell's them "Who needs you?"

    General CommentThis song describes the problem of useless people. Failing to be there, even when in comes to the little things, perhaps? Constantly having to be there for someone and wanting them to do the same for you but instead they let you down time after time.
