85l: Griffin Dunne / Rosanne Cash

Rosanne Cash performs “I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me”

…..Griffin Dunne
…..Rosanne Cash

Griffin Dunne: Once again – Rosanne Cash!

Rosanne Cash:
“It’s the right time you know I feel fine tonight (I don’t why you don’t want me)
It’s the right place I’ve got my new face tonight (I don’t why you don’t want me)
I’m in the right mind I’ve got my new shoes tonight (I don’t why you don’t want me)
I’ve got a new dress I couldn’t care less tonight (I don’t why you don’t want me)

Somebody told me I was so cold and mean (who was that talking)
Somebody wants you and don’t want me in between (she better start walkin’)
Somebody hurt you but baby she wasn’t me
We’ll find a new name for such a old game tonight (I don’t why you don’t want me)
I’ll show you how long that I can go on tonight (I don’t why you don’t want me)
I don’t know why you don’t want me

Just when I think that I can make it without you
You come round and say you want me now
You tell me don’t leave and I want to believe you
Why can’t you see just how much I need you

Somebody told me I was so cold and mean (who was that talking)
Somebody wants you and don’t want me in between (she better start walkin’)
Somebody hurt you but baby she wasn’t me

It’s the last chance for a romance tonight (I don’t why you don’t want me)
There’ll be no next time if you won’t be mine tonight (I don’t why you don’t want me)
I don’t know why you don’t want me.”
