What Have You Done For Me Lately

What Have You Done For Me Lately

Janet Jackson

"What's up girl?"
"He stood me up again."
"Again?"
"Um hmmm."
"Well, what's up with this guy? Do you really like him that much?"
"Yes, honey, I love him. He is fine; he does a lot of nice things for me."
"I know he used to do nice stuff for you, but what has he done for you lately?"

Used to be a time when you would pamper me.
Used to brag about it all the time.
Your friends seem to think that you're so peachy-keen,
But my friends say neglect is on your mind...
Who's right?

[Chorus]
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah.
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah.

Used to go to dinner almost every night;
Danced until I thought I'd lose my breath.
Now it seems your dancin' feet are always on my couch.
Good thing I cook or else we'd starve to death...
Ain't that a shame?

I never ask for more than I deserve;
You know it's the truth.
You seem to think you're God's gift to this Earth.
I'm tellin' you... no way.
You ought to be thankful for the little things,
But little things are all you seem to give.
You're always puttin' off what we could do today.
Soap opera says you've got one life to live;
Who's right, who's wrong?

[Chorus]

This is wild... I swear.
