Ain't That Peculiar

Ain't That Peculiar

Marvin Gaye

Honey, you do me wrong but still I'm crazy about you
Stay away too long and I can't do without you
Every chance you get, you seem to hurt me more and more
But each hurt makes my love stronger than before

I know flowers go through rain
But how can love go through pain

Ain't that peculiar
A peculiarity
Ain't that peculiar, baby
Peculiar as can be, oh

You tell me lies that should be obvious to me
Pardon so much in love with you baby 'til I don't want to see
But that things you do and say are designed to make me blue
It's a dog gone shame, my love, for you makes all your lies seem true

But if the truth makes love last longer
Why do lies make my love stronger

Ain't that peculiar, baby
Peculiar as can be
Ain't that peculiar
A peculiarity, yeah yeah

I cried so much just like a child that's lost its home
Maybe baby, you think these tears I cry are tears of joy
A child can cry so much until you do everything they say
But unlike a child, my tears don't help me to get my way

I know love can last through years
But how can love last through tears

Ain't that peculiar, baby
Peculiar as can be
Ain't that peculiar, honey
Peculiar as can be

Said, "I don't understand it, baby"
It's so strange sometimes
Ain't that peculiar, darlin'
Oh
