Lyrics 

I know what you’re doing, yeah, yeah

I know why you dialed my number

I know what you’re doing, yeah, yeah

I know why you care

I know what you’re doing, yeah, yeah

I know why you say you love me

I know what you’re doing, yeah, yeah

And I don’t think it’s fair

I know why you dialed my number

I know why you say you’re mine

I know what you’re doing

And it’s not gonna work this time

Not gonna work this time

I know what you’re doing, yeah, yeah

I can never sing in that key

I know what you’re doing, yeah, yeah

And you’re the one to blame

I know what you’re doing, yeah, yeah

I know why you can’t forgive me

I know why you’re singing lost love

The lyrics haven’t changed

I can recognize the symptoms

You should know I’ve changed my mind

I know what you’re doing

And it’s not gonna work this time

Hey, said it’s not gonna work this time

Not gonna work this time

Not gonna work this time

I know what you’re doing, baby

I know why you call my name

I know why you say you love me

But I can’t say the same

I can recognize the symptoms

You should know I’ve changed my mind

I know what you’re doing

And it’s not gonna work this time

Yeah, yeah, yeah
