Why Don't You Love Me (Like You Used To Do)?

Why don't you love me like you used to do?
How come you treat me like a worn-out shoe?
My hair is still curly and my eyes are still blue
Why don't you love me like you used to do?

Ain't had no lovin' like a-huggin' and a-kissin' in a long, long while
We don't get nearer, further, closer than a country mile

Why don't you be the sort you used to be?
How come you find so many faults with me?
I'm the same old trouble that you've always been through
Why don't you love me like you used to do?

Ain't had no lovin' like a-huggin' and a-kissin' in a long, long while
We don't get nearer, further, closer than a country mile

Why don't you spark me like you used to do?
Say sweet nothings like you used to coo
Somebody's changed, so let me give you a clue
Why don't you love me like you used to do?

Why don't you love me like you used to do?
Why don't you love me like you used to do?
