I Want You To Want Me
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


And I want you to want me
Yeah, I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me, hey yeah
I'm beggin' you to beg me
And I want you to want me
I need you to need me
Yeah, I'd love you to love me

I'll shine up the old brown shoes
I'll put on a brand new shirt
I'll get home early from work
If you say that you love me
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
See you cryin'
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Hear you cry
Yeah, feelin' all alone without a friend
You know you feel like dyin'
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Hear you cry

And I want you to want me
Yeah, I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me
Hey, I'm beggin' you to beg me

I'll shine up the old brown shoes
Put on a brand new shirt
I'll get home early from work
If you say that you love me
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
See you cryin'
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Hear you cry
Yeah, feelin' all alone without a friend
You know you feel like dyin'
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Hear you cry

I'll shine up the old brown shoes
Put on a brand new shirt
I'll get home early from work
If you say that you love me
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
See you cryin'
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Hear you cry
Yeah, feelin' all alone without a friend
You know you feel like dyin'
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Hear you cry

And I want you to want me
Yeah, I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me
Oh, I want you to want me

I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me
I'm begging you to beg me
I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me

I'll shine up the old brown shoes
Put on a brand new shirt
I'll get home early from work 
If you say that you love me

Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you crying?
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you crying?
Feeling all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dying 
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you crying?

I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me
I'm begging you to beg me

I'll shine up the old brown shoes
Put on a brand-new shirt
I'll get home early from work 
If you say that you love me

Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you crying?
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you crying?
Feeling all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dying
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you crying?

Feelin' all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dying
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you crying?

I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me
I'm begging you to beg me
I want you to want me
I want you to want me
I want you to want me
I want you to want me

Today’s country can’t hold a candle to Dwight😍

Now this is good old country

This is the only country artist I can imagine who could cover Elvis, Queen, and Cheap Trick and kill all three. Excellent!

Louise Rawle

Oh yes indeed!

cattus lavandula

@Mr Coffee yup, agreed!

Mr Coffee

Robin Zander sings this song the best, but I like Dwight's version as well.🤗🔥

He is a cheap suit with no foot holes waiting to fatten.

This is country music not the current shit. Dwight Yoakam and Buck Owens forever.

Darren Sanchez

Luke Combs and Morgan Wallen are good though.
