For Lovin' Me
performed by:
Gordon Lightfoot



That's what you get for lovin' me
That's what you get for lovin' me
Everything you had is gone,
as you can see
That's what you get for lovin' me.

I ain't the kind to hang around
With any new love that I've found
Movin' is my stock in trade
I'm movin on
I won't think of you when I'm gone.

So don't you shed a tear for me
I ain't the love you thought I'd be
I've got a hundred more like you
so don't be blue
I'll have a thousand 'fore I'm through.

Now there you go you're crying again
Now there you go you're crying again
But then someday when your poor heart
is on the mend
I just might pass this way again

That's what you get for lovin' me
That's what you get for lovin' me
Everything you had is gone, as you can see
That's what you get for lovin' me.





For Lovin' Me
performed by:
Elvis Presley

That's what you get for loving me
That's what you get for loving me
Everything we had is gone,
you can see
That's what you get for loving me

Now don't you shed a tear for me
I ain't the love you thought I'd be
I've had a hundred just like you
But don't be blue I'll have a thousand before I'm through

That's what you get for loving me
That's what you get for loving me
Everything we had is gone, you can see
That's what you get for loving me

Now there you go, you're cryin' again
You should have known how things would end
But then some day when your poor heart
is on the mend
I just might pass this way again

That's what you get for loving me
That's what you get for loving me
Everything we had is gone, you can see
That's what you get for loving me

That's what you get for loving me
That's what you get for loving me
Everything we had is gone, you can see
That's what you get for loving me
