If You Don’t Know Me By Now

If you don’t know me by now
You will nev­er nev­er nev­er know me

All the things
That we’ve been through
You should under­stand me
Like I under­stand you
Now girl I know the dif­fer­ence
Between right and wrong
I ain’t gonna do noth­ing
To break up our happy home
Don’t get so excited
When I come home
A little late at night
Cos we only act like chil­dren
When we argue fuss and fight

If you don’t know me by now
You will nev­er nev­er nev­er know me

We’ve all got our
Own funny moods
I’ve got mine,
Woman you’ve got yours too
Just trust in me like I trust in you
As long as we’ve been togeth­er
It should be so easy to do
Just get your­self togeth­er
Or we might as well say good­bye
What good is a love affair
When you can­’t see eye to eye

If you don’t know me by now
You will nev­er
Nev­er nev­er know me
