Jody Watley - Everything You Do Lyrics




Lucky, lucky me
I've got my hands on you
I had to wait around
But finally I'm the lucky one
I knew it from the start
That you would break my heart
Still I insist today
I wouldn't have it any other way

I ain't mad at you, oh, no
For running your game
In fact I can't blame you
It was my idea to play
There's no use pretending
I'm not letting go
I think I should you want you
I think that you should know

It makes me moan
When we're alone
Alone, just me and you
(With you, boy)
I'm so at home
'Cause you're the bomb
With everything you do
So would you mind
If you had the time
If I can't deal with you
Don't change a thing
I'll try and hang
With everything you do, boy

Lucky, lucky you
You got your cake and ate it too
They label me the fool
I label me the lucky one
You captivate my heart
You cast your spell on me
You waved your magic wand
Now I'm feeling like the lucky one

I ain't mad at you, hey, man
For running your game
In fact I can't blame you
It was my idea to play
There's no use pretending
I'm not letting go
I think I should you want you
I think that you should know

It makes me moan
When we're alone
Alone, just me and you
(Ooh-ooh-ooh...)
I'm so at home
'Cause you're the bomb
With everything you do
So would you mind
If you had the time
If I can't deal with you
Don't change a thing
I'll try and hang
With everything you do, boy

It makes me moan
When we're alone
Alone, just me and you
I'm so at home
'Cause you're the bomb
With everything you do
(Ooh-ooh-ooh...)
So would you mind
If you had the time
If I can't deal with you
Don't change a thing
I'll try and hang
With everything you do, boy

Mmm-mmm, you're the bomb
With everything you do, boy

It makes me moan
When we're alone
Alone, just me and you
I'm so at home
'Cause you're the bomb
With everything you do
So would you mind
If you had the time
If I can't deal with you
(Ooh-ooh...)
Don't change a thing
I'll try and hang
With everything you do, boy

It makes me moan
When we're alone
Alone, just me and you
I'm so at home
'Cause you're the bomb
With everything you do
So would you mind
If you had the time
If I can't deal with you
Don't change a thing
I'll try and hang
With everything you do, boy

Jody Watley Everything You Do Comments
  1. Yediydeyah Nabiy Yisra'el Yahudah

    Damn this was my joint from back in the day. Jody Watley that's my girl man she still got it still a beautiful Black Queen.

  2. ascales30

    Some songs just do it for you and this was definitely one!!!

  3. David Eisler

    Before there was Madonna, Beyonce, and Cardi B, there was Jody. 🙂

  4. b vines

    Still a jam in 2020

  5. Roger Cobbs

    You made your mark in music world Jody you hit the ball out the park

  6. blaize1

    Music that formed the soundtrack of my teenage years.

  7. Dionta Williams

    POSE featured this song on the girls trip episode

  8. PeekaPeep

    She was Shalamar's "secret weapon" back during their peak years with Howard Hewett and Jeffrey Daniel. Had one of the best crossover singing voices around back then, too. Jody was basically everything Madonna and a good chunk of the female R&B/Pop artists wanted to be on the down low during the 2nd half of the 80s, but neither could quite pull off the total package that she clearly possessed. Shanice (Wilson-Alexander) did show promise during the early-90s, but never could find the right management or producer to get her to where her natural talents should've taken her. Makes Jody the last of the finest, I guess...

  9. Thomas Schmidt

    ...one of the best evergreens from the mega beautiful Jody... thank you forever 💖🔥👌

  10. Gyn Taylor

    Sorry guys, love the song but, dancing was her day job!

  11. MsLRom

    Reminds me of my Baby Girl. Ceciley, Oct. 10 - Oct. 14 , 1988. Time does not always mend a broken heart but you learn to live with the pain and emptiness.

    ANYTHING FOR EVERYTHING 🗻💘💘💘💘💘💘💘

  78. Alonzo J Neloms

    When I look back at those times! I believe Ms.Watley was just putting in the hard work and sacrifice! Never thought it would become Iconic! 30years plus later! There are Albums with the title cut! Hoping to carry the Album! Sometimes there are other songs more popular! That carry the Album. Sometimes you just don't know! Quality is the main fiber. And die hard fans appreciate it!

  79. Cheryl Simpson

    The love of Jody's music, never changes. It makes you wanna love, cry, sing etc. It just gives you a good feeling.

  80. Diane Smith

    Classy act & lady....still holds up today!

  81. Kathy Carter

    She is Awesome going to see her in concert oct19...2019

  82. Brian Mcdew

    I was stationed in Germany when this came out in 1989, beautiful memories. I was 19 then so far away from home, being from Florida. I had a tour of 1 1/2, I extended for another year just to stay in Germany. Beautiful place I hope to return in 2020 for a visit.

    Nevergiveup

    Were you there when the Berlin wall came down?

    Brian Mcdew

    Yes I was in Hanau Germany from 1988-1990. Best times of my life. Some soldiers had pieces of the wall as Souvenirs. I was 19 didn’t know the history I was witnessing. I understand know as I’m older Germany is a great country.

  83. Starrtasia Jackson

    My all time favorite song by Jody Watley

  84. Erin 420

    This song makes me think of my ex, but i still love it💜

  85. Alonzo Neloms

    I love you! JW! You are so intoxicating!! A total package. The eyes, high cheek bones, and those earrings! If i had a choice of all the 80's Divas! You are the No. 1! Hands down! Leaving Fanasty Land! I believe let them know. How you really feel about them! While they are alive! When you can still feel Butterflies! That's saying alot. Enjoy the rest of your life! Going underground. Later...

  86. Alonzo Neloms

    Just to open the door! Unexpecting after the knock on the door! Standing at the door with those eyes and smile! When someone you love calls your name! I would give and do anything just to feel that again! I just wanted to be happy! Massive Love!

  87. Alonzo Neloms

    Just wanted to visit! This song is stuck in my head! Thïs is the story of my life! It's lonely to celebrate the Holidays alone! They just don't feel the same! I pray she will come one day! Maybe thïs is the year?

  88. neno brown brown

    These new women don't know about these junts Jody slept on 100

  89. Stargirl 4532

    The best song by her

  90. Alonzo J Neloms

    Old School love is the best love! A true love had your back! You laugh and cried together! It was good to love somebody. And they loved you back! Tears that burned. Sliding across the bridge of your nose! To the other side. Into your ear! You're in love! How could they do that? Later it was a misunderstanding! I knew it. Lying you're behind off.

  91. Alonzo J Neloms

    Like I said before! If they invent a time machine! I'm going back to the 80's! I'm staying there! I will just keep falling in love over and over! All Fam and friends were alive then! I cherish memories and pictures! A pure heart for optimistic outcomes! I wouldn't trade it for nothing! The tapery and the demographics. The back drop. The moments when euphoria feelings got the best of me! Closing the book......bam!

  92. Latoya Foster

    My favorite song by her......❤❤❤❤❤❤

  93. DrRiddlez2015

    This song peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1990
