​Ain't That Peculiar

This song is by Bettye Swann and appears on the album Don't You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me? (1969).

Honey, you do me wrong but still I'm crazy about you
Stayed away so long, you know I can't do without you
Every chance you get, you try to hurt me more and more
But all that hurt does makes me love you more than before

Flowers must grow from rain
But how can love grow from pain
(Pain, pain, pain, pain, pain)

Ain't it peculiar (Ain't it peculiar)
Peculiarity (Ain't it peculiar)
Ain't it peculiar, baby (Ain't it peculiar)
Seems so strange to me (Ain't it peculiar) oh

You tell me lies that should be obvious to me
But I'm so much in love with you, baby 'til I just don't wanna see
The things you do are designed to make me blue
It's a shame my love for you makes all your little lies seem true

If truth should make love last longer
How can lies make it stronger
(Stronger, stronger, stronger, stronger, stronger)

Ain't it peculiar (Ain't it peculiar)
Peculiar as can be (Ain't it peculiar)
Ain't it peculiar, baby (Ain't it peculiar)
Peculiarity (Ain't it peculiar)

I cried so much just like a child that's lost the toy
I believe you think that these tears I'm crying are tears of joy
A child can cry so much, you do everything they say
But unlike a child, my tears don't help me to get my way

Love can last for years
But how can love last through tears
(Tears, tears, tears, tears, tears)

Ain't it peculiar (Ain't it peculiar)
Peculiar as can be (Ain't it peculiar)
Ain't it peculiar, baby (Ain't it peculiar)
Seems so strange to me (Ain't it peculiar)
Can't understand it, baby (Ain't it peculiar)
Peculiarity (Ain't it peculiar)
Ain't it peculiar
