​What Are You Gonna Do

This song is by Creedence Clearwater Revival and appears on the album Mardi Gras (1972).

When you're alone
You come back crying and you want to go home
For someone forgetting, it seems
Like you're letting it take you away from me

Was your idea to pack up and go?
You said you had no life of your own
Moving in was not too hard to do
You got second thoughts, you're gonna have to choose

What are you gonna do?
Forget about your mother and think about you
For someone forgetting, it seems
Like you're letting it take you away from me

Told you all the secrets that were mine
The good things that I picked up over time
Won't accept the reason why you're here
Talk things out, overcome the fear

What are you gonna do?
Forget about your mother and think about you
For someone forgetting, it seems
Like you're letting it take you away from me

What are you gonna do?
Forget about your mother and think about you
For someone forgetting, it seems
Like you're letting it take you away from me

Thought that I was all that you need
You told me things I wanted to believe
You know that leaving me would be wrong
Stay with me, I'll help you to be strong.

What are you gonna do?
Forget about your mother and think about you.
For someone forgetting, it seems
Like you're letting it take you away from me

What are you gonna do?
Forget about your mother and think about you
For someone forgetting, it seems
Like you're letting it take you away from me

What are you gonna do?
Forget about your mother and think about you
For someone forgetting, it seems
Like you're letting it take you away from me

What are you gonna do?
Forget about your mother and think about you
For someone forgetting, it seems
Like you're letting
