Payup Lyrics

Dominique
Take a seat up at the dinner table
I made a meal just for you, you
Go and lay up all your problems on me
I never need to ask you to do

You come home, you complain, it's like our tradition
I'm breaking my back just to get you to listen
I learn to keep quiet, I turn to submission
But you still want more

Gave you clarity (I did all that)
Made you family (I did all that)
Couples therapy (I did all that)
I really did that (She really did that)
All my energy (I did all that)
To give you anything and everything, yeah (I did all that)
What more can I do?
If that's not enough for you
You better pay up

I'm not working for free
Yeah, I got what you need but you better pay me
After all of this time
You'll be catching these fines
I'm not working for free
Yeah, I got what you need but you better pay me
After all of this time, gimme, gimme what's mine

Baby, I'm just so addicted to ya
But it's time to cut you loose, loose
So I'm writing up an invoice to ya
'Cause your bill is overdue

Gave you clarity (I did all that)
Made you family (I did all that)
Couples therapy (I did all that)
I really did that (She really did that)
All my energy (I did all that)
To give you anything and everything more (I did all that)
What more can I do?
If that's not enough for you
You better pay up

I'm not working for free
Yeah, I got what you need but you better pay me
After all of this time
You'll be catching these fines
I'm not working for free
Yeah, I got what you need but you better pay me
After all of this time, gimme, gimme what's mine

I'm not working for free
Emotional labour, I charge hourly
If you can't afford it, it's best that you leave
I'm not working for free
Emotional labour, I charge hourly
If you can't afford it, it's best that you leave

Are you really that offended, baby?
Well, you should've given more

Gave you clarity (I did all that)
Made you family (I did all that)
After all of this time
You'll be catching these fines
I'm not working for free
Yeah, I got what you need but you better pay me
After all of this time, gimme, gimme what's mine
