What's Important to Me

by Hall & Oates

on Daryl Hall & John Oates (1975)

Baby, now that I've known you for a long time
It's time I told you something that's on my mind
And lately you never listen to a word I say
We're two different people, don't always see it the same way
Not always the same way, and baby

What's important to me, yeah
Ain't nothing to ya (Ain't nothing)
It ain't important to you
Ooh, now baby, what's important to me, yeah
Ain't nothing to ya (Ain't nothing)
Ain't important to you

Remember when we could talk together with our eyes
You feel you have something girl, and then that feeling dies
I'm trying, but I can't think of anything to do
To bring it back, to bring back the feeling
That I knew, and you knew and we knew and woah, baby

What's important to me, yeah
Ain't nothing to ya (Ain't nothing)
It ain't important to you
Ooh and lady, what's important to me, yeah
Ain't nothing to ya (Ain't nothing)
Ain't important to you

Oh, when I look for tommorow, you remind me of yesterday
What I have you can borrow, all I'm asking is return it
The same way you gave it, now baby

What's important to me, yeah
Ain't nothing to ya (Ain't nothing)
It ain't important to you
It don't mean nothing to you, nothing to you, now
Baby, what's important to me, yeah
Ain't nothing to you (Ain't nothing)
Ain't important to you
Oh, don't mean nothing to you, nothing to you, now
Baby, what's important to me, yeah
Ain't nothing to you (Ain't nothing)
Ain't important to you
