01. Out In The Street

Out!

Out in the street
I'm talkin' 'bout slowly
I'm not gonna rest
Woman, you don't know me

Yeah, you don't know me, no
Know me, no
Know me, no
Yeah, but I'm a-gonna know you

Hey listen, woman
You just can't throw me
I won't stand it
If you don't know me

If you don't know me, no
Know me, no
Know me, no
Yeah, but I'm a-gonna know you

Listen to me
I'm telling you
You look at me, woman
Yeah, tell the truth

I know your mind
I can see that you're in need
I'll show you woman
Yeah, that you belong to me

You're gonna know me, no
Know me, no
Know me, no
Yeah, I'm a-gonna know you

Give me no reasons
Said you'd go free
It's not gonna be now
If you gotta know me

You're gonna know me now
Know me now
Know me now
Yeah, you're gonna know me


02. I Don't Mind

I don't mind your love
I don't mind the one you're thinkin' of
I know, I know
You gonna miss me

I don't mind your love so sound
I don't mind, it can't go cold
I know, I know
You gonna miss me

I don't mind, it's the end of my song
I don't mind, good-bye, so long
I know, said, baby I know
You gonna miss me


03. The Good's Gone

I know when I've had enough
When I think your love is rough

[chorus:]
The good's gone
The good's gone
The good's gone
The good's gone
The good's gone out of our love
I know it's wrong
We should enjoy it, but
The good's gone
The good's gone

Once we used to get along
Now, each time we kiss, it's wrong

[chorus]

Now it ain't no fun
And the good's gone now
We used to love as one
But we have forgotten now

I know when I've had enough
When I think your love is rough

[chorus]

It's gone forever


04. La-La-La-Lies

If I'm so lost without a friend
Tell me, who's this by my side?
This girl with eyes like gems
And cool reactions to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

You can't repeat what you put 'round
All the things that made me cry
You kicked me when I was down
And they hurt me all those lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

I've got my girl and together we're strong
To laugh at you and prove you wrong

I don't insist that you feel bad
I just want to see you smile
Don't ever think you made me mad
I didn't listen to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

If I'm so lost without a friend
Tell me, who's this by my side?
This girl with eyes like gems
And cool reactions to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

I don't insist that you feel bad
I just want to see you smile
Don't ever think you made me mad
I didn't listen to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies


05. Much Too Much

Much too much to bear

Your love is hard and fast
Your love will always last
If it's you I need
I've got to pay the levy
Got to pay
'Cause your love's too heavy on me

And it's much too much to bear

If I ever leave you darlin'
I hope you see
That I really love you
But your love's too heavy on me

And it's much too much to bear

When I make love to you
Do all the things you want me to do
You never think of me
Always cry a bevy
Bevy of tears
'Cause your love's too heavy on me

And it's much too much to bear

There was a time I could give all I had to you
But my enthusiasm waned and I can't bear the pain
Of doing what I don't want to do

Much too much to bear

Your love is hard and fast
Your love will always last
If it's you I need
I've got to pay the levy
Got to pay
'Cause your love's too heavy on me

And it's much too much to bear


06. My Generation

People try to put us d-down (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we get around (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I hope I die before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don't you all f-fade away (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
And don't try to dig what we all s-s-say (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm not trying to cause a big s-s-sensation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-g-generation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don't you all f-fade away (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
And don't try to d-dig what we all s-s-say (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm not trying to cause a b-big s-s-sensation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-generation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

People try to put us d-down (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we g-g-get around (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Yeah, I hope I die before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby


07. The Kids Are Alright

I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl
That's fine, I know them all pretty well
But I know sometimes I must get out in the light
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright

Sometimes, I feel I gotta get away
Bells chime, I know I gotta get away
And I know if I don't, I'll go out of my mind
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright

I know if I go things would be a lot better for her
I had things planned, but her folks wouldn't let her

I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl
That's fine, I know them all pretty well
But I know sometimes I must get out in the light
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright

Sometimes, I feel I gotta get away
Bells chime, I know I gotta get away
And I know if I don't, I'll go out of my mind
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright


08. Please, Please, Please

Please, please, please, please me (You don't have to go)
Baby please, baby please, please me (You don't have to go)
Baby please, baby please don't go (You don't have to go)
Don't go, I said baby, don't baby
I love you so (You don't have to go)

Baby, you know you broke my heart when you went away (You don't have to go)
I said, I said, I said I'll see you some other day (You don't have to go)
I said, baby, baby, please, don't go (You don't have to go)
Don't go, no baby, no baby
I love you so (You don't have to go)

Take this pain from my heart

Baby, let me take you by the hand (You don't have to go)
Baby, baby let me, let me be your lover man (You don't have to go)
Baby please, baby please don't go (You don't have to go)
Don't go, I said baby, don't baby
I love you so (You don't have to go)

Please, please, please, please me (You don't have to go)
Baby please, baby please, please me (You don't have to go)
Baby please, baby please don't go (You don't have to go)
Don't go, I said baby, don't baby
I love you so (You don't have to go)

Please please me


09. It's Not True

It's not true

You say I've been in prison
You say I've got a wife
You say I've had help doing
Everything throughout my life

[chorus:]
It's not true, it's not true
I'm telling you
'Cause I'm up here and you're nowhere
It's not true, so there

I haven't got eleven kids
I weren't born in Baghdad
I'm not half-Chinese either
And I didn't kill my dad

[chorus]

If you hear more rumors
You can just forget them too
Fools start the rumors
None of them are true

[chorus]

You say I've been in prison
You say I've got a wife
You say I've had help doing
Everything throughout my life

I haven't got eleven kids
I weren't born in Baghdad
I'm not half-Chinese either
And I didn't kill my dad

[chorus]

[chorus]


11. A Legal Matter

I told you why I changed my mind
I got bored by playing with time
I know you thought you had me nailed
But I've freed my head from your garden rails

Now it's a legal matter, baby
You got me on the run
It's a legal matter, baby
A legal matter from now on

My mind's lost in a household fog
Wedding gowns and catalogs
Kitchen furnishings and houses
Maternity clothes and baby's trousers

Now it's a legal matter, baby
Marryin's no fun
It's a legal matter, baby
A legal matter from now on

I told you why I changed my mind
I got bored by playing with time
I know you thought you had me nailed
Well, I've freed my head from your garden rails

Now it's a legal matter, baby
You got me on the run
It's a legal matter, baby
A legal matter from now on

You ain't the first and you ain't the last
I gain and lose my women fast
I never want to make them cry
I just get bored, don't ask me why

Just wanna keep doing all the dirty little things I do
And not work all day in an office just to bring my money back to you
Sorry, baby
