Lyrics

Got It Bad

I can’t eat
And I can’t sleep
People say they see a change in me
In what I say
In what I do
You charge me up like a can of rocket fuel

Hey, you came along like a brick to my head
You had me hooked on everything you said
You look so good you know you drive me mad
Oh what’d you do to me
You know I think I’ve got it bad

I can’t stand up
I can’t stand still
I’m walking round like a mad man ready to kill
I can’t think
About anything
I’ll be like this ’til I see your face again

Hey, you came along like a brick to my head
You had me hooked on everything you said
You look so good and you know you drive me mad
Oh what’d you do to me
You know I think I’ve got it bad

Bad, bad, bad
Well I’ve got it bad
Bad, bad, bad

You know I think I’ve got it bad
Bad, bad, bad
I’ve got it bad
Bad, bad, bad

Angel 'O' Mine

I can see your face, but I know that you’re not there
I can smell your body, your scent still lingers in the air
And it’s been so long, since I held you tight
Angel ‘O’ Mine

And it’s been so long, it’s been so long
I wanna hold you tonight

I can hold your hand now, when I close my eyes
I can feel your body, I can feel it next, next to mine
Yes I can
I can hear your voice as you say goodnight
Angel ‘O’ Mine

And it’s been so long, it’s been so long
I wanna hold you tonight

You make me feel like I’ve never known
And just for you, I’ve got so much love to show
You came along out of the blue, and I would do anything for you

I’m lying here alone, an empty space where you should be
I know it won’t be long now, before you’re lying here again with me
No it won’t

And it’s been so long since I held you tight
Angel ‘O’ Mine
And it’s been so long, it’s been so long, I wanna hold you tonight

Without You

Just sitting here thinking, thinking of you
What it might be like, if you were here too
I wonder what you’re doing
And if you’re keeping alright

And do you think of me
When you lie awake at night
And do you think of me
When you lie awake at night

You know sometimes when I feel
I know it feels as though, as though I’m out on my own
As though I’ve given so much
Got nothing, got nothing to show

You know you you’re always there for me
To tell my, to tell my troubles to
And do I have the same affect upon you
And do I have the same affect upon you

I look forward to seeing you
Next time that we, next time that we meet
You know maybe a couple of months
You know maybe, maybe a couple of weeks
And I hope you don’t mind, I hope you don’t mind me
Talking about you

Are you thinking about me
I’m thinking of you
Are you thinking of me
I’m thinking of you
Well are you thinking of me
I’m thinking of you
Oh are you thinking of me
I’m thinking of you

She's A Woman

She’s a woman
Yeah, but that’s alright
She’s a woman
Yeah, that’s alright
You know anything she say or do
You know you’re wrong and she’s right

You know my baby, she thinks she can tell me what to do
I ain’t surprised how many men she’s been through
Wakes me in the morning she’s as nice as can be
She says we’re going shopping but that’s news to me

But she’s a woman
Yeah, but that’s alright
You know anything she say or do
You know you’re wrong and she’s right

She drags me round town all day, she needs a new dress
She says “Shut up moaning, they take American Express”
Yeah it’s different when we’re in a record shop
They maybe sober, today we’re not

But she’s a woman
Yeah, that’s alright
You know anything she say or do
You know you’re wrong and she’s right

She takes my car without my consent
She’s never had a smash but she’s seen around town
Now if I want to borrow something from her
I’d have to get down on my knees and beg for it first

But she’s a woman
Yeah, that’s alright
You know anything she say or do
You know you’re wrong and she’s right

She’s a woman
Yeah, that’s alright
You know anything she say or do
You know you’re wrong and she’s right

Five Long Years

Have you ever been mistreated
Then you’ve gotta know what I’m talking about
Have you ever been mistreated
Then you gotta know what I’m talking about
Lord, I worked five long years for the same woman
And she had the nerve to put me out

I got a job at a steel mill,
I was chucking steel like a slave
Five long years, but Friday I come home
I said Lord, Lord, I said Lord with all my pay

I said I’ve been mistreated
Then you gotta know what I’m talking about
Five long years, but Friday I come home
She had the nerve to put me out

You know I’ve finally learnt my lesson
I should’ve known a long time ago
The next woman that I marry
Gonna have two jobs and
She gonna work, gonna work and bring me the dough

I’ve been mistreated
Then you gotta know, you got to know, you gotta know what I’m talking about
Five long years the same woman
I said she had the nerve, she had the nerve to put me out
Yeah

Won't Take U Back

Can’t you remember, the good times that we had
You threw it all away and you left me for another man
Oh but I took you back, you said it was a mistake
But don’t come running back now because I won’t take you back again
Won’t take you back again

In the cold light of day things don’t seem the same
It might be sunny now but tomorrow may be rain, hey hey
Looks like rain
But I won’t take you back again

I’ll be over you one day pretty soon
Put my heart back together that was broke over you
But for now my tears, you know they fall like the rain
I hope you’re happy now because I won’t take you back again
I won’t take you back again

In the cold light of day things don’t seem the same
It might be sunny now but tomorrow may be rain
Looks like rain
But I won’t take you back, I won’t take you back again
Won’t take you back, won’t take you back again
Won’t take you back, won’t take you back again
Won’t take you back, won’t take you back again
Won’t take you back, won’t take you back again

Soundman

Well excuse me please
You’re standing in my way
I don’t care who you are
I don’t care what you say
They call me the soundman and I’m having a real bad day

Well hey you over there
Turn that damn thing down
Ain’t you been told before
You don’t need it that damn loud
Hey, I’m the soundman and I’ll pull your plugs right out

But don’t you know, don’t you know
That I’ve got control over you
But don’t you know, don’t you know
That I’ll pull the plug on you

Flick that switch, turn that down
Well set it on number two
That sounds alright to me
Don’t care what you normally do

‘Cause I’m the soundman and I know a damn sight more than you
Because I’m the soundman and I know a god damn more than you

But don’t you know, don’t you know
That I control over you
But don’t you know, don’t you know
That I’ll pull the plug on you

But don’t you know, don’t you know
That I got control over you
Don’t you know, don’t you know
I’ll pull the plug on you
Yes I will

Need Her So Bad

Well did you ever quit a woman
Then you realise that you need her so bad
Did you ever quit a woman
Then you realise that you need her so bad
Now she belongs to someone else
And she’s someone that you just can’t have

Did you ever turn to cry
Then you realise that it’s just too late
Did you ever turn to cry
And you realise that it’s just too late
Because the girl you had to yourself
She ain’t coming back, no way, no

Well did you ever feel lonely
And you’ve no, nowhere to turn
Well did you ever feel lonely
And you’ve no, nowhere to turn
Then you realise that you’re paying the price
For what you did, for what you did to her

Since I Met You Baby

I used to wake up in the morning with an aching head
I couldn’t remember anything I’d said
My friends told me I was getting out of line
If it wasn’t for you baby, I’d be doing time

Since I met you baby
You’ve made a new man of me
Since I met you baby
I’m happy as a man could be

I used to think I was better than the rest
Ain’t no doubt about it, I was no second best
Didn’t seem to matter what was right or what was wrong
I did some crazy things before you came along

Since I met you baby
You’ve made a new man of me
Since I met you baby
I’m happy as a man could be

Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Well since I met you baby
I’m happy as a man could be

Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Well, since I met you baby
I’m happy as a man could be

I Believe

I had a dream when I was young 
Of what I wanted from me 
What I would do when I turned 21 
And now I’m there I know that nothing comes free
I’ve been trying so hard 
For what I want and what I need

‘Cause I believe
I believe 
‘Cause I believe 
I believe

You gotta know what you want 
Keep the faith, my friend 
‘Cause I’m only half way there 
But I can see the end

Everybody knows what I mean 
Because everybody must have a dream 
You gotta believe it

‘Cause I believe 
I believe

Once upon a time you know a wise man told me 
He said tell me your dreams and I’ll see what I can do 
Well he never told me yeah, but he never told me no
He said not just yet but it will come to you 
Oh it will come to you

All Along The Watchtower

There must be some way outta here
Said the joker to the thief
There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief

Business men, they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None of them down along the line
No one of them offered his word

No reason to get excited
The thief, he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I we’ve been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
Because you know the hour’s getting late

All along the watchtower
Princes kept their view
While women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl

Identity Blues

Well now nobody seemed to listen
Nobody seemed to understand
Well now nobody seemed to listen
Nobody seemed to understand
Just give me half a chance
To show who I really am

Well I might not have looked like what you want me to
Or be as sure as you may be
Well I might not have looked like what you want me to
Or be as sure as you may be
Well don’t judge me baby
Until you know the real me

Well I might seem a little quiet
But maybe I ain’t got anything to say
Well I might seem a little quiet
But maybe I ain’t got anything to say
Well that’s a bad bad shame
If you see me that way
