Aberdeen
(by Bukka White) recording of 1995, from Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621)
I was over in Aberdeen,
on my way to New Orleans
I was over in Aberdeen,
on my way to New Orleans
Well them Aberdeen women told me,
they would give me my gasoline

Aberdeen is my home,
but they just don't want me around
Aberdeen is my home,
but they just don't want me around
I'm gonna take these women,
take them out this town

Well just look over yonder,
coming down the road
Well just look over yonder,
coming down the road
That must be my baby coming,
tell me she don't want me no more

Well there's too many women,
I ain't never seen
Well there's too many women,
I ain't never seen
I bring too many women,
back from New Orleans

I was standin' 'round cryin',
with my heart right in my hand
I was standin' 'round cryin',
with my heart right in my hand
I was lookin' for that woman,
one ain't got no man

Well just look over yonder,
where we used to live
Well just look over yonder,
where we used to live
Don't you know it's killing me baby,
how we can't live here no more

Well it's goodbye baby,
If I'm never gonna see you no more
Well it's goodbye baby,
if I'm never gonna see you no more
I'm gonna tell everybody you've been,
still knockin' at my door

Blue On Black
(by Kenny Wayne Shepherd/Mark Selby/Tia Sillers), recording of 1997, from Trouble Is (Revolution/Warner Brothers 24689)
Night, falls,
I'm alone
Skin, yeah,
chilled me to the bone
You, turned and you ran,
oh, slipped from the edge of my hand

Blue on black,
tears on a river
Push on a shove,
it don't mean much
Whisper on a scream,
doesn't change a thing
Don't bring you back
Blue on black

Blind, oh,
now I see
truth, lies,
and in between
Wrong,
can't be undone
Slipped,
from the tip of your tongue

Blue on black,
tears on a river
Push on a shove,
it don't mean much
Whisper on a scream,
doesn't change a thing
Don't bring you back
Blue on black

Born With A Broken Heart
(by Kenny Wayne Shepherd/Danny Tate), recording of 1995, from Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621)
Up from the ashes, out of the flames
Keeps gettin' stronger, like a slow rollin' train
Watch it run
Oh, why do the good die young
Burnin' like a shootin' star
Born with a broken heart

Off in the distance, it was callin' my name
So I took me a ride, on that slow rollin' train
It still runs
But it seems that the good die young
Playin' on that sad guitar
Born with a broken heart
Burnin' like a shootin' star
Born with a broken heart

Seems it was over, before it begun
Killed by a bullet, from a six-string gun
Bang a drum
Oh, why do the good die young
Ridin' in a long black car
Born with a broken heart
Playin' on that sad guitar
Born with a broken heart
Burnin' like a shootin' star
Born with a broken heart

Deja Voodoo
(by Kenny Wayne Shepherd/Mark Selby/Tia Sillers), recording of 1995, from Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621)
Needles in my heart, spell on my mind,
your powerful potion gets me every time
I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night,
your kiss burns, through my dreams

(Chorus:)
Here it comes again,
I don't stand a chance
Soul possession,
got me in a trance
Pullin' me back to you
Deja voodoo

Fire in the dark, pounding in my brain,
driven by the chant calling out my name
I toss and turn, I can't sleep,
your kiss burns, through my dreams

Needles in my heart, spell on my mind,
your powerful potion gets me every time
I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night,
your kiss burns, through my dreams

(Chorus:)
Here it comes again,
I don't stand a chance
Soul possession,
got me in a trance
Pullin' me back to you

Everybody Gets The Blues
(by Angel Michael), recording of 1995, from Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621)
It don't matter if you're rich
It don't make no difference if you're poor
Simple things in life can make you mad to the core
It doesn't matter if you're young
Don't make no difference if you're old
You got to stand a little rain
Before you reach a pot of gold

Chorus:
Everybody gets the blues
Everybody got to cry
Take the good with the bad
Take the lows and the high
Well you work and you worry
Spend you life paying dues
Everybody has a hard time sometime
Everybody gets the blues

Ain't no different for a woman
Than it is for a man
Everybody goes dancing
Everybody pays the band
Everybody got to take
Everybody got to give
Everybody got to live

Everybody gets the blues
Everybody got to cry
Take the good with the bad
Take the lows and the high
Well you work and you worry
Spend you life paying dues
Everybody has a hard time sometime
Everybody gets the blues

Don't matter if you're fat
Don't matter if you're thin
Everybody got to lose
Everybody got to win
Don't matter if you're black
Don't matter if you're white
You know you got to get it wrong
To have a chance to make it right

Everybody gets the blues
Everybody got to cry
Take the good with the bad
Take the lows and the high
Well you work and you worry
Spend you life paying dues
Everybody has a hard time sometime
Everybody gets the blues

Everything Is Broken

Broken lines, broken strings 
Broken threads, broken springs 
Broken tools, broken heads 
People sleeping in broken beds 
Ain't no use jiving 
Ain't no use joking 
Everything is broken 

Broken bottles, broken plates 
Broken switches, broken gates 
Broken dishes, broken parts 
Streets are filled with broken hearts 
Broken words Never meant to be spoken 
Everything is broken 

Seem like every time you stop and turn around 
Something else just hit the ground 

Broken cutters, broken saws 
Broken buckles, broken laws 
Broken bodies, broken bones 
Broken voices on broken phones 
Take a deep breath 
Feel like you're chokin' 
Everything is broken 

Every time you leave and go off someplace 
Things fall to pieces in my face 

Broken hands on broken ploughs 
Broken treaties, broken vows 
Broken pipes, broken tools 
People bending broken rules 
Hound dog howling Bull frog croakin' 
Everything is broken

Every Time It Rains

Dust can't dry
Rust takes hold
See it in the sky
You wanna go
Every time it rains
Every time it rains
Clouds come

Standing in the doorway
You run, why you wanna run away
Sky falls, take it as a sign 
Who knows what I am gonna find 
Every time it rains
If the rivers rise 
You watch it all come down 
See it in your eyes
It doesn't make a sound
Every time it rains
Every time it rains
Clouds come

Standing in the doorway
You run, why you wanna run away
Sky falls, take it as a sign
Who knows what I am gonna find
Every time it rains
Every time it rains
Clouds come

Standing in the doorway
You run, why you wanna run away
Sky falls, take it as a sign
Who knows what I am gonna find
Every time it rains
Every time it rains
Dust can't dry
Rust takes hold
You see it in the sky
You wanna go
Every time it rains
Every time it rains
Clouds come

Standing in the doorway
You run, why you wanna run away
Sky falls, take it as a sign
Who knows what I am gonna find

Going Through Them Changes

Well, my mind's been
Going through them changes
I feel like I could go out
And commit a crime
Everytime you see me going somewhere
I feel like I'm going out of my mind
My babe, she left me just the other day
We was having so much fun
Yeah, my baby, she stepped out on me
And that's the reason we had to part
Yeah, my mind's been
Going through them changes
I think I'm going out of my mind
Everytime I see you going out somewhere
I feel like I could go out
And commit a crime
She had me runnin'
She had me hidin'
She had me runnin', runnin', runnin'
Hidin'...cryin'
She had me runnin'
She had me cryin'
She had me runnin', runnin', runnin'
runnin'...cryin'

Well, my mind's been
Going through them changes
I feel like I could go out
And commit a crime
Everytime I see you going somewhere

We were having so much fun
Yeah, my baby, she ran out on me

Chase The Rainbow

I was caught 
I was out of excuses 
But I was not 
Above relearning all the rules 
Yeah, I found out the hard way 
(There)Ain't not color to the blues 
(Now)you can have 
All the oil out in Arabia 
You can have All of the French girls out in France 
It won't alter the basic equation 
Ain't gonna change the circumstance 

Love, love, love, love, love 
Love is what you want 
Love, love, love, love, love, 
Until you've got it 

You never will be satisfied 
You're gonna chase the rainbow blind... 
If I'm wrong 
It ain't gonna hurt nobody 
But if I'm not 
(wrong)Nothin's ever gonna change 
Till we quit with all this messin' 
(round)And let love win the day 

Love, love, love, love, love, love 
Love is what you want 
Love, love, love, love, love, love, 
Until you've got it 
You never will be satisfied

I Don't Live Today

will I live tomorrow 
Well, I just can't say 
Will I live tomorrow 
Well, I just can't say 
But I know for sure 
I don't live today 

No sun coming through my windows 
Felt like I'm sitting at the bottom of a grave 
No sun coming through my windows 
Felt like I'm sitting at the bottom of a grave 

I wish you'd hurry up and rescue me 
So I can be on my miserable way 

I don't live today 
It's such a shame 
To waste your time away like this 

Will I live tomorrow 
Well, I just can't say 
Will I live tomorrow 
Well, I just can't say

I Found Love (When I Found You)

I found love when I found you 
When I look in your eyes, I know it's true 
My life was lonely, broken and blue 
Then I found love, when I found you 

Once in a lifetime, that's how it feels 
Something so good (so damn good) 
How can it be real 

Girl, when you touch me 
You touch me through and through 
I know I found love when I found you 

Girl, you've got all of me 
And I want you to know 
There's nothin' in this crazy ol' world 
Could make me wanna let you go 

'Cause I found love when I found you 
Every time I look into your eyes, 
I know it's true Girl, when you touch me 
You touch me through and through 
I know I found love, when I found you

I'm Leaving You (Commit A Crime)
(by Chester Burnett a.k.a. Howlin' Wolf), recording of 1995, from Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621)
I'm leaving you, woman
Before I commit a crime
I'm leaving you, woman
Before I commit a crime
You tried so hard to kill me
But baby, it was not my time

You put poison in my coffee
Instead of milk or cream
You put poison in my coffee
Instead of milk or cream
You're the evilest woman
I think I've ever seen

You mix my drink
With a can of Red Devil lye
You mix my drink
With a can of Red Devil lye
Then you sit right down
Watch me, hoping I might die

In 2 Deep

Everybody scatter
There's a madman on the run
Stumblin' through the wreckage
Like a blind man with a gun
Nowhere to hide
I'm in too deep
Can't see the light
'Cause I'm in too deep
Over my head 
Caught up in a hurricane
That never seems to end
Hard to know the devil
When he looks like your best friend
Nowere to hide
I'm in too deep
Can't see the light
'Cause I'm in too deep
Over my head
Oh...I should have known
But I can't let go
'Cause I'm in too deep
Over my head
Over my head
Oh...someone call somebody
The asylum's under siege
Inmates took a hostage
I'll be damned if it's not me
Nowhere to hide
'Cause I'm in too deep
Bury the light
'Cause I'm in too deep
Can't see the light
In too deep
Bury the light
I'm in too deep
I'm over my head
Over my head
Over my head

It was a moonless night
It was an empty sky
It was a bad excuse
I was the only fool in sight
It was a crazy thought
A madman's walk
It was
 
It was a moonless night
It was an empty sky
It was a bad excuse
I was the only fool in sight
It was a crazy thought
A madman's walk
It was

I had a wandering eye
She had a better time
It was a twisted thought
A black cat came to mind
She was a crazy thought
A madman's walk
She was

She was a long way home
Walking broken bones
It was wrong or right
How deep that knife could go
It was a crazy thought
A madman's walk it was
It was a crazy thought
A madman's walk it was
She was the hangman's noose
I was the fool, I was
Oh, I was
Yeah baby...I was

King's Highway

Walkin' down King's Highway 
With a brown paper bag in my hand 
Nothin' else but the clothes I got on 
But I ain't lookin' book I ain't lookin' back 

Blame it on the midnight girl 
And that wicked spell she cast 
She pulled me in with them liquid eyes 
Now I ain't looking back I ain't looking back 

Oh what a tangled web she weaves I was losing my mind 
Starin' down the barrel of a gun 
It's just a matter of time 

Walkin' down King's Highway 
Black cat crossin' my path 
I know that's her trying to make me stay 
But, I ain't looking back I ain't looking back 

King's Highway 
I got to travel that King's Highway

Last Goodbye

Before your rusted chains
Busted walls, barbed wire cage
Tried to hold me down
Time was just a fist of change
Tossed in the water just in case
You ever came around
I could lose myself
I could curse like hell
But I've lost the will to even try
If you ever doubt
Listen to the sound...no lies
This is my last goodbye
Pardon me if I appear
To see beyond the now and here
Try to save myself
I'm not the kind to pin the blame
But I can't take more on the same
Living on your shelf
I could lose myself
I could curse like hell
But I've lost the will to even try
If you ever doubt
Listen to the sound...no lies
This is my last goodbye
Door closes, another one opens
I feel the cold wind blowin'
Over me
Long gone but not forgotten
I might be lost
I might be finally free
Long before your rusted chains
Busted walls, barbed wire cage
Tried to hold me down
Time was just a fist of change 
Tossed in the water just in case
You ever came around
I could lose myself
I could curse like hell
But I've lost the will to even try
If you ever doubt
Listen to the sound...no lies
This is my last goodbye
This is my last goodbye

(Let Me Up) I've Had Enough
(by Kenny Wayne Shepherd/Joe Nadeau/Mark Selby), recording of 1995, from Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621)
When I fell for you, baby,
I really met my match
You use me, abuse me,
but I keep comin' back
Let me up, baby, I've had enough

It never seems to matter,
what we fight about
I'm the one who winds up,
down for the count
Let me up, baby, I've had enough

(Chorus:)
I love ya, I want ya,
just like I did before
I need ya, but if I leave ya,
it's 'cause I just can't take no more

Somehow you remember,
every little thing that I've done
So baby, I surrender,
I've lost and you have won
Let me up, baby, I've had enough

I love ya, I want ya,
just like I did before
I need ya, but if I leave ya,
it's 'cause I just can't take no more

Live On

Hello my friend
Can't sleep again
Got too much on my mind
It's half past 3 
You're calling me
Just to make everything alright
Can't see the light
Heat of the night
Tired of feeling so wrong
Well, I've been there
And it's not fair
But you just gotta live...live on

Yeah, you gotta live on
Another day
Well, your luck is bound to change
It might be cold out
But you just hold out
The sun is gonna shine your way
I know it's true
I'm living proof
The road is hand and long
If I could find a way
I'd take your place
But, you just gotta live on
Oh, live on
You gotta live on
Oh, another day
Yeah, your luck is bound to change
It might be cold out
But you just hold out
The sun is gonna shine your way
I know it's true

But, you just gotta live on
Oh, live on...yeah, you gotta live on

You can keep whatever you want baby 
Take whatever you need 
Sweep up the pieces of this broken love

Don't ask why this stone keeps rollin'

Believe whatever you wanna believe 
Deep in my heart I've loved you 
But my heart's like a tumbleweed

Never wanted to desert you 
But that restless wind starts blowin'

Losing Kind

Just a stepping-stone
I'm just another old dirt road
I'm just another old dirt road
Yes, you walk on
It happens every time
Feels like I'm losing my mind
Just like a dirty game of eight ball
Set up and framed taking the fall
I've been taking the fall
For so long
You know it happens every time
Feel like I'm losing my mind
So close, almost 
Ain't it my turn to win
I'd take, one break
Would that be such a sin
Would that be such a sin
So close, almost
Ain't it my turn to win 
I'd take, one break
Would that be such a sin
I could make the bitter end
Be like a king snake shedding his skin
I would shed my skin
And move on
But it happens every time
Feels like I'm losing my mind
I said it happens every time
Feels like I'm losing my mind
Lord, it happens every time
Feels like I'm losing my mind

Never Mind

Top of the world, oughta feel better
Bottom sure come at you a whole lot faster 
Can you keep a secret I'll tell you
Still didn't get the answers where I'm standing
'Cause I get a little shook sometimes
And I thought maybe you could tell me why
Never mind

So long torn in all directions
Tossed and turned is how I am feeling
Tell you everything
All about what I've been dreamin'
Let go, domino, fall down, however I'm leavin'
And I get a little shook sometimes
And I thought maybe you could tell me why
Oh, it's alright baby...never mind

Top of the world, it used to look better
Down low ain't no vertigo spin me 'round faster
'Cause I just get a little shook sometimes
And I thought maybe you could tell me why
Oh that's alright baby

Nothing To Do With Love

God we must be crazy 
The whole world's been falling apart 
I've never seen such suffering 
Or so many broken hearts 

And how people can hurt each other 
Lord I swear by the stars above 
Ain't got nothing to do with love 
Ain't got nothing to do with love 

You say you want my money 
You wanna buy you a brand new car 
You say you love me honey 
I ain't seen to proof so far 
'Cause the way you've been treaing me darling 
Doin' things I never heard of 
It ain't got nothing to do with love 
It ain't got nothing to do with love 

God we must be crazy 
The whole world's been falling apart 
I ain't never seen so much misery 
Or so many broken hearts 

How people can kill each other 
In the name of the Lord above 
It ain't got nothing to do with love 
Nothing to do with love 
Nothing to do with love...

Stick by me and I'll be your guiding hand
Don't ask me what I think of you

One Foot On The Path
(by Kenny Wayne Shepherd/Mark Selby), recording of 1995, from Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621)
You say, "Come over baby, come talk to me"
Then you drive me so crazy,
I can't hardly see
If this keeps goin' on,
I might just leave and not come back
I got one foot in your doorway,
I got one foot on the path

Well you beg me to stay,
then you order me to go
All this up and down,
is wear and tear on my soul
I'm wonderin' if our future,
is gonna look just like our past
I got one foot in your doorway,
I got one foot on the path

Now I love you, baby,
don't get me wrong
But this heart of mine,
may not be that strong
You got me on your line,
reel me in or throw me back
I got one foot in your doorway,
I got on foot on the path

You'd best thing about it, baby,
but don't take too long
If we can't get it right,
I'll just be movin' on
I can't wait forever,
for us to get this thing on track
I got one foot in your doorway, baby,
I got on foot on the path

Riverside
(by Kevin Bowe), recording of 1995, from Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621)
Seen her get up, seen her go down,
down to the riverside
Seen her jump into the river and drown,
down to the riverside
People do just what they will,
don't matter to the river, it's running still

Sun come up, sun go down,
down to the riverside
Sun jump into the river and drown,
down to the riverside
Every day just like the last,
we sit and watch the water pass

Came a day the built a bridge,
down to the riverside
Over the way, on top of the ridge,
down to the riverside
Built a bridge for people to cross,
but every other day, someone jumping off

You might think some boys they got it made,
down to the riverside
They got the money and the women and a place in the shade,
down to the riverside
That ain't no way to ease the pain,
can't listen to the river when it calls your name

Shotgun

I ain't no boy no more
Now, I'm a man baby

Here I am standin' at your door

I'd go to work in the morning
Your other man come creeping around 
I'd go to work in the morning
Saw another man come creeping around
'Til I came home with a shotgun, baby
He was dead before he hit the ground

I shot him down...oh, I shot him down

Oh, I did my time baby
And I still want you here with me
Well...I served my time baby
But with you I will never be free
A broken man all alone
Is what I ain't never gonna be

I ain't afraid of no man
Whiskey and wine are my only friends
Yes, I ain't afriad of no man
Still got a shotgun in my hands 
But I'm afriad to come inside

Somehow, Somewhere, Someway

Girl, I see you in my dreams 
It happens every day and night now 
Got me going to extremes 
Don't seem to care what's wrong or right now 

Make ya mine someday 
Somehow, somewhere, someway 

You say I'm really not your kind 
Guess I look a little rough now 
If I could give you everything, girl, 
Would it ever be enough now 

You'll be mine someday 
Somehow, somewhere, someway 

Makes me wonder what's goin' on 
When the night rolls in 
Something happens that feels so strong 
And I just can't pretend 
Don't you wonder what's goin' on 
When the night rolls in 
Something happens that feels strong 
And it'll happen again 
So you can turn and walk away 
But I know you would regret it 
If I ever had my way 
Do you think you could forget it 

Gonna happen someday 
Somehow, somewhere, someway 
You'll be mine somday

(by Kenny Wayne Shepherd/Mark Selby/Tia Sillers), recording of 1997, from Trouble Is (Revolution/Warner Brothers 24689)
Walkin' down,
the king's highway
A paper bag in my hand,
nothin' else but my clothes I got on
But I ain't a lookin' back,
I ain't a lookin' back

I blame it on that midnight girl,
a wicked spell she casts
She pulled me in with her lip but I,
but I ain't a lookin' back
I ain't a lookin' back

Oh what a tangle,
when she weeps
I was a losin' my mind,
starin' down the barrel of a gun
It's just a matter of time
Yeah

True Lies
(by Kenny Wayne Shepherd/Danny Tate), recording of 1997, from Trouble Is (Revolution/Warner Brothers 24689)
Where do you go after midnight,
when all the doors should be closed
Your alibis just donít sound right,
I asked but nobody knows
Then you look me in the eyes,
and make it sound so very nice
With your true lies

Someoneís been sleepiní in my bed,
this room donít smell like you and me
Someoneís been sneakiní out the window,
do you think Iím too blind too see
When you look me in the eyes,
and make it sound so very nice
With your true lies,
it was a clever disguise
But, girl Iím gettiní wise,
to your true lies

Well, you been doiní this so long now,
youíre thinkiní itís the truth
I guess it donít seem so wrong if it,
ainít beiní done to you
Gotta lot to learn, baby,
you canít keep it down
When the word gets in the wind,
then itís bound to blow back around

Girl, can you give me a reason,
I bet you donít know even know why
ĎCause I canít figure out what youíre thinkiní,
or what is your tiyní to justify
When you look me in the eyes,
and make it sound so very nice
With your true lies,
it was a clever disguise
But, girl Iím gettiní wise,
to your true lies
Yeah, you can laugh, you can cry,
but, girl, I just canít buy,
your true, true lies

What's Goin' Down
(by Kenny Wayne Shepherd/Joe Nadeau), recording of 1995, from Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621)
Time's a wastin' now
And I ain't got no more time to play
Everything is changin' now
Pretty soon it's all gone away

Can we make the changes now
You know there's no other way
Now's the time, the time is now
It's not the why, it's just the how

(Chorus:)
Have you looked around my friend
And really seen what's goin' down
Take a look into the sky
And lay your hand upon the ground
It is of you good neighbor
I ask a lifelong favor
It is my faith I put in you

Can we make the changes now
You know there's no other way
Now's the time, the time is now
It's not the why, it's just the how

(Chorus:)
Have you looked around my friend
And really seen what's goin' down
Take a look into the sky
And lay your hand upon the ground
It is of you good neighbor
I ask a lifelong favor
It is my faith I put in you

Where was I

Staring out the window
Watching the night turn into day
It's 4 in the morning 
I've got so many things to say
I've been out here in the darkness 
With shadows all around
Where was I before you came around
Standing in a phone booth
Lord I'm watching the rain fall down
Don't know where I'm going
Don't even know the name of this town
I've been stranded in the spotlight
Like a king wtithout a crown
Where was I before you came around
I was lonely, I was on my own
I was drifting, no place to call home
Now I'm stronger
Where would I be
Without you lovin' me
I was lonely, on my own
I was drifting, no place to call home
Now I am stronger, where would I be
Without you lovin' me
Oh, staring out the window
I've heard you say it's gonna be alright
These words from you girl
I can make it through another night
I need someone to believe in 
I was lost I was found
You give me someone to believe in
Where was I before you came around
You give me someone to believe in
Where was I before you came around

Wild Love

Lightning in a bottle
Held it in my hand
Pushing down the throttle
I drink and try again
Baby I'm addicted
I just can't get enough
Build a wall around me
I will rise above
No one makes me feel the way
Feel the way you do
No one else could make me say
Say these things to you
I feel something kind of dangerous
I wish I knew what it
Babe let's get together
Get together for some
Wild love
Wild love

Going off the deep end
You got me hypnotized
First you took my sanity
Now you want my pride
Girl I want to see you
See you in the flesh
I'm out her on a wire
And they're cutting down the nets
No one makes me feel the way
Feel the way you do
No one else could make me say
Say these things to you
I feel something kind of dangerous
I wish I knew what it was
Babe let's get together
Get together for some 
Wild love
Wild love

Oh, I said it don't take long
But I just can't wait
Until the feeling's gone
Oh...yeah
I don't mean to scare you baby
Or try to push you away
Something's got a hold on me
And it's going all the way
No one makes me feel the way
Feel the way you do
No one else could make me say
Say these things to you
I feel something kind of dangerous
I wish I knew what it was
Babe let's get together
Get together for some
Wild love
Wild love

You Should Know Better

Who's that sneaking
Around behind my back door
Is that you coming back
To do what you did before
One wrong move will surely
Get you caught in the act
That's a fact

You should know better
You should know better than that
You come home on that stuff
Does he know where you've been
Do you tell him you've been working
Or just hanging out with your friends
Baby one wrong friend will surely
Get you caught in the act
That's a fact

You should know better
You should know better than that 
You should know better than that
You should know better

When you gonna learn, pretty baby
When you gonna learn
That it all comes back
You get burned when you play with fire
And you should know better than that

Oh yeah, somebody whispers something
Someone else turns it around 
Pretty soon there's a rumour flying
It's getting all over the town
It's a sticky little situation
You've been putting me in
'Cause I like what you do
I just know how the story ends
One wrong move
Gets you caught in the act, that's a fact

You should know better
You should know better than that
You should know better
You should know better
