Eric Clapton I Ain't Gonna Stand For It Lyrics

Last updated: 04/08/2013 04:10:54 PM

I don't want to believe what they're telling me;
Somebody's been picking in my cherry tree.
I don't want to mistrust somebody by mistake.
Somebody's been digging 'round in my cake.

[Chorus:]
And I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby, nah nah.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby, nah nah, nah nah.

I don't want to believe what somebody said;
Somebody said somebody's shoe was under my bed.
I don't want to cause nobody no bodily harm.
Somebody's been rubbing on my good luck charm.

[Chorus]

Oh, my my my my my my.
Oh, my my my my my my.
Oh, my my my my my my.
Oh, my my my my my my.

[Chorus 2x]

A Forgotten Gem | Reviewer: Mike Goldthwaite | 4/8/13

I never understood why this Clapton cover never made it to the tops in the charts. Not only is it true in spirit to its original writer/performer, Stevie Wonder, but Clapton's non-stop filler lics are Clapton at his very best, and there isn't even an individual solo. The lics in this song are quintessentially Clapton, and in my opinion, legendary.

Someday, this song will get the attention it deserves. Perhaps if Eric brought it back, a little faster on the tempo to allow for a solo.... But I wouldn't him to leave out the filler lics.
