Yo La Tengo Mr. Tough Lyrics

Last updated: 09/03/2007 11:00:00 AM

Hey Mr. Tough,
Don't you think we've suffered enough?
Why don't you meet me on the dance floor
When it's time to talk tough?

And if you need to tell me something once
You won't have to say it twice
And if you ask for a nickel,
I'm gonna hand you a dime

And we'll forget about our problems if only for a little while
We'll leave our worries in the corner, leave them in a great big pile
Pretend everything can be alright.

Hey Mrs. Blue,
Time to think of something new
Please pause from spinning those hips
To the old soft shoe
And if you wanna last the rest of the night
There's nothing better I have to do
And if I tell you something you won't have to ask if it's true

And we'll forget about our problems if only for a little while
We'll leave our worries in the corner, leave them in a heaping pile
Pretend everything can be alright.

Alone and uptight on Saturday night
And in my room
I'm hiding at a crowded party
The record's playing for just me and you.
