You Better You Bet Lyrics - The Who

Review The Song (7)



You better you better you bet. oh
You better you better you bet. oh w
You better you better you bet.
You better you better you bet.


I call you on the telephone
My voice too rough with cigarettes.
I sometimes feel I should just go home
but I'm dealing with a memory that never forgets

I love to hear you say my name
especially when you say yes
I got your body right now on my mind
but I drunk myself blind to the sound of old T-Rex, Mmmmm
To the sound of old T-Rex
oh, and Who's Next

When I say I love you you say you better
You better you better you bet
sponsored links
When I say I need you you say you better
You better you better you bet
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you, cut you like a knife

I want those feeble minded axes overthrown
I'm not into your passport picture, I just like your nose
You welcome me with open arms and open legs
I know only fools have needs, but this one never pegs

I don't really mind how much you love me
Ooh, a little is alright
When you say
come over and spend the night
Tonight
Tonight

When I say I love you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you, cut you like a knife

I lay on the bed with you
We could make some book of records
Your dog keeps licking my nose
And chewing up all those letters
Saying "you better"

You better bet your life

You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me back into line now
You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me back into line now.

(Guitar Solo)

I showed up late one night
with a neon light for a visa
But knowing I'm so eager to fight
can't make letting me in any easier

I know I been wearing crazy clothes
and I look pretty crappy sometimes
But my body feels so good
and I still sing a razor line every time.

And when it comes to all night living
I know what I'm giving
I've got it all down to a tee
And it's free.

When I say I love you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I love you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you scream you better, Ooooo!
You better you better you bet
When I say I love you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I love you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you scream you better
You better you better you bet

You better bet your life
Or love will cut you, just like a knife


You better bet your life
Or love will cut you, just like a knife

Well written song about a crazy part of some-most men’s lives. | Reviewer: Mark | 5/9/13

I used to listen to this song over and over again in my late teens really not knowing the words just the music and the great piano licks in the background. I know I am getting old when the music I like is on the oldies radio station. After looking up the lyrics on the internet it’s shows a part of life that almost every man in one way or another abused our bodies and our minds. Most of use had gone through that faze. Gentlemen, we all have to live it in one way or another in order to move on to a more mature part of our lives. If some men don’t than they are condemned to repeat it over and over again. Pete, you laid out the words that most young men are thinking.
P.S. I bet T-Rex go more marketing from this song.

Denial? Or something a little richer in experience? | Reviewer: Ben Culture | 4/12/13

It's easy to dismiss this song as an exercise in denial -- denial of alcoholism or drug abuse -- with lyrics that describe a man who only shows up late at night, drunk, "so eager to fight [it] can't make letting me in any easier." And then, there's the ultimate verse of denial:
"I know I been wearing crazy clothes / and I look pretty crappy sometimes / But my body feels so good / and I still sing a razor line every time".
That lyric just begs for a challenge. REALLY, Pete? Your body feels so good, you can't stare into the mirror long enough to shave? And we're to take your word for it that your singing is better than ever, when you don't even sing any leads on the entire Face Dances album, much less this song?
It's a matter of record that Pete Townshend went through his "bad boy" phase later in life than most of his peers, late 70s and early 80s. But count on a guy like Townshend to get a hit song out of it!

always great | Reviewer: mond | 9/6/07

i'm quite young and have seen the who (the rest of them) twice within the last year. a festival gig and a concert; each was great.

these lyrics are extremly honest and not that romantiv, therefore i like them so much.
i think lots of men can identify thereselves in that text (and some women either :-D)

Very, very cool track | Reviewer: Elvis | 6/13/07

It's more like an operapiece. There's no doubt that this is from the hand of Pete Townsend. Still great though, sometimes I feel a little sad that I was too young to witness the who on stage in their early days in the sixties and seventies

Fab | Reviewer: Hezza | 8/30/06

I'm a girl anf love this song!!!!

FABULOUS!!!!

You better bet your life | Reviewer: Gerri | 2/10/06

music is great.
lyrics are awesome.
but Roger could of sang it with a little more feeling.
silly and romantic none the less.

Testosterone | Reviewer: Luke | 7/26/05

''You welcome me with open arms and open legs''

' I don't really care how much you love me, oooh little is alright when you say ''Come over and spend the night tonight. '' '

Not The most idealistic portrayal of those of us of the Penis- owning persuasion, but honest as hell!

Thanks lads for saying what we all know to be true but dare not say.
