  • Hey look yonder
    What's that I see
    Well that old bogus, honey
    Comin' after me

    I goin' told you
    Was out of town
    I wonder how she knowed
    I was hangin' around

    Say, listen babe
    Don't go wastin' your time
    You keep comin' 'round
    You'll hear the same old line

    You got a thousand boys
    You say you need 'em
    You take what's good for you
    And I'll take my freedom

    'Cause lately it's been so hard
    To make ends meet
    And honey, you're headin' down a
    One way street
    And I gotta go the other way
    (Heh, heh, heh)

    I thought I knew her
    My cagey lady
    How come my sunshine
    Was so damn shady
    She'll say she love to talk
    A conversation
    But I'm the one
    Who makes my situation

    This one way city
    That I thought I knew
    It's such a pity, honey
    That's it for you
    'Cause lately it's been so hard
    To make ends meet
    And honey, you're headin' down a
    One way street
    And I gotta go the other way

    There's nothing over here
    I never showed you
    I made it pretty clear
    I'm glad to know you

    You know your brother Spike
    He's on the level
    But you always lookin'
    Like you're mad at the devil

    Don't say I cop a 'tude
    It's all forgotten
    It's just you're much too rude
    Your fruits are rotten

    You know I work so hard to keep it alive
    Now all I hear from you
    Is nothing but jive

    Lately it's been so hard
    Now to make ends meet
    And honey, you're headin' down a
    One way street
    And I'm goin' on the other way
    Yes I do!

    And lately it's been so hard
    To make ends meet
    And honey, you're headin' down a
    One way street
    And I really been feelin'
    Like I could be movin' on

    You're headin' down a one way street
    You're foolin' everybody you meet
    I said, you're headin' down a one way street
    You're foolin' everybody but me
    I said, you're headin' down a one way street
    You're foolin' everybody you meet
    I said, you're headin' down a one way street
    You're foolin' everybody but me...
    You got to get yourself back on your feet
