10cc - Don't Ask Lyrics




You ask me what's it like now
I've got no woman - don't ask
You ask me how's it feel to be alone
You've got no one - don't ask
I'll tell you what's the story
Who's the judge and who's the jury - the past

Don't ask me what it's like to be alone at night
I hear a tapping on the wall
(I hear you knocking but ya)
I calm myself by leaving on the bathroom light
I know there's no one out there
But that don't really help at all

So tell me what's it like now
You got nobody - don't ask

Who looks after your health
I do it myself
How do you survive
I'm staying alive
Who looks after your home
I do it on my own
And how do you sleep
I sleep alone

Nobody told me that I had to live this way
Yea I could really have a ball
(you keep a knocking but ya)
But if I can't have you I'd rather stay this way
And live in hope that maybe
One day you'll take the time to call

So tell me what's it like now
You've got no woman - don't ask

Who looks after your health
I do it myself
How do you survive
I'm staying alive
Who looks after your home
I do it on my own
And how do you sleep
I sleep alone

I'll tell you what it's like now
I got no woman - don't ask

    Great bassplaying by Graham.

  2. 米田さとし

    Nice video edition!

    "5CC" had become truly a fabulous duo by Ten Out Of 10 album.
    Look Here? and this…they're my most favorite 10CC albums. They're amazing! Though I don't like reggae-feeling of Bloody Tourists album, I feel very natural the feeling of Don't Ask song is. But……I've heard these two tremendous records had ended in commercial failure. Why?

    Lasse L

    The 80' s happened...it was a completely different scene...Just listen to DuranDurans first album or Speak & Spell by Depeche Mode

    米田さとし

    @Lasse L Definitely the early 80's is the age of "techno-pop". Even Roxy Music was influenced by the currency with Fresh And Blood album. But 10CC wasn't.

    DamGreek

    Eric Stewart spent most of 1979 recovering from a car crash, with vision and hearing loss. So the albums after this point tended to be a bit more mellow, and while he was recovering, as the others say, the music scene changed completely and 10cc never caught up. People were into the new wave/techno stuff at the time, and 10cc was completely out of sync. But at the same time some of the techno music doesn't hold up today and both LOOK HEAR and TEN OUT OF 10 hold up much better as good "pop" albums, and even though LOOK HEAR is considered by many 10cc fans to be their worst album, many have found that TEN OUT OF 10 is quite good. There was a UK Version in 1981, and then after removing some songs and adding some new ones was finally released in the USA in 1982. You can find ALL of the tracks from both versions on Japanese issues on CD.

  3. Overtime Freak

    Great bass line. Love this record, very underrated. Fantastic songs and brilliant composers. Great cover Artwork, guitar solo is very good

  4. David Mann

    My Fav.

  5. Eoghan Lyng

    Gouldman's first marriage ended in divorce, so this is him singing from the gut.

  6. Miranda

    Someone could make a really good cover of this

  7. nernenu

    Just realized: I already know all the words.

  8. jackie bell

    Love the idea with the speech bubbles.
    Yet another great video; Thanks for this.
