MC5 - Baby Won't Ya Lyrics

Oh, ah
Come on
It's alright, now, hey, hey, hey

I sat up here in my window
Lookin' down on the street
Strychnine poison woman
Man, don't you look so sweet?

Woo, I said come on up and see me sometime
I'm just a drunken sailor but I'm feeling so fine
I've been out sailin' on the seven seas
Baby, won't ya give it to me?

Baby won't ya drive me mad?
Baby don't ya let me feel bad
Baby don't ya leave me alone
Baby won't ya carry me home?
Baby won't ya jump and shout?
You know what I'm talking about
Baby won't ya drive me wild?
Baby let me see you smile
Whoa, yeah, yeah
It's alright, now
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Oh, now

I see all the sickly, the sultry swingers
Standing on the ballroom floor
Sliding and gliding as she past by my window
She was a female mercenary coming home from the war
The ultimate inflection on the word perfection
I thought I'd drop by and say hi
Sweetly, serenely she showed me her gun
Baby let's go get high

Baby won't ya drive me wild?
Baby let me see you smile
Baby won't ya please come here?
Baby don't ya have no fear
Baby won't ya scratch my back?
Baby don't ya leave me mad
Baby won't ya drive me mad?
Baby don't ya let me be mad
Oh, yeah
Ooh, come on
Yeah, yeah, whoa

Whoa, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Uh-huh, whoa, come on now, yooh-hoo

I sat down to the matters at hand
Trying to find a way to beat the heat
Outside my window was a bunch of tipsy gypsies
Dancin' up and down the street
The lovely señorita took me by my hand
She said, "Oh, baby won't you be my man?"
I'll get yours and, uh, you'll get mine
Baby let's have a good time

Baby won't ya drive me mad?
Baby don't ya let me feel bad
Baby don't ya leave me alone
Baby won't ya carry me home?
Baby won't ya jump and shout?
You know what I'm talking about
Baby won't ya drive me wild?
Baby let me see you smile

Baby won't you please come here?
Baby don't you have no fear?
Baby let me hold your hand
Baby let me be your man
Baby won't you scratch my back?
Baby don't you leave me mad
Baby won't you please be true?
Baby let's wait for you

Baby won't you drive me mad?
Baby won't you let me be bad?
Baby don't you leave me alone
Baby won't you carry me home?
Baby won't you jump and shout?
You know what I'm talking about
Baby won't you drive me wild?
Baby let me see you smile...

    City Slang Sonics Rendezvous Band,Yes I know Sonic changed his lyrics on a daily basis My best efforts at doing City Slang is playing it at 33 rpm still can;t make it out.

    Guillaume Daguet

    City Slang

    (it’s) Got dirt in my hand
    Part of the land
    City slang communication
    Know downtown street’s
    They measure the beat
    To understand situation
    Taste of the tongue
    (there) no place to run
    And all chance to be taken
    Screaming by, angels should fly
    My heart is open like a nation

    I got nothing to kick out at night
    Just see that, Hey! That’s allright
    Mamma crying sister thinking
    Yeah I know it’s just c c c c c c c city slang

    See I get through, going (go out?) to blue
    Time is kicking, so get it in
    Talking to B, sist coming teen
    Say “kaka luni” I think I am
    Turn on the life, she’sall mine
    Got the butchers in American
    Tick, insane, they’re coming for me
    Then I wait, I’m alone again

    When you feel hell above you
    Pack weeds and be left out
    And no reason to call any name
    When you know it’s just ccccccc city slang

    See it’s allright
    Time in your life
    ‘Cause I refusal to take you
    Messiah is kind, treasure to find
    Gonna be civil who shake you
    And all of the low there’s no echo
    This guy fellow gonna follow me
    Satan is take, inside of a break
    C’mon baby let us premiere in

    Keep a talkin’ this city scream
    Well you know allright you know what I mean
    Detroit Chicago now NewYork to LA
    They all been talkin about ccccccccc city slang

  25. Tony Turner
