Rafferty, Gerry - Wrong Thinking Lyrics




Is this a state that you can't control
Or don't you care who you're talking to
Each time when things get out of hand
Why it's the same thing you always do
You start to point out other people's mistakes
Sometimes you even show contempt
How come the way you exclude yourself
Can't you see that you're not exempt?

Wrong thinking gets the better of you
It only takes a moment or two
Comes stealin' like a thief in the night
Changes every little thing in sight
Wrong thinking gets the better of you.

Well it's the same old thing that happens
Every time you react that way
Tomorrow you'll want to forget
Everything you said today
But everytime something reminds you
You play the same old game inside
Any excuse in the book will do
Everything can be justified.

Wrong thinking gets the better of you
It only takes a moment or two
Comes stealin' like a thief in the night
Changes every little thing in sight
Wrong thinking gets the better of you
Better of you. Gets the better of you.

    Gerry Rafferty would layer his voice on many refrains. This gave a kind of droning effect like pipes...great.

    @sosmansal - Osman, Very sorry, once the videos are uploaded, the mp3's get deleted from my files. I believe in sharing music but as an artist myself there must be correct channels to go through for legitimate downloads. Hope you will still come here to play the song in the meantime. Best wishes, Steve

  23. Stage Parades

    Rest In Peace Gerry, you will always be special

  24. Bernadette Emett

    . All the time those radio stations played " BAKER STREET" to death they could have been pointing out the versatility and immense talent of Gerry's other wonderful compositions. The man IS A GENIUS.

    Well it's the same old thing that happens
    Every time you react that way
    Tomorrow you'll want to forget
    Everything you said today
    But every time something reminds you
    You play the same old game inside
    Any excuse in the book will do
    Everything can be justified.

    Wrong thinking gets the better of you
    It only takes a moment or two
    Comes stealin' like a thief in the night
    Changes every little thing in sight
    Wrong thinking gets the better of you
    Better of you. Gets the better of you.
