DONíT IT BRING YOU DOWN

THEREíS A LITTLE DIVE DOWN ON MAIN STREET,

WHERE YOU CAN KILL SOME TIME.

NUMB THE FEELING, SLOW THE HEALING,

LEAVE THE PAIN BEHIND.

 

DONíT IT PLEASE YOU,

DONíT IT FREE YOU,

DONíT IT BRING YOU DOWN.

 

ALL THESE YEARS OF WORKING HARD,

YOU NEVER MISSED A DAY.

THEY CUT YOU LOOSE ONE AFTERNOON,

YOUR PENSION A MONTH AWAY.

 

DONíT THEY PLEASE YOU,

DONíT THEY GRIEVE YOU,

DONíT THEY BRING YOU DOWN.

 

VOTE FOR ME THE STRANGER SAYS,

IíLL CHANGE THINGS FOR THE BEST.

HE FILLS YOUR EARS WITH EMPTY WORDS,

AND LEAVES YOU WITH REGRETS.

 

DONíT HE PLEASE YOU,

DONíT HE NEED YOU,

DONíT HE BRING YOU DOWN.

 

SISTER ANN WILL COMFORT YOU,

ON HER CABLE T.V. SHOW.

TAKE YOUR MONEY GRACIOUSLY,

AND DANCE UPON YOUR SOUL.

 

DONíT SHE PLEASE YOU,

DONíT SHE SQUEEZE YOU,

DONíT SHE BRING YOU DOWN.
