Taking Notes and Stealing Quotes on this song

Cover-version


 

Words by
Keith Reid

Iíve been body swerved, close observed
Down the well, kiss and tell
Iíve been lost aní found, underground
Good as gold, overload

Iíve been crazy glued, baby blued
Off the wall, too close to call
Iíve been Chinese rocks
Iíve been shadow boxed

Iíve been squeezed aní stroked, okee-doked
Gone aní went, heaven sent
Iíve been fluffed aní fussed, cuffed aní cussed
Show of hands, shadow lands

Iíve been down to the wire, house on fire
Reconditioned, under suspicion
Iíve been Chinese rocks
Iíve been shadow boxed

Iíve been instant karma, Dalai Lama
Living proof, aní cosmic truth
Iíve been powder kegged, heavy lead
Out of bounds, whatís that sound

Iíve been down to the wire, house on fire
Reconditioned, under suspicion
Iíve been lost aní found, underground
Good as gold, overload

Iíve been crazy glued, baby blued
Off the wall, too close to call
Iíve been Chinese rocks
Iíve been shadow boxed
