I've been mixed up, cut up
So sit down and shut up
'Cause I'm a hard man
I was hung up, strung out
But I can't take no more junk
Even if you can

It will beat ya, cheat ya
Deceit ya, defeat ya

No rocker, bopper
Show stealin' teeny bopper
Gonna get a thing from him
No fat, black
Back scratchin' pussy cat
Gonna get her claws on him

Well, they got a scheme to sell you kids
The silver screens and glossy magazines
And I'm a hard man

Better hold back, good times
Strung out, hung up
Strong out, picked on
Ripped off, kicked out
Spit on, set up, ripped off
Locked up, sent down
Maybe you're as hard as I am

No rocker, bopper
Show stealin' teeny bopper
Gonna get a thing from me
No fat, black
Back scratchin' pussy cat
Gonna get her claws on me

Just blow me away

Songwriters
GORHAM, WILLIAM SCOTT
