I Can't Stand It Lyrics

by Velvet Underground

Before being a man
Livin' in a garbage pail
My landlady called me up
She tried to hit me with a mop

I can't stand it anymore more, more
I can't stand it anymore more, more
I can't stand it anymore more, more

But if Shelly she would just come back
It'll be alright
But if Shelly she would just come back
It'll be alright

I live with thirteen dead cats
A purple who hears spats
They're all livin' out in a hall
And I can't stand it anymore

I can't stand it anymore more, more
I can't stand it anymore more, oh
I can't stand it anymore more, more

But if Shelly she would just come back
It'll be alright
But if Shelly she would just come back
It'll be alright

Before being a man
Livin' in a garbage pail
My lady call me up
She tried to hit me with a mop

I can't stand it anymore more, more
Oh I can't stand it anymore more, more
I can't stand it anymore more, more

But if Shelly she would just come back
It'd be alright
But if Shelly she would just come back
It'd be alright
Be alright, be alright, be alright, oh look
