Too Tough Lyrics

by Rolling Stones

If you want to wreck my life go ahead my love
Tried it once with poison, tried it once with drugs
My circulation's running dry it's you that drank me up
You screwed me down with kindness suffocating love

When it comes to fighting trying to play it rough
I will take you twenty rounds I'm just too tough, too tough
Too tough, too tough

Saw you on TV last night in a rerun soap
You were young and beautiful already without hope
But I don't think you ever knew what you've bitten off
But in the end, you spat me out, you could not chew me up

Too tough, too tough, too tough, too tough
When it comes to fighting trying to play it rough
I will take you twenty rounds I'm just too tough, too tough

I was married yesterday to a teenage bride
You said it's only physical but I love her deep inside
I still see you in my dreams with a kitchen knife
With it poised above your head now who you gonna slice?

When it comes to fighting trying to play it rough
I will take you twenty rounds I'm just too tough, too tough
Too tough, too tough

I don't think you'll ever know what you've bitten off
But in the end you spat me out, you could not chew me up

I was too tough
I was too tough
I was too tough
