Huey Lewis & The News – But It's Alright lyrics

You don't know how I feel
You never know how I feel
When I needed you to come around
You always try to put me down

Well, I know girl, believe me when I say
That you are someday gonna pay

Girl, but it's alright, alright girl
You can hurt me but it's alright

Hey, now one day you'll see
You'll never find a guy like me
Who'll love you right, both day and night
You never have to worry 'cause it's alright

Oh, but I'm tellin' you girl and I know that it's true
I want some mixed [Incomprehensible] you

Girl but it's alright, alright girl
You can hurt me but it's alright, oh yeah

Oh yeah
My, my, my, baby

I said it's alright, alright girl
Hey, now it's alright, alright girl

Now everything I wanna say, yeah
You'll meet a guy that'll make you pay
He'll treat you bad and make you sad
And you will ruin the love you had

Oh, but I'd hate to say I told you so
Baby, you got to, got to reap what you sow

Girl, but it's alright, alright girl
You are payin' now but it's alright

Goodbye love, goodbye girl
You're payin' now but it's alright
You hurt me once, you hurt me twice
Oh, but a baby, that don't cut no ice
