J. Geils Band – Somebody lyrics

I didn't take the warning
I really didn't care
I had already gone too far
To let them steal my share
So like a fool I took the on
And as my anger grew
I realized I could take all mine
And skip off with theirs, too

I know I must be crazy
I'm bound to wake up dead

Somebody -- somebody
Waitin' outside my back door
Somebody -- somebody
Tryin' to even up the score

I figured I should lay real low
And stayed away from town
I covered up all my moves
So it'd be hard to track me down
But I started gettin' shaky
And I paced around the floor
Hiding out -- all alone
I couldn't take much more

Just sitting 'round here waitin'
Is drivin' me up the wall

Somebody -- somebody
Waitin' outside my back door
Somebody -- somebody
Tryin' to even up the score

So I called up my old friend Marlene
Who was lookin' for some fun
I got drunk and like a fool
I told her what I'd done
I heard them knockin' at my door
They got to me at last
It don't take much to figure out
How they'd found me out so fast

And when I looked for my Marlene
I saw that she was gone

Somebody -- somebody
Waitin' outside my back door
Somebody -- somebody
Tryin' to even up the score

Somebody -- somebody
Waitin' outside my back door
Somebody -- somebody
Tryin' to even up the score

Somebody -- somebody
Waitin' outside my back door
Somebody -- somebody
Tryin' to even up the score
