"Hard To Handle"
by Black Crows
from Shake your Money Maker
lyrics by Otis Redding

Hey there, here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you got to come home with me

I forgot some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get to thrown it on you
You got to come back for more

Toys and things that come by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drug store lovin'
Hey little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, gets around

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man of great experience
I know you got another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand, don't be afraid
I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertisin' love for free
So, you can place your ad with me

Once it come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but ten cent lovin'
Hey little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, gets around

Yeah, hard to handle, now
Oh, baby

Baby, here I am
The man on your scene
I can give you what you want
But you got to come home with me

I forgot some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get to thrown it on you
You got to come runnin' back for more

Once it come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drug store lovin'
Hey little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, gets around

Hard, hard to handle, now
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah

Once it come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but ten cent lovin'
Hey little babe, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, gets around

Yeah, so hard to handle, now
Oh yeah
Baby, good lovin'
Baby, baby, owww, good lovin'
I need good lovin'
I got to have, oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah
So hard to handle, now, yeah
Um-um-um
