Been beat up and battered aroundBeen sent up and I’ve been shut downYou’re the best thing that I’ve ever foundHandle me with careReputations changeableSituations tolerableBut baby you’re adorableHandle me with careI’m so tired of being lonelyI still have some love to giveWon’t you show me that you really care? Everybody’s got somebody to lean onPut your body next to mine and dream onI’ve been fucked up and I’ve been fooledI’ve been robbed and ridiculedDaycare census and night schoolsHandle me with careBeen stuck in airports, terrorizedSent to meetings, hypnotizedOverexposed commercializedHandle me with careI’m so tired of being lonelyI still have some love to giveWon’t you show me that you really careEverybody’s got somebody to lean onPut your body next to mine and dream onI’ve been uptight and made a messBut I’ll clean it up myself I guessOh the sweet smell of successHandle me with care
