Steppenwolf – Skullduggery lyrics

Words and music by Bobby Cochran

Thought I was cool when I played in school for all my family
Had a smile for quite a while but now I finally see
All the girls at your feet made you want to play for free
Now I know they got my soul I was too damn blind to see

Chorus: Skullduggery, Skullduggery, Skullduggery, Skullduggery

Out 'ta sight everything's alright are the words that fed my head
Don't look now if you turn around you might just wind up dead
Got our crew and look it fool, the gun's aimed at your head
Play all night better get it right tomorrow call the feds

Chorus: Skullduggery, Skullduggery, Skullduggery, Skullduggery

Bridge: It's too lake baby but it's alright
'cause we're gonna make it with you tonight
The world outsides' livin' all alone
'Cause we've been makin' plans of our own

Chorus: Skullduggery, Skullduggery, Skullduggery, Skullduggery

Had your fun, now your work is done, you've just been usin' me
All the while had a big bad smile but not quite like your fee
You've been a jerk for what it's worth; a friend is what I need
Now I know that you're the fool and I am finally free

Chorus: Skullduggery, Skullduggery, Skullduggery, Skullduggery
Skullduggery, Skullduggery, Skullduggery, Skullduggery
