Tom Tom Club – Never Took A Penny lyrics

Never took a penny
Never told a lie
You made me so unhappy
Now I'm goin' to make you cry

You hit me hard
Hard as hell
You may as well
Have left me as for dead

I helped you play the fish
I never steered you wrong
Whatever you might wish
You know it's been my song

It took a long long time to become myself

With your american gift
Where there is money and skill
You gave another twist
To the proverbial screw

I should have looked deeper
Deeper still
Into your very soul

I gave you what was mine
Your wanting more belies
The fact that you've got dollar signs
In both your little eyes

I will cut out
The dead wood
The bad rot
Or find another love

Mercenary people
Messing with my heart
Nasty little devils
Always interfere with ours

I will survive
Despite you
I liked you
But now I'm on my own

I'm making merry music
I don't want to be sad
I've had a lot of trouble
But I'm not gonna stay mad

I will step out
All night
It feels right
To be on my own

All night
It feels right
To be on my own

I will step out
All night
It feels right
To be on my own

I'm making merry music
I don't want to be sad
I've had a lot of trouble
But I'm not gonna stay mad

I will step out
All night
It feels right
To be on my own...
