You Better You Bet


You better you better you bet.
You better you better you bet.
You better you better you bet.
You better you better you bet.


I call you on the telephone my
Voice too rough with cigarettes.
I sometimes feel I should just go home
But I'm dealing with a memory that never forgets

I love to hear you say my name
Especially when you say yes
I got your body right now on my mind
But I drunk myself blind to the sound of old T-Rex,Mmmmm
To the sound of old T-Rex oh,and Who's Next

Chorus:

When I say I love you you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you you say you better
You better you better you bet
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you,cut you like a knife

I want those feeble minded axes overthrown
I'm not into your passport picture, I just like your nose
You welcome me with open arms and open legs
I know only fools have needs, but this one never begs

I don't really mind how much you love me
Ooh, a little is alright
When you say
Come over and spend the night
Tonight
Tonight

Chorus:

When I say I love you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you,cut you like a knife

I lay on the bed with you
We could make some book of records
Your dog keeps licking my nose
And chewing up all those letters
Saying "you better"

You better bet your life

You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me back into line now
You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me back into line now.

I showed up late one night
With a neon light for a Visa
But knowing I'm so eager to fight
Can't make letting me in any easier

I know I been wearing crazy clothes
And I look pretty crappy sometimes
But my body feels so good
And I still see the rays of light everytime.

And when it comes to all night living
I know what I'm giving
I've got it all down to a tee
And it's free.

Chorus:

When I say I love you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I love you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you scream you better,Ooooo!
You better you better you bet
When I say I love you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I love you, you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you scream you better
You better you better you bet


You better bet your life
Or love will cut you, just like a knife

    The line, "i show up late one night with a neon light for a visa". It's not visa, it's beezer, slang for nose, meaning his nose was red from drinking too much.
