John Mellencamp – Let It All Hang Out lyrics

Written by B. B. Cunningham, G. Mcewen, J. Master, J. Hunter
There are minor changes by John Mellencamp in ()

I preach my dear friends you are about to receive on John Barley
Corn, nicotine and the temptations of Eve.
(John doesn't sing/say this first verse)

No parking by the sewer sign
Hotdog my razor broke
Water dripping up the spout
But (hey) I don't care - Let it all Hang Out

Hanging from a pine tree by my knees
Sunshine through the shade
Nobody knows what it's all about
It's too much man - Let it all Hang Out

Saw a man walking upside down
My tv's on the blink
Make Galileo look like a boy scout
Sorry about that - Let it all Hang Out

Sleep all day, drive all night
Brain my numb can't stop now
For sure () ain't no doubt
Keep an open mind - Let it all Hang Out

It's raining inside a big brown moon
How does that mess your baby up leg
Eating a reuben sandwich with sauerkraut
Don't stop now honey (woman) - Let it all Hang Out

Man in the straw house
Sure don't know what he's talkin' about
Don't leave me standing
On the front porch baby
Makes me feel like I'm selling something
Ask me in - Let it all Hang Out
