Robert Palmer – Trick Bag lyrics

12: 00 o' clock at night--you walk out the door.

You told me baby--you were going to the drug-store.
Well, in my mind, I knew you were lying;

The drug-store closed at a quarter to nine.

I say I saw you kissing Jimmy across the fence,

I heard you telling Jimmy I ain't got no sense.

The way you've been acting is such a drag;

You done put me in a trick-bag.
When I come home, start an argument,

Just to keep you from asking where my voodoo went.

I peek out of my window--somebody's taking it on the lam.
Peep out the front door--I hear the back door slam.
I say I saw you kissing Jimmy across the fence,

I heard you telling Jimmy I ain't got no sense.

The way you've been acting is such a drag;

You done put me in a trick-bag.

Got on the telephone--called your mom and dad.
We had a fight, then you got mad;

Dad said, "She's my daughter and I'm her pa,
And you ain't nothing but a son-in-law. "

I say I saw you kissing Jimmy across the fence,

I heard you telling Jimmy I ain't got no sense.
The way you've been acting is such a drag;

You done put me in a trick-bag.

Yeah, yeah x4
