Ted Nugent – Smokescreen lyrics

Hey now mama if you got the time
There's a few things I must say
I got some news and it's on my mind
So don't get in my way
I won't be fooled by the things you do
I know all your tricks
There's a smokescreen baby all around you
I got some of my own licks


I work so hard and I treat you right
How could you be so cruel
Take advantage of my loving heart
Wait a minute I'm no fool
I know you and the things you do
Don't think you're fooling me
There's a smokescreen baby all around you
I just can't let you be


You admit that you was on the rag
Treating me with contempt
Might've been stoned it was such a drag
It was no suicide attempt
But I've worked it out
Everything's all right
I'm so glad to say
There's a smokescreen baby all around you
So don't get in my way

    The guy is mad because the girl is acting like she doesn't care about him. They're in love and the girl broke his heart. He needs to tell her how he feels, that he knows she feels the same way, but she put up a smokescreen to act like she's ok with the split but she's not, and he knows it, and he's letting her know. He doesn't want to kill himself or anything, but she hurt him, but he's alright, he's just trying to let her know she really hurt him.
