lyrics

Take It Out On You (1st Version)

You look just like they use to
When everybody put me down
Now I'm ready to strangle
Gonna take it out on you-you-you-you
You beautiful you

My body is distorted
Someday it may be ok
But you'll live my problems
I'm gonna take them out on you-you-you-you
You beautiful you

I saw my own reflection
I didn't like the way it looked
It felt crummy and miserable
I'm gonna take it out on you-you-you-you
You beautiful you

Why do I hold them lawful?
Even as they say they took
I don't have the right stuff
I'm gonna take it out on you-you-you-you
You beautiful you-you are-are
Just-just what-what I've-I've been looking for

I could just live my life out
Thinking every single day
But I can't sort it out
In spite of you
You are so beautiful
You are so attractive
You are the one I need now
You are the one for me
You are so beautiful
You-you-you-you-you-you
You-you-you-you-you-you
