You I Can Take

from CARAMELANCHOLYFLOWER by Stephen Bard

lyrics

I can’t take this whistle in the morning
Telling me to get out of the bed
And I can’t take these companies pretending
There ain’t nothin’ heavy in the bread
I can’t take these industries believing
This world of ours ain’t hangin’ by a thread
And I can’t take these governments deceiving
Honest folk with everything they’ve ever said

But you, you, you I can take
Everything you do and all you say
Yes you, you, you, you I can take
Every day, every day
Every day until my dying day

Now I can’t take this news on television
Especially when most of it ain’t even true
And I can’t take no musical decision
To play it white when everybody knows it’s black and blue
I can’t take these smiling politicians
Promising it all to get my vote
And I can’t take that if we all went fishin’
These crooks would probably push our asses right out of the boat

But you, you, you I can take
Everything you say and all you do
Yes you, you, you, you I can take
Every day, come what may
Every day until this life is through

Make an honest man out of me
All I need is you to love me
And to see your face each time I wake
Oh let me see your face each time I wake
‘Cause I can’t take this whistle in the morning…
