Once Bitten, Twice Shy
Ian Hunter

Lyrics

Hello.
Well, the times gettin' hard for you, little girl.
I'm a hummin' and a strummin' all over God's world.
You don't remember when you got your last meal
and you forgot just how a woman feels.
You didn't know what rock 'n' roll was
until you met a drummer on a Greyhound bus.
I got there in the nick of time before he got his hands across your state li -i -ine.
Well, in the middle of the night, on the open road, and the heater don't work
and it's oh-so-cold.
You're gettin' tired, baby,
lookin' kinda beat.
The music of the street, knock you off your feet.
You didn't know how rock 'n' roll looked
until you called your sister with a guy from the group.
Half-way home in the parking lot,
by the look in her eye she was givin' what she got.
Once bitten, twice shy, babe.
Once bitten, twice shy, babe.
Once bitten, twice shy, babe.
Woman you're a mess, gonna die in your sleep.
All the blood on my amp and my Les Paul's heat.
I can't leave you home 'cause you're runnin' around.
My best friend told me you're the best trick in town.
You didn't know that rock 'n' roll burned,
so you bought a candle and you loved and you learned.
You got the rhythm,
you got the speed,
but mama's little baby likes it short and sweet.
I'm once bitten, twice shy, babe.
Once bitten, twice shy, babe.
I'm once bitten, twice shy, babe.
I didn't know you got a rock 'n' roll record
until I saw your picture on another guy's jacket.
You told me I was the only one,
and look at you now,
well, it's dark as it's dumb.
Once bitten, twice shy, babe.
Once bitten, twice shy, babe.
Once bitten, twice shy, babe.
