Rough and Ready Lyrics

4. Rough and Ready (4:49)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Gill]

Well, you're brought up on the street
Did ya make it on your own
Are ya living in the shadow
Crawling in the night
Sleeping in the subway
Beggin' for a fight
Makes ya grow up hard, boy
Aren't you ready for a fight

I don't need no one
You can keep you sympathy
I live on my own
I would make that company
I don't need no one
You can keep you sympathy
I live on my own
I would make that company
I'm rough and ready tonight
Crawling in the night
Standing on the corner
Asked ya for smoke
I kick you in the deep, boy
Steel away you girl
Talked into a night fight
They cut me to the bone
Don't ya mess with me, boy
Ya better leave me alone
I would make that company
I don't need no one
You can keep you sympathy
I live on my own
I would make that company
I don't need no one
You can keep you sympathy
I live on my own
I would make that company
I'm rough and ready tonight

Maybe seeing a call girl
I'll take ya for a ride
The cops will never break me
Steal away my pride
If you're looking for a good time
And ya wanna ride with me
And you're feeling rough and ready
Rough and ready with me

You can change my life
You can read my mind
I don't want no one
I don't have no one
I don't need no one
You can keep your sympathy

Well, you're brought up on the street
Did ya make it on your own

Sleeping in the subway
Begging for a fight
Makes ya grow up hard, boy
Ain't you ready for a fight

I don't need no one
You can keep you sympathy
I live on my own

I don't need no one
You can keep you sympathy
I live on my own
I would make that company
I'm rough and ready tonight

Rough and ready tonight
[Repeat to end]
