No No No No No No You
recorded live at CBGBs in 1987
written by Brazelton / Scarperia

lyrics

how long? how long
can a girl exist
without it?
how long? how long
can she listen to her friends
talkin' about it?
when she is without it?

every night she goes down to the taproom
she gets all dressed up, she puts those braids in her hair
and then every night she just sits on a barstool
cuz there's no one there who dances like you do
laughs the way you do
makes love like you do

no no no no no no no no no you
no no no no no no no no no you
want some boy to touch me the way you used to
but there's no no no no no no no no no you

every night she rides home in a taxi
and she pays the fare and gets out her keys
she unlocks the door to her single apartment
once she's safe inside she gets down on her knees

no no no no no no no no no you
no no no no no no no no no you
want some boy to hold me the way you used to
but there's no no no no no no no no no you

every playground is a desert
every love song is a lesson
like a toy rusted in the rain
nowhere is the boy who can make me new again

no no no no no no no no no you
no no no no no no no no no you
want some boy to want me the way you used to
but there's no no no no no no no no no you
want some boy to love me the way you used to
but there's no no no no no no no no no you
