Brass In Pocket

MP3 and lyrics The Pretenders

Got brass in pocket
Got bottle, I'm gonna use it
Intention I feel inventive
Gonna make you, make you, make you notice

Got motion, restrained emotion
Been driving uh, Detroit leaning
No reason, just seems so pleasing
Gonna make you, make you, make you notice

Gonna use my arms
Gonna use my legs
Gonna use my style
Gonna use my side step
Gonna use my fingers
Gonna use my, my, my, imagination

'Cause I going make you see
There's nobody else here, no one like me
I'm special, so special
I got to have some of your attention, give it to me!

Got rhythm, I can't miss a beat
Got a new skank, so reet
Got something, I'm winking at you
Gonna make you, make you, make you notice

Gonna use my arms
Gonna use my legs
Gonna use style
Gonna use my side step
Gonna use my fingers, gon' use my, my, my imagination

Oh, 'cause I gonna make you see
There's nobody else here, no one like me
I'm special, so special
I got to have some of your attention, give it to me!

'Cause I gonna make you see
There's nobody else here, no one like me
I'm special, so special
I got to have some of your attention, give it to me!

Oh, when you walk

Middle Of The Road


pretenders, middle of the road

Music and Lyrics  Pretenders

Middle of the road
Is trying to find me
Well I'm standing in the middle of life
With my pains behind me

But, I got a smile
For everyone I meet
As long as you don't try dragging my bay
Or dropping the bomb on my street

Now just come on baby
Oh, get in the road
Oh, come on now
In the middle of the road, yeah

In the middle of the road
You see the darnedest things
Like fat cats driving around in jeeps through the city
Wearing big diamond rings and silk suits

Past corrugated tin shacks holed up with kids
And man I don't mean a Hampstead nursery
But when you own a big chunk of the bloody Third World
The babies just come with the scenery

Oh, come on baby
Get in the road
Oh, come on now
In the middle of the road, yeah

One, two, three, four, five, six
In the middle of the road
Is my private cul-de-sac

Well, I can't get from the cab to the curb
Without some little jerk on my back
And don't harass me Can't you tell
I'm going home? I'm tired as Hell
I'm not the cat I used to be
I've got a kid, I'm thirty-three baby

Well, get in the road
Come on now
In the middle of the road, yeah, now

Angel Of The Morning


pretenders, angel of the morning

Music and Lyrics  Pretenders

There'll be no strings to bind your hands
Not if my love can't bind your heart
And there's no need to take a stand
For it was I who chose to start

I see no reason to take me home
I am old enough to face the dawn

Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, oh, baby
Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Then slowly turn away from me

Maybe the sun's light will be dim
So it won't matter anyhow
If morning's echo says we've sinned
Well, it was what I wanted now

And if we're victims of the night
I won't be blinded by the light

Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, oh, baby
Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Then slowly turn away
I won't beg you to stay with me

Through the tears of the pain
Of the years, oh, baby, baby, baby, baby

Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby, baby
Oh, baby

Back On The Chain Gang


The Pretenders, podcast

Music and Lyrics The Pretenders

  • Back On The Chain Gang
I found a picture of you, o-o-oh, o-o-oh
You had hijacked my world at night
To a place in the past we've been
passed out of, o-o-oh, o-o-oh
Now we're back in the fight

We're back on the train, yeah
O-oh, back on the chain gang

Circumstance beyond our control, o-o-oh, o-o-oh
The phone, TV and the news of the world
Got in the house like a pigeon from Hell,
o-o-oh, o-o-oh
Threw sand in our eyes and descended like flies

And put us back on the train, yeah
O-oh, back on the chain gang

The powers that be
That force us to live like we do
Bring me to my knees
When I see what they've done to you

Well, I'll die as I stand here today
Knowing that deep in my heart
They'll fall to ruin one day
For making us part

I found a picture of you, o-o-oh, o-o-oh
Those were the happiest days of my life
Like a break in the battle was your part,
o-o-oh, o-o-oh
In the wretched life of a lonely heart

Now I'm back on the train, yeah
O-oh, back on the chain gang

Don’t Get Me Wrong


The Pretenders, podcast

Audio The Pretenders

  • Don’t Get Me Wrong
Don't get me wrong
If I'm looking kind of dazzled
I see neon lights
Whenever you walk by

Don't get me wrong
If you say "hello" and I take a ride
Upon a sea where the mystic moon
Is playing havoc with the tide
Don't get me wrong

Don't get me wrong
If I'm acting so distracted
I'm thinking about the fireworks
That go off when you smile

Don't get me wrong
If I split like light refracted
I'm only off to wander
Across a moonlit mile

Once in awhile
Two people meet
Seemingly for no reason
They just pass on the street
Suddenly thunder, showers everywhere
Who can explain the thunder and rain
But there's something in the air

Don't get me wrong
If I come and go like fashion
I might be great tomorrow
But hopeless yesterday

Don't get me wrong
If I fall in the 'Mode of Passion'
It might be unbelievable
But let's not say "So long"
It might just be fantastic
Don't get me wrong
