NOTHIN YOU CAN SAY

Written: Monterey Street, Farmington NM, spring 1966

 

Actually, a good musician friend of Kneesí, Mo Moses, wrote most of this song, including the killer guitar lick. Mo was apparently inspired by the Kinksí early songs like You Really Got Me and All Day and All of the Night. Knees sure would like to run into Mo again and pay him the royalties this song has generated. In 2003 this song was used during the tent-erecting scene in the David Hayes slasher film, Backwoods, which, according to NetFlix, is the third worst black comedy of all time.

 

You better watch out you better get outa town

If I catch you girl Iím gonna put you down

There ainít no use in you hangin around

I know all about the new love you found

Oh no

 

Nothin you can say can stop me now,

Iím gonna make you sad somehow.

Nothin you can say can stop me now,

Iím gonna make you sad somehow

Oh no, oh no.

 

Youíve been sayin that he treats you right

But I gave you lovin both day an night

One of these days youíre gonna see the light

You plead donít hurt me but I just might

Oh no
