Get Off My Back


You’ve been following me around,
You’ve been getting me down.
Like a shadow,
You’re always on my tail, yes you are
No matter where I go I just can’t hide, oh no


What does it take/ for you/ to get off my back? Oh boy.


If you’re gonna take me,
Then take me now.
What’s the point
Of lingering around? I don’t know
Don’t you know that you’re starting to creep me out?


I tell ya man/ I said you better/ g-g-get off/ my b-back, huh!


I don’t like the look on your face,
Steely eyes and a terminal grin.
Are you the devil, or the angel of mercy?
Doesn’t matter, just get of my skin!
But it’s a fight that I know I just can’t win, oh no, no


I just want you to get off my back!
