Gerry Rafferty Lyrics

"Right Or Wrong" lyrics


Right or Wrong (Stealers Wheel) version
I woke up, remembered everything I said to you last nightBut this time I sure won't worry about what I might have done'Cause I was out to please myself,Right or wrong.
You came in, looking like a long lost sheep,Said I've been using youYou got what you wanted, and that's alrightBut you were out to please yourselfRight or wrongUmmmmm yeah you were out to please yourselfRight or wrong.
Don't hang your head down, there ain't no shameIn what we've both been throughAlthough I'd like to help you outYou know I've got to save myselfRight or wrongUmmmmm you know I've got to save myselfRight or wrong.
When you go back, you know you're gonna have to look your bestYou're gonna have to turn on the magicMake believe it's realYou're gonna have to save yourselfRight or wrongUmmmmm yeah we were out to please ourselvesRight or wrongYeah we were out to please ourselves.
(fade)Yeah please yourself please yourselfRight or wrong yeah please yourself

Over My Head version
I woke up, remembered everything I said to you last nightBut this time I sure won't worry about what I might have done‘Cause I was out to please myself,Right or wrong.
You came in, looking like a long lost sheep,Said I've been using youYou got what you wanted, and that's alrightBut you were out to please yourselfRight or wrongUmmmmm yeah you were out to please yourselfRight or wrong.
Don't hang your head down, there ain't no shameIn what we've both been throughAlthough I'd like to help you outYou know I've got to save myselfRight or wrongUmmmmm you know I've got to save myselfRight or wrong.
Shake me when you're leavin' in the morningPack up your bags while I open my eyesI know you're gonna wake me in the morningSay bye bye and I'll be loving you.
When you go back, you know you're gonna have to look your bestYou're gonna have to turn on the magicMake believe it's realYou're gonna have to save yourselfRight or wrongUmmmmm yeah we were out to please ourselvesRight or wrongYeah we were out to please ourselves.
(fade)Yeah please yourself please yourselfRight or wrong yeah please yourself
