Seeing the Real You at Last

Well, I thought that the rain would cool things down

But it looks like it don't.

I'd like to get you to change your mind

But it looks like you won't.

.

From now on I'll be busy,

Ain't goin' nowhere fast.

I'm just glad it's over

And I'm seeing the real you at last.

.

Well, didn't I risk my neck for you,

Didn't I take chances?

Didn't I rise above it all for you,

The most unfortunate circumstances?

.

Well, I have had some rotten nights,

Didn't think that they would pass.

I'm just thankful and grateful

To be seeing the real you at last.

.

I'm hungry and I'm irritable

And I'm tired of this bag of tricks.

At one time there was nothing wrong with me

That you could not fix.

.

Well, I sailed through the storm

Strapped to the mast,

But the time has come

And I'm seeing the real you at last.

.

When I met you, baby,

You didn't show no visible scars.

You could ride like Annie Oakley,

You could shoot like Belle Starr.

.

Well, I don't mind a reasonable amount of trouble,

Trouble always comes to pass

But all I care about now

Is that I'm seeing the real you at last.

.

Well, I'm gonna quit this baby talk now,

I guess I should have known.

I got troubles, I think maybe you got troubles,

I think maybe we'd better leave each other alone.

.

Whatever you gonna do,

Please do it fast.

I'm still trying to get used to

Seeing the real you at last.

.
