Never Let Your Guard Down

Maria Clavo 1958 (LA)



They'll see who's in a panic
Acting like a schitzophrenic
Your fists flying through the air
The threats you make show how little you care
A tape was made with your voice on it
That you can't deny cause it's legit
Only four voices on the tape
Sister's friend in a panic trying to escape
Stop playing those games
You're too old to be insane
In nineteen thousand it's time to stop
Otherwise the deputy's gonna get what I got
God loves to pay people back
Everyone knows that's a fact
Sweetie pie pulled your hand from your sister's face
Don't you know guys hitting girls are a disgrace
Stop acting crazy and move along
Whichever comes first is what I'll condone
