YOU CAN LOOK (BUT YOU BETTER NOT TOUCH)

Alternative version 1

Yesterday I went shopping buddy down to the mall
Looking for something pretty I could hang on my wall
I knocked over a lamp before it hit the floor I caught it
A salesman turned around said, "boy, you break it you bought it"

You can look but you better not touch boy
You can look but you better not touch
You keep messing around and you'll end up in dutch boy
You can look but you better not, no you better not, no you better not touch

I came home from work and I switched on Channel 5
There was a pretty little girly lookin' straight into my eyes
Well I watched as she wiggled back and forth across the screen
She didn't get me excited she just made me feel mean

You can look but you better not touch boy
You can look but you better not touch
You keep messing around and you'll end up in dutch boy
You can look but you better not, no you better not, no you better not touch

Anyway you can taste it
Only a man can't taste it
He'll be given a time
Keep a man on the short line
Keep a working man on a short line

I called up Dirty Annie on the telephone
I took her out to the drive-in just to get the girl alone
I found a lover's rendezvous the music low set to park
I heard a tappin' on the window and a voice in the dark
Hey you, out of the car

You can look but you better not touch boy
You can look but you better not touch
Keep messing around and you'll end up in dutch boy
You can look but you better not no you better not no you better not touch
You can look but you better not no you better not no you better not touch
You can look but you better not no you better not no you better not touch
You can look but you better not no you better not no you better not touch


The above lyrics are for a version that was recorded in June 1979 in Holmdel, NJ.
