Damaged Goods
Gang of Four Lyrics


The change will do you good
I always knew it would
Sometimes I'm thinking that I love you
But I know it's only lust
Your kiss so sweet
Your sweat so sour

Your kiss so sweet
Your sweat so sour
Sometimes I'm thinking that I love you
But I know it's only lust
The sins of the flesh
Are simply sins of lust

Sweat's running down your back
Sweat's running down your neck
Heated couplings in the sun
(Or is that untrue?)
Colder couplings in the night
(Never saw your body)

Your kiss so sweet
Your sweat so sour
Sometimes I'm thinking that I love you
But I know it's only lust
The change will do you good
I always knew it would
You know the change will do you good
You know the change will do you good

Damaged goods (ah, ah, ah, ah)
Send them back (ah, ah, ah, ah)
I can't work, I can't achieve (ah, ah, ah, ah)
Send me back (ah, ah, ah, ah)
Open the till (ah, ah, ah, ah)
Give me the change you said would do me good
Refund the cost (ah, ah, ah, ah)
You said you're cheap but you're too much

Your kiss so sweet
Your sweat so sour
Sometimes I'm thinking that I love you
But I know it's only lust
The change will do you good
I always knew it would
You know the change will do you good
You know the change will do you good

I'm kissing you goodbye
(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
I'm kissing you goodbye
(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
I'm kissing you goodbye
(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
I'm kissing you goodbye
(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
I'm kissing you goodbye
(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
I'm kissing you goodbye
(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)

(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
Bye (goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)

I had a crush for a boy who always come to my neighbour's house every 3-4 years or so.

At first I was hooked by his eyes, then his voice, then everything about him. One day, I decided to make a move which was to go for a walk with him.
we did it twice and it was ok, he's a very well-spoken boy but quiet most of the time, so i had to make the move.

Strangely, everytime I remember him, this song will always playing in my head. Especially the line, “sometimes I'm thinking that I love you. But i know it's only lust.”
It was hit me and made me think about all things we did. Yep, I didn't love him at all. It's just a lust and full of curiousity feeling from a teenage girl who's only fifteen years at that time.

Finally I can let him go from my heart and continuing my life. I wrote this one day after he's back from my neighbour's house.

this is SO ahead of its time. every rock group in the noughties tried to replicate this, but none surpassed it.

David Sussman

So glad that this has over 100,000 views.  Back in the day (late 80s, early 90s), we Americans who knew of the Gang of Four were like mythical creatures, heard of but never seen, like unicorns or gryphons.  As much as I love Wire, the Clash, Joy Division, the Buzzcocks, etc., the Gang of Four were the probably the greatest of those late 70s punk bands to emerge from the UK scene: smart, angular, noisy, and poised.

HermanWaldorf

it's > 2 millions now :)

Am G

@David Sussman I just shared Wire with someone 20 years younger to introduce the great, but underrated music. It amazes me how some artists became so popular, but the ones you mentioned (and many more including some of my favorites like the Chameleons, Blancmange, APB) didn't make it big. The upside is that I get to see them in concert, close up in a small venue. I have to admit, I love that whereas sworn off stadium shows.

David Sussman

@Am G Yep. I was surprised seven years ago when I made this comment, thinking, "100K people know of the Go4?" The Buzzcocks, too, routinely have two million views for their best-known songs. Wire? They're still languishing with a couple hundred thou. Joy Division is off the charts at 79 million for "Love Will Tear Us Apart." Are these groups more popular with young people in the UK? America? I still think of these bands being a very specialized taste for Americans. I'll leave with one of my fave Go4 lines: "History is the reason I'm washed up." Preach!

Am G

7 years later, I would have never imagined that music considered "obscure" on Long Island, NY in the 80s would have 2 million + well deserved views!!

Every time someone breaks up with me, or I know they're going to break up with me, this song starts playing in my head. And then I feel okay.
