Once Bitten Twice Shy
Ian Hunter Lyrics


Well the times are gettin' hard for you little girl
I'm a hummin' and a strummin' all over God's world
You can't remember when you had your last meal
And you don't know just how a woman feels

You didn't know what rock and roll was
Until you met my drummer on the Grey tour bus
I got there in the nick of time
Before he got his hands across your state line, yeah

Now it's the middle of the night on the open road
The heater don't work and it's oh so cold
You're lookin' tired, you're lookin' kinda beat
The rhythm of the street sure knocks you off your feet

You didn't know how rock and roll looked
Until you caught your sister with the guys from the group
Halfway home in the parking lot
By the look in her eye she was givin' what she got

I said my, my, my, I'm once bitten twice, shy babe
My, my, my, I'm once bitten twice shy baby
My, my, my, I'm once bitten twice shy baby

Oh, woman you're a mess, gonna die in your sleep
There's blood on my amp and my Les Paul's beat
Can't keep you home, you're messin' around
My best friend told me you're the best lick in town

You didn't know that rock and roll burned
So you bought a candle and you lived and you learned
You got the rhythm, you got the speed
Mama's little baby likes it short and sweet

I said my, my, my, I'm once bitten twice, shy babe
My, my, my, I'm once bitten twice shy baby
My, my, my, I'm once bitten twice shy baby

Alright! I didn't know you had a rock and roll record
Until I saw your picture on another guy's jacket
You told me I was the only one
But look at you now, it's as dark as it's gone

I said my, my, my, I'm once bitten twice, shy babe
My, my, my, I'm once bitten twice shy baby
My, my, my, I'm once bitten twice shy baby
I said my, my, my, I'm once bitten twice, shy babe
My, my, my, I'm once bitten twice shy baby

Well the times gettin' hard for you little girl
I'm a hummin' and a strummin' all over god's world
You don't remember when you got your last meal
And you forgot just how a woman feels
You didn't know what rock n' roll was
Until you met a drummer on a greyhound bus
I got there in the nick of time
Before he got his hands across your state line

Well in the middle of the night
On the open road
And the heater don't work and it's oh-so cold
You're gettin' tired baby, you're lookin' kinda beat
The music of the street, drive you off your feet
You didn't know how rock n' roll looked
Until you caught your sister with a guy from the group
Half-way home in the parking lot
By the look in her eyes she was givin' what she got

Once bitten twice shy, babe

Woman you're a mess gonna die in your sleep
All the blood on my hand and my les paul heat
I can't leave you home cos you're runnin' around
My best friend told me you're the best trick in town

You didn't know that rock n' roll burned
So you bought a candle and you loved and you learned
You got the rhythm, you got the speed
Mamma's little baby likes it short and sweet

Once bitten twice shy, babe

I didn't know ya got a rock n' roll record
Until a saw your picture on another guy's jacket
You told me I was the only one
And look at you now, well it's dark as it's dumb

Once bitten twice shy, babe

My, my, my, I'm once bitten twice shy baby

It came out in Oz in about 73, one of the best bits of rock you'll ever here... REAL.... I'm 60 now, resurrected that song in a few bands over the years, but, you wanna see the audience reaction.... Nothing changed.... Rock on

Sadly you never hear this version on any classic rock stations

John Efaw

WNCX Cleveland's classic rock station still plays it

Matthew

Probably because it sucks?

Jonn Cockrell

Today's classic rock stations are fake.
