Beating Around the Bush
AC/DC Lyrics


Smiling face and loving eyes
But you keep on telling me all those lies
How do you expect me to believe
Honey I ain't that naive

Baby I got my eye on you
'Cause you do all the things I want you to
Stop your cryin' and dry your tears
I ain't that wet behind the ears
You can throw me lefts
And you can throw me rights
But where was you last night
Beating around the bush

Wish I knew what's on your mind
Why you being so unkind?
Remember those nights we spent alone
Talkin' on the telephone?

Thoughts of you goin' through my brain
You told me that you felt the same
You said that you loved me too
But tell me who was there with you

I was talking birds and you was talking bees
And was he down on his knees
Beatin' 'round the bush

You're the meanest woman I've ever known
Sticks and stones won't break my bones
I know what you're looking for
You eaten your cake, you want some more
I'm gonna give you just a one more chance
Try to save our romance
Done everything I'm gonna do
The rest is up to you

You can chew it up
And you can spit it out
Let it all hang out
Beating around the bush, oh

Chew it up, spit it out
Let it all hang out,
Beating around the bush

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Smiling face and loving eyes
But you keep on telling me all those lies
How'd you expect me to believe?
Honey, I ain’t that naive
Baby, I've got my eye on you
Cause you do all the things I want you to
Stop your crying and dry your tears
I ain’t that wet behind the ears

[Chorus]
And you can throw me lefts
And you can throw me rights
But where was you last night?
Beating around the bush

[Verse 2]
Wish I knew what's on your mind
And why you're being so unkind
Remember those nights we spent alone
Talking on the telephone?
Thoughts of you go through my brain
Told me that you felt the same
Don't say that you love me too
Tell me who would lie with you?

[Chorus 2]
I was talking birds
And you was talking bees
Or was he down upon his knees?
Beating around the bush

[Guitar Solo 1]

[Verse 3]
You're the meanest woman I've ever known
Sticks and stones won't break my bones
I know what you're looking for
You've eaten your cake, you want some more
I'm gonna give you just a one more chance
Try to save our romance
Done everything I'm going to do
The rest is up to you

[Chorus 3]
And you can chew it up
And you can spit it out
Let it all hang out
Beating around the bush

[Guitar Solo 2]

[Outro]
Chew it up
Spit it out
Let it all hang out
Beating around the bush

Smilin' face and laughin' eyes
But ya can't keep on tellin' me all those lies
How'd you expect me to believe
Honey I ain't that naive
Baby I got my eye on you
Cause you do all the things I want you to
Stop your cryin' and dry your tears
I ain't that wet behind the ears

You can throw me lefts, you can throw me rights
But where was you last night
Beatin' around the bush

Wish I knew what was on your mind
Why you bein' so unkind
Remember those nights we spent alone
Talkin' on the telephone
Thoughts of you goin' through my brain
You told me that you felt the same
You said that you loved me too
But tell me who was there with you

I was talkin' birds, and you was talkin' bees
And was he down on his knees
Beatin' around the bush

You're the meanest woman I've ever known
Sticks and stones won't break my bones
I know what you're looking for
You've eaten your cake you want some more
I'm gonna give you just a one more change
Try to save our romance
I've done everything I'm gonna do
The rest is up to you

And you can chew it up, you can spit it out
You can let it all hang out
Beatin' around the bush

And you can chew it up, you can spit it out
You can let it all hang out
Beatin' around the bush
