Straight Shooter
The Mamas & the Papas Lyrics


Don't get me mad, don't tell no lie
Don't make me sad, don't pass me by
Baby are you holding, holding anything but me?
Because I'm a real straight shooter
If you know what I mean

You can bring me love, you can hang around
You can bring me up, don't you bring me down
Baby are you holding, holding anything but me?
Because I'm a real straight shooter
If you know what I mean

I've been searching all night
Just to find what I'm looking for
Baby, baby, treat me right
Or I won't come round your door
No more!

You can bring me love, you can hang around
You can bring me up, don't you bring me down
Baby are you holding, holding anything but me?
Because I'm a real straight shooter
If you know what I mean

I've been searching all night
Just to find what I'm looking for
Baby, baby, treat me right
Or I won't come round your door
No more!

Don't get me mad, don't tell no lie
Don't get me sad, just get me high
Baby, what your holding
Half of that belongs to me
Because I'm a real straight shooter

(Baby, don't you get me down)
I'm a real straight shooter
(I've been searching all night long)
I'm a real straight shooter (baby)
If you know what I mean
If you know what I mean

Don't get me mad, don't tell no lie.
Don't make me sad, don't pass me by.
Baby are you holding, holding anything but me?
Because I'm a real straight shooter,
If you know what I mean.
You can bring me love, you can hang around.
You can bring me up, don't you bring me down.
Baby are you holding, holding anything but me?
Because I'm a real straight shooter,
If you know what I mean.
I've been searching all night,
Just to find what I'm looking for.
Baby, baby, treat me right,
Or I won't come round your door
No more!
You can bring me love, you can hang around.
You can bring me up, don't you bring me down.
Baby are you holding, holding anything but me?
Because I'm a real straight shooter,
If you know what I mean.
I've been searching all night,
Just to find what I'm looking for.
Baby, baby, treat me right,
Or I won't come round your door
No more!
Don't get me mad, don't tell no lie.
Don't get me sad, just get me high.
Baby, what your holding,
Half of that belongs to me.
Because I'm a real straight shooter
I'm a real straight shooter...
(I've been searching all night long...)
I'm a real straight shooter (baby)
If you know what I mean...
If you know what I mean.

Wonder why this didn't appear on the official soundtrack for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood?

Thomas Jeffers

It is in the movie The Rhythm Section, which is a pretty good flick.

MerkinMuffly

It's just in the trailer. There were a lot of scenes cut out of the movie, this song was probably on one of those. But a different Mamas/Papas + Stones songs in the movie also didn't appear on the soundtrack.

W House

Is this version actually in the movie? I know we hear it on the trailer, and Abigail sings it in the movie, but I don't remember the MatP version in the film proper. I could be wrong.

We all know why we're here
