album _Mistrial_
(Lou Reed, 1986)

written by Lou Reed
====================


        I was angry, I said things I shouldn't say
        but please don't turn your back
        Sometimes I get so upset
        but I take it all back

        Please don't go, I know I was wrong
        Sometimes I don't know what comes over me

        But I try to remember
        don't hurt a woman
        Don't hurt a woman

        I was angry, I said things I shouldn't say
        I must have lost control
        Sometimes something clicks in my head
        and I'm not myself anymore

        That wasn't me, you can't believe everything you see
        let's make believe I never said a word

        And I'll try to remember
        don't hurt a woman
        Try to remember
        don't hurt a woman
        Try to remember
        don't hurt a woman
        I'll try to remember
        don't hurt a woman
        'Cause I've been lovin' you
        so long

"Don't Hurt A Woman"

I was angry
I said things I shouldn't say
But please don't turn your back
Don't turn your back

Sometimes I get so upset
But I take it all back

Please don't go
I know I was wrong
Sometimes----I don't know
What comes over me

But I try to remember
Don't Hurt a Woman

I was angry
I said things I shouldn't say
I must have lost control
Sometimes something clicks in my head
And I'm not myself anymore

That wasn't me
You can't believe everything you see
Let's make believe I never said a word

And I'll try to remember
Don't Hurt a Woman
