Lyrics - Beating Around The Bush

(Young, Young & Scott)

Taken from the album Highway To Hell

Recorded at Roundhouse Studios, London, England

Released in 1979

Produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange

Smilin' face and lovin' eyes
But you keep on tellin' me all those lies
How'd you expect me to believe ?
Honey I ain't that naive
Babe I got my eye on you
'Cause you do all the things that I want you to
Stop your cryin' and dry your tears
I ain't that wet behind, 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 bein' so unkind
Remember those nights we spent alone
Talking 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 upon his knees
Beating around the bush, oh

You're the meanest woman I've ever known
Sticks and stones won't break my bone
I know what you're lookin' 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 gonna do
The rest is up, to you

And 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
