If I Don't Get You The Next One Will by Lynsey de Paul

Album: If I Don't Get You The Next One WillReleased: 1976
  • Rumored to be written about boyfriend at the time, Ringo Starr, but actually about different boyfriends, this humorous song relates many of Lynsey's dating experiences. Lynsey had never sounded better and her vocal acrobatics were to predict the style of female vocals for the next few years (think Kate Bush, Lene Lovich, Toyah etc). Despite the witty lyrics and excellent synthesizer, it failed to chart. >>

LYRICS
I've been dated and waited until I was blue,
I've been cheated, mistreated and broken in two,
I've been lied to, denied to, till I've had my fill,
So, if I don't get you, well, the next one will,

I've been rung up and hung up when given a lie
I've been flattered and battered when I was just fine,
I've been dined, I've been wined, I've been given the bill,

So, if I don't get you, well, the next one will

Men are all the same,
they only wanna play a game,
We need them still

If I don't get you, well, the next one will

'cos I've been bitten and smitten,
It won't happen twice,
and I've been caught out and bought out below market price,
I've been nesting my best hits when dress up to kill

So, if I don't get you, well, the next one will

Men are all the same,
there ain't a women you can blame,
We need them still,
If I don't get you, well, the next one will

Woooh...

If I don't get you, ooh ooh
If I don't get you, ooh ooh
If I don't get you, ooh ooh

Well, I've been pawed, I've been bored, I've ignored all the signs,
and I've been used and abused and I'm just not that kind,
Your a zero, no hero, a positive nil,

so if I don't get you, well, the next one will
If I don't get you
If I don't get you
if I don't get you.....
the next one will

Yes, you
If I don't get you
You know that I will

If I don't get you
You know that I will

Cos I've been dated and waited until I was blue,
and I've been cheated, mistreated and broken in two,
I've been lied to, denied to till I've had my fill
So, if I don't get you, well, well, well!
I've been rung up and hung up when given a lie,
I've been flattered and battered when I was just fine,
I've been dined, I've been dined, I've been given the bill,

So, if I don't get you, well, the next one will yeah

If I don't get you you know if I don't get you,
no if I don't get you, yeah, the next one will
