  • Lyrics
  • Written by Dan Walsh and Harvey Price, this is the favorite of all the songs that they have written. In addition, lead singer Rob Grill describes it as his "all-time favorite Grass Roots song." It's about a temptress who drives the singer wild, even though he can't have her for himself. >>
