Lighten Up

Album: Chickenfoot III (2011)
  • Why you workin' so hard, baby
    You could be makin' it easy
    You know it pisses me of sometimes
    When you, you start acting sleazy

    I'm under so much pressure
    You know there's not much blowin' up
    Feelin' under the gun sometimes
    Makes me feel like throwin' up

    I said, oh baby
    You're pushin' too hard
    You're pushin' too hard
    You say, lighten up, uh

    Well, don't ask me no questions
    And I will tell you no lies
    We've been down that road before
    Babe it's me and not that other guy

    And I never wanted to hurt you
    I didn't mean to make you cry
    You always get what you want from me, don't you
    With a tear drop in your eye

    I said, oh baby
    You're pushin' too hard
    You're pushin' too hard
    You got to lighten up

    You're pushin' too hard
    You're pushin' on me
    You're pushin' too hard, baby
    Lighten up

    I like it when you want it
    Especially when you take it
    When you really, really need it
    That's why I know you're not faking it, wooh

    Hey, gonna call in a doctor
    Baby get you on some pills
    But then I started to worry about you, baby
    Could be the pill that kills

    I said, oh baby
    You're pushin' too hard
    You're pushin' too hard
    You got to lighten up

    Oh baby
    You're pushin' too hard
    Lighten up

    I said, oh baby
    You're pushin' too hard
    You're pushin' too hard

    Oh baby
    Come on, baby
    Come on, baby
    Lighten up

    Yeah

    Oh baby
    You're pushin' too hard
    Oh baby
    Baby, lighten up

    Pushin' too hard
    You're pushin' too hard
    Pushin' too hard
    Pushin' too hard
    Of where you want me to be
    I say, oh baby
    Pushin' too hard
    Oh baby, come on

    Pushin' too hard
    Baby, lighten up
    Oh baby Writer/s: JOE SATRIANI, SAMMY HAGAR, SKY SAXON
