Damaged Goods

Album: Entertainment! (1978)
  • The change will do you good
    I always knew it would
    Sometimes I'm thinking that I love you
    But I know it's only lust
    Your kiss so sweet
    Your sweat so sour

    Your kiss so sweet
    Your sweat so sour
    Sometimes I'm thinking that I love you
    But I know it's only lust
    The sins of the flesh
    Are simply sins of lust
    Sweat's running down your back
    Sweat's running down your neck
    Heated couplings in the sun
    (Or is that untrue?)
    Colder couplings in the night
    (Never saw your body)
    Your kiss so sweet
    Your sweat so sour
    Sometimes I'm thinking that I love you
    But I know it's only lust
    The change will do you good
    I always knew it would
    You know the change will do you good
    You know the change will do you good

    Damaged goods
    Send them back
    I can't work
    I can't achieve
    Send me back
    Open the till
    Give me the change
    You said would do me good
    Refund the cost
    You said you're cheap but you're too much
    Your kiss so sweet
    Your sweat so sour
    Sometimes I'm thinking that I love you
    But I know it's only lust
    The change will do you good
    I always knew it would
    You know the change will do you good
    You know the change will do you good

    I'm kissing you goodbye
    (Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
    I'm kissing you goodbye
    (Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
    I'm kissing you goodbye
    (Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
    I'm kissing you goodbye
    (Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
    I'm kissing you goodbye
    (Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
    I'm kissing you goodbye
    (Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
    (Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
    (Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
    (Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
    Bye
    (Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
