Don't Make No Promises (Your Body Can't Keep)

Album: Animal Magnetism (1980)
  • I saw this girl walking down the street
    I thought, oh yeah, she looks rather neat
    I grabbed my chance and played my usual game
    I tell you man, it can be a strain

    She didn't want to know what I'd got to say
    Just shook her head and looked the other way
    And then she said, I've met your type before
    For me you're all the same, you're such a bore

    Oh no, don't make no promises
    Oh no, your body can't keep

    Next day, can you believe, she was at the show
    She said, hey man, you're great and she took me home
    She started to undress, what a shock to see
    Padded bra, blond wig, not much left for me

    [Chorus x3]
    Oh no, don't make no promises
    Oh no, your body can't keep Writer/s: HERMANN ERBEL, MATTHIAS JABS
