Well they were given the grapes that go ripe in the sun That loosen the screws at the back of the tongue But they told no one where they had begun Four horsemen
They were given all the foods of vanity And all the instant promises of immortality But they bit the dust screamin' insanity! Four horsemen
One was over the edge, one was over the cliff One was lickin' 'em dry with a bloody great spliff When they picked up the hiker he didn't want the lift From the horsemen
But you! You're not searching, are you now? You're not looking anyhow You're never gonna ride that lonely mile Or put yourself up on trial Oh, you told me how your life was so bad An' I agree that it does seem sad But that's the price that you gotta pay If you're lazing all around all day Four horsemen coming right through Four horsemen and they're pissing by you They make you look like you're wearing a truss Four horsemen and it's gonna be us
Well they gave us everything for bending the mind And we cleaned out their pockets and we drank 'em blind It's a long way to the finish so don't get left behind By those horsemen
And they gave us the grapes that went ripe in the sun That loosen the screws at the back of the tongue But we still told nothing 'bout what was to come Four horsemen
We know, only rock and roll We know, got rock and roll We're in the park Or in the campus Cannot breathe We beat the thief, ae ohh ah Cannot breathe We beat the theft, ohh ah Cannot breathe
We know, only rock and roll We know, got rock and roll We know, got rock and roll We know, got rock and roll

The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
