What You Don't Know (Sure Can Hurt You)

Album: Under the Blade (1982)
  • Good evening! hahahahaha!
    Welcome to our show!
    If you've got that problem, yeah
    Well I think that you should know
    This ain't the same old story
    Or the same old song and dance
    Don't speak of faed glory
    Cause you won't get a second chance
    I want to tell you something
    I'm someone you can trust
    You'd better take a good, hard look
    Cause there's a diamond in this dust

    Hit it!
    We're no overnight sensation
    No Cinderella fantasy
    Please no plaudits or ovations
    I've heard it all before, you see

    What you don't know sure can hurt you
    What you can't see makes you scream
    What you don't know sure can hurt you
    What you don't have is what you dream

    Ain't we a pretty picture?
    Ain't we a load of fun?
    Don't let me influence you
    I'll do that when we're done
    Oh, are we irritating?
    Oh, are we grating on your nerves?
    Don't you know that the good boys
    Never get what they deserve?

    What you don't know sure can hurt you
    What you can't see makes you scream
    What you don't know sure can hurt you
    What you don't have is what you dream

    Your brain is filled with questions
    You don't know how or why
    Don't look to me for answers, honey
    Cause I don't want to lie!

    How do you like it so far?
    Say, ain't we quite a show?
    There's no one else quite like us
    The others all get up and go
    Don't fill my head with stories
    You see, I ain't no debutante
    Let's get to the nitty gritty
    Now you give me what I want

    What you don't know sure can hurt you
    What you can't see makes you scream
    What you don't know sure can hurt you
    What you don't have is what you dream
