lyrics

You knock back the Schnopps,
You talk back to Cops
You walk in the room and conversation stops
I Can’t take you nowhere, I Can’t take you nowhere

You stagger, You sag,
You’re half in the bag,
On glass of beer and you’re a total drag
I Can’t take you nowhere, I can’t take you nowhere

I buy 3 or 4
You mooch plenty more
The check comes around and you are out the door
I can’t take you nowhere, I can’t take you nowhere
I don’t want to watch you fall on your Face

You’re loud and you’re lude
You tend toward the crude
My friend’s are disgusted with you attitude
I can’t take you nowhere, I can’t take you nowhere

You mumble you moan
You grumble you groan,
You called Honalulu on my telephone
I can’t take you nowhere, I can’t take you nowhere

I hear people say
You won’t go away
You stop by for breakfast and you stay all day
I can’t take you nowhere, I can’t take you nowhere

That’s right
Try not to get uptight,
But I can’t take you nowhere
Cause I don’t know a place
Where you can show your face
And anyway, I’d just like to say,
So sad to say you must be on your Way

So have a real nice day
But I can’t take you nowhere
Cause I don’t know a place where you can show your face
And anyway, I’d just like to say,
So sad to say you must be on your way
What a pity to say
So Long
