Couldn't find the lyrics, so I downloaded the music and transcribed it
myself. There may be some errors, as English isn't my mother language, but I
think it will do. If you (or anyone else) could fill in the blanks and
repost it corrected, it would be fine.
Go Away, Little Boy
La la lala lala lala dida
How can I express to you the joy I felt
When I realized that I had found the perfect man for me?
The man who could make me feel all the things that I felt a woman should
I said "Darling, I wanna be the perfect woman for you"
I got myself a three-year subscription to 'Essence' magazine
Read it from cover to cover, you know, I wanted to be perfect for him
I said "Black is beautiful, just keep gettin' up, together we can make it!
It's gonna be all right
Forget about what society says is or isn't, or what can or cannot be
Keep gettin' up!"
He quit his job.
Came home one day with fourteen mirrors
Some of it all sheen, some of it all clean
Some of it all fluid, some of it all do it
To consider it a big open to get the black beautiful
"Check out the boy, mother's love, mother's love!"
I said "Well, my darling, I, I... I hate to gettin' you business, you know
what I mean, but I...
I mean... hmm
What about the job, and what about the gas and electricity, and the, the...
And not that I am equating... a job with you man, don't you understand
But I mean, you did had a choice in this"
He said "I've got to keep myself together
I'm tired of working for somebody else and maybe I'll... take out a small
business man's loaning
Open up a head shop"
I said "But that's not bringing no money and, I mean..."
He said "You work and I'm checkin' off my back"
I don't know, I, I, you see, I wasn't raised like that, John
I mean, I figure, if I can't get up and, and go to work everyday, then I...
Every able body within the household is supposed to get up and go, at least
Oh, I know it ain't easy, my dear, but...
I said "I... if for some reason you feel that you can no longer be the man
that I thought you were at the beginning of our relationship
Then I got this one thing to lay on you, my sweet"
Go away, little boy
Why don't you just go away, little boy
You see, I am not supposed to sit up here, alone in the dark
With some mirrors and no money and no use
I know, understand and recognize the fact that your lips, ooh, so sweet, aw!
But it don't look like our lips, hey, will have another chance to meet
I think I can find myself another man
And I know what to do when I got somebody who can be true
So why don't you ru-un-un-un-un away, little boy
Let the dawn up here to where the dark should have been to, little boy
'Cause you're hurting me more
Every minute that you delay, hey, hey
'Cause when you're near me like this, oh baby
You're gettin' kind of hard for me to understand, so my man
Just go on away, just go on away, just go on away, little boy
Before I do some hash
Oh, run run run run ru-u-u-u-n, little boy
Find yourself another set of new strings, little boy
'Cause you're hurting me more
Every minute that you delay, ooh, hey
Oh, when you're near me, when you're near me, when you're near me, when
you're near me
When you're near me, when you're near me, when you are close uptight like
You're gettin' just a little bit too hard for me to resist
So why don't you go on away, little boy
Why don't you just leave me alone, you know what I mean?
Go ahead, take your bangs with your... ???
??????????????????????? and Playboy magazines
Just go on, get out of my life!
But don't stand so close to me when you try to get that last goodbye kiss
I know you ????? now
Don't talk to me like that
And don't, don't kiss my lips any better...
And please don't suck my... earlobes like that and...
And, and don't, don't... oh, baby
Oh, oh, my lovecat
You think you can get a job by Thursday?
You promise? Then you don't fool me, just...
Then you might as well stay... stay...
Might as well stay
Don't go away
You can be my man one more time
But this time I wanna try harder too, sugar
This time I'm gon' be sweeter
