You Better You Bet

You Better You Bet

Pete Townshend

You better you better you bet Oooh.
You better you bet you bet Oooh.

I call you on the telephone
My voice too rough with cigarettes
I sometimes feel I should just go home
But I'm dealing with a memory that never forgets
I love to hear you say my name
Especially when you say yes.
I got your body right now on my mind
And I drunk myself blind to the sound of old T.Rex
To the sound of old T.Rex

When I say I love you, you scream "You better!"
You better you better you bet
When I say I love you, you say "You better!"
You better you better you bet
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you
Just like a knife.

I want those feeble-minded axes overthrown.
I'm not into your passport picture,
I just like your nose.
You welcome me with open arms and open legs
I know only fools show me needs, but this one never begs.

I don't really mind how much you love me
A little is alright
When you say, "Come over and spend the night"
Tonight... come over tonight.

When I say I love you, you scream "You better!"
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you say "You better!"
You better you better you bet
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you
Just like a knife..

I lay on the bed with you
We could make some book of records
Your dog keeps licking my nose
And chewing up all those letters
Saying "You better!"
You better bet your life.

You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me, back into line now
You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me, back into line now

I showed up late one night with a neon light for a visa
But knowing I'm so eager to fight can't make letting me in any easier
I know that I been wearing crazy clothes, and I look pretty crappy sometime
But my body feels so good and I still sing a razor line every time

And when it comes to all-night living
I know what I'm giving
I've got it all down to a tee
And it's free

When I say I love you, you say "You better!"
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you say "You better!"
You better you better you bet
When I say I love you, you scream "You better!"
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you say "You better!"
You better you better you bet
When I say I love you, you scream "You better!"
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you, you say "You better!"
You better you better you bet
"You Fucking better!"
You better you better you bet
When I say I love you "You better!"
You better you better you bet

You better bet your life
Or love will cut you
Just like a knife.
