Un esempio rappresentativo di testo garage della metà degli anni sessanta, il testo è ricostruito a orecchio confrontando la versione originale con la cover incisa nel 1984 dai Gravedigger Five di Leighton Koizumi, che è un poco diversa nel dettaglio. Ampio beneficio d’inventario.


DO LIKE ME The Uncalled For (1965)

If you ever had a day
When the man has got you down,
And everyone you know
Is playing you for a clown,
And your head is still spinning
From the binge the night before,
And your loving mom and dad
Just kicked you out the door...

Come on over!
I'm going to show it to you
Everything I know, girl,
Everything to do.
I'm gonna set you an example
Show you how to be:
If you wanna do right, girl,
Do like me.

Yeah.

When the man is cool
And he's cutting out your kicks,
And all of your friends
Are acting like a bunch of geeks,
And you got your troubles,
And you're always late,
And you buzz so bad
You can't concentrate.

Come on over!
I'm going to show it to you
Everything I know, girl,
Everything to do.
I'm gonna set you an example
Show you how to be:
If you wanna do right, girl,
Do like me.

Yeah.

Now, I'm not the bore
That you met before
I'll give you lots of loving
And a whole lot more,
Yeah I've heard that lot of rumors
'bout you and your fun
If you stick with me baby
Your laughs just begun.

Come on over!
I'm going to show it to you
Everything I know, girl,
Everything to do.
I'm gonna set you an example
Show you how to be:
If you wanna do right, girl,
Do like me.

Yeah.
