GREGG ALLMAN lyrics - Don't Stand In My Way

GREGG ALLMAN
"Don't Stand In My Way"

Now this bad boy back in Brooklyn
With such a hunger in his eyes.
He was tall, he was lean, you just know he was mean,
Just like a devil in disguise.

Well, this man, he just stood in a corner,
Another one of those quiet kind,
But you just smell bad news like a long slow fuse
Guaranteed to blow your mind.

It was after dark, in Sunset Park,
In the heat of a New York night.
When a shot rang out, I heard somebody shouted:
"This bad Mambajamba's gonna make it all right"

Don't stand (Chorus: "Don't stand, stand in my way!"), don't you stand in my way!
Ain't nothing to say about it.
Don't stand (Chorus: "Don't stand, stand in my way!"), don't you stand in my way!
I said "That's O. K. I wouldn't doubt it"

Don't be a bad guy, be a nice guy...

Now he looks to the left, he looks to the right,
Looks away, 'cause he don't care to fight.
When push comes to shove, and shove comes to push,
He strikes like a rattlesnake from out of a bush.

So if you hear that sound better get out town,
Before the walls come tumbiling down!

Don't stand, don't you stand in my way!
Ain't nothing to say about it.
Don't stand, don't you stand in my way!
I said "That's O. K. Maybe some other day"

'Cause what once was patience
Is suddenly a blinding rage
So don't you be mistaken,
You bound to break, get out of the way!

Don't stand, don't you stand in my way!
Ain't nothing to say about it!
Don't stand, don't you stand in my way!
I said "That's O. K. I wouldn't doubt it"
Dooon't stand, don't you stand in my way!
Ain't nothing to say about it.
Don't stand, don't you stand in my way!
I said "That's O. K. Maybe another day"
Dooon't stand, don't you stand in my way!
Ain't nothing to say about it.
Don't stand, don't you stand in my way!
I said "That's O. K. Maybe another day"
Don't stand, don't you stand in my way!
Ain't nothing to say about it!
Don't stand, don't you stand in my way!
I said "That's O. K. Ha, ha, ha, ha"
Don't stand, don't you stand in my way!
Ain't nothing to say about it!
Don't stand, don't you stand in my way!
I said "That's O. K."
