The Guess Who

The Guess Who are a Canadian rock band from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Initially gaining recognition in Canada, they also found international success from the late 1960s through the mid-1970s with numerous hit singles, including "American Woman", "These Eyes" and "Share the Land". Several former members of The Guess Who, notably Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman (of Bachman–Turner Overdrive), have also found considerable success outside the band. more »

Beware of lies
They'll always take you by surprise
Bringin' pieces of pain
You'll maybe never sleep again

Me and Sailor workin' on a secret relation
Down in the soda sunlight
Picked up on a jug and my calendar sweetheart
And we were rockin' lightly
We really got to rockin' lightly
Deep, deep down that's where I belong
Sweet street light never done me no wrong
I'm goin' back, back, back to the city

So beware of man
He'll never tell you where you stand
Bringin' pieces of pain
You'll maybe never sleep again

Bop, shop, doo-wah, do-be
Bop, shop, doo-wah

Tinker, tailor, sailor, mailer, bows and buttons
Thank you all for reason
Meet me in the alley where the road gets dark
And we'll be rockin' lightly
We'll get to rocking lightly
Deep, deep down that's where I belong
Sweet street light never done me no wrong
I'm goin' back, back, back to the city

So beware of lies
They'll always take you by surprise
Bringin' pieces of pain
You'll maybe never sleep again

Well careful now, careful now, careful
They're telling you lies
They're tryna take you by surprise
Bringin' pieces of pain
Maybe never sleep again

Be careful now, who are you talking to?
Telling, they're telling you, screaming the lies
Ooh and they're takin' you by surprise
Bringin' pieces of pain
Maybe never sleep again

Well they're telling, you're screaming
you're shouting up all of the lies
It's takin' you by, takin' you by
