Before I was in a rock n' roll band
I couldn't get the time at day
Now I'm doin' everything I can
I thought I had it made

Strangers drop in and pretend they're friends
People I don't even know
I want you, I need you, it's so hard to tell
What you're really feelin' won't show

Don't abuse me
Now you listen to what I say
If you're tryin' to use me
Why don't you just go away?

You took me around and you showed me the town
I thought you were kind of nice
But if someone stepped in with more to show
You'd drop me without thinkin' twice

You tie yourself to my apron strings
Thinkin' your friends will be impressed
You get your way by bribin' me
Tellin' me I'm the best

Don't abuse me
Now you listen to what I say
If you're tryin' to use me
Why don't you just go away?

Who can I trust and where can I go
To find someone who truly wants me?
Take me for what I am
That's the way it's gotta be

Rock n' roll love, you want so bad
Tellin' everybody you're mine
We both know deep down inside
You're just diggin' for every dime

Don't abuse me
Now you listen to what I say
If you're tryin' to use me
Why don't you just go away?

Don't abuse me
Now you listen to what I say
If you're tryin' to use me
Why don't you just go away?
