Yeah

What can I take from you?
I said, what can I take from you?
What's worth one plug nickel from a silly fool?
What can I take from you

Said, why did I leave you there?
Why did I leave you there?
With your long black kitty and your funky hair
Why did I leave you there?

Give it to me
Talkin' about a friend of mine

See Mr. Danny Boy
Did ya see Mr. Danny Boy?
He's a rough tough boxer, he's a bundle of joy
Did ya see Mr. Danny Boy?

Say, why did I leave you there?
Why did I leave you there?
With your long black kitty and your funky hair

I said baby
Stop lovin' by the rules
Alright, c'mon, do it

I heard the rumors Danny
So stop your talkin' Danny
I heard the rumors Danny, Danny

Lost down in Santa Fe
I had love with a runaway
And to think my daddy thought I was gay
I said I lost mine in Santa Fe

The riff miester is my friend
The riff miester is my friend
I love that motherfucker till the very end
Bolan was my man

Oh baby
Stop lovin' by the rules
I heard the rumors, Danny
Ay, c'mon, do it

I heard the rumors, Danny
So stop your talkin' Danny
I heard the rumors, Danny

It's a long, long road for this here desperado
And it's cold, cold, cold, my visions of tomorrow
So when was the last time you wrote for me a song?

I said baby
Stop loving by the rules
And don't play for sorrow
Don't play the fool
Don't play the fool, yeah

Baby, baby, baby
Baby, baby, baby
I'm talkin' to you sweetie
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I heard the rumors, Danny
So stop that talkin' Danny
Danny, c'mon now

She said, doobie-doobie-doo Danny
She said, doobie-doobie-doo Danny
