Beg, Borrow and Steal

This song is by The Rare Breed and appears on the compilation Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968 (1972).

You threw me out the night before last
And now you want me back in your arms again
You think I'm a fool, you treat me like dirt
You pull the string and hope I will be your friend

But I know what's on your mind, so I'd rather stay out in the street, without a dime
And I'd rather Beg, Borrow and Steal, I'd rather Beg Borrow and Steal
I'd rather Beg, Borrow and Steal, than go back to you, go back to you
Than go back to you, go back to you, than go back to you, go back to you

How long 'dja think I'd hang around pretending not to see the tricks you pulled on me
There's only so much a man can take before his life turns into a
Tragedy. So I'm gettin' out now while I
Can, 'cause I don't want to crawl
I want to walk out like a man

And I'd rather Beg, Borrow and Steal, I'd rather Beg Borrow and Steal
I'd rather Beg, Borrow and Steal, than go back to you, go back to you
Than go back to you, go back to you, than go back to you, go back to you
I'd rather Beg, Borrow and Steal, I'd rather Beg, Borrow and Steal
