Lowdown-Boz Skaggs 1976

“Lowdown”

Baby’s into runnin’ round
Hangin’ with the crowd
Putting your business in the street
Talkin’ out loud
Sayin’ you bought her this and that
And how much you done spent
I swear she must believe
Its all heaven sent
Hey boy
You better bring the chick around
To the sad sad truth
The dirty lowdown

(Oooh oooh
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)
Taught her how to talk like that
(Oooh oooh..
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)
Gave her that big idea

Nothin’ you can’t handle
Nothin’ you ain’t got
Put your money on the table
And drive it off the lot
Turn on that old lovelight
And turn a maybe to a yes
Same old schoolboy game
Got you into this mess
Hey son
You better get back to town
Face the sad old truth
The dirty lowdown

(Oooh oooh
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)
Put those ideas in your head
(Oooh oooh
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)

Yeah
Come on back down to earth son
Dig the low low low low lowdown

You ain’t got to be so bad
Got to be so cold
This dog eat dog existence
Sure is gettin’ old
Got to have a Jones for this
Jones for that
This runnin’ with the Jones’s boy
Just ain’t where it’s at
You gonna come back around
To the sad sad truth..
The dirty lowdown

(Oooh oooh
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)
Got you thinking like that boy
(Oooh oooh
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who)

I wonder wonder wonder wonder who
Said I wonder wonder wonder wonder who

Oh look out for that lowdown
That dirty dirty dirty dirty lowdown
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who
Ooooh hooo
I wonder who got you thinking like that…
