Everybody’s trying to teach me a lesson

But baby, I’ve already been to school

It seems all anybody knows tough love

Just give me the real thing

and I’ll be cool


I’m not a fool for you to suffer

I’m not a bag for you to punch

No sacrifice for you to offer

I’m not a rock for you to launch


Well I’ve been round the block and

I’ve heard people talk and

I can tell when I’m being used

And I’ve been through the mills and

Swallowed bitter pillIs and

I have paid my share of dues


Everybody’s trying to teach me a lesson

But baby, I’ve already been to school

It seems all anybody knows tough love

Just give me the real thing

and I’ll be cool

Tough Love

(Lyrics)

I’m not a mat for you to walk on

I’m not a color in your scheme

I’m not coat for you to try on

I’m not a reason to be mean


Well I’ve been round the block and

I’ve heard people talk and

I can tell when I’m being used

And I’ve been through the mills and

Swallowed bitter pillIs and

I have paid my share of dues


Everybody’s trying to teach me a lesson

But baby, I’ve already been to school

It seems all anybody knows tough love

Just give me the real thing

and I’ll be cool


I’m not here to do your bidding

I’m not a hamster on your wheel

This is a joke, you must be kidding

Why can’t you just be for real


Well I’ve been kicked around and

Knocked down to the ground and

Held down for my point of view

And I have tossed and turned and

Sometimes I’ve been burned and

Fleeced by better thieves than you
