I Can't Function - Walter Becker

 

I Can't Function by Walter Becker


I'm workin' hard from mornin' to night
My shoulder bent into the wheel
I get home, you start to run me down
How do you think it makes me feel?
Your lashing tongue, it hurts my soul
I start to think and then I lose control
I'm not movin' like I know I should
But feelin' like I like to feel
And I spent my days just foolin' around
I can't function, honey, when you run me down
Oh, darlin' don't you run me down
I gotta make a little fortune
So I can bring it on home to you
You're only hurtin' yourself, my friend
Treatin' me the way you do
My hands are tied behind my back
I'm drinking dinner from a paper sack
Everyday is the fourth in July
And I'm nothin' but an April Fool
Well, I spent my days just cruising around
I can't function, honey, when you run me down
Oh, darlin' don't you run me down
I'm half a man with half a heart
I hear you laugnin' then I fall apart
I'd like to put it on the table
But I'm lost before I even start
You do me wrong and it's bringin' me down
My idle ways are the talk of the town
You make me feel like a do nothing clown
I can't function, honey, when you run me down
Oh, darlin' don't you run me down
Oh, darlin' don't you run me down
Yea, don't you run me down, darlin'
It's not polite in public, public
Down here in front of Abraham and his brother
I was a W now, I'm an L
Something wrong with my playin' drums
He was right
