Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Now I would if I could but honey I can't no more
Yes I would if I could but honey I can't no more
I can't get no cooperation, the way I did before
Verse 2
Why I would if I could but you've got me in your power
Yes I would if I could but you've got me in your power
Yes I'd do it in a minute, but I'd rather take a solid hour
Verse 3
Now you're gettin' slow an' easy
You're as patient as can be
You don't ask for too much lovin' and
that's just what's botherin' me
Tell me papa papa, just what are we waitin' for
Yes I would if I could but I don't get a chance no more
Verse 4
Now I listened to your lies
They don't mean a thing to me
They might satisfy a square
But I'm too hip you see
So it's back to the apple, and find me a better man
Well I would if I could, but damn if I think I can
