You may try, but you can't brush me off (That's what you think) You can't lock me out (Hah, double talk, huh?) Like a frightened farmer's daughter (Have you heard this one?) Now wait, oh, you can't brush me off (Can't blame me for tryin') You can drop a hint, but I won't take it You can tell me bad news I intend to refuse to go (I'll run ya right out of town) Oh no, you can't give me back As you would a leaden quarter You may try, but you can't brush me off (Oh, I know) ******************** As performed at Carnegie Hall in 1966: Why don't you please give in Just like a Siamese twin I mean to stick to you Until you do I won't take it on the chin You'll never leave me flat I'm not a last year's hat That you can cast aside I've got my pride And I won't stand for that You can't brush me off As you would a speck of powder You may try, but you can't brush me off You can't shout me down You can yell, but I'll yell louder You may try, but you can't brush me off You can say you're out, but I'll keep phoning You can tell me goodbye You can tell me, but I won't go No, you can't leave me cold As you would a plate of chowder You may try, but you can't brush me off (What is this all about) (You've got it wrong, no doubt) (What's all this brushin' off) (Stop rushin' off) (Stop lookin' for some way out) (He wants you for his wife) (Sharing his care and strife) (And that may not be fun) (For when it's done) (You're stuck with him for life) You can't brush me off As you would a poor relation You may try, but you can't brush me off (You can try, but you can't brush him off) You can't leave me flat Like a train down at the station You may try, but you can't brush me off (Don't leave him at the side of the tracks) You can drop a hint, but I won't take it You may injure my pride Still I'll never decide to go No, you can't send me out As you would an invitation You may try, but you can't brush me off (You can't brush her off like any invitation, noooo) (No, you can't brush, brush her off) (As you would a speck of powder) (You can try, but you can't brush her off) (You can't shout him down) (You can yell, but he'll yell louder) (You can try, but you can't brush him off) (He can drop a hint) Well, I won't take it (He can tell you bad news) I intend to refuse You intend to refuse (She intends to refuse to go, no, no) (You can't leave her cold like a plate of chowder) He can try (He can try) She can try (Try and try) (But when he dances close to you) (You know it thrills you through and through) (So then start brushin' it off) (You know you won't) (You'll never brush her off) (You know you'll never brush her off) (You can't brush her off) (You can't brush her off like a speck of powder) (Yell her down, 'cause she'll yell louder) (Let her out like a drop of water) (Or leave her flat like a farmer's daughter) (You can't brush her off as you would her Aunt) (You can't, no, you can't, you can't brush her off) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2013)
