messin’ with the kid lyrics – blues brothers

what’s this i hear
there’s a whole lotta talk
the people say you try to quit the kid

hey yeah
tell me what you did
you can call it what you want
but i call it messin’ with the kid

now the kid plays hot
and hot don’t pay
i say what i mean, i mean what i say

yeah, yeah
tell me what you did
you can call it what you want
but i call it messin’ with the kid

well tell me you love me
you tell me a lie
but i know i love ya baby, ’til the day i die

hey yeah
tell me what you did
you can call it what you want
but i call it messing with the kid

elwood, elwood!
-yeah?
you wanna mess with the kid?
-nah jake, i don’t wanna mess with the kid…
yeah i know, i know that. how about you guys back here?
you wanna mess with the kid? any of you guys? how about you people out there
you wanna mess with the kid?

gonna take the kid’s car
drive around town
tell everybody trying to put him down

hey yeah
tell me what you did
you can call it what you want
i call it messin’ with the kid
