"So Tough" as written by and Gary Mears....
He had fun experience
Nothing he does ever makes sense
He is only curious
Don't take it serious

So tough
You can't take anymore now you're getting weak
So tough
Don't start playing hide and seek
So hard
Why do you think he got like that?
So hard
Don't think about it much 'cause it's just rut

You had fun experience
Nothing he does ever makes sense
He is only curious
Don't take it serious

So strong
They say you're acting like a star
So strong
They say not everything's wonderbar
Too long
You want money, girls urgently
Too long
Too much, too soon you wait and see
Too much
You hang around her 'cause she's a good mate
Too much
Milkshakes and cherry cheesecake
Too fast
They want to stop you having kicks
Slow down
Don't fuck things up by getting sick... again

You had fun experience
Nothing he does ever makes sense
He is only curious
Don't take it serious

So tough
You can't take anymore now you're getting weak
So tough
Don't start playing hide and seek
So hard
Why do you think he got like that?
So hard
Don't think about it much 'cause it's just a rut

You had fun experience
Nothing he does ever makes sense
He is only curious
Don't take it serious

    General CommentFrom what I've read, if the Slits were talking about men, they were probably referring to men in the early London punk scene. Supposedly this one is about Sid Vicious and Johnny Rotten.

    Lyric CorrectionThe lyrics here reflect the Peel Session version of the song. The album version goes:

    He had fun experience
    Nothing he does ever makes sense
    He is only curious
    Don't take it serious

    So tough
    You can't take anymore, now you're getting weak
    So tough
    Don't stop playing hide and seek
    So hard
    Why do you think he got like that?
    So hard
    Don't think about it much 'cause it's just a rut

    You had fun experience
    Nothing he does ever makes sense
    He is only curious
    Don't take it serious

    So strong
    They say you're acting like a star
    So strong
    They say not everything's wunderbar
    Too long
    You want money, girls urgently
    Too long
    Too much too soon, you wait and see

    Too much
    You hang around her 'cause she's a good mate
    Too much
    Milkshake and cherry cheesecake
    Too hard
    They want to stop you having kicks
    Slow down
    Don't fuck things up by getting sick...
    Again.

    You had fun experience
    Nothing he does ever makes sense
    He is only curious
    Don't take it serious

    So tough
    You can't take anymore, now you're getting weak
    So tough
    Don't stop playing hide and seek
    So hard
    Why do you think he got like that?
    So hard
    Don't think about it much 'cause it's just a rut

    You have fun experience
    Nothing he does ever makes sense
    He is only curious
    Don't take it serious
