"The Grind" as written by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Marti Frederiksen....
I never thought a first time love would ever last
How could a kiss like that
Knock me flat on my ass

The burning bed
The roses dead
And now I'm dancing with myself

Yeah,
I'm missing you
Just like you want me to
You made me trip into the grind
Now I can't get you off of my mind

Yeah,
Your sweet talking hip shaking wobble gonna blow a man away
Kiss butt, and guess what
Even double crossin' dogs have their day, ha
So forget about, regret about, you're right I ain't afraid to say

Yeah, I'm missing you
Just like you want me to
You made me trip into the grind
Now I can't get you off

And the more I try
Leads to the same old why
You made me slip into the grind
Now I can't get you off of the cloud we was on
And now it's all gone
Tell me why, why, why, why
Why ain't I getting through
Ain't no lie there out of love, love, love

Tell me was it good, for you

Tell me what you want

Yeah, cause I'm missing you
Just like you knew I'd do
You made me trip into the grind
Now I can't get'choo off
And I know I tried
Leads to the same old why
You made me trip into the grind
Now I can't, can't, can't get you
Get you [Repeat: x4]
Get you [Repeat: x3]

Off of my mind

    General CommentMy favorite track off of Honkin' on Bobo (2004); very bluesy combined with Tyler's distinct vocals, great song.

    My OpinionI cannot believe there isn't more comments on this song! It is absolutely amazing. My second all-time favorite Aerosmith song and I know virtually all Aerosmith music. Anyone who doesn't know this song, highly, highly recommended that you look it up and listen to it.
