"Ain't Nobody But Me" as written by Roger Hodgson and Richard Davies....
Let me tell you a story that’ll make a change
Let me tell you when I’m way out of range
It’s about a man who’s crueler than me,
So promise not to cause a scene,
Heaven help the one’s you love,
There’s no big need for stars above

Well, you can run, you, know he’ll find you,
It don’t matter now, just look behind you,
You had your warn, and you knew the score,
You got it wrong, and that means war;
So, why’d you have to treat me rough,
Your explanation’s not enough

Ain’t nobody but me,
Gonna lie for you, gonna die for you;
Ain’t no fish in the sea,
Gonna sigh for you, gonna try for you,
Gonna lie for you, gonna die for you,
Wooh

You see, I got a mental disposition,
Sometimes, I’m mean, sometimes I’m vicious;
I’m Dr. Jekyll, I’m Mr. Hyde,
So if you wanna stay alive,
Just give me all you’ve got to give,
And then perhaps I’ll let you live

Ain’t nobody but me,
Gonna lie for you, gonna die for you,
Ain’t no fish in the sea,
Gonna sigh for you, gonna try for you,
Gonna lie for you, gonna die for you;
Gonna sigh for you, gonna try for you,
Gonna lie for you, gonna die for you

(hush) now baby, stop your crying,
(oh yes) I know that I’ve been lying,
(hush) now baby, stop your crying
(oh yes) I know that I’ve been lying
(hush) now baby, stop your crying
(oh yes) I know that I’ve been lying
(hush) now baby, stop your crying
(oh yes) I know that I’ve been lying
(hush) now baby, stop your crying,
Ahhhhh

    General CommentLyric Check straight from the Songbook published in 1975 that was ignored when they remastered the CD:

    "It's about a man who is cruel and mean"
    "There's no where 'neath the stars above"
    "You had your warning, you knew the score"
    "You see I've got a double disposition"

    Not as bad as "A Soapbox Opera."
