"Secondhand Love" as written by and Pete Townshend....
Don't bring me secondhand love
Don't bring me secondhand love
I know you went out tonight
Who've you been hanging around with this time?
I don't care if he's black or white
I just don't like his kind.
I don't want your secondhand love
I don't want your secondhand love
I don't want your secondhand love
Don't bring me secondhand love

He's been leaving his scent on you
I can sense it from a mile
All my money is spent on you
But you're still selling your smile
Don't bring me secondhand love
Don't bring me secondhand love
I don't want your secondhand love
I don't want your secondhand love

Give your love, and keep blood between brothers
Give your love, and keep blood between brothers
I don't want your secondhand love

I can guess where you've been tonight
You've been hanging out on the street
Wearing your dress too tight
You're showin' out to anyone you meet
But I don't want your secondhand love
I don't want your secondhand love
Don't bring me your secondhand love
Don't bring me your secondhand love

I want the first call on your kiss
Answer me one question:can you promise me this
I want my defenses laying in your hands
I don't want to rest in the palm of another man
I don't want your secondhand love
Don't want, Don't want, your secondhand love
I don't want, I don't want, your secondhand love
I don't want,I don't want your secondhand love
I don't want,I don't want your secondhand love

    General CommentI always wondered what happened in between "Let My Love Open The Door" from Empty Glass and this song.
    One can only guess it was unpleasant.

    General CommentI gather that in the White City concept, this is about a guy who wants a girl who is a prostitute, maybe he's her boyfriend, maybe she said she doesn't turn tricks anymore, and maybe he doesn't believe her...
    Just remember, this is part of a concept album. It was going to be a movie. Pete had written a script and everything.

    General CommentPete's mother cheated on his father... this is the product of the knowledge of her affair.
