"Can't Get Clean" as written by and Hugo Peretti George Weiss....
I scrubbed it, I scraped it, I scoured
With cleansers of nuclear power
I spent all my time in the shower
I lathered for hours and hours

I was trying to get rid of it
Trying to wash away your sweat, your spit
Trying to take away the things we did
Take a look at me 'cause

Now all that's left is flesh and bone
At night I sleep raw and alone
And no matter what I do it seems
That I can't get clean, I can't get clean

It's grimy, it's mucky, it's dirty
To think of the ways that you hurt me
Betrayal does not come off softly
I'll wash 'til my skin all comes off me

'Cause I'm trying to get rid of it
Trying to wash away your sweat, your spit
Trying to take away the things we did
Take a look at me 'cause

Now all that's left is flesh and bone
At night I sleep raw and alone
And no matter what I do it seems
That I can't get clean, I can't get clean

And it's more than skin deep
Oh, whoa

Now all that's left is flesh and bone
At night I sleep raw and alone
And no matter what I do it seems
That I can't get clean, I can't get clean
