Crushed in the arms...
Crushed in the arms of a bear.
Crushed in the arms...
Crushed in the arms of a bear.
I strain...
I strain...
I strain...
I strain...

Now I could never fall in love.
And feeling such a thrill
Why don’t you anger me, anger me, I will.
Oh... Why don’t you anger me?
(crushed in the arms)

Now I could never fall in love. (i strain)
And feeling such a person. (i strain)
Anger me. You anger me.
Strangle me. You strangle me.
Strangle me... and I strain...

And I strain... (of a bear)
And I strain... (crushed in the arms)
And I strain... (of a bear)
And I strain... (crushed in the arms)
And I strain...

Why don’t you just go...
Why don’t you just go...
Why don’t you just go...

Strangle me... Strangle me...
Oh I strain...
Strangle me... Strangle me...
Oh I strain...
Strangle me... Strangle me...
Why don’t you just go?
Strangle me... Strangle me...
Why don’t you just go?

    General CommentThis is a great song and this is my impression of it. He is feeling the strain of a realtionship gone sour. He isn't feeling what was once there and needs to be angered in order to end things.

    General Commenti think this is talking about how he's torn. the relationship is faded n over, but he feels like there's some illusion that both of em see where the relationship still exists. He wants to be relieved from all the emotions she's sending through him cuz "it's strangling" him n he just wants her to go so he can move on too

    General CommentThis is The Jam. Can I say that? I am legally not allowed to listen to this ditty while driving. This song gets me drunk, and I don't have the Designated Dave hook-up.
