"Hard To Handle" as written by Otis Redding, Alvertis Isbell, Allen Alvoid Jr. Jones and Y ....
Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I have got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on
You gotta' come back for more

Boys will come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now, yessir'am

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man of great experience
I know you've got another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand don't be afraid
I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertising love for free
So you can place your ad with me

Boys will come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now, yessir'am

Yeah
Hard to handle now
Oh baby

Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I've got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on you
You got to come a-runnin' back for more

Boys will come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now, yessir'am

Hard
Hard to handle now
Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Boys will come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now, yessir'am

Yeah
So hard to handle now
Oh yeah

Baby
Good lovin'
Baby, baby
Ohh, good lovin'
I need good lovin'
I got to have it, oh yeah
Yeah
So hard to handle, now, yeah

    General CommentWritten and originally recorded by Otis Redding. His version was released in 1968, the year after his death. I think this version is better too.

    General CommentHe wants a girl who has a boyfriend and Otis is telling the girl "I can give you what you want" take a chance with me baby none of this saying he'll love you then use her. But at the same time I think he's saying jump in bed with me "lemme light your candle now"
