"Beating Around The Bush" as written by and Ronald Belford Scott Angus Mckinnon Young....
Smiling face and loving eyes
But you keep on telling me all those lies
How do you expect me to believe
Honey I ain't that naive

Baby I got my eye on you
'Cause you do all the things I want you to
Stop your cryin' and dry your tears
I ain't that wet behind the ears

You can throw me lefts
And you can throw me rights
But where was you last night
Beating around the bush

Wish I knew what's on your mind
Why you being so unkind?
Remember those nights we spent alone
Talkin' on the telephone?

Thoughts of you goin' through my brain
You told me that you felt the same
You said that you loved me too
But tell me who was there with you

I was talking birds and you was talking bees
And was he down on his knees
Beatin' 'round the bush

You're the meanest woman I've ever known
Sticks and stones won't break my bones
I know what you're looking for
You eaten your cake, you want some more
I'm gonna give you just a one more chance
Try to save our romance
Done everything I'm gonna do
The rest is up to you

You can chew it up
And you can spit it out
Let it all hang out
Beating around the bush, oh

Chew it up, spit it out
Let it all hang out,
Beating around the bush

    General Commentno joke? Beating Around the Bush and no ones commented yet? holy shit dude!

    There is no other AC/DC song where Bon and Angus play off each other so perfectly, this song is right up there with my favorites.

    ive almost given up on humanity, THIS IS BEATING AROUND THE BUSH! its fucking rock n' roll at its purest. dirty, grungy, juvenile........ its bliss.

    General CommentOne of my favorite AC/DC songs, Bon's voice is at his best here, one of the coolest riffs I've heard and probably the greatest Angus solo I've yet to hear. An underrated and solid song! If you like this check out the song Back Seat Confidential on their Bonfire collection.

    General CommentFuck sake guys...

    "And he was down upon his knees
    Beating around the bush"

    About a messed up relationship yes, but like a lot of AC/DC songs is a big big double entendre. This one happens to be about EATING PUSSY

    Or munchng rug. munching carpet. Whatever.

    Awesome song that fills me full of fire and makes me laugh at the same time...
