Lay it on me, baby Lay it on me ‘til it gets right under my skin And the merry mood I’m in Makes way for love I’m walking these streets with a skip in my step My hat’s on the side of my head All down to you I’m acting this way Just like a fish in a babbling brook I’m nibbling at your hook Don’t let me be the one that got away Because you do something fundamental to me That I can almost taste When I get with it there’s not a minute I wanna waste Lay it on me, baby Lay it on me ‘til the room begins to spin And the merry mood I’m in Makes way for love You can’t buy a day this sunny Not for a tower of folding money I dare a cloud to rain on this parade Because bells start ringing and bluebirds singing And I stride the milky way Everytime you give me the sign and look that way Lay it on me, baby Lay it on me ‘til it gets right under my skin And the merry mood I’m in Makes way for love Lay it, lay it on me, baby Lay it on me ‘til the room begins to spin And the merry mood I’m in Makes way for love

Don’t be nice to me I’m undeserving of your kind attention Don’t be nice to me Better you pass me by I just put paid to the chance of love in a million And if you’re nice to me you’ll only have me crying Don’t be nice to me Thank you for the invitation Don’t be nice to me Sorry I can’t stay When I find a rock big enough for me to crawl under I’m gonna hang a sign outside to the world: “stay away” Don’t be nice to me If only life could be Like a walk in the park To the trill of a lark on the wing on high Don’t be nice to me ‘Cause I can’t guarantee That what you’ll find Won’t blow your mind If you’re too kind Don’t be nice to me Yes, I need a ride to the station Don’t be nice to me But I’d rather walk in the rain, yeah Now I know I’m acting like a big galoot And it’ll all work out in time But if you’re nice to me Get ready to see me cry Cry, cry Cry and cry Cry, baby Don’t be nice to me

Here comes that feeling again, and it ain't right That lonely feeling that comes to me at night It hurts to see you in the arms of my friend Here comes that lonely, lonely feeling again I saw you out walking your new love last night Locked in his arm, you were holding him tight Back here in my room, I know where you've been Here comes that lonely, lonely feeling again You can’t fight the feeling I’ve got to get shot of this lonely feel The one that comes around each night when day is done There’ll come a time you’ll find you lonely, but it’s gonna be too late You'll look for me but I won’t be at your garden gate You know it hurts to see you in the arms of my friend Here comes that feeling, lonely feeling Here comes that lonely, lonely feeling again You can’t fight the feeling It hurts me more and more each day Ever since you went away Let me say, I ain’t too proud to beg Baby, I ain’t too proud to beg Down on my knees, begging please I’d give the world for one more squeeze Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely feeling for you

about

Nick Lowe strikes again with a brand new EP, Lay It On Me, where he is once again joined by his gang of masked musicians, Los Straitjackets. The limited edition EP features two new originals from Nick, "Lay It On Me Baby" and "Don't Be Nice to Me," plus a cover of Dorsey Burnette's "Here Comes That Feeling" (made famous by Brenda Lee). Nick's wordplay and razor-sharp lyrics shine bright with the twang-friendly tones of Los Straitjackets behind him.

about

Nick Lowe London, UK

Nick Lowe has made his mark as a producer (Elvis Costello-Graham Parker-Pretenders-The Damned), songwriter of at least three songs you know by heart, short-lived career as a pop star, and a lengthy term as a musicians’ musician. But in his current ‘second act’ as a silver-haired, tender-hearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, he has no equal. ... more
