The sly, slick, and the wicked
The lost generation
Young girl, be true now (be true)
To the boy who really loves you
Don't do him wrong, 'cause he'll pick up his shoes and walk
And say it's all your fault
(beware, young girls)
You've got to beware, baby, baby
(beware, young girls)
Oh, you've got to (watch out)
Keep him from the hands of the wicked
You've got to (look out)
Look out, baby, baby, ah yeah
(hold on to your one-way ticket)
'Cause true love only comes, it seems, one time
Don't miss that boat or you might be left behind
If you've got a good man and you blow his mind, baby
I'm gonna leave you with this line--and that line is
(the sly, the slick, the wicked, child)
They'll never make it, baby
(the sly, the slick, the wicked, child)
No, no, no--they all try to fake ya
'Cause the sly--he's got a fly, fly alibi
For all the unnecessary tears that a woman like you might cry
The slick--he thinks he's so, so quick
And he'll try to pull the wool over your eyes
But remember--there's one more
And he's the wicked--he shows you a good time
He's gonna gain your confidence, baby--and he'll leave you behind
Girl, remember
(the sly, the slick, the wicked, child)
They'll never make it, baby, no, no, no
(the sly, the slick, the wicked, child)
I want you to remember this song...
