ROUGH CUT
(M. Vernon - M. Witham)
JOHNNY & THE ROCCOS (Lolita, 1983)

[Chorus]
My baby's been dealin' the rough cut (rough cut)
My baby's been dealin' the rough cut (rough cut)
My baby's been dealin' the rough cut (rough cut)
My baby's been dealin' the rough cut (rough cut)
She deals that rough cut, ooh yes siree

Well, all dressed up and ready to go
To find I'm jilt, because the girl don't show
Wait a minute buddy, have to wait some more time
I'm all tied up like a ball of twine

[Chorus]

Standing by the telephone waiting for your call
Half past nine, you haven't called at all
What'd I do? I didn't do a thing
I feel like a yo-yo without a piece of string

[Chorus]
Give me the rough cut!

Well, I made up my mind, I ain't takin' no more
Put on my coat, make out the front door
Find me a girl, who'll treat me nice
A steak and chop suey without any rice


[Chorus x 3]

Brrrrrr!
Rough cut, rough cut...
