You Can't Brush Me Off Lyrics

[1st verse:]
Why don't you just give in?
Just like a Siamese twin
I mean to stick to you
Until you do
I won't take it on the chin
You'll never leave me flat
I'm not a "last year's hat"
That you can cast aside
I've got my pride
And I won't stand for that

[1st refrain:]
You can't brush me off
As you would a speck of powder
You may try but you can't brush me off

You can't shout me down
You can yell but I'll yell louder
You may try but you can't brush me off

You can say you're out but I'll keep phoning
You can tell me goodbye
You can tell me but I
Won't go
No

You can't leave me cold
As you would a plate of chowder
You may try but you can't brush me off

[2nd verse:]
What is this all about?
You've got me wrong, no doubt
I give you all my time
Believe me, I'm
Not looking for some way out
I want you for my wife
Sharing my care and strife
And that may not be fun
For when it's done
You're stuck with me for life

[2nd refrain:]
You can't brush me off
As you would a poor relation
You may try but you can't brush me off

You can't leave me flat
Like a train down at the station
You may try but you can't brush me off

You can drop a hint but I won't take it
You may injure my pride
Still I'll never decide
To go
No

You can't send me out
As you would an invitation
You may try but you can't brush me off

[3rd refrain:]
You can't brush me off
As you would a fresh mosquito
You may try but you can't brush me off

You can't rub me out
Like a spot on my tuxedo
You may try but you can't brush me off

You can cut me dead but I won't mind it
You may injure my pride
Still I'll never decide
To go
No

You can't drop me fast
As you would a live torpedo
You may try but you can't brush me off

[4th refrain:]
You can't brush me off
Like a colored pullman porter
You may try but you can't brush me off

You can't lock me out
Like a frightened farmer's daughter
You may try but you can't brush me off

You can drop a hint but I won't take it
You can tell me bad news
I intend to refuse
To go
No

You can't give me back
As you would a leaded quarter
You may try but you can't brush me off

[Possible coda:]
You can't brush me off as you would your aunt
'Cause you can't
No, you can't
You can't brush me off
