Turn Me Loose - Mort Shuman

Turn Me Loose

Mort Shuman

(Doc Pomus - Mort Shuman, UK DECCA F 11184, 1959)

Turn me loose, turn me loose I say
I'm so tired of the game you play
I'm just another clown you've got hangin' 'round
So turn me loose

Set me free, set me free today
Break the chain, so I can get away
You're laughin' while I'm cryin'
Livin' while I'm dyin'
So turn me loose (turn me loose, ooh-ahh)

I should have known from the start
You collect broken hearts
That's how, how you get your kicks
I thought I would mean more to you
But you broke my heart too
Turn me loose, turn me loose, turn me loose, turn me loose

I said turn me loose, turn me loose I say
Oh what a price, what a price you made me pay
I've shed a thousand tears
Wasted my best years
So turn me loose (turn me loose, ooh-ahh)

I should have known from the start
You collect broken hearts
That's how, how, how you get your kicks
I thought I'd mean more to you
But you broke my heart too
Turn me loose, turn me loose, turn me loose, turn me loose

Oh, turn me loose, turn me loose I say
Oh what a price, what a price you made me pay
I've shed a thousand tears
Wasted my best years
So turn me loose (ah-ah-ah-aah)
