Taking Notes and Stealing Quotes on this song

Cover-version

* 

 

I told on you

íCos I heard you singing

Gone cold on you

íCos you would be the kingpin

I know you were planning

For your induction

The flames you were fanning

Meant my destruction

 

I told on you

íCos I heard you praying

Iím not sold on you

I knew what you were saying

I knew you were plotting

For your takeover

The notes you were jotting

On the way from Dover

 

     (I told) I been counting all the things that you do

     (I told) Building up my dossier of clues

     (Gone cold) Every day another turn of the screw

     And thatís why Ö

 

I told on you

íCos you changed the wiring

I got a hold on you

Now you can hear that siren

I know you were scheming

Down by the river

The genes you were streaming

Sure made me shiver

 

     (I told) I been counting all the things that you do

     (I told) Building up my dossier of clues

     (Gone cold) Every day another turn of the screw

     And thatís why, thatís why

     I felt I had to tell on you

 

     (I told) I been counting (on you) all the things you do

     (I told) Building up (on you) my dossier of clues

     (Gone cold) Every day another turn of the screw

     Thatís why, thatís why

     I felt I had to tell on you

 

I told on you Ö

Gone cold on you Ö
