MANNY FREISER: Music

KICKS

(FREISER)
December 15, 2017
Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil

Maybe it's time for this classic to come back as the theme for the movement against the opioid epidemic!

Girl, you thought you found the answer
On that magic carpet ride last night
But when you wake up in the mornin'
The world still gets you uptight
Well, there's nothin' that you ain't tried
To fill the emptiness inside
When you come back down, girl
Still ain't feelin' right


Kicks just keep gettin' harder to find
And all your kicks ain't bringin' you peace of mind
Before you find out it's too late, girl
You better get straight

No, but not with kicks, you just need help, girl

 

Well you think you're gonna find yourself
A little piece of paradise
But it ain't happened yet, so girl, you better think twice
Don't you see no matter what you do
You'll never run away from you
And if you keep on runnin' you'll have to pay the price

Don't it seem like


Kicks just keep gettin' harder to find
And all your kicks ain't bringin' you peace of mind
Before you find out it's too late, girl
You better get straight

 

No you don’t need kicks

To help you face the world each day

That world goes nowhere

I’m gonna help you save yourself another way
