I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” is a song by the American duo Daryl Hall and John Oates. Written by Daryl Hall and John Oates, and co-written by Sara Allen, the song was released as the second single from their tenth studio albumPrivate Eyes (1981). The song became the fourth number one hit single of their career on the Billboard Hot 100. It features Charles DeChant on saxophone.

Speaking about the meaning of the lyrics, John Oates has stated that while many listeners may assume the lyrics are about a relationship, in reality, the song, “is about the music business. That song is really about not being pushed around by big labelsmanagers, and agents and being told what to do, and being true to yourself creatively.” This was done intentionally, he explained, to universalize the topic of the song into something everyone could relate to and ascribe personal meaning to in their own way. Naming “Maneater” as another example, he revealed that this was a common theme for the group’s songs.

Easy, ready, willing, overtime
Where does it stop
Where do you dare me
To draw the line
You’ve got the body
Now you want my soul
Don’t even think about it
Say no go

I, I ‘ll do anything
That you want me to do
And I’ll do almost anything
That you want me to, ooh

But I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
No, I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do

I can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that

I can go for being twice as nice
I can go for just repeating
The same old lines
Use the body
Now you want my soul
Ooh, forget about it
Now say no go

I, I’ll do anything
That you want me to do
I’ll do almost anything
That you want me to

But I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do

I can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that

Yeah, I, I’ll do anything
That you want me to do
And I’ll do almost anything
That you want me to

But I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do

I can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
I can’t go for that

No I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no no, no can do
I can’t go for that, (no no no no) no I can’t go for that

I can’t go for that (no can do)
No can’t do
I can’t go for that (no no no no can’t do)
I can’t go for that
I can’t go for that, yeah (no can do)
No, no, no, no, no, no

Oasis , my middle son loves Oasis and by default I learned to too!

© willowdot21 me again 1990s

Don’t Look Back in Anger” is a song by English rock band Oasis. It was written by the band’s guitarist and main songwriter Noel Gallagher. The song was produced by Gallagher and Owen Morris. Released on 19 February 1996 as the fourth single from their second studio album, (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? (1995), it became Oasis’s second single to reach No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart, earning a quadruple-platinum sales certification in the UK. It was the first Oasis single with lead vocals by Noel, who had previously only sung lead on B-sides, instead of his brother Liam. Noel would later sing lead vocals on six more singles.

Noel Gallagher was so excited about the potential of the song when he first wrote it that he used an acoustic set to perform a work-in-progress version, without the second verse and with a few other slight lyrical differences, at an Oasis concert at the Sheffield Arena on 22 April 1995. He said before playing that he’d only written it the previous Tuesday (18 April 1995) and that he didn’t even have a title for it yet.

Noel Gallagher said of the song, “It reminds me of a cross between “All the Young Dudes” and something the Beatles might have done.” Of the character “Sally” referred to in the song, he commented, “I don’t actually know anybody called Sally. It’s just a word that fit, y’know, might as well throw a girl’s name in there.” He explained the song by saying, “It’s about not being upset about the things you might have said or done yesterday, which is quite appropriate at the moment. It’s about looking forward rather than looking back. I hate people who look back on the past or talk about what might have been.”

Slip inside the eye of your mind
Don’t you know you might find
A better place to play
You said that you’d never been
But all the things that you’ve seen
Slowly fade away

So I start a revolution from my bed
‘Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside, summertime’s in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
You ain’t ever gonna burn my heart out

And so Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late
As we’re walking on by
Her soul slides away
But don’t look back in anger
I heard you say

Take me to the place where you go
Where nobody knows
If it’s night or day
But please don’t put your life in the hands
Of a rock and roll band
Who’ll throw it all away

I’m gonna start a revolution from my bed
‘Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside ’cause summertime’s in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
‘Cause you ain’t ever gonna burn my heart out

And so Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late
As she’s walking on by
My soul slides away
But don’t look back in anger
I heard you say

So Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late
As we’re walking on by
Her soul slides away
But don’t look back in anger
I heard you say

So Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late
As she’s walking on by
My soul slides away
But don’t look back in anger
Don’t look back in anger
I heard you say
At least not today

Mm, mm, yeah
Mm

By now I got your bad habits all memorised
Like when I know you need me most
You go and shut me out, figures, you Gemini
And I’m not sayin’ that I’ve got

All of the answers, but
Boy, I’ve been in love before
It’s not always peachy, look, life ain’t that easy
But one thing I know for sure is it

Shouldn’t be this hard
You couldn’t DTR
Oh, wouldn’t it be nice if we could stay friends? But we
Shouldn’t, you know what I
Couldn’t, ‘nough’s enough
If I had your heart, it wouldn’t be this hard

You wonder why suddenly I’m comin’ off indifferent
What you don’t seem to understand is
It’s not anything you said, it’s everything you didn’t
Ooh, oh

Yeah, you, you always answer with
More questions to questions that scare you
We’re not always peachy, look, love ain’t that easy
But one thing I know, I know it for sure that it

Shouldn’t be this hard
You couldn’t DTR
Oh, wouldn’t it be nice if we could stay friends? But we
Shouldn’t, you know what I
Couldn’t, ‘nough’s enough
If I had your heart, it wouldn’t be this hard

I drank too much tonight to not try to call you up
I mean that’s what our phones are for
I’m not one for titles, girl, in other words, terrified
That p- kicked my rules out the door

I could take more shots or I could take you off your blouse
My favorite parts of f- is either when
I’m done or when you’re walkin’ out my house
And you don’t pick up when I call unless I call you mine
But one thing I know is it

Shouldn’t be this hard
You couldn’t DTR
Oh, wouldn’t it be nice if we could stay friends? But we
Shouldn’t, you know what I
Couldn’t, ‘nough’s enough
If I had your heart, it wouldn’t be this hard
Oh-oh-ooh, oh-oh-ooh
Hard, mm

It’s not always peachy, look, love ain’t that easy
But one thing I know for sure is
We (shouldn’t)

The year I got Married the Who had , Won’t get fooled again . That hairstyle was easy to pin down!

©willowdot21 1971

Won’t Get Fooled Again” is a song by the English rock band the Who, written by Pete Townshend. It was released as a single in June 1971, reaching the top 10 in the UK, while the full eight-and-a-half-minute version appears as the final track on the band’s 1971 album Who’s Next, released that August.

Townshend wrote the song as a closing number of the Lifehouse project, and the lyrics criticise revolution and power. To symbolise the spiritual connection he had found in music via the works of Meher Baba and Inayat Khan, he programmed a mixture of human traits into a synthesizer and used it as the main backing instrument throughout the song. The Who tried recording the song in New York in March 1971, but re-recorded a superior take at Stargroves the next month using the synthesizer from Townshend’s original demo. Ultimately, Lifehouse as a project was abandoned in favour of Who’s Next, a straightforward album, where it also became the closing track. It has been performed as a staple of the band’s setlist since 1971, often as the set closer, and was the last song drummer Keith Moon played live with the band.

As well as being a hit, the song has achieved critical praise, appearing as one of Rolling Stone‘s The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It has been covered by several artists, such as Van Halen, who took their version to No. 1 on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart. It has been used for several TV shows and films (most notably CSI: Miami), and in some political campaigns.

We’ll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that’s all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain’t changed
‘Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again, no, no

I’ll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I’ll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie

Do ya?

Yeah

There’s nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Is now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again
Don’t get fooled again, no, no

Yeah
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
