Lyrics

Well if the same
Thing happened to you
Will you still
Put me through
What you
Put me through
If it happened to you
What if it happened to you

What if it happened
And the man keeps
Shaking you down
But you can't
Get a ride to
His side of town
If it happened to you
Well if it happened to you

*Well if it
Happened to you
Keep it out
Of my shoes
If you're stepping on toes
Keep it out
Of my nose

**'Cause if the
Same thing happened to me
Well it won't
Be as bad
As it used to be

***If it happened to you
If it happened to you
If it happened to you
If it happened to you too
Well if it happened to you

Repeat*
Repeat**

If it happened to you
If it happened to you
What am I going to do
Well if it happened to you
