Please Don't Bring Me Down

(version 2) Kidd, 1978 (France), 1992 (UK)Recorded: 25-05-61

Johnny Kidd (vocals) - Alan Caddy (rthm) - Brian Gregg (bass) - Clem Catinni (drums)

This original recording was made the same day as "Bad Case Of Love" and "You Can Have Her" and features the line "When the time comes that you want to go". This was replaced with "If the time comes when I've got to go" for the time the second and more refined version of this song, although whether that is just a mistake in the studio remains unknown

 
When you're looking for someone new
Kid me on for a month or two
But please don't bring me down
Oh please don't bring me down
     Take all the liberties you want to
     But keep on kidding, don't say we're through
     But please don't bring me down

If you're going out with other guys
I like it much better if you tell me lies
But please don't bring me down
Oh please don't bring me down
     When the time comes that you want to go
     I'd rather be two-timed than have to know
     But please don't bring me down

(instrumental break)

     Take all the liberties you want to
     Keep on kidding, don't say we're through
     But please don't bring me down
     Oh please don't bring me down
     Woah please don't bring me down
