I Can’t Function Songtext

I'm working hard from mornin' 'til night
My shoulder bendin' to the wheel

How do you think it makes me feel?

Your lashin' tongue, it hurts my soul
I start to thinkin' and I lose control

I'd like to put it on the table
But I'm lost before I even start

I can't function, honey, when you run me down
Oh darlin', don't you run me down
Oh darlin', don't you run me down

(spoken)
Hey, don't you run me down darlin'
It's not polite
In public!
In public?
Down there in front of Abraham & Strauss?
I seen it
I was a W, now I'm an L
Somethin' wrong with my…
