You thought the idea was good
To hang around in my neighborhood
Thought it was a good idea
You even thought it might advance your career

Thought that!
You thought that time was on your side, and you!
And you can go along for the ride
Thought you wouldn't go too far
Your thoughts have got you where you are

Never had a crystal ball
Never promised you at all
Never promised you a thing
Never knew what things would bring

It can't hurt, it can't hurt
Not gonna hurt you doll!
It hasn't helped, it hasn't helped
Hasn't helped you at all!

You believe that being where you've been
Was a way that you could walk right in
And you were sure that going where you've gone
Was a way that you could get up on

Had to!
You had to do what you had to do, and you!
Bit off more than you could chew
Open you're eyes and look at where you're at
Shut your mouth and swallow that

Never had a crystal ball
Never promised you at all
Never promised you a thing
Never knew what things would bring

It can't hurt, it can't hurt
Not gonna hurt you doll!
It hasn't helped, it doesn't help
Has it helped you at all?!

I tried, I tried, I tried, I tried
I can't seem to get through
Yo Dennis man, see if she'll listen to you

Aaahh!
It can't hurt, it can't hurt
Not gonna hurt you doll!
It doesn't help, it doesn't help
Has it helped you at all?!

It can't hurt, no it can't hurt
No it can't hurt you doll!
It doesn't help, it hasn't helped
It hasn't help you at all!
