10.  "If You Don't Leave Me Alone (I'm Gonna Find Somebody That Will)."

Written by Delbert McClinton and Sonny Fortner in 1973, recorded by McLinton and Glen Clark, and included on the album Subject To Change, Number 10 is a straightforward--albeit clever--plea for a little space, early 70s style.   The song appears not to be available on the Web;  however, the Subject To Change CD may be purchased at amazon.com and other music sites.

Lyrics

You're scarin' me to death baby with your, your jealous heart
This ain't no way for our romance to start
You keep on telling me to explain myself
'Bout something one of your friends said
About me and somebody else

Your loose-mouth friends, honey
Ain't doin' you no good
And some of them gals you run with
Wouldn't help you if they could

What you do is your business
'Til it starts givin' me chills,
If you don't leave me alone
I'm gonna find somebody that will
I'm gonna find me somebody that will

Well, yeah

Your scarin' me to death baby with your, your jealous heart
This ain't no way for our romance to start
Take it easy baby, don't be so hard on yourself
You know, you're making me nervous causin' danger to my health

What you do is your business
'Til it starts givin' me chills,
If you don't leave me alone, baby
I'm gonna find somebody that will

Gonna find somebody that will
Wha'd you say?
Gonna find somebody that will
Yes, I will
Yes, I will
Gonna find somebody that will
Yes, I will
