These 2 songs were released as a single in 1967 and credited to Rod Riguez. ‘You’d Like To Admit It’ transcribed by Glenn Coggin, January 2005.
I’LL SLIP AWAY And I’ll forget about the girl that said noThen I’ll tell who I want where to goAnd I’ll forget about your lies and deceitAnd your attempts to be so discreetMaybe today, yeahI’ll slip away
And you can keep your symbols of successThen I’ll pursue my own happinessAnd you can keep your clocks and routinesThen I’ll go mend all my shattered dreamsMaybe today, yeahI’ll slip away
Cause you’ve been down on me for too longAnd for too long I just put you onNow I’m tired of lying and I’m sick of tryingCause I’m losing who I really amAnd I’m not choosing to be like themAnd if you get bored or got lonelinessOr it’s dislike for me you expressI won’t care if you’re right or you’re wrongI won’t care cause you see I’ll be gone
Maybe today, yeahI’ll slip away
Maybe today, yeah (I’ll slip away)Maybe today, yeahMaybe today, yeahMaybe today, yeah
YOU’D LIKE TO ADMIT ITYou were the girl that laughed when I triedYou were the one that smiled when I sighedYou didn’t like my style or my songsNow tables turned and you find you were wrong So when I see you again I’ll just grinCos’ I’m glad that you had better sense than to mess up my life. You haven’t changed and I know that you won’tYou stare at my back, then pretend that you don’tYou were too cute and correct to be mineNow I’m kinda glad that we didn’t find time So when I see you again I’ll just grinAnd you know why it is, cos’ I’m glad that you’re his and not mine I’m in the mood to reveal how I feelYou weren’t that sharp, but you had some appealNow there’s a hint of regret in your eyesBut you won’t tell me, and your smile’s your disguise So when I see you again I’ll just grin Cos’ I’m happy I’m here and that you’re way the heck over there!
