Lyric of the Week: I CAN’T GET PROTECTION

Updated: Oct 20

I can’t get protection

I can’t get protection

I can’t get protection

I can’t get protection

When all my crazy dreams

Get torn apart at the seams

I can’t get protection

When I’m playing in a band

And no one can understand

I can’t get protection

When the girl I don’t wanna meet

Comes walking up the street

I just wanna duck in an alley and hide away

She sees me and gives a smile

But she just cramps my style

But there’s nowhere to run and she won’t get out of my way

I can’t get protection

I can’t get protection

I can’t get protection

I can’t get protection

I can’t get protection

When I’m trying not to kiss her

And you know I can’t resist her

I can’t get protection

When I’m stuck with one line

And I can’t make it rhyme

I can’t get protection

When I’m feeling pathetic

And no one’s sympathetic

I’m just like a dog in a trap letting out a wild yelp

When I get really nervous

My brain needs some service

‘Cause anyone singing the blues is in a deep pit yelling for help

I can’t get protection

When the summer’s hot and lazy

And the heat drives me crazy

I can’t get protection

When my fever gets higher and higher

And I’m burnin’ like a fire

I can’t get protection

(Can’t get) Unwanted advances!

(Can’t get)

Pretentious romances!

(Can’t get) Another night in her arms ...

(Can’t get) ... suckered again by her charms!

(Can’t get) She captures me without warning!

(Can’t get) I hate myself in the morning!

(Can’t get) From this love and affection ...

(Can’t get) ... I need some protection!

The girlfriend from hell. Maybe you recognize her.

Every guy, at some point, has a Girlfriend From Hell. I can go on and on about mine, but ... why relive all that? Suffice it to say that the description given in this song suits her well.

Late one night while on guard duty during the second half of my army service in Israel, I thought of the last time I had fallen for her charms, such as they were. I vowed never to let that happen again and wrote this song. Several years later, back in the USA, I added it to my band's setlist and it often became the set closer whenever we performed. My musical partner Izzy Kieffer and I recorded it for our album by REALITY SHOCK, There's A Voice, released 2002. I still do pretty well with it when I play it solo as well.
