Clapton, Eric - I Ain't Gonna Stand For It Lyrics

I don't want to believe what they're telling me;
Somebody's been picking in my cherry tree.
I don't want to mistrust somebody by mistake.
Somebody's been digging 'round in my cake.

And I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby, nah nah.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby, nah nah, nah nah.

I don't want to believe what somebody said;
Somebody said somebody's shoe was under my bed.
I don't want to cause nobody no bodily harm.
Somebody's been rubbing on my good luck charm.


Oh, my my my my my my.
Oh, my my my my my my.
Oh, my my my my my my.
Oh, my my my my my my.

[Chorus 2x]

  18. Edwin Rodriguez

    Ibai Unanue

    way better than Stevie Wonder's

  19. Edson Pinheiro

    Stevie Wonder the best original

  20. Izzat TheArtOfClassicIndonesia

    No offense to clapton lovers cause i am too. But looks like he use auto tune for this song.

  21. D Me

    Nice version, and Clapton is an icon, but it just doesn't have the snap, crackle & pop that Stevie Wonders has.


    Eric Clapton es una paleta de cientos de tonos, desde el reggae, hasta el blues rasgado, pero esta es una de sus facetas que adoro. Un pop con una melodía poderosa, una canción que parece suya, alguien capaz de hacer una versionn mejor que la de Stevie Wonder, su voz en su registro más bajo y su maravillosa guitarra suelta, qué esta ahí para el que quiera entenderla.

  23. Doris Quezada

    Omg i not love you stupid

  24. Blues Rain

    "I Ain't Gonna Stand For It..........

  25. Michele EM

    I just love this video and cover! ❤️❤️

  26. Adolph Lopez

    now besides Eric Clapton's singing, I've believe that it even sounds a lot like Stevie Wonder's background singing.

  27. Adolph Lopez

    now Eric Clapton is the next to that he even can't stand for it like that from Stevie Wonder who couldn't stand it. if 5000 can stand for it, why can't Stevie and Eric stand for it.

  28. Anderson

    Esse é o cara grande ERIC

  29. Lia Marques

    There have been some good covers of Stevie Wonder's songs, but this is the only time anyone's been as good as Stevie. (Why haven't these two legends worked together?)

  60. The Pad

    questioning "bigmacake" is "digging 'round my cake" yes no don't know. now know but friends playing together
    no problem. but, comment made by Eric Clapton, with 2016 release date photo is/waz posted in 2014 is now gone and another is on several totally different threads. sldc met a bass player that's from 80s and uses the percussive technique. cannot remember but, think either Mark or Mike and before the bass played the drums and brought style of that
    effect of thumb slapping as a way to impersonate the drums voice and he's a brit, from the Isle if Wight forgot his name but waz in
    Level 42, also he is the frontman for them. ok 😒😎💛

    SLDC sldc

  61. Stephanie Donahue

  62. R. Nathaniel

    Sheeeeeesh!! Clapton beast mode icing on top of a perfect Stevie Wonder foundation.

  63. Stephanie Donahue

    I felt like I was being told to justify every word ever put on
    Thread. Not to upset you that is why sought refuge was
    being attacked all sides. Ok sld

  64. Stephanie Donahue

    OK, WE CLEAR.???!!!?!?!

  65. Robert Renato

    seems Santana a lot
