Electric Light Orchestra - Don't Bring Me Down Lyrics




You got me runnin' goin' out of my mind,
You got me thinkin' that I'm wastin' my time.
Don't bring me down, no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

You wanna stay out with your fancy friends.
I'm tellin' you it's got to be the end,
Don't bring me down, no no no no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

Don't bring me down, groos
Don't bring me down, groos
Don't bring me down, groos
Don't bring me down.

What happened to the girl I used to know?
You let your mind out somewhere down the road,
Don't bring me down, no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

You're always talkin' 'bout your crazy nights,
One of these days you're gonna get it right.
Don't bring me down, no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

Don't bring me down, groos
Don't bring me down, groos
Don't bring me down, groos
Don't bring me down.

You're lookin' good just like a snake in the grass,
One of these days you're gonna break your glass.
Don't bring me down, no no no no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

You got me shakin' got me runnin' away
You got me crawlin' up to you everyday,
Don't bring me down, no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

  56. Toby Williams Photography

    Bloody Marcel Proust. I concur!!

  57. Krisen-Manager

    So guys here is the explanation for that word Bruce or Groosse : A common mondegreen in the song is the perception that, following the title line, Lynne shouts "Bruce!". In the liner notes of the ELO compilation Flashback and elsewhere, Lynne has explained that he is singing a made-up word, "Grooss", which some have suggested sounds like the Swiss/German expression "Gruß," meaning "greetings." Lynne has explained that originally he did not realize the meaning of the syllable, and he just used it as a temporary placekeeper to fill a gap in the lyrics, but upon learning the German meaning he decided to leave it in. After the song's release, so many people had misinterpreted the word as "Bruce" that Lynne actually began to sing the word as "Bruce" for fun at live shows.
