Total plays on over the last 6 months
    I bought my baby a red radio
    He played it all a go-go a go-go
    He liked to dance to it down in the streets
    He said he loved me but he loved the beat
    But when I switch on I rotate the dial

    Too Much pressure, too much pressure, too much pressure, too much pressure
    Too much pressure, this pressure got to stop
    Too much pressure, it's getting to my head
    Too much pressure, they're giving me hard times
    Too much pressure, my man made me sad

    They ask if you're all right

    Last night when I told you all that stuff
    About the way things are
    You didn`t understand a word
    But you said you did
    Now I`m not the honest Joe I might seem
