I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)

If someone asks me to do a job I couldn’t do, I will play this song, “I can’t go for that!”


Easy, ready, willing, overtime
Where does it stop
Where do you dare me
To draw the line
You’ve got the body
Now you want my soul
Don’t even think about it
Say no go

I, I ‘ll do anything
That you want me to do
And I’ll do almost anything
That you want me to, ooh

But I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
No, I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do

I can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that

I can go for being twice as nice
I can go for just repeating
The same old lines
Use the body
Now you want my soul
Ooh, forget about it
Now say no go
I, I’ll do anything
That you want me to do

I’ll do almost anything
That you want me to
But I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do

I can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that

Yeah, I, I’ll do anything
That you want me to do
And I’ll do almost anything
That you want me to

But I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do

I can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
I can’t go for that

No I can’t go for that, no (no) no can do
I can’t go for that, no no, no can do
I can’t go for that, (no no no no) no I can’t go for that

I can’t go for that (no can do)
No can’t do
I can’t go for that (no no no no can’t do)
I can’t go for that
I can’t go for that, yeah (no can do)
No, no, no, no, no, no
