Episode 57 Preview - I Learned the Hard Way

Returning guest and math teacher extrordinaire, Jack Every, returns to ensure the unrepresented genre of Motown gets its due by talking with us about Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings "I Learned the Hard Way", a song I had never heard of before last week.  Which is reason enough to listen in.

You can buy "I Learned the Hard Way" on iTunes, Amazon Music (free with Prime!), and Google Play.

There's an entertaining video covering the story of the song on YouTube:


And, of course, the lyrics:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I Learned the Hard Way"

Something told me inside
That your love was untrue
Something told me inside
Something told me inside


You said, "Girl, it's alright
I would never hurt you"
You said, "Girl, it's alright"
He said, "Girl, it's alright"


Just to be by your side
I would've walked through the flames
Just to be by your side
Just to be by your side


Now it hurts me inside
Just to hear your name
Just to hear your name


I learned the hard way
That your love is cruel
I learned the hard way, baby
Not to be your fool


I learned the hard way
I learned the hard way about you
Now I know about you
Now I know about you


When I open my eyes
It was all around me
When I open my eyes
When I open my eyes


Clouds of perfume and lies
And a hotel key
Clouds of perfume and lies
Clouds of perfume and lies


And when I answered your phone
I heard a gasp and a click
When I answered your phone
When I answered your phone


Ooh, was that wrong number, wrong
Or was she after your love


Just to be by your side
I would walk through the flames
Now it hurts me inside
Just to hear your name


I learned the hard way
That your love is cruel
I learned the hard way, baby
Not to be your fool


I learned the hard way
I learned the hard way about you
Now I know about you
Now I know about you


Now I know about you
Now I know about you
Now I know about you
Now I know about you


Just to be by your side
I would walk through the flames
Now it hurts me inside
Just to hear your name


I learned the hard way
That your love is cruel
I learned the hard way, baby
Not to be your fool


I learned the hard way
I learned the hard way, baby, about you


Now I know about you
(Now I know about you)
I know about you
(Now I know about you)


Now I know about you
(Now I know about you)
Now I know about you
(Now I know about you)


Now I know about you
(Now I know about you)
I won't be your fool
(Now I know about you)


Listen, I know about you
(Now I know about you)
Your love
(Now I know about you)


I wanna go home
(Now I know about you)
I know about you
(Now I know about you)
I said, "I wanna go home"

  1. New Jersey is presently the most important market for regulated on-line playing within the United States. Canada is essentially an unregulated nation in terms of|when it comes to|by means of} on-line gaming. At the same time, Mexico is thecasinosource.com reviewing its playing laws intending to manage the net playing sector to align with the rest of|the the rest of} the nation’s playing business. Therefore, the increasing regularization of on-line playing within the North American countries and their respective states is predicted to drive the market further.
