about

Selfish, self centered, people who go around hurting others, and are completely oblivious as to how their behavior affects others. This song is an anthem to all who are clueless about the feelings of others, to take a hike. It was recorded in a NY studio in the early 80's. This track rocks hard and has a great fun lyric at the end that was always fun in concert.

By Ted Lehman (ASCAP) Copyright © 2011

Looking out for number one
will keep you safe and sound
will get you where you want to go
what will you do when you get there
with your head in the ground
and all alone

Oh Number One
look out for yourself
cause no one else will
keep watching your ass
is no way to see
what's in front of you
keep watching your ass
is no way to see
what's inside of you

Lowell says the same dudes you misused
but you don't see it that way
the way you look out for number one
you step on all the two's
all the ones who used to share
your pleasures and your blues

So number one here you are
more alone than you think
I bet you like it that way
cause when it comes down to who's around
I hope you can find yourself

so put your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye
