The Last Time

Janis Joplin

Make it the last time.
Make it the last time.
Make it the last time.
Oh darling please.

What I don't understand, why you always pick a time,
When I've got to talk to you, with your love on my mind;
To see a distant light; To hear a far-off horn;
To leave me one more time; I can't stand no more.

Say no more!
Well no more!
Well no more!
Oh darling, please ?

And every time you leave, I make the very same vow,
That when you come back, I ain't gonna love you no how.
But when you return, you look so fine to me;
I can't stand no more darling; It's just got to be.

For the last time!
For the last time!
Our last time!
Oh darling, please?

Don't you understand me! ?
Don't you understand me! ?
Honey, don't you understand my word ?

Well, you told me that you loved me; I believed you darling;
But you lied; You know it's true.
Hold on to my heart; I'll believe it till you're leaving;
Then I cry...

Oh darling!
Well, Oh darling!
Oh darling!
Make up your mind.

Oh, I can't stand your loving honey, it's tearing me apart.
You done got my soul, but now you're after my heart.
Well, don't hurt me darling, 'cause you know how to do it so well.
I got one consolation, I just wail.

It was the last time!
Was the last time!
Was the last time!
Oh darling, please ?

You told me that you loved me; An I believed you darling;
But you lied; you know it's true.
Hold on to my heart; I'll believe it till you're leaving,
Then I cry.

Well no more!
Well no more!
Well no more!
Without a; Ple-ase!

If you wanna love me honey, please stay home.
If you wanna love me baby, please stay gone.
Don't you understand me ?
Don't you understand me ?
Don't you understand my words ?

To this world!
What am I! ?
What am I! ?
Oh, darling. Oh!

You told me that you loved me; I believed you darling;
But you lied; You know it's true.
Hold on to my heart; I'll believe it till you're leaving,
Then I cry... yeah... ¥Ç¥

As recorded at United Studios (Los Angeles) on 14 December 1966 and first released on the 1968 second pressing of the vinyl album Big Brother & The Holding Company (track 6 side B) Mainstream 6099
