Much Too Much (Pete Townshend) Towser Tunes, Inc./Fabulous Music Ltd./ABKCO Music, Inc. (BMI)

From the My Generation liner notes by Brian Cady:

 

Recorded November 10, 1965 at IBC Studio A, London.

The My Generation: Deluxe Edition stereo version lacks the original's double-tracked vocals in the intro.

"I like the beginning of this. Sounds like Barry McGuire, doesn't it? Very sort of folksy, 'Green, Green'."
--Pete Townshend (1965)

Much too much to bear

Your love is hard and fast
Your love will always last
If it's you I need
I've got to pay the levy
Got to pay
'Cause your love's too heavy on me

And it's much too much to bear

If I ever leave you darlin'
I hope you see
That I really love you
But your love's too heavy on me

And it's much too much to bear

When I make love to you
Do all the things you want me to do
You never think of me
Always cry a bevy
Bevy of tears
'Cause your love's too heavy on me

And it's much too much to bear

There was a time I could give all I had to you
But my enthusiasm waned and I can't bear the pain
Of doing what I don't want to do

Much too much to bear

Your love is hard and fast
Your love will always last
If it's you I need
I've got to pay the levy
Got to pay
'Cause your love's too heavy on me

And it's much too much to bear
