Baby, Stop Crying

Some asshole hurt you,
I'll avenge you and love you,
But please be quiet.

This bloated yet enjoyable song ends side one of the bilious and angry 1978 album "Street Legal." The singer is angry because this woman's former lover treated her meanly enough that he's ready to shoot him. He then asks her to stop crying, and follows it up with an invitation to take advantage of his services as a friend, and most likely something more than that.

Sample:

You been down to the bottom with a bad man, babe But you’re back where you belong Go get me my pistol, babe Honey, I can’t tell right from wrong Baby, please stop crying, stop crying, stop crying Baby, please stop crying, stop crying, stop crying Baby, please stop crying You know, I know, the sun will always shine So baby, please stop crying ’cause it’s tearing up my mind

As you can see, he's ready to handle the situation, but her crying is giving him a headache.
