For those of you fans of mid-to-late 70's stuff by people like Parker, E. 
Costello, etc., here's a "blast from the past".  This song was on an album 
called "Squeezing Out Sparks" (a great record).  The song caused a fair 
amount of controversy around the abortion issue; you all can be your own 
judges.  I've gotten so much from this group that I wanted to finally 
contribute by posting something that might be a little offbeat and of 
interest to folks...

You Can't Be Too Strong (Graham Parker)

Intro-  E   A B E   A B E
                  B                    C#m
Did they tear it out, with tongues of steel
               G#m                         A
And give you a shot, so that you wouldn't feel
             B                     E    A B E
And wash it away, as if it wasn't real

               B                      C#m
It's just a mistake, I won't have to face
                G#m                    A
Don't give it a name, don't give it a place
                 B                       E
Don't give it a chance, it's lucky in a way

    A                          B
It must have felt strange, to find me inside you
    E                 A
I hadn't intended to stay
                               B
If you want to keep it right, put it to sleep at night
 C#m        A  B
Squeeze it until it could say

                   C#m A B
You can't be too strong
                   C#m A B
You can't be too strong
                   C#m A B E
You can't be too strong

                   A
You can't be too strong
E                  B   E
You decide what's wrong

                   B                 C#m
Well I ain't gonna cry, I'm gonna rejoice
                 G#m                  A
And shout myself dry, and go see the boys
                      B                  E  A B
They'll laugh when I say, I left it overseas

E                              B                  C#m
Yeah babe I know that it gets dark, down by Luna Park
              G#m                       A
But everybody else, is squeezing out a spark
                      B                      E
That happened in the heat, somewhere in the dark, in the dark

     A                      B
The doctor gets nervous, completing the service
      E                        A
He's all rubber gloves and no head
                                   B
He fumbles the light switch, it's just another minor hitch
C#m    A     B
Wishes to God he was dead

                     C#m A B
But you can't be too strong
                     C#m A B
You can't be too strong
                     C#m A B E
You can't be too strong

               A      E                 B    E
Can't be too strong, you decide what's wrong 
              A       E                   B         E
Can't be too hard, too tough, too rough, too right, too wrong
     A  E               B     E
And you, can't be too strong
     A  E               B
Baby you can't be too strong...

Repeat intro (I think).
