Been beat up and battered around
Been sent up and I’ve been shut down
You’re the best thing that I’ve ever found

Handle me with care
Reputations changeable
Situations tolerable
But baby you’re adorable
Handle me with care

I’m so tired of being lonely
I still have some love to give
Won’t you show me that you really care?

Everybody’s got somebody to lean on
Put your body next to mine and dream on

I’ve been fucked up and I’ve been fooled
I’ve been robbed and ridiculed
In daycare centers and night schools
Handle me with care

Been stuck in airports, terrorized
Sent to meetings, hypnotized
Overexposed, commercialized
Handle me with care

I’m so tired of being lonely
I still have some love to give
Won’t you show me that you really care

Everybody’s got somebody to lean on
Put your body next to mine and dream on

I’ve been uptight and made a mess
But I’ll clean it up myself I guess
Oh, the sweet smell of success
Handle me with care

– Written by George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, and Bob Dylan. Appears on the album Traveling Wilburys Vol 1.
