Lee Rocker – Bulletproof lyrics

LEE ROCKER - Bulletprooffront

EVIL
I give ym all and you take it back
It just don’t make no sense
Wonder why I’m on the edge
It’s you that makes me tense
It all comes down to decency
A man’s gotta have some pride
When I try to lend a hand
You take me for a ride

Your thoughts are deep and your heart small
You confuse your own self
Tearing up all the good in life
And hide it on the shelf
Smile is just a burden
And you forgotten what it means
Shelter that took long to build
Is breaking at the scenes

‘Cause you’re mean, mean, mean, just plain evil
Well, you’re mean, mean, mean and my cards are on the table
Well, I’m moving on, I’m stepping out, I’m finally on my way
Diesel fueled, my bags are packed, this time I’m going to stay

Well, it’s not my fault, it’s just who you are but you’re driving me insane
The life he lives it’s one way road without a passing lane
Expecting is a luxury, is something that you earn
But that my man, I know you never learned, learned, learned

Well, I’m just out of Louisiana and I’m feeling like myself
A pack of smokes, some Jerry Reed and whisky for my health
Pulled up to my motel room and much to my surprise
There you are standing there with evil in your eyes

You’re angry and you’re bitter
And you’re looking for a fight
Sun is burning through you eyes
You’ll never see the light
I feel sorry for you darling
There’s so much we could have done
Ain’t got time to simply chat with you
It’s time to have some fun

‘Cause you’re mean, mean, mean, just plain evil
You’re mean, mean, mean and my cards are on the table
Well, I’m moving on, I’m stepping out and I’m finally on my way
Diesel fueled, my bags are packed, this time I’m going to stay
Diesel fueled, my bags are packed, this time I’m going to stay
Diesel fueled, my bags are packed, I’m gone

 

BLUE SUEDE NIGHTS
King is dead, he just left
Been so long, I don’t forget
Blacktop road, moon shine bright
Echoes ring out on a blue suede night

There’s a neon sign outside the door
A beat-up bass and an old guitar
This ain’t the promised land, that’s all right
Echoes ring out on a blue suede night

See the lonesome train, coming down the track
Passed the lazy river down by the cotton shack
Hear the whistle blow, see the smoke from the stack
King is dead and he ain’t coming back

There in the corner, jukebox play
Singing songs from a better day
Pour me another whiskey, give me a light
Echoes ring out on a blue suede night

See the lonesome train, coming down the track
Passed the lazy river down by the cotton shack
Blacktop road, moon shine bright
Echoes ring out on a blue suede night

Seen this place, I’ve been here before
Ain’t the place for a shooting star
Driving to Graceland, rolling like dice
Echoes ring out on a blue suede night
Echoes ring out on a blue suede night
Echoes ring…

 

NERVOUS LITTLE ANGEL
I got a nervous little angel and she’s smiling down at me
I said “she ain’t no one to marry, she gave no nativity”
Got a tattoo on her back a halo made a flame
Nervous little angel on a down bound train

Well, the nervous little angel ain’t from Galilee
And she’s dancing through the knockdown at the Hootenanny
When I kissed her donkeys and her alligator shoes
My baby hits the scene like a bomb shell blues

I got a nervous little angel with a halo made a flame
Baby don’t you know we’re on a down bound train
Down bound train

We have a nervous little angel, don’t start a fight
She’s making every single day just like the fourth of July
Knocking back the spirits and another raisin’ Cain
Nervous little angel on a down bound train

Baby can’t contain it, I ain’t feelin’ any pain
‘Cause there ain’t no stoppin’ on a down bound train

I got a nervous little angel and she’s smiling down at me
I said “she ain’t no one to marry, she gave no nativity”
She got a tattoo on her back a halo made a flame
Nervous little angel on a down bound train

Well, baby can’t contain it, I ain’t feelin’ any pain
‘Cause there ain’t no stoppin’
On a down bound train, down bound train

 

BULLETPROOF
Well, I’ll tell you once
I’ll tell you again
I’ve got the strength of twenty men

I’m bulletproof
Baby, baby said I’m bulletproof
B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-bulletproof

I’ve got a fist of iron
I’ve got a heart of gold
Well, I’m completely immune to the common cold

I’m bulletproof
Baby, baby said I’m bulletproof
B-b-b-b-b-baby I’m bulletproof

I can out wrestle a crocodile
Then I run a three minute mile
I ain’t scared of no kryptonite
Ain’t a man alive I can’t whip in a fight

I said I’m bulletproof
Baby, baby I’m bulletproof
B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-bulletproof

Well, I can go out and rock this town
I can lift about a thousand pounds
I can make the thunder growl
I’m upright and I’m underground

I’m bulletproof
Baby, baby said I’m bulletproof
B-b-b-b-b-baby bulletproof

I can chop down a tree
I can write you a poem
And I’ll rock you baby
Till your daddy get home

I’m bulletproof
Baby, baby said I’m bulletproof
B-b-b-b-b-baby bulletproof
B-b-b-b-b-baby bulletproof
B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-bulletproof

 

UPRIGHT AND UNDERGROUND
You wanna leave, I’d better let you
Get along pretty baby, know you’re not yourself
Get around and I’ll forget you
You never take the place of someone else
You’re like the black cat baby
Well, this ain’t right
Need a good luck charm on a doggy night
I’m upright and I’m underground

You’re like the devil and you’re my woman
I keep my eyes on you baby both the night and day
Get along pretty woman
When you ain’t got baby, better run away
I keep on movin’ in the depth of night
I keep on rockin’ in the broad daylight
I’m upright and I’m underground

They talk behind my back
They say that you been running ‘round
Say a black cat follows me
Trys to drag me down
I don’t need you anyway
And you can’t knock me down
I’m upright and I’m underground

You wanna leave, I’d better let you
Get along pretty baby, know you’re not yourself
Get around and I’ll forget you
You never take the place of someone else
You’re like the black cat baby
Well, this ain’t right
I need a luck charm on a doggy night
I’m upright and I’m underground

They talk behind my back
They say that you been running ‘round
Say a black cat follows me
Trys to drag me down
I don’t need you anyway
And you can’t knock me down
I’m upright and I’m underground

You’re like the devil and you’re my woman
I keep my eyes on you baby both night and day
Get along pretty woman
When you ain’t got baby, better run away
I can keep on movin’ in the depth of night
I can keep on rockin’ in the broad daylight
I’m upright and I’m underground

They talk behind my back
They say that you been running ‘round
Say a black cat follows me
Trys to drag me down
I don’t need you anyway
And you can’t drag me down
I’m upright and I’m underground
I’m upright and I’m underground
I’m upright and I’m underground

 

MIDNIGHT SHIFT
If you see old Annie better give her a lift
Annie’s been working on a midnight shift

If Annie puts her hair up on her head
Paints them lips up bright, bright red
Wears that dress that fits real tight
Starts staying out ‘til the middle of the night
Says that a friend can give her a lift
Annie’s been working on a midnight shift

If she acts a little funny, she seems a little strange
Starts spendin’ your money on a brand new things
Tells you that she wants to use the car
But don’t explain what she wants it for
Brother, there ain’t no ifs
Annie’s been working on a midnight shift

Early in the morning when the sun come up
Look at old Annie and she’s looking kinda rough
Tell her “honey, get out of that bed”
She says “leave me alone ‘cause I’m just about dead”
Brother, there ain’t no ifs
Annie’s been working on a midnight shift

If you got a good mama that’s stayin’ at home
Better enjoy it ‘cause it won’t last long
When you think everything’s all right
She starts slippin’ round in the middle of the night
Brother, there ain’t no ifs
Annie’s been working on a midnight shift

 

DOG GONE RIGHT
Well, the dog starts yappin’ when you’re around
Teeth over flesh, he’s a dirty old hound
Howl at you, late at night
Everything about you is dog gone right

Well, scratching for fleas, diggin’ for bones
Gonna take off far away from home
Come back later, late at night
Everything about you is dog gone right

Well, everything about you is dog gone right
Watch out girl, I think he’ll bite
Howl at you through the night
Everything about you is dog gone right, dog gone right

Oh that’s right

Well, the cats meaow and the bird goes tweet
Lions rumble, stamp their feet
Snakes they crawl and shed their skin
Come on baby, just shake that thing

Pulled his leash and choked his chain
Baby watch, he’ll go insane
Want me baby, late at night
Everything about you is dog gone right

When you grab his back, you wage his tail
Throw a ball, he fetch the mail
Can’t you tell this ain’t right
Everything about you is dog gone right

Well, everything about you is dog gone right
Watch out now, I think he’ll bite
Howl at you through the night
Everything about you is dog gone right

Dog gone right
Dog gone right
Dog gone right

 

ONE MORE SHOT
I got a song that I need to sing
And I got a bell that I got to ring (oh, ring it)
I got a whole lotta things I gotta do
But I gotta have one more shot at lovin’ you

I got words that I need to say
I gotta live just a few more days (I know you will)
As long as I’m breathing baby I am through
But I gotta have one more shot at lovin’ you

One more shot
One more shot
One more shot
At lovin’ you

I thought I had a chance, you let it get away
Now don’t tell me you should come to stay
If we could start all over baby I know that I’ll be true
But I gotta have one more shot at lovin’ you

When the river is up and the bridge is out
Now I know what living is about
You know I can do better baby, that’s what I’m gonna do
But I gotta have one more shot at lovin’ you

One more shot
One more shot
One more shot
At lovin’ you

One more shot
One more shot
One more shot
At lovin’ you

One more shot
One more shot
One more shot
At lovin’ you

 

SHE’S GONE
I didn’t think I’d wake up and find a note beside the bed
Said you were really sorry, it was written there in red
I got a drink of coffee and looked out into the yard
Now there’s only oil in that spot out on the drive

Well, she’s gone, gone, gone

She had three hundred horses and an automatic drive
Seven digit outboard that had flames on the side
Could’ve took some money and you could’ve took the bus
I’ve just learnt another thing, I’ve just run out of luck

Now she’s gone, gone, gone
Drove off in the night
Well she’s gone
Gone, gone, gone
Girl, this just ain’t right
Well, she’s gone

Didn’t think you’d leave me in the middle of the night
I wasn’t even drinking and we didn’t have a fight
I hope you don’t run off the road and give my love a dent
Baby, bring her back to me, I know she’s heaven sent

Now she’s gone, gone, gone
She drove off in the night
Well, she’s gone
Gone, gone, gone
Girl, this just ain’t right
Well, she’s gone

My heart is broken, I’ll pull the choke or push the pedal down
If I ever find you girl, I’ll put you in the ground
The engine fires, those squealing tyres drive off in the night
I don’t care what else you did but girl, this just ain’t right

Now she’s gone, gone, gone
She drove off in the night
Well, she’s gone
Gone, gone, gone
Girl, this just ain’t right
Well, she’s gone, she’s gone

 

LITTLE LIES
Sittin’ at home waitin’ for you
This time no excuses will do
Little lies that you’ve been tellin’ me

Takin’ the time thinkin’ it through
Maybe this work but I know it’s not true
Little lies that you’ve been tellin’ me

Little white lies, little white lies
It’s the little lies that make me think it’s over
Little white lies, little white lies
It’s the little lies that make me think we’re through

Lookin’ at life from your point of view
Hurtin’ it’s easy, lovin’ it’s hard to do
Little lies that you’ve been tellin’ me

Oh, that’s right

Little white lies, little white lies
It’s the little lies that make me think it’s over
Little white lies, little white lies
It’s the little lies that make me think we’re through

Takin’ me back to the places I’ve been
Yeah, I’ve changed and I know it’s a sin
Little lies that you’ve been tellin’ me

You can’t take back what’s already gone
The doors are closed, it’s time to move on
Little lies that you’ve been tellin’ me

Little white lies, little white lies
It’s the little lies that make me think it’s over
Little white lies, little white lies
It’s the little lies that make me think we’re through

Sittin’ at home, nothing to do
That’s all right ‘cause I’m through with you
Little lies that you’ve been tellin’ me

Little lies that you’ve been
Little lies that you tell
Little lies that you’ve been tellin’ me

 

I’LL CRY INSTEAD
I’ve got every reason on earth to be mad
‘Cause I’ve just lost the only girl I had
If I could get my way, I’d get myself locked up today
But I can’t, so I’ll cry instead

I’ve got a chip on my shoulder bigger than my feet
I can’t talk to people that I meet
If I could see you now, I’d try to make you sad somehow
But I can’t so I’ll cry instead

Don’t want to cry when there’s people there
I get shy when they start to stare
I’m gonna hide myself away
But I’ll come back again someday

And when I do, you’d better hide all the girls
I’m gonna break their hearts all ‘round the world
Yes, I’m gonna break them in two
And show you what your loving man can do
Until then I’ll cry instead

Don’t want to cry when there’s people there
I get shy when they start to stare,
I’m gonna hide myself away
But I’ll come back again someday

And when I do, you’d better hide all the girls
I’m gonna break their hearts all ‘round the world
Yes, I’m gonna break them in two
And show you what your loving man can do
Until then I’ll cry instead

 

JOHNNY, FRANKIE’S MAN
Well, Frankie and Johnny were sweethearts
True as a blue blue sky
He was a long-legged guitar picker
With a wicked wanderin’ eye
But he was her man, nearly all of the time

Well, Johnny he packed up to leave her
But he promised he’d be back
He said he had a little pickin’
To do a little farther down the track
He said I’m your man, I wouldn’t do you wrong

Well, Frankie curled up on the sofa thinkin’ about her man
Far away the couples dancing to the music of his band
He was Frankie’s man, he wasn’t doin’ her wrong

Then in the front door walked a redhead
Johnny saw her right away
She came down by the bandstand
To watch the guitar he could play
He was Frankie’s man but she was far away

Well, he sang every song to the redhead
She smiled back at him
He came and sat at her table
Where the lights were low and dim
What Frankie didn’t know, wouldn’t hurt her none

Then the redhead jumped up and slapped him
She slapped him a time or two
She said I’m Frankie’s sister and I was checking up on you
If you’re her man you better treat her right

Well the moral of this story is be good but carry a stick
Because sometimes it seems like a guitar picker
Just can’t tell what to pick
He was Frankie’s man and he still had done her wrong

 

NOTHIN’ LASTS FOREVER
Nothin’ lasts forever is the last thing that you said
A hundred miles behind me and a thousand miles ahead
Nothin’s on the radio
Nothin’ seems to be for certain man

Rainfall is on the interstate, today is turnin’ black
I don’t know everything but that’s not turnin’ back
Another cup of coffee, another cigarette’s burnin’ down
She said, “nothin’ lasts forever, I can seem to forget”

The picture that I kept of you faded like a dream
Sometimes when I think of you I feel like I could scream
Look in the rearview mirror, nothin’s clearer now

Nothin’ lasts forever, I can seem to forget
Nothin’ lasts forever, I can seem to forget

Rainfall is on the interstate, today is turnin’ black
I don’t know everything but that’s not turnin’ back
Another cup of coffee, another cigarette’s burnin’ down

Nothin’ lasts forever, I can seem to forget
She said, “nothin’ lasts forever, I can sing to forget”
Nothin’ lasts forever, I can seem to forget
Nothin’ lasts forever, I can seem to forget

Lee Rocker – Live / Blue Suede Nights lyrics

LEE ROCKER - Livefront LEE ROCKER - BlueSuedeNightsfront

Note: since this is a live album, I am only adding the songs that have not been studio recorded

RESTLESS
Well, I walked up to her window
I said, “gimme a ticket please”
She said, “hey where you going boy?”
I said, “that’s all right with me”

Baby, I’m restless
Gotta get on out of town
Going where the living’s easy
Baby, that’s where I’ll be found

Lord, I’m travelling light
‘Cause I might be going far
All I got are these clothes on
My bags and my big guitar

Baby, I’m restless
Gotta get on out of town
Going where the living’s easy
Baby, that’s where I’ll be found

Hey Mister driver
Put you big foot on that gas
Run this old grey dog
As long as it might last

Baby, I’m restless
Gotta get on out of town
Going where the living’s easy
Baby, that’s where I’ll be found

Now we’re all in this grey dog
Any place he wants to go
As long as I can get there
Further down the road

Baby, I’m restless
Gotta get on out of town
Going where the living’s easy
Baby, that’s where I’ll be found

All right, boy

Well, I walked up to the window
I said, “gimme a ticket please”
He said, “hey where you going son?”
I said, “that’s all right for me”

Baby, I’m restless
Gotta get on out of town
Going where the living’s easy
Baby, that’s where I’ll be found

Now, I’m travelling light
‘Cause I might be going far
All I got are these clothes on
My bags and my big guitar

Baby, I’m restless
Gotta get on out of town
Going where the living’s easy
Baby, that’s where I’ll be found
Going where the living’s easy
Baby, that’s where I’ll be found

I said blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one who’s gone and left me blue

Well, it was on a moonlight night
Stars shined bright
Whispers on high
Love said goodbye

Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one who’s gone and left me blue

All right, son

I said blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one who’s gone and left me blue
I said blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one who’s gone and left me blue
Shine on the one who’s gone and left me blue
Shine on the one who’s gone and left me blue

MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS
If the wife and I are fussin’, brother that’s our right
Me and that woman’s got a license to fight
Why don’t you mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Mind your own your own business
(Mind your own business)
Cause if you mind your business
Then you won’t be mindin’ mine.

I used to know a girl with the hair up high
The boys all whistle when she walks by
Why don’t you mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Why don’t you mind your own business
Then you won’t be mindin’ mine

The woman on our party line’s the nosiest thing
She picks up her receiver when she knows it’s my ring
Why don’t you mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Why you mind your business
Then you won’t be mindin’ mine

I used to know a girl with the hair up high
The boys all whistle when she walks by
Why don’t you mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Why don’t you mind your own business
Then you won’t be mindin’ mine

Why don’t you mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Why don’t you mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Mind your own business
(Mind your own business)
Why don’t you mind your own business
Then you won’t be mindin’ mine

 

THE RED NECK MAMA
She’s the Red Neck
Red Neck mama

Red Neck mama

In every city east and west across the open plains
Vegas to Daytona Beach one fact still remains
Red Neck mama’s got it all, knows how to love a man
Brother if you find her keep her anywhere you can

Nashville and Atlanta they love their southern belles
Oklahoma City all the cowgirls feeling good

Her lovin’ gets you high on the time
Don’t need cocaine or marihuana
I got the red neck mama

In every city east and west across the open plains

Red Neck mama’s got it all, knows how to love a man
Brother if you find her keep her anywhere you can

Red Neck mama’s so fine
Love gets you high on the time
Don’t need cocaine or marihuana
I got the red neck mama

EVERYBODY’S TRYING TO BE MY BABY
Well, they took some honey from a tree
Dressed it up and they called it me
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby now

Woke up last night half past four
Fifteen women knockin’ at my door
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby now

Went out last night till some late,
On the home I had nineteen dates
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby now

Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby

Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby
Everybody’s tryin’ to be my baby now

 

FRANKIE AND JOHNNY (bonus track for “Blue Suede Nights”)
Well, Frankie and Johnny were lovers
True as a the stars above
Frankie said: “Johnny, you’re my man, you’re the man I love,
You’re my man, don’t do me wrong”

Then, Johnny walked down to the bar room
He said: “Man, I sure am dry“
He said: “Give me some of that whiskey, son,
I could drink it with Nellie Bly“
He was her man but he done her wrong

All right now

But then Frankie walked in to the bar
She took out that old fourty-four
Turning loose, that girl did shoot
Through the hardwood swingin’ door
He shot her man, ‘cause he done her wrong, so wrong

Shoot him now

Well, now Frankie sat down at the jailhouse
Turned down and bent his knees
She said: “Hey now, Mr Jailer, tell now what you’re gonna do to me”
She shot her man, ‘cause he done her wrong
She shot her man, ‘cause he done her wrong

 

PUT YOUR CAT CLOTHES ON (bonus track for “Blue Suede Nights”)
They took my blue suede shoes down to old Mobile
Got to rockin’ with the rhythm run ‘em over at the hill

Put your cat clothes on
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna really rock it right
Put your cat clothes on
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna really bop it right

Well, my old gal’s slow and easy
All the hipcats know
When she gets that boppin’ beat
Knocks the polish off her toes

Put your cat clothes on
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna really rock it right
Well, put your cat clothes on
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna really bop it right

All right, cats

Now come on cat get with it
Keep your hands off that fruitjar
Do some be-boppin’ rhythm
Pick your toenails up tomorrow

Put your cat clothes on
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna really rock it right
Well, put your cat clothes on
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna really bop it right

They took my blue suede shoes down to old Mobile
Got to rockin’ with the rhythm run ‘em over at the hill

Put your cat clothes on
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna really rock it right
Well, put your cat clothes on
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna really bop it right

Cat, cat, cat clothes
Cat, cat, cat clothes
Cat, cat, cat clothes
Cat, cat, cat clothes
Everybody knows
Put you cat clothes on
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna really rock it right
Put you cat clothes on
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna really rock it right

Lee Rocker – No Cats lyrics

LEE ROCKER - NoCatsfront

RUMBLIN’ BASS
Long before woman, long before man
God realized he was a music fan
Thunder was clapping, waves were slapping
And the palm trees playing like a rubber band
And the bible man, was his rumblin’ friend

Elephants talking, zebras a-walking
Armadillos grooving into the bar
Dinosaurs, they’re not sure, evolution at the door
Don’t wanna be a donkey, wanna stand on all floors
I’m so uptight that I’m not upright

There must be a place
Where I can state my case
You can slap my bass
But you cannot erase
The way I feel when I play

Rumblin’ Bass
Rumblin’ Bass
Rumblin’ Bass
Rumblin’ Bass

After the cesspool man arrived
With eagle his amigo, lust in his eyes
Cat scratches his own legs, man crawling back in disgrace
So he prayed to the God of the rumblin’ bass
Strung up one, later I’ll be gone

Concret jungle working on the night shift
Long day (OK) no one left to dance with
Back at my cave as a pussy cat
Shaped like a woman but she don’t talk back
She’s so sweet and low, that only my fingers know

There must be a place
Where I can stay my case
You can slap my bass
But you cannot erase
The way I feel when I play

Conflict came, conflict went
Golden rule ‘cause rules were bent
Use your head, you ain’t dead
If you’re still in the race
Resing yourself to a second place
Don’t you mess with the rumblin’ bass

There must be a place
Where I can state in my case
You can slap my bass
But you cannot erase
The way I feel when I play

Rumblin’ bass
Rumblin’ bass
Slap my bass, trash my place
Put that guitar back in its case
Put on heels or leather and lace
Only make love, to the rumblin’ bass

 

MIRACLE IN MEMPHIS
Well, there’s a jukebox in the corner
Played it million times
I just heard the new one
Blue moon of Kentucky shine
The world stops spinning
For a minute it was clear
Finally I heard the music that I’ve been waiting to hear

There’s a miracle in Memphis
Shine a light on you
Once the spirit grabs you
There’s nothing you can do
There’s a miracle in Memphis
Burnin’ down at Sun
I just heard the message and I knew what must be done

The hand of God came down and touched me
Angels trumpets blared
Took the train into the city
Cut off all my hair
Baggy pants and pointed shoes
A thrift-store houndstooth coat
Grabbed the one way ticket
On that big wheel river boat

There’s a miracle in Memphis
Shine a light on you
Once the spirit grabs you
There’s nothing you can do
There’s a miracle in Memphis
Burnin’ down at Sun
I just heard the message and I knew what must be done

Now, I can’t never go back
Now, I threw away the map
I’ve heard the voice, seen the light
They call me the hillbilly cat
Got to take the message
Spread the word across the see
To the non believers
Let the music carry me

There’s a miracle in Memphis
Shine a light on you
Once the spirit grabs you
There’s nothing you can do
There’s a miracle in Memphis
Burnin’ down at Sun
I just heard the message and I knew what must be done

There’s a miracle in Memphis
Shine a light on you
Once the spirit grabs you
There’s nothing you can do
There’s a miracle in Memphis
Burnin’ down at Sun
I just heard the message and I knew what must be done

 

ONE WAY OR ANOTHER
One way or another I’m gonna find you
I’m gonna get you, get you
One way or another I’m gonna win you
I’m gonna get you, get you
One way or another I’m gonna see you
I’m gonna meet you, meet you
One day, maybe next week
I’m gonna meet you, I’ll get you, I’ll get you

I will drive past your house
And if the lights are all down
I’ll see who’s around

One way or another I’m gonna find you
I’m gonna get you, get you
One way or another I’m gonna win you
I’m gonna get you, get you

One way or another I’m gonna see you
I’m gonna met you
One day, maybe next week
I’m gonna meet you, I’m gonna get you, get you

And if the lights are all out
I’ll track your bus downtown
See who’s hanging out

One way or another I’m gonna lose you
I’m gonna give you the slip, a slip of the hip for another
I’m gonna lose you, I’m gonna trick you, trick you
One way or another I’m gonna find you, gonna find you girl
One way or another I’m gonna win you
I’m gonna get you, get you

One way or another, I’m gonna see you, meet you girl
One way or another
One way or another
One way or another
One way or another
One way or another

One way or another, I’m gonna meet you
I’m gonna get you, get you, get you, get you
One way or another
One way or another
One way or another

 

SHAKY TOWN
Livin’ in a shaky town lost so far from home
You walkin’ round on a fractured ground
Waitin’ all alone
Did you think it would come to this
Did someone twist you wrong
You climbed a mountain that you can’t climb down
Waitin’ at the stone

Don’t you run for cover
You know I’ll track you down
Don’t you think it’s over
The world is quaking down
In a shaky town, in a shaky town

Your hair is dirty and your clothes are worn
Lost and all alone
Use it up while you live in town
You think you’re made of stone
You drown it all with alcohol
Cigarettes and late night calls
You take a bet you’re gonna lose it all
Heading for a fall

Don’t you run for cover
You know I’ll track you down
Don’t you think it’s over
This wild earth quaking ground
It’s a shaky town, shaky town, shaky town

Don’t you run for cover
You know I track you down
Don’t you think it’s over
From this wilder quaking ground
In a shaky town, in a shaky town

 

SCREAMIIN’ HUNGER
I hear a heartbeat, it sounds like thunder
See the lightning in your eyes
You’re touching me with such a feeling
It’s just the way all it ought be
My heat’s on fire with screamin’ hunger
Lost inside your sweet desire

Tell me what more can in heaven be
Than being inside your arms
Feeling the touch of your warm embrace
Love’s so sweet, I can’t hide away

I see your eyes, is it any wonder
Then again, I realize
My heart’s on fire with screamin’ hunger
Lost inside your sweet desire

The flame will grow to a fire
Burnin’ to a morning light
My heart’s on fire with screamin’ hunger
Lost inside your sweet desire

Tell me what more can in heaven be
Than being inside your arms
Feeling the touch of your warm embrace
Love’s so sweet, I can’t hide away

Tell me what more can in heaven be
Then being inside your arms
Feeling the touch of your warm embrace
Love’s so sweet, I can’t hide away

I hear a heartbeat, it sounds like thunder
See the lightning in your eyes
My heart’s on fire with screamin’ hunger
Lost inside your sweet desire

The flame will grow to a fire
Burnin’ to a morning light
My heart’s on fire with screamin’ hunger
Lost inside your sweet desire
Lost inside your sweet desire
Lost inside your sweet desire
Lost inside your sweet desire

 

LOVE ME GOOD
I don’t want the trouble
I don’t want the pain
A love like yours baby
Drives a man insane

When I see your picture
Smell your sweet perfume
My heart starts pounding hard
When you come into the room

Love me fast
Yes, love me good
Love me like I know
That you should
Minutes feel like hours
The hours feel like days
Going through the motions
Counting all my ways

To let you know I need you
Cause that can’t be denied
I’ll just sit here to waiting babe
Till you’ll be satisfied

Love me fast
Just love me good
Love me like I know
That you should

Baby gimme more
Baby take your time
Gimme your sweet loving
Or hang me out to dry

Love me fast
Love me good
Love me like I know
That you should

I don’t want for trouble
I don’t want the pain
Love like yours baby
Drives a man insane

When I see your picture
Smell your sweet perfume
My heart starts pounding hard
When you walk into the room

Love me fast
Love me good
Love me like I know
That you should

Love me fast
Just love me good
Love me like I know
That you should

 

LITTLE PIECE OF YOUR LOVE
Come on girl, take a little chance

Making little love all the whole night through

Come on girl, gimme just a little piece of your love
Come on girl, gimme just a little piece of your love

 

MEMPHIS FREEZE
Drink gallons of coffee, sit and talk with me
Frozen in time in Memphis Tennessee
Another blue story drags me to my knees
Oh Lord, deliver us from the Memphis freeze
More left the building in the King’s new shoes
One step beyond the old Memphis blues
Now I’m down there frozen
And I’m down on Beale Street
Won’t you please, baby turn up the heat

The power lines are all cut down
From the weight of all of the trees
In the Memphis freeze
The Memphis freeze

The console is silent, air has all gone dead
In the obituaries not a word was said
How we stumbled in darkness
Now the blind man sees
When will it end
The Memphis freeze

The power lines are all cut down
From the weight of all of the trees
In the Memphis freeze
The Memphis freeze
In the Memphis freeze
Memphis freeze
Alright now

 

MR NEWMAN
Mr Newman don’t go out anymore
Puts the empty bottles out by the door
You can always hear him laughin’
I’m so glad he’s happy now
Mr Newman stares out through the glass
Out at all the children playin’ on his grass
Night time comes, you can sometimes hear him cryin’
I’m so glad he’s happy now

I always wondered why he went away
Why did he have to go
Tell me why they won’t let us play with Mr Newman
Mr Newman

Mr Newman talks to himself
He won’t talk to nobody else
Look in his eyes, you can see he’s probably dyin’
I’m so glad he’s happy now

Mr. Newman stays up at night
Tryin’ to drown the deamon livin’ deep inside
Says that he’s cured, I know he’s really lyin’
I’m so glad he’s happy now

I always wondered why he went away
Why did he have to go
Tell me why they won’t let us play with Mr Newman
Mr Newman

Mr Newman’s gonna die someday
That’s what some of the parent’s like to say
Lights go out, you can sometimes hear him screamin’
I’m so glad he’s happy now

I always wondered why he went away
Why did he have to go
Tell me why they won’t let us play with Mr Newman
Mr Newman
Mr Newman
Mr Newman

 

INTO THE VOID
You wake up in the morning and your eyes are burnin’ red
Strike like a ment light, smoke struggle from the bed
Fever didn’t kill you so you reach for something more
Your eyes have sunk into your skull, you walk the killing floor

When you first arrived there you were innocent and young
Thought you had the answers but the struggle has begun
In the flash of a light, it’s seconds but it drags on like a fight
Sometimes a little demon just return you to the night

Into the dark, you raced
Into the void, without a trace
I know you can’t escape, escape without a fight

Now you thought that you could make it
You thought you could succeed
You thought you could handle all the money and greed
Land of desperation is just lying on a vault
In the city of the angels ain’t no place that you would stop

You drive to the south till the city finally wins
You forgot to hold on fast to all the dreams that sucked you in
Like a candle that burns quickly, never throws no heat
The paper that you crumbled up and threw out on the streets

Into the dark, you raced
Into the void, without a trace
I know you can’t escape, escape into the night

Into the dark, you drove
What was a good is now a hole
I know you can’t escape, escape without a fight

 

MOVIN’ ON
Like a locomotive that keeps rollin’ down the track
Like a bullet keeps on flyin’, never turnin’ back
Through the days and night time till they just rollin’ away
Got to keep movin’ on, never fade away

Now the dark is cold and bitter and the nights are long
Through the wicked winds of winter blow another storm
There will always be another bright, shiny day
Got to keep your coat on baby, keep the cold away

If you’re feeling tired an hungry and you can’t go on
You got to keep your head now baby, keep on movin’ on

When it turns to autumn back in winter once again
Even though I love you, I have lost you as a friend
Even in the midnight hour searchin’ for the light
You got to keep on movin’, fight another fight

Bass is slappin’ harder than a cannon in a war
Hearts are pumpin’ harder than they ever did before
And the poison of the vipers hurt, sting and burn
You cannot know what nips at you behind you at each turn

If you’re feeling tired an hungry and you can’t go on
You got to keep your head now baby, keep on movin’ on

Sounds of lightning, sounds of pain are echoes of the night
Lookin’ across the stage, see another fight
But we keep on playin’ harder, harder than before
Don’t you know you’re in a place you never seen before

Morning light of Sunday and the rays of hope are born
Though the road is never ending, keep on movin’ on
Sunday morning the TV is on, and on and on
Got to keep your head now baby, keep on movin’ on

If you’re feeling tired an hungry and you can’t go on
You got to keep your head now baby, keep on movin’ on
You got to keep your head now baby, keep on movin’ on
You got to keep your head now baby, keep on movin’ on

 

HARD RAIN
Shakin’ up the morning, take it as a warning
Hard rain gonna fall
Lookin’ in the rear view and the fire leads you walk through the
Hard rain gonna fall

When you first arrived there, you were innocent and young
Thought you had the answers but the struggle had begun
Feel your body shakin’ when you’re nearly in
Maybe I can see right through

Hard rain gonna fall (hard hard rain)
It ain’t a conspiracy the writing on the wall
Hard rain gonna fall (hard hard rain)
It’s no conspiracy, it ain’t a mystery

Wrappin’ on a back door, settle up an old score
Hard rain gonna fall
Drivin’ down the black top, drivin’ till the dead stop
Hard rain gonna fall

If I had a dollar for every time you try
Gotta put it down,  trying to up your foolish pride
Feel your body shakin’ and you’re nearly in
Baby, gonna follow you

Hard rain gonna fall (hard hard rain)
It ain’t a mystery the shadows on the wall
Hard rain gonna fall (hard hard rain)
It’s no consipiracy, it ain’t a mystery

In the dark you stayed behind the curtains in your room
And a shot of light come and open up your wounds
While you’re lost inside yourself like in a love forgotten dream
Life isn’t what it seems

Hard rain gonna fall (hard hard rain)
Ain’t a conspiracy the writings on the wall
Hard rain gonna fall (hard hard rain)
Ain’t no conspiracy

Hard rain gonna fall (hard hard rain)
It ain’t a mystery the writings on the wall
Hard rain gonna fall (hard hard rain)
Hard, hard rain

Hard rain gonna fall (hard hard rain)
It ain’t a mystery the writings in the wall
Hard rain gonna fall (hard hard rain)

Lee Rocker – Atomic Boogie Hour lyrics

LEE ROCKER - AtomicBoogieHourfront

CALL ME THE ROCKER
Call me the rocker, rock all night long
Call me the rocker, rock all night long
Let you down easy, tell my money’s gone

Rock you easy, don’t wanna hesitate
Rock you easy, don’t wanna hesitate
Let you down easy like jelly on a plate

Twist then I’ll shake, don’t mean a thing to me
Twist then I’ll shake, don’t mean a thing to me
I’m a hip shakin’ daddy, I’m gonna shake like a willow tree

Call me the rocker, rock all night long
Call me the rocker, rock all night long
Let you down easy, tell my money’s gone

Twist then I’ll shake, don’t mean a thing to me
Twist then I’ll shake, don’t mean a thing to me
I’m a hip shakin’ daddy, I’m gonna shake like a willow tree

Call me the rocker, rock all night long
Call me the rocker, rock all night long
Let you down easy, tell my money’s gone
Let you down easy, tell my money’s gone
Let you down easy, tell my money’s gone

 

GOIN’ DOWN HARD
You really want to rag it
I’m runnin’ out of gas
You spent all the money
Thinkin’ it would last
And there ain’t no better treasure
Don’t go diggin’ up the yard
Lovin’ you ain’t easy
So I’m goin’ down hard

You used me and abused me
But I never made a fuss
I know we’re separated
I always think of us
I’m rollin’ with the punches
And I’m keepin’ up my guard
Lovin’ you ain’t easy
So I’m goin’ down hard
Lovin’ you ain’t easy
So I’m goin’ down hard

Well, I’ve never been a quitter
And I’m never gonna lose
My will is growin’ stronger
And I’m gonna beat the blues
And it ain’t over till it’s over
And you’ll lay the final card
Lovin’ you ain’t easy
So I’m goin’ down hard

Lovin’ you ain’t easy
So I’m goin’ down hard
Lovin’ you ain’t easy
So I’m goin’ down hard

 

CONGRATULATIONS
Congratulations, I just heard the news
You’re getting married, I get the blues
I wear a grin to hide the pain
I wanna hold you, hug you and love you once again

Tears keep on fallin’ out of my eyes
Can’t hold that feeling locked up inside
Now that you’re gone, you’re gone away
I’ll light a candle, help me to handle my darkest days

I’ll write a letter, for worse or better
On a rainy day, can’t go on livin’
I’ll be forgiven, can’t go on, can’t go on
Living this charade

My heart is broken, torn in two
I can’t imagine life without you
I’m all alone feelin’ half dead
Got no ambition, have an admission, gun at my head

I’ll light a candle, help me to handle my darkest days
I wanna hold you, hug you and love you once again

 

A TASTE OF YOU
Girl, you got me crazy, I completely lost my mind
Can’t stop thinking ‘bout you and I lost all track of time
Everything is different, I don’t know what to do
I’ll never be the same since I’ve had a taste of you

Now I’m feeling dizzy and I’m living in a haze
My eyelids are half open and I look a little dazed
I’m walking round in circles, my mind has turned to blue
I’ll never be the same since I’ve had a taste of you

Well, my friends all think that I’m dreaming ‘cause I stay awake at night
No matter what I try to do, I just can’t get it right
I’d like to say it’s over, you know it isn’t true
I’ll never be the same since I’ve had a taste of you

Life used to be easy but girl, you made it hard
Well, you shook me like a rag doll, you tore me all apart
Well, we were good together but now I’m feeling blue
I’ll never be the same since I’ve had a taste of you

I’d like to say it’s over, you it isn’t true
I’ll never be the same since I’ve had a taste of you

 

YOUR MAN’S GONE
I see your boyfriend and I was turned and gone
I know that you’ve been carrying on
Look at the future ‘cause it’s bright as day
Your man done gone and walked away

Maybe the future leads a better turn
I wanna help you but our love got burnt
I know your worries about to turn you grey
Your man done gone and walked away
Turned his back, nothing left to say

All of the tears I’ve bottled up inside
You got the pain babe, you can’t hide
I wanna hold you, what can I say
Your man done gone, walked away

Maybe the future leads a better turn
I wanna help you but our love got burnt
I know your worries about to turn you grey
Your man done gone and walked away
Turned his back, nothing left to say

Your man done gone and walked away
Turned his back, nothing left to say

 

JIMMY JIMMY
Jimmy’s getting drunk on the bus ride home

Jimmy got a bus, fifty feet long
People in the front don’t know what’s going on
Driver starts to screaming “Jimmy ya gotta sit down”
Jimmy’s got a bottle and he’s passing it around
Driver’s getting mad, starts to really really sweat
Time is runnin’ out and Jimmy ain’t finished yet
Hangin’ out the window naked, howling at the moon
Pulls his teeth out of his head, blows another tune

Jimmy, Jimmy’s always gonna be on top
Jimmy’s got the song, they’re never gonna stop
Block off the streets, getting cops on the phone
Jimmy’s getting drunk on the bus ride home

Then, we started up a fire underneath the middle seats
Cookin’ hot dogs and onions, man it really stinks
Got a stripper in the back doin’ a little dance
Dealing out the cards for another game of chance
Driver’s got the bottle and the bus is really rockin’
Jimmy’s got confetti flyin’ and everybody’s talkin’
Stripper’s really working on a sailor in the back
Gettin’ out a hand, he’s gonna have a heart attack

Jimmy, Jimmy’s always gonna be on top
Jimmy’s got the song, they’re never gonna stop
Block off the streets, getting cops on the phone
Jimmy’s getting drunk on the bus ride home

Well, the bus is really cookin’ doin’ a hundred and two
Everybody’s singing like some monkeys at a zoo
Driver’s killed the bottle and he’s lying on the floor
Jimmy’s getting thirsty so he’s going back for more
But Jimmy’s in the driver’s seat and you better look out
The whole damn bus starts to scream and shout
Jimmy hits the gas and pulls the wheel up to the right
Gonna make it back to Vegas if it takes him all night

Jimmy, Jimmy’s always gonna be on top
Jimmy’s got the song, they’re never gonna stop
Block off the streets, getting cops on the phone
Jimmy’s getting drunk on the bus ride home
Jimmy’s getting drunk on the bus ride home

 

TAKE IT SLOW
Take it slow only if you can
You’re gonna make me a happy man
Take it slow babe, just enjoy
You’re my play thing and I’m your toy
Take it slow, take it slow

Take it slow and low it down
You got the rhythm going round and round
Take it slow, make it last all night
We got the feeling and the feel is right
Take it slow, yeah, take it slow

Take it slow, baby please don’t stop
Can’t kill the motor when it’s boiling hot
Take it slow, I can’t speak
My heart’s pounding and my knees go weak
Take it slow, yeah, take it slow

Take it slow baby, take your time
Your good lovin’ about to blow my mind
Take it slow, take it slow, yeah

 

MEMPHIS FREEZE
Drink gallons of coffee, sit and talk with me
Frozen in time in Memphis, Tennessee
Another blue story drags me to my knees
Oh Lord, deliver us from the Memphis freeze
More left the building in the King’s new shoes
One step beyond the old Memphis blues
Now I’m down there frozen
And I’m down on Beale Street
Won’t you please, baby turn up the heat

The power lines are all coming down
From the weight of all of the trees
In the Memphis freeze
The Memphis freeze

The console is silent, air has all gone dead
In the obituaries not a word was said
How we stumbled in darkness
Now the blind man sees, when will it end
The Memphis freeze

The power lines are all coming down
From the weight of all of the trees
In the Memphis freeze
The Memphis freeze
In the Memphis freeze

Memphis freeze

 

CAN’T SAY NO
I’m hypnotised in a daze
Ever since I lost your way
You penetrated my purest soul
You grabbed the whole and won’t let it go
I’m in a trance, I will see
In a place put a spell on me
I’m like a top, you pull my string
Spinnin’ round, bumpin’ into things

I guess I’m like your other guys
I slipped and fell for all your lies
I guess I’m like your other guys
I can’t say no to all your lies
Can’t say no

The game you play it isn’t fair
You broke the rules but you don’t care
I turned and left my happy home
To join you in this twilight zone
My whole life is in a spin
Ever since, ever since I let you in
What you do, I can’t explain
Big round eyes drive me insane

I guess I’m like your other guys
I slipped and fell for all your lies
I guess I’m like your other guys
Can’t say no to all your lies
Can’t say no

The game you play it isn’t fair
You broke the rules but you don’t care
I turned and left my happy home
To join you in this twilight zone
My whole world is in a spin
Ever since, ever since I let you in
What you do, I can’t explain
Big round eyes drive me insane

I guess I’m like your other guys
I slipped and fell for all your lies
I guess I’m like your other guys
Can’t say no to all your lies
Can’t say no

 

6TH STREET BLUES
It’s always hot in Texas
Yeah, they melt right in the street
It’s always hot in Texas
Man, they melt right in the street
But the cool cool ride not big enough
It’s the 6th Street light I need

They live kings in Texas
With their trailers and their swimming pools
Man, they live kings in Texas
With their trailers and their swimming pools
No need no big fine car
Or movie star down on 6th Street where I’ll be

The tears from her eyes are falling like rain
In the shadows you hear whispers of love
And they all pass by like ships in the night
She’s the one I’m thinking of

‘Cause I’m out in Austin
The hot rain won’t let me be
‘Cause I’m out in Austin
The hot rain won’t let me be
But the cool cool ride, can not be denied

 

WHEN YOU’RE NOT HERE
I could steal a flame from a candle light
Stab a man in the back while look in his eyes
Whisper the words you like right in your ear
But there’s things I’ll do when you’re not here

I will tell you I love you till the end of times
Take the money from your pocket, put it into mine
We can trust, don’t have any fears
But there’s things I’ll do when you’re not here

So put your little hand in mine
Let’s walk a while
I’ll make you happy as a buzzing bee
But when the lights go out
And you’re not around
I’ll do the things that you’ll never see

Some creatures walk or fly above
But like a snake in the grass
I’ll sneak ‘round real low
You’ll never need to shed a tear
The nasty little things are done when you’re not here

 

BEAUTIFUL DELILAH
Beautiful Delilah, sweet as apple pie
Always gets a second glance from fellas passin’ by
Every time I see her with a different guy
Beautiful Delilah, that’s the reason why

Well, baby don’t allow me fool around with you
You are so tantalizing you just can’t be true

Beautiful Delilah, dressed in the latest style
Swingin’ like a pendulum, walkin’ down the aisle
See so many guys, speak so low in time
Maybe she will settle down and marry after a while
Well, baby don’t allow me fool around with you
You are so tantalizing you just can’t be true

Beautiful Delilah, bathin’ in the sun
An audience of seventeen, notice not a one
Local casanovas who wouldn’t be outdone
Let her steal his heart away, break it just for fun

Well, baby don’t allow me fool around with you
You are so tantalizing you just can’t be true
Beautiful Delilah, sweet as apple pie
Always gets a second glance from fellas passin’ by
Every time I see her with a different guy
Beautiful Delilah, that’s the reason why

Well, baby don’t allow me fool around with you
You are so tantalizing you just can’t be true

Beautiful Delilah, beautiful Delilah
Beautiful Delilah, beautiful Delilah

Lee Rocker – Lee Rocker’s Big Blue lyrics

LEE ROCKER - BigBluefront

AIN’T NO WAY
I’ve seen it all, I had my fill
Life’s too short for this bitter pill
Spent my money to get your thrills
I can’t go on and pay your bills

Ain’t no way now, little girl
Ain’t no way now, little girl
Ain’t no way right now, little girl

Talk is cheap, full of lies
Cross my name off your list of guys
Tell me I’m the only one
Got to leave now, forget my gun

Ain’t no way now, little girl
Ain’t no way now, little girl
Ain’t no way right now, little girl

When you’re lost, all alone
Don’t try to call on the telephone
Curse my name, scream and shout
Your credit line done, just run out

Ain’t no way now, little girl
Ain’t no way now, little girl
Ain’t no way right now, little girl

Hold the phone, bolt my door
Don’t need you comin’ here around no more
Time for me to break these chains
Other girls don’t play those games

Ain’t no way now, little girl
Ain’t no way now, little girl
Ain’t no way right now, little girl

 

TILL IT HURTS
I love you baby when you smile or frown
I love you girl when you’re upside down
I love you baby when you’re bad or worse
I love you darling, till it hurts

I love you baby when you walk that wall
I love you girl when you talk that tall
I love you baby ‘cause you call first
I love you darling, till it hurts

People today, they don’t understand
How it feels to have a helping hand
I’m close behind, if you need a shove
I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in…

I love you baby you’re my heart’s desire
I love you girl, set my soul on fire
I love you baby when the fire hose squirts
I love you darling

 

HOW LONG
How long I gotta stay in this prison of love
How long I gotta stay here alone
How many more times you’re gonna slam that door
Leave me behind walls of stone

How long I gotta go without holding you close
How long I gotta dream about you
How many more guys have you locked up here
Sometimes I’m wishing for you

I could treat you so good
If you would give me a chance
Free me from all of these chains
I’m wound up inside
I just can’t hide all the love that runs through my veins

How long I gotta be all by myself
How long I gotta go with the pain
How many more times till you realize
You can’t change things that remain the same

How long I gotta stay in this prison of love
How long I gotta call on the phone
How many more times they’re gonna lock me up
Before I get you when you’re all alone

Leave me behind walls of stone
Get you when you’re all alone

 

LIE TO ME
I get up when the sun goes down
And watch the empty lights fill up this town
She pulls me clothes and tells me I’m her man
Into the night we walk hand in hand

The neon lights bounce off her eyes
We whisper words we know are lies
Lie to me, ‘cause this ain’t love
Lie to me, ‘cause this ain’t love

She holds the key that won’t unlock the flame
And puts her fingers to her mouth when I ask her name
She pulls me clothes tells me it’s all right
The stars shine on another wasted night

The neon lights bounce off her eyes
We whisper words we know are lies
Lie to me, ‘cause this ain’t love
Lie to me, ‘cause this ain’t love
Lie to me, ‘cause this ain’t love
Lie to me, ‘cause this ain’t love

So she covers her pain with a blanket of gold
Some things in life are better bought than sold
You say your goodbyes and she slams the door
But you both know you’re gonna be back for more

The neon lights bounce off her eyes
We whisper words we know they are lies
Lie to me, ‘cause this ain’t love
Lie to me, ‘cause this ain’t love
Lie to me, ‘cause this ain’t love
Lie to me, ‘cause this ain’t love

 

HEAR YOU MOAN
You got the features that I love to touch
No doubt about it I can’t get enough
Wanna a double dip of that ice cream cone
Hey baby I wanna hear you moan

Your kinda lovin’ mamma knocks me out
I go down hard ‘cause there ain’t a doubt
You are the chain, I’m pulling you along
Hey baby I wanna hear you moan

You walk right, talk right, look right too
Girl, I know exactly what I wanna do
I know you, I told you up on the phone
Ain’t no doubt about it I wanna hear you moan

I’ll take you home and treat you royally
Up in a castle mama you and me
You’ll be my queen sittin’ on a throne
Hey baby I wanna hear you moan

You need some training baby, that I bet
Just roll on over girl and be my pet
Like a little dog beggin’ for a bone
Hey now babe I wanna hear you moan

You walk right, talk right, look right too
Girl, I know exactly what I wanna do
I know you, I told you up on the phone
Ain’t no doubt about it I wanna hear you moan

You walk right, talk right, look right too
Girl, I know exactly what I wanna do
I know you, I told you up on the phone
Ain’t no doubt about it I wanna hear you moan

You got the features that I love to touch
No doubt about it I can’t get enough
Wanna double dip of that ice cream cone
Hey baby I wanna hear you moan

 

SHAME, SHAME, SHAME
I tried to tell you baby
It don’t make no sense
Now you got me baby
I’m up against this fence

It’s a shame, shame, shame
Shame, shame the way it feels, the way it feels
It’s a shame, shame, shame
Shame, shame on you

You go out in the evening
Leaving saying you’re gone
Six o’clock in the morning
You come marching home

It’s a shame, shame, shame
Shame, shame the way it feels, the way it feels
It’s a shame, shame, shame
Shame, shame on you

I’m just sittin’ here waitin’
For you to come home
When you call me babe
I’ll be up and gone

It’s a shame, shame, shame
Shame, shame the way it feels, the way it feels
It’s a shame, shame, shame
Shame, shame on you

I tried to tell you babe
Nothing makes no sense
Yeah, you got me baby
I’m up against this fence

It’s a shame, shame, shame
Shame, shame the way it feels, the way it feels
It’s a shame, shame, shame
Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you

 

LITTLE BUSTER
My wife she used to love me
Hold me real tight
That all changed this morning
Didn’t come home last night

They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
Well, they call me little buster
Buster come round for you

I got a brand new girlfriend
She goes stuck in her teeth
The wind blows up her dress
Ain’t got nothing underneath

They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
Well, they call me little buster
Buster come round for you

My wife took my amp and guitar
Threw ‘em both away
My baby owns a liquor store
That’s where I’ll stay

They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
Well, they call me little buster
But buster come round for you

I’m made out of a glass
Baby I can see
All the wonderful things
You’re trying to do to me

They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
Well, they call me little buster
But buster come round for you

They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
They call me little buster (I didn’t come home last night)
Well, they call me little buster
But buster come round for you

 

DARLIN’ DARLENE
Well, I woke up in the morning
Put on my pants and shirts
Washed my face no time to shave
Gonna be late for work
Come and stand beside me
Niblble on my ear
Oh Darlene, you and me
Looks like we’re staying here

Darlin’ Darlene, what have you done to me
Darlin’, you’re having fun with me

I took you to the movies
Thought you’d enjoyed the show
Sat there for a minute
Then I got up to go
Walked out to the street
In the backseat of a cab
Gave you two thumbs up Darlene
You’re the best I’ve had

Darlin’ Darlene, what have you done to me
Darlin’, you’re having fun with me

Well, I love you in the morning
I love you late at night
Love you when the stars are out
And when the sun is bright
Always be my darlin’
I’ll love you till the end
There’s that look that’s in your eye
And here I go again

Darlin’ Darlene, what have you done to me
Darlin’, you’re having fun with me
Darlin’ Darlene, what have you done to me
Darlin’, you’re having fun with me
Darlin’ Darlene, what have you done to me
Darlin’, you’re having fun with me

 

FIND ANOTHER MAN
You want me to stay
I’ve got to go
My bags are packed
The sun sets low
Why don’t you go out and find another man

You read the stars
They shine your way
I’ve seen the light
The dark, you stay
Why don’t you got out and find another man

Baby, don’t you understand
Baby, better change your plan
Why don’t you find anther man

You use your magic
An angel fell
Won’t need a lover
Under your spell
Why don’t you go out and find another man

You’ve got your hexes
Your voodoo too
I won’t need protection
When I’m free from you
Why don’t you go out and find another man

Baby, don’t you understand
Baby, better change your plan
Why don’t you find anther man

You use your magic
An angel fell
Won’t need a lover
Under your spell
Why don’t you go out and find another man
Why don’t you go out and find another man
Why don’t you go out and find another man

 

GOT MY MIND ON YOU
I like to wake at night
I like to wake at night
I like to wake at night
But don’t seem right I got my mind on you

I see you with your man
I see you with your man
I see you with your man
You don’t understand I got my mind on you

I hate to come and go
I hate to come and go
I hate to come and go
But don’t you know I got my mind on you

Yeah, all right now babe

You shake me to the bone
You shake me to the bone
You shake me to the bone
When I’m all alone I got my mind on you

I talk you in my bed
I talk you in my bed
But I talk you in my bed
Till I’m cherry red I got my mind on you

I like to wake at night
I like to wake at night
I like to wake at night
But don’t seem right I got my mind on you

 

BIG BLUE TRAIN
Look outside the window babe
I can see it’s gonna rain
Look outside the window babe
I can see it’s gonna rain
I know they’re coming to get me
And take me back in that big blue train

I would wish that the rain would come down
And wash my sins away
I wish the rain to come down
And wash my sins away
There’s not enough rain in the clouds
And the big blue train won’t let me stay
I’m on a big blue train

It’s rainin’ so much harder now baby
It’s rainin’ so much hard, I can see
It’s rainin’ so much hard
It’s rainin’ so much hard, I can see
I better walk down to the station
‘Cause the big blue train is waitin’ on me

 

THE HUCKLEBUCK

RAG MAMA RAG
Think I’m going uptown, hat in my hand
Looking for a woman who ain’t got no man
Might as well looking for a needle in the sand
Looking for a woman ain’t got no man

Get ya one woman, then ya get ya two
One for your buddy other one for you
Got me a wife and a sweetheart too
Wife don’t love me but the sweetheart do, oh yeah

Can’t believe a woman would treat me so
Love another man at my backdoor
Hey baby, don’tcha know
Gotta reap just what you sow

Gal hurt me, cigar in the hand
Fist in my pocket, blackjack in my hand
Put that girl on the women’s tree
She’s gonna holler “don’t murder me”, oh yeah
Mama yeah, mama yeah
