Don’t have to humble yourself to me,
I ain’t your judge or your king
Baby, you know I ain’t no queen of sheba
We may not even have our dignity,
This could be just a powerful thing
Baby we can choose you know we ain’t no amoeba
Chorus:

Are you ready for the thing called love
Don’t come from me and you,
It comes from up above
I ain’t no porcupine,
Take off your kid gloves
Are you ready for the thing called love
I ain’t some icon carved out of soap
Sent here to clean up your reputation
Baby, you know you ain’t no prince charming
We can live in fear or act out of hope
For some kind of peaceful situation
Baby, how come the cry of love is so alarming ...chorus

Bridge:

Ugly ducklings don’t turn into swans
And glide off down the lake
Whether your sunglasses are off or on
You only see the world you make

Chorus outro:
Are you ready for the thing called love
Don’t come from me and you,
It comes from up above
I ain’t no porcupine,
Take off your kid gloves

Are you ready for it
Are you ready for the thing called love
Don’t come from me and you,
It comes from up above
I ain’t no porcupine,
Take off your kid gloves

Are you ready for it
Are you ready for love, baby
Oooh yeah babe
Are you ready for love

. . .


How many teardrops are gonna fall tonight?
How many hartaches must a woman have in her life
I lost a lover, lost my friend, I'm through with love
I just can't win
I'm a three time loser, I'm a three time loser

How many hours of your love I'm gonna wait
How many heartaches do you really think I'm gonna set and take
I lost a lover, lost my friend, I'm through with love
I just can't win
I'm a three time loser, I'm a three time loser

Instrumental Repeat 2nd Verse

I lost it once, lost it twice
Will you might have been good baby but you just weren't worth the price

Instrumental
I'm a three time loser, three time loser (3 times)
And I don't have to take it anymore END

. . .


Sittin’ in front of your house,
Like rain in early dawn
Workin’ on a love letter
Got my radio on.

Got my eye on your window pane
And I smoked a lot of cigarettes.
Mercy, mercy but love is strange
And you haven’t even kissed me yet.

Look comes to push,
Push comes to shove,
Shove comes to touch,
Touch will come to love.

Workin’ on a love letter,
Listenin’ to a love song,
I’m writing you a love letter, love letter,
Got my radio on...radio, radio

Hope you get the message baby.
I know that you’re gonna let me in.
It’s real in your neighborhood
And this is more than I’m gonna bend.

Look comes to push,
Push comes to shove,
Shove comes to touch,
Touch will come to love.

Why don’t sit waitin’
Why don’t behavin’
Love’s waiting in the car,
In the car and rain now.

Workin’ on a love letter,
Listenin’ to a love song,
I’m writing you a love letter, love letter,
Got my radio on...radio, radio

Guitar solo

Look comes to push,
Push comes to shove,
Shove comes to touch,
Touch will come to love.

(3 times with adlibs)
Workin’ on a love letter,
Listenin’ to a love song,
I’m writing you a love letter, love letter,
Got my radio on...radio, radio

Three days of snow in a burnin' hell,
Bet you're wonderin' where I am,
Rang that number all night long,
Got no comfort on the telephone,
Went out and caught me a midnight flight,
Thought a little love would make it all alright,
But the landlord said you moved away and left me all of your bills to pay,
Look out baby I think you might have made your move too soon.

He left me with a Keno card, livin' in Vegas ain't too hard,
I ran it up to about 50 grand, counted it out and held it in my hand,
That kinda word will get around, and make a lost love come up found,
I hear ya knockin' baby at my door, but you don't live here no more,
Oh no, I think he made his move too soon.

Instrumental

I've been from Spain to Tokyo, from Africa to Ohio,
I never try to make the news, I'm just a man who sings those low down blues,
I'll take my lovin everywhere, I come back to know they still care,
One lover here, one love behind, one in my arms, one on my mind,
One thing baby never make a move too soon

Yeah baby, never make your move too soon,
Well you can count on this baby, we never make a move too soon
(Too soon)

. . .


Ooh, ooh, ooh,
People are talkin', talkin' 'bout people,
I hear them whisper, you won't believe it.
They think we're lovers kept under cover,
I just ignore it but they keep sayin' we...
laugh just a little too loud,
stand just a little too close,
we stare just a little too long.
Maybe they're seein', somethin' we don't darlin'.

Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about
(Somethin' to talk about)
Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about
(Somethin' to talk about)
Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about
How about love?

I feel so foolish, I never noticed
You act so nervous, could you be fallin' for me?
It took the rumor to make me wonder,
Now I'm convinced that I'm goin' under.
Thinkin' 'bout you every day,
dreamin' 'bout you every night.
I'm hopin' that you feel the same way,
Now that we know it, let's really show it darlin'.

Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about
(Somethin' to talk about)
A little mystery to figure out
(Somethin' to talk about)
Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about
How about love?

Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about babe,
A little mystery to figure out.
Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about,
How about love? Ooh...
Listen to 'em baby
(Somethin' to talk about)
A little mystery won't hurt 'em
(Somethin' to talk about)
Let's give 'em somethin' to talk
How about our love, love, love, love
whoowhoo mmmm hey oohh whoowhoo
About love, love, love, love
How about they talk about it? uh huh
Talk about love........

. . .


Broken heart, bloodshot stare
signs of a fool who cared too much
Now she's gone and he can't remember how
to live without her touch
Hopin' to die but surely livin' to tell

When it comes to matters of the heart
there is nothing a fool won't get used to

So he found someone afraid his heart would follow the heat
he could hardly do more than pretend
though she knew in her heart that his love was alive

When it comes to matters of the heart
there is nothing a fool won't get used to

Now of all the things love teaches
all the ways that it opens our eyes
none more profound than the lesson he learned
the day she walked out of his life
Well when the road gets too narrow
it's then he remembers her smile
and he sees these words forming on her lips
across a river of tears he once cried

When it comes to matters of the heart
there is nothing a fool won't get used to

. . .


In the shadow of your father
sweet brown eyes of the one I love
I can't wait another minute baby
to do the things that we never done
everybody gets hungry sometimes
your love is like a kettle on
in the shadow of your father
guess I get a little sad sometimes

Shake a little for me baby
take me to the water when my well runs dry
shake a little for me baby
just a little now
just a little now

Everybody gets lonely sometimes
guess a stranger is a friend in need
in the shadow of this New York skyline
all these stories looking down on me
everybody feels the water rising
could go on to her enjoy the ride
ah when you're dancing for me now baby
I don't feel so small against the tide

Shake a little for me baby
take me to the water when my well runs dry
shake a little for me baby
shake a little for me baby
take me to the water when my cup runs dry
shake a little for me baby
just a little now
just a little now
just a little now

. . .


Hey!
Shut up.
Don't lie to me.
You think I'm blind but I got eyes to see
Hey!
Mister, how do you do.
Oh pardon me I thought I knew you.
Would you stand back baby 'cause I want to get a better look.
The big man who couldn't handle the little bit of love you took.

Hey, hey, have a heart, hey, have a heart.
If you don't love me, why don't you let me go?
Have a heart, please, oh don't you have a heart?
Little by little you fade while I fall apart.

Oh Oh Oh darling, I love you so.
I told you yes, and then you told me no.
Baby, how can you say
You should be free and I should pay and pay
And you talk and talk about you and what you need
But sooner or later your love is gonna make me bleed.

Hey, hey, have a heart, hey, have a heart.
If you don't love me, why don't you let me go?
Have a heart, please, oh don't you have a heart?
Little by little you fade while I fall apart.
Oh, Oh.

Talk on, talk on, but love is what you need.
And sooner or later that love is gonna make you bleed.

Hey, hey, have a heart, hey, have a heart.
If you don't love me, why don't you let me go?
Have a heart, please, oh don't you have a heart?
Little by little you fade while I fall apart.
Don't ya know it baby
have a heart
(please)
Hey Hey Have a heart
(please)
Have a heart

These men that I've been seeing, baby
Got their soul up on the shelf
You know they could never love me
When they can't even love themselves
But I need someone to love me
Someone to really understand
Who won't put himself above
Who just loves me like a man

I've never seen such losers, Darlin'
Even though I tried
To find a man who could take me home
Stead of takin' me for a ride
And I need someone to love me
I know you can
Believe me when I tell you
You can love me like a man

They all want me to rock them
Like my back ain't got no bone
I want a man to rock me
Like my back bone was his own
Darlin', I know you can
Believe me when I tell you
You can love me like a man

I come home sad and lonely
Feel like I wanna cry
I want a man to hold me
Not some fool to ask me why
I know you can
Don't you put yourself above me
You just love me like a man

. . .


When you get home baby
write me a few of your lines
when you get home little baby
write me a few of your lines
that'll be consolation
Lord Honey oh my worried mind

Left my baby
standin' in the backdoor cryin'
Well I left my little baby
standing in the backdoor cryin'
I never felt so sorry
Lord Honey till he said goodbye

Kokomo me baby
Kokomo me right
Kokomo your mama,
she'll be back tomorrow night
I'd like to cry in your arms tonight
baby don't you wanna go?
Right on to Lemon Light City
Sweet home Kokomo

Go on down to the river baby
goin' to sit down on the ground
well I'm goin' down to the river baby
goin' to sit down on the ground
And let the way of the water
Lord Honey wash my troubles down

Kokomo me baby
Kokomo me right
Kokomo your mama,
she'll be back tomorrow night
I gotta cry with you baby
baby don't you wanna go?
Right on to Lemon Light City
Sweet home Kokomo

They all said 'Louise was not half bad'
It was written on the walls & window shades
and how she'd act
a little girl
the deceiver, don't believe her,
that's her trade

Sometimes a bottle of perfume
flowers, and maybe some lace
men bought Louise ten cent trinkets
their intentions were easily traced

Everybody thought it kind of sad
when they found Louise in her room
They'd all put her down
below their kind
still some cried when she died
that afternoon

Louis rode home on a mail train
somewhere to the south I heard them say
'It's too bad it ended so ugly,
It's too bad she had to go that'

But the wind is blowin' cold tonight
Goodnight Louise, Goodnight
Yes, the winds' blowin' cold tonight
goodnight Louise, good-night...

. . .


This old house is falling down around my ears
I'm drowning in a river of my tears
When all my will is gone you hold me sway
I need you at the dimming of the day
You pulled me like the moon
pulls on the tide
You know just where I keep my better side
What days have come to keep us far apart
A broken promise or a broken heart
Now all the bonny birds have wheeled away
I need you at the dimming of the day
Come the night you're only what I want
Come the night you could be my confidant
I see you the street and in company
Why don't you come and ease your mind with me
I'm living for the night we steal away
I need you at the dimming of the day
I need you at the dimming of the day...

. . .


Let me tell you 'bout a friend of mine
He's a short order cook
Long on speed, short on spice
He reads his customers like a book
He's seen this, and he's done that
Now he's makin' fried eggs an art
But there's one thing he can't fix no how
There's a longing in his heart
He's tried for years to work it out
At the grill and at his home
Well he talks to his friends, talks to himself
He talks the chicken right off the bone
Talks to his woman and she understands
You know they're always eye to eye
She runs the join, They live out back
Small House under a Big sky
Well even the stars at night agree
The sky is falling apart
She knows cause she can feel it too
There's a longing in her heart
A longing in her heart
Longing in her heart
Well now you and me, we're just like them
We never wanted to be alone,
so we made a pact, sealed with desire
for a happier house and home
Only to find it doens't untie
The know where feelings die
There's a longing deep inside our hearts
And no one to tell us why
Our friends aren't looking for anything new
They wouldn't know where to look
Well her, she like running the joint
And he likes being a cook
Together they're doing very well
They're might glad they could
But there's a fire burning towards them now
Coming from a distant wood
And eve the stars at night agree
that the sky is falling apart
We know 'cause we can feel it too
There's a longing in our hearts

. . .


All I ever wanted was our love to be true
More than just enough to get me by
I want a love to see me through
I don't need another well-spent night,
Another clever sideways glance
I wanna look my baby in the eye
And know there's nothing left to chance

Well if you're tired of being lonely, beat up and confused
Darling, there's only one thing you can do:
Come to me
Don't be the one who's waiting
Come to me
Babe, I got what you need
Wont you come to me
There won't be no hesitating, babe
I know what you mean to me

I'm gonna hold out for no one
Ain't gonna settle for less
'Cause the kind of love I'm looking for, baby,
You can't fake, you can't finesse
I ain't looking for the kind of man, baby,
Who can't stand a little shaky ground
Who'll give me fire and tenderness
And has got the guts to stick around

Well if you're tired of being lonely, beat up and confused,
Darling, there's only one thing you can-
I got what you want, baby
Oh, and I got what you need
Well if you're tired of being lonely, beat up and confused,
Darling there is only one thing you can do:
Come to me
Be the one who's waiting
Come to me
Ooh, I got what you need
Come to me
There won't be no hesititing, babe
Won't you come to me
I got what you want now, baby
I got what you need
Won't you come
Won't you bring it on home to me
Won't you come
Won't you come on baby, bring it on home to me
Won't you come to me
Bring all of your sweet love home
Won't you come to me

. . .


Rainy night, I'm all alone
Sittin' here, waiting for your voice on the phone
Fever turns to cold, cold sweat
Thinkin' about things we ain't done yet
Tell me now
I gotta know, do you feel the same
Do you just light up at the mention of my name

Don't worry baby, it ain't nothin' new
That's just love sneakin' up on you
And if your whole world is shakin', feel like I do
That's just love sneakin' up on you

Hey, hey yeah

Nowhere on Earth for your heart to hide
Once love comes sneakin' up on your blind side
You might as well try to stop the rain
Stand in the track of a runaway train
Just can't fight it when a thing is meant to be, yeah
Come on, let's finish what you started with me
Yeah

Don't worry baby, it ain't nothin' new
That's just love sneakin' up on you
And if your whole world is shakin', feel like I do
That's just love sneakin' up on you

Hey yeah

Don't worry baby, it ain't nothin' new
That's just love sneakin' up on you
And if your whole world is shakin', feel like I do
That's just love sneakin' up on you
[repeat]

. . .


Watch out, you might get what you're after
Cool baby, you're strange but not a stranger
I'm an oridinary girl and I'm burnin' down the house

Hold tight, wait till this party's over
Hold tight, well we're gonna be in for some nasty weather
There has got to be a way and we're burnin' down the house

Here's your ticket, pack your bags, it's time for goin' overboard
Transportation is here
Close enough but we're not too far, bet you're wonderin' where you are
Fight fire with fire

All wet, and you might need a raincoat
Shake down, my dreams are walkin' in broad daylight
365 degrees and we're burnin' down the house

My house, out of the ordinary
That's right, I don't wanna really hurt nobody
Some things sure sweep me off my feet
And we're burnin down the house

Watch out, you might get what you're after
Cool baby, you're strange but not a stranger
I'm an oridinary girl and I'm burnin' down the house

. . .


Turn down the lights;
Turn down the bed.
Turn down these voices
Inside my head.

Lay down with me;
Tell me no lies.
Just hold me close;
Don't patronize.

Don't patronize me.

Chorus:
'Cuz I can't make you love me
If you don't.
You can't make your heart feel
Something it won't.
Here in the dark
In these final hours,
I will lay down my heart
And I'll feel the power;
But you won't.
No, you won't.
'Cuz I can't make you love me
If you don't.

I'll close my eyes,
Then I won't see
The love you don't feel
When you're holding me.

Morning will come,
And I'll do what's right;
Just give me till then
To give up this fight.

And I will give up this fight.

Chorus (1x)

. . .


Sometimes I miss that feeling of falling
Falling on over the ledge
You know I miss that feeling of falling
Falling on over the ledge
And when my mind it gets to worryin'
And I just can't get no rest
Oh Baby, that's when I call you up instead

It's after midnight baby, I'm sittin' here all alone
I tried to call your number baby,
but you weren't at home
I been a good girl baby, through with all that mess
But the way I'm feelin' now, darlin'
Well it scares me half to death

Well I miss that feelin', of fallin'
on over the ledge

That summer night in Texas, baby
Too hot and wet to sleep
I heard you pull up in the distance
You're comin' to get me relief
We went screamin' down the highway, baby
So much faster than we should
You pulled me over in the moonlight
Man, I still can feel that hood

Well I miss that feeling of fallin',
on over the ledge
When that rain starts baby, I want to take a real
Good look at that ledge

It ain't something you get over
You might think you made it through
You can turn your head and walk away
But it never takes it's eyes off you

It'll push your foot right through the floorboard
Make you cut them streamers down his back
You waste what's precious and you can't afford
It runs your life right off the track

Keeps you boilin' in that poison
Only the truly twisted know so well
You don't need drugs to show you heaven, baby
'cause there's plenty clean in hell

That miss that feelin' of fallin'
of fallin' on over the ledge

When the blues start callin' I want to crawl way up close to the ledge

. . .


I believe I'm in love with you - kim wilson (t-birds)
I don't know what's wrong with me
I've been foolish as a fool can be
Baby, I can't sleep at night
And I lost my appetize
Went to the doctor but he don't know
It's getting to where it ain't funny no more
Tell me baby ehat I might gonna do
I believe I'm in love with you
I believe I'm in love with you
Tell me baby that you love me, too
I can't fight, baby I decided


I'm in love with you

For you baby I got eyes
Come on baby and give me a chance
All I need is your romance
You know what I'm tryin' to fight
I'm telling you baby I'll be true
I believe I'm in love with you
I believe I'm in love with you
Tell me baby that you love me, too
I can't fight, baby I decided
I'm in love with you

. . .


You need a man that'll treat you like the woman you are
Those little boys are just fooling around with your heart
Whatcha gonna do now that you're all alone?
You need a rock not a rollin' sone
Yeah so when I'm bored
it just ain't enough
You need a man made of stronger stuff
Get ready

Rock steady all night long
Rock steady till the light of dawn
Slow and easy tried and true
Rock steady
Just me and you

You need somebody who will help you with your heavy load
Well I've been there baby
Lord give me a rock and roll
Well I can bend but I won't break
cause you ain't got what I can take


So when you're tired of those little girls
you want a woman that'll rock your world
Get ready

Rock steady all night long
Rock steady till the light of dawn
Slow and easy tried and true
Rock steady

Amateurs are clearly tought
They can't give you what you really want
When all the other have been untrue
I'll give you something you can hold on to

Rock steady all night long
Rock steady till the light of dawn
Slow and easy tried and true
Rock steady
Just me and you

. . .


Opening Farewell

Baby stands before an open window
looking so far away
he can almost feel the southern winds blow
gently touching his restless day

he turns from his window to me
sad smile, his apology
sad eyes reaching to the door
did i lose to his to another evenging
still he spares me the words goodbye
sits alone beside me fighting his feelings
struggles to speak but in the end can only cry

suddenly its so hard to find
the sound of the words to speak his troubled mind
so im offering these to him as if to be kind
there's a train every day
leaving either way
there's a world you know
there's a way to go
i soon believe it's just as well
this is my opening farewell

a childs drawings left there on the table
and a womans silk is laying on the floor
i would keep them here if were able
to lock you safe behind this open door

suddenly its so clear to me
that i asked you to see what you may never see
now my kind words find their way back to me

there's a train everyday
leaving either way
there's a world u know
gotta way to go
i soon believe its just as well
this is my opening farewell
this is my opening farewell

. . .


Verse 1
I am an old woman
named after my mother
My old man is another
child who's grown old

If dreams were thunder
and lightning was desire
this old house would've burned down
a long time ago

Chorus:
Make me an angel
that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster
of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing
that I can hold on to
To believe in this livin'
is just a hard way to go

Verse 2
When I was a young girl
I had me a cowboy
He weren't much to look at
Just a free ramblin' man
That was a long time
and no matter how I tried
the years just flow by
like a broken down dam

(chorus)

Verse 3
There's flies in the kitchen
I can hear all their buzzin'
And I ain't done nothing since I woke up today
How the hell can a person
go to work in the morning
Come home in the evening
and have nothing to say

(chorus)
