DON’T FIGHT IT

(S. Cropper/W. Pickett)

There you sit
All by yourself
And everybody’s dancin’
They can’t help themselves

The groove is much too strong
You can’t hold out longer
So get up, don’t fight it
You got to feel it, feel it

You better get on up
And get that groove
You know what, baby?
I like the way you move

Yeah, you do the thing
Like it ought to be
So don’t fight it, baby
You got to feel it, feel it

The way you jerk
The way you do The Twine
You’re too much, baby
I wanna make you mine

Yeah, after the dance
I wanna take you home
So don’t fight it, baby
You’ve got to feel it, feel it
Don’t fight it, baby
You got to feel it, feel it

 
Lyrics

GOT TO GET YOU OFF MY MIND

(D. Burke/S. Burke/J. Moore)

Chorus:
Got to get you off of my mind
I know it’s just a matter of time
Cause you’ve found somebody new
Our romance is through

Gonna throw your picture away
Cause you didn’t want my love any old way
You’ve found somebody new
Our romance is through

Some folk’s love is hard and strong
That’s the kind of love that lingers on
Some folk’s love is swift and fast
That’s the kind of love that’ll never last

We had a love that was in between
And to me it was like a dream
If we had stayed together till June
I’d a probably been a groom

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

2. Got To Get You Off My Mind
Soulsville  

FREE

(A. Davis/E. Tuton)

Honey, stop your lyin’
You ain’t gotta lie no more
Sugar, stop your cheatin’
You ain’t gotta cheat no more

Cause the low down dirty things
You do at night
At last have come to the light
I can see clearly now

Take off your mask, baby
I can see right through your soul
And what I see is a doggone thing
Don’t know why I didn’t see it before

You misused my love for so long
You throw me love
Like you throw an old dog a bone
And that’s why the name of this song is

Free
Glad I got over you
Say it again for the benefit of those who didn’t hear me
I said I’m free, free
I’m glad I gotten over you
When you do me like you do me
Tell me what else can a poor boy do

Let the four winds blow
Let ’em blow wherever they please
If you’re trying to be a sweet angel tomorrow
Loving you I just couldn’t see
Here’s why

You misused my love for so long
You throw me love like you throw a dog a bone
You gave away the steak and you know that’s wrong
Even a dog get tired wants to bury that bone

Said I’m free
I’m over you
Said I’m free
I’m over you

Sittin’ in a room all alone
While the rain is falling
Sittin’ by the telephone
But you’re never never calling

 
Lyrics

3. Free

RESPECT YOURSELF

(L. Ingram/M. Rice)

If you disrespect everybody
That you run into
How in the world do you think
Anybody’s supposed to respect you?

If you don’t give a heck
About the man with the Bible in his hand
Just get out the way
And let the gentleman do his thing

You’re the kind of know-it-all
Want everything your way
Take the sheet off your face, boy
It’s a brand new day

Chorus:
Respect yourself
Respect yourself
If you don’t respect yourself
Ain’t nobody gonna give a good cahoot
Respect yourself
Respect yourself

If you’re walking ’round thinkin’
That the world owes you something
Cause you’re here
You goin’ out the world backwards
Like you did when you first come here

You keep on talking ’bout the President
He won’t stop air pollution
Put your hand on your mouth when you cough
That’ll help the solution

Oh, you cuss around women
For you don’t even know their names
And you’re dumb enough to think
That’ll make you a big old man

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

4. Respect Yourself

CRY TO ME

(B. Russell)

When your baby
Leaves you all alone
And nobody
Calls you on the phone
Don’t you feel like crying?
Don’t you feel like crying?
Well here I am, honey
Come on, cry to me

When you’re all alone
In your lonely room
And there’s nothing
But the smell of her perfume
Don’t you feel like crying
Don’t you feel like crying?
Don’t you feel like crying?
Come on, come on, cry to me

Nothing could be sadder
Than a glass of wine, all alone
Loneliness, loneliness
Is such a waste of time
You don’t ever have to walk alone
So come on, take my hand
And baby won’t you walk with me?

When you’re waiting
For a voice to come
In the night
But there is no one

Don’t you feel like crying? (cry to me)
Don’t you feel like crying? (cry to me)

 
Lyrics

5. Cry to Me

JUST ONE MORE DAY

(S. Cropper/O. Redding/M. Robinson)

I’ve been missing you
For so many days now
I keep wanting you, love
In so many ways now
I can’t get you off of my mind
But true love is so hard to find

I want yet another day
Ooh, I need another day
Darling, can I have another day?
And I can be anything
That you want me to be now

The sweet things
You used to do for me
Some kind words, Lord
You used to say them to me now

I can’t forget those lovely days
But this is the price
I’m about to pay
If you let me have just one good day
Ooh, I want another day
Ooh, I need just one more day
And I will do anything
That you want me to do now

I will do anything
That you want me to do now
Say anything
That you want me to say
Buy you anything
You want me to buy
And I will cherish you
Till the day I die

If you let me have another day
Ooh, I want this one more day
Ooh, I need one more day
And it can be anything
That you want it to be now

I want just one more day
And then another day

 
Lyrics

NEVER FOUND A GIRL

(E. Floyd/A. Isbell/B. Jones Jr.)

Ain’t no love
Ain’t no love like my baby’s love
It’s like burnin’ fire
Oh, set up in my bones
Ain’t no lonely days
Ain’t no lonely, lonely nights
Every little thing that she does
I know the girl’s alright

Chorus:
Cause I ain’t never, never, found me a girl
To love me like you do
To love me like you do

Ain’t no man, ain’t no man
Got a little woman like me
You are every little thing
One sweet girl should be
She’s every poor boy’s dream
And every rich man’s prayer
But I don’t need no money, honey
Cause you are always there

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

SOULSVILLE

(I. Hayes)

Black man, born free
At least that’s the way it’s supposed to be
The chains that binds him are hard to see
Unless you take this walk with me

Place where he lives got
Got plenty of names
Slums, ghetto and black belt
They are one and the same
And they call it Soulsville

Any kind of job is hard to find
That means an increase in the welfare lines
The crime rate is rising too
If you were hungry what would you do?

Rent is two months past due
On a building that’s falling apart
Little boy needs a pair of shoes
This is only a part of Soulsville

Some of the brothers got plenty of cash
The tricks on the corner, gonna see to that
Some like to smoke and some like to blow
Some are even strung out on a fifty dollar Jones

Some are trying to ditch reality
By getting so high
Only to find out
You can never touch the sky
Cause your roots are in Soulsville

Every Sunday morning
I can hear the sisters sayin’
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Trust in the Lord to make a way

I hope that He hears their prayers
Cause deep in their souls they believe
One day He’ll put an end to all this misery
That they have here in Soulsville
Soulsville

LITTLE SALLY WALKER

(R. Thomas)

Little Sally Walker
Sittin’ in a saucer
Ride, Sally, ride
Wipe your weepin’ eyes

Put your hands on your hips
Let your back bone slip
I want you to

Shake it to the East
High boot time baby
Shake it to the West
High boot time baby
Shake it to the very one
That you love the best

Chorus:
Little Sally Walker
Tell me what you’re gonna do
Little Sally Walker
I’m in love with you

Little Sally Walker
I see ya sittin’ in your saucer
Rise and do the jerk
I love to see you work

(Chorus)

Put your hands on your hips
I got it
Let your back bone slip
Back bone slip now

Shake it to the East
Shake, shake, shake
Shake, shake, shake, shake it
Shake it to the West
Shake, shake, shake
Shake, shake, shake, shake it

Shake it to the very one
That you love the best
Come on, now

Little Sally Walker
(Oh, shake it, Sally)
Shake it, Sally Walker
(Oh, shake it, Sally)
Shake, shake, Sally Walker
(Oh, shake it)

I WANT TO (DO EVERYTHING FOR YOU)

(J. Tex)

I want to hold you in my arms
Till you say, “Turn me loose”
I want to do little things for you
Till you say, “It ain’t no use”

I want to wake you every morning
With a good morning kiss
I want to kiss you to sleep the same way
Cause I know you like this

Chorus:
I want to do everything for you
Cause that’s all that man can do
When he loves a woman like I love you
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Ooo, eee, I love you

I want to say sweet things to you
Till you say, “I said enough”
I want to stand right by your side
When the going gets tough

I want to mend your broken heart
Till you say, “The hurt is gone”
I want to stay with you always
So that you won’t be alone

(Chorus)

I want to work for you every day
Till you say, “Come home and rest”
I want to buy you pretty things
So you can look your best

I want to take you everywhere
So the world can see what I got
I want to give you tender love
Till you say I’ve got to stop

(Chorus)

JUST THE ONE (I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR)

(S. Cropper/E. Floyd/A. Isbell)

I’ve been looking for a long time
To find someone to be mine
I never thought you’d come along
But now that you’re here
All my worries are gone

Sweet you, sweet you
All of my dreams have all come true
You’re just the one I’ve been looking for
You’re just the one I’ve been looking for

I didn’t know how long it would take
But good things come to those who wait
I can’t ask for anything more
You’re everything I’ve been looking for

Sweet you, sweet you
Nobody, nobody else could do
You’re just the one I’ve been looking for, baby
You’re just the one I’ve been looking for

Nights were dark, the days got longer
My mind was weak but my heart stayed strong
And you came along to rescued me
But please don’t you ever set me free

Sweet you, sweet you
All my dreams have all come true
You’re just the one I’ve been looking for, darling
You’re just the one I’ve been looking for

I don’t look
All day Monday
I didn’t find you
Searching all day Tuesday
I didn’t find you
Early Wednesday morning
I finally found you
(You’re the one)
And when I found you
Put my arms around you

I’m so glad that I found you
Just the one I’ve been looking for

DON’T LET THE GREEN GRASS FOOL YOU

(J. Akines/J. Bellmon/V. Drayton/R. Turner)

Girl, try to remember
When we didn’t have no shoes
We stuck together
Just me and you
It took a long time
To get what we got today
Now you wanna give it all up
For another guy
Baby, I’m tellin’ you

Don’t let the green grass fool ya
Don’t let it change your mind

It’s gonna be hard for me, baby
To get my life all over
Baby, you got the loving
I really need
And if you leave me
Leave me this way, baby
You know what?
I may not live to see a brand new day
Ooh, baby

Don’t let the green grass fool ya
Don’t let it change your mind
It may be greener on the other side, baby
But right in my arms is where you belong

 
Lyrics

NEVER LIKE THIS BEFORE

(I. Hayes/B. Jones Jr./D. Porter)

I’ve been kissed, loved
Squeezed and pleased
But never like this before
You’ve got me truckin’ behind you
Running on my knees
Pleadin’ and beggin’ for more

You know, I’ve heard a lot of sweet talk in my time
But your pretty words just lasts on my mind

Chorus:
It’s like never
(Never)
Oh, never
(Never)
No, never like this before

I’ve been swept,
Kept up all night
Sometimes I didn’t rest at all
I’ve been shifted
Lifted up sky high
Lost on a waterfall

I know sometimes it’s easy
Sometimes it’s rough
I just can’t ever seem to get enough

(Chorus)

How do you do it?
How do you do it?
How do you do it
When you do it to me, baby?

I’ve been kissed, loved
Squeezed and pleased
But never like this before
You’ve got me truckin’ behind you
Running on my knees
Shouting and pleadin’ for more

Sometimes you love me easy
Ylove me rough
I just can’t ever seem to get enough

It’s like never, oh, never
Hmm, never, never, ever

(Chorus)

ON A SATURDAY NIGHT

(S. Cropper/E. Floyd)

Well I’m looking for my baby
And when I found my baby
Gonna kick and boogie
I’m gonna pull down the shades

Well I know everything gonna work out fine
Me and my baby and a bottle of wine
On a Saturday night, oh yeah
On a Saturday night

If you wanna have a good time
Might as well be a good time
Gonna kick back and boogie
I’m gonna pull down the shade

And I’m gonna get you to be with you
Your kind of love, I can never do without
On a Saturday night, oh yeah
On a Saturday night

Well I’m looking for my baby
When I find my baby
Gonna go in the back door
I’m gonna lock up the front door

Well I know everything gonna work out fine
Me and my baby and a good old wine
On a Saturday night, oh yea
On a Saturday night
You know what I’m talking about
On a Saturday night

EVERY MAN OUGHT TO HAVE A WOMAN

(W. Bell)

Every child needs a place to play
Every preacher, Lord, needs a prayer to say
I believe to my soul
Every man needs a hand to hold

Chorus:
That’s why every man ought to have a woman
Every man ought to have a woman

I need you baby

Sometimes I wonder bout the things I see
There’s a man, where can his woman be?
In my mind it’s plain to see
Every man just ain’t dressed like me

(chorus)

And if I fail what I try
I never worry
You are standing by
What you want is what you say
And what I need you bring right away

(chorus)
