Girl in a T-Shirt

Some girls gotta get coco chanel
  Some get the luck of the draw
  I got a girl lookin’ naturally well
  Hippest chick you ever saw
  She like wearin’ powder and paint
  Wheelin’ in a big Seville
  She’s big cheese with the maitre D’s
  Down at the bar and grill
  Just a girl in a t-shirt
  Girl in a t-shirt
  Her reputation precedes her
  In every boutique around
  They get down on their knees to please her
  She’s throwin’ that money down
  Now don’t get it wrong, please understand
  She’s barely keepin’ up with the rent
  But the finer labels and her car phone
  Kepp her down to her very last cent
  Just a girl in a t-shirt
  Girl in a t-shirt
  Everybody digs her, everybody try
  Once you get past that femme fatale
  Everybody knows she’s fine
  I had to get it and quit it and keep a cool head
  It took me a pass or two
  But her code’s done cracked I want you to know
  She’s my baby through and through
  Just a girl in a t-shirt
  Girl in a t-shirt

La Grange

Rumour sprendin’ a-’round in that Texas town
’bout that shack outside La Grange
and you know what I’m talkin’ about.
Just let me know if you wanna go
to that home out on the range.
They gotta lotta nice girls.

Have mercy.
A haw, haw, haw, haw, a haw.
A haw, haw, haw.

Well, I hear it’s fine if you got the time
and the ten to get yourself in.
A hmm, hmm.
And I hear it’s tight most ev’ry night,
but now I might be mistaken.
hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm.

Have mercy.


Deal goin down

Deal goin down

When the deal goin’ down and you gonna take your chance
There’s always just a mystery that locks you in a trance
No matter what the future brings you’re booked, and lawd you’re bound
Be steppin’ softly when you know the deal is goin’ down
When the deal go down and the noose is bein’ tied
Aint no gettin’ round it, fade back and let it lie
No matter what the future brings you’re booked, and lawd you’re bound
Be steppin softly when you know the deal is goin’ down
No matter what the future brings you’re booked, and lawd you’re bound
Be steppin softly when you know
No matter what the future brings you’re booked, and lawd you’re bound
Be steppin softly when you know the deal is goin’ down
Goin’ down
Down, down


Cheap Sunglasses

Cheap Sunglasses

When you get up in the morning and the light is hurt your head
  The first thing you do when you get up out of bed
  Is hit that streets a-runnin’ and try to beat the masses
  And go get yourself some cheap sunglasses
  Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
  
  Spied a little thing and I followed her all night
  In a funky fine levis and her sweater’s kind of tight
  She had a west coast strut that was as sweet as molases
  But what really knocked me out was her cheap sunglasses
  Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
  
  (solo)
  
  Now go out and get yourself some big black frames
  With the glass so dark thay won’t even know your name
  And the choice is up to you cause they come in two classes:
  Rhinestone shades or cheap sunglasses
  Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah


My Head’s in Mississippi

My Head’s in Mississippi

I’m shufflin’ thru the Texas sand,
but my head’s in Mississippi.
I’m shufflin’ thru the Texas sand,
but my head’s in Mississippi.
The blues has got a hold of me.
I believe I’m gettin’ dizzy. (Spoken: Help me now.)

I keep thinkin’ ’bout that night in Memphis,
Lord, I thought I was in Heaven.
I keep thinkin’ ’bout that night in Memphis,
I thought I was in Heaven.
But I was stumblin’ thru the parking lot
of an invisible seven eleven. (Spoken: What was I doin out there?)

Where’s my head baby?
Somewhere in Mississippi.

Last night I saw a cowgirl.
She was floatin’ across the ceiling.
And last night I saw a naked cowgirl.
She was floatin’ across the ceiling.
She was mumblin to some howlin’ wolf
about some voodoo healin’. (Spoken: Mmm Baby.)


Tell It

January 22, 2008

Tell It

I gotta find out what’s in my mind,
I’m a little mixed up but it feels so fine.
Why does love have to come and go,
If it’s got to leave why does it go so slow?

Just tell it…
Tell it like it is.
Tell it..
Tell it like it feels.
Tell it to my baby.

I have a feelin’ that I’m goin’ insane,
I’ve fallen in love but can’t remember her name.
She prob’ly stepped out and she’s coming back again,
but if I don’t know her how can I let her in?

Just tell it…
Tell it like it is.
Tell it..
Tell it like it feels.
Tell it to my baby.

(Spoken: Fine!
So fine!)

How could this ever have happened this way?
Well, sometimes love turns out that way.
Sometimes it’s cold and sometimes it’s hot,
But it’s better to have it than to need it and not!
