You Upset Me Baby
Well she's thirty-six in the bust
Twenty-eight in the waist
Forty-four in the hips
She's got real crazy legs
You upset me baby
Yes you upset me baby
And I'm telling you people
She's something fine that you really ought to see

Well she's not too tall
Complexion is fair
Man she knocks me out
The way she wears her hair
You upset me baby
Yes you upset me baby
Like being hit by a falling tree
Woman, woman what you do to me

Well I've tried to describe her
It's hard to start
I'd better stop now
Because I've got a weak heart
Well you upset me baby
Yes you upset me baby
Well like being hit by a falling tree
Woman, woman what you do to me

Well I've tried to describe her
It's hard to start
I'd better stop now
Because I've got a weak heart
You upset me baby
Yes you upset me baby
Well like being hit by a falling tree
Woman what you do to meback to top
Sweet Little Angel
I've got a sweet little angel
I love the way she spread her wings
Yes got a sweet little angel
I love the way she spread her wings
Yes, when she spreads her wings around me
I get joy, and everything

You know I asked my baby for a nickel
And she gave me a $20 bill
Oh yes, I asked my baby for a nickel
And she gave me a $20 bill
Whoah, you know I ask her to buy a little drink of liquor
And she gave me a whiskey still

Oh, if my baby should quit me
I believe I would die
Oh if my baby should quit me
Lord I do believe I would die
Yes if you don't love me little angel
Please tell me the reason whyback to top
Three O'Clock Blues
Well now it's three o'clock in the morning
And I can't even close my eyes
Three o'clock in the morning baby
And I can't even close my eyes
Can't find my baby
And I can't be satisfied

I've looked around me
And my baby she can't be found
I've looked all around me, people
And my baby she can't be found
You know if I don't find my baby
I'm going down to the Golden Ground
That's where the men hang out

Goodbye, everybody
I believe this is the end
Oh goodbye everybody
I believe this is the end
I want you to tell my baby
Tell her please please forgive me
Forgive me for my sinsback to top
Did You Ever Love a Woman
Did you ever love a woman
And you loved her with all your might
Did you ever love a woman
And you loved her with all your might
Well, and you knew all the time
That the woman wasn't treating you right

You fix her breakfast in the morning
Stay at home everyday
Even wash the dishes
If she has to go away
You send the children to school
Even mend their hose
Stay up all nights with the babies
Even wash their dirty clothes

Did you ever love a woman
And you loved her with all your might
Yes, and you knew all the time
That the woman wasn't treating you right

But when it's time to go to bed
The woman grabs you in her arms
She holds you real tight
She hugs you with all her charms
She calls you a lot of sweet names
Then she turns out the light
She sets your soul on fire
And you say, "Baby, everything is all right"

Did you ever love a woman
And you loved her with all your might
Yes, and you knew all the time
That the woman wasn't treating you rightback to top
Five Long Years
If you ever been mistreated, then you know just what I'm talking about.
If you ever been mistreated people, you know just what I'm talking about.
I tell you I worked, I worked five long years for a woman,
and she had the nerve to put me out.

You know I got a job in a steel mill, trucking steel like a slave.
Five long years, every Friday I went straight home with all of my pay.
If you ever been mistreated people then you know just what I'm talking about.
I tell you I worked, I worked five long years for a woman,
and she had the nerve to put me out.

But you know, I finally learned a lesson, a long, long time ago.
The next woman that I marry, she gotta work and bring in the dough.
If you been mistreated people then you know just what I'm talking about.
I tell you I worked, I worked five long years for a woman,
she had the nerve, she had the nerve to put me out.back to top
The Other Night Blues
Well I dream I heard you cry
Babe, but I heard you call my name
Well I dream I heard you cry, darling
Babe, but I heard you call my name
Well, it had to be you
Baby, to call so lonesome and plain

The other night when we were lovin'
Babe, I held you in my arms
Yes, when we were lovin', darlin'
Babe, I held you in my arms
Well, you told me that you love me
And no-one else would do me no harm

Well, you told me a lie
Babe, and you told me goodbye
Oh, you told me a lie
Darlin', and you told me goodbye
Well now, it's all your worry baby
And you have no need to cryback to top
I Stay in the Mood
Yeah, I stay in the mood for you
'Cos I just can't help myself
Yeah, I stay in the mood for you
'Cos I just can't help myself
You've always fooling around
Givin' my love to somebody else

Still I stay in the mood for you
And I can see you everywhere I go
Still I stay in the mood for you
And I can see you everywhere I go
Well, if something soon don't happen
My heart is gonna break I know

Well, you said that you love me
You've sworn that you'll be true
But now you're tellin' stronger
That I'm just a fool you know
But I stay in the mood for you
'Cos I just can't help myself
Please come back to me baby
'Cos I'm tired of livin' by myselfback to top
Pray for You
Know I love you for myself
Yes, and you're gone to somebody else
And I'm worried yes, I'm worried all alone

I go to bed prayin' each night
I'm hopin' darlin', you'll treat me right
And I'm worried yes, as a man can be

All I can do is pray
Hope that maybe I'll find you someday
But until then, darlin' I'll pray all day long

I'll do everything I can
Tryin' to get you to understand
I don't want to see you round, darlin' with other men

Ah, you know I love you, love you for myself
Gone and left me for somebody else
All I can do is pray for youback to top
