Gamblers' Blues
I don't know what love is
But I think I must have it bad
Yeah, you know I don't know what love is people
Whoah, but I think I must have it bad
Yeah, you know some people say love is just a gamble
But whatever it is, it's enough to drive old B. mad

They say love is just a proposition people
It's strictly a game of give and take
Yeah, they tell me love, love, love is a proposition people
They say it's strictly a game of give and take
Whoah, but my woman took all I gave her
And I'm here to tell to you that love proposition stuff's a fake

Oh, I don't claim to be no gambler people
Oh, I don't' know much about the dice
Yes, I don't claim to be no gambler people
I tell you I don't know much about the dice
Oh, but I wait and my baby knows
She knows I'm not the kind who's gonna crap out twice

Yes, she left me early this mornin'
I don't know the reason why
She just got up early this mornin'
Didn't even say good-bye

But I love you, I love you, you know I love you baby
Although you made me cry
Yes, there are a lot of women who want me
Oh, but how you satisfyback to top
Night Life
When that ev'nin' sun goes down,
yeah, you'll find me hangin' around
Because the night life,
it ain't no good life but it's my life

Yeah, yeah, yeah listen to the blues,
listen to what they're sayin'
Oh, please listen to the blues,
listen to the blues they're playin'

Ah, ah, all of the people just like you and me,
they're all dreamin' about their old used to be
Because the night life,
it ain't no good life but it's my life

They tell me life's an empty scene,
an avenue of broken dreams
Because the night life,
it ain't no good life but it's my lifeback to top
Buzz Me
When I saw you this morning, baby
Tell me why did you walk away
When I saw you this morning, baby
Tell me why did you walk away
Can't believe that you don't love me
Thought our love was here to stay

Now buzz me, baby
I'll be waiting for your call
Buzz me, buzz me, buzz me
Buzz me, baby
I'll be waiting for your call
If you forgot the number
Come on over
You won't have to call at all

I never lied to no one
I ain't gonna lie to you
When I say I'm yours forever
Every word I say is true
Buzz me, baby
I'll be waiting for your call
If you forgot the number
Come on over
You won't have to call at all

Yes, buzz me, baby
I'm like the ship that's lost at sea
Buzz me, buzz me, baby
You mean so much to me
If I ever get my arms around you
I ain't gonna let go till 1973back to top
Don't Answer the Door
Baby, I don't wanna a soul,
Hangin around my house when I'm not home.
Oh, I don't want a soul, baby,
Hangin' around my house when I'm not home.
I don't want you to open the door for nobody, woman,
Oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone.

Your sister might wanna visit us,
But the little girl she talk too much.
If she just come by to visit us,
Tell her to meet us Sunday, Sunday, down at the church.
'Cause I don't want a soul, baby,
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home.
Yes, I don't want you to open the door for nobody, baby,
Oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone.

Your mother might wanna visit us,
But you tell you mamma I get home bout the break a day.
And that's too late to visit anybody, baby,
So, tell you mamma to please, please, please stay away.
'Cause I don't want a soul, baby,
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home.
Yes, I don't want you to open the door for anybody, woman,
Oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone.

You might feel a little sick, baby,
And you know you're home all alone,
I don't want the doctor at my house, baby,
You just suffer, suffer, suffer till I get home.
'Cause I don't want a soul, baby,
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home.
Yes, I don't want you to open the door for nobody, woman,
Baby, when you're home and all alone.

Blind Love
People, I was standing at my window
Tears running all down my cheeks
Yes, standing at my window
Tears running all down my cheeks
Well, I could see the woman I'm loving
Stopping everyone in the world she meets

Well, standing on the corner
Between 35th and Main
Well, standing on the corner, people
Between 35th and Main
Yeah, that's where a blind man's seen my woman
People, a dumb man called her name

He said, "Oh, I'm blind
You brought eyesight and made me see"
"Oh, I'm blind
You brought eyesight and made me see"
Yes, and the dumb man asked a question
"Woman, who may your good man be?"

Yes, I'm standing by trembling, people
People, my heart's laying in my hand
I'm standing by trembling, darling
With my heart's laying in my hand
Well, I could hear my baby say
"Lord, I ain't got no man"back to top
Baby Get Lost
Good mornin' baby, baby, welcome back to town
Yeah, you doin' so much trav'lin' woman, I never know when you're gonna be
around

Yeah, you a fine and mellow baby but you stubborn as a mule
You love me like an angel baby but you treat me like a fool
Two faced woman don't you hand me no double cross
Well, because anytime I'm ready woman
Well, I can tell you, I can tell you, "Baby, get lost!"

You cheatin' on the outside, you're doin' ev'rything you chose
You better come back on the inside woman, 'cause you got too much to lose
I don't want no trouble with you baby,
I wanna tell you I got to be the boss
Yeah, because anytime I'm ready baby,
oh, I can tell you, I can tell you, "Baby, get lost!"

Yes, I'll try to stop your cheatin' woman but I just don't have the time
I got so many woman, baby, 'till they're standing in line
I want to tell you baby, yeah, you know I've got to be the boss
All right!
Well, because anytime I'm ready, baby,
I can tell you, "Baby, get lost!"back to top
Gonna Keep on Loving You
Say what you wanna
Say what you please
It don't make no difference, baby
You're all right with me
I'm gonna keep on loving you, baby
I'm gonna keep on till the day I die
I keep on loving you
Baby, because the way you satisfy

I'm gonna tell you one thing
I'm not gonna say it again
The way I love you, baby
You know it's a doggone sin
Gonna keep on loving you
I'm gonna keep on loving you, woman
Baby, until the day I die, yeahback to top
