Inflation Blues
Hey Mr. President
All your congressmen, too
You got me frustrated
And I don't know what to do
I'm trying to make a living
I can't save a cent
It takes all of my money
Just to eat and pay my rent
I got the blues
Got those inflation blues

You know, I'm not one
Of those high brows
I'm average Joe to you
I came up eating cornbread
Candied yams and chicken stew
Now you take that paper dollar
It's only that in name
The way that buck has shrunk
It's a lowdown dirty shame
That's why I got the blues
Got those inflation blues

Mr. President
Please cut the price of sugar
I wanna make my coffee sweet
I wanna smear some butter on my bread
And I just got to have my meat
When you start rationing
You really played the game
And things are going up
And up and up and up
And my check remains the same
That's why I got the blues
Got those inflation bluesback to top
Broken Heart
You're breaking my heart, baby
There ain't a damn thing I can do
You got me wringing my hands
And crying, baby
While you're breaking my heart in two
You know I just can't believe
I can't believe, baby
That you're doing the things you do

I can't believe, baby
I can't believe you would do me wrong
Please have mercy on me, baby
I want you to come on back
Come on back where you belong
I want you so bad
I want you so bad, baby
You know I need my lady homeback to top
Sell My Monkey
Me and my baby
Keeps falling out
Let me tell you
What it's all about

She wanna sell my monkey
She wanna sell my monkey
She wanna sell my monkey
But that'll never do

It used to be hers
But she gave it to me
Why she wanna sell him
I just can't see

She wanna sell my monkey
She wanna sell my monkey
She wanna sell my monkey
But that'll never do

She wanna know
Why we don't get along
She don't realize
She's doing me wrong

She wanna sell my monkey
She wanna sell my monkey
She wanna sell my monkey
But that'll never do

I have to hang around
Every day and night
I can't trust the girl
Out of my sight

She wanna sell my monkey
She wanna sell my monkey
She wanna sell my monkey
But that'll never doback to top
Heed My Warning
You can lead a horse to water
But you can't make him drink
You can send a kid to college
But you can't make him think
You'll never miss your water, baby
Till the well runs dry
And you'll never miss me, baby
Till I say good-bye
Mm hm, you'd better heed my warning

The straw that broke the camel's back
Didn't have to be so big
And when you ran off and left me, baby
I almost blew my wig
They say he who has the last laugh
Always laughs the best
And I'm gonna laugh louder, baby
Than all the rest
Mm hm, baby, you'd better heed
You'd better heed my warning

If you want me to get out, baby
You know you don't have to push
But you'll find a bird in hand
Is worth two in the bush
There's no need to lock the barn door
When the cow is gone
But you're gonna miss me, baby
On some frosty dawn
Mm hm, you know you'd better heed
You'd better heed my warning

It's a long, long road
That don't have a turn
You have to be an early bird
If you wanna catch a worm
They say absence makes
The heart grow fonder
So its plain to see
If the grass look greener yonder
Baby, that's where I'm gonna be
Mm hm, baby, you know you'd better heed
You'd better heed my warningback to top
Teardrops from My Eyes
Come back to me, baby
I feel so all alone
It rained last night
And things ain't right
Without my baby home

Every time it rains
I think of you
And that's the time
I feel so blue
When the rain starts falling
My love comes tumbling down
And it's raining
Teardrops from my eyes

If you see clouds
Here in my eyes
It's just because
You said good-bye
Although the sun is shining
There's no more summer skies
`Cause it's raining
Teardrops from my eyes

Remember the night you told me
Our love would always be
I wouldn't be blue and lonely
If you'd come back to me
Every single cloud
Would disappear
I'd wear a smile
If you were here
So baby, won't you hurry
Because I miss you so
And it's raining
Teardrops from my eyes

Remember the night you told me
Our love would always be
I wouldn't be blue and lonely
If you'd come back to me
Every single cloud
Would disappear
I'd wear a smile
If you were here
So baby, won't you hurry
Because I miss you so
And it's raining
Teardrops from my eyesback to top
Darlin' You Know I Love You
Darlin', darlin' you know I love you
I love you, for myself
But you're gone, gone and left me for someone else

I think of you, think of you every morning
I dream of you, every night
And I'd love to be with you always

When night began to fall
I cry, cry alone
And I wish, I could hold you in my arms tonight

Darlin', Darlin' you know I love you
I love you, for myself
But you're gone, gone and left me for someone elseback to top
Make Love to Me
Take me in your arms
And never let me go
Whisper to me softly
While the moon is low
Hold me close and tell me
What I wanna know
Say it to me gently
Let the sweet talk flow
Come a little closer
Make love to me

Kiss me once again
Before we say good-night
Take me in your loving arms
And squeeze me tight
Put me in a mood
So I can dream all night
Everybody's sleeping
So it's quite all right
Come a little closer
Make love to me

When you're near
So help me, dear
Chills run
Up and down my spine
Don't you know
I love you so
I won't be happy
Till you're mine
When I'm in your arms
You give my heart a treat
Everything about you
So doggone sweet
Every time we kiss
You make my life complete
Baby don't you know
You swept me off my feet
Now's it's time to tell you
Make love to me

When you're near
So help me, dear
Chills run
Up and down my spine
Don't you know
I love you so
I won't be happy
Till you're mine
When I'm in your arms
You give my heart a treat
Everything about you
So doggone sweet
Every time we kiss
You make my life complete
Baby don't you know
You swept me off my feet
Now's it's time to tell you
Make love to meback to top
I Can't Let You Go
What did I do wrong, baby
I tried to keep you satisfied
Whenever you needed me
I was right there by your side
Now tell me
What's the reason, baby
What's the reason
You're leaving me

I ain't got nobody else
Baby, it's always been you
`Cause there ain't nobody
Ain't nobody else
Can make me feel the way you do
I love you, I love you
I love you so, baby
You know I just can't
I just can't let you goback to top
