Sugar Babe
(Steve Miller)

Way down in Alabama
There's a girl just a waitin' for me
She don't have to worry
She don't have to hurry
Lord, I keep her so happy

She's my sugar baby
Sugar, sugar baby
Sugar baby
Sugar, sugar baby

Lordy, Lordy pretty mama
Yes you're tough enough
Lordy, Lordy mama
Go on and strut your stuff

My sugar baby
Sugar, sugar baby
Sugar baby
Sugar baby

You know this love
Is gonna keep on gettin' stronger
You know my love
Is gonna last you longer

Sugar baby
Sugar, sugar baby
Sugar baby
Sugar, sugar baby

Sugar baby
Sugar, sugar baby
Sugar baby
Sugar, sugar baby

You know this love
Is gonna keep on gettin' stronger
You know my love
Is gonna last you longer

Sugar baby
Sugar, sugar baby

Mary Lou
STEVE MILLER BAND
MARY LOU


I'm gonna tell you a story
'Bout ol' Mary Lou
I mean the kind of a girl
That make a fool of you.

She make a young man old
And an old man pay
The way she took my money
Was a crying shame.

Mary Lou, Mary Lou
She took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, Mary Lou
She took my diamond ring
She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my Caddy and she drove afar.

Put a detective
On her trail
The post office thought
They'd chase her by the mail.

She got picked up
And then was put in jail
Stroked the judge
Just to go her bail.

Mary Lou, Mary Lou
She took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, Mary Lou
She took my diamond ring
She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my Caddy and she drove afar.

She left Detroit
To go to Kalamazoo
Made her a fortune
Out of fools like you.

Met her a rich man
Who was married and had some kids
Stroked that cat
Until he flipped his lid.

Mary Lou, Mary Lou
She took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, Mary Lou
She took my diamond ring
She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my Caddy and she drove afar.

She came back into town
About a week ago
Told me she's sorry
She had hurt me so.

I had a '65 Ford
And a two dollar bill
The way she took that
Lord, it gave me a thrill.

Mary Lou
She took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, Mary Lou
She took my diamond ring
She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my Caddy and she drove afar.back to top

Your Cash Ain't Nothin' But Trash
(Charles Calhoun)

[Spoken:]
Your cash ain't nothing but trash (Take 1).
Here we go.
Yeah, you may have heart about the gangster of love and the space cowboy, but I'm gonna whip a cat on you right now who's had more trouble, trials and tribulations.

One, two, three, hey
Yeah
It's alright
Look here

I was walking down the main track
One night
I met a fine chick
She was built just right

She stopped when I flashed my roll
I told her she could have all of my dough

She turned around and with a frown
She said this ain't no circus
And I don't need a clown

Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
And there ain't no need in your hangin' around

Just to make a hit with that chick
I tried to get a Cadillac right quick
The man at the place he looked so strange
I had 900 bucks and some change

We disagreed
I tried to plead
Well, he said I ain't a chicken
And I don't need your feed

Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
Well, baby you're crawling way past your speed

I was walkin' into town in my white bucks
A man with a gun, he said hands up
I tried to get away but too slow
He got me and took all of my dough

I heard him shout
As he cut out
Well you ain't lost nothin'
What you cryin' about

Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
And he took my watch and I passed out

I woke up in the arms of a big cop
Police station
Next stop
Judge swung his fist down
Plunk plunk

$20 fine cause you're drunk
Pick up the dough
And you can go
All I had was a buffalo

Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
Your cash ain't nothin' but trash
But I'm sure gonna get me some moreback to top

THE LOVIN' CUP


My mama
She done told me
Soon you be a man
And when you find your own woman
You got to love her the best that you can.

Well, if you give your love to somebody
Make sure they don't use you up
And if you get your love in return
Make sure you fill the lovin' cup.

Oh, yeah

Well, I'm goin' to the country
Mama, don't you want to go
The sun's gonna shine in our back door

And when you find your own woman
Gotta hold to her the best that you can.

I'm goin' to the country

Something to Believe In
STEVE MILLER BAND
SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN


Ooooooooo
Ooooooooo
You give me something to come home to, baby
You give me something to believe in
I know in my heart
You have loved me from the start.

Whoa, baby
I know that it's real
I can tell by the way that I feel

Oh
You give me something to believe in
Yes, and you give me something to go on living for
And I know in my heart
You have loved me
From the start.

Whoa, baby
I know that it's real
I can tell by the way that I feel

Lie down, my love, lie down
I will sing you a lullaby
Lie down, my love, lie down
Rest easy and close your eyes
Like clear water in a mountain stream
I will come to you in your dreams
Like pictures reflected in a mountain lake
I will be with you when you wake.

You give me something to hold on to
You give me something to believe in
And I know in my heart
You have loved me
From the start.

Whoa, baby
I know that it's real
I can tell by the way that I feel
Oh, oh

Lie down, my love, lie down
I will sing you a lullaby
Lie down, my love, lie down
Rest easy and close your eyes
Like clear water in a mountain stream
I will comfort you in your dreams
Like pictures reflected in a mountain lake
I will be with you when you wake.back to top
