I Thank You
You didn't have to love me like you did
But you did, but you did.
And I thank you.
You didn't have to love me like you did
But you did, but you did.
And I thank you.
But you took your love to someone else
I wouldn't know what it meant to be loved to death

You made me feel like I've never felt
Kisses so good I had to holler for help
You didn't have to squeeze it but you did
But you did but you did
And I thank you.
You didn't have to hold it but you did
But you did but you did
And I thank you.

Every day was something new,
You put on your bag and your fine to-do
You got me trying new things too
Just so I can keep up with you.

You didn't have to shake it but you did
But you did but you did
And I thank you.
You didn't have to make it like you did
But you did but you did
And I thank you.

All my life I've been shortchanged
Without your love baby it's a crying shame
But now I know what the fellas talking about
Hear me say that they been turned out
I want to thank you
I want to thank you
I want to thank you
Yes, I want to thank youback to top
She Loves My Automobile
She don't love me, she love my automobile.
She don't love me, she love my automobile.
Well she would do anything just to slide behind the wheel.
She said what's it gonna take for you to lay your top on down?
She said what's it gonna take for you to lay your top on down?
I said honey why don't you ask me when we get to the outskirts of town.

Well now she don't care if I'm stoned or sloppy drunk.
Well she don't care if I'm stoned or sloppy drunk,
Long as she got the keys and there's a spare wheel in her trunk.back to top
I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide
{an original catch phrase for the ages, it's the lyrical and musical
Embodiment of the low rider ethos. though millions swore they'd heard
It before, the national anthem of the u.s. of zz first greeted dawn's
Early light on 1979's deguello, their first for warner bros.}

Well I was rollin' down the road in some cold blue steel,
I had a blues man in back, and a beautician at the wheel.
We going downtown in the middle of the night
We laughing and I'm jokin' and we feelin' alright.
Oh I'm bad, I'm nationwide.
Yes I'm bad, I'm nationwide.

Easin' down the highway in a new cadillac,
I had a fine fox in front, I had three more in the back.
They sportin' short dresses, wearin' spike-heel shoes,
They smokin' lucky strikes, and wearing nylons too.
'cause we bad, we nationwide.
Yeah we bad, we nationwide.

Well I was movin' down the road in my v-8 ford,
I had a shine on my boots, I had my sideburns lowered.
With my new york brim and my gold tooth displayed,
Nobody give me trouble cause they know I got it made.
I'm bad, I'm nationwide.
Well I'm bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, I'm nationwide.back to top
A Fool for Your Stockings
Is it you again outside,
Just banging on the front door?
You say you had enough,
Now you're coming' back for more,
But that's alright.
I said that that's alright.
I may not want to admit it,
I'm just a fool for your stockings I believe.

Now I don't mind when you send money
And bring your girlfriends with you,
But how could one be so thoughtless to try
And handle less than two?
But that's alright.
I said that that's alright, baby.
I may not want to admit it,
I'm just a fool for your stockings I believe.

Now I'm tellin' everybody
It seems too good to be true:
Sweet things can always get sweeter.
I know mine did, how about you?
Yes, it's alright.
I said, yes it is, that's alright.
I may not want to admit it,
I'm just a fool for your stockings I believe.back to top
Manic Mechanic
You want to race?
If you insist.
At that price, I can't resist.
That's right, that's right, that's right.

Tonight it ain't right,
I got to have me a week.
But I'll be back for you, jack,
And I'll let the machine speak.
That's right, that's right, that's right.

Showdown? you bet.
And I haven't saddled my pony yet.
Have mercy, miss percy.
I done put the coon tune on this bet.
That's right, that's right, that's right.back to top
Dust My Broom
I'm gonna get up in the morning
I believe I'll dust my broom.
I'm gonna get up in the morning
I believe I'll dust my broom.
Well my best gal I'll be leaving
So my friend, get out my room

I'm gonna write a letter to china
See if my baby's over there.
I'm gonna write a letter to china
See if my baby's over there.
If she ain't up in the hawaiian islands,
Must be in ethiopia somewhere

I believe believe my time alone
I believe believe my time alone
I've had to quit my baby and give up my happy homeback to top
Lowdown in the Street
Well there comes lola, out of control-a:
She just loves those rhythm and blues.
And miss ivy will be arriving;
In leopard skin tights she's willing to cruise.

It's a fiend scene and it happens 'bout once a week.
So roam on in, it ain't no sin to get low down in the street.

There's jimmy and jojo, there's kim and keith,
Way outside the eyes of cool.
And sweet m.b., and there's little g.b.
Everybody wants to be their fool.

It's a fiend scene and it happens here ev'ry week.
So roam on in, it ain't no sin to get low down in the street.

Some nights are lonely, some nights are lazy,
But ain't nobody try and slip away.
They'll make you loose. they'll make you crazy.
Know what I mean, what you say, what you say.

It's a fiend scene and it happens 'bout once a week.
So roam on in, it ain't no sin to get low down in the street.back to top
Hi Fi Mama
I want your hi fi mama, won't you let me play it tonight
I want your hi fi mama, won't you let me play it tonight
I put the needle in the groove, baby while you douse the lights.

I play it on your dresser, play it upside your wall
I play it in your kitchen, even play it in your hall
I play it anywhere you want it, any old time at all.

Hi fi lo fi no fi's just fine with me.
Hi fi lo fi no fi's just fine with me.
And if you want to give me stereo first give me vitamin e.
I got your name and your number.back to top
Cheap Sunglasses
{bespectacled audience participation favorite, bausch & lomb stockholders
Were gratified to find this deguello eye-opener generated additional
Dividends as wayfarer sales soared. shades of insider trading? }

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 yeahback to top
Esther Be the One
Esther be the one that shoots a machine gun
Whether you like it or not.
Midnight or daylight, stay out of her sight
'cuz I heard she's one heck of a shot.
Esther be the one, she's the only one.
She'll get you with her gun when the wolf starts howlin' at the moon.

And you will feel her love bullets when you look her in the eyes.
There ain't no way to escape.
And that's when her fever will materialize,
But it ain't no unfortunate fate.
Esther be the one, she's the only one.
She'll get you with her gun when the wolf starts howlin' at the moon.

If she gets you in a corner, don't let her mess you 'round
And don't let her blow you away.
If you can't dig on esther, you turn and leave town
'cause if you think she's bad you ought to see her sister.
Esther be the one, but she's not the only one.
She'll get you with her gun when the wolf starts howlin' at the moon.back to top
