Stand By Me

“Stand By Me”

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No, I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand, stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
No, I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

And darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me

Darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble, won’t you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me
Won’t you stand now?
Oh, stand, stand by me

Knock On Wood

I don’t want to lose you, this good thing
that I got ’cause if I do
I will surely,
surely lose a lot.
‘Cause your love is better
than any love I know.
It’s like thunder, lightning,
the way you love me is frightening.
I’d better knock, on wood, baby.

Well I’m not superstitious about you
but I can’t take no chance.
You got me spinnin’, baby,
Baby I’m in a trance.
‘Cause your love is better
than any love I know.
It’s like thunder, lightning,
the way you love me is frightening.
I’d better knock, on wood, baby.

Break

Ain’t no secret, that woman
She fills my lovin’ cup
She see’s to it, that I get enough
Just one touch from her
You know it means so much

It’s like thunder, lightning,
the way you love me is frightening.

I’d better knock (knock knock) on wood baby.

(knock knock)
Oh Yeah!

I think I’d better knock (knock knock) on wood
I think I’d better knock (knock knock) on wood
I think I’d better knock (knock knock) on wood

The Snake

The Snake
Al Wilson

On her way to work one morning
Down the path along side the lake
A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake
His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew
“Poor thing,” she cried, “I’ll take you in and I’ll take care of you”
“Take me in tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake
She wrapped him up all cozy in a comforter of silk
And laid him by her fireside with some honey and some milk
She hurried home from work that night and soon as she arrived
She found that pretty snake she’d taken to had been revived
“Take me in, tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake
She clutched him to her bosom, “You’re so beautiful,” she cried
“But if I hadn’t brought you in by now you might have died”
She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight
Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite
“Take me in, tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake
“I saved you,” cried the woman
“And you’ve bitten me, but why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”
“Oh shut up, silly woman,” said the reptile with a grin
“You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in
“Take me in, tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake

In The Midnight Hour

In The Midnight Hour
Wilson Pickett

I’m gonna wait ’till the midnight hour
That’s when my love come tumbling down
I’m gonna wait ’till the midnight hour
When there’ no one else around
I’m gonna take you, girl, and hold you
And do all things I told you, in the midnight hour
Yes I am, oh yes I am
One thing I just wanna say, right here
I’m gonna wait till the stars come out
And see that twinkle in your eyes
I’m gonna wait ’till the midnight hour
That’s when my love begins to shine
You’re the only girl I know
Can really love me so, in the midnight hour
Oh yeah, in the midnight hour
Yeah, all right, play it for me one time, now
I’m gonna wait ’till the midnight hour
That’s when my love come tumbling down
I’m gonna wait, way in the midnight hour
That’s when my love begin to shine, just you and I
Oh, baby, just you and I
Nobody around, baby, just you and I
Oh, right, you know what?
I’m gonna hold you in my arms, just you and I
Oh yeah, in the midnight hour
Oh, baby, in the midnight hour

Soul Man

 

Comin’ to you on a dust road
Good lovin’, I got a truck load
And when you get it, you got something
So don’t worry, cause I’m coming
I’m a soul man, I’m a soul man
I’m a soul man, I’m a soul man, I’ve got it all
Got what I got the hard way
And I’ll make it better each and every day
So honey, don’t you fret
Cause you ain’t seen nothing yet
I’m a soul man, I’m a soul man, play it Steve
I’m a soul man, I’m a soul man
I was brought up on a side street, listen now
I learned how to love before I could eat
I was educated from good stock
When I start lovin’, oh, I can’t stop
I’m a soul man, I’m a soul man
I’m a soul man, I’m a soul man
Well, grab the rope and I’ll pull you in
Give you hope and be your only boyfriend
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m talkin’ about a soul man
I’m a soul man, and you’re a soul man
I’m a soul man, oh no, soul man
I’m a soul man, and you’re a soul man
And you’re a soul man…
