    Boom Boom Boom Boom

    By John Lee Hooker

    Boom Boom Boom Boom
    I'm gonna shoot you right down
    Right off of your feet
    Take you home with me
    Put you in my house
    Boom Boom Boom Boom

    I love to see you strut
    Up and down the floor
    When you talking to me
    That baby talk
    You knocking me out
    Right off of my feet

    Come on and shake
    Come on and shake
    Come on and shake
    Come on and shake
    Come baby strut that stuff

    When you're walking that walk
    And you talk that talk
    And you whisper in my ear
    Tell me that you love me
    I love that talk
    That baby talk

    You know I need you right now
    I mean right now
    You know I don't mean tomorrow
    You know I mean right now
    Come on, come on
    Come on shake it up, shake it
    Shake it up shake it up

    Shake it baby, come on shake
    Shake it baby, come on shake you baby
    Shake it baby, I don't mean maybe
    Shake it baby, come on and shake shake shake shake

    Boom Boom Boom Boom
    I'm gonna shoot you right down
    Take you in my arms
    I wanna make love to you
    Love that is true
    Boom Boom Boom Boom

    You know I need you right now
    I mean right now
    You know I don't mean tomorrow
    I m-m-m-mean right now
    Come on, come on
    Come on shake it up, shake it
    Shake it up shake it up

    Shake it baby, come on and shake
    Shake it baby, come on shake
    Shake it baby, I love the way you shake it baby
    Shake it baby, come on and shake shake shake shake...

    Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie-Woogie Flu

    By Smith/Vincent

    I wanna jump but I'm afraid I'll fall
    I wanna holler but the joint's too small
    Young man rhythm's got a hold on me too
    I got a rockin' pneumonia and a boogie woogie flu

    Call some other baby that ain't all
    I wanna kiss her but the girl's too tall
    Young man rhythm's got a hold on me too
    I got a rockin' pneumonia and a boogie woogie flu

    I wanna squeeze her but I'm way too low
    I would be runnin' but my feets too slow
    Young man rhythm's got a hold on me too
    I got a rockin' pneumonia and a boogie woogie flu

    I wanna scream I want you all to know
    I would be runnin' but my feets too slow
    Young man rhythm's got a hold on me too
    I got a rockin' pneumonia and a boogie woogie flu

    Baby callin' now I'm hurryin' home
    I know she's leavin' cause I'm takin' too long
    Young man rhythm's got a hold on me too
    I got a rockin' pneumonia and a boogie woogie flu

    I wanna scream, I wanna scream, I wanna scream
    (Repeat many times)

    Rollin' Like a Pebble in the Sand

    By Rudy Toombs

    I roam this crazy town
    Wonderin' where can my baby be
    Is there no love for me
    Rollin' like a pebble in the sand

    I'm in the cold and rain
    Needing some word of sympathy
    Why must I always be
    Rollin' like a pebble in the sand

    Tryin', tryin', tryin' to find my way
    Hopin' you're gonna lead me
    Back to her arms one day

    When night shadows fall
    My heart cries out in misery
    Why did she set me free
    Rollin' like a pebble in the sand

    When night shadows fall
    My heart cries out in misery
    Why did she set me free
    Rollin' like a pebble in the sand

    Good Times / Bad Woman

    By Barden / Tench

    My whole world comes tumbling down
    You hurt me so bad
    And I don't know why

    You've got me looking for a good time
    With a bad woman
    You've got me looking for a good time
    With a bad woman

    We had a good thing going now
    Looks like it's gone
    I still don't know why what I did was so wrong

    Now I'm looking for a good time
    With a bad woman
    You've got me looking for a good time
    With a bad woman

    We had a good thing going now
    Looks like it's gone
    I still don't know why what I did was so wrong

    I'm looking for a good time
    With a bad woman
    You've got me looking for a good time
    With a bad woman

    Yes, I'm looking for a good time
    With a bad woman
    Now I'm looking for a good time
    With a bad woman

    Some Change

    By Boz Scaggs

    Some change comes down for the better
    You feel it's cool
    Then some come down with the weather
    You take that in too
    But like some change in your pocket
    It always seems to be too little too late
    I guess I'll break out a few pesos
    Cause I'm getting where I like the view
    And if you're feeling lucky
    I aint just passing through
    I might change some too

    There was a time I was lowdown for action
    I was red hot as a rule
    Certified guaranteed satisfaction
    I was one happening fool
    But I know I was losing it
    I know I was missing it by a country mile
    Like Noah said you'd better wake up
    You don't want to get stuck in this zoo
    Cause when the boat leaves the dock
    He aint waiting round for you
    You'd better change some too

    Some change ... some don't

    Repeat both verses...

    Some change...some don't
    Some change and some don't.
