    Mama Divine
    Album: Metropolitan Man. Posted by JJean

    First time that I saw her closely
    Swinging down the street so proud
    I could not retain my cool
    And I was moved to shout out loud
    Hey Mama I could do things
    That would make you forever mine
    Hey Mama come and get me
    Find out why I'm called divine
    Yes my name it is Divine
    I can give you a rea=l good time

    She flashed me a smile so dazzling
    I was forced to don my shades
    I put my tremblin' arms around herWhispered Mama don't be afraid
    Hey Mama I could show you
    Why the world is round and fast
    Why you need a young man like me
    I can make you make it last
    Yes my name it is divine and I can give you a real good time

    So we took the proper turning
    WE married and had children three
    It's just not what my Mama can do
    It's what my Mama can do for me
    Hey Mama didn't I tell you
    Didn't your baby say don't wait
    When a country boy says something
    He will give it to you straight
    Hey Mama I could show you
    Why the round is round and fast
    Why you need a young man like me
    I can make you make it last
    Yes my name it is Divine

    Mama Don't Go Home
    Album: Lucky Day. Posted by Jean


    Mama don't go home, don't leave me alone
    Dance with me tonight, the moon and starts are bright
    Mama move around, listen to the sounds
    Now ain't the music sweet, Mama move your feet
    If you are discontent dancing is heaven sent
    Let me revive the feeling in you
    If you left behind the dancing in your mind
    I have a few suggestions for you
    Mama start again, please release your brain
    Don't be so uptight, dancing is delight.

    Mercy, Mercy
    By Covay/Miller
    Album: The Price To Play. Posted by hollyh


    Have mercy
    Have mercy, baby
    Have mercy
    Have mercy on me

    Well I went to see the gypsy
    And had my fortune read
    She said my prize, my baby's gonna leave me
    I said Oh no in fact she's one of the best

    Have mercy
    Have mercy, baby
    Have mercy
    Have mercy on me

    I said now if you leave me baby,
    I said now girl, if you put me down
    I'm gonna go to the nearest bridge
    And jump overboard and drown

    Have mercy
    Have mercy, baby
    Have mercy
    Have mercy on me

    I said now hey hey hey
    Hey hey child
    Tell me what you're tryin' to do
    I said now hey hey hey
    Hey hey child
    Please don't say we're through

    Have mercy
    Have mercy, baby
    Have mercy
    Have mercy on me

    I said now if you stay, believe me
    I tell you, tell you what I'm gonna do
    I'm gonna get myself a job seven days a week
    And bring the money back to you

    Have mercy
    Have mercy, baby
    Have mercy
    Have mercy on me
    Have mercy on me...

    Move On Drifter
    By Washington
    Album: The Price To Play. Posted by hollyh


    Somebody somewhere
    Please lend me, lend me an ear
    But all I hear is

    "You are one, you will always be
    Move on, drifter, don't you bother me
    You are one, you will always be
    Move on, drifter, don't you bother me"

    I know that someone's
    Got a little time to spare
    To listen to the troubles
    I kept in from year to year
    And I promise
    It won't take too much of your time
    I've got to talk to someone
    Before I lose my mind
    But all I hear is

    "You are one, you will always be
    Move on, drifter, don't you bother me
    You are one, you will always be
    Move on, drifter, don't you bother me"

    Oh, a drifter I am
    But do you know why?
    But like the rest, you're much too busy
    So turn your head to the side
    There are many like me
    Just needing a little of someone's time
    To tell all the things
    That's been troubling their mind
    But all they hear is

    "You are one, you will always be
    Move on, drifter, don't you bother me
    You are one, you will always be
    Move on, drifter, don't you bother me"

    My Home Town
    Album: O Lucky Man. Posted by hollyh

    Down on the corner of the street
    Where I was born we used to meet
    And sing the old songs
    We called them dole songs
    And we'd harmonize so clear
    Even though it was the beer
    That made the tears run
    About the years gone by
    And we'd go home and kiss the wife
    Hoping a kiss could change your life
    That's how romance is
    No second chances
    Back in my home town

    (instrumental break)

    Things aren't so very different now
    Poor folk must get along somehow
    You live forever on the never never
    Back in my home town

    My Old Kentucky Home
    By Randy Newman
    Posted by hollyh


    Turpentine and dandelion wine
    I've turned the corner and I'm feelin' fine
    Shootin' at the birds on the telephone line
    Pickin' em off with this gun of mine
    I got a fire in my belly
    Got a fire in my head
    Goin' higher and higher
    Until I'm dead

    Brother Gene, he's big and mean
    And he don't have much to say
    He had a little woman who he whupped each day
    But now she's gone away
    I got drunk last night
    Kicked mama down the stairs
    But I'm all right so I don't care

    Let the sun shine bright on
    My Old Kentucky Home
    And the young folks roll on the floor
    Oh, let the sun shines bright on
    My Old Kentucky Home
    Keep those hard times away from my door

    Sister Sue, she's short and stout
    She didn't grow up - she grew out
    Mama says she's plain but she's just bein' kind
    Papa thinks she's pretty but he's almost blind
    Don't let her out much 'cept at night
    But I don't care 'cause I'm all right

    Let the sun shine bright on
    My Old Kentucky Home
    And the young folks roll on the floor
    Oh, let the sun shine bright on
    My Old Kentucky Home
    Keep those hard times away from my door

    Turpentine and dandelion wine
    I've turned the corner and I'm feelin' fine
    Shootin' at the birds on the telephone line
    Pickin' em off with this gun of mine
    I got a fire in my belly
    Got a fire in my head
    Goin' higher and higher
    Until I'm dead
