  1. Tell It Like It Is

    Tell It Like It Is

    If you want something to play with
    Go and find yourself a toy
    Baby my time is too expensive
    And I’m not a little boy

    If you are serious
    Don’t play with my heart
    It makes me furious
    But if you want me to love you
    Then a baby I will, girl you know that I will

    Tell it like it is
    Don’t be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide
    But I know deep down inside me
    I believe you love me, forget your foolish pride

    Life is too short to have sorrow
    You may be here today and gone tomorrow
    You might as well get what you want
    So go on and live, baby go on and live

    Tell it like it is
    I’m nothing to play with
    Go and find yourself a toy
    But I… Tell it like it is
    My time is too expensive and I’m not your little boy

  2. Over You

    Over You

    There’ll be some slow walkin’
    Gonna be some sad talkin’
    There’ll be some flowers bringin’
    Gonna be some sad singin’
    Over you, I say over you
    Over you, pretty baby
    If I ever hear you say we’re through

    There’ll be some long black limousines
    People peepin’ from their window screens
    Parade of cars with their headlights on
    All of that will be goin’ on
    Over you, I said over you
    Over you, pretty baby
    If I ever hear you say we’re through

    There’ll be a hole about six feet deep
    For you baby to take your sleep
    Into a pine box an’ down you’ll go
    Where you will stay where it’s free of snow
    Over you, I said over you
    Over you, pretty baby

    If I ever hear you say we’re through
    All your folks will be dressed in black
    Ride a long black cadillac
    Yeah, baby they’ll be puttin’ you away
    The funeral home’ll have the business that day
    Over you, I said over you
    Over you, pretty baby
    If I ever hear you say we’re through

    Say I want to slay you baby, whoa now
    Over you, pretty baby
    If I ever hear you say we’re through

    Say you’ll never leave me
    I say you’ll never leave me
    Say I’m gonna get rid of you , baby
    If I ever hear you say we’re through

    Whoa, I love you
    No tellin’ what I’d do
    That’s why baby
    I want to do all these things to you

  3. Get out of My Life Woman

    Get out of My Life Woman

    Get out of my life, leave me alone
    Don’t write me no letter,
    Don’t call me on the phone
    Well, I’m trying to forget that I love you so
    So let me down easy baby, just let me go

    You played a game, I was a fool
    When I see you with someone else,
    I just keep my cool
    And now I’m trying to forget that I love you so
    So let me down easy baby, just let me go

    Well I’m alone now, as long as I could
    I went along with your program,
    Like you knew I would
    But one of these days now,
    I say now it won’t be long
    You’re gonna look for me
    And honey child, you know baby I’ll be gone

    Get out of my life, leave me alone
    Don’t write me no letter,
    Don’t call me on the phone
    Well I’m trying to forget that I love you so
    So let me down easy baby, just let me go

    Well, I’m trying to forget that I love you so
    So let me down easy baby, just let me go
    I said let me go baby
    Come on, come on, let me go now
    I said come on, come on, come on, come on, whoa

  4. I Found Another Love

    I Found Another Love

    You can go, go, go
    ’cause I know, know, know
    I have found another love to take your place

    Down down down came the tears
    Since you went away and left me here
    But up, up, up went my love, love, love
    I have found another love to take your place

    Fast, fast, fast went the train
    That took you to the arms of another man
    But you can go, go, go
    ’cause I know, know, know

    I have found another love to take your place
    I thought that I could live without you
    I thought that I would never love again
    Someone came along with a love so strong
    I forgot about you and once again I feel like a man

    Whoa, I have found a love that’s true
    I hope that you have done the same thing too
    If you’re not happy, don’t come back to me
    I have found another love to take your place
    I have found another love to take your place

  5. Don’t Cry

    Don’t Cry

    Don’t cry, don’t cry, little darlin’ don’t cry
    I’ll not say my last good bye
    Whoa, so don’t cry, don’t cry, little darlin’ don’t cry
    ’cause I’ll return someday

    So don’t weep, don’t weep, little darlin’ no, no don’t weep
    My heart tells me you’re in love with me
    Whoa, so don’t weep, don’t weep, little darlin’ don’t weep
    ’cause I’ll return someday soon

    (to take you in my arms) and to squeeze you tight
    (to capture all your charms) every, every, every day now
    Don’t cry, don’t cry, little darlin’ no don’t cry
    I’m not saying my last good bye
    Whoa, no don’t cry, don’t cry, little darlin’ don’t cry

  6. Sweet Little Mama

    Sweet Little Mama

    There’s a new girl in my neighborhood
    She’s a sweet little thing, she looks real good
    She gets everybody’s attention around
    They call her sweet little mama

    All the boys wink when they see her
    Even the girls smile when they meet her
    Everybody’s trying to be first
    To hold sweet little mama

    She got a certain secret in her smile
    That makes you wanna stay awhile
    But the minute you get too close
    She bursts out with a loud, loud cry

    Stop by my house and you can’t miss her
    This little girl is my little sister
    She’s about 9 days old
    They call her sweet little mama

    Say she got a certain secret in her smile
    That makes you wanna stay awhile
    The minute you get too close
    She bursts out with a loud, loud cry

    Stop by my house, you can’t miss her
    This little girl is my little sister
    Well, she’s about 9 days old
    They call her sweet little mama

  7. I’m Waiting at the Station

    I’m Waiting at the Station

    Train whistle blowin’ around the bend
    But I can hear it comin’ in
    That’s the train my baby’s on
    But now she’s gonna bring her home

    Got a letter yesterday
    This is what she had to say
    Meet me at the station a quarter to ten
    Let’s try it over again

    Waitin’ at the station happy as can be, now
    Waitin’ at the station for my baby
    My lonely nights are over from this day on
    Since my baby’s coming back home

    The train pulled in a few minutes late
    But I didn’t mind that little wait
    That train is carrying medicine for heartaches and pain
    For this lonely man

    Everybody’s gettin’ off one by one
    Tellin’ their friend where they’ve been and what they’ve done
    But where is my girl, everybody’s off the train
    She made a fool of me again

    Waitin’ at the station sad as can be, now
    Waitin’ at the station for my baby, now
    My nights will still be lonely on and on
    Since my baby didn’t come home

    Waitin’ at the station sad as can be, now
    Waitin’ at the station for my baby
    My nights will still be lonely, on and on
    Since my baby didn’t come home

    Waitin’ at the station sad as can be, now
    Waitin’ at the station for my baby
    My nights will still be lonely, on and on
    Since my baby didn’t come home

  8. How Many Times

    How Many Times

    How many times must I say I love you
    How many times must I say I love you, love you
    You treat me so cold honey
    You opened my nose, honey
    And then you laughed, uh huh, uh huh
    You made me feel bad, uh huh, uh huh
    You made me cry honey
    I wanted to die

    How many times must I say I’m sorry
    How many times must I say I’m sorry, sorry

    You opened my nose honey
    And then you laughed, uh huh, uh huh
    You made me feel bad, uh huh, uh huh
    You made me cry honey
    I wanted to die

    You brought me through changes
    I’ve never been through before
    I said I was leaving but I never got out that door
    I’m never at ease honey
    I’m always on my knees honey
    I’m begging you please, whoa to forgive me please

    How many times must I say I’m sorry
    How many times must I say I’m sorry, sorry

    You made me feel bad
    I wanted to die

  9. Let’s Live

    Let’s Live

    Why torture yourself, when you know you’re in love
    Throw your pride in the ocean and be happy beneath the stars above
    Confess your feelings to the one’s you love
    And let’s live, before it’s too late
    Let’s live

    Why deprive yourself, of the wonders of life
    Time is getting shorter, there’s no reason for those lonely nights
    If you don’t, if you don’t love me, you’ll miss the boat
    And let’s live, before it’s too late
    Let’s live

    Why should you live in a sad state of mind
    Problems, problems, problems all the time
    Do your best to get them off your chest
    Everything, everything will be just fine

    Love is nice , love is sometimes cruel
    When you’ve been in love you have been to the greatest school
    So try and make an “a” honey, and I’ll do the same
    Let’s live, before it’s too late
    Let’s live, before it’s too late
    You know, I know, before it’s too late
    So, come on, come on, come on
    Let’s live

  10. Every Day

    Every Day

    Every day along about noon
    Oh how I’m dreaming of the day that I’ll be home soon

    And every day along about one
    Oh how I remember how we used to have fun

    And every day along about two
    Whoa how I’m so lonely in a world so blue

    And every day now along about three
    When I’m dreaming of a day that I’ll be free

    And every day along about four
    But I cry, whoa I cry, till I can cry no more

    And every day along about five
    I’m writing you a letter with a tear in my eye

    And every day whoa just about six
    Whoa how I remember how we used to kiss

    And every, every, every day now oh how it reminds me of you
    Whoa I wanna tell you, please listen to me
    ’cause I love you, love you, I love you

  11. Reality

    Reality

    Even though we’re apart
    You’re still right here in my heart
    Your hands are still in mine
    I can still hear you whispering words divine

    I can feel your warm embrace
    Just the thought of it puts a smile upon my face
    But my imagination, whoa I said it’s so strong
    But reality keep assuring me I’m all alone

    But now from my lips comes a song
    With tears in my eyes
    ‘Cuz now you’re gone
    So all your sweet talk

    Even though we’re apart
    You’re still right here in my heart
    My imagination, oh I said it’s so strong,
    But reality keeps assuring me that I’m all alone

    My imagination, oh so strong
    But reality keeps assuring me that I’m all alone

  12. Wrong Number

    Wrong Number

    Every time the telephone rings I hold my breath
    Hoping that it’s you, I’m scared to death
    Phone went ring, my crippled heart cried
    Let it be you, on the line
    Then a voice say hello, can I speak to Joe?
    Wrong number, I’m sorry, good bye

    Pity the fool who loves you so
    If you found someone new, don’t let me know
    The phone rang once again,
    My heart skipped a beat
    Must be you, this is my belief
    Then the voice on the other end
    Say can I speak to Ben?
    Wrong number, I’m sorry, good bye

    I live simply on the memory
    Of your love that was once for me
    Come back my darling please
    And set my heart at ease
    Then a voice say hello,
    Darling you know I love you so
    Hold on baby, ’til I tell these blues good bye
    ‘Til I tell these blues good bye
