01: Walking Blues
2:06
(Written by Robert Johnson.)

Woke up this morning, feel round for my shoe,
You know about that baby, them ole walking blues,
I woke up this morning, feel round for my shoe,
You know about that baby, woah the walking blues.

I’m leaving this morning, go ride the blind,
I’ve been mistreated, I don’t mind dying,
Woah this morning, I had to go rob you blind,
I’ve been mistreated, woah I don’t mind dying.

People tell me, the walking blues ain’t bad,
Well it’s the worst ole feeling, I ever had,
People tell me, the walking blues ain’t bad,
Well it’s the worst ole feeling, woah I ever had.

But baby tonight, here’s where it ends.

But baby tonight, loneliness be gone.

The moment that you walked in, I knew this love was for real,
I’ve done my share of fantasies at night,
But baby tonight, tonight’s gonna be all right.

03: Rock And Roll
3:48

Bring me my guitar, cos baby I’m a star,
Tonight we go too far, yeah that’s right,
Cos we’re going to a show, like you’ve never seen before,
So come on baby let’s go.

It’s time to rock and roll.

Yeah you looking hot, I’m liking it a lot,
But we gotta hit the spot, come on lets go,
I got a limousine in gold, and it’s only ten years old,
So come on baby let’s go.

It’s time to rock and roll.

Ahh baby don’t start me cussing,
I ain’t holding this guitar for nothing,
Come on baby, daddy pops gotsta flow.

It’s time to rock and… Oh.

This could be our chance, of music, sex, romance,
So shake your ass and dance, yeah that’s good,
Cos everybody knows, if music comes and goes,
Nothing will shake your soul, like a little bit of rock and… Roll.

It’s time to rock and roll.

One day when the truth is free, the world will be convinced,
A king of pop could never be, long live the Prince.

04: 10,000ft
3:24

I can’t eat, I can’t sleep,
I can’t laugh, I can’t weep,
Cos I love you, I love you.

I can’t run, I can’t hide,
I can’t leave, I can’t lie,
Cos I love you, I love you.

And I feel, and I sound, like I’m 10,000ft underground,
I can’t stand, I can’t fly, I fell 10,000ft from the sky,
In love with you,
In love with you.

I can’t speak, I can’t talk,
I’m so weak, I can’t walk,
Cos I love you, I love you.

Everything that I do, everything I’ll be,
I do it for you, just to make you see,
I love you, I love you.

And I feel, and I sound, like I’m 10,000ft underground,
I can’t stand, I can’t fly, I fell 10,000ft from the sky,
In love with you,
In love with you,
Cos I love you.

05: Hurt Me
3:45

Oowarrraaaghhh…

Hmmm, check out that ass, what do you see?
A little bit of heaven? A sweet little piece?
But I know you babe, I know your kind,
You’d get in my heart, then you’d get in my mind.

And you’d just hurt me (Hurt me)… Hurt me (Hurt me).

I know you’re cute babe, any fool could tell,
But cute won’t save me, when I’m left in hell,
And those tight jeans babe, really show that ass,
I really wanna taste it, but I’ll have to pass.

Cos you’d just hurt me (Hurt me)… Hurt me (Hurt me).

Well it makes me wonder, what are we to do?
You can’t have me babe, and I can’t have you,
So I got’s to go now, got’s to go on home,
Cos if I can’t love you, I got’s to leave you alone.

Cos you’d just hurt me (Hurt me)… Hurt me (Hurt me).
Hurt me (Hurt me)… Hurt me…
Hurt me (Hurt me)… Hurt me…
Hurt me (Hurt me)… Hurt me…
Hurt me (Hurt me)… Hurt me…
Hurt me (Hurt me)… Hurt me…
Hurt me (Hurt me)… Hurt me.

06: Cookie Jar
3:31

I was getting high on a Saturday night,
With the people that I call my friends,
And I don’t know why I looked into the sky,
I guess I knew it all had to end.

Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?
We know who you are, we know, we know.
Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?
We know who you are, we know, we know.

When I come down I hit the ground,
With a force that I’ve seldom seen,
When I pick myself up, I take a good look,
At the places that I’ve never been.

Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?
We know who you are, we know, we know.
Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?
We know who you are, we know, we know.

Billy, do you wanna go faster?… Faster.
Billy Whizz, it’s gonna cost ya… Cost ya.

Billy, do you wanna go faster?… (Faster) Faster.
Billy Whizz, it’s gonna cost ya… (Cost ya) Cost ya.

Billy, do you wanna go faster?… (Faster) Faster.
(Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?),
(We know who you are, we know, we know…).

Billy Whizz, it’s gonna cost ya… (Cost ya) Cost ya.
(Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?),
(We know who you are, we know, we know…).

Billy, do you wanna go faster?… (Faster) Faster.
(Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?),
(We know who you are, we know, we know…).

Billy, do you wanna go faster?… (Fasterssss) Faster.
(Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?),
(We know who you are, we know, we know…).

07: The Lick
4:18

When your hips go around in a circular motion,
And I think I’m gonna drown in the middle of your ocean,
You bounce up and down and you do it real quick, that’s what I call…

The Lick,
Yeah that’s the lick,
When you’re sucking that…
That’s the lick.

When you grab me by my head when I’m licking your emotion,
I’ve gotta calm you down cos you’re causing a commotion,
You bounce up and down like a pogo stick, that’s what I call…

The Lick,
Yeah that’s the lick,
When you’re sucking that,
That’s the lick.

The way you move, the way you groove,
Baby I’ll never lose.

Yo pretty baby ain’t no need to be teasing,
One thing on my mind and you know that it’s pleasing,
I wanna lay you down and give you a squeezing,
Sit back, relax, just take it easy,
I don’t want to hurt you, I want to impress you,
I wanna take you home, I wanna undress you,
Lay you by my fire, kiss and caress you, I gotta confess you…

Hit me… You hit me… Hit me… You hit me…

When I see it in your eyes that you’re getting that notion,
You got so much love you could make a potion,
You can bounce up and down and you do those tricks, that’s what I call…

The Lick,
Yeah that’s the lick,
When you’re sucking that,
That’s the lick.

The Lick,
(The way you move) Yeah that’s the lick,
(The way you groove) When you’re sucking that,
(Baby I’ll never lose) That’s the lick.

08: Helpme
6:03

(Helpme), (Helpme).
Helpme, (Helpme) get close to you, (Helpme),
Helpme, (Helpme) to do what you want me to. (Helpme)…

Click, the lights go out, and now you’re mine,
I wanna make you shout, like it’s the end of time,
Nothing, nothing can stop this, no matter how they try,
So come on, come on, we can not be denied…

Helpme, (Helpme) get close to you, (Helpme),
Helpme, (Helpme) to do what you want me to. (Helpme)…

Bang, the stars will fall, for the whole world to see,
I wanna count them all as we fall in ecstasy,
Your body baby, is all I wanna do,
So come on, come on, I wanna get close to you,

Helpme, (Helpme) get close to you, (Helpme),
Helpme, (Helpme) to do what you want me to. (Helpme)…

Come here… (Why?),
Sit down on this chair… (OK),
Do you like that, when I kiss you?… (Yes),
Down there?… (Oh yes),
Love is like a tear, it means more when you can’t hold back… (I can’t hold it),
And this, that we have… It’s like a heart attack.

Boom, our hearts explode, at the slightest touch,
If penetration, is the question, the answer could be too much,
I wanna kiss you, but I don’t know where to start,
So come on, come on, and tell me what’s in your heart.

Helpme, (Helpme) get close to you, (Helpme),
Helpme, (Helpme) to do what you want me to. (Helpme).

Helpme, (Helpme) get close to you, (Helpme),
Helpme, (Helpme) to do what you want me to. (Helpme).

09: C.S.W
3:08

You’re so beautiful.

I’m living it up, let me take you down,
Cos too many things in this world leave us turning around,
Let’s take a chance, a little romance,
For just one time in our lives we could dance.

Don’t wanna say it “Coulda been, shoulda been, woulda been together”,
(So beautiful) I don’t wanna say “Might’ve flown, might’ve grown,
Might’ve gone on and on and on and on and on”.

Let me spread my wings, learn how to fly,
Let me carry you to paradise,
Show me your heart, tell me you’ll stay,
And I promise you I’ll never stray.

Cos I don’t wanna say it “Coulda been, shoulda been, woulda been together”,
(So beautiful) I don’t wanna say “Might’ve flown, might’ve grown,
Might’ve gone on and on and on and on and on”.

You’re one of those beautiful people, with beautiful faces,
Beautiful curves in beautiful places,
Beautiful homes, beautiful lives,
Beautiful cars on beautiful drives,
You’re beautiful, so beautiful,
Next to you, I’m so pitiful.

Cos I don’t wanna say it “Coulda been, shoulda been, woulda been together”,
(So beautiful) I don’t wanna say “Might’ve flown, might’ve grown,
Might’ve gone on and on and on and on and on”.

Cos I don’t wanna say it “Coulda been” (Coulda been),
“Shoulda been” (Shoulda been),
“Woulda been together” (Together baby), (So beautiful),
I don’t wanna say “Might’ve flown” (Don’t wanna say it),
“Might’ve grown” (Don’t wanna say it),
“Might’ve gone on and on and on and on and on”.

Coulda been, shoulda been, together baby.

10: She Rocks
3:09

Her beat has a different rhythm,
It’s her life and that’s how she’s living,
So she rocks and she rolls,
She’s cool and she knows.

She looks just like you’d want her,
She’s lived and it still haunts her,
So she rocks and she rolls,
She ebbs and she flows.

She loves with intensity,
She has a propensity,
For cool guitars and funky bass,
A nice ass and a nice face, yeah.

She don’t wanna rule the world,
She wants to be a cooler girl,
So she rocks and she rolls,
And I love her right down to my soul.

She loves with intensity,
She has a propensity,
For cool guitars and funky bass,
A nice ass and a cute face, yeah.

La la la l’la l’la la la l’la la la,
La la la l’la l’la la la l’la la la,

11: My Condition
4:14
(Written by Mickey Newbury.)

Woke up this morning with the sun down, shining in,
I found my mind in a brown paper bag but then,
I tripped on a cloud and fell 8 miles high,
Tore my mind upon a jagged sky.

I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in.

I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in,
I watched myself crawling out as I was crawling in,
Got up so tight, I couldn’t unwind,
I saw so much, I broke my mind.

I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in.

Somebody painted “April fools”, in big black letters on a “Dead end” sign,
I kept my foot on the gas as I left the road and flew out my mind,
8 miles out of Memphis and I got no spare,
8 miles straight up downtown somewhere.

I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in… Yeah.
