Walk of Life

Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be-Bop-A-Lula, Baby What I Say
Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta Woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make it pay
He got the action, he got the motion
Yeah the boy can play
Deplication devotion
Turning all the night into the day

He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk, he do the walk of life

Here comes Johnny and he'll tell you the story
Hand me down my walkin' shoes
Here comes Johnny with the power and the glory
Backbeat the talkin' blues
He got the action, he got the motion
Yeah the boy can play
Delication devotion
Turning all the night time into the day

He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk, he do the walk of life

Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be-Bop-A-Lula, Baby What I Say
Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta Woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make it pay
He got the action, he got the motion
Yeah the boy can play
Deplication devotion
Turning all the night into the day

And after all the violence and double talk
There's just a song in all the trouble and the strife
You do the walk, you do the walk of life

 

Water of Love

High and dry in the long hot day
Lost and lonely in every way
Got the flats all around me sky up above
I need a little water of love

I've been too long lonely and my heart feels pain
Crying out for some soothing rain
I believe I have taken enough
I need a little water of love

Water of love deep in the ground
No water here to be found
Some day baby when the river runs free
It'll carry that water of love to me

There's a bird up in a tree sitting up high
Waiting for me to die
If I don't get some water soon
I'll be dead and gone in the afternoon

Once I had a woman I could call my own
Once I had a woman now my woman is gone
Once there was a river now there's a stone
You know it's evil when you're living alone

 

What's the Matter Baby?

There's a shadow hanging over the valley
A total eclipse of the moon
Closing up the gates of the city
The wind it plays a wild tune
Don't you put a lock on your window
Don't you put the bar on your door
Don't you cry for the rain in the sky
You've seen the storm before

Yea now what's the matter with you baby
Baby what's the matter now
What's the matter your running in the shadows
Everytime you hear the wild man yell
Come on tell me what's the matter with you baby
Baby what's the matter now
What's the matter your running in the shadows
Everytime you hear the wild man yell

Now lightnings going to strike at midnight
Thunder going to shake the ground
Don't you flinch don't give a inch
Just a let the flood come down

Come on tell me what's the matter with you baby
Baby what's the matter now
What's the matter your running in the shadows
Everytime you hear the wild man yell
Come on tell me what's the matter with you baby
Baby what's the matter now
What's the matter your running in the shadows
Everytime you here the wildman yell

 

When It Comes To You

If we can't get along we oughtta be apart
And I'm wondering where'd you get that cold, cold heart
Set me free - sign my release
I'm tired of being the villain of the piece

You been givin' me a bad time
Tell me what'd I do
How come I always get a hard time
Honey when it comes to you
Sayin' things that you didn't have to
How come I always get a hard time
Honey when it comes to you

You only get one life - this I know
I wanna get my licks in now before I go
The fire of love is dead and cold
I gotta satisfy the hunger in my soul

And you been givin' me a bad time
Tell me what'd I do

 

Where Do You Think You're Going?

Where do you think you're going?
Don't you know it's dark outside?
Where do you think you're going?
Don't you care about my pride?
Where do you think you're going?
I think that you don't know
You got no way of knowing
There's really no place you can go

I understand your changes
Long before you reach the door
I know where you think you're going
I know what you came here for
And now I'm sick of joking
You know I like you to be free
Where do you think you're going?
I think you better go with me girl

You say there is no reason
But you still find cause to doubt me
If you ain't with me girl
You're gonna be without me

Where do you think you're going?
Don't you know it's dark outside?
Where do you think you're going?
Don't you care about my pride?
And now I'm sick of joking
You know I like you to be free
So where do you think you're going?
I think you better go with me girl

 

Why Worry?

Baby I see this world has made you sad
Some people can be bad
The things they do, the thing they say
But baby I'll wipe away those bitter tears
I'll chase away those restless jears
That turn your blue skies into grey

Why worry, there should be laughter after pain
There should be sunshine after rain
There things has always been the some
So why worry now

Baby when I'm down I turn to you
And you make sense of what I do
I know it isn't hard to say
Bat baby just when this world seems mean
Our love comes shining red and gold and cold

 

Wild West End

Stepping out to angellucci's for my coffee beans
Checking out the movies and the magazines
Waitress she watches me crossing from the barocco bar
I'm getting a pickup for my steel guitar
I saw you walking out shaftesbury avenue
Excuse me for talking i wanna marry you
This is the seventh heaven street to me
Don't be so proud
You're just another angel in the crowd
And i'm walking in he wild west end
Walking with your wild best friend

And my conductress on the number nineteen
She was a honey
Pink toenails and hands all dirty with money
Greasy hair easy smile
Made me feel nineteen for a while
Amd wi went down to chinatown
In the backroom it's a man's world
All the money go down
Duck inside the doorway gotta duck to eat
Right now feels alright now
You and me we can't beat

And a gogo dancing girl yes i saw her
The deejay he say here's mandy for ya
I feel alright to see her
But she's paid to do that stuff
She's dancing high i move on by
The close ups can get rough
When you're walking in the wild west end

 

Wonderful Tonight

It's late in the evening
She wonders what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair.
And then she asked me
Do I look alright?
I said yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go to a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful woman walking around with me
And then she asked me
Do you feel alright?
I said yes, I feel wonderful tonight
I feel wonderful because I see
The love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize
How much I love you.

It's time to go home now
And I got a big headache
So I give her the car keys
She helps me to bed
And then I told her
As I turned out the lights
I say my darling
You were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling,
You were wonderful tonight

 

You And Your Friend

Will you and your friend come around
Are you and your friend gonna get on down
Will you and your friend come around
Or are you and your friend gonna let me down

If you talk to one another
I'm a hungry man
Let me know one way or the other
So I can make my plans

Will you and your friend come around
Or are you and your friend gonna get on down
Will you and your friend come around
Or are you and your friend gonna get on down

I relive the situation
Still see it in my mind
You got my imagination
Working overtime

 

Your Latest Trick

All the late night bargains have been struck
Between the satin beaus and their belles
And prehistoric garbage trucks
Have the city to themselves
Echoes roars dinosaurs
They're all doing the monster mash
And most of the taxis and the whores
Are only taking calls for cash

I don't know how it happened
It all took place so quick
But all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick

My door was standing open
Security was laid back and lax
But it was only my heart got broken
You must have had a pass key made out of wax
You played robbery with insolence
And I played the blues in twelve bars down Lover's Lane
And you never did have the intelligence to sue
The twelve keys handing off my chain

I don't know how it happened
It all took place so quick
But all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick

Now it's past last call for alcohol
Past recall has been here and gone
The landlord finally paid us all
The satin jazzmen have put away their horms
And we're standing outside of this wonderland
Looking so bereaved and so bereft
Like a Bowery bum when he finally understands
The bottle's empty and there's nothing left

I don't know how it happened
It all took place so quick
But all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick
