Alien Blues

soundclip


by Bob Margolin
recording of 1997
from
Up & In (Alligator 4851), copyright notice

Bob to mother ship I'm reporting to you
Beam me back up for a rendezvous
It's a shame the way the earth folks fuss and fight
Playin' the blues about all that you write
Breaks both my hearts, hurts my ears too
I may be green but I'm sure not blue

I've been ridin' through the stars since time began
I never met a creature who acted like man
The earth is so full of natural beauty
But all they want to do is kick each other's booty
White, black, brown, red, and yellow too
I may be green but they make me blue

Hey it can hurt breedin' mistrust
I wish they knew how they looked to us
Solve their problem with a big death ray
The blues tell me they might find they way
Give 'em a chance and see how they do
I may be green but I love those blues

Blues Lover

soundclip


by Bob Margolin / Mark Kazanoff
recording of 1995

from My Blues & My Guitar (Alligator 4835) & Alligator Records 25th Anniversary Collection (Alligator 110), copyright notice

Somewhere in this big city a fine young lady's getting dressed
She's going down to the blues club to hear the sounds that she loves best
Modern music just don't move her, rap and country 'n' all the rest

She's going out all alone to check out a new blues band
Her girlfriends won't go with her, no they just don't understand
That's too bad, but she don't need them and she ain't lookin' for a man

To her nothing sounds so good as a ringing slide guitar
She loves it slow and deep, and she feels it in her heart
She says, "Hush, I'm trying to listen", when men hit on her at the bar

A lady so fine and soulful can still be blue that's for sure
She might make lots of money, but a troubled heart can make her poor
And if blues is her sadness, then blues music is her cure

'Bout Out


by Bob Margolin
recording of 1997
from
Up & In (Alligator 4851), copyright notice

The date on my last penny
Is the last year I got any
And I sure didn't get that many
I'm just about out

Nine cents on your dime
Nine heart aches since my last good time
Nine minutes before I turn to crime
I'm just about out

I know you might laugh when you hear this
And I don't want sympathy
But my heart and my pockets are empty
And that out about says it for me

I spent one cent less than I had
I'm so lonely I might go mad
How the hell did it get this bad
I'm just about out

I know you might laugh when you hear this
And I don't want sympathy
But my heart and my pockets are empty
And that out about says it for me

I ain't counting my penny wrong
I ain't had no love in so long
My life is one sad blues song
I'm just about out

Going Back Out On The Road


by Snooky Pryor
recording of 1997
from
Up & In (Alligator 4851), copyright notice

I'm gonna pack my suitcase, boy and head out on the road
I'm gonna pack me suitcase, yeah and head out on the road
Well that woman I've been loving, she don't love me no more

Well I hate to see that evening sun go down
Well I hate to see that evening sun go down
Well I feel so lonesome when my baby can't be found

I'm gonna call long distance telephone from coast to coast
I'm gonna call long distance telephone from coast to coast
If I don't find my baby, ain't gonna call no more

Imagination

soundclip


by Goffin / Goldberg
recording of 1997
from
Up & In (Alligator 4851), copyright notice

I really got to use my imagination, to keep on keepin' on
I got to make the best of a bad situation, ever since that day I found you were gone

Darkness all around me, blockin' out the sun
My good friends call me but I don't want to talk to anyone
Emptiness has found me and it just won't let me go
I go on livin' but why I just don't know

I really got to use my imagination, to think of a reason
To keep on holdin' on, I got to make the best of
A bad situation, ever since that day, I found you were gone

Drowning out reality won't do me no good
Ain't no misunderstandin', it's too well understood
Such a sad, sad season, when a good love dies
Ain't a day goes by, when I don't realize

I really got to use my imagination, to think of a reason
To keep on holdin' on, I got to make the best of
A bad situation, ever since that day, I found you were gone

Just Because


by Bob Margolin
recording of 1997
from
Up & In (Alligator 4851), copyright notice

Just because you don't say thanks, don't mean someone didn't give
Just because you got some money, don't mean you know how to live
Just because you look good today, don't mean you will tomorrow
Just because your happy now, don't mean you won't know sorrow
Just because you're clothes are clean, don't mean your clean without 'em
Just because you judge someone, don't mean you know about 'em

Just because you moved your mouth, don't mean you gave an answer
Just because you move your feet, don't mean that you're a dancer
Just because you're good, don't mean you'll always win
Just because you don't get caught, don't mean you didn't sin
Just because you meant to say it, don't mean that's what you said
Just because you look real sexy, don't mean you're good in bed

Just because you don't do it, don't mean that others shouldn't
Just because you can't control yourself, don't mean that I couldn't
Just because you talk the loudest, don't mean what you say is right
Just because you're a bully, don't mean you'll win the fight
Just because you say "No problem", don't mean the problem ain't you
Just because you don't go out, don't mean there's nothing to do

Just because you put folks down, don't mean that you're so cool
Just because you've been around, don't mean you ain't the fool
Just because you're talkin' at me, don't mean you're talkin' to me
Just because you're smilin' at me, don't mean that you won't screw me
Just because you don't say sorry, don't mean that you weren't wrong
Just because you make words rhyme, don't mean you wrote a song

Later For You


by Bob Margolin
recording of 1997
from
Up & In (Alligator 4851), copyright notice

Check it out baby, these words are way overdue
Check it out baby, these words are way overdue
Well it's my time now, got to be later for you

Well you sure fooled me baby, I thought your love was true
You sure fooled me baby, I thought your love was true
Well it's my time now, got to be later for you
(Help me Pinetop1)

Well I gave you a home and I took you to be my wife
But you treated me so rotten, you almost wrecked my life
Good-bye baby, now I don't care what you do
Well it's my time now baby, got to be later for you
(Oh, get outta here)

Not What You Said Last Night


by Bob Margolin
recording of 1997
from
Up & In (Alligator 4851), copyright notice

You tell me you don't love me and you say you never will
You're going to find another man, to give you that thrill
But that's not what you said last night, that's not what you said last night
That's not what you said last night, when we turned off the bedroom light

You tell me I don't please you and you're tired of trying
You tell me to hit the road, now I'm standin' here cryin'
Not what you said last night, that's not what you said last night
That's not what you said last night, I thought everything was alright

Well double-dealing mama, you won't play me straight
Say one thing early, something else late
Not what you said last night, that's not what you said last night
That's not what you said last night and I didn't come here to fight

That's not what you said, not what you said, not what you said last night
That's not what you said, not what you said, not what you said last night
That's not what you said, not what you said, not what you said last night

Up & In

soundclip


by Bob Margolin
recording of 1997
from
Up & In (Alligator 4851), copyright notice

The sun is rising and I don't care who I've been
I never did much but I'm ready to begin
I may be down and out but I'm gettin' up and in

I've always been a loser, now it's my turn to win
I was on the bottom, now this time it's happenin'
I may be down and out but I'm gettin' up and in

Up and in
Up and in
Up and in
Up and in
I may be down and out but I'm gettin' up and in

Gonna get some good lovin' and I don't think that's a sin
You'll know when I do, you'll dig my big wide grin
I may be down and out but I'm gettin up and in

Up and in
Up and in
Up and in
Up and in
I may be down and out but I'm gettin' up and in

Up and in
Up and in
Up and in
Up and in
I may be down and out but I'm gettin' up and in
