Amnesia

soundclip


by Kim Wilson
recording of 1986

from Tuff Enuff (Epic ZK-40304), copyright notice

There's a girl in the town calling my name
She says I put her down and I'm the one to blame
Well I broke her heart and left her here to cry
And I know that girl is telling me a lie
She says, "I left and took back my ring,
I don't remember a god-darn thing"

I used to like to run around
My reputation was going down
Spent my money like it was out of style
I wouldn't even give my gal a smile
She says, "I left and took back my ring,
I really don't remember a thing"

Amnesia, amnesia, amnesia
Baby what I do

Amnesia, amnesia, amnesia
Baby what I do

I used to like to run around
With every little girl in this town
Well I spent my money like it was out of style
I wouldn't even give my gal a smile
She says she wants me to come home
I wish the girl would just leave me alone

Amnesia, amnesia, amnesia
Baby what I do

Full Time Lover

soundclip


by
recording of 1982 resp. 1987

from T Bird Rhythm (Chrysalis 41395) & Portfolio (Chrysalis 2), copyright notice

Well, I found me, yes, I found me a full-time lover
Well, I found me, yes, I found me a full-time lover
Well, she used to be my part-time woman, but she's my full-time lover now

Well, I work the graveyard shift, seven days a week
I'm so downhearted, I can't hardly even speak
I'll tell you the reason, the reason why I feel this way
I can't find a full-time love, yes, but I think I found one today

Well, I found me, Lord, I found me a full-time lover
Well, she used to be my part-time girl, man, but she's my full-time lover now

Well, people you don't know, you don't know the shape I'm in
I ask her where she's goin', she tells me where she's been
She came home last night, thought she'd be goin' back out the door
Then she told me "Baby, I ain't leavin' you no more"

Well, I found me, Lord, I found me a full-time lover
Well, she used to be my part-time girl, man. but she's my full-time lover now

Give, give me all your love
Give me all your kissin' and huggin'
Let me know that you're mine
Thrill me, thrill me all the time

Baby, never do me wrong
And we will always get along

Baby, baby just you and me
Piece of paper and a diamond ring
Baby that don't mean a thing
Little loving and mess
I'm the one who love you best

Hope, baby is squeezing me tight
From noon until night

Baby, baby just you and me

Baby, baby just you and me
Piece of paper and a diamond ring
Baby that don't mean a thing
Little loving and mess
I'm the one who love you best

I don't know what's wrong with me

Went to the doctor but he don't know

Tell me baby what I might gonna do

I believe I'm in love with you
I believe I'm in love with you
Tell me baby that you love me, too
I can't fight, baby I decided
I'm in love with you

I guess this time I realize
For you baby I got eyes
Come on baby and give me a chance
All I need is your romance
You know what I'm tryin' to fight
I'm telling you baby I'll be true

I believe I'm in love with you
I believe I'm in love with you
Tell me baby that you love me, too
I can't fight, baby I decided
I'm in love with you

Look At That, Look At That

recording of 1986 resp. 1992

from Tuff Enuff (Epic ZK-40304) & Hot Stuff: The Greatest Hits (Epic ZK-53007), copyright notice

Went to a party on Saturday night
Lookin real cool and dressed just right
Saved my money every week
Just could not spend it on those fine chicks
(Got) Gotta my car and (walked) in the door
You know (just) what I was lookin' for

Look at that blonde in the redskin tights
Don't go with her she's the one that bites
A fine, fine thing in a short short skirt
She ain't attached and she likes to flirt
A whole lotta woman is where it's at
Hey now boys will you just look at that

I don't know which way to turn
Every way I look my eyeballs burn
Short gals, tall gals skinny and fat
Look at that, look at that, look at that, look at that

See them twins in fishnet hose
I'll take either one or both of those
Sally over there still long and lean
She's got the key to my lovin' machine
All these girls are lookin' just right
At a hip-shakin' party on a Saturday night

Poor Boy


by Kim Wilson / Jimmie Vaughan
recording of 1982

from T Bird Rhythm (Chrysalis 41395), copyright notice

I'm a poor, poor boy
But that don't worry me
Everybody knows that the best things in life are free

Well I go out make a little money
Spend it fast as I can
I'm gonna go out and have a good time,
raise some sand while I'm still a young man

I got all the girls I need
And a hotel over my head
One thing I know, baby, I got clean sheets on my bed

Well I ain't got no money
But, baby, I don't care
I'm gonna ride around this town in my new car lookin' like a millionaire

Yes, I said I'm a poor, poor boy
But that don't worry me
Everybody knows that the best things in life are free

Tell me, tell me baby, what have I done wrong

Oh, tell me, tell me pretty baby, just before I go
If you want somebody else, I won't be back no more

True Love


by Kim Wilson
recording of 1986

from Tuff Enuff (Epic ZK-40304), copyright notice

True love is hard to find
True love is hard to find
Well just like good wine
Never gets served before it's time

Baby be true to me
Like I'm true to you
Well stick around or set me free
Baby that's what you got to do

It takes a lot of lovin' to fill my lovin' cup
Make it overflow till I can't get enough

I like it in the light
I like it in the dark
Well I like it on lover's lane
I like it in the pouring rain

Well bring it on over bring it on over to me
Well you and I together that's the way
I want it to be

Baby come take my hand
Tryin' to make you understand
Well I love you you see
Baby come on and go with me

Well bring it on over bring it on over to me
Well you and I together that's the way
I want it to be

Baby come take my hand
Tryin' to make you understand
Well I love you you see
Baby come on and go with me

from Tuff Enuff (Epic ZK-40304) & Wrap It Up (Sony 24202) & Hot Stuff: The Greatest Hits (Epic ZK-53007), copyright notice

I would walk two miles on my, hands and knees,
ain't no doubt about it, baby, it's you I aim to please
I'd wrestle with a lion and a, grizzly bear,
it's my life baby but, I don't care

Ain't that tuff enough?
Ain't that tuff enough?
Ain't that tuff enough?
Ain't that tuff enough?

For you baby I would, swim the sea,
nothin' I'd do for you that's too, tough for me
I'd put out a burnin' building with a, shovel and dirt,
and not even worry about, getting hurt

I would work 24 hours, 7 days a week,
just so I can come home and, kiss your cheek
I love you in the mornin' and I, love a-you at noon,
I love you in the night, take you, to the moon

Lain to buy my burnin' money, that I've earned,
and not even worry about, gettin' burned
I'd climb the Empire State, fight Mohammed Ali,
just to have you baby, close to me

soundclip


by Kim Wilson
recording of 1986 resp. 1992

from Tuff Enuff (Epic ZK-40304) & Hot Stuff: The Greatest Hits (Epic ZK-53007), copyright notice

Baby baby you put the hurt on me
'Cause I was blind and just couldn't see
But all these rumours that are floating around
Make this big city a very small town

I found out you've got somebody else
But I love you baby and I just can't help myself
I can't let you got it's plain as day to see
I'm gonna have to let you two time me

You can two time my lovin'
Second hands love is better than none
You can two time my lovin'
Just come home when you've had your fun

Repeat chorus

After all everybody has their fun
Nobody feels like there beholding to anyone
They don't feel there's no more lessons to be learned
But when you rub two ...1 together
Somebody's got to burn

But if you love somebody with all your might
You might have to fuss you might have to fight
Resign yourself there's nothing you can do
You're gonna have to let 'em two time you

chorus

But if you love somebody with all your might
You might have to fuss you might have to fight
Resign yourself there's nothing you can do
You're gonna have to let 'em two time you

Well I don't live like a king
And I don't drive a big car

Yeah, and until I get there baby
All I can do is hope and pray

Well you say you'll stick with me baby
Stick with me through thick and thin
I know someday baby
My bad luck has got to end

Just wait on me baby

Yes, and until I get there baby

My bad luck has got to end

Just wait on time baby
I'll be there one day
Yes, and until I get there baby
All I can do is hope and pray

Well I live the life I love
And I love the life I live
The life I live baby
Is all I have to give

So just wait on me baby
We'll be there one day
Yes, and until I get there baby
All I can do is hope and pray

Well, you just got to wait on time baby
Yes, just wait on time baby
Yeah-heah, be good to me baby
Because until I get there baby
All I can do is hope and pray

Why Get Up

soundclip


by B. Carter / R. Ellsworth
recording of 1986 resp. 1992

from Tuff Enuff (Epic ZK-40304) & Hot Stuff: The Greatest Hits (Epic ZK-53007), copyright notice

Why get up, why get up
How can I get up, why should I get up
This whole world's gone crazy
Think I've seen enough
I'm gonna sleep forever why get up

Phone keeps ringing right off the hook
Some bill collector, I know what cooks
Think I'll stay in bed, dream all day
World outside bugs me anyway
When I get things going, the going gets rough
So I ask myself why get up

Chorus

Went to the doctor, he said lose some weight
If you don't do it quick, we'll have to operate
I talked to my lawyer, he said case is closed
That woman got it all even the garden hose
Staring at the ceiling thinking just my luck
Better roll back over why get up

Chorus

Well I can't quit drinking, I'm nervous all the time
When I wake up, it's like a ton lead on my mind
What was it, I said to that girl last night
She really got upset, I best stay out of sight
I remember a gun and calling somebody's bluff
I better duck under the cover why get up

Chorus
