Bruce Hornsby and Bonnie Raitt – Rainbow’s Cadillac 1993

November 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Well he came to town with a strong pull
Would flash his moves for the worshipful
Shoulder moves from side to side
Go over your head and dot your eyes

Every night about a quarter to ten
From the middle of June to the summer’s end
People would gather from miles around
To see the mighty Rainbow knock ’em down

He’d pull up from around the back
Folks say, “There’s Rainbow’s Cadillac”
Fancy shirts and shorts of plaid
Coat of more colors than Joseph had

Every night about a quarter to ten
From the middle of June to the summer’s end
People would gather from miles around
To see the mighty Rainbow knock ’em down

Take a quarter from the collection plate
Every night he would dominate
Jump to the top and pick off a dime
Throw it down at the proper time

Every night about a quarter to ten
From the middle of June to the summer’s end
People would gather from miles around
To see the mighty Rainbow knock ’em down

Book Review: Squeeze Me

November 20, 2020 Leave a comment
 
Carl Hiaasen has been one of my favorite authors ever since I finished Tourist Season. I’ve read all of his books and they’ve been pretty much 4 or 5-star ratings. Until now…I know he’s got a big political target down there in West Palm and if he wants to do a political comedy, no problem. But Squeeze Me was just so…lame. Worst of all it was a waste of Skink. (2 of 5 Stars)

Let me, let me, let me
Baby don’t you get me
Let me, let me, let me
Baby don’t you get me

Allright

Can’t you see what I’m trying to do
Doing my best to try to get to you
Don’t you hear what I’m trying to sing
All the right words but still you run away

Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me (Yeah)
Baby don’t you get me
Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me (Yeah)
Baby don’t you get me
Come on, Come on, baby won’t you let me

Allright

Don’t it seem (Yeah) that when you love somebody (Houuuu)

Ain’t it right (Yeah) that somebody should loves you (Houuuu)
And I know (Yeah) my love is going somewhere (Houuuu)
But I’m sure (Yeah), it ain’t being got by you
That it’s true, won’t you try, won’t you try

Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me (Yeah)
Baby don’t you get me (Yeah)
Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me (Yeah)
Baby don’t you get me
Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me
Baby don’t you get me
Come on, come on, baby won’t you let me [x2]

Mamamamamamamama

Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me (Yeah)
Baby don’t you get me (Yeah)
Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me (Yeah)
Baby don’t you get me

Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Flea with Metallica – Train Kept A Rollin’ 2009 HQ

November 18, 2020 Leave a comment

Well on a train, I met a dame
She rather handsome
We kinda look the same
She was pretty
From New York City
I’m walkin’ down that old fair lane

I’m in heat, I’m in love
But I just couldn’t tell her so
I said, Train Kept A Rollin’ all night long
Train Kept A Rollin’ all night long
Train Kept A Rollin’ all night long
Train Kept A Rollin’ all night long
With a heave, and a ho
But I just couldn’t tell her so, no, no, no
Well, get along
Sweet little woman get along
On your way
Well, get along
Sweet little woman get along
On your way
I’m in heat, I’m in love
But I just couldn’t tell her so, no, no, no
Well on a train, I met a dame
She rather handsome
We kinda looked the same
She was pretty
From New York City
I’m walkin’ down that old fair lane
I’m in heat, I’m in love
But I just couldn’t tell her so
Well, get along
Sweet little woman get along
On your way
Well, get along
Sweet little woman get along
On your way
I’m in heat, I’m in love
But I just couldn’t tell her
Well, we made a stop in Albequerque
She musta thought
I was a real cool jerk
Got off the train, and put her hands up
Lookin’ so good, I couldn’t let her go
But I just couldn’t tell her so
I’m in heat, I’m in love
But I just couldn’t tell her
