length: 4:12
writer: Frank Johnson

You say you love me, and you wanna come back home
That you’re so sorry for doing me wrong
Would be in sorry, baby, can not change the way I feel
'Cause when I think about forgiving you I remind it in my own tears

No, I’m not strong enough, aha, to love you again, no, no
I ain’t strong enough, aha, baby, to love you again, no, I ain’t

The day you left me I asked myself why
And you don’t know, you don’t know how much I cried
And now you wanna come back, knowing I still weep for you
Well, if you got any kind of heart, please, please, don’t ask me some, dear, oh

No, I’m not strong enough, no, baby, to love you again, no, no, I ain’t
I ain’t gonna let myself, I just ain’t gonna do it, love you one more time, no, no
I ain’t strong enough, I can not do it, baby, love you again, no, no, ohohohoho
I’m not strong enough to love you, to love you again, no, I ain’t, no, I ain’t

Later for you, baby, much, much later for you, baby
I ain’t gonna do it no more, no, I ain’t, heyeyeyeyeyey
I’m not strong enough to love you, to love you one more time, no, no, ohohohohohoho
I’m not strong enough, I ain’t gonna do it, baby, I ain’t gonna love you no more, no, I ain’t

Oh, yeah, I ain’t strong enough, I ain’t gonna do it, I ain’t gonna do it, I ain’t gonna do it, I, I, I, I
I ain’t strong enough, to love you one more time, no, I ain’t, no, I ain’t, baby
Oooh, not strong enough, to love you, to love you one more time, I ain’t gonna do it
Oh, oh, oh, Lord, I ain’t gonna do it, baby, I ain’t gonna love you one game, get you mercy, heyeyeyey

Walk Softly

length: 4:48
writer: Van McCoy
Walk softly when you walk by me
Cause my heart is still, don’t shake it up
Now that I’ve cried my love to sleep
Don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up
Now that I’ve cried my love to sleep
Don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up (don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up)

If I seem distant or reserved when we meet
Don’t take the time to ask me why
Cause it’s bad enough that I’ve lost you baby
Don’t make it rough, just say hello and then tell me goodbye

Walk softly when you move by me
Cause my heart is still, please don’t shake it up
Now that I’ve cried my love to sleep
Don’t wake it up baby, don’t wake it up
Ooh, now that I’ve cried my love to sleep
Be calm baby, don’t wake it up (don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up)

I fall apart each time that we meet
Remembering things that I should forget
My love’s a spark but it could burst into flames
Cause I’m not over you again, no

And walk softly when you move by me baby
Cause my heart is still, don’t you shake it up
Now that I’ve cried my love to sleep
Don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up
Oh, now that I’ve cried my love to sleep
Don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up
Ooh, now that I’ve cried my love to sleep
Don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up baby, don’t wake it up
Now that I’ve cried my love to sleep
Don’t wake it up, let it late baby, don’t wake it up
Be charm baby, now that I’ve cried my love to sleep
Don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up, eh, don’t wake it up
Please baby, now that I’ve cried my love to sleep, let it late
Don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up, don’t wake it up
Now that I’ve cried my love to sleep

Without You

length: 5:13
saxophone: Tom Scott
writer: Randall Stewart, Sir Mack Rice
Baby, I need your good lovin'
Got to have your love right now, baby
So come and fill my empty arms
And make my life worthwhile

Because I'm not livin', baby, I only exist
I'll never laugh, I'll never smile no more
Don't care if I stay like this, because

Without the one you love, life is not worthwhile
Without your love, my dear, I'm like a fatherless child
So come and fill my empty arms
And make my life worthwhile

When I feel the hurt comin' on
I stop and cry like I'm cryin'
(Right now)
People ask why would a grown man cry
I drop my head and I sigh and reply

Without the one you love, life is not worthwhile
Without your love, my dear, I'm like a fatherless child
So come and fill my empty arms
And make my life worthwhile

(Baby, I need your good lovin')
Sometimes I feel like a wanderer
(Got to have your love right now)
Searching for peace within

(Baby, I need your good lovin')
I need you my darling
(Got to have your love right now)
Like a lost soul needs a friend

So come and fill my empty arms
And fill my empty life

(Baby, I need your good lovin')
Nobody knows the emptiness I feel
(Got to have your love right now)
And I feel it

(Baby, I need your good lovin')
Nobody knows the loneliness I feel
(Got to have your love right now)
And I feel it because

Without the one you love, life is not worthwhile
Without your love, my dear, I'm like a fatherless child
So come and fill my empty arms
And make my life worthwhile

Sha, la, la, la, la, la

Girls, beware of the bandit
From Westchester County
I can’t offer you no reward
Cause all he left me was a broken heart
He kidnapped me excitingly
And then he robbed me off my dignity
And when enough of his time had spent
He left me (sha, la, la, la, la)
Moaning, yeah (sha, la, la, la, la)
He left me (sha, la, la, la, la)
Moan, moaning, babe, yes it is, eh (sha, la, la, la, la)

Be careful, my sisters, yeah
He’s armed with an innocent smile
With a dangerous love record
That can stretched for miles and miles
Hey girls, take a hint
He don’t leave no fingerprints
And if he catch his hands on you, he’s gonna be
Moaning (sha, la, la, la, la)
Yes he will, and he’ll leave you (sha, la, la, la, la)
Moan, moaning (sha, la, la, la, la)
Oh, yeah, yeah (sha, la, la, la, la)

Any female information
Concerned in this bandit person
He may be sitting right next to you
And what’s just the County is right there too
Hey girls, I got a confession to make
If they put that bandit in jail
I’ll be the first one to go on his mail, he left me
Moaning, oh yeah (sha, la, la, la, la)
I’m the wanted woman, and see me (sha, la, la, la, la)
He left me moaning, oh, yeah (sha, la, la, la, la)
Sha, la, baby, yeah, and it’s all about this (sha, la, la, la, la)

Sha, la, la, la, la, auh
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah
Sha, la, la, la, la, ooh, baby
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

Sha, la, la, la, la, look so good to me baby
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah
Sha, la, la, la, la, auh, baby
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

Sha, la, la, la, la, he’s branded for good
Sha, la, la, la, la, he tell the truth to you all
Sha, la, la, la, la, hey, gone for me
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

Sha, la, la, la, la, ooh, Good God Almighty
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

As Long as You Are There

length: 3:44
composer: Carolyn Franklin
lyricist: Carolyn Franklin

There’ve been a few loves in my live
But none who have loved me as you
You’re within my heart so deep
You’re with me whether I’m awake or I’m sleep
And with your hand in mine there is no hight I dare not climb, no

As long, as long as you hold my hand
There is no, no fate that I can’t withstand
And although tears may fall
I know you’ll drive them all
As long, as long as you are there (Are there)

Darling, darling in you I find
Happiness on peace of mind
A lover like I’ve never known
And I’m so glad, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you’re my very own

As long, as long, as long, as long, as long as you hold my hand
Darling there is no, there is no fate that I, I can’t withstand
And although I stumble and fall (Baby, baby)
Baby, I know, I know that you’ll hear my call
As long, just as long as you are there
