Nobody but You Baby

length: 4:06

I don't want nobody to tell me 'bout what to do
Nobody to tell me 'bout me and you
Nobody to tell me 'bout what to do
Nobody to tell me 'bout me and you
Oh baby, nobody but you, baby
Nobody, nobody but you, baby
Nobody

Baby, when I see you walking down the street
Baby, I can tell we're on a winning streak
Nobody can tell me 'bout what to do
'cause baby I know that your love is true
Oh baby, nobody but you, baby
Nobody, nobody but you, baby
Woo, nobody, nobody but you, baby
Nobody, nobody but you, woo baby
Nobody

Baby, when I see you walkin' down the street
Baby, I can tell we're on a winning streak
Nobody can tell me 'bout me and you
'cause baby I know that your love is true
Woo baby, nobody but you, baby
Nobody, woo baby, nobody but you, baby
Woo nobody, nobody but you, baby
Nobody, nobody but you, baby

I don't want to live in a world of darkness
I want to live in a world of light
I don't want to live in a world that's heartless
I want to live in a world of sight
Well you know, I want to make the world turn around

Living in a world of justice
Living in a world of shame
Living in a world of freedom
Living in a world of pain
Well you know, I want to make the world turn around

Turn the darkness into light
Turn the hunger into life
Turn the wrong into right
Put an end to the strife
Turn the blindness into sight
Save a human life
Make the world turn around

I want to live in a world of gladness
I want to know what your heart is made of
Don't want to live in a world of sadness
I want to live in a world of love
Well you know, I want to make the world turn around

Living in a world of justice
Living in a world of light
Living in a world of freedom
Living in a world of sight

I want to send a message
To every boy and girl
I want to send a message
About the world
We got to build it up
Stop tearing it down
We got to build it up
Make the world turn around

Living in the 20th Century

length: 3:09
Oh, 20th century
20th century

Working on the line just trying to make a dollar
Along came the boss and he tapped me on the shoulder
He said I got to make my little light shine
If I want to keep my job, I got to work it double time
Baby it's our destiny
You know we're living in the 20th century

Oh, 20th century
Oh, 20th century
Oh, baby it's our destiny
You know we're living in the 20th century

If you're standing on a corner, well, you don't stand a chance
You got to have a job if you want to make romance
I think about my baby nearly all of the time
But I got to keep on working 'cause they can't stop the line
Baby it's our destiny
You know we're living in the 20th century

Oh, 20th century
Oh, 20th century
Oh, baby it's our destiny
You know we're living in the 20th century

I Wanna Be Loved (But by Only You)

length: 2:25
I wanna be loved
But by only you
I wanna be loved
But by only you
Because I never had a love as true

Your kiss is so sweet
Honey your love is light
Your kiss is so sweet
Honey your love is light
Come on and love me
Honey love me tonight

I wanna be loved
But by only you
I wanna be loved
But by only you
Because I know
I know your love is true

I wanna be loved
But by only you
I wanna be loved
But by only you
Because I never had a love as true


My Babe

length: 2:54
My babe, she don't stand no cheatin', my babe
Oh no, she don't stand no cheatin', not my babe
Oh yes, she don't stand no cheatin'
She don't stand none of that midnight creepin'
My babe, true little baby
That's my babe, true little baby

My babe, I know she loves me, my babe
Oh yes, I know she loves me, my babe
Oh yes, I know she loves me
She don't do nothin' but kiss and hug me
My babe, true little baby
That's my babe, true little baby

My babe, she don't stand no foolin', my babe
Oh no, she don't stand no foolin', my babe
Oh no, she don't stand no foolin'
When she's hot there ain't no coolin'
My babe, true little baby
That's my babe, true little baby

She's my baby, true little baby
She's my babe, true little baby
She's my baby, true little baby
She's my babe, true little baby

Big Boss Man

length: 2:38
writer: Luther Dixon, Al Smith
Big boss man
Can't you hear me when I call
Big boss man
Can't you hear me when I call
Well, you ain't so big
You just tall that's all

You got me workin' boss man
Workin' 'round the clock
I want a little drink of water
But you just won't let me stop

Big boss man
Can't you hear me when I call
Well, you ain't so big
You just tall that's all

Now I'm gonna get me a boss man
One that's gonna treat me right
Work hard in the day time
Rest easy at night

Big boss man
Can't you hear me when I call
Well, you ain't so big
You just tall that's all

Well, you ain't so big
You just tall that's all

Caress Me Baby

length: 3:19
Caress me baby
Like the wind caress the trees
Caress me baby
Like the wind caress the trees
I want you to love, love me baby
Like a soft, soft summer breeze

Down by the river
On a real moonlighted night
Down by the river
On a real moonlighted night
I want to love, love you baby
Everything will be all right

Ain’t That Lovin’ You Baby

length: 2:52
[Chorus:]
Ain't that lovin' you, baby?
Ain't that lovin' you, baby?
Ain't that lovin' you, baby?
But you don't even know my name

Listen to me, baby
What I say is true
They could drop me in the ocean
I'd swim to the bank
And get back home to you

[Chorus]

They may kill me, darlin'
Honey, just like they do
Well, my body might die
But my spirit's gonna rise
And crawl back home to you

[Chorus]

Ain't that lovin' you, baby?
Ain't that lovin' you, baby?
Ain't that lovin' you, baby?
But you don't even know my name
Don't even know my name

Ain't that lovin' you, baby?
Ain't that lovin' you, baby?
Ain't that lovin' you, baby?
But you don't even know my name
Said, you don't even know my name
Said, you don't even know my name
No, you don't even know my name
No, you don't even know my name
No, you don't even know my name

Well, I went to see my woman
Way back down on the farm
Went to see my woman
Way back on the farm
Sundown's gonna catch me
In my sweet baby's arms

She likes to rock
She likes to roll
She likes to
Push, push, push to the stroll
Down, down, down, down
Down behind the barn
Sundown's gonna catch me
In my sweet baby's arms

You know, we went up on the mountain
Looked down on the sea
Went up on the mountain
And we looked down on the sea
You know, sundown's gonna catch me
Lovin' my sweet baby

She likes to rock
She likes to roll
She likes to
Push, push, push to the stroll
Down, down, down, down
Way behind the barn
Sundown's gonna catch me
In my sweet baby's arms

Woo
Woo, woo, woo
Yeah
Way behind the barn
Hoo
Hoo, hoo, hoo
Way behind the barn
Sundown's gonna catch me
In my sweet baby's arms
