Tracklist

Delilah

length: 3:23
composer: Les Reed
lyricist: Barry Mason

I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window
I saw the flickering shadow of love on her blind
She was my woman
As she deceived me I watched and went out of my mind

My my my Delilah
Why why why Delilah
I could see, that girl was no good for me
But I was lost like a slave that no man could free

At break of day when that man drove away I was waiting
I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door
She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more

My my my Delilah
Why why why Delilah
So before they come to break down the door
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more

I Know

length: 3:59
writer: Carl Stutz, Edith Lindeman
I know what it means
to be lost in the dark.
I know what it means
to be tossed in the storm.

I have walked alone
with a heart of stone
and despair too heavy for tears,
but you caught my heart
and you taught my heart
to forget the doubts and fears.

And now that I know
the joy of your love,
my head is high, I can face the sky
and know that the heaven is here below,
I know.
For you I could die,
for you I will live,
I know.

I Wake Up Crying

length: 2:21
I wake up crying after tossin' and turnin'
And a yearnin' the whole night long
Pretty baby oh, my love since you went away
Haven't spent a happy day

I wake up crying after sobbin' and sighin'
And a wonderin' just what went wrong
Pretty baby well I know I was good to you
Why'd you go and make me blue

I need your arms to hold me tight now
I need your lips to kiss me goodnight
I'm so unhappy on my own
Don't don't leave me sad and lonely
(Oh, now, now, now, well, well, well, now baby)

I tell you I wake up crying after tossin' and turnin'
And a yearnin' the whole night long
Pretty baby, why don't you please come back to me
And save me from this misery I want you to save me

Ah save me baby
Mhh

Funny How Time Slips Away

length: 3:43
composer: Willie Nelson
lyricist: Willie Nelson
Well, hel-lo there-
My it's been a long, long time.
How'm I do-in?
Oh I guess that I'm doin' fine.
It's been so long now
And it seems that it was on-ly yes-ter-day.
Gee, ain't it funny
How time slips away.
How's your new love
I hope that he's doin' fine.
Heard you told him
That you'd love him till the end of time.
Now, that's the same thing that you told me,
Seems like just the other day
Gee, ain't it funny how time slips away.
Gotta go now,
Guess I'll see you around,
Don't know when tho',
Never know when I'll be back in town.
But remember what I tell you
That in time you're gonna pay
And it's surprising how time slips away.

Danny Boy

length: 3:57
lyricist: Frederick Edward Weatherly
arranger: Julie Knowles
publishing: Alfred Music
composer: [traditional]
Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side.
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling,
It's you, it's you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow,
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow,
It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow,
Oh, Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so!

But when ye come, and all the flowers are dying,
If I am dead, as dead I well may be,
You'll come and find the place where I am lying,
And kneel and say an Ave there for me.
And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me,
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be,
For you will bend and tell me that you love me,
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me!

It's a Man's Man's World

length: 2:42
writer: James Brown, Betty Jean Newsome

Don't Fight It

length: 2:54
There you sit all by yourself
Everybody's dancin';
they can't a-help themselves
The groove is much too strong;
they can't hold out long
So get up, don't fight it;
you've got to (feel it, feel it)

You'd better get on up & get the groove
You know what, baby? I like the way you move
You do the thing like you ought to be, all right
So don't fight it, oh baby (feel it, feel it)

The way you jerk, the way you do the twine
You're too much, baby;
I'd like to make you mine
& after the dance I'm gonna take you home
So don't fight it, baby you've got to (feel it, feel it)
Don't fight it (feel it, feel it) you've got to (feel it, feel it)

I Was Made to Love Her

length: 2:22
writer: Henry Cosby, Lula Mae Hardaway, Sylvia Moy, Stevie Wonder
I was born in Lil' Rock,
Had a childhood sweetheart,
We were always hand in hand.

I was hightop shoes and shirt tails,
Suzy was in pig tails,
I know I loved her even then.

You know my papa disapproved it,
My mama boohooed it,
But I told them time and time again,
"Don't you know I was made to love her,
Built a world all around her"
Yah! Hey, hey, hey.

She's been my inspiration,
Showed appreciation
For the love I gave her through the years.

Like a sweet magnolia tree
My love blossmed tenderly,
My life grew sweeter through the years.

I know that my baby loves me,
My baby needs me,
That's why we made it through the years.

I was made to love her,
Worship and adore her,
Hey, hey, hey.

All through thick and thin
Our love just won't end,
'Cause I love my baby, love my baby. Ah!

My baby loves me,
My baby needs me,
And I know I ain't going nowhere.

I was knee high to a chicken
When that love bug bit me,
I had the fever with each passing year.

Oh, even if the mountain tumbles,
If this whole world crumbles,
By her side I'll still be standing there.

'Cause I was made to love her,
I was made to live for her, yeah!

Ah, I was made to love her,
Built my world all around her,
Hey, hey, hey.

Oo baby, I was made to please her,
You know Stevie ain't gonna leave her, no,
Hey, hey, hey.

Oo wee baby, my baby loves me,
My baby needs me,
Hey, hey, hey.

OO my baby loves me....

It makes me feel so sad.
Hey, hey,hey
Everyone is laughing at me,
