Lyrics

Tell Mama
05:47
You thought you had found yourself a good girl,
One who would love you and give you the world.
Then you find, babe, that you've been misused,
Come to me, honey, I'll do what you choose.

I want you to
Well, tell mama
Tell all about it.
Well, tell mama
What you need
Tell your mama, babe,
What you want.
Tell your mama, babe.

What you need
What you want.
What you need
What you want
Whoa! an' I'll make everything alright.

That girl you didn't have no sense, babe,
Wasn't worth all the time that you spent.
That same man throwed you outdoors,
I just heard that he quartered your clothes, hey!

Well, tell mama
All about it.
Tell mama
What you need.
Tell your mama, babe,
What you want
Tell your mama, babe.

What you need
What you want
What you need
What you want,
Whoaaa! an' I'll make everything alright, daddy, I swear!

Hey!

That girl you had didn't have no sense, dear,
Wasn't worth all the time that you spent.
And that same man that throwed you outdoors,
I just heard that he stole all your clothes, hey.

Well, tell mama
All about it
Tell mama
What you need
Tell your mama, babe
What you want
Tell your mama, babe

What you need
What you want
What you need
What you want
Anything I can do
Anything I can do for you, baby.

Tell your mama, babe!

Hey!

Every time you get lonely, lonely, lonely,
Every time you get lonely sometime.
Every time you get lonely, lonely, lonely,
Every time you get lonely sometime.

Every time you got to cry, cry,
Every time you gotta cry.
Every time you got to cry, cry, cry,
Every time you gotta cry.

Well, I'll tell you, dear
If you're a woman
I can only assume
That you already know what you're looking for, baby.

If you ever, if you were lookin', if you were lonely
if you were lookin', or lonely,
I know what you're lookin' for,
And I figured it out at fourteen years old
And I been lookin' for it every since, too, man.

However, if you happen to be a very young man,
(Preferably a young man)
I'll tell you what you need, man,
When you wake up an' it doesn't feel right, man,
Your head don't feel right, nothin' feels right
I'll tell ya what you need -

You need a sweet lovin' mama, babe,
Sweet talkin' mama, baby.
You need a sweet lovin' mama, babe.

You need someone to listen to you,
Someone to talk to you,
Someone to hear you
Someone to want you
Someone to need you
Someone to use you
Someone to hold you

Want you, talk, listen, hold ya, want you, need you,
Hold you, need you, want you, need you, hold you,
Won't you need me mama, mama, mama, mama baby
Hey now, mama, mama, mama, mama, baby
Lord, mama, mama, mama, mama, mama, baby
Hey, mama, mama, mama, mama, babe.

Tell mama all about it
Tell mama all about it
What you need, what you want
What you need, what you want
Anything I can do
Anything, baby, I can do for you
Tell your mama, babe

Whoa mama babe!

Yeah

An' I'll make everything alright, yeah!
Magic of Love
03:03
Alright,
You went away, had your chance to say
"I love you and I need you baby"
Yeah, but even if
Honey, I told you daddy now
You wouldn't believe me anyway, no, no, no.
Maybe you will now,
I've changed a lot somehow,
Let me do what I say.

Come back and believe my love,
Please! Now, come back and believe my love,
Come back, and believe the magic of love.

Oh, I want the light without the darkness
I want the sky without the sun, yeah!
When do the stars and the moon reach out ?
When they see me alone without my loved one, yeah!

Oh, now baby, don't you hear me,
Won't-t-t-t-t-t-t you hear me I gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta tell you,
Oh baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,
Honey, I just gotta tell you now,
Honey, I wanna tell you that I want you to dig it!

Now if you believe in magic,
Don't be afraid, afraid to use it, baby,
No, no, no, no, no, no, come on home
Dressed in the best of silk
Or wearing rich rags and waste
Darling, please!

Come on back to me
I know we can be
Part of a magic race.

Come back, and believe my love
Come back, please believe my love
Come back and believe the magic of love.

Hey! Now come back, babe, and believe my love
Come back, please believe my love
Come back and believe the magic of love.
Misery 'N
04:14
I've been misery 'n,
Ever since my daddy gone, yeah.
I've been, honey, I've been misery 'n, yes I have, now.
Ever since my, since my daddy gone, gone, gone.
But I believe that it won't,
Baby, it won't be too long,
If I just could hang on,
Yeah, until my, till my misery
Will all be gone.

Whoa, I said my rooms, you know,
They're so empty, empty, empty, empty, empty.
Filled up with sadness, sometimes, yeah.
My rooms are so empty, empty, empty, empty.
Child, filled up with sadness, honey, sometimes, sometimes.

Oh well it just, it just moves in,
Like the fog rolls in.
And I find I, well I can't see you, baby,
For my tears.

But I've tried.
Don't you know I've tried.
Cried, cried, cried, cried, cried.
Baby now, I've been missin' you.
Oh, I've been missin' you, babe!

Yeah, and it all seems to bother me
Much more that it seems it should be.
So, baby, now, now,
Baby, now, now,
Baby, tell me why,
Does it have to be
Oh, so wrong for me?

I never thought I could ever want anybody,
No, no, no, never did, I never did.
Why am I feelin' so strange???
Whoaaaaa, I never, never, never needed nobody, no, no,
But maybe you could help me -
Why am I feelin' so strange?

Yeah, an' I've got me a great,
An' I've got a great big bed
With two pillows for my head.
Hey, but lately I been sleepin', sleepin' alone.

But I've tried,
Don't you know I've tried.
Cried, cried,
You know how I've cried.
An', an' baby, I've been missin' you.

Don't you know I've tried.

Cried, cried,
You know how I've cried.
An', an' baby, I've been missin' you,
Yeah...
One Night Stand
03:08
When I'm on the road playin' in a town without a name,
And I'm feelin' low an' everybody looks the same.
Well, you catch my eye, and then you come on strong an' try to make your play.
Just because we loved tonight, please don't you think it's gonna stay that way.

Don't you know that you're nothin' more than a one night stand.
Tomorrow I'll be on my way, an' you can catch me if you can.
Honey, take me by the hand and play that game again, yeah.

Everywhere I go, the people wanna make some time with me.
That's okay, if the next day I can be free.
Well, it's feelin' good and you're the one I'm lovin' tonight,
Well, don't you go and spoil it, babe, by trying to get yourself all uptight.

Don't you know that you're nothing more than a one night stand.
I'll be on my way an' you can catch me if you can.
Honey, take me by the hand and play that game again, yeah!!!

Farewell Song
04:37
Whoa, the last time that I saw ya
Child, I know, no, you didn't say a word.
And I knew, darlin' as I looked into your eyes
That my feelings, oh, they'd never been heard.

Well, I'm talkin' to you about love,
Did you hear me, I said love,
Because it's got to be such a long, long, way
From denyin', from denyin'.

And I say, don't say no, no, no to me no more.
And I believed in you all the time,
Honey, until I found out, you know, that I was so wrong.
Won't you try and build a life with you,
Guess I should've known it, I guess I should've known it all along.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, let me hold you just once more
Babe, I ask you just once more
Because it's got to be such a long, long way from cryin'
And I been cryin' and I got tears in my eyes.

Yeah, but don't you know when you love somebody that's so precious
They can never, never, never be had very cheaply
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

You're gonna have to pay your dues
And sometimes, sometimes I guess you're bound to lose.
Hey, but that's the way
You're gonna learn, learn, learn to love deeply.

Now oh God, I wish I could explain that myself,
'Cause I know that it's my fault, too.
It's so easy to hurt you, darling,
It's so hard, it's hard not to do.

And I know that you showed me a new life
And you'll always, you'll always be my friend.
Yeah, but I don't think, honey, that I can keep from tryin'
And I'll be tryin' and I been cryin' for you, baby,
Yes, I have now.

Well, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
What would I do without you, child ?
I'm afraid that I can't say.
But I hope, honey, that when you will remember
Lord, it'll be, it'll be such a sunny day.

Now, now, now, now, good-bye,
I'll see you sometime
And don't be worried, everything's just fine.
Babe, I don't think
That I can keep from dyin'
And I've been dyin'.

I say now every day I die a little bit, babe
I say now every day I lose me someone in my heart
I've been lonely, lonely, look around baby
I said now I can't help myself
I can't help myself
I gotta find him, gotta, I gotta need him
'Cause I gotta find my man, find my baby
'Cause I gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta,
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, yeah, gotta
Gotta, gotta, gotta, oh my Lord I gotta
Help me now now now now
Help me, babe, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Whoaa ... Lord, Lord Lord Lord!!
Whoaa ... Lord, Lord Lord Lord!!
Whoaa ... Lord, Lord Lord Lord!!
