Run For Cover – Lee Perry

August 17, 2008

Run for cover, now.
I’m taking over.
So, please step aside.
Because, I ain’t gonna sympathize.
Boy I’m gonna lay it on.
From dusk till dawn.
With a right to the head and a left to the cheek.
Boy, I’m gonna knock you down.
With a right to the head and a left to the cheek.
I’m gonna keep the pressure on.

Wear You To The Ball – The Paragons

August 14, 2008

I’m gonna wear you to the ball tonight
Put on your best dress tonight
I’m gonna fun you ’till it’s broad daylight
Be on your best shape tonight

Though those other guys may put you down
I’m gonna let you wear my crown
Though those other guys may put you down
You’ll wear my crown

I’m gonna make you the talk of town
No one will push you around
I’m gonna make you the talk of town
No use wearing a frown

I’m gonna wear you to the ball tonight
Put on your best dress tonight
I’m gonna fun you ’till it’s broad daylight
Be on your best shape tonight

The Tide is High – The Paragons

August 14, 2008

The tide is high but I’m holding on
I’m gonna be your number one
I’m not the kinda man who gives up just like that, oh no

It’s not the things you do, that really hurts me bad
But it’s the way you do the things, you do to me
I’m not the kinda man who gives up just like that oh no
The tide is high but I’m holding on
I’m gonna be your number one
Number one, number one

Every man wants you to be his girl
But I’ll wait my dear ’till it’s my turn
I’m not the kinda man who gives up just like that, no

The tide is high but I’m holding on
I’m gonna be your number one
The tide is high but I’m holding on
I’m gonna be your number one

It’s My Delight – The Melodians

August 12, 2008

I love you like I want you
And I kiss you like I need you
Every night.
I’ll draw you close to me.
I’ll tell you words of comfort.
It’s my delight.
Darling, I’ve grown to love you
More every day.
And I’ve got a song to sing
Each lonely night. Oh yeah! Oh yeah!
Stronger than the north winds,
Higher than the mountains,
That’s my love for you.
And I will never hurt you.
Nor will I forsake you.
Darling, be true.
It’s only a matter of time, oh yeah!
Then all of my dreams will come true
In every way. Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

Stronger than the north winds,
Higher than the mountains,
That’s my love for you.
And I will never hurt you.
Nor will I forsake you.
Darling be true.
It’s only a matter of time, oh yeah!
Then all of my dreams will come true
In every way. Oh yeah! Oh yeah!
