Side One

1. The Honey Bee Song 2.20

I take you to the movie every Friday after school
About the time the picture starts, you start playing it cool
You send me out for Candy, girl, then send me back for more
But when I reach for something sweet you close your candy store

If you want a taste of honey, you've gotta get next to the bee
Well, baby, now you better stop your buzzing around and give your love to me
If you want that special sweetness, it's easy as can be
So, just come along and taste my honey, girl, start your buzzing baby next to me

Every time I wink at you, you turn a little red
But girl, I think you love me too, although you turn your head
Every time I'm with you I get an awful craving
Girl I got a sweet tooth for that sugar you've been saving

If you want a taste of honey, you've gotta get next to the bee
Well, baby, now you better stop your buzzing around and give your love to me
If you want that special sweetness, it's easy as can be
So, just come along and taste my honey, girl, start your buzzing baby next to me

If you want a taste of honey, you've gotta get next to the bee
Well, baby, now you better stop your buzzing around and give your love to me
If you want that special sweetness, it's easy as can be
So, just come along and taste my honey, girl, start your buzzing baby next to me

If you want a taste of honey, you've gotta get next to the bee
Well, baby, now you better stop your buzzing around and give your love to me
If you want that special sweetness, it's easy as can be
So, just come along and taste my honey, girl, start your buzzing baby next to me

2. Carrie 2.48

Carrie, carry me through
Nobody knows me like Carrie, you do
Carrie, Carrie won't you
Be with me, darling, like you used to do

Let's not get in a fight now
So someday you just might girl
Want me the way I want you
By the way, did you know that I love you

Carrie, carry me through
Nobody knows me like Carrie, you do
Carrie, Carrie won't you
Be with me, darling, like you used to do

Don't mind my disposition
I can see your position
I'm gonna make the old new
By the way, did you know that I love you

Carrie, carry me through
Nobody knows me like Carrie, you do
Carrie, Carrie won't you Be with me, Darling, like you used to do

3. Double Lovin' 2.30

It took me a long time to find a good woman, one that would be true.
And that's why I'm gonna double what it takes, baby, to hold on to you.
I'm gonna make my love twice as good as it was before, I'm gonna love you so
good, baby, you'll be beggin' and cryin' for more.

Double, double lovin' is what I'm gonna give to you, oh, and you're gonna get
double pleasure every time I do.
Double, double lovin' will make you feel so good inside, and when I double up on
my lovin' you're gonna be satisfied.

I'm gonna double up on my huggin' and my kisses, too.
And I've got a double stroke of lovin' I've been dyin' to use on you.
So don't be afraid to give me your love, 'cause I won't hurt you.
You make the first step, baby, and the rest I can easily do.

Double, double lovin' is what I'm gonna give to you, oh, and you're gonna get
double pleasure every time I do.
Double, double lovin' will make you feel so good inside, and when I double up on
my lovin' you're gonna be satisfied.

I'm gonna double your lovin', double your fun, you get two for the price of one.
Double your lovin', double your fun, you get two for the price of one.
Double, double lovin' is what I'm gonna give to you, oh, and you're gonna get
double pleasure every time I do.
Double, double lovin' will make you feel so good inside, and when I double up on
my lovin' you're gonna be satisfied.
Double, double lovin'...

4. Chilly Winds 2.54

Chilly winds may blow; chilly winds they come and they go.
Chilly winds may blow, oh, oh, oh and I don't know.
Chilly winds may blow; chilly winds they come and they go.
Chilly winds may blow, oh, oh, oh. and I don't know.

Looking all around, feeling lost and found.
Only talkin' to the wind.
Moving up and down, going 'round and 'round, no lonely traces of a friend.
The wind in the trees is more than a breeze winding through a memory...

Chilly winds may blow; chilly winds they come and they go.
Chilly winds may blow, oh, oh, oh and I don't know.

Endless evolution, turned off revolution, everybody reads between the lines.
Kicks put on the shelf, so high on life itself, hopelessly we're playing with the mind.

5. Shuckin' and Jivin' 2.10

You've been shuckin', you've been shuckin' and jivin', huh.
Shuckin' and jivin' is all I get every time I come around
If you're gonna do it, you better get to it
Or else I'm gonna put you down, else I'm gonna put you down

I give you all of my money, anything else you want
But when I ask for a little lovin' you say you will but then you don't
Always having appointments when I call you on the phone
You better get your business straight or else I'm gonna leave you alone

Oh! Shuckin' and jivin' is all I get every time I come around
If you're gonna do it, you better get to it
Or else I'm gonna put you down, else I'm gonna put you down, yeah Oh! Oh baby.
You're just shuckin', you're just shuckin' and jivin'

All the boys talkin about you, you're the cutest thing in town
Ain't no sweat to me, child, if you want to look around
What you do is your business, but, girl, I'm telling you
You better slip a little something my way, cause this shuckin' and jivin' won't do

Oh! Shuckin' and jivin' is all I get every time I come around
If you're gonna do it, you better get to it
Or else I'm gonna put you down

You've been shuckin', shuckin' and jivin'
Oh baby, oh baby, shuckin' and jivin'
Shuckin' and jivin', oh Baby, oh no

Side Two

1. The Promised Land 2.45

Riding down to Memphis on a cold and dusty train
I got nothing in my pockets all I own is just my name
Feeling kinda hungry and my clothes look awful bad
But I gotta go see my baby and I'm gonna be mighty glad

To get back to the promised land
Yeah, got to make it any way I can
Just got to taste that milk and honey one more time
She's gonna take me by the hand
Make me feel like a new born man
When I get back to my baby in the promised land

I thumbed a ride to Frisco, hopped a train to Santa Fe
Cause every morning there's a memory keeps me moving on my way
Now this special place I'm going, someone's waiting there for me
And it's worth it all just knowing just how good it's a gonna be

To get back to the promised land

Yeah, got to make it any way I can
Just got to taste that milk and honey one more time
She's gonna take me by the hand
Make me feel like a new born man
When I get back to my baby in the promised land

Yeah! To get back to the promised land
Yeah, got to make it any way I can
Just got to taste that milk and honey one more time
She's gonna take me by the hand
Make me feel like a new born man
When I get back to my baby in the promised land

2. If You're Gonna Leave Me 3.27

I'm used to disappointments, mending up my pride
I can take most anything and keep it all inside
But when it comes to losing the love I have for you
My old heart ain't big enough to keep from leaking through

If you're gonna leave me
Just come up missing yeah
Please don't say goodbye
I can be strong but if it comes my love
I don't want you to see me cry

If it come time that you must go
Please don't let me know
Just leave me a note by the kitchen door
That you're not coming home no more

Daddy told me you get what's coming to you r I don't know what I did so wrong to cause my losing you
But if I hurt you, you decide you wanna go
Just do me a favor and go your way cause I really don't want to know

If you're gonna leave me
Just come up missing yeah
Please don't say goodbye
I can be strong but if it comes my love I don't want you to see me cry

If you're gonna leave me
Just come up missing yeah
Please don't say goodbye
I can be strong but if it comes my love
I don't want you to see me cry

If you're gonna leave me
Just come up missing yeah
Please don't say goodbye
I can be strong but if it comes my love

3. We Never Said Forever 2.48

I looked into your eyes and knew
That I'd really like to be with you
Although that was yesterday
Now you're feeling insecure
Say a woman needs to know for sure
You can make it day by day

We never said forever
But I didn't think you'd ever turn, turn away
We never said forever
But I want you to stay
Love can be a full time thing
Even when it's not tied by strings
Girl, don't throw our love away

We never said forever
But I didn't think you'd ever turn, turn away
We never said forever
But I want you to stay

We never said forever
Now you're acting like it's hard for you, you to see
We never said forever but I need you with me
We never said forever but I didn't think you'd ever turn, turn away
We never said forever but I want you to stay
We never said forever but I didn't think you'd ever turn, turn away

4. She Makes Me Warm 2.24

She gives herself completely
She's like the morning sun
She warms me, warms me, makes me warm

When she comes to see me
I can't help but run
She warms me, warms me, makes me warm

Look at the lady, isn't she pretty
Doesn't she make your heart sing
Isn't she thrilling, if she were willing


Look at the joy that she might bring
And oh, she makes me warm
Oh, she makes me warm

Thrills me just to see her
She's like a summer day
She warms me, warms me, makes me warm

I'll never get to keep her
But though I wish she'd stay
She warms me, warms me, makes me warm

She gives herself completely
She's like the morning sun
She warms me, warms me, makes me warm

When she comes to see me
I can't help but run
She warms me, warms me, makes me warm

Look at the lady, isn't she pretty
Doesn't she make your heart sing
Isn't she thrilling, if she were willing
Look at the joy that she might bring

Look at the lady, isn't she pretty
Doesn't she make your heart sing
Isn't she thrilling, if she were willing
Look at the joy that she might bring

5. Sho Would Be Nice 3.30

I get the feeling that you're not satisfied girl
Wishing you were free to do the town
I get the feeling the way you kiss goodnight girl
You wish I weren't here to tie you down

Sure would be nice if you would love me like you did
I realize you're just a kid
I really love you girl way down deep inside
I know what I must do, step aside

When I first knew you I meant something to you
I don't know why but something sure went wrong
I'll say goodbye now, and please don't try to cry now
It's not hard to see I don't belong

Sure would be nice if you would love me like you did
I realize you're just a kid
I really love you girl way down deep inside
I know what I must do, step aside

Girl kiss me one more time before you go
Heaven knows I'm gonna miss you so
And my love for you won't go away
Cause I'm hoping you'll be back someday, hey

Sure would be nice if you would love me like you did
I realize you're just a kid
I really love you girl way down deep inside
I know what I must do, step aside

Sure would be nice if you would love me like you did
I realize you're just a kid
I really love you girl way down deep inside
I know what I must do, step aside
