I've got dreams, dreams to remember
I've got dreams, dreams to remember

Honey, I saw you there last night
Another man's arms holding you tight
Nobody knows what I feel inside
All I know, I walked away and cried

I've got dreams, dreams to remember
Listen to me (I've got dreams) rough dreams (dreams to remember)

I know you said he was just a friend
But I saw him kiss you, again and again
These eyes of mine, they don't fool me
Why did he hold you, so tenderly

I've got dreams, dreams to remember
Listen honey (I've got dreams) rough dreams (dreams to remember)

I still want you to stay
I still love you anyway
I don't want you to ever leave
Girl, you just satisfy me, ooh-wee, ooh yeah

I know you said he was just a friend
But I saw you kiss him again and again
These eyes of mine, they don't fool me
Why did he hold you so tenderly

I've got dreams, dreams to remember
Listen to me mama (I've got dreams) bad dreams, rough dreams (dreams to remember)
Don't make me suffer (I've got dreams) rough dreams, bad dreams (dreams to remember)

. . .


You make a man just wanna change his mind
Everything you do
You sent me through, yes
And I love you for it

'Cause you made a big ol' man, girl, out of me

I can't explain, baby what you did for me now
But I love you for it

'Cause you made a big ol' man, girl, out of me

You made a big ol' man, girl, out of me, baby
I'm a sweet
You gave me everything
And I love you for it, darling

'Cause you made a great big man out of me

. . .


I couldn't love you your way
Yet and still
But now I miss you
Ain't nobody's fault but mine, ha, uh

What will I do tomorrow
Wallow
But crying ain't gonna help
Ain't nobody's fault but mine, gatta-

One day, I've gotta pay for my mistakes
It's gonna carry me straight to my grave
I wanna tell ya somethin', uh

Instead of you trying to spend my money

But I was just a doggone fool
Trying to be so doggon cool
Ain't nobody's fault but mine, ha, uh

I need a little bit of help now

. . .


Hey there, here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you got to come home with me

I forgot some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get to thrown it on you
You got to come back for more

Toys and things that come by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drug store lovin'
Hey little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, yessir'am

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man of great experience
I know you got another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand, don't be afraid
I wanna prove every word I say
I'm advertisin' love for free
So, you can place your ad with me

Once it come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but ten cent lovin'
Hey little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, yessir'am

Baby, here I am
The man on your scene
I can give you what you want
But you got to come home with me

I forgot some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get to thrown it on you
You got to come runnin' back for more

Once it come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drug store lovin'
Hey little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, yessir'am

Gonna sing this song y'all
Singin' it for my baby
She's the only one can bring me joy
That's why I sing these happy songs

They go dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Come on now happy song, happy song now

On a cold, rainy, windy night
She shut all the doors, she cut off the lights
She holds me and squeeze me tight
She tells me, "Big O, everything's all right"

And I go dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Play it again, dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Do it again, dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Come on now those happy songs, happy, happy songs

Come on
Bring my breakfast to the table
When I go to work she knows I'm able
Do my job, I come back in
You oughta see my baby's face, she just grins, grins, grins

I go dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Play it again, dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Sing them happy songs
Lovely, lovely songs
Sweet soul songs
Those good old happy songs
Give you such a feeling
A lovely, lovely, feeling
It makes you wanna shout
It knocks you, knocks you out
Happy, happy songs
Those good old lovely songs
Those good old nursery rhyme songs
Those good old lovely songs
Those sweet soul music songs

. . .


Wait!
Before you walk out that door
Hang your clothes in the closet
You're forgetting one thing

I'm the one who saved you
From a long lonely life
I'm the one who gave you
You're first taste to paradise

Look how you payin' me back
Look how you turnin' your back
Please don't do me like this, honey
All this good love, you're gonna miss

Think about it, honey
You really ought to think about it 'fore you leave me
Dig this

I'm the one who showed you
How to live when you wanted to die
I'm the one who taught you
How to laugh when you wanted to cry

But look what you're doing to me
Look how you're hurting me
Please don't do me like this
All of this good lovin' you're gonna miss

Think about it, baby, listen
You really, really ought to think about it 'fore you leave
You really ought to think about it
Deep down think about it 'fore you leave me

Do this for me honey
Don't make me no lonely man
Don't try to push me out of your plan
Don't try to kick out love aside
Just wait before you tell me goodbye

Mmm yeah

You really, really, really, really, really ought to think about it
How I give it
You really, really, really ought to think about it
How I live it

One million times
I better stay up all night

. . .


How dare should I've asked you, "What's your name?"
Should you ask me the same
But dig, let's don't be wasting our time
Let's don't leave each other blind

If you don't want me
My heart can't stand it another time
There's only 24 hours in a day
That don't leave much time to play
I don't dig that no way, honey
'Cause my heart can't take it another day

I've been told by many different girls
"Otis, I love you"

I, I've been let down, hit the ground
And called the biggest, the biggest fool
The biggest fool to ever walk on this ground

I can't stand it
To be built up, way on up, and let down
I don't like that
And I found out later I was wasting my time

Just a waste of time
Somebody understand what I'm saying
It's just a waste of time
If you don't want me

. . .


Sitting here thinking, about the times I've roamed
Different girls that I have known
Of all girls that I have met
You are the one girl that I can't forget, listen

We had our time, now
Good and bad, now
I can't forget a man
I sho' ain't gonna forget him, now

Remember Side Street
Where we used to meet
Making love
Nobody but you and me

Champagne and wine
That's what you gonna get
Champagne and wine
What it's gonna be
Just as long girl, as you see about me

I'm gonna be knocking on your door
I want the same love that I had before, listen
I'm a man now, full grown man
You got me eating from the tip of your hand

I don't mind eatin'
Long as you feed me
Good love and
Good ole sympathy

Champagne and wine
That's what it's gonna be

Everyday, is gonna just be like Sunday
Everynight you're gonna have stars in the sky
Ou giving you
Champagne and wine
I'm gonna give it to you
Ou, ou weeh
Ou, na na na na na na na na na na
Ou weeh baby
Giving you champagne and wine
I want you to love me, baby
I really do need you, honey
Really do wan't you baby...

. . .


I know you told me
Such a long time ago
That you didn't want me
You didn't love me no more

I want to know
Oh, what makes me be
do you believe me child
A fool for you
Ohoh, no, I'm a fool for you

I know you told me
You didn't want me 'round
And I know
You got a man way 'cross town

So I know it's something
Oh, what makes me be
do you believe me child
I'm a fool for you
Ohoh, no, I'm a fool for you

Did ya ever wake up in the morning
Just about the break of day
Reach over and feel the pillow
Where your baby used to lay

Ever since I was five years old
I've been a fool for you

So I know it's something
Believe me child, I'm a fool for you

. . .


Amen, uh, A-Amen, uh
A-Amen, Amen, Amen, with the horns, now
Amen, with the rhythm, now
A-Amen, A-Amen
A-Amen, Amen, Amen, everybody, now
A-Amen, A-Amen
A-Amen, Amen, Amen, let me tell you

This little light of mine
I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I'm gonna let it shine, yeah, yeah

This little light of mine
I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine
To show my love

One thing my pappy used to say he said that

Even in my home son, I said what dad
I'm gonna let it shine, let me tell you
Said, "Even in your home son
You got to let your little light shine, yeah huh
Even in your home son, ha
You've got to let it shine
Just let it shine, just let it shine
To show your love"

And then I said, "Daddy help me sing this line one time"

A-Amen, will you help me
A-Amen, huh, with a feeling
A-Amen, Amen, Amen, everybody together now

A-Amen, little louder now
A-A-Amen, everybody say
A-Amen, Amen, Amen
Amen
