Bill Withers Cold Baloney

Cold Baloney, and I’m home by myself.

Well I’m five years old, and it sure is cold

Mama’s out cookin’ steak for someone else

Sure am sleepy, but I’m gonna wait till my mama comes

Well if the rich folks don’t eat up all that good meat,

Mama’s gonna brings me some.

Talking about that cold baloney, mayonnaise, and bread

Well if it wasn’t for cold baloney, you know I would have been dead.

Poor mama, she sure looks tired

She said “what you eatin’ son?”

“I believe that cold baloney sandwich looks good.

Would you please fix you mama one?”

Talking about cold baloney, mayonnaise, and bread

Well if it wasn’t for cold baloney, you know I would have been dead

Baloney was good enough for my father, good enough for my mother

That baloney saved me and my brother

Cold baloney, mayonnaise, and bread

Bill Withers World Keeps Going Around

Looking at the pictures of the places that he’s been

Old man told me what he found

Said it don’t make no difference whether you’re out or whether you’re in

You know the world keeps going around and around

Going around and around

Said he looked at the places, talk to the faces that he seen

Then he turned the pictures upside down

Said it don’t make no difference how many places that you’ve been

Said the world keeps going around and around

Going around and around

Then he put up the pictures shook his head and with a grin

He talked about his ups and downs

Said it don’t make no difference how many fixes you’ve been in

You know the world keeps going around and around

Going around and around

Betty Joe Johnson

Don’t you pull no Daisy Mae on me

Daisy Mae she did me dirty

So I had to leave her for Anna Lee

Anna Lee she had big street feet

She spends her nights out on the road

So I started seeing Sally Jackson

I had to let old Anna Lee go

Sally Jackson was a player

Had another man along with me

So I just took me one step backwards

Checked up on old Anna Lee

Anna Lee still had them street feet

Like to dance all night and sleep all day

So I just took one more step backwards

Checked up on old Daisy Mae

Daisy Mae is still doing dirty

So I tell you what I had to do

I had to go just one step further

Betty Joe Johnson

And that’s how I know you

Said he looked at the places, talk to the faces that he seen

Then he turned the pictures upside down

Said it don’t make no difference how many places that you’ve been

Said the world keeps going around and around

Going around and around

Bill Withers Everybody’s Talking

Everybody’s talkin’ at me

I don’t hear a word they’re sayin’

Only the echoes of my mind

People stop, starin’ at me

I don’t even see their faces

Only the shadow of their eyes

Going where the sun keeps a-shinin’

Through the pourin’ rain

Goin’ where the weather suits my clothes

Bankin’ off the northeast wind

Sailin’ on a summer breeze

Skippin’ over the ocean like a stone

Why, why, why, why?

Why, why, why, why?

I said, everybody keeps talkin’ at me

I don’t hear a word they’re sayin’, now

Only the echoes of my mind

People stop, starin’ at me

I don’t even see their faces

Only the shadow of their eyes

Skippin’, skippin’, skippin’, skip, skip

Over the ocean like a stone

I said, why, why, why?

Why, why?

Bill Withers If I Didn’t Mean You Well

If I didn’t mean you well

I’d go and find another place to play

I’d entertain myself a better way

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

If I didn’t mean you well

I’m aware you just can’t tell

If people really mean the things they say

But I’ve been lied to, too much in my day

To play games that way

If I didn’t mean you well

Bill Withers Lovely Day

When I wake up in the morning, love

And the sunlight hurts my eyes

And something without warning, love

Bears heavy on my mind

Then I look at you

And the world’s alright with me

Just one look at you

And I know it’s gonna be

A lovely day

… lovely day, lovely day, lovely day …

When the day that lies ahead of me

Seems impossible to face

When someone else instead of me

Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you

And the world’s alright with me

Just one look at you

And I know it’s gonna be

A lovely day…..

When the day that lies ahead of me

Seems impossible to face

When someone else instead of me

Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you

And the world’s alright with me

Just one look at you

And I know it’s gonna be

A lovely day……

Bill Withers Ain’t No Sunshine

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

It’s not warm when she’s away

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

And she’s always gone too long

Anytime she goes away

Wonder this time where she’s gone

Wonder if she’s gone to stay

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

And this house just ain’t no home

Anytime she goes away

And I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know

Hey, I oughtta leave young thing alone

But ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

Only darkness every day

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

And this house just ain’t no home

Anytime she goes away

Anytime she goes away

Anytime she goes away

Anytime she goes away
