Gladys Knight Good Morning Heartache

Good morning heartache

You old gloomy sight

Good morning heartache

Thought we said goodbye last night

I turned and tossed until it seemed you were gone

But here you are with the dawn

Wish I’d forget you, but you’re here to stay

It seems I met you

When my love went away

Now everyday I start by saying to you

Good morning heartache, what’s new?

Stop haunting me now

Can’t shake you nohow

Just leave me alone

I’ve got those Monday blues

Straight through Sunday blues

Good morning heartache

Here we go again

Good morning heartache

You’re the one who knew me when…

Might as well get used to you hanging around

Good morning heartache

Sit down…

Gladys Knight Come Sunday

Ooooh…

Lord, dear Lord above, God almighty,

God of love, Please look down and see my people through.

I believe that God put sun and moon up in the sky.

I don’t mind the gray skies

’cause they’re just clouds passing by.

Heaven is a goodness time. A brighter light on high.

Do unto others as you would have them do to you.

And have a brighter by and by.

Lord, dear Lord above, God almighty,

God of love, Please look down and see my people through.

I believe God is now, was then and always will be.

With God’s blessing we can make it through eternity.

Lord, dear Lord above, God almighty,

God of love, Please look down and see my people through.

Gladys Knight Grandma’s Hands

Ohh yeah, baby

Baby don’t you run so fast

She was always giving us a warning

Might be snakes there in that grass

She was looking out?

Grandma’s hands

I remember them well

“Grandma’s hands

Clapped in church on Sunday morning”, she said

Grandma’s hands played the tambourine so well

Grandma’s hands used to issue out a warning

She’d say, “Gladys don’t you run so fast

Might fall on a piece of glass

Might be snakes there in that grass!”

Grandma’s hands

Look at here

Grandma’s hands soothed a local unwed mother

Grandma’s hands used to ache sometimes and swell

Grandma’s hands used to lift her face and tell her

She’d say, “Baby, grandma understands

That you really love that man

Put yourself in Jesus’ hands”

Grandma’s hands

Alright, alright, alright, alright

Couldn’t wait till Sunday morning

Oh baby don’t you run so fast

Cooking up that fried chicken

Smelling up the whole house

“Gladys don’t you run so fast

Might fall on a piece of glass

Might be snakes there in that grass!”

Grandma’s hands

Listen to this

Ain’t nothing like grandma’s hands

Ain’t nothing like a

Ain’t nothing like grandma’s hands

Ain’t nothing like grandma’s hands

Family is a gift from God

With this song I’d like to pay harness

To one of it’s members

Over the years her importance has been diminished

Her image tarnished, but to me she’ll always be a rare jewel

I’ve heard her called by many loving nicknames

Nana, Mimi, Mamaw, Big Mama, Poppi

But unlike millions of others, I simply call her grandma

Ain’t nothing like grandma’s hands

Ain’t nothing like grandma’s hands

Let me tell you this

Grandma’s hands used to hand me a piece of candy

Grandma’s hands picked me up each time I fell

Grandma’s hands boy, they really came in handy

She’d say, “Baby, don’t you whip that boy

What you want to spank him for?

He didn’t drop no apple core!”

I don’t have grandma anymore

If I get to heaven I’ll look for?

Grandma’s hands, hey, hey, hey

Ohh yeah, ohh yeah, so tight

Ain’t nothing like grandma’s hands

Used to hand me some candy

Grandma’s hands picked me up when I fell

Grandma’s hands boy, they really came in handy

She’d say, “Baby, don’t you whip that boy

What you want to whip him for?

He didn’t drop no apple core!”

Ain’t nothing like grandma’s hands, no

Grandma’s hands

Ain’t nothing like grandma’s hands

Ain’t nothing like grandma’s hands, no

Grandma’s hands

Ain’t nothing like grandma’s hands

Gladys Knight Just Walk In My Shoes

Walk in my shoes

This hurt inside is too much for me

Just walk in my shoes

You’ll see I want the love that used to be

Try on my heartache

Go ahead and try it on for size

Just walk in my shoes

Then you’ll see through someone else’s eyes

What you’ve done to me

I fell apart when you walked out

(I just can’t get myself together anymore)

(‘Cause I need, I need the love that we had)

Oh, baby

(We had to fall)

Well, why don’t you walk, walk, walk in my shoes?

(Walk in my shoes)

And you’ll wear a smile that isn’t real

Just walk in my shoes

And you’ll know how broken up I feel

Try out each new day

Wear the cloak of loneliness, I know

Just walk in my shoes

Or do you since you let me go

(Walk in my shoes)

Keep on walking

Walk on

(Walk in my shoes)

Walk on, walk on

Darling, I fell apart

Baby, baby, baby, when you walked out

(I just can’t get myself together anymore)

(‘Cause I need, I need the love that we had)

Whoa oh, baby

(We had to fall)

Well, why don’t you walk, walk, walk in my shoes?

(Walk in my shoes)

And I pray that you’ll remember when

And if the shoe fits

Won’t you say, you want my love again?

(Walk in my shoes)

Keep on walking

Walk on

(Walk in my shoes)

Keep on walking

Whoa oh

Whoa oh

Whoa oh, oh

(Walk in my shoes)

Walking

(Walk in my shoes)

Keep on walking

(Walk in my shoes)

Walk, walk, walk in my shoes

Gladys Knight Help Me Make It Through The Night

Take the ribbon from my hair

Shake it loose and let it fall

Layin’ soft against your skin

Like the shadow on the wall

Come and lay down by ma side

Till the early mornin’ light

All I’m takin’ is your time

Help me make it through the night

I don’t care what’s right or wrong

‘n’ I won’t try to understand

Let the devil take tomorrow

Lord, tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone

And tomorrow’s out of sight

And it’s sad to be alone

Help me make it through the night

And it’s sad to be alone

Help me make it through the night

I don’t want to be alone

Help me make it through the night

Gladys Knight Ain’t No Sun Since You’ve Been Gone

Into my life

You brought a glowing love

Like a ray of sunshine

From up above

One day out of a clear blue sky

You darkened my life with your words “goodbye”

That’s the day you left me for a stranger

Don’t you know that when you left my life

Took on a change-a?

Now I’m telling you it

Ain’t no sun since you’ve been gone

There’s a big black cloud hanging over my head

Cloud of loneliness I feel like I’m dead

Ain’t no flowers blooming round here for sure

Since you chose to love me no more

I guess you know you took my sunshine away from me baby, boy

You took the life from my world

Crushed my dreams

And I don’t mean maybe, baby, baby

And it ain’t no sun since you’ve been gone

Oh, my future, my future

Was as bright as the sun, yes it was

I ain’t got no future since you’ve been gone

I guess you know you took my sunshine away from me baby, yes you did

You took the life from my world

Crushed my dreams

And I don’t mean maybe, baby, baby

It seems like night in the middle of the day

Everything around me is faded and grey

Cold are the days

Dark creeps the night

Never bringing you back into my life

It ain’t no sun since you’ve been gone

You took my sunshine away, yeah ooh, ooh, ooh

You took my sunshine away, yes you did, ooh, ooh, ooh

You took my sunshine away, yeah, ooh, ooh, ooh

You took my sunshine away, oh

Gladys Knight Someone To Watch Over Me

There’s a saying old says that love is blind

Still we’re often told “seek and ye shall find”

So I’m going to seek a certain girl I’ve had in mind

Looking everywhere, haven’t found her yet

She’s the big affair I cannot forget

Only girl I ever think of will regret

I’d like to add her initial to my monogram

Tell me where’s the shepherd for this lost lamb

There’s a somebody I’m longing to see

I hope that she turns out to be

Someone who’ll watch over me

I’m a little lamb who’s lost in a wood

I know I could always be good

To one who’ll watch over me

Although she may not the girl some men think of

As handsome to my heart

She carries the key

Won’t you tell her please to put on some speed

Follow my lead, oh how I need

Someone to watch over me

Someone to watch over me

Gladys Knight Better Love Next Time

I wish I could have given you

Everything you need

The power to believe

The stuff that sets you free

I wish I was the answer to

Everything you want

Shelter from the storm

Somewhere to belong

It’s not easy to make dream come true I know

So this much I wish for you before you go

Better Luck Next Time Baby

For all eternity

Even if its not with me

I wish you all that love could be

Maybe the next time baby

The sun will wanna shine

Seek and you will find

Better Luck

Next Time

I hope you find someone to give you

What I couldn’t give

Though I just can’t imagine

What that something is

I hope you wake up every day

With roses at your door

Someone to live for

A heart that knows for sure

But if I can’t be the one to hold your hand

No sense stopping you

if there’s someone who can

Better Luck Next Time Baby

For all eternity

Even if its not with me

I wish you all that love could be

Better Luck Next Time Baby

The sun is gonna shine

Seek and you will find

Better Luck

(Better Luck

Next Time)

I wanna see you walk away with someone else

Wanna keep you here all to myself

Believe me if I could I would

(Believe me if I could I would)

Gonna take a lot of love to let you go

But anyone who ever loved like this would know

Oh they would know

(Next Time Baby)

(I hope that’s what you get)

I hope that’s what you get

(Remember me with no regrets)

(Live in peace and happiness)

Better Luck Next Time Baby

Somewhere down the line

Seek and you will find

Better Luck

Next Time

(Next Time)

(Next Time)
