Little Richard The Dock Of The Bay

Sittin’ in the morning sun

I’ll be sittin’ when the evening comes

Watching the ships roll in

Then I watch ’em roll away again, yeah

I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Watching the tide roll away

Ooh, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay wastin’ time

I left my home in Georgia

Headed for the Frisco bay

‘Cos I’ve had nothing to live for

And look like nothing’s gonna come my way

So I’m just gonna sit on the dock of the bay

Watching the tide roll away

Ooh, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay wastin’ time

Look like nothing’s gonna change

Everything still remains the same

I can’t do what ten people tell me to do

So I guess I’ll remain the same, listen

Sittin’ here resting my bones

And this loneliness won’t leave me alone, listen

2000 miles I’ve roamed

Just to make this dock my home

Now I’m just gonna sit at the dock of the bay

Watching the tide roll away

Ooh wee, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay wastin’ time

Little Richard Don’t Deceive Me

People are talking all over town

They say you’re tired of me

Going to put me down

Please don’t leave me

Don’t deceive me

Please don’t go

You know I love you

You know it’s true

That’s why you treat me

The way you do

You said you loved me

You said you loved me

Please don’t go

When I first met you

No, I didn’t love you

I just tried to treat you nice

Since I’ve been with you

Yes, I’ve learned to love you

And I want you all the

Rest of my life

I used to call you my lover boy

You were always my pride and joy

Please don’t leave me

You know you’ll grieve me

Please don’t go

Little Richard Hey Hey Hey Hey

Line up girls, I’ll show you what to do

This boat will sparkle like a diamond when we get through

By the numbers there ain’t much time

We’re gonna start an assembly line

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

You get the sandpaper, you get the pails

You get the hammer, baby, you get the nails

You get the paint, you get the brush

‘Cause we’re gonna give it the special touch

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

We got a magic potion that will help us win

I don’t know how to spell it, but dip right in

Glycooxytonic phosphate, it’s the latest scoop

But it’s alright, girls, you can call it “Goop”

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Work the sandpaper, hammer that nail

Tote that paintbrush and lift that pail

Get a rhythm going, nice and easy

Come on and use a little elbow greasey

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

OK, girls, when we’re all through

I’m gonna tell you what we’re gonna do

We’ll fall right down and have some fun

And I’m gonna kiss you all, one by one

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Huh, Huh, Huh

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Huh, Huh, Huh

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Little Richard Directly From My Heart

Direct

Directly from my heart to you

Direct

Directly from my heart to you

Oh, you know that I love you

That’s why I feel so blue

Oh, I pray

Our love would last away

I pray

That our love would last away

Yeah, we’d be so happy together

But you’re so far away

Well, I need

(Oh, baby, need you baby)

I need you by my side

Well, I need

Yes, I need you by my side

Oh, I’d loved you little darlin’

Your love I could never hide

Little Richard Hurry Sundown

Hurry down

Hurry down sun

Hurry down

I said sun! Won’t you hurry on, on down?

Let the weary day be over

I’m so tired of hurt, I’ve been taken

My heart has been aching so

Don’t mind struggling

I don’t mind living on a little

If someday my kids are laughing together

And having things I never own

I can feel the changes are coming

Beat them drums in a distance, a drumming

Telling the world of a brand new future has begun

So you got to hurry sundown

I can’t wait to see the morning

There’s a lot of work I must lend a hand to

So bring on that new day

Afraid tomorrow is on it’s way

Hurry sundown…

Little Richard Cherry Red

Run here, pretty mama

Sit down on your daddy’s knee

I’m gonna tell everybody, baby

How you’ve been sending me

You’re sending me

She got great, big legs

And she [?]

My way from the ground

And every time you kiss me, baby

Don’t you know my love, my love

Come tumbling down, come running on down

Mama, if that’s your secret

Baby, you better keep it, you better keep it

You better keep it all to yourself

Because if you tell me, tell me, tell me

Tell me, tell me, tell me mama

I’m gonna surely, surely tell somebody else

Gonna tell somebody else

[?]

I said take me, pretty mama

Oh, I want you to rock me

[?] rock me, baby

Throw me in that big brass bed

I want you to rock me, rock me

Rock me, rock me, rock me, mama

Until my face turn cherry, cherry red

Cherry red, cherry red, cherry red

I said cherry red

I want you to hug me, mama

Kiss me and hug me and

Throw me in your big brass bed
