Martha Reeves Spooky

In the cool of the evening

When everything is getting kind of groovy

You call me up and ask me

If I would you like to go with you and see a movie

First I say no, I’ve got some plans for the night

And then I stop and say, alright

Love is kinda crazy with the spooky old lady like me

I always keep you guessing

You never seem to know what I am thinking

And if a fellow looks at me

You can bet my little eye will be a-winking

You get so confuse, cause you don’t know where I stand

And then I smile and hold your hand

Love is kinda crazy with the spooky old lady like me

I’m spooky

When I decided one day to stop this little game that I was playing

[?] me all the things your heart that you been dying to be saying

Oh I had been like a ghost that have haunted your dreams

Then you [?] to me on Halloween

Loving can be crazy with the spooky old lady like me

Spooky

Spooky, that’s what you say

You call me spooky

Spooky, that’s what you say

You say, I’m spooky

Martha Reeves Wild Night

As you brush your shoes

And stand before the mirror

And you comb your hair

And grab your coat and hat

And you walk, wet streets

Tryin’ to remember

All the wild breezes

In your mem’ry ever

And ev’rything looks so complete

When you’re walkin’ out on the street

And the wind catches your feet

And sends you flyin’, cryin’

Ooh-wee!

The wild night is calling

And all the girls walk by

Dressed up for each other

And the boys do the boogie-woogie

On the corner of the street

And the people passin’ by

Just stare in wild wonder

And the inside juke-box

Roars out just like thunder

And ev’rything looks so complete

When you’re walkin’ out on the street

And the wind will catch your feet

And sends you flyin’, cryin’

Ooh-wee!

The wild night is calling

Ooh-wee

The wild night is calling

Come on out and dance yeah

Come on out and make romance

Come on out and dance

Come on out and make romance

The wild night is calling

The wild wild night is calling

Come on out and dance

Come on out and make romance yeah

Come on out and dance

Come on out and make romance…

Martha Reeves Nowhere To Run

Nowhere to run, baby, nowhere to hide

Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide

It’s not love I’m running from

It’s the heartbreak I know will come

‘Cause I know you’re no good for me

But you’ve become a part of me

Everywhere I go, your face I see

Every step I take you take with me

Nowhere to run, baby, nowhere to hide

Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide

I know you’re no good for me

But free of you I’ll never be

Each night as I sleep

Into my heart you creep

I wake up feeling sorry I met you

Hoping soon that I’ll forget you

When I look in the mirror to comb my hair

I see your face just a-smilin’ there

Nowhere to run, baby, nowhere to hide

Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide

I know you’re no good for me

But you’ve become a part of me

How can I fight a love that shouldn’t be

When it’s so deep, so deep, deep inside of me

My love reaches so high I can’t get over it

It’s so wide I can’t get around it

Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide

Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide

I know you’re no good for me

But free of you I’ll never be

Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide

Just can’t get away from you baby, no matter how I try
