Otis Redding Tramp

Tramp!

What you call me?

Tramp.

You didn’t!

You don’t wear continental clothes, or Stetson hats.

Well I tell you one dog-gone thing. It makes me feel good to know one thing. I know I’m a lover.

Matter of opinion.

That’s all right, Mama was. Papa too. And I’m the only child. Lovin’ is all I know to do.

You know what, Otis?

What?

You’re country.

That’s all right.

You straight from the Georgia woods.

That’s good.

You know what? You wear overalls, and big old brogan shoes, and you need a haircut, Tramp.

Haircut? Woman, you foolin’…ooh…I’m a lover. Mama was. Grandmama, Papa too. Boogaloo. All that stuff. And I’m the only son-of-a-gun this side of the Sun. Tramp!

You know what, Otis? I don’t care what you say, you’re still a tramp.

What?

That’s right. You haven’t even got a fat bankroll in your pocket. You probably haven’t even got twenty-five cents.

I got six Cadillacs, five Lincolns, four Fords, six Mercuries, three T-Birds, Mustang, ooooooohhh…I’m a lover. Mama was. Papa too. I tell you one thing.

Well tell me.

I’m the only son-of-a-gun this side of the Sun.

You’re a tramp, Otis.

No I’m not.

I don’t care what you say, you’re still a tramp.

What’s wrong with that?

Look here. You ain’t got no money.

I got everything.

You can’t buy me all those minks and sables and all that stuff I want.

I can buy you minks, rats, frogs, squirrels, rabbits, …anything you want, Woman.

Look, you can go out in the Georgia woods and find them, Baby.

Oh, you foolin’.

You’re still a tramp.

That’s all right.

You a tramp, Otis. You just a tramp.

That’s all right.

You we

Otis Redding Tennessee Waltz

I was dancing with my baby

To that Tennessee Waltz

When an old friend I happened, happened to see

Away from me, yes he did

Otis Redding That’s How Strong My Love Is

If I was the Sun way up there

I’d go with love most everywhere

I’ll be the moon when the sun goes down

Just to let you know that I’m still around.

That’s how strong my love is, woh

Thats how strong my love is baby. baby

I’ll be the weeping willow drowning in my tears

And you can go swimming when you are here

I’ll be the rainbow after the tears are gone

Wrap you in my colors and keep you warm.

That’s how strong my love is, darling

That’s how strong my love is, baby

That’s how strong my love is, woh

That’s how strong my love is.

I’ll be the ocean so deep and wide

And catch all the tears whenever you cry

I’ll be the breeze after the storm is gone

To dry your eyes and love you all warm.

That’s how strong my love is, baby

That’s how strong my love is now

That’s how strong my love is, darling

That’s how strong my love is, again now.

That’s how strong my love is, so deep and wide

Anything the sun can do I will do it for you

Any kind of love you want, I’ll be with you.

Otis Redding Think About It

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
