Sly & The Family Stone Better Thee Than Me

Better thee than me, if you in that weather

Better thee than me, if you are heavy feather

Would you try to share a funny religion

Would you have to bear a dummy’s decision

Better thee than me, I’m strokin’ and hopin’

Better thee than me, I’m strokin’ and hopin’

Better thee than me ’cause you’re jokin’

What you sayin’

Better thee than me, help me there, I can make it

Let me be, better let me be while you fake it

Stop your pout, stop your pout, let me step and work it out

Every thing’s gonna drop, you better change your route

Till the sail is jerkin’

Yeah, I would try to stay, but you’re drivin’

Love yourself, love you babe

Better thee than me if you won’t respect me

Sly & The Family Stone Back On The Right Track

Hey hey hey hey hey

I believe that I’m back

I believe I’m on the right track

Hey hey hey hey hey

I know the feelin’ of bein’ without

When deep within you’re deep without

Only way to clear the doubt

Is turnin’ all your insides out

Time in for gettin’ back

I believe, I believe

(That) I’m on the right track

Time in Tor gettin’ back

I believe. I believe

That I’m on the right track

Hey hey hey hey hey

I believe that I’m back

I believe I’m on the right track

Hey hey hey hey hey

Sometimes… that has caused so much

Is really not at all to touch

If what I see is right in front of me

There’s no reason to need a crutch

Time in for gettin’ back

I believe, I believe

(That) I’m on the right track

Time in Tor gettin’ back

I believe. I believe

That I’m on the right track

[x2]

Hey hey hey hey hey

I believe that I’m back

I believe I’m on the right track

Hey hey hey hey hey

Ain’t it sweet when finding out

That deep within you’re not without

When nothingness had…

I’m just turnin’ my insides out

Time in for gettin’ back

I believe, I believe

(That) I’m on the right track

Time in Tor gettin’ back

I believe. I believe

That I’m on the right track

Time in for gettin’ back [Repeat and fade]

Sly & The Family Stone (You Caught Me) Smilin’

You caught me smilin’ again.

You caught me smilin’ again.

Hangin’ loose

‘Cause you ain’t used to seeing me turnin’ on.

You caught me smilin’ again.

You caught me smilin’ again.

I’ll be gone

And it won’t take you long to climb a tree about me.

You caught me smilin’ again.

You caught me smilin’ again.

I’ll be around to carry on!

Hey, you caught me smilin’ again.

You caught me smilin’ again.

In my pain I’ll be sane to take your hand.

Sly & The Family Stone Advice

Take my advice if you want a lover

I’m not going to be your brother

Are you afraid of what you might want to do

Or is reality hard for you

You used to get yourself together

I’ve been treating you like bad weather

Scared your friends will get on you

You were too cautious when I warned you

One of these days you’re gonna take off my shoes

You’re gonna bring me the paper so I can read the news

I’m gonna love you so good

I’m gonna throw your mind

The fort of my love will got to dry your tide

Ain’t nowhere for you to run

Your hope and wishes killed all your fun

Exhibition of what you don’t know

Might be the reason for you to throw upon

Relax your mind and show your heart

I’ve never been your brother even from the start

I’ve always loved you, let me see your heart

Take down that wall to play your part
