1:  GOOD TIMES BAD TIMES
In the days of my youth
I was told what it was to be a man,
Now I've reached the age
I've tried to do all those things the best I can.
No matter how I try,
I find my way to do the same old jam.

  [chorus]
   Good Times, Bad Times,
   You know I had my share;
   When my woman left home
   With a brown eyed man,
   Well, I still don't seem to care.

Sixteen: I fell in love
With a girl as sweet as could be,
Only took a couple of days
Till she was rid of me.
She swore that she would be all mine
And love me till the end,
When I whispered in her ear
I lost another friend.

  [repeat chorus]

I know what it means to be alone,
I sure do wish I was at home.
I don't care what the neighbors say,
I'm gonna love you each and every day.
You can feel the beat within my heart.
Realize, sweet babe,
we ain't ever gonna part.
2:  BABE, I'M GONNA LEAVE YOU
Babe, baby, baby, I'm Gonna Leave You.
I said baby, you know I'm gonna leave you
I'll leave you when the summertime,
Leave you when the summertime comes arollin
Leave you when the summer comes along.

Baby, baby, I don't wanna leave you,
I ain't jokin' woman, I got to ramble.
Oh, yeah, baby, baby, I won't be there,
Really got to ramble.

I can hear it callin' me
the way it used to do,
I can hear it callin' me back home.

I know, I never leave you, baby.
But I got to go away from this place,
I've got to quit you.  Ooh, baby,
Baby, ooh don't you hear it callin'?

Woman, woman, I know,
I know it's good to have you back again
And I know that one day baby,
it's really gonna grow, yes it is.
We gonna go walkin' through the park every day.
Hear what I say, every day.

Baby, it's really growin',
you made me happy when the skies were grey.
But now I've got to go away
Baby, baby, baby, baby
That's when it's callin' me
That's when it's callin' me back home.
3:  YOU SHOOK ME
You know you shook me,
You shook me all night long.
You know you shook me, baby,
You shook me all night long.

You shook me so hard baby,
Baby, baby, please come home.

I have a bird that whistles,
And I have birds that sing.
I have a bird that whistles,
And I have birds that sing.
I have a bird won't do nothing, oh!
Oh, oh, buy a diamond ring.

You know you shook me, baby,
You shook me all night long.
I know you really, really, did baby.
I said you shook me, baby.
You shook me all night long.
You shook me so hard, baby.
4:  DAZED AND CONFUSED
Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true,
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
Soul of a woman was created below. Yeah!

You hurt and abused - tellin' all of your lies,
Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been,
Oh, I love you baby, here I come again.

Every day I work so hard
Bringin' home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away.
Don't know where you're goin'
I don't know just where you've been,
Sweet little baby, I want you again.

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true,
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will.
Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill?
5:  YOUR TIME IS GONNA COME
Lyin', cheatin', hurtin, that's all you seem to do.
Messin' around with every guy in town,
Puttin' me down for thinkin' of someone new.
Always the same, playin' your game,
Drive me insane, troubles gonna come to you,
One of these days and it won't be long,
You'll look for me, and, baby, I'll be gone.

*Your Time Is Gonna Come (repeat 4 times)

Made up my mind to break you this time,
Won't be so fine, it's my turn to cry.
Do want you want, I won't take the brunt.
It's fadin' away, can't feel you anymore.
Don't care what you say
'cause I'm gone away to stay,
Gonna make you pay for
this great big hole in my heart.
People talkin' all around,
Watch out woman, no longer is
The joke gonna be in my heart.

You been bad to me woman,
But it's coming back home to you.
7:  COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN
Hey, girl, stop what you're doin'!
Hey, girl, you'll drive me to ruin.
I don't know what it is about you,
But I like it alot.
Oh, let me hold you,
Let me feel your lovin' charms.

  [chorus]
    Communication Breakdown,
    It's always the same,
    I'm having a nervous breakdown,
    Drive me insane!

Hey, girl, I got something
I think you ought to know.
Hey, babe, I wanna tell you
that I love you so.
I wanna hold you in my arms,
Yeah!
I'm never gonna let you go,
Yes, I like your charms.

  [repeat chorus]
8:  I CAN'T QUIT YOU BABY
I Can't Quit You, Baby,                                           
So I'm gonna put you down for awhile
I can't quit you, baby,
I guess I gotta put you down for awhile.
Said you messed up my happy home,
Made me mistreat my only child.
Yessir, you did!

Said you know I love you, baby,
My love for you I could never hide.
Oh, you know I love you, baby,
My love for you I could never hide.

Oh, when I feel you near me little girl
I know you are my one desire.

When you hear me moaning and groaning, baby,
You know it hurts me deep down inside.
When you hear me moaning and groaning, baby,
You know it hurts me deep down inside.
Oh, when you hear me, honey, baby,
You know you're my one desire.
Yes, you are.
9:  HOW MANY MORE TIMES
How Many More Times,
Treat me the way you wanna do?
How Many More Times,
Treat me the way you wanna do?
When I give you all my love,
Please, please be true.
I'll give you all I've got to give,
Rings, pearls, and all.
I'll give you all I've got to give,
Rings, pearls, and all.
I've got to get you together baby,
I'm sure, sure you're gonna crawl.
I was a young man, I couldn't resist
Started thinkin' it all over, just what I had missed.
Got me a girl and I kissed her and then and then
Whoops, oh Lordy, well I did it again.
Now I got ten children of my own
I got another child on the way that makes eleven.
But you know, I'm in constant heaven.
I know it's all right in my mind
I got a little schoolgirl and she's all mine
I can't get through to her 'cause it doesn't permit
But I'm gonna give her everything I've got to give.
Oh, Rosie, oh, girl -- Oh, Rosie, oh, girl
Steal away now, steal away
Steal away baby, steal away
Little Robert Anthony wants to come and play.
Why don't you come to me baby?
Steal away, all right, all right...
They call me the hunter, that's my name
They call me the hunter, that's how I got my fame
Ain't no need to hide, Ain't no need to run
'Cause I've got you in the sights of my .........gun!
How Many More Times, Barrelhouse all night long?
How Many More Times, Barrelhouse all night long?
I've got to get to you, baby
Baby, please come home.
Why don't you please come home?
Why don't you please come home?
