ALBERT KING lyrics - Blues Power

ALBERT KING
"Blues Power"
(Albert King)

(Spoken:
This is blues power!

Well

Play it now)

Ev'rybody understands the blues
Are you listening?
YEAH! [audience replies]

I say ev'rybody understands the blues
Ev'rybody from one day to another has the blues

You take the little baby that's layin' in the cradle
He can't get that milk bottle fast enough
He go to kickin' an'cryin'
An' goin' on, tearin' up the little baby bed
He got the blues
Can ya dig it?
YEAH! [audience replies]
Ha, ha, ha

You take this girl that's got this main squeeze
That's her boyfriend, that is, you know

An' he just bought a brand new GTO
You know she wanna be wit' him ev'rytime he cranks it up
An' go around the corner to the soda fountain
This is where she wanna go an'show it off
Where all the girls and guys be
You know what I mean?

An' she get ready to go out this particular night
An' her mother say, "Daughter you was just out last night
You can't go out tonight, that's too many nights in a row"

She go in the room an'fasten the door
An' won't answer the phone, won't eat
Won't talk to nobody
She got the blues
That's what's wrong wit' her

Some people call them the reds, the pinks
When ya get through
It's the old-fashioned country blues
That's right

I haven't seen my main squeeze
In ten long weeks, today
You know I got the blues
Can you dig it? ha, ha, ha
YEAH! [Audience replies]

Woo! Alright!

Ah but wait, I don't think you're with me
Let's ev'rybody get a thing goin' right here
Yes, yes, yes

Can you feel it?
YEAH!
I can't hear you, can you feel it?
YEAH!
Yes, yes
Sounds awful good, keep it, keep it, right there chilin'
Keep it right there, ha ha ha ha

The blues!
An' when you're doin' the blues
They so strong, that's the reason there named
They call 'em blues power, yeah

An' would you believe I invented blues power?
YEAH!
Ha, ha
Can you dig the blues power?
YEAH!
Let ev'rybody say "yeah"
YEAH!
Say it again, say "yeah"
YEAH!

Alright! Alright! Hey! Hey! Hey! Oh! Alright
Ha, ha, ha! Well! Woo! Ha, ha, ha! Oh man! Hey!
Ooh-oh!
Woo!

Thank you!
Thank you very much!
Thank you very kindly!
