ALBERT KING lyrics - Corrina, Corrina

ALBERT KING
"Corrina, Corrina"
(Don Nix)

Got a bird that whistles
Baby got a bird, mama got a bird that sings
Baby got a bird, mama got a bird that sings
Without my Corina, life don't mean- life don't mean a natural thing.

I love to love you
Baby 'fore I call, mama 'fore I call your name
Baby 'fore I call, honey 'fore I call your name
I wouldn't trade your love for money. Baby you're my honey, mama you're my baby I explain.

Lord have mercy!
Mama on my bad luck, baby on my hard luck soul.
Baby on my bad luck, mama on my hard luck soul.
You got a ring around my shoulder, it shine like silver, honey look like natural gold
...and I ain't jivin'
Go ahead!

[Guitar solo]

Got a bird that whistles
Mama got a bird, baby got a bird that sings
Mama got a bird, baby got a bird that sings
Without my Corina, life don't mean- life don't mean a natural thing

Corina, you know I love you.
Corina, I got to have you, babe.
I miss you, won't you come on home.

Got a bird that whistles
Baby got a bird, mama got a bird that sings
Baby got a bird, mama got a bird that sings
Without my Corina, life don't mean- life don't mean a natural thing.

I love to love you
Baby 'fore I call, mama 'fore I call your name
Baby 'fore I call, honey 'fore I call your name
I wouldn't trade your love for money. Baby you're my honey, mama you're my baby I scream.

Lord have mercy!
Mama on my bad luck, baby on my hard luck soul.
Baby on my bad luck, mama on my hard luck soul.
You got a ring around my shoulder, it shine like silver, honey look like natural gold
...and I ain't jivin'
Go ahead!

[Guitar solo]

Got a bird that whistles
Mama got a bird, baby got a bird that sings
Mama got a bird, baby got a bird that sings
Without my Corina, life don't mean- life don't mean a natural thing

Corina, you know I love you.
Corina, I got to have you, babe.
I miss you, won't you come on home.
