Iemand om mee te praten

Blindelingse Greep nr. 84 in de RG-Collectie levert weer een lp van Lou Rawls op, een tribuut aan Sam Cooke, bij wie hij op Bring it on home to me tweede stem was. Ik kies deze track van het album getiteld Bring it on home.

Another Saturday night and I ain’t got nobody
I got some money ‘cause i just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I’m in an awful way

I got in town a month ago, I’ve seen a lotta girls since then
If I could meet ‘em I could get ‘em but as yet I haven’t met ‘em
That’s why I’m in the shape I’m in

Here’s another Saturday night and I ain’t got nobody
I got some money ‘cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I’m in an awful way

Another fellow told me he had a sister who looked just fine
Instead of being my deliverance, she had a strange resemblance
to a cat named Frankenstein

Here’s another Saturday night and I ain’t got nobody
I got some money ‘cause I just got paid
How I wish I had some chick to talk to
I’m in an awful way

It’s hard on a fellow, when he don’t know his way around
If I don’t find me a honey to help me spend my money
I’m gonna have to blow this town

Here it is another Saturday night and I ain’t got nobody
I got some money ‘cause I just got paid
How I wish I had some chick to talk to
I’m in an awful way


Another Saturday night, 1970
