How long have I been sleeping?
How long have I been drifting alone through the night?
How long have I been running for that morning flight?
Through the whispered promises and the changing light
Of the bed where we both lie
Late for the sky

The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for

 

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
Oh, the engineers would see him sitting in the shade
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
The people passing by they would stop and say
"Oh my what that little country boy could play"

Oh, girl
I'd be in trouble if you left me now
'Cause I don't know where to look for love
I just don't know how

 

Oh, girl
How I depend on you
To give me love when I need it
Right on time you would always be

Some girls take my money, some girls take my clothes
Some girls get the shirt off my back, and leave me with a lethal dose

French girls they want Cartier, Italian girls want cars
American girls want everything in the world you can possibly imagine

English girls they're so prissy, I can't stand them on the telephone
Sometimes I take the receiver off the hook, I don't want them to ever call at all

White girls they're pretty funny, sometimes they drive me mad
Black girls just wanna get ***** all night, I just don't have that much jam

Chinese girls are so gentle, they're really such a tease
You never know quite what they're cookin', inside those silky sleeves

Give me all you money, give me all your gold
I'll buy you a house in Baker Street, and give you half of what I own

Stop callin', stop callin'
I don't wanna think any more
I left my head and heart on the dance floor
Stop callin', stop callin'
I don't wanna talk anymore
I got my head and my heart on the dance floor

 

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
Stop telephonin' me
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
I'm busy, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
Stop telephonin' me
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh

Marvin, he was a friend of mine
And he could sing a song
His heart in every line
Marvin sang of the joy and pain
He opened up our minds
And I still can hear him say
Aw talk to me so you can see
What's going on
Say you will sing your songs
Forevermore 

Gonna be some sweet sounds
Coming down on the nightshift
I bet you're singing proud
Oh I bet you'll pull a crowd
Gonna be a long night
It's gonna be all right
On the nightshift
Oh you found another home
I know you're not alone
On the nightshift

Stand Back
Said stand Back
What are those dogs doing sniffing at my feet?
They're on to something, picking up, picking up this heat

 

This heat, give me steam
And how you feel can make it real
Real as anything you've seen
Get a life with the dreamer's dream

I wish that I could fly
Into the sky
So very high
Just like a dragonfly

 

I'd fly above the trees
Over the seas in all degrees
To anywhere I please, oh

 

I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Need it now just a little bit, just a little bit
(with just a touch of love)
Makes me frown baby just a little bit, just a little bit
(you got to)
Send fire through my spine baby just a little bit, just a little bit
(with just a touch of love)
Can we spend some time?
(can we spend some time)
