Cheap Affairs

There’s an oh-so bitter shady side to romance
Where one cheap affair is followed by another
It was my misfortune to suffer there
But I don’t care
Now that you’re here to love me
 
Before I found my way to you
I rolled and tumbled through some cheap affairs
Way down where life is loose
You lose
I’ve been the victim of some cheap affairs
Every once in a while
Someone would smile
And I would take another chance every once in a while
I went through the motions of making love
 
Cheap affairs
Living in the loneliness
Cheap affairs
Living out the blues
Oh, baby
Can you love a woman like me
After all this time I’ve been around
 
I may not be the virgin lover your mother talked about
I have been touched by human hands
It was my misfortune to suffer there
But I don’t care
Now that you really love me
 
Before I found my way to you
Every interlude became a cheap affair
And every raunchy rendezvous
Was nothing more than just a cheap affair
 
Yes, I know
I’ve been low down
But I am the woman you’ve been waiting for
I’m a tough mama now
I can blow your whistle ’til you say no more
(No more)
 

California Sunset

California Sunset setting down on me
Purple skies at surfside everywhere I see
Sweet memories like shadows
Waiting in my room
They try to bring me back to you
It’s more than I can do
 
To keep from coming through your window
Sleeping by your door
Or calling you at midnight to say
I love you so much more than I did before
I love you so
I love you so
I love you so much more than I did before
 
New York City winters
Bring me to my knees
Harbour lights on cold nights
Faces that I see
Just make me want to be your shadow
Walking on with you
I tried to keep my distance now
But it’s more than I can do
 
To keep from coming through your window
Sleeping by your door
Or calling you at midnight to say
I love you so much more than I did before
 

Learned To Dance Too Soon

Don’t blame me, baby, if I jiggle your table
When the fancy dancing band begins to play
Don’t cry to me ‘cause you’re not able
Cause you can’t move and shimmy
And shake this way
No, don’t try to stop me, 'cause I was raised this way
 
Oh, honey, I learned to dance too soon
To stop dancing now
I learned to dance too soon to stop dancing now
Do the boogie woogie with me, sugar
We can dance away our cares
 
Don’t you look for me at the ladies’ parlor
Where the ladies fix their pretty hair
You won’t find me shootin’ up the pinball
Cause there’s not enough commotion there
No, don’t you bother looking
You know where I will be
 
I told you my mama was a dancer
And my daddy was a dancing bear
You know I was born in the dance hall
And got my education there
No use trying to change me
I was raised in a dancing way
 

Under The Cover Of Darkness

I got hoo-doo voo-doo
I got news for you
I know where you're coming from
 
I know what you're doing, baby
 
You do like you want to
Such a clever man
But I can chain you to my sofa
Cause I got hocus pocus
 
I never close my eyes
I see all the wickedness there is
Under the cover of darkness
 
Hoo-doo gonna get you
Voo-doo
Hoo-doo
Voo-doo
I've seen so many jokers like you way down here
Under the cover of darkness
 
I got mumbo-jumbo
I got tricks I never used
I got power
I got glory
I got blue suede shoes
 
You may not believe me
You just laugh and gain
But I can put you out of focus
Cause I got hocus pocus
 
I never close my eyes
I see all the wickedness there is
Under the cover of darkness
 
Hoo-doo gonna get you
Voo-doo
I've been elected to fix every joker like you
And I will
Under the cover of darkness
 

City Rhythm

City rhythm got me now
Oh, rock-a my soul
Arrhythmic pulse of the cardiac pounding
Here in rhythm city
 
We got hot blood walking on the street
Flashing in the light show
Sidewalk cracks under dancing feet
That is how the juice flows
 
In the heat of one sweet summer night
Ease on in to something that feels right to you
Let your heart beat with song
To the metro metronome
You will never be alone
 
You got city rhythm
You got city rhythm
 
City rhythm's got you now
Oh, rock-a your soul
Your rhythm is right
And you've found your home here in rhythm city
 
We got shot gun smoking from the heat
Like the blue lava
Mainstreet shakes from a volcano
The heart of the beat where the city strutters let go
 
You got city rhythm
You got city rhythm
 

What Would You Do If Your Heart Stopped Beating Tonight

What would you do if your heart stopped beating tonight
Would it be alright with you
Would it be alright with you, my love
 
What do you do with the love they try to give you
What did you do with the love they gave before
I get high ‘cause I loved you
But you never did destroy me
And I cry for those who long for something more
 
What would you do if your heart stopped beating tonight
Who would hold you, oh, my love
Who would be there when your heart stops beating
What would you do if I laid beside you tonight
Would you feel it if you found the feeling
 
What do you do with the love I try to give you
What did you do with the love I gave before
I get high ‘cause I loved you
But I never did destroy you
And I cry for those who long for something more
 

So Cozy

Here we are together again
So cozy
Feeling your sin
Touch my body this way
I can’t shake it
 
You make it so cozy here
Here I go falling for you
Oh, baby, I never meant to
How could I turn away
When you take me and make me so cozy here
 
I never had a place to be
Until we found each other
Every day I love you more than yesterday
And for the first time in my life
It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright
 
It’s alright to kiss you like this
It’s alright to hold you like this
Oh, so cozy, I can’t shake it
You make it so cozy here
 
Your cigarette glows in the dark
The sound of your voice pulls at my heart
I want to stay here forever together
So cozy with you
 

Broken Woman

A broken woman sits at the bar
Sipping gin and tonic
She thinks she's the star
The star of the dance floor
The goddess of love
She shakes to the music till the last song is gone
 
She wants to change
At least that's what she says
But she just can't relate
She just can't find herself
What a foolish broken woman
 
Her face is aging, oh, yes it is
The years take hold
She's got lines on her skin and marks on her soul
It's money she's after; pills are a must
She's clutching at life
But all she touches turns to dust
 
She wants to change
At least that's what she says
But she just can't relate
She just can't find herself
What a foolish broken woman
 
She is drunk and half crazy
Every night when she leaves the bar
And then she drives through the night
In her big shiny car
Nobody loves her; nobody cares
She's all by herself
No one wants to be there with her
 
She wants to change
At least that's what she says
But she just can't relate
She just can't find herself
What a foolish broken woman
She's got the broken woman blues
 

Diamond In The Rough

You've heard the way people talk about me
Do you like the things they say
Or do you find it disconcerting and unkind
It's a joke I've learned to live with
Being different from the crowd
They'd like to polish me up
Give me a trim, water me down, make me be like them
 
But I'm a diamond in the rough
A diamond in the rough
Taking my time
Deciding when to shine
Diamond in the rough
Diamond in the rough
 
Diamond in the rough
Diamond in the rough
 
I had hoped that you would love me
Since I could fall in love with you
Could we find our place in each other somewhere tonight
Oh, I hope so
Or has the talk decayed the beauty
That we once began to find
Would you like to polish me up
Give me a trim, water me down, make me be like them
 
I'm still a diamond in the rough
A diamond in the rough
Taking my time, deciding when to shine
Diamond in the rough
Diamond in the rough
 
Diamond in the rough, diamond in the rough
 

We Are One

You sleep just like a baby
After you've been holding me
With tenderness and with love
And as I watch you sleeping
My heart builds up with feelings
That make me cry the tears of love
 
We are one, you and me baby
In body and soul, we are one
We take care of our special love
And when the morning comes
And in the face of the sun
We'll still be together
We are one, we are one
 
As I watch you sleepin'
I wonder how I'd ever live without you dear
Oh, without your love
My fingers trace your brow
And then I feel a tingle deep inside, takin' a high
We were making love, oh love
 
We are one, you and me baby
In body and soul, we are one
We take care of our special love
And when the mornin' comes
And in the face of the sun
We'll still be together
We are one, we are one
 
And when the mornin' comes
And in the face of the sun
We'll still be together
 
We are one
We are one
