Got it Bad


Like a lonely weepin' willow who's lost in the wood
I got it bad and that ain't good
And the things i tell my pillow nobody should
I got it bad, i got it bad and it's no good

I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good
(Ellington/Webster)

Never Look Back


Last night they loved you, opening doors and pulling some strings angel
Come get up my baby
In walked luck and you looked in time
Never look back, walk tall, act fine
Come get up my baby
