FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND ( FULL VERSION )

Written By: JUSTICE/HELPERIN

IT'S A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
NO COIN TO SPEND
ANOTHER FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
I'M ALONE AGAIN
MY BABY WON"T LOVE ME
WHEN I'VE GOT NO CASH
ON A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND TAKES OFF SO FAST
AND I'M SITIN' HERE SO LONELY
GOT NOTHING TO DO
ON A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
I'M ALONE AND BLUE

IT'S A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
CAR'S OUT OF GAS AGAIN
ON A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
BOTTLE OF BEERS MY FRIEND
MY BABYS OUT DRINKING
YEAH SHE'S RUNNING AROUND
ON A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
SHE NEVER STICKS AROUND
AND I'M SITTIN' HERE SO LONELY
GOT NOTHING TO DO
ON THIS FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
ALONE AND BLUE

IT'S A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
LANDLORD WANT'S HIS RENT
ANOTHER FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
MONEY'S ALL BEEN SPENT
MY BABY'S OUT MESSIN
FINDING SOMEONE TO LOVE
ON A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
SHE LIKES TO STRUT HER STUFF
I'M SITTIN' HERE JUST DRINKING
CRYING IN MY BEER
ANOTHER FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
NOBODY'S HERE

A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
NO COIN TO SPEND
ANOTHER FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
I'M ALONE AGAIN
MY BABY WON'T LOVE ME
WHEN I'VE GOT NO CASH
ON A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
SHE TAKES OFF SO FAST
AND I'M SITTIN' HERE SO LONELY
GOT NOTHIN' TO DO
THESE FORTY DOLLAR WEEKENDS
LEAVE A MAN SO BLUE

ANOTHER FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
THAT'S ALL I'VE GOT TO SPEND A FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
WHAT I"M GONNA DO MY FRIEND
SPEND TEN DOLLARS ON A BOTTLE
TEN DOLLARS ON A ROOM
FIND ME A TWENTY DOLLAR WOMAN
FORGET ABOUT MY GLOOM
THEN JUST MAYBE TOMORROW
YES I'LL BE FREE
TIL ANOTHER FORTY DOLLAR WEEKEND
GET'S A HOLD OF ME

BLIND DADDY BLUES

Written By: JUSTICE/HELPERIN

He Was Just Blind
Now Daddy He's Blue
She Took His Name
And Left Him A Fool

WELL, I WAS JUST BLIND
NOW DADDY I'M BLUE
THAT DAY AT THE CHURCH
MY NAME TO YOU
I LOVE YOU FOREVER
TILL DEATH DO WE PART
THRU SICKNESS AND HEALTH DEAR
I 'LL GIVE YOU MY HEART
MY EYES ARE WIDE OPEN
BUT I COULDN'T SEE
YOU TOOK MY NAME
LEFT ME MISERY

He Was Just Blind
Now Daddy He's Blue
She Took His Name
And Left Him A Fool

THE REVEREND HE PRAYED
BUT I COULDN"T SEE
THE CARDS HE WAS PLAYING
WERE STACKED AGAINST ME
I LOVE YOU FOREVER
TIL DEATH DO WE PART
THRU SICKNESS AND HEALTH DEAR
I'LL GIVE YOU MY HEART
THE JOKER WAS WILD
THE KING HAD ONE EYE
THE QUEEN THAT I LOVED
SHE LEFT ME TO CRY

He Was Just Blind
Now Daddy He'S Blue
She Took His Name
And Left Him A Fool

Oh Lord...Listen To Me,
And Hear What I Say,
For Those Words,I Love You,
Are So Easy To Say,
But You Know,
They Don't Mean One Thing,
Unless You Say Them,
Each,Each And Every Day,
Cause The Cards That She's Holding,
Loves Hand That Is Played,
Can Easily Be Shuffled,
By That Woman Who Strays,
So Deal Me In A Winning Hand Lord,
Let Me Play At This Game,
And I'll Give You My Heart,
And I'll Give You My Name

He Was Just Blind
Now Daddy He's Blue
She Took His Name
And Left Him A Fool

AWWW...LISTEN HERE

NOW PAIN IS MORE PERSONAL
THEN GIVING YOUR NAME
THIS HEART THAT SHE'S BREAKING
IS NOT A CARD GAME
I LOVE YOU FOREVER
TIL DEATH DO WE PART
THRU SICKNESS AND HEALTH DEAR
I GIVE YOU MY HEART
MY EYES ARE WIDE OPEN
LORD I COULDN"T SEE
SHE TOOK MY NAME
LEFT ME MISERY

CAUSE, I WAS JUST BLIND
NOW DADDY I"M BLUE
WELL I WAS JUST BLIND
NOW DADDY I'M BLUE
LORD I WAS BLIND
NOW DADDY I"M BLUE
I WAS JUST BLIND
NOW DADDY I'M BLUE
SHE TOOK MY NAME
AND LEFT ME A FOOL

OH DADDY HE'S BLUE!

Written By: ROACH/FRANCHI

Hey,Hey,Hey

CONGREGATION

Written By: JUSTICE/JUSTICE

I'VE SPENT MY WHOLE LIFE SEARCHING,
SEARCHING FOR LOVE TO COME TO ME,
A LOVE THAT WON'T LEAVE ME HURTING,
BUT HURTING IS ALL I'VE EVER SEEN
A CONGREGATION WAS WAITING BEHIND ME,
A CONGREGATION THAT BRINGS ME TO MY KNEES,
A CONGREGATION THAT ALWAYS SEEMS TO FIND ME,
A CONGREGATION OF PAIN AND MISERY

TOO MANY NIGHTS BEEN PRAYING,
PRAYING FOR LOVE TO COME TO ME,
AND LOVE ME WITHOUT MY HEART BREAKING,
BUT HEARTBREAK IS ALL I'VE EVER SEEN,
THE CONGREGATION WAS WAITING BEHIND ME,
THE CONGREGATION THAT BRINGS ME TO MY KNEES,
THE CONGREGATION THAT ALWAYS SEEMS TO FIND ME,
THIS CONGREGATION OF PAIN AND MISERY

YOU SEE, I NEVER COULD FIND PLEASURE,
PLEASURE THAT MAKES ME BELIEVE,
BELIEVE THAT LOVE LASTS FOREVER,
FOREVER NEVER EVER CAME TO ME,
THIS CONGREGATION WAS WAITING BEHIND ME,
THIS CONGREGATION THAT BRINGS ME TO MY KNEES,
THIS CONGREGATION THAT ALWAYS SEEMED TO FIND ME,
THIS CONGREGATION OF PAIN AND MISERY

AND ONE DAY MY LIFE WILL BE OVER,
OVER AND I WILL BE FREE,
FREE TO NO LONGER SUFFER,
AND SUFFERING WON"T BE A PART OF ME,
THE CONGREGATION WILL BE WALKING BESIDE ME,
THE CONGREGATION WILL BE PRAYING ON THEIR KNEES,
A CONGREGATION OF MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY,
JUST CONGREGATING...TO SAY GOODBYE TO ME

CONGREGATION
CONGREGATION
CONGREGATION
CONGREGATION
CONGREGATION
CONGREGATING...TO SAY GOODBYE TO ME
