Biography

Galetes Franklin is a band of Aretha Franklin’s covers... the show, of 2 hours, it’s formed by approximately 35 songs, which almost 40 years ago became very popular into the Memphis singer’s voice. With Galetes Franklin we play every Wednesday morning in COQUI’s house, the drummer, in CARDEDEU, 2 hours ...enough time to make a repertoire’s revision and speak about this pub or this disco will want that we go to play and if they will pay something to us. Sometimes, while we are playing, I think on an image that comes to my mind... I enter in a kind of mirror that reflects the opposite image and i visualize a set of four black men from Memphis, very tall, like basketball players, with two beautiful singers (also black too!) and with an average of age that overcomes the line of 30 years. They have the curious habit of meeting every Wednesday morning, at the time when common people are working, to revise - already they know it - the repertoire of, for example: M ª del Mar Bonet or Lluís Llach (catalan singers & songrwiters... I start to laugh ...the rest of the band look at me and think: " And this one, what is he laughs about? ... and I think: " we are all a little bit mad

Lyrics

Son of a preacher man

Written By: John Hurley-Ronnie Wilkins

Billy Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they gathered around and party talkin'
That's when Billy would take me walkin'
Through the back yard we'd go walkin'
Then he'd look into my eyes
Lord knows, to my surprise

The only one who could ever reach me (was the son of a preacher man)
The only boy who could ever teach me (was the son of a preacher man)
Yes, he was (aleluia)
Eeh, he was (aleluia)
Ooh, he was (aaaa-aleluia)

Bein' good isn't always easy
No matter how hard I try
When he started sweet-talkin' to me
He'd kiss and tell me 'Everything is all right' (suck it to me)
Baby baby, 'Everything is all right' (aaah, suck it to me)
Can I speak away again tonight, now?

The only one who could ever reach me (was the son of a preacher man)
I tell you that the only boy who could ever teach me (was the son of a preacher man)
Yes, he was (aleluia)
Eeh, he was (aleluia)
Ooh, he was (aaaaa)

Mmmmm …
How well I remember
The look that was in his eyes
Stealin' kisses from me on the sly
Takin' time to make time
Tellin' me that he's all mine
Learnin' from each other's knowin'
Lookin' to see how much we've grown and

The only one who could ever reach me (was the son of a preacher man)
I tell you that the only boy who could ever teach me (was the son of a preacher man)
Ooh yes, he was (aleluia)
Eeh, he was (aleluia)
Ooh, he was (aaaa-aleluia)

Aleluia (son of a preacher man, aleluia)
Aleluia, ooh the son now yeah (son of a preacher man, aleluia)
Aaaa-leluia, yeeah-heey (son of a preacher man, aleluia)
Ooh son now, aleluia, ooh the son now (son of a preacher man)
He's the only boy, yes it is, who could ever reach me (son of a preacher man)
He's the oooo-only boy who could ever teach me (son of a preacher man)

I say a little prayer

Written By: Burt Bacharach-Hal David

(I say a little prayer for you)
The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup (makeup)
I say a little (prayer for you)
And while combing my hair, now
And wondering what dress to wear, now (wear now)
I say a little (prayer for you)

Forever, ever (forever, and ever)
(you'll stay in my heart and I will love you)
Forever, ever (forever, and ever)
(we never will part oh, how I'll love you)
Together, together (together, together)
(that's how it must be to live without you)
(Would only be heartbreak for me)

Uuuh
I run for the bus, dear
But while riding I think of us, dear (us, dear)
I say a little (prayer for you)
And at work got just take time
And all through my coffee break-time (break-time)
I say a little (prayer for you)

Forever, ever (forever, and ever)
(you'll stay in my heart and I will love you)
Forever, ever (forever, and ever)
(we never will part oh, how I'll love you)
Together, together (together, together)
(that's how it must be to live without you)
(Would only be heartbreak for me)
Nobody but me
Ever, ever (forever, and ever)
(you'll stay in my heart and I will love you)
Forever, ever (forever, and ever)
(we never will part oh, how I'll love you)
Together, together (together, together)
(that's how it must be to live without you)
(Would only be heartbreak for me)

Uuuuuh,
My darling believe me (believe me)
For me there is no one but you
Please, love me to
I'm in love with you (dancin' my prayer)
Dancin' my prayer, baby (dancin' my prayer)
Say you love me to (dancin' my prayer)
Dancin' my prayer, baby (dancin' my prayer)

Rock Steady

Written By: Aretha Franklin

Rock steady, baby
That's what I feel now
Let's call the song exactly what it is
Just move your hips with a feeling from side to side
Sit yourself down in your car and take a ride
While you're moving, rock steady
Rock steady, baby

Let's call this song exactly what it is (What it is, what it is, what it is)
It's a funky and lowdown feeling (What it is)
In the hips from left to right (What it is)
What it is is I might be doin' (What it is)
This funky dance all night, aah! (Put your hands up in the air)
Aaaah! (Got a feelin' you ain't got a care)
Aah! (You gotta take this burn)
Aaaah! (That tear we all inside)

Rock steady, rock steady baby
Rock steady, rock steady baby

(INSTRUMENTAL)

Jump and move your hips with a feeling from side to side
Sit yourself down in your car and take a ride
While you're moving, rock steady
Rock steady

Let's call this song exactly what it is (What it is, what it is, what it is)
It's a funky and lowdown feeling (What it is)
In the hips from left to right (What it is)
What it is is I might be doin' (What it is)
This funky dance all night, aah! (Put your hands up in the air)
Aaaah! (Got a feelin' you ain't got a care)
Aah! (You gotta take this burn)
Aaaah! (That tear we all inside)

Rock steady baby, rock steady, uuh
Rock steady

(INSTRUMENTAL)

(Rock, steady, rock, steady, what it is)
Let's call this song exactly what it is (What it is, what it is, what it is)
It's a funky and lowdown feeling (What it is)
In the hips from left to right (What it is)
What it is is I might be doin' (What it is)
This funky dance all night, aah! (Put your hands up in the air)
Aaaah! (Got a feelin' you ain't got a care)

Ain't nobody (Gonna turn me around)

Written By: Carolyn Franklin

Ain't nobody gonna turn me around no more
Ain't nobody gonna turn me around
Well I've learned my lesson and now I've seen
Love ain't the thing-ing for me
Ain't nobody gonna turn me around
Turn me around - turn me around - turn me around

Ain't nobody gonna talk sweet talk with me
Ain't nobody gonna tell me how sweet love can be
I'm gonna take my lovin' put it on the shelf
Ain't gonna give it to nobody else
Ain't nobody, who's gonna turn me around
Turn me around - turn me around - turn me around

Love, you've been so doggone mean
You sho' hurt everyone-a my dreams
And you know I can't love nobody else
But still you left me here all by myself
Turn me around - ya turn me around
Ya turn me around - ya turn me around

I learned my lesson and now I see
Love ain't the thing for me
Ain't nobody, any fool's gonna turn me around
Turn me around - turn me around - turn me around

Go on, you been so doggone mean
Go on, you shatter everyone-a my dreams
You turn me around, stone around
Ya turn me around, stone around
You turn me around

(You make me feel like) A natural woman

Written By: Carole King-Jerry Wexler

Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel so uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired
Before the day I met you, my life was so unkind
But you're the key to my peace of mind

'Cause you make me feel, you make me feel,
you make me feel like a natural woman

When my soul was in the lost-and-found
You came along to claim it
I didn't know just what was wrong with me
Till your kiss helped me name it
Now I'm no longer doubtful of what I'm living for
and if I make you happy I don't need to do more

'Cause you make me feel, you make me feel,
you make me feel like a natural woman

Oh, baby, what you've done to me
You make me feel so good inside
And I just want to be
close to you, you make me feel so alive

you make me feel, you make me feel,
you make me feel like a natural woman
you make me feel, you make me feel,
you make me feel like a natural woman
you make me feel, you make me feel,
you make me feel like a natural woman
