Lyrics

Little bit o lovin

Written By: Mark Thompson

lookin for some love on a saturday night gonna find my baby gonna hold her tight
give that girl such a thrill, she gonna follow my tailights over the hill
If your lookin for a woman to hold real tight, you'll find a little bit o lovin on a saturday night.
some girls do and some girls don't, some girls will and some girls won't
some girls like to hang around, some girls want to leave this town.
If your looking for a woman to hold real tight , bet you find a little bit o lovin on a saturday night.
Now you found your girl so fine, she's about to blow your mind.
Take you to the highest cloud, make you wanna scream outloud,
lookin for a woman you could hold real tight,
youfound a little bit of lovin on a saturday night.

You and me

Written By: Mark Thompson

I was thinkin bout you and me
maybe we could make a history
we could make some plans then you'd see
I was thinkin bout you and me

We could take our lives way out west
go to where the weather's the best
take our love and put it to the test
go to where the weather's the best

We could take some time just pretend
aint no need to start all over again
we could come back who knows when
I was thinkin bout you and me
I was thinkin bout you and me
I was thinkin bout you and me
I was thinkin bout you and me
We could take some time just pretend
ther aint no need to start all over again
we could come back who knows when
I was thinkin bout you and me
I was thinkin bout you and me
I was thinkin bout you and me
I was thinkin bout you and me

Good man

Written By: Mark Thompson

Well a good man can't fall down
when he's already on his knees
and I'm wearin that same old frow
from a lover that used to be
and I've traveled half my life
and I've been from town to town
no matter how I try
I can't put the needle down

Well a good man he won't lie
and a good man he'll stand high
but a good man can't fall down
when he's already on his knees

The savage in my life
love to take me down
she rips me like a knife
and leaves a thorny crown
well you can't imagine why
less you wear my shoes around
these lonely dirty streets
in this beat up part of town

well a good man he won't lie
and a good man he'll stand high
and a good man he won't die

but a good man can't fall down
when he's already on his knees
no a good man can't fall down
when he's already on his knees
