Lyrics

Sweet Talk (no audio) slow blues

Written By: Rochelle Raya/Vallerie Barry

If you want yourself a good woman
Baby take my advice 2x
If you want your girl to stick around
Oh you better learn
How to treat her right

Sweet talk her in the morning
You better sweet talk that girl
Through the night, every night
Sweet talk that woman in the morning
You better sweet talk her
Morning, noon and night
If you want your girl to stick around
Oh you better learn
How to treat her right

If you want your girl to stick around
Oh you better learn
How to sweet talk your woman
Every night

Movin' On (audio)

Written By: Nancy Dalessandro

I'm movin' on
Gotta quit looking back
I'm movin' on
Gotta quit looking back
It's a long, long journey
Hope I choose the right road
Such a long, long journey
Yes, I hope I choose the right road
Sometimes I may get lost
Trying to see beyond
I may get lost
Trying to see beyond

There's a fire burning
And the wheels keep turning
And the journey's for learning
Yes the journey's for learning
You got to try take somebody along
Take someone along

Got to take a deep breath
And free up my mind
Got to take a deep breath
And free up my mind

Know I can soar
With the wind in my face
Know I can soar
With the wind in my face

Got to get some fresh air
I know I will revive
Got to get some fresh air
I know I will revive

There's a fire burning
And the wheels keep turning
Wheels keep turning
And the journey's for learning
Yes the journey's for learning
You got to try take somebody along

Come on, come on

Come on and go with me yeah....

You can't bring me down...

'Cause I'm running, running
Striving, striving
Movin', movin
Groovin, groovin

Come on and go with me yeah....
