Lyrics

Once & Awhile

Written By: B.C. Read

1. Once & Awhile B.C. Read

She had a wonderful look on her face when she handed my a key
She said “I’ll see you later up at motel 3”
I started shaking and my mouth went dry
She just laughed and said “My oh my”
“You’re going to love it, just you what and see
You ain’t ever had a girl like me!!”

Chorus:
She was a go getter, she was the real deal
She wore a tight sweater; looking for a heart she could steal
She was a sweet talker and she said what she wants
She was a once every once and a while
The kind of woman I want

It was a quarter past one when I opened her door
All I could do was studier as she walked across the floor
You won’t believe what that woman put me through
All the rest I’m going to leave up to you
She said “I’m in to almost anything”
I wasn’t sure just were to begin.

Chorus:

When I woke up in the morning she was standing over me
She said “Well that was real fun baby, now give me my key”
I said “Ha baby can I see you again”
She said yes, but she didn’t say when
“You’re going to love it you wait and see
You ain’t ever had a girl like me”

Chorus:

I've Got News For You

I’ve Got News For You
B.C. Read

She left you standing on a low road
Said that she won’t be down no more
She told you about an old bow
She said that he won’t leave her down o-no
So you sat down & you cried
Felt like all your love had died
Seems like you could never love again
I’ve got news for you my friend

Chorus:
I’ve got news for you my friend
Broken hearts can sometimes mend
You may feel that it’s all come to an end
But I’ve got news for you my friend

Many years went rolling bye
Thought that you had found a new life
Then she came walking in
Said it’s nice to see you again
Then she sat down & cried
Felt that all her love had died
Said that she could never love again
I’ve got news for you my friend

Chorus

So if love just leaves you in the cold
All by yourself, just your soul to hold
Pick it up round the next bend
Take that road that leads you back again
Don’t you just sit and cry
Thinking love has passed you by
You know you can learn to love again
I’ve got news for you my friend

Chorus:
