Don’t Get It Twisted

DON’T GET IT TWISTED

Life can be sweet; life can be insane.
But Mama used to say, don’t never hook up with, a “Gambling Man.”
Because he’ll tell you that he loves you, he’ll tell you that he cares.
When you look around, he’s nowhere to be found.
Because he marches to a different drummer, he marches to a different plan.
Because he follows the games, everywhere.
The next thing you know, you’re in love with, a “Gambling Man.”
So, just look around, and you will see.
There is no future with loving, a “Gambling Man.”
He’ll leave you in a minute, he’ll leave you at the sound – of the dice rolling, cards shuffling, roulette wheel spinning, slot machines ringing.
He loves that crazy sound, cuz he’s, a “Gambling Man.”
So, don’t get it twisted, and you will see, there is no future in loving – a “Gambling Man.”

Most of All

MOST OF ALL

I have your picture hanging on the wall, there comes a time when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
On cloudy days and rain starts to fall, that’s when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
When the wind blows through the trees, birds and bees bow there heads in sympathy.
That’s when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t stop, and look at your picture, and gaze into those big brown eyes.
That’s when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
On holidays when the sun refused to shine, that’s when I really miss you – MOST OF ALL.
