Love the lyrics to Mixed-up Girl by Thelma Houston from the 1969 Sunflower lp :lol:

"Gonna set you free my angel though I can make you stay

could've used my blind self-pity and thrown it in your way, but the tide has turned between us

and you'll never see the light, but it makes no bit of difference who is wrong or who is right"

Just about every line from "Cashin' In"

however modified for Soul-Sourcers I choose this one

"When I found you had opened my record box, that was the last straw, I can't take it no more"

...Writing all the bad cheques you can't cover, but slow down cos the money's gittin tight! :rolleyes:

oh and...

"...I had my eyes wide open from the start, and girl you never lied to me and the part they'll never never see is the part that you showed me... its the part that you showed me..." Four Tops - Do What You Gotta Do. Tho' would it have sounded the same without Levi's glorious vocals...?

Possible contender for best song title "Ain't Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman) - Joe Tex

TOO LATE- WILLIAMS AND WATSON. top tune, you beat me to that one, my favourite bit is

"dont need know woman to help me starve to death-"

Better with it all.

..."Anyway, I can live cheaper by myself, dont need no woman to help me starve to death"...

Not lovey dovey.. does just what it says on the tin... its pure class but please dont tell the wife!!

Yep this is a brill thread, hope it goes on for ages. There are loads of brilliant lines to be used

She was so beautiful, like flowers full bloom in May

Her kiss was like the roaring wind, it left me speachless, nothing to say...

I loved and I lost

It always gets me - to think if someone wrote that about me how chuffed I would feel. Fabulous.

(I hope I got the lyrics right as it wouldn't be the first time I was singing the wrong words!)

If you listen to "Mr Soul Satisfaction" by the legend that is Mr Timmy Willis, is what we ever wanted to be to the girls,in fact he's so bad he should've been born twins,

But I can't stop now got to find her somehow....

An actor's life is not for me, but I play the part so well,

though my heart is broken down inside, no one can ever tell,

they look at me, but they don't see this sad but lonely clown (now baby),

if they took a closer look, they'd see the smile was upside down,

if they could turn me over, their gonna see,

there's really two sides of me,

and I hurt all on the other side.........

Sheer poetry!

Ian D :unsure:

Written by Sidney Barnes and co help (JJ Jackson?), my favourite record ever, and it also promoted the next stage, ie from Torch to Casino, it was the missing link between the two that kept the scene moving forward (imo).

Wonder what records do that nowadays, food for thought perhaps.

Wrote to perfection from start to finish,

 

(A man aint born to life, just to die one day, just to turn to dust & be blown away, 

Don`t let the world beat you, Don't throw down your hopes & run,

for no matter how grey the sky is today you had your place in the sun,

A man`s much more than a grain of sand,)
