BANG THE SKILLET

Well, she bang the skillet on my head tonight and I was hurtin'
She made me sad for I know not what I do
Before she makes me cry and makes me sleep outside
I got to know why, tell me why

Now if I rest my head on a pillow tonight I will be happy
If he rests his head on a pillow tonight he will be cool
So, why you make me cry and make me sleep outside
I got to know why, tell me why

Bang the skillet, bang the skillet tonight

I ask what's cooking in your pot, I get the pan handle
And if I ask you to stop, I get the end of a broom
Oh, what makes your blood run hot, so high, to make you get out the pot and hit me no reason why
Tell me why, I got to know why

Well, she bang the skillet on my head tonight and I was hurtin'
She made me sad for I know not what I do
So, why you make me cry and make me sleep outside
I got to know why, tell me why, please tell me why

Bang the skillet, bang the skillet tonight
Bang the skillet, bang the skillet tonight
Bang the skillet, bang the skillet tonight
Bang the skillet, bang the skillet tonight

SUNDAY MORNING

Walkin', 'til sun come up on Sunday mornin'
Long time I seen ya so glad you seen me walkin'
Cross the tracks down to the beach
If I had known you's in town I would've set a date
But it's better this way that we meet again by fate

Walkin', 'til sun come up on Sunday mornin'
Long, long lonely time since I've seen ya
Come in like the south winds at night
I hope you won't be leavin', cause surely I'd be grievin'
Yes, we're takin' our time, takin' our time,
There is no rush now, takin' our time

Walkin', 'til sun come up on Sunday mornin'
Long time I seen ya so glad you seen me walkin'
Cross the tracks down to the beach
If I had known you's in town I would've set a date
But it's better this way that we meet again by fate

Walkin', 'til sun come up on Sunday mornin'
Talkin', foolin' 'round...Sunday mornin'

As we walk hand in hand, side by side
Yes, we takin' our time, takin' our time,
There is no rush now, takin' our time,
Takin' our time, takin' our time.

TIN PENNY

There's a tin penny for the man
Who keeps the dance movin', movin', groovin'
He sets the mood for the swingin' tonight, alright
And the mood it is so right

He says I know my soul is worth it's weight in gold
And he can't be bought or sold

Just one tin penny for the man
Who is the first one there and the last one to go
He begins his journey back to his home
And it's a long, long and lonely road

He says I know my soul is worth it's weight in gold
And he can't be bought or sold

There's a tin penny for the man
Who keeps the dance movin', movin', groovin'
He sets the mood for the swingin' tonight, alright

And we thank, we thank, him so
And we thank, we thank, him so...yes we do
And we thank, we thank, him so

MISS ARGENTINA

I wrote my letter to Argentina today
And it made me sad that she's so far away
But I'm looking forward to the day I save some time
So I can see her before I lose my mind

Miss Argentina, I'd like to know
When will I see her, my heart cries out so

Left you at the Greyhound station just the other day
And it made me sad as I watched you walk away
That day at work you were the only thing on my mind
The way you smiled when you sung your Spanish rhyme

Miss Argentina, I'd like to know
When will I see her, my heart cries out so
Miss Argentina, I'd really like to know
When will I see her, this here heart cries out so

I wrote my letter to Argentina today
And it made me sad that she's so far away
The suddeness of her smile and how she looks so sweet
She's wrapped up in my soul, there is where she'll always be

Miss Argentina, I'd like to know
When will I see her, my heart cries out so
Miss Argentina, I'd really like to know
When will I see her, this here heart cries out so

PLANTATION

My love for you, girl, is one of a kind
And if you don't believe me, you're way out of line
So give me that chance to prove my love
So give me that chance to prove my love

I will do everything for you to make you mine
I will do everything for you to have you 'til the end of time

Words can't express the way that I feel
There's no need to wonder the feelings are real
So give me that chance to prove my love
So give me that chance to prove my love

Yes, I will do everything for you to make you mine
And I will do everything for you to have you 'til the end of time

And I will do everything for you have you 'til the end of time
Yes, I will do everything for you to make you mine
And I will do everything for you to have you 'til the end of time

PRESSURE HOUSE

Down the old road there's a place that I know so well
Dusty old shack where old cats plan attack upon you, you and you

Records spinning 'round, day and night
Gonna feel right
Make you jump and move
Get your body move to this Island Sound
Swing and sway to the Sound today

Word on the street there's a party tonight, I hear
I drive so long just to hear those sweet songs again

Records spinning 'round, day and night
Gonna feel right
Make you jump and move
Get your body move to this Island Sound
Swing and sway to the Sound today

Look in my eye, oh, and you will see
The places I've been, the good people I meet
There you'll envision it stands as one
The Pressure House welcomes all that come

Records spinning 'round, day and night
Gonna feel right
Make you jump and move
Get your body move to this Island Sound
Swing and sway to the Sound today
