Songtekst

AMEN:

Amen, uh
Amen, uh
Amen, amen, amen, with the horns now
Amen, with the rhythm now
Amen, amen
Amen, amen, amen, everybody now
Amen, amen
Amen, amen, amen, huh, let me tell you

This little life of mine
I'm gonna let it shine
This little life of mine
I'm gonna let it shine, yeah yeah
This little life of mine
I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine
To show my love

One thing my papa used to say, he said that

Even in my home son, I said what dad
I'm gonna let it shine, let me tell you
Said even in your home, son
You've got to let your little light shine, yeah huh
Even in your home, son, ha
You've got to let it shine
Just let it shine, just let it shine
To show your love

And then I said: daddy, help me sing this line one time

Amen, will you help me
Amen, huh, with a feeling
Amen, amen, amen, everybody together now
Amen, little louder now
Amen, everybody say
Amen, amen, amen

Amen

HARD TO HANDLE:

Baby, here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you got to go home with me

I forgot some good old lovin'
And I got some in store
When I get through throwing it on you
You got to come back for more

Boys and things that come by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drug store lovin'
Hey little thing, let me light your candle'
Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, yes sir, I am

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man with a great experience
I know you got you another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand, don't be afraid
I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertisin' love for free
So won't you place your ad with me

Boys will come a dime by the dozen
But that ain't nothin' but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing, let me light your candle'
Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, yes sir, I am

Baby, here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
Just come, go home with me

I forgot some good old lovin'
And I got it there in store
When I get through throwing it on you
You got to come back for more

Boys will come a dime by the dozen
But that ain't nothin' but drug store love
Pretty little thing let me light the candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, yes sir, I am

Give it to me
I've got to have it
Gimme some good old lovin'
Some of your good lovin'
I'm a big old man, mama
But I'm too hard to handle
