“So Low Down” lyrics

Posted in 13 with tags , , , on June 15, 2015 by J.J.

“So Low Down” (Lester Butler), from “13 featuring Lester Butler”

13

Here come baby, she’s so down
She been ballin’ in my town
So low down, my baby’s so low down

Sleep all day, out all night
Lowdown woman feel all right
So low down, my baby’s so low down
She’s sleepin’ in the ground …

My baby so low down

(harp solo)

Down on Union (unintelligible)
Babe I know just what to do
You’re so low down
My baby’s so low down
She’s sleepin’ in the ground …

My baby’s so low down!

My baby’s so low down
She’s sleepin’ in the ground
She’s just like wine and brown
And I can’t put her down
My baby’s so low down

(harp solo out)

Lyrics: “She’s Dangerous” at Pink Pop 1993

Posted in red devils with tags , , , , on February 8, 2014 by J.J.

Here’s a different take on the story “’bout a girl I know and my best friend.”

The live version of “She’s Dangerous” is an insistent rocker, much more aggressive than the stop-time swagger of the definitive “King King” version. In concert, Lester Butler plays with the lyrics, an ever-shifting narrative of who is catching who — and who is getting hit with a baseball bat. This Pink Pop 1993 version is such an example, although there are a couple of lines that we can’t make heads or tails of — then again, Butler probably couldn’t, either. (More after the jump …) Continue reading

“Way Down South” (Lester Butler), from “13 featuring Lester Butler”

Baby you hot and I just can’t stand it
I got the high temperature
Baby you hot and i just can’t stand it
I got the high temperature
Love like a drug and it give me fever
Mama there ain’t no cure

Baby come from way down south
Way on down behind the sun
Baby come from way down south
Way on down behind the sun
You look so good that I gotta be a man
Baby got to have your fun

(guitar solo)

Oh yeah, way on down in New Orleans
Yeah baby, way on down in New Orleans
You look so good that I just can’t stand it
I got a trick that’s gonna make you scream

(harp solo)

“Black Hearted Woman” (Lester Butler), from “13 featuring Lester Butler”

Well all right all right
Black hearted woman
Worst thing I’ve seen
She stole my friend Lonnie
Yeah, life should have been a dream

Well all right all right

(harp solo)

Al right all right
You walked through the fire
You came back from the dead
Black hearted woman
Went and pulled him back again
Went and pulled him back again
Went and pulled him back again

(harp & guitar solos out)

“Boogie Disease” lyrics

Posted in 13 with tags , , , , on October 13, 2011 by J.J.

“Boogie Disease” (Dr. Isaiah Ross), from “13 featuring Lester Butler”

Got to boogie for the doctor
Got to boogie for the nurse
Got to keep on boogie’n ’til they throw me in a hearse

Got to boogie
Got to boogie
‘Til the break of dawn

Got to boogie in the alley
Gonna boogie in the street
Got to keep on boogie’n ’til it knock me off my feet

Got to boogie
I got the boogie
Got the boogie disease
