Track Name: My Four Reasons
You know I hate a gal who’s full of “Nos”, hits the junk and uses joe
Why that’s one of my four reasons

Who rolls her own below her knees, and flirts with those who she please
Why that’s two of my four reasons

And when she uses garlic, eats Limburger cheese
Why I get a weakness down below my knees

Now folks I told you this, my mind’s at ease
Why that’s all of my four reasons
Track Name: Take A Look At That Baby

so what do I care, what somebody says

Track Name: You Was Born To Die
Don't want no woman

Stay out in the street
And like a badfoot clown
You made me love you
And you made me cry

You should remember, that you were born to die...

The stream are yellow
Tossed it black and brown

Used to be the woman in town
You made me love you
And you made me cry

You should remember, that you were born to die...

I'm home at morning
Face full of frown
I know about that baby
You been running around
You made me love you
And you made me cry

You should remember, that you were born to die...

You go to your man
You made me love you
And you made me cry

You should remember, that you were born to die...

Good Lord oh when you get to Memphis you won't find me there

And each one will do their best

Track Name: Adam & Eve
When Adam and Eve was in the Garden of Eden
They musta shook that thing
Well the leaves started fallin'
The snake started crawlin'
He musta give her a diamond ring
Adam said to Eve you just won't wait
'Til I get out of this garden gate
When Adam and Eve was in the Garden of Eden
They musta shook that thing

When Adam and Eve was in the Garden of Eden
They musta shook that thing
Well the leaves started fallin'
The snake start to crawlin'
He musta give her a diamond ring
Eve said to Adam if you care for me
You will eat this fruit from the forbidden tree
When Adam and Eve was in the Garden of Eden
They musta shook that thing

When Adam and Eve was in the Garden of Eden
They musta shook that thing
Well the leaves started fallin'
The snake started crawlin'
He musta give her a diamond ring
Eve said to Adam sleep in the crib
Adam said to Eve I'll give ya a piece of my rib
When Adam and Eve was in the Garden of Eden
Surely musta shook that thing

When Adam and Eve was in the Garden of Eden
They musta shook that thing
Well the leaves started fallin'
The snake started crawlin'
He musta give her a diamond ring
They one named Abel another named Kane

When Adam and Eve was in the Garden of Eden
Surely musta shook that thing
well oh yeah
Surely musta shook that thing
Track Name: Egyptian Ella
So if you hear of a gal who can quake and shake
Till it makes you think of a nervous snake
They're speakin' of Egyptian Ella

She weighs two-twenty but that's O.K.
They like 'em plenty down there that way
She has the love of every fella

And when she shakes and when she starts
Down by the River Nile
The boys all take their old sweet-hearts
And throw them to the crocodiles

And every sheik in the audience
Jumps up and yells that "She's immense!"
They're cheering for Egyptian Ella.
Track Name: Lazy River
I've been through all day, just walking here on borrowed ground.
I've looked beneath the daisies, my pal could not be found
She's down the lazy river, & I'm just lost from you
That's the only place between heaven and earth
that I long to get

When I find that river, that lazy, lazy river
Then my life will be complete
I searched the whole world over, I've slept out on the clover
Hoping that the (?rest?) might see

I searched beneath the daisies, and looked up in the moon
I followed every rainbow, and I hope to be there soon

So when I find that river, that lazy, lazy river
Then I'm coming home for you
