Lyrics to this Doobie Bros. song

By wordworker ·
South City Midnight Lady:
"...I thought there was no reason
for all these things I do...
[but the smile...]

What the heck comes next? I googled it and came up with a number of different interpretations.

I think this is the right one

by Oz_Media In reply to Lyrics to this Doobie Bro ...

I saw a couple I thought were wrong but this one seems right, been a while since I played that 'record'. Ahhhhh vinyl!
From Lyrics Domain and they're usually pretty accurate.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Up all night I could not sleep
The whiskey that I drank was cheap
With shakin' hands I went and I lit up my last cigarette
Well the sun came, night had fled
And sleepy eyed I reached my bed
I saw you sleepy dreamin' there all covered and warm

South City midnight lady
I'm much obliged indeed
You sure have saved this man whose soul was in need
I thought there was no reason
For all these things I do
But the smile that sent out returned with you

When day has left the night behind
And shadows roll across my mind
I sometimes find myself alone out walkin' the street
Yes, and when I'm feelin' down and blue
Then all I do is think of you
And all my foolish problems seem to fade away

South City midnight lady
I'm much obliged indeed
You sure have saved this man whose soul was in need
I thought there was no reason
For all these things I do
But the smile that sent out returned with you

Thanks! The alternate was

DAMN!!!

Sir this would be better suited for the Technical Q&A forum. You will get beter responses and more of them. Don't forget to award the points as you will also get a 1000 point bonus for successfully closing the question.

If you continue to post inapproporiately, you will have you knuckles rapped, as a Canadian I am allowed to punish naughty children once again.

:-P

ROFLMAO! As I was writing it, I thought, "**** I have 40000 TechPoints, I might as well toss 1000 out for grabs to make it worth someone pulling out their old vinyl for the liner notes.

I am playing/singing this one as part of my one-man, saxophone-band show at the local nursing home.

Wow

by Oz_Media In reply to Keeling moi

Do you go all the way and put the cymbals between your knees with the bass drum on your back?

Just kidding, I'm sure they appreciate the music and it's a feel-good thing for you to do too, well done!

How do you do that?

by Oldefar In reply to Keeling moi

I mean sing while playing the sax? Or do you know another way?

trade secret

by wordworker In reply to How do you do that?

I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you. Actually it's easy - you play a little, sing a little, and then the audience yells "Play! For God's sake play!" Had an awakenings moment with a guy who hardly ever spoke. I played Yakety Sax (aka Theme from Benny Hill Show) and the guy yells out "Yakety Sax! Yakety Sax!" until I played it again, and again, and again... People are funny - at a certain age they start acting like little kids again. Well the lucky ones.

That's great Jeff

by Oz_Media In reply to trade secret

Really nice thing to do. One question I had whie reading your posts, you said:
"Actually it's easy - you play a little, sing a little, and then the audience yells "Play! For God's sake play!""

Now is this because you play sax well or because your singing sucks??

And yes, please play "Yakety Sax" again, I'll run around and rip womens clothes off."

As for adults becoming kids again, I agree, why even bother becoming an adult. They are boring, stuck up and as a whole, deadbeats. I refuse to be an adult ever since watching peter pan. Why bother, nobody likes 'adults' but they love kids and fun pensioners.

The singing....

by wordworker In reply to That's great Jeff

....sucks. What can I say.

After that day, though, that little old man started talking to me all the time. Around Christmastime he asked me if I had a gig for New Year. His son was a professional musician and he knew that holidays were big working nights for performers. The little ladies, now, they were big fans of my all-instrumental Amazing Grace.

Listen to the Music....

by TomSal In reply to Lyrics to this Doobie Bro ...

...Doobie Brothers good stuff!! :) My fav from them is Listen to the Music.

Although I don't own a single CD of them I have a mixed collection of their tunes.

Ok this was a shameless post to plug how I like their music.

Continue onward....
