I. Backdoor Love Affair

Got to have you, baby, even
Though you say that you don't care
Got to have you, baby, even
Though you say that you don't care
Any way you want it
Settle for a backdoor love affair

II. Mellow Down Easy

Jump, jump here, jump, jump there
Jump, jump, baby, everywhere
Don't you mellow down easy
Babe, you got to mellow down easy
Don't you mellow down easy
Got to mellow down easy
Don't you mellow down easy
Got to mellow down easy, babe
Don't you mellow down easy
Got to mellow down easy
Don't you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top

Shake, shake here, shake, shake there
Shake, shake, baby, everywhere
Don't you mellow down easy
Babe, you got to mellow down easy
Don't you mellow down easy
Got to mellow down easy
Don't you mellow down easy
Got to mellow down easy, babe
Don't you mellow down easy
Got to mellow down easy
Don't you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top

Shake, shake here, shake, shake there
Shake, shake, baby, everywhere
Don't you mellow down easy
Babe, you got to mellow down easy
Don't you mellow down easy
Got to mellow down easy
Don't you mellow down easy
Got to mellow down easy, babe
Don't you mellow down easy
Got to mellow down easy
Don't you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top

Baby baby baby baby, don't you want a man like me?
Uh-huh uh-huh, yes I do, yes I do

IV. Long Distance Boogie

Is everybody feelin' good? you makin' us feel good, too
Now, early this morning I got on that long distance telephone
And I called my mama
I said, 'mama, this is your boy, and I'm way down here in
New Orleans, Louisiana'
And she said, 'that's all right, boy'
And she turned to my papa and she said
'Papa, our boy's way down there in New Orleans
We cannot let him stay out all night long'
She did
Long about that time, I heard my papa lean toward my mama
I heard papa tell mama, 'let that boy boogie-woogie'
He said, 'it's in him and it's got to come out'

So I went downtown
There's a lot of people there
They was-a really havin' a ball
And I felt so good
Yes, I felt so good
Yes, I felt so good
Yes, I felt so good
Yes, I felt so good
Yes, I felt so good
Yes, I felt so good

Boogie, children
