LIQUID LUNCH: Blues Inspired Poetry by Stephen Bess

Spoonful of Lovin'


Just a spoonful of your lovin’ would do me right
Just a spoonful of your lovin’ would do me right

I’d settle for just a little bit
If I can’t have you for the full night

Your daddy told me I should run along
But deep in my arms is where you belong

Your momma said I was a no good cheat
But a moment with you would make my life complete

Please, please little baby
Run away with me

And I’ll show you just how sweet
life could really be

Please, please little baby
Don’t say no

‘Cause it’s my own life I’d take
if you told me so

Just a spoonful of your lovin’ would do me right
Just a spoonful of your lovin’ would do me right

I’d settle for just a little bit
If I can’t have you for the rest of my life
