To the girls in Frisco

To the girls in New York

To the girls in Texarcan

You gotta understand

That, baby, I'm your man.

That, baby, I'm your man.

Here's another verse:

From Atlanta, Georgia

To The Gulf Stream water

I'm gonna spend my life

Both night and day.

Something like "Give me give me good loving?" No idea who the artist is, though.

That's close enough for me.

It's Gimme Gimme Good Lovin' by Crazy Elephant.

HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa(That's part of the song.)

Pour me a cold one and oh, by the way

Rub my feet, gimme something to eat

Good guess, but incorrect.

Don't know who all may have recorded this. I'm familiar with it from a female country singer.

This reminds me of Shania (sp?) Twain for some reason . . .

can't say that I know the tune, but I'll make a guess;

Had a bad day?

It is Shania Twain. From the title, you'd expect a man to be singing it, that's what made me chuckle so hearing the lyrics from the woman's point of view. Here's the lyrics. Bet you can guess the title from them.

The car won't start-it's falling apart

I was late for work and the boss got smart

My pantyline shows-got a run in my hose

My hair went flat-man, I hate that

Just when I thought things couldn't get worse

I realized I forgot my purse

With all this stress-I must confess

This could be worse than PMS

This job ain't worth the pay

Can't wait 'til the end of the day

Honey, I'm on my way

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Honey, I'm home and I had a hard day

Pour me a cold one and oh, by the way

Rub my feet, gimme something to eat

Fix me up my favorite treat

Honey, I'm back, my head's killing me

I need to relax and watch TV

Get off the phone-give the dog a bone

Hey! Hey! Honey, I'm home!

I broke a nail opening the mail

I cursed out loud 'cause it hurt like hell

This job's a pain-it's so mundane

It sure don't stimulate my brain

This job ain't worth the pay

Can't wait 'til the end of the day

Honey, I'm on my way

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Honey, I'm home and I had a hard day

Pour me a cold one and oh, by the way

Rub my feet, gimme something to eat

Fix me up my favorite treat

Honey, I'm back, my head's killing me

I need to relax and watch TV

Get off the phone-give the dog a bone

Hey! Hey! Honey, I'm home!

Oh, rub my neck will you

Honey, I'm home and I had a hard day

Pour me a cold one and oh, by the way

Rub my feet, gimme something to eat

Fix me up my favorite treat

Honey, I'm back, my head's killing me

I need to relax and watch TV

Get off the phone-give the dog a bone

Hey! Hey! Honey, I'm home!

I'm home, that feels much better

Was my guess right then? Just in case it was. . .

new tune:

You jump in front of my car when you, you know all the time

Title is actually, "Honey, I'm Home". As no one guessed it, I'm glad to posted new lyrics. Not familiar to me, though, Wing. Sure someone else can guess it.

Thanks, PurpleDays.

I was kinda hoping you'd get it, though, seeing as how your new name sort of led me back to this artist's work. . .

You jump in front of my car when you, you know all the time

that ninety miles an hour girl, is the speed I drive,

you tell me it's alright, you don't mind a little pain. . .

New Tune:

When I smile, tell me some bad news

Before I laugh, act like a fool

Dang!!

Stumped again!

Waysider:

I'm kinda surprised

I thought this was a gimme...

Some people I know argue that this is the best song ever (which I don't agree with)

And one of the best lead guitarists ever (which I do agree with).

Perhaps some advice for us twi survivors:

"Jump up, look around, find yourself some fun,

no sense in sitting there hating everyone.

No man's an island and his castle isn't home,

the nest is for nothing when the bird has flown.''

The artist is Jethro Tull, but I don't know the name of the song,

even though I've mulled it over for a day.

I know it was quite a popular song, and I've got the melody and some of the lyrics,

but I just can't grasp the lyrics that would tell me the name.

And then I think, I have never known the name of this song.

So, the artist is as far as I can take it.
