Lyrics From Greatest Hits


Step The Step

Mama told me when I was three
The street'll never get you no where
You take a street car jumpin' and back beat bump
And get along like it isn't there
You hold your head up high
Like you're gonna fly

You take the bitter 'til you find the sweet
And when you got that crowd and it's screamin' loud
You leave them sittin' on the edge of their seat

Chorus
You gotta step that step
Walk that walk
Shake that thing
Honey talk that talk

Hollywood, if New York could
Keep you babblin' 'til the break of day
No time to rest and you've got to feel blessed
'Cause you're gonna get it anyway
You start to wail and your face turns pale
You've got to pump it till your pistol pops
And as the eagle flew baby so will you
Cause you're climbin' all the way to the top

Repeat Chorus Six Times

Heart Don't Fall Now

Here she comes again, but me and you
We're gonna close the door
We won't her in, we're not gonna do it, like we've done before
Stay here with me, keep a steady beat
But not to loud, she might be listening

Chorus
Oh heart, don't fall now
If you do I might never bring you back around
Heart take it slow, don't let her know
Just how much we really need her now
Heart, don't fall now

She can break me down but she won't get through
If you'll be on your guard, when she reaches out
Oh, I'm counting on you, not to fall apart
Here comes that touch
We've been missing for such a long, long time
I feel you giving in

Chorus

You'll pull it off some how
This can be our finest hour
Ah, heart without you
I might not get through it
Don't know if I can do it

Repeat Chorus Three Times

Betty's Bein Bad

Betty's out bein' bad tonight
Betty and her boyfriend
They had a big fight
She found out
What everybody knew
Too many cooks spoil the stew
She don't care
What nobody thinks
She's gonna be bad
'til the whole town stinks

chorus
Betty's bein bad
Betty's bein bad
She's bein bad bad bad
She's out bein' bad
Betty's out bein' bad tonight
Betty and her boyfriend
They had a big fight

She went home when she found out
Said, "Pack your bags
I want you out"
Her boyfriend thought
She was talking jive
'til he saw her standing
With a .45
A .45's quicker than 409
Betty cleaned house
For the very last time

chorus
Betty's bein bad
Betty's bein bad
She's bein bad bad bad
She's out bein' bad
Betty's out bein' bad tonight
Betty and her boyfriend
They had a big fight

Now if you go out
And you see Betty
Don't scream and shout
Unless you are ready
You are ready to rock
Ready to roll
'til hell freezes over
And you catch a cold
Betty's not mad
She's just getting even
Betty's bein' bad
It's her way of leaving

The Race Is On

I feel tears wellin' up cold deep inside
like my heart's sprung a big break
and a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
that I may never shake

You might say that I was taking it hard
since you wrote me off with a call
But don't you wager that I'll hide in sarrow
when I may lay right down and bawl

Chorus
Now the race is on
and here comes pride in the backstreatch
Heartaches goin' to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
My hearts out of the runnin'
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches
and the winner looses all

One day I ventured in love
never once suspectin' what the final result would be
and how I lived in fear of waking up each morning
finding that you're gone from me
There's ache and pain in my heart
for today was the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win her
and I came out in second place

Chorus
Now the race is on
and here comes pride in the backstreatch
Heartaches goin' to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
My hearts out of the runnin'
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches
and the winner looses all

When Love Comes Callin'

You can look out the window but you can't see a thing
When the hound is howlin' and the wind won't sing
You can't run and you can't hide
When love comes callin' in the middle of the night

It won't bring no bags but you can bet
It'll wake you up screamin' in a cold, cold sweat
Ain't nothin' you can could do but hold on tight
When love comes callin' in the middle of the night

chorus
When love comes callin'
When love comes callin' in the middle of the night
Well in the middle of the night y'all

It don't leave no tracks, it don't wear no shoes
It can lift you up or it can sing the blues
It's faster than a bullet and the speed of light
When love comes callin' in the middle of the night

It don't need no doctor, it don't need the moon
It may come to late, it may come to soon
When the power is failed it can turn on the light
When love comes callin' in the middle of the night

chorus
When love comes callin'
When love comes callin' in the middle of the night
Well in the middle of the night y'all

There ain't nothin' you can do but hold on tight
When love comes callin' in the middle of the night
When love comes callin', when love comes callin'
When love comes callin', when love comes callin'
In the middle of the night
Well in the middle of the night
Well in the middle of the night y'all
Well in the middle of the night

Puttin' The Dark Back Into The Night

The neon moon was lookin' over her shoulder
She was sippin' wine and tellin' lots of tales
When the bar flies are off the wall,
It's hard to stand up straight and tall
When you're lookin' for someone to go your bail

chorus
She's puttin' the dark back into the night
She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
The future ain't lookin none too bright
So she's puttin' the dark, back into the night

She gave her hand to a man who was only a lover
His cheatin' drove her jealously insane
Now the light at the end of the tunnel for her
Is just a memory of the way we were
And the look in her eye say's she don't have to explain

chorus
She's puttin' the dark back into the night
She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
The future ain't lookin none too bright
So she's puttin' the dark, back into the night

bridge
You'll never know just what you'll do
When a broken heart comes from out of the blue
She's out on the run, she's ready to blow
She's out of her mind, she's los in' control

chorus
She's puttin' the dark back into the night
She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
The future ain't lookin none too bright
So she's puttin' the dark, back into the night

chorus
She's puttin' the dark back into the night
She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
The future ain't lookin none too bright
So she's puttin' the dark, back into the night

Out Goin'Cattin'

We still bop and our cars run hot
We're out cuttin' the fool
We're tearin' the town got the top laid down
Like we're back in school
I got a white sport coat and blue suede shoes
We're gonna find us a betty and a bobby sue

chorus
Well don't go tellin' don't go rattin'
Hey baby baby we're out goin' cattin'
Juke joint jammin' tit for tat
And mama don't wait up, wait up
We're out goin' cattin'
Oh yeah, out goin' cattin'
Oh yeah, out goin' cattin'

I got a chevy and we're in it
Gonna take it to the limit
Yeah we're lookin' fine
We'll take it to the hop
Maybe cruise the soda shop
Thinkin' back in time
Well don't say take it easy
Baby we're not through
I'm talkin oop bop a lou bop a lip bam boom
chorus
Well don't go tellin' don't go rattin'
Hey baby baby we're out goin' cattin'
Juke joint jammin' tit for tat
And mama don't wait up, wait up
We're out goin' cattin'
Oh yeah, out goin' cattin'
Oh yeah, out goin' cattin'
