"Human Condition" (1978)




Strut My Stuff lyrics - Canned Heat

Gee I’m feelin mighty mighty lonesome
Gee I’m feelin mighty mighty lonesome
I need her with me and I don’t know what I’m gonna do

She even told me right from the start
If I ever leave you Daddy gonna break your heart
Every time I think about it makes me feel so blue.

Well my baby she wrote me a note
And this was the answer that I wrote
Come on babe don’t sing the blues with me
I’m just as sweet as any man gonna be
She even told me right to me face
Any old man, yeah could take my place

I’m getting tired of my lowdown ways
I’m going back to my baby today
Come on Honey, please don’t bluff,
I wanna trip out tonight I wanna strut my stuff
I mean I wanna strut my stuff

House Of Blue Lights lyrics - Canned Heat

[scat]

Lace up your boots and we'll broom on down
To a knocked out shack on the edge of town
There's an eight beat combo that just don't quit
Keep walkin' 'til you see a blue light lit
Fall in there and we'll see some sights
At the house, the house of blue lights.

They got fryers, broilers, Detroit barbecue ribs
But the treat of the trade is when they serve you those fine eight beats
You'll want to spend the rest of your nights
Down at the house, the house of blue lights.

[scat]

Well, lace up your boots and we'll broom on down
To a knocked out shack on the edge of town
There's an eight beat combo that just don't quit
Keep walkin' 'til you see a blue light lit
Fall in there and we'll see some sights
At the house, the house of blue lights.

They got fryers, broilers, Detroit barbecue ribs
But the treat of the trade is when they serve you those fine eight beats
You'll want to spend the rest of your nights
Down at the house, the house of blue lights.

Human Condition lyrics - Canned Heat

Well it's a low down kinda condition
Been running round my brain
Says it may drive me insane

And every organism
That I can hear and see
Seems to have the blues with me

So I went to the doctor
Sat down on her bed
Looked up right at her
This is what she said

"You're in a human condition
That's what's got you down
Human condition
Your face is full of frowns
You've got to stand your ground"

"Well, you're sad, weak and weary"
She went on to say
"Nothing seems to go your way"

"And though you've tried and tried
You can't be satisfied
No-one seems to treat you right"

"But there's one thing for certain
That you ought to know
There's been lots of people
In that scene before"

"You're in a human condition
That's what's got you down
Human condition
Your face is full of frowns
You've got to stand your ground"

Well I stood up and I left her
And slowly walked away
Looking for a brighter day

And as I thought about it
A new thought came to me
Maybe we cannot be free

Well a whole lot of bad things
The world might throw at you
Stand up straight and strong
It's the only thing to do

You're in a human condition
That's what's got you down
Human condition
Your face is full of frowns
You've got to stand your ground

"The New Age" (1973)




You Can Run, But You Sure Can't Hide lyrics - Canned Heat

I can feel, Lord, the pain of a worried mind
That wants to run and hide
To stay or go, she sure just don’t know
You can run, but you sure can’t hide

I’ve made mistakes, but hell, I’m not alone
Hurts almost, almost everywhere
You know that old road of life, it’s just full of strife
You can run, but you sure can’t hide

Lord, when your life is all the time full of pain
Don’t you know that everyday, everyday of your life’s gonna bring about a change
You got to keep your head up high, keep your, keep your stomach dry
And I’ll tell you the sun, always follows the rain

[Instrumental – 2 verses]

When your life feels like it ain’t goin nowhere
You can only keep it together and know that everyday goin to bring about a change
Just walk straight, carry a big stick, then you’ll know why
There’s always a fine sun shiny day… after the rain

It’s said time will heal a broken heart
Sounds too good to be true
But to believe, Yeah I say to really believe and be satisfied
You can run, but you sure can’t hide

Well you think it’s all wrong, Lord baby you wrong
You can run, but you sure can’t hide.

Rock And Roll lyrics - Canned Heat

Now do you hear that rock'n'roll music,
Well it sure sounds good to me,
Round the world baby, 
This music can't be beat,
Well I see that we're goin' back,
Back to rockin' times of old,
Put on your rockin' shoes baby, 
Down the road we'll go,
Well that rollin' keeps me rockin',
Deep down in my shoes,
If you feel right your gonna stomp your feet,
To that good old rock'n'roll beat,
That good old rock'n'roll music,
Gets deep down in your soul,
Put on your rockin' shoes baby, 
Down the road we'll go.

[Music]

Well this rollin' keeps me rockin',
Lord deep down in my shoes,
If you feel right lord your gonna stomp your feet,
To that good old rock'n'roll beat,
Do you hear that rock'n'roll music,
Well it sure sounds good to me,
Well round the world baby,
Lord this music can't be beat.

Framed lyrics - Canned Heat

Well I was walkin' down the street 
Mindin' my own affairs 
When two policemen come up from behind 
And grab me unawares 
They said "You big bad Burton Cummings?" 
I said "Why sure!" 
They said "You're the cat we been lookin' for!" 
Well, I was framed. 
Framed, framed, framed I was blamed 
Framed, framed, framed 
Well I never do nothin' 
But I always get framed 
Well they took me to the lineup 
And let those bright lights shine 
There were 6 poor souls like me 
Standin' up there in that line 
The judge got a witness 
And got her way up on the witness stand 
A woman jump up, start screamin' 
"That's your man!" 
I was framed. 
Framed, framed, framed I was blamed 
Framed, framed, framed 
Well I never do nothin' 
But I always get framed 
Well the prosecutin' attorney started prosecutin' me 
Man, I mean that cat let loose and gave me the third degree 
He says "Where were you on the night of July 16th, 1963?" 
I said "I was cruisin'... just my sweetie and me..." 
I was framed. 
Framed, framed, framed I was blamed 
Framed, framed, framed 
Well I never do nothin' 
But I always get framed 
I get framed 
I get set up 
With circumstantial evidence 
Innocent bystander, stand by me 
I'm gon' need you

"One More River To Cross" (1973)




I'm A Hog For You, Baby lyrics - Canned Heat

Well I'm a hog for you baby
I can't get enough of your love
I'm a hog for you baby
I can't get enough of your love
When I go to sleep at night
You're the only thing I'm dreaming of

One little piggy went to London
One piggy went to Hong Kong
This little piggy's coming over your house
I'm gonna rock you all night long

Cos I'm a hog for you baby
I can't get enough of your love
When I go to sleep at night
You're the only thing I'm dreaming of

One little piggy ate a pizza
One piggy ate potato chips
This little piggy's coming over you house
I'm gonna lock up those sweet lips

Cos I'm a hog for you baby
I can't get enough of your love
When I go to sleep at night
You're the only thing I'm dreaming of

[Guitar Solo - 24 bars]

One little piggy went to London
One piggy went to Hong Kong
This little piggy's coming over your house
I'm gonna rock you all night long

Cos I'm a hog for you baby
I can't get enough of your love
When I go to sleep at night
You're the only thing I'm dreaming of
When I go to sleep at night
You're the only thing I'm dreaming of
When I go to sleep at night
You're the only thing I'm dreaming of

We Remember Fats (Fats Domino Medley) lyrics - Canned Heat

[I – Fat Man]

They call, they call me the fat man 
'cause I weigh two hundred pounds. 
All the girls do love me 
'cause I know my way around. 

I was standing, I was standing on the corner 
Of Rampart and Canal. 
I was watching, watching. 
Watching all Creole gals. 

I'm going, going, goin' away 
And I'm going, goin' to stay 
'cause women and bad life 
They're carryin' this soul away.

[II – I'm In Love Again]

Yes it's me and I'm in love again
Had no lovin' since you know when
You know I love you, yes I do
And I'm saving all my lovin' just for you
Need your lovin' and I need it bad
Just like a dog when he's goin' mad
Woo-ee baby, woo-oo-ee
Baby won't you give your love to me?
Eenie meenie and miney-mo
Told me you'd'n't want me around no more
Woo-ee baby, woo-oo-ee
Baby don't you let your dog bite me

Yes it's me and I'm in love again
Had no lovin' since you know when
You know I love, you yes I do
And I'm saving all my lovin' just for you
Eenie, meenie, and miney-mo
Told me you'd'n't want me around no more
Woo-ee baby, woo-oo-ee
Baby don't you let your dog bite me

[III – I'm Walkin']

I'm walking, yes, indeed 
I'm talking 'bout you and me 
I'm hoping that you'll come back to me 

I'm lonely as I can be 
I'm waiting for your company 
I'm hoping that you'll come back to me 

What're you gonna do when the well runs dry 
You're gonna run away and hide 
I'm gonna run right by your side 
For you pretty baby, I'd even die 

I'm walking ... 

I'm lonely ... 

What're you gonna do when the well runs dry 
You're gonna sit right down and cry 
What're you gonna do when I say "Bye-bye" 
All you're gonna do is dry your eyes 
I'm walking ...

[IV – Whole Lotta Loving]

I got a whole lotta lovin' for you
True true love for you
I got a whole lotta lovin' for you

A got a whole lotta (kiss, kiss) for you
A got a whole lotta (kiss, kiss) for you
I got a whole lotta kisses for you

A got a whole lotta (clap, clap) to do
A got a whole lotta (clap, clap) to do
And I'm so glad to see you

I got a whole lotta lovin' for you
True true love for you

A got a whole lotta (kiss, kiss) for you
A got a whole lotta (kiss, kiss) for you
I got a whole lotta kisses for you

A got a whole lotta (clap, clap) to do
A got a whole lotta (clap, clap) to do
Cause I'm so glad to see you

[V – Let The Four Winds Blow]

I like the way you walk
I like the way you talk
Let me hold your hand
Try to understand
I want a girl like you
Tell my love is true
Don't be afraid
You've heard what I said
Let the four winds blow
Let it blow and a-blow
From the east to the west
I love you the best
Let the four winds blow
Let it blow and a-blow
From the east to the west
I love you the best

I like the way you walk
I like the way you talk
Let me hold your hand
Try to understand
I want a girl like you
Tell my love is true
Don't be afraid
You've heard what I said
Let the four winds blow
Let it blow and a-blow
From the east to the west
I love you the best
Let the four winds blow
Let it blow and a-blow
From the east to the west
I love you the best

[VI – I'm Ready]

And I'm ready, I'm willing and I'm able to rock and roll all night. 
I'm ready, I'm willing and I'm able to rock and roll all night. 
Come on pretty baby, 
We're gonna rock, we're gonna roll until the broad daylight 

Because I'm ready, mmm, 
And I'm able, mmm. 
I'm willing and I'm able, 
So you'd better come and go with me. 
We're gonna rock and roll til tomorrow 'bout three. 

Talking on the phone is not my speed. 
Don't send me no letter, cause I can't read. 
Don't be long, cause I'll be gone. 
We'll go rock and rolling all night long. 

Cause I'm ready, I'm willing, and I'm able to rock and roll all night. 
I'm ready, I'm willing and I'm able to rock and roll all night. 
Come on pretty baby, 
We're gonna rock, we're gonna roll until tomorrow night. 

Talking on the phone is not my speed. 
Don't send me no letter, cause I can't read. 
Don't be long, cause I'll be gone. 
We'll go rock and rolling all night long. 

Cause I'm ready, I'm willing, and I'm able to rock and roll all night. 
I'm ready, I'm willing and I'm able to rock and roll all night. 
Come on pretty baby, 
We're gonna rock, we're gonna roll until tomorrow night

[VII – So Long]

So long, don't where I'm going 
But so long, you know you done me wrong 
So long, because I know I'm not the one 

Goodbye, please tell me why 
Goodbye, you always make me cry 
Oh why, why are you never satisfied 

[Instrumental] 

So long, I'm all packed up and on my way 
So long, you'll need me some ol' sunny day 
So long, yes I'm, I'm going to stay

"Live At Topanga Corral" (1971)




Sweet Sixteen lyrics - Canned Heat

How about it? How about it? It takes a lot of people to make it possible, 
So give 'em a big hand. Everybody is working to try to make it nicer. 
Anyway! As I leave you... a little bit of Sweet Sixteen for the guys - 
Just a taste - give me C for Sweet Sixteen... 
When I first met you baby, baby you were just sweet sixteen 
First met you baby, baby you was just sweet sixteen 
Just left your home then baby, oh the sweetest thing I'd ever seen 
But you wouldn't do nothing for me baby, you wouldn't do anything I asked you to 
You wouldn't do nothing for me baby, oh you wouldn't do anything I asked you to 
You know you ran away from your home baby, and now you wanna run away from old me too 
My brother's in Korea baby, my sister's down in New Orleans 
Brother's in Korea baby, oh sister sister down in New Orleans 
You know I'm having so much troubles people, baby I wonder what in the world is gonna happen to me 
Oh yes sweet sixteen baby... sweet sixteen... oh yes 
The sweetest thing baby, oh yes 
The sweetest thing I ever seen 
You know I'm having so much trouble people, baby I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to me 
Sweet sixteen... sweet sixteen oh yes 
You know I'm having so much trouble people 
Baby I wonder 
Yes I wonder 
Baby I wonder 
I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to me

I'd Rather Be The Devil lyrics - Canned Heat

I'd rather be the devil, to be that woman man
I'd rather be the devil, to be that woman man
Aw, nothin' but the devil, changed my baby's mind
Was nothin' but the devil, changed my baby's mind

I laid down last night, laid down last night
I laid down last night, tried to take my rest
My mind got to ramblin', like a wild geese
From the west, from the west

The woman I love, woman that I loved
Woman I loved, took her from my best friend
But he got lucky, stoled her back again
And he got lucky, stoled her back again

I Wish You Would lyrics - Canned Heat

Early in the morning, 'bout the break of day,
That's when my baby went away.
Come back, baby, I wish you would,
Try and love me, you won't do no good.

Walking and a-kissing late at night;
I tell you now baby, I feel just right.
Come now baby, whatcha trying to do?
Trying to love me and some other man, too.

Come now baby, give me one more chance.
You know I still love you, want to give you romance.
Yeah romance, all night long, in my arms, woah yeah.

Early in the morning, 'bout the break of day,
That's when my baby went away.
Come back, baby, I wish you would,
Try and love me, you won't do no good.

You know baby that I love you so.
You know, pretty baby, it hurts me to see you go.
Oh yeah, oh yeah.
