Cherry Red
Big Joe Turner Lyrics

Run here pretty mama
Get down on your daddy's knee
I want to tell everybody
How you've been sending me

Well if that's your little secret
You better keep it to yourself
'Cause if you tell me
I might tell somebody else
I ain't never loved
And I hope I never will
'Cause a lovin' proposition
Gonna get somebody killed

If you could take me pretty mama
Jump me in your big brass bed

I want you to, you can rock me baby
Till my face turns cherry red, cherry red

You got red, red big legs
That you build up from the ground

She's a tailor-made woman
Ain't none of those hand-me-downs

I said bye, bye-bye baby
Bye-bye, baby, bye
Bye-bye baby
Good bye-bye, bye-bye

That album is one of THE greatest ever. Every track on it is perfect.

Bob Aldo

Ain't that the truth!


HUGE voice. Incredible sense of time..swings like crazy..I wish I could go back in time and check out the KC scene he came from. Bennie Moten, Count Basie, Big Joe Turner, Pete Johnson..that's enough right there to send me to the moon..
