Feeling Alright
David Ruffin Lyrics


Seems I've got to have a change of scene
'Cause every, every, every night I have the strangest dream
Imprisoned by the way it could have been
Left here on my own or so it seems
I've got to leave before I start to scream
I heard someone locked the door and threw away the key

Are you feeling alright?
I'm not feeling too good, too good myself
Are you feeling alright? Are you feeling alright?
Alright, I'm not feeling too good, too good myself
Are you feeling alright?

Well boy, you took me, you took me for a ride
And even now I sit and wonder, I wonder why
That when I think of you, I start to cry
I just can't be wasting my time, I gotta keep trying
Gotta stop believing, believing in all your lies
'Cause I got a lot of living to do before I lay down to die

Are you feeling alright? Alright
I'm not feeling too good, too good myself
Are you feeling alright? Alright, are you feeling alright?
I'm not feeling too good, too good myself
Are you feeling alright? Oh yeah

Well, well, well, well
Do it again

Don't get too lost, too lost in all I say
Though at times I really thought that I felt that way
But that was then, now it's today
I just can't get out so I think I'm, I'm here to stay
Till someone comes along and takes my place
With a different name, and by the way a different face

Are you feeling alright? Are you feeling alright?
I'm not feeling too good, too good myself
Are you feeling alright? Are you feeling alright?
Alright, I'm not feeling too good, too good myself
Are you feeling alright? Alright

Alright, I'm not feeling too good, too good myself
Are you feeling alright? Alright
Alright, I'm not feeling too good, too good myself
Are you feeling alright? Alright
Are you feeling alright?
I'm not feeling too good, too good myself

David Ruffin the best singer of the world

Christophe THOUROT

Totally agree with you, the greatest one.

ddlstr

One of my favorite cuts by David. Saw him perform this live at the Gemini 101 back in the early 70's.

ddlstr You're so lucky. I know he tore it up!

B. Rod Clark

not even Joe Cocker could sing this any better...and i like his version too

Barclay Eke

I don't think I have heard any version of this incredible song that I didn't like. Each version added an element of uniqueness to it that made the song universally acceptable to the avid music lovers.

Mr. BassMan

One of Jamerson's best basslines. Ruffin's voice was so soulful too, Funk Brothers!!!!!!!!!

youngboss24able

love the vibe from this song

When I heard this in the bank commercial, I thought it was Richie Havens or some such knockoff--and in that case, even a relatively recent recording. Messes with my head that I didn't recognize David Ruffin(bats self upside the head)!

Queen Nefertiti

I'm happy they used Ruffin's version. I don't think he got enough cred that he should have. RIP, man.
