Knock on Wood
LaVern Baker Lyrics


I don't want to lose you, this good thing
That I got cause if I do
I will surely surely lose a lot
Cause your love is better than any love I know
It's like thunder and lightning
The way you love me is frightening
You better knock, knock on wood, baby

I'm not superstitious about ya
But I can't take no chance
I got me spinnin', baby, you know I'm in a trance
Cause your love is better
Than any love I know
It's like thunder and lightning
The way you love me is frightening
You better knock, knock on wood, baby

It's no secret about it
That woman is my loving cup
Cause she sees to it, that I get enough
Just one touch from here
You know it means so much
It's like thunder and lightening
The way you love me is frightening
You better knock, knock on wood, baby

You better knock, knock, knock on wood.

The mighty LaVern Baker. They don't make singers like her anymore today. Such a pity.

This is LaVern's soundalike follow-up "Jim Dandy Got Married." According to Marv Goldberg, ""Jim Dandy" was such a big hit, that Lincoln Chase was commissioned to do a follow-up. Lavern's next release was 'Jim Dandy Got Married,' which expresses the theme that it's easier to rescue women than to be married to them. This made it to the (US) R&B Top Ten, but climbed no higher than #76 on the (US) Pop charts."

Mr. DC Memories

Do a YouTube search for the video titled "Dr Jive's RnB Show" and you'll find a performance of Tweedlee Dee by LaVern as well as some other amazing '50s jive acts, including Gator Tail Jackson. I can't believe he appeared on coast-to-coast national television on a Sunday night. CRAZY, MAN, CRAZY!
