Midnight Special
Little Richard Lyrics


Well, you wake up in the morning
You hear the work bell ring
And they march you to the table
You see the same old thing

Ain't no food upon the table
And no fork up in the pan
But you better not complain, boy
You get in trouble with the man
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a ever-lovin' light on me

Yonder come miss Rosie
How in the world did you know
By the way she wears her apron
And the clothes she wore
Umbrella on her shoulder
Piece of paper in her hand
She come to see the governor
She want to free her man

Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a ever-lovin' light on me

If you're ever in Houston
Well you'd better do right
You'd better not gamble
And you better not fight at all
Or the sheriff will grab you
And the boys will bring you down
The next thing you know boy
Well, you're prison bound

Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a ever-lovin' light on me

Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine a ever-lovin' light on me

Michael Johnston. We don't have anybody like you where I come from. The moment we shit out a Scotsman, we pinch its head off.

But thanks for telling me about Scotland, I wasn't sure the backwards place still existed. That's somewhere in the ocean? right? And thanks for telling me how ugly I am. It's a relief to know that Scotsmen don't find me attractive I myself don't pay much attention to whether a man is handsome or ugly. But I understand Scotsmen, prefer blokes. I take it you personally prefer handsome men. I guess that explains why Scotsmen wear skirts. If you meet a handsome man, you can bend over, pull up your skirt, and entertain him.. right? Maybe marry him if he's handsome enough? That explains why Scottish Parliament passed its Gay Marriage Bill by a vote of 108-15. You and your masters, the Brits, do love that Spotted Dick! I guess if you eat haggis, you'll put anything in your mouth. Wink Wink.

Even you icon picture on youtube has a naked man wanking! You are a total wanker and quite proud of it! And you have a tattoo! I've heard of Yankee Doodle, but you are Wanky Doodle! A walking, scratch pad...I've never met a moron who didn't have a tattoo! It's rather like the club insignia.

I've heard that Scotsmen are cheap, so I'm not surprised, matey, that you are still listening to the original 1927 recording of Midnight Special... do you scotsmen pass the record around from hovel to hovel or is there a big pig barn somewhere that you all get together with the young kids from gym and push holes in each other while antique records play? Do you still have the original copy of "Oh Susannah"? That's an amusing rollicking tune that i'm sure all you Scottish arse bandits can hike your skirts up to! Specifically what holes are you pushing? Which do you prefer..pushing holes, or getting yours pushed? I'm sorry about your hard shits.... perhaps if you stop getting your hole pushed, your stools might soften. Do you always talk like Popeye, matey? I guess Popeye is still popular there. Does anyone have color TV? Or do they cost too much? How's that Brexit coming along that your brit masters voted up for you? It must hurt to be subservient your whole life. That would explain your bad attitude, and your failed attempts to act clever and knowlegeable.

Oh, Speaking of Music, The Proclaimers! Ha ha ha... "500 miles"
I just realized: It's a fag song! The only hit your country ever had is a fag song! Nowhere in the song "500 Miles" do the geeky-looking twins mention they are singing about a girl! Now, I know why! You are all fags! You can sing "500 Miles" to your boyfriend....and I bet you do.... Michael, may I ask you a personal question...is your mom a midget? I understand lady midgets are fun in bed. Are you a midget? I know Scotland is famous for having lots of midgets. Is that why the Brits boss you around mate? All you tiny little scotsmen running about in your cute catholic school girl skirts must get those british tossers hard as rocks..... I understand dwarfism comes from in-breeding. I guess that's why you and the kids hang out at the gym... trying your damndest to be big men. But alas poor Yorick, You're All mouth and no trousers.
Make sure you wear your knickers with your cute little skirt! If you ever get off the island... let me know and I'll let you blow my bag pipe.

At last I got it. What a neglected talent. At least the Beatles and the stones gave this guy some respect, big style. this is classic musical.
