Spoonful
Willie Dixon Lyrics


It could be a spoonful of diamond
Could be a spoonful of gold
Just a little spoon of your precious love
Satisfy my soul

Men lies about little
Some of them cries about little
Some of them dies about littles
Everything fight about a spoonful
That spoon, that spoon, that sp-

It could be a spoonful of coffee
Could be a spoonful of tea
But a little spoon of your precious love
Good enough for me

Men lies about that
Some of them dies about that
Some of them cries about that
But everything fight about a spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that-

Ooh-ooh, fight about spoonfuls
Ooh-ooh, fight about a spoonful

It could be a spoonful of water
Save you from the desert sand
But one spoon of lead from my forty-five
Save you from another man

Men lies about that
Some of them cries about that
Some of them dies about that
Everybody fightin' about a spoonful

That spoon, that spoon, that-

Willie wrote this & so many blues standards. Plus he played great upright bass. You da man!

Not sure he ‘wrote’ it. More adapted it I think. It seems to have been around in one form or another for a long time. Look up Spoonful Blues, Charley Patton.

Willie Dixon the legend, one of the blues master who inspired a lot of famous musicians ... First black man who was producer, songwriter, singer, musician in music's history.

@Tom Olson You’re right : in an ideal world, talent should be the only thing that matters ; but, US black musicians used to be so robbed and mistreated in the past, it would be outrageous not to mention WD was a black artist

Tom Olson

@J B Nope. I cannot see. I cannot see the constant need by some to mention skin color. That is all.

J B

@Tom Olson Because he was purportedly the first US black man to work in all of those categories simultaneously, as funkyhaiss claims. Can you understand the significance of his skin colour in relation to that historic precedent?

Tom Olson

While I agree with the first part of your statement, I find myself wondering why his skin color matters?
