  1. Step That Step

    First Verse:

                Well Mama told me when I was three

                Lord, the street’ll never get you no where

                You take a street car jump and a back beat bump

                And get along like it isn’t there

                You hold your head up high like you’re gonna fly

                You take the bitter till you find the sweet

    And when you got that crowd and their screamin’ loud

                You leave em’ sittin’ on the edge of their seat.

    Chorus:

                Oh, yeah you gotta step that step

                Walk that walk

                Shake that thing

                And honey, talk that talk

    Second Verse:

                Well Hollywood, if New York could

                Keep you boppin’ till the break of day

                No time to rest and ya gotta feel blessed

                ‘Cause your gonna get it anyway

                Now when you start to wail and your face turns pale

                You gotta pump it till your pistol pops

                And as the eagle flew, baby so will you

                ‘Cause your climbin’ all the way to the top

    Chorus

    Repeat Chorus

                And honey, talk that talk

    Oh, step that step

                Walk that walk

                Oh Girl, Shake that thing

                Gotta talk that talk

    Well, step that step

  2. Heart Don't Fall Now

    Here she comes again, but me and you
    We're gonna close the door
    We won't her in, we're not gonna do it, like we've done before
    Stay here with me, keep a steady beat
    But not to loud, she might be listening

    Chorus
    Oh heart, don't fall now
    If you do I might never bring you back around
    Heart take it slow, don't let her know 
    Just how much we really need her now
    Heart, don't fall now

    She can break me down but she won't get through
    If you'll be on your guard, when she reaches out
    Oh, I'm counting on you, not to fall apart
    Here comes that touch
    We've been missing for such a long, long time
    I feel you giving in

    Chorus

    You'll pull it off some how
    This can be our finest hour
    Ah, heart without you
    I might not get through it
    Don't know if I can do it

    Repeat Chorus Three Times

  3. Betty's Bein' Bad

    Betty's out bein' bad tonight
    Betty and her boyfriend
    They had a big fight
    She found out
    What everybody knew
    Too many cooks spoil the stew
    She don't care
    What nobody thinks
    She's gonna be bad
    'til the whole town stinks

    chorus 
    Betty's bein bad
    Betty's bein bad
    She's bein bad bad bad
    She's out bein' bad
    Betty's out bein' bad tonight
    Betty and her boyfriend
    They had a big fight

    She went home when she found out
    Said, "Pack your bags
    I want you out"
    Her boyfriend thought
    She was talking jive
    'til he saw her standing
    With a .45
    A .45's quicker than 409
    Betty cleaned house
    For the very last time

    chorus
    Betty's bein bad
    Betty's bein bad
    She's bein bad bad bad
    She's out bein' bad
    Betty's out bein' bad tonight
    Betty and her boyfriend
    They had a big fight

    Now if you go out
    And you see Betty
    Don't scream and shout
    Unless you are ready
    You are ready to rock
    Ready to roll
    'til hell freezes over
    And you catch a cold
    Betty's not mad
    She's just getting even
    Betty's bein' bad
    It's her way of leaving

  4. The Race Is On

    I feel tears wellin' up cold deep inside
    Like my heart's sprung a big break
    And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
    That I may never shake

    Now you might say that I was taking it hard
    Since you wrote me off with a call
    But don't you wager that I'll hide in sorrow
    When I may lay right down and bawl

    Now the race is on
    And here comes pride in the backstretch
    Heartaches goin' to the inside
    My tears are holdin' back they're tryin' not to fall

    My hearts out of the runnin'
    True love's scratched for another's sake
    The race is on and it looks like heartaches
    And the winner looses all

    One day I ventured in love
    Never once suspectin' what the final result would be
    And how I lived in fear of waking up each morning
    Finding that you're gone from me

    There's ache and pain in my heart
    For today was the one that I hated to face
    Somebody new came up to win her
    And I came out in second place

    Now the race is on
    And here comes pride in the backstretch
    Heartaches goin' to the inside
    My tears are holdin' back they're tryin' not to fall

    My hearts out of the runnin'
    True love's scratched for another's sake
    The race is on and it looks like heartaches
    And the winner loses all

    Now the race is on
    And here comes pride in the backstretch
    Heartaches goin' to the inside
    My tears are holdin' back they're tryin' not to fall

    My hearts out of the runnin'
    True love's scratched for another's sake
    The race is on and it looks like heartaches
    And the winner loses all

    The winner loses all

  5. When Love Comes Callin'


    You can look out the window but you can't see a thing

    When the hound is howlin' and the wind won't sing
    And you can't run and you can't hide
    When love comes callin' in the middle of the night

    It won't bring no bags but you can bet
    It'll wake you up screamin' in a cold, cold sweat
    Ain't nothin' you can could do but hold on tight
    When love comes callin' in the middle of the night

    When love comes callin'
    When love comes callin' in the middle of the night
    Well, in the middle of the night, y'all

    It don't leave no tracks, it don't wear no shoes
    It can lift you up or it can sing the blues
    And it's faster than a bullet and the speed of light
    When love comes callin' in the middle of the night

    It don't need no doctor, it don't need the moon
    It may come to late, it may come to soon
    When the power is failed, it can turn on the light
    When love comes callin' in the middle of the night

    When love comes callin'
    When love comes callin' in the middle of the night
    Well, in the middle of the night, y'all

    There ain't nothin' you can do but hold on tight
    When love comes callin' in the middle of the night
    When love comes callin', when love comes callin'
    When love comes callin', when love comes callin'

    In the middle of the night
    Well, in the middle of the night
    Well, in the middle of the night, y'all
    Well, in the middle of the night

  6. Puttin' The Dark Back Into The Night

    The neon moon was lookin' over her shoulder
    She was sippin' wine and tellin' lots of tales
    When the bar flies are off the wall
    It's hard to stand up straight and tall
    When you're lookin' for someone to go your bail

    She's puttin' the dark back into the night
    She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
    The future ain't lookin' none too bright
    So she's puttin' the dark back into the night

    She gave her hand to a man who was only a lover
    His cheatin' drove her jealously insane
    Now the light at the end of the tunnel for her
    Is just a memory of the way we were
    And the look in her eye says she don't have to explain

    She's puttin' the dark back into the night
    She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
    The future ain't lookin' none too bright
    So she's puttin' the dark back into the night

    You'll never know just what you'll do
    When a broken heart comes from out of the blue
    She's out on the run, she's ready to blow
    She's out of her mind, she's losin' control

    She's puttin' the dark back into the night
    She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
    The future ain't lookin' none too bright
    So she's puttin' the dark back into the night

    She's puttin' the dark back into the night
    She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
    The future ain't lookin' none too bright
    So she's puttin' the dark back into the night

  8. Used To Blue


    I got your postcard from Dallas

    And you say you wonder if I'm doing alright
    I'm glad you still think about us
    You don't have to worry now, it hardly ever gets me down

    I'm getting used to blue
    I'll get used to getting over you
    I've been knocked around a time or two
    I'm getting used to blue

    I'll get me an unlisted number
    And I'll draw the curtains like there's nobody home
    Find me a cloud to sit under
    Baby, turn the TV on, I gotta have a little fun

    I'm getting used to blue
    I'll get used to getting over you
    I've been knocked around a time or two
    I'm getting used to blue

    You know it's gonna take some tears
    It's gonna take some time to get this feeling
    I keep by my side, oh, the way it had to fly

    I'm getting used to blue
    I'll get used to getting over you
    I've been knocked around a time or two
    I'm getting used to blue

    Used to blue
    I'll get used to getting over you
    I've been knocked around a time or two
    I'm getting used to blue

  10. Shakin'


    She has got the swing, alike in my backyard

    She has got the move but she don't go too far
    Shock and shiver, quake and quiver
    She'll deliver when you're with her, yeah, uh huh

    Spinning like a top, rolling with a rock
    Start her up and she don't stop
    She's shakin', she's shakin'

    She's shakin', shakin in her shoes
    And breakin', breakin' hearts to it
    Makin' all the news tonight

    And she's wakin', wakin' out the town
    And I'm achin', achin' up and down
    'Cause she's shakin'
    With her shoes tonight

    When she's on the street
    Heads are turnin' 'round
    The girls don't ever speak
    But the boys all gather 'round

    When she's hoppin'
    She keeps poppin'
    Can't quit rockin'
    Ain't no stoppin' now, uh huh

    Up and down the block, keepin' hearts a pop
    Makes us crazy round the clock
    She's shakin', she's shakin'

    She's shakin' shakin' in her shoes
    And breakin', breakin' hearts to it
    And makin' out the news tonight

    She's wakin', wakin' out the town
    And I'm achin', achin' up and down
    'Cause she's shakin', shakin'
    With her shoes tonight

    Oh, up and down the block
    Keepin' hearts a pop
    Makes us crazy round the clock
    She's shakin', she's shakin'

    She's shakin', shakin' in her shoes
    And breakin', breakin' hearts to it
    And makin' all the news tonight

    She's wakin', wakin' up the town
    And I'm achin', achin' up and down
    'Cause she's shakin', shakin'
    In her shoes tonight

    Ooh she's shakin', oh she's shakin'
    Ooh she's shakin', shakin' in her shoes
    Ooh she's shakin', ooh she's shakin'
