Etta James – Strung Out lyrics

I will do whatever you say
It's got to be, it's got to be that way, yes it does
Because it's true, oh, oh yeah, it's true
That I'm strung out, strung out on you, on you

Alright, if you say one, just tell me, boy
I'm gonna start walkin' and if you say talk
Tell me I'm gonna open my mouth and start talkin', boy

I'm strung out, well, oh yeah, I'm strung out on you
Oh ha, on you, baby, on you, on you
You, you, you, you, you

Yeah, now listen, I was in such a romance, hey, hey
And I stopped off in Paris, France, yes I did
It was a whole lot of people knew me, oh yeah
But don't you know, don't you know that wouldn't do me, no, no, no, no

And I stopped off in Spain, everything, everything remains the same
I just needed you, needed you, you, you, talkin' about you
I just needed you, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby

If you say, walk, darlin', I'll put on my best shoes and start walkin'
Hey, and I dare you to tell me to talk, all day and all night
I'm gonna be talkin', 'cause I'm strung out and well

I'm strung out on you, I'm strung out, strung out, baby, on you
Strung out on you, you, you, you, oh yeah, yeah
My goodness, I got a Jones, baby

Well, well, well, now listen now, now
Oh bay, oh yeah, well, well, now listen

I went to the family doctor, yes I did
And he used everything he had, yes he did
And he said, "Etta, your case is so sad, it's so sad"

You, you, I need you, I need you, you, you, you
Oh baby, I need you, I need you like the bees need the flowers
And like the trees need the sunshine
And I need only the one that I'm strung out, strung out on you
No, it's you, you, you, oh yeah, strung out on you
