Koko Taylor – Bring Me Some Water lyrics

Tonight I feel so lonely
All in love ain't fair
I turn the other cheek, baby
I learned to slap and the stink of the foul night air

I know, you're only human but I don't have talking room
Tonight while you're makin' excuses
Some other woman is makin' love
Some other woman makin' love to you

Somebody bring me some water
I'm burnin' up alive
My baby's got another lover
Don't know how I'll survive

Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see it's out of control?
Got my heart, got my mind
But tonight sweet devil, sweet devil's got my soul

When will this aching pass?
When will the night be through?
I hear the breakin' glass
I only feel the steel of the red hot truth

I'd do anything, get you off of my mind
I need some insanity that temporary kind
Tell me how I ever be the same
I know that woman is somewhere whisperin'
That other woman somewhere whisperin' your name

Somebody bring me some water
I'm burnin' up alive
My baby's got another lover
Don't know how I'll survive

Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see, it's out of control?
Got my heart, got my mind
But tonight the sweet devil, sweet devil's got my soul

Somebody bring me some water
I'm burnin' up alive
My baby's got another lover
How am I gonna survive?

Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see, it's out of control?
Got my heart, got my mind
But tonight sweet devil, sweet devil's got my soul

Hey, hey, hey
He got my soul, he got my heart
He got my mind, he got my soul
Oh sweet devil, c'mon devil
[Incomprehensible], you devil, you devil, you devil
Oh sweet devil
