I. "Backdoor Love Affair"

Got to have you, baby, even
Though you say that you don't care.
Got to have you, baby, even
Though you say that you don't care.
Any way you want it,
Settle for a backdoor love affair.

- Billy Gibbons & Bill Ham

II. "Mellow Down Easy"

Jump, jump here, jump, jump there,
Jump, jump, baby, everywhere.
Don't you mellow down easy,
Babe, you got to mellow down easy.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Got to mellow down easy.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Got to mellow down easy, babe.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Got to mellow down easy.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top.

Shake, shake here, shake, shake there,
Shake, shake, baby, everywhere.
Don't you mellow down easy,
Babe, you got to mellow down easy.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Got to mellow down easy.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Got to mellow down easy, babe.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Got to mellow down easy.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top.

Shake, shake here, shake, shake there,
Shake, shake, baby, everywhere.
Don't you mellow down easy,
Babe, you got to mellow down easy.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Got to mellow down easy.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Got to mellow down easy, babe.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Got to mellow down easy.
Don't you mellow down easy.
Mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top.

- Willie Dixon

IV. "Long Distance Boogie"

Is everybody feelin' good? You makin' us feel good, too!
Now, early this morning I got on that long distance telephone
And I called my mama.
I said, "Mama, this is your boy, and I'm way down here in
New Orleans, Louisiana."
And she said, "That's all right, boy."
And she turned to my papa and she said,
"Papa, our boy's way down there in New Orleans.
We cannot let him stay out all night long."
She did!
Long about that time, I heard my papa lean toward my mama.
I heard papa tell mama, "Let that boy boogie-woogie."
He said, "It's in him and it's got to come out."

So I went downtown.
There's a lot of people there.
They was-a really havin' a ball.
And I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.

Boogie, children!

Boogie, children!

- Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard
