Little Willie John – My Nerves lyrics

My Nerves 2: 34
Little Willie John
(Henry Glover, Isaac Toombs)
Recorded Mar 1, 1956 King Single 4935
With Ernie Hayes-piano, Mickey Baker-guitar, Carl Pruitt-bass
David 'Panama' Francis-drums, Bill Graham-alto sax
Big John Greer & Lowell 'Count' Hastings-tenor sax
Danny Bank-baritone sax.

You hold my hand and I can't understand
My nerves, oh my nerves
One look from you and you don't know what you do
To my nerves, oh my nerves
Ooh, my nerves

You hold me tight and kiss me right
My nerves, oh my nerves
I get such a thrill it sends a chill
To my nerves, all my nerves

A-can't you see what you do to me
To have me feel this way?
I pat my feet and I clap my hands
And I snap my fingers all day

Whisper low that you love me so
My nerves, all my nerves
I should be bold when I lose control
Of my nerves, all my nerves

(Instrumental and saxs)

Like the sun shines in the sum-um-um-mer
Like the sun shines in the fall
I'll be there anytime a-you want me
All you gotta do is call

Call my name and you start that-a flame
In my nerves, all my nerves
When you're around, I can't hold 'em down
My nerves, all my nerves

One little squeeze and I just kind-a ease
My nerves, whoa my nerves!
I'm a total wreck, 'cause I just can't check
My nerves

Whoa! My Nerves!
