Luther Allison – You Can, You Can lyrics

Oh baby, let's talk
If you don't wanna take a listen, take a walk
I'm here with you, can't you see? (yeah)
You make me mad
Can't you hear my plea?

Love is what I want
But you give me the blues
You can, you can, love me
You can, you can, hold me too (yeah)
I love you too much
That's what I want you to do

I just don't understand
Why I can't get it on with you
Tell me what's wrong?
You know, treat me like you do
Used to do, that is

Sit down and listen to me
Can't you understand what I'm sayin'?
It's good for me to start walkin'
Hand me down my walkin' cane
You know you've got me cryin'
And I still got the blues
You can, you can, love me
You can, you can, hold me, too
Babe, understand
'Cause this is what I want you to do

Listen to me
You can, you can, give me your love
You can, you can, understand
You can, you can, turn your back
And you can, you can, do me like that
A-one thing for sure, baby
I don't wanna let you go
You can, you can, give me that love
You can hear me talk instead
You can, you can, spend my money
And you can give it to your other man

Yeah, yeah, aah
Aah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
