The Staple Singers – Slippery People lyrics
What about the time?
You were rollin' over
Falling on your face
You must be having fun
Walk lightly!
Think of a time.
You'd best believe
This thing is real

Put away that gun
This part is simple
Try to recognize
What is in your mind
God help us!
Help us lose our minds
These slippery people
Help us understand

What's the matter with him? (He's alright!)
I'd do it now (The lord won't mind)
Don't play no games (He's alright)
Love from the bottom to the top
Turn like a wheel (He's alright)
See for yourself (The lord won't mind)
We're gonna move (Right now)
Turn like a wheel inside a wheel

I remember when
Sittin' in the tub
Pulled out the plug
The water was runnin' out
Cool down
Stop acting crazy
They're gonna leave
And we'll be on our own
Seven times five
They were living creatures
Watch 'em come to life
Right before your eyes
Backslider!
How do you do?
These slippery people
Gonna see you through

What's the matter with him? (He's alright!)
I'd do it now (The lord won't mind)
Don't play no games (He's alright)
Love from the bottom to the top
Turn like a wheel (He's alright)
See for yourself (The lord won't mind)
We're gonna move (Right now)
Turn like a wheel inside a wheel

What's the matter with him? (He's alright!)
I'd do it now (The lord won't mind)
No no no games (He's alright)
Love from the bottom to the top
Turn like a wheel (He's alright)
See for yourself (The lord won't mind)
We're gonna move (Right now)
Turn like a wheel inside a wheel

What's the matter with him? (He's alright!)
I'd do it now (The lord won't mind)
No no no games (He's alright)
Love from the bottom to the top
Turn like a wheel (He's alright)
See for yourself (The lord won't mind)
We're gonna move (Right now)
Turn like a wheel inside a wheel

He's alright
The lord won't mind (no no)
He's alright
Love from the bottom to the top
He's alright
The lord won't mind (we're gonna move)
Right now!
Turn like a wheel inside a wheel

What's the matter with him? (He's alright!)
I'd do it now (The lord won't mind)
No no no games (He's alright)
Love from the bottom to the top
Turn like a wheel (He's alright)
See for yourself (The lord won't mind)
We're gonna move (Right now)
Turn like a wheel inside a wheel
