dictionary of soul lyrics – otis redding

fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

i keep singing them sad sad songs, y’all
sad songs is all i know
i keep singing them sad sad songs, y’all
sad songs is all i know

it has a sweet melody tonight
anybody can sing it any old time
i touches your heart
puts you in a groove
and when you sing this song
it’ll make your whole body move

it goes –
fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
your turn –
my turn
fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
your turn now –

all my life i’ve been singin’ sad songs
tryin’ to get my message to you, honey
but that’s the only song, y’all
i can sing
and when you get through singin’
my message will be to you

it goes –
fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
your turn now

it’s a lovely song, y’all
sweet music, honey
it’s just a line, oh but
it tells a story, baby
you got to get the message
a stone message, honey
a lovely line, baby
i’m worried in mind, watch me

fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
your turn –
everybody’s turn, everybody –
fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
one more time
fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
worried in mind, y’all…
