slippin’ and slidin’ lyrics – otis redding

slippin’ and a-slidin’, peepin’ and a-hidin’
been told a long time ago
slippin’ and a-slidin’, peepin’ and a-hidin’
been told a long time ago
i’ve been told, baby, you’ve been bold
i won’t be your fool no more

oh, big conniver, ain’t nothin’ but a jiver
i done got hip to her jive
oh, big conniver, ain’t nothin’ but a jiver
done got hip to her jive

slippin’ and a-slidin’, peepin’ and a-hidin’
and i won’t be your fool no more

oh, miss. melinda, she’s a solid sender
that girl, she’d better surrender
oh, miss. melinda, she’s a solid sender
you know you better surrender

slippin’ and slidin’, peepin’ and hidin’
and i won’t be your fool no more

you be slippin’ and a-slidin’, peepin’ and a-hidin’
been told a long time a time ago
slippin’ and a-slidin’, peepin’ and a-hidin’
been told a long time ago
i’ve been told, baby, you’ve been bold
i won’t be your fool no more

i said you, oh, miss. melinda, you ain’t nothin’ but a sender
better, better to surrender girl
oh, miss. melinda, ain’t nothin’ but a sender
you know you better surrender

you be slippin’ and a-slidin’, peepin’ and a-hidin’
i won’t be your fool no more
slippin’ and a-slidin’, peepin’ and a-hidin’
i won’t be your fool no more
