Christian Quotes by Aretha Franklin

Angel

I got a call the other day

It was my sister, Carolyn, sayin

Aretha, come by when you can

I've got somethin I wanna say.

And when I got there she said

You know, rather than go through a long drawn out thing,

I think the melody on the box, will help me explain

Gotta find me an angel, to fly away with me

Gotta find me an angel, ooh and set me free

My heart is without a whole, I don't want to be alone

I gotta find me an angel in my life, in my life

Too long have I loved, so unattached within

So much that I know that I need somebody so

So I'll just go on hoping that I find me someone

Find me an angel in my life

In my life

I know there must be someone, somewhere for me

Oh I lived too long without the love of someone

And there's no misery ooooooh oooh like the misery

I feel in me, gotta find me an angel in my life

(He'll be there now don't you worry)

My life (keep lookin and just keep cookin)

My life (he'll be there, now don?t you worry)

My life

A Rose is Still a Rose

There was a rose I knew, I met her once or twice before

She was a pretty sweet thing, not the least bit insecure

Then you came with your slick game and played with her youth

Ashamed of the way you lied, played with the truth, hey, hey

Mmm, she never knew what hit her

Steal her honey, then forget her

A rose

She wears a flower

Tryin' to forget about you

'Cause a rose is still a rose

Baby, girl, you're still a flower

He can't lead you and then take you

Make you and then break you

Darlin', you hold the power

Now believe me when I tell you that I've been hurt myself

When he tells you that he loves you and sees nobody else

And now you're so tough tryin' to wear tight clothes and things

Tossin' and flossin', tryin' to fill the void heartbreak brings

Oh…oh…yeah


When she faces the mirror, yeah

She's cryin', you can't hear her

Now the rose is still a rose

She wears a flower, tryin' to forget about you

'Cause a rose is still a rose

Baby, girl, you're still a flower

He can't lead you and then take you

Make you and then break you

Baby, girl, you hold the power

See a rose is still a rose

Baby, girl, you're still a flower

He can't lead you and then take you

Make you and then break you

Darlin', you hold the power

Let your life be in the sunshine

Not the darkness of your sorrow

You may see your all today

When you know it'll come tomorrow

Tough to be, but life ain't over

Just because your man is gone

Girl, love yourself and love to love

'Cause without him your life goes on

Without him your life goes on

Without him your life goes on

'Cause a rose is still a rose

Baby, girl, you're still a flower

He can't lead you and then take you

Make you and then break you

Baby, girl, you hold the power

See a rose is still a rose

Baby, girl, you're still a flower

He can't lead you and then take you

Make you and then break you

Darlin', you hold the power

 

 

Drown in My Own Tears

It brings big tears into my eyes,

When I began, When I began to realize,

That cried so long,

Since you've been gone,

I guess I'm drowning drowning in my own tears,

I been crying Just like a child

These tears of mine, these tears are runnin' wild

And if you don't think, If you don't think that you'll be home soon

Baby I'm going to drown, Oh yeah, in my own tears

Here without you (You)

I get so lonely and I sure got blue (Blue)

Yes I do

It seems to keeps raining (raining) raining and raining

More and more (More and more)

Without you baby

You know for a time I look around it's raining

More and more More and more More and more

Why can't you, (You) Why can't you

Why can't you Come on home (you Come on home)

Because I don't want to be

I don't want to Be here all alone

Listen, If you don't think (If you don't think)

If you don't think that you're coming home soon

You got me (think)

I believe I'm going to drown this morning (drown)

Groovin'

Now all crew come get some sunshine

Summer time vibes come back again

Tell all your friends man!

Groovin' on a summer afternoon.

Groovin' couldn't get away too soon.

Now every woman every man come listen this one

From the heartical dan Mr. Pato Banton.

Me comin' in c-comin' in c-comin' in strong

With a positive summer time vibration.

Cause in the winter me can't take the cold

Body start shiver when the breeze start blow.

Car can't start cause the engine froze

Can't move me fingers, can't feel me toes.

But in the summer when the sun shine bright

Kick off me boot put on me air nike.

Leave me car and jump pon me bike

It's this kind of weather I like.

Well everyday people are in a rat race

But if I could I would just slow down the pace.

Like a record on a deck, switch the speed

From 45 down to 33.

Woh! Nice and slow

Sun a shine and breeze a blow.

Lord! Nice and easy

Just a chill with me friends and family.

I can't imagine anything that's better

The world is ours whenever we're together

There ain't no place I'd rather be instead of groovin'!

Now in the struggle of life to achieve success

Everyone goes through some form of stress.

The rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief

Lawyer and the doctor, even the priest.

 

 

House That Jack Built

This is the house that Jack built, y'all

Remember this house!

This was the land that he worked by hand

It was the dream of an upright man

There was the room that was filled with love

It was a love that I was proud of

This is the life, the life that he planned

On the love, the same old loved

Of the house that Jack built.

Remember this house!

There was the fence that held our love,

There was the gate that he walked out of

This is the heart it has turned to stone

This was the house, it ain't no home

This is the love that I destroyed

On the day that I toyed with love,

This is the house that Jack built,

I'm gonn' remember this house!

Oh-ohh wha-a-at's the use of crying?

You know I brought it on myself

There's no denying

But it see-e-ee-ems awful funny

That I didn't understand

Until I lost my upright man

Up on the hill

Everything stands still

In the house that Jack built

I'm gonna remember this house

Listen!

I got the house

I got the car

I got the rug

And I got the rack

But I ain't got Jack

And I want my Jack back!

I turned my back on Jack

He said he wasn't coming back

I turned my back on Jack

He said he wasn't coming back

Ohhh, Jack

You oughta come on back

Ohh Jack

You oughta come on back

To the that you built

It's the same one that you built

I didn't understand

Until I lost a upright man

Come on back Jack

 

 

I Never Loved a Man

You're a no good heart breaker

You're a liar and you're a cheat

And I don't know why

I let you do these things to me

My friends keep telling me

That you ain't no good

But oh, but they don't know

That I'd leave you if I could

I guess I'm uptight

And I'm stuck like glue

'Cause I ain't never

I ain't never, I ain't never, no, no (loved a man)

(The way that I, I love you)

Some time ago I thought

You had run out of fools

But I was so wrong

You got one that you'll never lose

The way you treat me is a shame

How could you hurt me so bad

Baby, you know that I'm the best thing

That you ever had

Kiss me once again

Don'cha never, never say that we're through

Cause I ain't never

Never, Never, no, no (loved a man)

(The way that I, I love you)

I can't sleep at night

And I can't eat a bite

I guess I'll never be free

Since you got, your hooks, in me

Whoa, oh, oh

Yeah! Yeah!

I ain't never loved a man

I ain't never loved a man, baby

Ain't never had a man that hurt me so bad

No

Well this is what I'm gonna do about it...

 

 

I Will Survive

At first I was afraid, I was petrified,

Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side,

But then I spent so many nights

just thinking how you did me wrong

And I grew strong

And I learned how to get along

And so you're back

From outer space,

I just walked in to find you here

With that sad look upon you're face,

I should have changed that stupid lock,

I should have made leave your key,

If I'd known for just one second

You'd be back to bother me.

Go on now go,

Walk out the door,

Just turn around now,

Cause you're not welcome anymore,

Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbyes

Do you think I'd crumble?

Do you think I'd lay down and die?

Oh no not I

I will survive

Oh as long as I know how to love

I know I'll stay alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got all my love to give

And I will survive

I will survive

Hey Hey!

It took all the strength I had

Not to fall apart

Kept trying hard to mend

The pieces of my broken heart

And I spent oh so many nights

Just feeling sorry for myself

I used to cry

But now I hold my head up high.

And you'll see me

Somebody new

I'm not that chained up little person

Still in love with you

And so you felt like dropping in

And just expect me to be free

But now I'm saving all my lovin'

For someone who's lovin' me

Go on now go

Walk out the door

Just turn around now

Cause you're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye?

Did you I crumble?

Did you think I'd lay down and die?

Oh no not I

I will survive

Oh as long as I know how to love

I know I'll stay alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got all my love to give

I will survive

I will survive

Hey hey!

 

 

Rock-a-Bye Your Baby With a Dixie Melody

Rock-a-bye your baby with a Dixie melody.

When you croon, croon a tune from the heart of Dixie.

Just hang my cradle, mammy mine,

Right on that Mason Dixon line,

And swing it from Virginia

To Tennessee with all the heart that's in ya.

Weep no more, my lady.

Sing the song for me.

Soft and low, just as though

You had me on your knee.

A million baby kisses I'd gonna deliver,

The minute that you sing that Swanee River.

Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby with a Dixie melody.

Weep no more, my fair lady.

Why don't you sing the song for me.

Soft and low, just as though

You had me, had me on your knee.

A million baby kisses I said, said I'm gonna deliver,

The minute that you sing that Swanee River.

Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby with a Dixie melody.

A million baby kisses I'm gonna deliver,

The minute that you sing that Swanee River.

Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby with a Dixie melody.

 

 

See Saw

Sometimes you love me like a good man ought-ta

Sometimes you hurt me so bad my tears run like water

You get me up right before your friends

Then you disown me baby 'til we're alone again

Your love is like a see saw. Your love is like a see saw baby

Your love is like a see saw, goin' up and down all around

It's like a see saw

Sometimes ya tell me ya don't need my sweet candy man

And then sometimes baby I don't know where I stand

You lift me up when I'm on the ground

But as soon as I get up top you send me tumblin' down

Now your love is like a see saw. Your love is like a see saw baby

Your love is like a see saw, goin up.... down

All around

Just like a see saw

When I kiss you and I like it and I ask you to kiss me again

When I reach for you ya jump clean out of sight

You change just like the wind

That ain't right. That ain't right. That ain't right. That ain't right baby

Your love is like a see saw. Your love is like a see saw baby

Your love is like a see saw, goin up goin' down

Goin' all around

It's like a see saw. Your love is like a see saw

Your love is like a see saw baby. Your love is like a see saw

Goin' up goin down

All around

It's like a see saw yeah

See saw baby
