A Hit of You

Mathew Sydney © 2009

 

Need a little something to tide me over

Need a little something to carry me through

I been jonesin' like crazy without you

Need another hit of you

Somethin' to get me through

 

There was something in the way you looked at me

Something else in the way you don't call

You're the only one who can take the edge off

Need another hit of you

Somethin' to get me through

 

They say, they say, they say you're no good for me

They say, they say, they say you're nothing at all

They say, they say I shouldn't worry about you

But I'm not a fool - I'm keepin' my eye on you

 

Once you really wanted to make it with me

All I wanted was to hook up with you

That was until I got hooked on you

Now I'm hooked on you

Needin' a piece of you

Somethin' to get me through

Just another hit of you

 

My sister says, she says you ain't worth a damn

My daddy says, he says I'm outta my mind

My momma says, she says to do my work on you

I will make you mine - it's gonna work out just fine

 

She gave me roots, she gave me powders to feed you

Told me the words to whisper every night

She showed me how to dress up, dress up that candle

Told me to burn it every Friday night

I told The Lord and I said to the devil

Went to the moon, gave her a piece of my mind

They know I'm gonna make you want me forever

You'll never, ever get me offa your mind

You got the craving, you be shakin' with fever

Your eyes are glassy and your throat has run dry

Looks like I got you, baby, right where I want you

But I ain't wasting time - I'm moving on down the line

I'm getting you off my mind - And, baby, I'm feeling fine

I'm feeling fine
