A LOVE SO FINE

Live 08 Aug 1975 version


One, two!

Ah, one! Two!

That's all right
All right, now
Whoa

Well, there these sparklin' angels on your fire-escape
They're gonna lie to your mama for you, tryin' to keep you safe
You're with them fire alley virgins on a midnight vamp
You lost your heart on Main Street to a beautiful tramp
That's all right
You love mine
Got a love so fine (a love so fine)
Got a love so fine (a love so fine)
Got a love so fine (a love so fine)
Got a love so fine (a love so fine)

Well, rat's trap's filled with soul crusaders
They're all popping and hopping and jumping
To Little Melvin and The Invaders
You're out on the floor, you can't get up
Your baby's out there dancing that Continental Strut
She looks so good, she blows your mind
You're in a love so fine (a love so fine)
You're in a love so fine (a love so fine)
You're in a love so fine (a love so fine)
A love so fine (a love so fine)
All right!

(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah)
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
All right, it's all right

Everybody's reeling when the band hits the ceiling
Don't you know you just wanna go
The joint starts rocking, your knees start knocking
Everybody wanna go
Let's go!

Three in the morning and the bars close down
You're walking with your baby to the bad side of town
Little kids, they ask for her number
They call to her up, because they wanna love her!
That's all right, you don't mind
You're in a love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
A love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
A love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
A love so fine (a love so fine)
Oh, go!

[Spoken:] Take a little breather. Be in this room here tonight about this time. Start it on beat.

We're havin' a party (havin' a party)
Dancin' to the music (dancin' to the music)
Played by the DJ (played by the DJ)
On the radio (on the radio)
The Coke's are in the icebox (in the icebox)
The popcorn's on the table (oh, yeah, on the table)
Me and my baby
We're out there on the floor

We're havin' a party (havin' a party)
Everybody's swingin'
Dancin' to the music
On the radio
So Mister, Mister DJ
Keep those records playin'
'Cause I'm havin' such a good time
Dancin' with my baby

Yes it is.
Bam!
