WOW, I FEEL SO GOOD
(Willie Mabon)
WILLIE MABON (CHESS 1592, 1955)

In my rent I'm in the rears
Stomach feels like it's been empty for years
Cloths on windows like they're running from soap
Sometimes I feel that there just ain't no hope
'Cause I feel so good, I feel so good
I feel so good, I'm glad I feel that way

My roomlight's no brighter than a candle
The place looks like somebody had a ramble
Spiders and rats run throughout the day
And every night I make some kind of play
'Cause I feel so good, I feel so good
I feel so good, I'm glad I feel that way

All my friends come up, we have a big time
I get my buddy's tick and he gets mine
We get some wine and get real gay
Then I look at all my friends and say;
Wow, I feel so good, I feel so good
I feel so good, I'm glad I feel that way

Ain't had no job since years ago
Don't worry about my food and has no dough
Spends every day beatin' across that pool
I know you people must think I'm a fool
'Cause I feel so good, I feel so good
I feel so good, I'm glad I feel that way

All my friends come up, we have a big time
I get my buddy's tick and he gets mine
We get some wine and get real gay
Then I look at all my friends and say;
Wow, I feel so good, I feel so good
I feel so good, I'm glad I feel that way

'Cause I feel so good, I feel so good
I feel so good, I'm glad I feel that way
