Track Name: Catfish
1. Catfish Robert Petway (trad arr M.Cummins)

Well I wish, I was a catfish
Swimmin in the deep blue sea
Wouldn't have all you women,
Chasin after me
Chasin after me , chasin after me.

Well I went down, down to the church house
And I fell down on my knees
And I pray to the lord have mercy,
Have mercy on me
Mercy on me, mercy on me

Well I'm tired, lord and i'm hungry
Baby please let me in thru your door
Promise I wont stay too long,
Cos down the road I'm goin
Down the road I'm goin, down the road I'm goin.

I went down, to my baby's house
And I asked her if I could sit on her stair
She said come on in Mr Hobo,
My husband just now left
My husband just now left……

Track Name: Dazed and Confused
2. Dazed And Confused J.Page/J.Holmes (trad arr M.Cummins)

Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you
Lots of people talk and few of them know
Soul of a woman was created below

You hurt and abuse tellin' all of your lies
Run around sweet baby, lord how they hypnotize
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been
Gonna love you baby, here I come again

Every day I work so hard, bringin' home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away
Don't know where you're goin', don't know where you've been
Sweet little baby, I want you again

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will
Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill

Track Name: Five Dollar Fine
3. Five Dollar Fine (c) M Cummins

February seven, two thousand and twelve
Checked into rehab, to get professional help
Stopped at the front door, they took my mobile phone
Said don't talk to the women, yeah leave them babes alone

Or it's a five dollar fine
It's a five dollar fine
If your messing round with them ladies
Lay your money on the line

Woke up next morning, about half past eight
No time for breakfast, no time to meditate
Went out for a smoke, there was nothin else to do
The nurse said hey mister, I need to talk to you

Cos its a five dollar fine
Its a five dollar fine
Smoking at the back door
Lay your money on the line

Later on that evening, it was getting kinda late
I was waiting for a red lady, to finish my straight
Ten to ace of diamonds, I was waiting for the queen
The dealer turned the card and I heard somebody scream

That's a five dollar fine,
Yeah that's a five dollar fine
Gambling in your jammies !!!?
Lay your money on the line

Now I aint got no money, by the time they take the rent
Buy myself a coffee and a packet of cigarettes
Now I aint been mis behaving, outside the back door
Messin round with them ladies, who keep coming back for more

Cos that's a five dollar fine
That's a five dollar fine
So pay the five dollar fine boy
Lay your money down on the line
Track Name: Vac Packed and Fed Ex'd
4. Vac Packed and Fed Ex’d (c) M.Cummins

If you want me to go home with you
There’s just one thing that you got to do
Take off that G string and a load off your chest
Get your lacy panties vacuum packed and fed ex’d

Makes no difference if the colour is black
Aint no guarantee that you will get them back
So only apply if you’re the opposite sex
Get your lacy panties vacuum packed and fed ex’d

There's a ring on my finger, a name on the line
But lord knows that woman she aint no longer mine
So give me your number name and address
And get your lacy panties vacuum packed and fed ex’d
Track Name: Cross Eyed Cat
5. Crosseyed Cat Muddy Waters

Yeah I'm so sorry, I got to leave my woman alone
Yeah I'm so sorry, I got to leave my babe alone
Well you know she got a cross eyed cat
Livin' without that man in her home

Every time I start to see this woman he's in the corner growlin' or layin' down
Every time I start to see this woman he's in the corner growlin' or layin' down
Yeah you know he too big to be a house cat
And he too small to be allowed (There's somethin' wrong)

Yeah I stop by my baby's house he start jumpin' from wall to wall
Yeah I stop by my honey's house he start jumpin' from wall to wall
Yeah he spun those cross eyes at me
Sat back in the corner boy and lickin his balls

Yeah, my woman got a cross eyed cat Livin' there with her in her home
Yeah, my woman got a cross eyed cat Livin' there with her boy, down her home
Oh you know I try so hard to do her right
But it seem like everything boy, I do is wrong

Bring me champagne when I'm thirsty.

And it relax your body don't you know.

Every time I get high
I lay my head down on my baby's breast.
Well you know I lay down be quiet
Tryin' to take my rest.
Well you know she done hug and kiss me
Says Muddy your one man that I love the best.

I'm gonna get high
Gonna get high just as sure as you know my name.
Y'know I'm gonna get so high this morning
It's going to be a cryin' shame.
Well you know I'm gonna stick with my reefer
Ain't gonna be messin' round with no cocaine.

Track Name: Bad Leg Boogie
8. Bad Leg Boogie (c)M.Cummins

Working on the ladder baby all night long
Trying to fix the wagon to be big and strong
Fell down off the ladder I fell so hard
Tried to walk away didn't get too far

I got the bad leg boogie
The bad leg boogie
I got the bad leg boogie
Bad leg boogalooo

Went down to the doctor and he told me son
Your drinking too much whiskey n' having too much fun
Get on down the country and fix your head straight
Take your bad leg boogie on outta that gate

I got the bad leg boogie.........

So I'm back up on the ladder baby both night and day
Fixin up my wagon baby, fixin to stay
Best foot forward baby this aint no race
Do the bad leg boogie all over the place

Do the bad leg boogie........
Track Name: Wish You Wood
9. Wish You Would Billy Boy Arnold

Early in the morning ’bout the break of day
That’s when my baby went away
Cryin’ and pleadin’ ain’t doing no good
Come back baby I wish you would

I love you baby and nobody else
I wouldn’t mistreat you for nobody else
Huggin’ and a kissin’ late at night
Make your baby love just right

Stayin’ out drinkin’ all night long
Drove my baby away from home
Please pretty baby give me one more chance
You know I love you, want to be your man

Cryin’ and pleadin’ ain’t doing no good
Come back babe I wish you would
Cryin’ and pleadin’ ain’t doing no good
Come back babe I wish you would

I just talked to my baby,
on the telephone
She said, Stop what you're doing and
come on home
I can't hold out, I can't hold out too long
I get a real good feeling, talking to you on the phone

Oh yeah, talk to me baby, talk to me baby
Talk to me baby, talk to me baby
I get a real good feeling, talking to you on the phone

She said, "Baby you know I love
you and you're my desire
You know I love you baby,
I hate to see you cry
I can't hold out, I can't hold out too long
I get a real good feeling, talking to you on the phone, oh yeah"

Talk to me baby, talk to me baby.........


She said, "Baby you can run, walk or fly
You know I love you baby and you're my own desire
I can't hold out, I can't hold out too long
I get a real good feeling, talking to you on the phone"

Oh yeah, talk to me baby, talk to me baby............
