This was always one of my favorite ‘handle it’ songs that came out before my time.  When it was recently brought to my attention that Stevie wrote this one, I think I have to call it my number one.

And I’ve made this joke before, but it’s still true.  As a man, whenever I hear the lyric ‘What I’ve got will knock all your pride aside!’, my natural reaction is always,

‘SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!’

Enjoy and have a good weekend!

“Tell Me Something Good”

You ain’t got no kind of feeling inside
I got something that’ll sho nuff set yo’ stuff on fire
You refuse to put anything before your pride
What I got will knock your pride aside

[CHORUS:]
Tell me something good
Tell me that you love me, yeah
Tell me something good
Tell me that you like it, yeah

Got no time is what you’re known to say
(Got no time, no, got no time)
I’ll make you wish there was 48 hours to each day
Your problem is you ain’t been loved like you should
What I got to give will sho nuff do you good

Tell me somethin good
(tell me tell me tell me)
tell me that you love me, yeah
tell me somethin good
(tell me tell me tell me)
tell me that you like it, yeah

Tell me something good
Tell me that you like it, yeah
