Dan Seals - Addicted Lyrics   She says she hates to sleep alone but she'll do it to night She wants to grab her telephone but she knows it ain't right So if he won't call, she'll survive and if he don't care, she'll get by Climb into bed, bury her head, and cry From the beginning he was all anyone could have been They were delirious with love they were certain to win Now he's breaking plans more and more and he's leaving notes on her door Took a trip out of town, couldn't turn this one down; He said, "I guess I should have told you before." She says she feels like she's addicted to a real bad thing, Always sitting, waiting, wondering if the phone will ring, She knows she bounces like a yo-yo when he pulls her string, It hurts to feel like such a fool. She wants to tell him not to call or come a round again, He doesn't need her now at all the way that she needs him. She's on the edge about to fall from leaning out and in, And she don't know which way to move. She wants to be fair, she couldn't say he was ever unkind, But if she could bear to walk away she thinks he wouldn't mind 'Cause he just keeps himself  so apart and there's no one else in her heart, So she's taking a dive from an emotional high and coming down hard. She's determined to try but she'll still give in when he gives her a call. She'll ask herself why, but in the end it won't matter at all. Sure, she could sit at home, stay inside  and sleep alone with her pride And as she walks out that door, she feels  as weak as before with nothing to hide. She says she feels like she's addicted to a real bad thing, Always sitting, waiting, wondering if the phone will ring, She knows she bounces like a yo-yo when he pulls her string, It hurts to feel like such a fool. She wants to tell him not to call or come a round again, He doesn't need her now at all the way that she needs him. She's on the edge about to fall from leaning out and in, And she don't know which way to move. She says she feels like she's addicted to a real bad thing, Always sitting, waiting, wondering if the phone will ring, She knows she bounces like a yo-yo when he pulls her string, It hurts to feel like such a fool. And she don't know which way to move. It hurts to feel like such a fool.

George Strait performs "Chill Of An Early Fall" (lun, 24 sep 2018)
"The Chill of an Early Fall" is a song written by Green Daniel and Gretchen Peters and recorded by American country music artist George Strait. It was released in September 1991 as the third single from his album Chill of an Early Fall. The song reached number 3 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in December 1991.   The narrator is a man who knows that his lover has been with a guy before or perhaps cheated in the past. He feels the chill of an early fall when he thinks about it and when her "old friend" comes around. The question of whether the other man is just a friend or more torments the narrator and drives him to drink. WIKIPEDIA
George Strait - Chill Of An Early Fall Lyrics   Well her old friend, from her own end of town dropped by today,  And way down deep inside me something died  When he came 'round to see her that way.  Here it comes again, that same old chilly wind  Will blow like a cold winter squall. And I'll begin to feel the chill of an early fall.  And I'll be drinking again and thinking whenever he calls,  There's a storm coming on, it won't be too long till the snow falls.  Oh I'll be sobersome,  But when October comes and goes and no time at all  I'll begin to feel the chill of an early fall. Oh how quick they slip away, here today and gone tomorrow.  Love and seasons never stay, bitter winds are sure to follow.  Now there's no doubt, it's gonna be cold out tonight;  I've shivered all day, and when I look in her eyes  Needing to hold her so tight, she just looks away.  Oh she'll swear that it's true, he's just someone she knew  Long ago, and I'll know that's not all, And I'll begin to feel the chill of an early fall.  Oh I'll begin to feel the chill of an early fall.

George Strait performs "If I Know Me" (lun, 24 sep 2018)
"If I Know Me" is a song written by Pam Belford and Dean Dillon, and performed by American country music artist George Strait. It was released in March 1991 as the first single to his album Chill of an Early Fall. It peaked at number 1 on both the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart.   The narrator has just left his lover, but he knows that if he knew himself, then he'd turn his car around, and not get out of town, and come running back to her. WIKIPEDIA
George Strait - If I Know Me Lyrics   We both said some things I know we never meant, And when I slammed the door tonight you wondered where I went. If I know you, you're probably wonderin' what to do. You're thinkin' that I'm gone for good, if I know you. But if I know me, I'll turn this car around. I won't get halfway through town, and I'll be sorry. I'll stop and call, and you'll say you're sorry too, And I'll come runnin' back to you, if I know me. Sometimes I lose my head, say things to break your heart, Forgettin' if I lost your love, it would tear my world apart. If I know you, you didn't mean one single thing you said. Truth be known, you're dyin', cryin', lyin' there in bed. But if I know me, I'll turn this car around. I won't get halfway through town, and I'll be sorry. I'll stop and call, and you'll say you're sorry too, And I'll come runnin' back to you, if I know me. If I know me, and I know me.

Flip Wilson Ans Roy Clark performs " Medley Of Country Songs" (lun, 24 sep 2018)
In 1970 Wilson's variety series, The Flip Wilson Show, debuted on NBC. He performed in comedy sketches and played host to many African-American entertainers, including the Supremes, the Jackson Five, the Temptations, Gladys Knight & the Pips, comedian Redd Foxx, and basketball player Bill Russell. He greeted all his guests with the "Flip Wilson Handshake,": four hand slaps, two elbow bumps finishing with two hip-bumps. George Carlin was one of the show's writers, and Carlin also made frequent appearances on the show, as the two would expand Carlin's news-weather-sports satire. Wilson's characters included Reverend Leroy, materialistic pastor of the "Church of What’s Happening Now," and his most popular character, Geraldine Jones, who frequently referred to her unseen boyfriend, "Killer," and whose lines "The devil made me do it" as well as "What you see is what you get" became national catchphrases.   The Flip Wilson Show aired through 1974, generating high ratings and popularity among viewers and winning strong critical acclaim, with eleven Emmy Award nominations during its run, winning two. Wilson also won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series. WIKIPEDIA

The Carlisles performs "No Help Wanted" (lun, 24 sep 2018)
Carlisle was born in Wakefield, Kentucky southeast of Louisville. He performed in the 1920s with his older brother, Cliff Carlisle, on radio stations WLAP-AM in Lexington, Kentucky and WNOX-AM in Knoxville, Tennessee. His first solo single and hit was the 1933 recording of "Rattlesnake Daddy," released on ARC Records. That year he formed the Carlisle Brothers with Cliff, and in 1938 they signed with Decca Records and continued performing on Kentucky country radio programs. He created an alter ego for the WNOX's Mid-Day Merry-Go-Round and Tennessee Barn Dance shows called Hot Shot Elmer, a bumbling buffoon in costume who would "interrupt" Carlisle's own performances. His leaps on stage won him the moniker "Jumpin' Bill."   Carlisle's guitar style was noted for its precision and speed, and he employed yodeling as a vocalist. Like his brother, he released many songs which included humorous, veiled references to sexuality. The duo signed with King Records after World War II, and hit big with the Ernest Tubb cover, "A Rainbow at Midnight", in 1946. Carlisle had a solo hit in 1948 with "Tramp on the Street". Cliff retired from the business about 1950, and Bill put together a backing ensemble, The Carlisles, though none of them was related to him. Among its members were singer Martha Carson and songwriter Betty Amos.   Carlisle signed with Mercury Records and continued to release novelty song hits in the 1950s, such as "Too Old to Cut the Mustard", a top ten country hit in 1951 later covered by artists including Rosemary Clooney. Other hits included the number one smash "No Help Wanted" (their biggest) and the top ten "Taint Nice (To Talk Like That)", both 1953. That year the Carlisles were invited to join the Grand Ole Opry. In the mid-1950s, Carlisle was a regular performer on ABC-TV's Ozark Jubilee WIKIPEDIA The Carlisles - No Help Wanted lyrics   Well I got a gal from New Orleans Prettiest little thing that you ever seen Got a cute little walk with a hippitty hop Big at the little and bottom at the top   (Do you need any help) No help wanted (You could use a little help) I said no help wanted (If you need any help, just call on me) (Do you need any help, do you need any help) I'll handle this job all by myself   Well I love my baby, she's a little bitty booger Cute as a buttom and sweet as sugar Gonna buy her a diamond ring We'll get married in the spring   (Do you need any help) No help wanted (You could use a little help) No help wanted (If you need any help, just call on me) (Do you need any help, do you need any help) I'll handle this job all by myself   (Instrumental Break)   Well she calls me her little piggy-wiggy And I call her my little thing-a-ma-jiggy Everytime I ask her for a kiss I hear a voice sound somethin' like this   (Do you need any help) No help wanted (You could use a little help) No help wanted (If you need any help, just call on me) (Do you need any help, do you need any help) I'll handle this job all by myself   Well I'm gonna take her honky tonkin' tonight We're gonna do everything up right When the music starts to swing and sway We're gonna dance till the break of day   (Do you need any help) No help wanted (You could use a little help) I said no help wanted (If you need any help, just call on me) (Do you need any help, do you need any help) I'll handle this job all by myself
