Melody Gardot – If I Tell You I Love You

There are so many things I could say, my love
Make you trip, so your lips would be mine
There are so many things I could do, my love
To convince you my love is divine
There are so many words I could tell you
There are so many moments in time
But I say ‘fore we go to the land down below
If I tell you I love you, I’m lying

There are so many places to go, my love
There are so many places to find
There are so many worlds to explore, my love
There are so many stars yet to shine
There are so many secrets to tell you
There are so many men on the line
But I say ‘fore we go to the land down below
If I tell you I love you, I’m lying

I maybe show the reason to call you up next time
So if you like your women sweet, ah, consider me your wine

I may be one for weekends to call you when you’re flying
But if I ever utter I love you, honey I am lying
And if I look into your eyes and tell you, honey I am lying
And if I ever whisper words unheard, such sultry words
(Oh, je t’aime
Oh oui, je t’aime)
Darling, I am lying…

Jojo Effect – Not with me

I walk in the room and the men stop to talk and to breathe
Women start to pinch them and rail against me seriously
But it’s not my fault, I do nothing forbidden at all
But they stand in line, try to snatch a glance
Oh no, I’m not that kind of girl, not with me!
They love how I lean my head on my hands and sip my drink
How I throw my head back, run my fingers through my hair
But I don’t do it on purpose, I behave decently
They throw themselves down to my feet want to kiss them
Oh no, what a waste of time, not with me!
I drink too much gin but don’t pay a cent for it, no!
I secretly struggle against it but then accept it
I don’t want to fleece someone, but allow them their pleasure
But if they expect something for it they blunder
Oh no, take a hike, not with me!

Paintings – Alan Fearnley
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I studied evil, I can’t deny,
Was a hoodoo charm called a Love Me or Die,
Some fingernail, a piece of her dress,
Apocathery, Devil’s behes’
I will relate, the piteous consequence my mistake,
Fallin slave to passin desire,
Makin’ the dreaded Love me or Die.

Against a Jungle primeval green,
She had the looks of a beauty queen
No bangles or chain, wearin’ broken shoe
Seventy-five cent bottle perfume.
I said, “Good mornin”, I tipped my hat,
All the while I was cunning like a rat,
Smilin gaily, looked her in the eye,
I felt in pocket, the Love me or Die

My past history, one to behold,
I studied magic from days of old,
Membership, secret societies,
Power and wealth in my family
But Matilda, Darling,
Why you don’t take my wedding ring,
Like a demon under the floor,
I buried the hoodoo down the back door.

Lawd, word broke through the town,
That a fever strike Matilda down,
Nine thirty, the doctor arrive,
Priest come runnin, quarter to five.
Standin in the weeds early next day,
I saw the meat wagon rollin away,
I seen Matilda layin in the back,
Her old mother wearin a suit of black

Sound the trumpet, and bang the drum,
I wait for me judgement to come,
I know her spirit is down beneath,
I hear the weepin and gnashing of the teeth.
Flames of Hell licks at my feet,
In the shadow of the Jungle I feel the heat,
Matilda’s waiting in Hell for me too,
All cause she died from a bad hoodoo.
