I've been transcribing the lyrics to the songs on TTS. But there's some that are just escaping me. I will post them below. Can anyone work them out?

Someday Baby

I don't care what you do, don't care what you say
Don't care where you go or how long you stay
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

You take my money and you turn me out
You fill me up with self doubt
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

They made me eat a ton of dust
You put a------ and not worthy of trust
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

Little by little, bit by bit
Everyday I’m a-comin’ home with a ----------------
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

You’ve my mind tied up in knots
I just keep recycling the same old thoughts
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

When I heard you was cold, I bought you a coat and hat
I think you must have forgotten about that
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

Gonna blow out your mind and make it pure
I’ve taken about as much of this as I can endure
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

You put me down, run me up a creek
That’s all right, to you I turn the other cheek
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

You say you need me, how would I know?
You say you love me but it can’t be so
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

I don't want to brag, but I'll ring your neck
When all else fails I'll make it a matter of self respect
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

Living this way ain't a natural thing to do
Why was I born to love you?
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

Dignity [cd 2 version]

Fat man lookin' in a ferris wheel
Yellow man lookin' at his last meal
Hollow man lookin' in a cotton field
For dignity.

Wise man lookin' in a blade of grass
Young man lookin' in the days that pass
Poor man lookin' through painted glass
For dignity.

Dignity is a woman who knows
Dignity moves like a tropical wind that blows
Into the cities, into the towns
Into the land of the midnight sun.

I’m Searchin' high, I’m searchin' low
Searchin' everywhere I know
Askin' the cops wherever I go
“Have you seen dignity?”

Dunk man listens to the voice he hears
In a crowded room full of covered up mirrors
Lookin' into the lost forgotten years
For dignity.

Don Juan was talkin’ to Don Maguel
Standin’ outside of the gates of hell
They ain’t nothin’ to say and nothin’ to tell
About dignity

Dignity is a woman unspoiled
------------------------------
In the damp woods, on the rivers edge
Near the green green grass of home

Pull into the platform, step off the train
Walk thirty steps, it begins to rain
I’m asking somebody with water on his brain
“Have you seen dignity?”

City’s in a mess and jack hammer***-*-*-*-*-*-*
Buses roll down with burned out seats
A childs’ eyes looks at ************ streets
For dignity

Prince Philip was talking to Miss Mary Lou
She said “Don’t let nobody to see me talkin' to you”
She’s afraid to tell ‘em what she knew
About dignity.

Dignity is a woman that’s light
She don’t tease, she don’t travel at night
Dignity is a woman at peace
Like the hot Egyptian sun

I’m lookin’ east, I’m lookin’ west
See people cursed, see people blessed.
Ask any of them like a man possessed
Have you seen dignity?

Blind man breakin' out of a trance
Puts both of his hands in the pockets of chance
Hoping to find one circumstance
Of dignity

English man stranded in a black heart wind
Combin' his hair back, his future looks thin
Bites the bullet and he looks within
For dignity.

Somebody showed me a picture and I just laughed
Dignity never been photographed
Dignity got no starting point
No beginning, no middle, no end

Lookin’ at a glass that’s half filled
Lookin’ at a dream that’s just been killed
Ask anybody that’s strong willed
“Have you seen dignity?”

Ain’t Talkin’

As I walked out tonight in the mystic garden
The wounded flowers were dangling from the vine
I was passing by yon cool and crystal fountain
Someone hit me from behind

Ain't talking, just walking
Through this weary world of woe
Heart burning, still yearning
No one on earth would ever know

They say prayer has the power to heal
So pray for me mother
In the human heart an evil spirit can dwell
I am trying to love my neighbour and do good unto others
But oh, mother, things ain't going well

Ain't talking, just walking
I'll burn that bridge before you get across
Heart burning, still yearning
There'll be no mercy for you once you've lost

I'm all worn out from by weeping
My eyes are filled with tears and my lips are dry
If I catch my opponents sleeping
I'll slaughter them where they lie

Ain't talking, just walking
Through the world mysterious and vague
Heart burning, still yearning
Walking through the cities of the plague

Well, the whole world is filled with speculation
The whole world that people say is round
I’ve got no time for idle conversation
I need to find a doctor in this town

Ain't talking, just walking
All rails leading to the west
Heart burning, still yearning
I’m going to throw myself upon your loving breast

It’s the first new day of a brand new glorious autumn
The Queen of Love is comin’ across the grass
Never call her anything but madam
No one flirts with her or even makes a pass

Ain't talking, just walking
Standing outside the gates of ----
Heart burning, still yearning
Take a little trip down Primrose -----


I’ve got the worst old feeling and it’s getting stronger
I’m worn out with public service I’m beginning to crack
I won’t stay on any longer
I’ll avenge my father’s death, then step back

Ain't talking, just walking
Hand me down my walking cane
Heart burning, still yearning
Trying to get you out of my miserable brain

As I walked out tonight in the mystic garden
The wounded flowers were dangling from the vine
I was passing by yon cool and crystal fountain
Someone hit me from behind

Ain't talking, just walking
You’re right up high and down you go
Heart burning, still yearning
No one on earth could ever know

Can’t Wait

I can't wait, wait for you to change your mind
I can't wait, waitin’ is just makin’ me go blind
Do you ever lay awake at night, you’re face turned to the wall
Doubting in your thoughtlessness and cut off from it all
I don’t know
Baby for you it’s nothing late
But as for me
I don't know how much longer I can wait.

It’s got to end
Everything about it just feels wrong
I pretend, being close to her is where I don’t belong
Well my back is to the sun because the light is too intense
I can see what everybody in the world is up against
I’ll stay here, where I can ????????????????
And I don't know how much longer I can wait.


Skies are gray, and I think of her a lot
I can’t say if I want the pain to end or not
Well the blindness is overtaking me, there’s
I don’t know where it starts or where it’s coming from
That’s how it is, when I’m trying to concentrate
And I don't know how much longer I can wait.

I’ve been drinking, drinking forbidden juices
I’ve been living, living on lame excuses

My hands are cold, the end of time has just begun
I’m getting old, anything can happen now to anyone
I walk across the floor ‘til I wear out my shoes
You think you’ve lost it all, there’s always more to lose
I’m stone clear, she can keep my head on straight
And I don't know how much longer I can wait.

Can't Wait:

I would say it's either

"I'll stay here, where I can feel the hand of fate"
or
"I'll stay here, where I can fear the hand of fate"

I'm quite happy with it being both/either - as both make a great lyric....!

I think it is:



Little by little, bit by bit
Everyday I’m becomin’ more of a hypocrite
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more.

Brilliant line!

In Someday Baby, I'm hearing "You're potentially dangerous and not worthy of trust" which is a nice line if its correct.

That's my theme song slim, what the shit?

I hear the three lines mentioned as the posters do (I hear feel the hand of fate---or maybe just assumed it).

Long time since this thread was active, but since the song is very active for me right now...

Ain't talking, just walking
Standing outside the gates of WRATH
Heart burning, still yearning
Take a little trip down THE Primrose PATH

And...

It’s the first new day of a GRAND AND glorious autumn
The Queen of Love is comin’ across the grass
NONE DARE call her anything but madam
No one flirts with her or even makes a pass.

Can't Wait... I hear

I'll stay here, where I can feel ahead of fate (great line)

plus

Drowning (not doubting) in your thoughtlessness
