Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got some money 'cause i just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way

I got in town a month ago, I seen a lotta girls since then
If I could meet 'em I could get 'em but as yet I haven't met 'em
That's why I'm in the shape I'm in

Here another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got some money 'cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way

Another fella told me he had a sister who looked just fine
Instead of being my deliverance, she had a strange resemblance
to a cat named Frankenstein

Here's another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got some money 'cause I just got paid
How I wish I had some chick to talk to
I'm in an awful way

(Here it is another weekend and I ain't got nobody
Man if I was back home I'd be swinging
Two chicks on my arm
Aww yeah
Listen to me huh)

It's hard on a fella, when he don't know his way around
If I don't find me a honey to help me spend my money
I'm gonna have to blow this town

Here it's another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got some money 'cause I just got paid
How I wish I had some chick to talk to
I'm in an awful way

(chorus to fade)

I love this song. I must admit I am probably, until now, only familiar to the Cat Stevens cover.
 
Me too!  I didn't even realize it was a cover until just now.

I need to find time to watch this soon.
 
same here, Killa!  (LOL) - I started it and watched the first 20 minutes or so....was pretty good and I'll maybe finish it this weekend. 

The story is rather odd, and Sam Cooke was in the thick of things during the civil rights changes....was "friends" with Malcolm X, MLK Jr., Ray Charles, Mohammed Ali, etc., and I'm gonna guess that his MURDER was somehow related to that...

And any other Sam Cooke tracks that BillG plays will be welcomed by me....LLRP!!

well damn-- shot and killed at age 33? all this time I had no idea he died so young. Curious what the details are on the 'justifiable homocide'.
These lyrics will trigger the feminists
Love it Love you
YES!!  The KING of Soul!  I rate this a 9 just cuz his voice is so freaking awesome, and he created one of my favorite genres of music.  Seriously, what a short and important career he had, eh? Speaking of which, has anyone seen the movie "Lady You Shot Me: Life and Death of Sam Cooke" and if so...was it any good?  Long Live RP!!
Not played in three years.  Why's that?
Wow! Is this song new to RP? How did we live without it here all these years? {#Dancingbanana}
